Whats for dinner, Wed October 1st?

Well, fall is falling here. Grey, 58 today is as high as we're getting.

I actually have a plan for once!
Beer can chicken in the oven, mashed taters and GRAVY!
I think I have some frozen green beans somewhere...

How about you?

I'm by myself tonight and have a lasagne in the freezer I've been craving with garlic bread. If I cook it to eat around 7:30pm it will be okay for DH when he gets home at 8:00pm.

We are going to a friends for dinner. He's one of the "GREAT" cooks!!!

I know he's making fish ( I'm sure it'll be a Persian recipe) not sure what else.

I'm bringing a pecan pie cake.

Hi everybody!

That Pecan Pie Cake recipe looks yummy...

No dinner for me Tues/Wed/Thurs anymore, just an energy bar and Starbucks (can't resist Pumpkin Spice, but there is a new one: Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate, I'll hafta add a shot of 'spresso).

...First semester of grad school.. Dual degree.. full-time school/full-time work..

NO TIME FOR COOKING OR GROCERIES Boo hooo. Never realized how much I love strolling down the grocery aisles, just me and my thoughts. Miss all y'all at DC too

Wow, Jill. Good luck - that's a heavy load.

It's Wednesday dinner out night - we're going to a place that serves Asian-inspired tapas. Each of us buys a few and we all share

Oktoberfest dinner. Beef roulade smeared w mustard and wrapped up with bacon & onions, potato pancakes w sour cream & apple sauce, sauerkraut, baked maple apples with vanilla ice cream. The sides folks are bringing - brats, buns, beer & whatever else they wish to grill. It's gonna be about 100 deg again today so, looking forward to the grillin & chillin by the pool. Considered spaetzle & red potato sald, but think it might be too much starch.

How about you?
I guess I finally have to ask...what is beer can chicken?


For this family, I am "throwing" together a casserole with chicken, cheese, broccoli, pasta and stuffing top. The gang is so large I feel like I am cooking for a small army.

Just what it sounds like but you don't have to use beer. Typically cooked on a grill with indirect heat. You can by the little can rack at Walmart.
Here's one I did last week (I think it was) about 45 minutes into the cooking time.

Tonight I am having beef and barley soup, with garlic bread

You plop the chicken down on the can, half filled with whatever you like. I like Dr Pepper. The juice bubbling away really makes the chicken moist.

I must say that is a fine looking chicken that you made! I guess I will try it. Dr. Pepper? Interesting.
