Whatcha eatin', Saturday, July 19th, 2008?

since the aussies and kiwis are probably already into it, i'm starting the saturday "what's fer" thread. can't let them get too far ahead, you know.

so, what's fer dinner today?

i have to work until 4pm, so i'll probably grill some animal part when i get home. there's chicken breasts, tenders, and legs. and there's some pork chops in the fridge as well.
i'm hoping to be able to pick the first corn from my garden, and i saw a bunch of snap peas that were getting big, and fat, and crunchy.

i also bought some boneless beef short ribs, of which i was thinking of making them braised in red wine, and cooked with carrots, turnips, thyme, and parsley from the garden. i'll put it in the slow cooker, for dinner sunday or monday.

looks like a feast is in store for your family.As for me,i still havent decided.its one of those lazy unhappening days for me,when u r bored to death and u dont wanna do anything at all,just sit back and watch tv or lie down in bed and read something.But thats just a dream for me with 2 small kids.lol.Well maybe i will eventually muster up courage to finally go into the kitchen,and cook some chicken and rice pilaff,with some tomato,onion and cucumber salad,and maybe some mashed turnips to eat with flat bread.

Thank you Tom, that's very thoughtful of you, at the time of this post it's 5pm here and 7pm over there and I have absolutely no idea what we will be having for dinner. The two boys have gone fishing [again] and there's another Mackerel comp. on [again] up in the Whitsundays this time and the weather is absolutely perfect.
Rump steak or Bacon and Eggs or an Omelet or even Vegemite on toast are on the short list, nothing flash for us pair.
------------------------
The Omelets failed in to scrambled eggs

It is very hot and humid here so I am planning on a cold salad platter with all the fixings. Salmon, eggs, green beans, beets, chick peas, cukes, tomato, peas, potato and of course some green lettuce. Crusty bread and strawberry sundaes for dessert.

BT, those sauces are excellent. A tad pricey, but it's worth it. Do not, I repeat, DO NOT serve those to someone who accepts Kraft BBQ sauce as something that tastes good. LOL

Try the wing sauce too. I usually make half BBQ, half wing sauce wings on the barbie.

Our dear friends, Bernard and Annita, talked me into coming to their home for tonight's meal. It'll be kind of early for me since they live 30 miles away and I can't drive at night. I'll have to leave their place just before 8 to get home before it gets dark. I'll probably leave here late afternoonish. Wish we lived closer.

They're our bestest friends whom we used to spend time with and cook together, laugh and goof off. I'm bringing a loaf of N.Y. Times bread that I've added roasted garlic and chopped fresh rosemary to. Didn't want to arrive empty handed.

Other than the bread, I don't know what's on the menu. They're both fabulous cooks so I know whatever it is, it'll be good. Mention was made of cheesecake for dessert. I should probably have dessert first in that case.

Ugh...it's 249 degrees out, so all I can do is cook.

So far I made my eggplant prototype. I made some chili oil and now my nose keeps running. I just made some brats with onions and beer for lunch. I'm making fresh pasta for ravioli tomorrow.....I'm not sure what's for dinner yet.

That bread sounds good, Katie.
I'd like to attempt NYT bread again, but I can never think a day ahead of when I may want some.

oh Katie, that sounds excellent. I hope you have a wonderful time and enjoy yourself.

Just me again and I am doing a variation on last nights supper..

peaches and cream, lightly sprinkeled with vanilla sugar, and hidden under that, a fresh homemade ww brownie

and did i mention that i am making some vanilla ice cream?....that was the original purpose for the brownies

I have no earthly idea!! Dd and grands are coming here to spend the night as we leave tomorrow to spend a week in a cabin in Southern Ohio. (It's going to be bittersweet this year as it's been a family tradition for over 30 years. My uncle who started this passed away one year ago, my grandmother who passed away one month ago and my mom who has dementia and is wheelchair bound won't be there. I'm thinking this will be our last year....) Maybe we'll just order pizza and have a salad of some sort, go for a quick swim and be done with it. lol

BT, I want those sauces of yours. I'll take a thimble vial of each.
MM have a blast at your party, kiss that little one for me.
Katie, I wish I could go with you to that dinner. Your good friends and you will enjoy the day for sure, the bread was a winner of an idea. It can't be beat.
BZ, you're killing me! How good does that sound? YUMMO!
Still I have no idea what or where I'm near but will worry about that much later in the day.

All of you stay as cool as possible.
