Saturday, dinner plans, April 21, 2007

What's anyone doing for dinner tonight?
It'll be a movie or a nap for me for dinner.
How about everyone else.

We are having our gandson's 5th birthday party at our house tonight. He's mom and dad are bring all of the food except the french fries. My DH will be making those. Our daughter and son-in-law just got back from a Puerto Vallarta, Mexico vacation late last night. Can't wait to hear all about their trip. They were there for 10 days.

It's going to be Thanksgiving in April (this is April, right?) tomorrow because I still have that free Butterball turkey from last Thanksgiving that needs to be used, and I need my son to come to my house because I need his truck to pick up my new barbeque grill and patio set from Home Depot. They definitely won't fit in the Lincoln!

Because of this, I will be spending most of today preparing everything from cornbread for the stuffing, to the usual side dishes, to apple and/or pumpkin pie(s) for dessert, so I'll spend the day picking at everything and hungry for nothing.

Caine, isn't it fun to have a non-Thanksgiving turkey dinner? It always tastes like such a treat!

We are up to our eyeballs in mulch today. Our back yard has a very large slope that is too steep for anything but some mulch and landscaping on it. The previous home owners never put weed barrier under the mulch so for the last two years we've spent every weekend weeding the blasted thing. This year, no more! We put down weed barrier yesterday, we've had 30 cubic yards of mulch delivered, and we're spending the day spreading it. I've had Sofie duty so far but Mom's coming by this afternoon to play with her so I can lend DH a hand. All of that being said, I think we'll be getting some sort of take out this evening. I have a hunch we'll be awfully sore and tired!

Lol, I am the same way... I very rarely buy crisps, usually I don't even go near that section of the supermarket and as long as I maintain this habit, I don't even miss them. However if I DO grab a bag on a whim, boy I can't stop!! Hey at least you managed to stop in time to save some for Michael, which is good!!

Probably we do some pasta with mushroom asparagus and sourcream sauce, and mozzarella sheet rolled up with smoked salmon and rocket. yum!

Your supper sounds good! Yep, there are whole aisle of the supermarket I don't really know.....if I don't go down them I don't feel deprived! I've I wander down them (like checking what we can get for free) then I get eyes bigger than my stomach, and boy do I know it tonight.....oh boy, I did like those crisps though.....NO!

Have you ever seen the infamous, and "maledettamente" correct jingle of Lay's potato chips (American counterpart of Walkers crisps)?

No one can eat just one!

Alix, if I was not going out to dinner with the family tonight I would come to your house. You have just described one of my favorite meals. Yum!!

My family and I are going to our annual spring event to support the local volunteer fire department - an Indian taco feed. I cannot wait. Indian tacos are a favorite of mine.

We enjoyed our first outdoor charcoal grill dinner of the season last night.

Had turkey burgers on big crusty rolls with all the trimmings (blue cheese, "hot-&-spicy" ketchup, dill relish, thinly-sliced raw Vidalia onion, etc., etc.). Served them with a simple side of husband's favorite canned "vegetarian" baked beans.
