What's for Dinner Thursday July 9th?

I planning on fixing broccoli with ricotta cheese over pasta

I have several zucchinis looking at me, but doubt they make it in this dish

What are you fixing?

Kebabs of tofu, peppers, zucchini, and pineapple. I'll prolly serve them over some kind of grain...I haven't decided which one yet.....maybe some kind of asian noodle like mai fun or soba. Then a salad of steamed carrots and beets with an orange dressing. I'm having guests.

I had a huge late lunch out with friends today, so I'll probably just poke around in the refrigerator for something to nibble on.

CJ, lunch was awesome. We ate at THE best Mexican restaurant in Paducah. Ate for nearly 2 hours and talked, talked, talked. I didn't know there were that many words that could be spoken.

We started with their homemade salsa and warmed chips, followed by guacamole that is always "to die for," then I had the shredded beef enchiladas with refried beans and Spanish rice. Lots of food and I still had soapilillas for dessert. Coated in cinnamon-sugar and drizzled with honey. Omigosh! Roll me out the door.

I was planning to make a crab cake sandwich with some local tomatoes. But the only crab I could find was frozen. So I bought some fish filets and made a sandwich.

We're having leftovers from takeout after arriving home yesterday.

I love getting Ideas about all the wonderful things other folks are "whipping up", but I am so glad that my family doesn't read these posts - I'd have an upraising on my hands!
