First off, it's Tuesday August 7. Tonight DH and I are going to Smithfield Station for dinner. It is on the banks of the James River and everyone says it is really nice. We are celebrating 25 years of marriage today! Can't afford more than a good meal out since we are paying college tuitions as well. But it will be nice to relax on the banks and enjoy each others company.

All fixed now. That's okay. Barb L is doing better. She was off by a month a couple of days ago. Three cheers for Barb!

!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~
this is what I'm making for myself tonight.
my sweet friend, MM, helped me realize the goodness of this very easy meal.
Italian Panzanella and more delicious recipes, smart cooking tips, and video demonstrations on marthastewart.com
being alone still, I can make just what I want to eat and a light salad with protein added, is my pleasure.
using my leftover NYTimes bread as the main star!

We are either having Rib Eye Steak and some sides. Not sure of the sides yet. Probably quick sides. Possibly a salad. I have some pasta sides for quick sides and frozen veggies in the freezor.

Or we are grabbing subs.

I'm waiting for DH to get home to decide.

Had baked fish fillets on the menu but, since it's so hot today, I'm going to bread them with panko crumbs and pan-fry them. We'll have a salad of baby spinach to go with. Too hot to cook OR eat.

Those seared scallops Keltin posted in another thread have me wanting those, really bad And now the thought of panzanella, too. What to do, what to do...

[edited] I'm seriously thinking about making this: Frutti di Mare Recipe: Recipes: Food Network aka Fruit of the Sea.

Too late to start cooking now, so me and the missus are going to our local Indian. It's literally round the corner and, although unlicensed, they do allow you to take your own wine in (no corkage either).

Makes for a very nice evening :)

We changer our mind. Now we are cooking a Hannaford Brand Pepperoni Pizza at some point tonight.

My whole family loves Chinese BBQ'd pork, soooo a friend sent me two tenderloins prepared this way..I'm slicing them super thin then piling them on warm buttered french rolls..Every one can add the gravy type thing he sent to us which is yummy and then add anything they want to the sandwich,tomatoe,lettuce,sweet onion, avocado etc. I made a chinese type salad minus the chicken, and some deep fried tempura asparagus. And we have coconut ice cream for dessert...Me, I take the sandwich straight up wuth only the butter and gravy and then stand back I love coconut ice cream...

We have a favorite Chinese place we go to about once a month and I get it from them. I have no idea where they get it..I've never seen it in stores except with pineapple added to it..But you just gave me an idea, I just picked up the goodies to make some vanilla, and I have some coconut milk, I'm going to try making some myself tomorrow...Lets see what I can do with it...Okay, I just had to try it soooo, I've got a batch going now and we shall see if I made the grade.
