Saturday night dinner menu! 8/4

So nice to see all these menu ideas here... I had to toss in this one that we are having tomorrow night. For you garlic lovers out there... this is pure heaven! For you single guys/gals, you uh... might want to skip this before a date for a day or two. You will be sweating garlic for two days at least after this one.

Tonight we are hitting a local greak restaurant and going to a movie, so nothing home cooked tonight.


Appetizer: Starting off with a fresh greens salad, nothing too fancy.

Main dish: Chicken with 40 cloves! That's right... 40 cloves of garlic, oven roasted in olive oil with a whole chicken cut into pieces and fresh thyme from the garden.

Sides: whole garlic, pearl onions, and new potatos tossed in olive oil and dried rosemary and roasted until slightly browned.

whole grain bread slices, brushed with garlic infused olive oil from the roasted chicken pan, broiled to lightly brown, and covered in the roasted garlic also from the chicken pan.

and lastly... good old fashioned sweet corn. My wife and daughter can't stand green veggies, so I tend to avoid making them when we have salads. Fighting with the daughter to eat them ins't very fun, and I gave up years ago trying to get the wife to eat green veggies. They are way too picky!

Only one day off for me this weekend. Tomorrow, I am going to staff one of our fire lookout towers for the day. I will be working from 8 am to 7 pm. I hope that I don't find any fires. This is what I did when I first started working for the Forest Service. This is where I will be on Saturday. I hope that you all have a wonderful weekend and please be Fire Safe!!

Babbitt Peak Lookout.

Babbitt Peak Lookout 2

In this peak the shutters on are off the windows.

Because I am working so late I will be stopping on the way home and grabbing a hamburger at the local hamburger stand.

DH's uncle is visiting from Arizona and his parents are having there summer cookout. So I'll be eating there. There will most likely be tons of sides and grilled meats such as hamburgers, sausages, hotdogs and who knows what else. So no cooking for mwa.

Today is our regular monthly "date" day and Buck and I will be having a late lunch at a new restaurant. In his never ending search for a good Philly cheese steak, a new restaurant opened in Paducah that boasts the best. Dunno. Here in western Kentucky that seems a little unlikely, but stranger things have happened.

We'll probably just raid the refrigerator for leftovers, probably antipasto salad from last night, when we finally get hungry tonight.

Still hot as the hinges of Hades here, so no cooking tonight...regardless.

Still early here. Caught a second of RR yesterday. She was making a caesar salad & toasted ravioli. (Didn't watch the whole episode.) I have some leftover gazpacho... hmmm - maybe toasted ravioli and 'spacho.

Everything cooked on the Q tonight cause I'm NOT heating up the kitchen for anyone, anything!

- grill roasted potatoes (with lemon and oregano)
- foil baked broccoli and cauliflower (in Memphis Magic BBQ sauce)
- tilapia fillets with dilly sauce (mayo, sour cream, tons of fresh dill)

For the first time in, well, EVER I suppose, I haven't made a salad!

Dessert is watermelon, lots of watermelon!

Checking in from Pittsburgh PA today, man oh man was I hungry for dinner, skipped lunch pretty much I was gaining on lost sleep.

Went out with my brother sister and dad, got a Colossal Cod Sandwhich. It was verrrry tasty. Good ol beer batter and all that jazz.

Tomorrow me and the boys are havin a big shin dig for Fantasy Football Draft Day (in laymans terms, Football Party!) In other words more food than ya can shake a stick at.

im making a good 100 buffalo wings, or perhaps just a buffalo chicken dip.
my brother is gettin hot sausages.
A friend is picking up a local sandwhich called a "Roethlis-Burger" and is getting enough for everyone to split. Hes going to sink about 100 bucks there. Its a local delicacy and the stuff of legend, I have only heard of it, heres some pictures of the "So called RoethlisBurger" who knows which one is authentic...

On Friday, DH was sick of being in the house after putting up ceiling tiles all day (our kitchen is being renovated, and we're doing some of the work), so he wanted to go out to dinner. So the menu I had planned for Friday was moved to Saturday - a starter of caprese salad, then grilled chicken legs with KC BBQ sauce, grilled onions, peppers and zucchini, and grilled corn on the cob that had been soaking in the husks all day. Yummy :-)
