Whats for Dinner, Monday - July 24th?

I'm marinating some chicken breasts with, green, red and yellow bellpeppers, red onion and cherry tomatoes. The marinade consistes of Garlic, EVOO and Lemon Pepper. Before I grill them I'm going to splash in some fresh lemon juice. I'm going to make kaboobs and grill them. I'm still not sure about the sides yet.

I'm making SizzlininIN's lemon herb chicken.
It'll have to be a late dinner though since it involves turning the oven on.

We'll just have a salad with it.

dinner tonight is still rather up in the air as I'm not sure what the menu will be yet. it's hot here too, just like other places around the globe and the last two nights, it's been turning on the oven which (I too) would like to avoid.

I think I'll check out bargains on jumbo prawns, see if anyone has them on sale, and if so, I'll buy some, butterfly them, stuff them with jack cheese, wrap in bacon, and grill with a baste of Italian salad dressing over the top. to which fried potatoes and grilled asparagus will complete the dinner if I can find the asp!

Along with the Chicken Kaboobs I'm going to make GB's Orzo with Parsley and Lemon Zest. We'll also have Fresh Fruit.

I picked up some Orzo last week on my shopping trip, wanting to try this as I've never eaten it before. Thanks for the recipe GB.

Tonight we're having fish and chips. I was using any type of potatoe for my fries, which is why they came out soggy, so I'm going to try russets as suggested in the french fries thread in the veggie forum.

Leftovers for lunch. I prepped Beef Stoganoff at work last night for the dinner special tonight. I will be having some of that, on rice, with roasted root veggies, that is if the heat doesn't get to me and dull my appetite.

It was our Anniversary today so we went out and did A Taste of Edmonton. That is a yearly festival that falls on our anniversary every year. About 30 local restaurants come out and provide an entree and a dessert. You buy tickets and go around and sample all the things you want. Its wonderful. We are now lying in the basement trying to digest.

you ate so much you could only walk down stairs when you got home? man, that's eatin'...

and wow, you guys must be popular up there in edmonton. the whole city has a festival for your anniversary.

i guess you deserve that when you are married to the king of karma!


tonight, we had take out italian. garden salads; blanched calamari tossed with chopped tomatoes, celery, onion, and garlic in a viniagrette dressing; and scungilli marinara, one order mild, one spicy hot.
the scungilli in this place is incredibly tender and tasty. i asked the manager/cook, and he said they get it fresh, not frozen.
