Monday 23rd April...what's cooking?

I have a couple of T bone steaks (DH is away tomorrow night so I'm giving him some red meat for his homing instincts, lol). I was planning to serve them plain with salad, but I'm now wondering if it would be too weird to make a side of criudite and a blue cheese dip/steak sauce? Opinions please!

I've got a Thai Coconut Chicken recipe that I want to give a shot at here at home. I did it at work Friday night. The only problem will be, "Will the kids eat it or not?"

I'm probably going to do that for lunch, so no telling what's for dinner.

Leftover spaghetti from last night. I wish I had a good loaf of bread to make garlic toast.

Dessert will be kahlua mousse pie that is leftover from a potluck I went to last Friday.

Ours is a recycled dinner too

All the leftover veggies made into bubble and squeak and topped with crispy bacon rashers. Lovely!

Grilled teriyaki chicken and fried rice. Can you believe it's supposed to hit 90 degrees here today?!? I'm going to get myself motivated here and make dinner now while the kitchen is cool and Sofie's napping so that I don't have to worry about it later. I figure that what I have planned can reheat easily.

Tonight's my night to raid the fridge. Buck will be out for a dinner meeting. There are plenty of leftovers to tempt me.

I think the side of criudite and a blue cheese dip/steak sauce would be great. I like things that are different. Although yummy - steak and salad are so - well, steak and salad.

Just my opinion.

I'm having left over pork loin with scalloped potatoes and veg.

Thanks cookmex...it felt a bit odd, but (its 9:15 here) thats what I did...almost. I served the steak as...well, steak and put blue chees ontop of DH's, and then a second plate of crudite with balsamic which was great...very meaty and manly, but it meant I had balsamic rather than blue cheese (my preference for a couple of reasons!) and I got some red meat in front of DH and we were both happy. It just felt odd to serve just steak on a plate!

Cooking on the grill tonight: chicken breasts, shrimp, and various vegetables on kabobs (potatoes, mushrooms, red onion, cherry tomatoes), slices of kielbasa, and pablano peppers stuffed with cheese and salsa.
