Dinner, Tuesday, July 31?

I can't believe it's the end of July already!!!

Here, what we have for dinner depends on what I find in the tomato patch. If there are any ripe, we'll have BLTs with peppered bacon and a tossed salad. If none are ripe enough yet, it'll be cheese omelets, bacon and English muffins with homemade strawberry jam.

I woke up with such a craving for chili that I just finished making a big pot. I couldn't wait so I'm having a bowl for lunch.....LOL! I know its not the weather for this but who cares the tastebuds overruled. We'll have grilled cheese sandwiches to go along with it. This meal always warms my heart and soul.....its comfort food and reminds me of mom.

I'm not sure yet. I have a sick child on my hands. I have hamburger meat thawing out. Cheeseburgers on the grill perhaps or a quick meatloaf. I will have to have DH stop and pick up some lettuce and tomatoes. Neighbor gave us some cucumbers from his garden. So maybe a salad as well. Not sure what else. It's up in the air. I'm going into my 9th month of pregancy and dinners will be probably thought up one day at a time and most likely will be as easy as they can get. It will depend on many factors both before and after the baby is born. Lately, I've been pretty tired.

Perennial favorite is going to be Thai Fish Cakes.

Normally accompanied by a sweet-chili dipping sauce but I ran out last time I served this and ended up using a Chinese Plum sauce (normally had with duck). I must say it went VERY well.

Not sure what else to serve it with - salad probably unless I get some divine inspiration from somewhere!

Well, here at work they are getting burgers, fries and coleslaw with either apple or blueberry pie for dessert.

At home, Ken is going to BBQ pork steaks, and we will have a lovely fresh green salad and I have no idea what carb he will do. I'm going to guess pasta as potatoes might be too tough to coordinate and he hates rice. LOL.

I made chicken fajitas with store packaged southwestern flavored chicken strips. I did the onions and peppers, added chicken to heat and boy was that chicken awful. Slippery, fatty, just plain yuk. Never again will I try a shortcut like that. All the work for toppings and such just to have an inferior product. Oh well my ice cream sandwich was good.

We're having breakfast for dinner - pancakes, bacon and scrambled eggs. The kids get the urge for this sometimes since none of us are big eaters in the morning.

Sauteed asparagus, yellow peppers, cherry tomatoes, bay scallops, olive oil, chili flakes, s&p, tossed with Barilla Plus pasta. I got this organic bread that was awesome and we dipped in a mixture of olive oil, balsamic, salt, pepper, chili flakes. Verdicchio for a beverage.

we had dw's meatloaf again, with the new york bold onions. and boiled spuds, cheesey broccoli, and i made a salad from my garden of mesculun, cukes, zukes, and tomatoes, in ranch dressing.

ya know, i hated meatloaf as a kid, but these onions make this more than just edible. very tasty, in fact. i'm starting to think my wife might be worth keeping...

here's the onion link again: New York Bold Onions
