Can't help you, still wondering myself.
Maybe a lentil soup; more likely a stir fry.
Perhaps a creole cajun rice and sausage and veggies creation....

Pizza would be good too.....

I've got a third of a rack left from ribs the other night. That will be my meat. Then I'll cook a few ears of corn and a potato on the grill to go along with it.

I'm trying the oven-fried rice recipe tonight. I defrosted the deep freezer this past weekend and found some shredded chicken that needs to be used. Thought I'd add that to the rice and then have watermelon for desert.

Got chicken breasts on sale yesterday and last night someone took 1 slice out of a big lemon for their vodka & tonic so I guess it sounds like a chicken piccata kinda night with a side of sauteed black beans and spinach.

Didn't you just make tacos last night, too?

Can't have tacos too often. It's the perfect mixture of everything.

pot roast that is simmering with fresh out of the garden onions, garlic, celery and carrots, with baked yukon gold potatoes, cole slaw and peach cobbler for a rare dessert.

okay, got it. have chicken breast strips in the freezer, gotta get 'em out for defrosting. making a marinade of [you're gonna croak] strawberry jam and butter, tuscan balsamic vinegar, and tuscan truffle oil that is overdue to be opened from our trip. I'll reduce down the sauce, then let the chicken soak in it the rest of the day before a quick stir fry with broccoli/carrots/scallions/shallots/English cukes/ and I'll finish with corn starch slurry. it'll get piled up over buttered steamy noodles.
romaine lettuce with red cabbage, radishes, beets and walnuts with viniagarette.
the man should get dessert so not sure yet what that'll be, maybe just a jello, sourcream, cream cheese parfeit with flavored honey whipped cream.

Do you cook the bacon on the grill, too? You have to watch for flare ups, but I like it that way. And it's one less dirty pan.

I haven't but that's a good idea. It's turkey bacon, already cooked, but we brown it anyway. We can put some foil down first and then slap it on. Thanks for the idea!
