Today's dinner, Oct 11th

My plans today are to cook some food!
I plan on making Sophie's Lazy Golumpki, courtesy DaveSoMD's recipe he posted a while back. And also some grilled chicken thighs ala Goodweed's sriracha marinade. I might even try to whip up some coleslaw made from scratch rather than a bag
I am hungry!

And you???

Wow - your dinner sounds awesome. I'm just picking up a lamb curry and a mango lassie from my local Indian restaurant. I'm home alone this weekend, so I decided to take the night off and not cook.

I took last night off, Toots, which is why I'm making a lot tonight. The lazy golumpki is really for tomorrow, but I'm sure I'll "try some" tonight.

Giant ham, scalloped potatoes, some cooked veggie (likely broccoli and cheese sauce), dinner rolls, a HUGE salad (likely green with lots of tomatoes but possibly caesar) and for dessert...maybe lemon bars? I haven't decided yet. I don't really know how many I'm feeding either!

Roast chicken, veggies, mashed potatoes and gravy, and if I get very ambitious I might make some home-made bread to go with it. Maybe some pumpkin bread for dessert.

We're having sausage and noodle casserole made with homemade noodles that I bought from the Mennonites at Farmers' Market. Talk about comfort food!

I doing spare ribs on the gas grill. I'm not messing up this time and I'm not foiling either, but experimenting with a water tray. Low temps and longer cooking time. Wood chips in box too.
I'm not messing up.

Another chicken meal here. I bought a plump roaster that I filled with well-seasoned root vegetables. Am adding a romaine salad with celery, tomatoes, peppers, onions, cucumbers and anything else in the refrigerator.

We spent the day in Central Park doing a historical walking tour by Big Onion. If you ever get the chance, it was great. Went down to St. Mark's to Paul's for burgers after that.

But, I bought food for dinner, and I am loathe to put anything in the freezer, so....

First course is stuffed pears (stuffed with bleu and pancetta) with a balsamic fig glaze.

Second course is slow roasted pork hocks topped with pan seared scallops on a bed of roasted corn and crab risotto.

Bananas Foster bread pudding for dessert.

Paddy cocktails for happy hour and merlot with dinner.
