What's for Dinner, Tuesday December 30th

Wow, Sattie must be sleeping late....she usually has this started by now.

I know I am doing an eggplant parmigiana because I have one to use up. Not sure what to have with it.

What is everyone else having?

I need suggestions for that left-over steak. If I slice it and make "something" out of it it will make a good dinner tonight. It's ribeye.

uh oh - just remembered, DH is at home today...there might not be ANY left over by the time I get home

I always like using steak like that over a salad KE. And this may sound simple, but if I can find a nice ripe beef steak tomato, I love a good tomato with sliced steak!!! Sorry I could not come up with anything better....

On the salad, you could add green beans and red taters... with a balsamic dressing, it makes it a real meal. That way you are not disrespecting the steak!

Chicken Ajillo (with garlic and white wine) and sauteed dandelion greens.

Have to have everything cleared away by 9 PM for the Kennedy Center Honors Show.

I have always wanted to go there! One of these days I will make it to NYC. Have a pickle for me, Vera!

I would slice it very thinly and then make a stirfry with veggies & noodles.

I'm out with the boys tonight. The others had mince, mashed potato and vegetables.

Aria, I make crustless quiche all the time because DH can't have flour. I think you are referring to the "bisquick" style, but what I do is just spray or grease my quiche dish and pour my filling into it. Comes out great. Just cut your milk/cream down a little.

This is just the way I use up leftover steak. I like to add little chunks of goat or blue cheese and some thinly sliced red onions too.

Dang! Now I'm hungry for a steak salad.

Oh yeah, as to what we are having. DH isn't well so he'll eat up the rest of the chicken soup I made him yesterday. DS and I will have scrambled eggs with cream cheese and chives, English muffins and these yummy turkey maple/apple sausages I have.

*jealous* that sounds reeeeally good!

I am making chicken paninis tonight... grilled chicken all sliced up with red/yellow/orange bell pepper, red onion, mozz cheese slices and pesto on ciabatta bread. Not sure what to have with it, but they are pretty filling so maybe nothing
