Saturday - June 7th. What's for dinner?

No one eating tonight? Well, Buck and I will probably just be grazing the refrigerator. Today's our monthly "Date Day," and will have a late, filling lunch.

What's everyone else doing?

Well, as I am not sure how many people I am cooking for again, I have decided to make Chinese tonight - I can make lots easily and leftovers are great!

Beef and broccoli with some pieces of sirloin I didn't use last night.
Bok Choy Chicken
Rice
Mushroom Chow Mein
Vegetable Chop Suey
Egg Fu Yong

I don't know either. Would like to take in a restaurant though. Perhaps I'll look for one I've/we've not tried. Don't know yet what we're hungry for so not sure but one thing for certain, food will enter into this mouth.

Shamailia,
I would be very interested in how you make your sweetcorn sauce. It sounds yummy!

Starting with a box of Luzianne Etoufee..
adding sauteed onion, garlic, celery, peppers
Then some gumbo and tomatoes.
For "protein", a bit of crawfish, touch of sausage,
taste of catfish and maybe some shrimps.

Very warm here. Whew! I picked up a couple of rib eyes to grill along with mashed potatoes, iceburg wedge with blue cheese and tomato, fresh bread, ripe cheese and dessert is a raspberry jelly roll (yes I bought it) Of course a bottle or two of red.

First, we watch the Belmont Stakes and route for Big Brown...while drinking mojitos. Lou makes a great mojito.

First course is blueberries and orange segments with ricotta salada cheese (it's a firm ricotta cheese that can be sliced, very mild flavour), roasted shallots served over arugula from the garden. I'll make a dressing of honey, mustard, oil and poppy seeds.

Dinner is gemelli pasta with bay scallops, fresh peas, pancetta, butter, wine and a small amount of heavy cream.

Homemade chocolate waffles and frozen strawberry yogurt for dessert.

Ditto on wanting to know more about the garlic mash and sweetcorn sauce.

No idea what I'm having yet. I had a couple cold chicken thighs for a snack a couple hours ago. I grilled them last night. I may grill the other pack of thighs again tonight, but I really have a taste for steak, I just don't feel like driving to the store to get one. Maybe a ride to the store on the bike is in store if the weather opens up again.
Too early to decide.
