Dinner Wednesday Aug 22

Anyone got plans yet? I have a chicken brining as we speak. (little garlic and thyme, nothing too fancy) Think I'll do some roasted root veggies with it and maybe a nice salad. I have some blueberries I need to use up so that will feature in dessert tonight. What about you guys?

since our trip to the orchard sunday, we've been inhaling peaches, nectarines, plums, and jonah gold apples every night. and my raspberries at home are exploding again.

so, i'm sure it'll be more fruit salad tonight for starters.
and steamed supersweet corn. oh, the corn...


then i have skirt steaks marinating in italian dressing, and some locally made hot italian sausage ready for the grill. i'll probably fry some onions, pepper, fennels seeds, hot pepper flakes, and a little tomato sauce to make sammiches with the saus-eege, or the steaks. gotta remember to stop at the bakery for portugese rolls.

mushrooms and a little garlic is always a good start :)
perhaps some onion coarsely diced and bell pepper, then serve it with some basmati rice.

C`mon, you know what to do ;)

In addition to YT's suggestions, how about some celery and fresh grated ginger? Maybe scallions or chives? Top with a sprinkle of sesame seeds or peanuts and a drizzle of sesame oil.

Trip to the beach had to be put on hold so Dh is taking me to a family run restaurant that we both love..They grow all their own veggies and fruit, and their steaks and chicken are yummy..So I already know it's going to be a steak sammie on two thick slices of french bread soaked in meat juice, mushrooms, tomatoes, sliced onions, pickles and the best fries ever, plus before this a trip to a really nice salad bar..Can hardly wait for the salad and fruit...
