Holy moly kadesma! I wanna eat at your place tonight! I haven't decided whether or not to do pork steaks on the BBQ (its mizzly outside and likely to stay that way) or to make it into BBQ'ed pork cubes and serve it over rice. Oooooooooo...wait, I think I'm going to stir fry it. I have a TON of fresh veggies to do it with. Yep, thats what we're doing. And we'll have a nice big green salad with extra garden veggies. Dessert is going to be a Nutella cake. PA Baker sent me the recipe and its finally cool enough for me to try it out today.

Slow roast lamb in red wine.

Browned off a leg of lamb in the pan in some hot oil, stuck in some chunky onions, carrots, pots, rosemary and half a bottle of red wine, covered with foil and stuck in oven at gas mark 3.

It's been in for 4 hours so far and just turned temp right down. Just need to wait for wife to get home after an afternoon out.

Man I'm hungry!

DH has requested Penne pasta with Italian Sausage in red sauce and we finally have enough lemon cucumbers for a nice salad with home grown grape tomatoes.

Katie H 08-19-2007 01:34 PM

Fried tilapia crusted with panko crumbs, tossed salad, toasted baguette with tapenade.

Grilled tuna steaks with grilled romaine salad topped with bleu cheese dressing for DH and Italian dressing for me, and imitation crab pasta salad.

Note: I ended up marinating my tuna steak with Ken's Asian Ginger, Soy and Sesame salad dressing and using it on the tuna/romaine salad. DH marinated his with peanut oil and Paul Prudhomme's Fish Blackening stuff. Turned out very well.

We had a lot of Alaskan crab legs leftover from a boil yesterday, so I spent some time to shell the leftovers and ended up with nearly 1.5 ponds of Alaskan crab meat. So, tonight it will be grilled Beef Petite Tender, Crab Cakes with Remoulade sauce, West Indies Crab salad, and Potato Ragout.

We are having BLT's, corn on the cob and mac n cheese, yucky rainy day in the camper today - boringggg !

SurvivorGirl 08-19-2007 05:46 PM

tonight is leftover night. We're trying to clear up some space in the fridge (which means that I can't make what I wanted to make - pot stickers) so it's prolly going to be, noodles with mushroom sauce and the soy beef strips (:glare:not a fan of the beef strips). along with some carrots, steamed, and I'm going to make these peas which I've made before and loved:smile:


BBQ Mikey 08-19-2007 06:14 PM

oh man

I just made a fine cheese steak with the end of an Italian bread loaf, amish country flat steaks (really good steak ums) and shredded mozzarella. Added tomato slices and some of my slaw, a bit of ketchup. Not exactly fine dining, but it was very fine :biggrin:

Angie 08-19-2007 07:05 PM

Ground sirloin simmered in chicken broth with onions, salt and pepper.

Red potatoes and onions coated with oil/lemon juice/cracked pepper/seasoning salt/parsley and then put under the broiler to brown.

Sweet corn on the cob.

Well, originally I was going to grill some quail along with some veggie sides, but the combination of scattered showers plus the Anthony Bourdain "No Reservations" mini-marathon that's been going on since noon sort of kaboshed that. I ended up doing some (very minor - lol!!) housework & playing with my new DVD recorder (nothing like having Bourdain episodes at my beck & call - lol!!!) while my husband surprising me by coming home with turkey taco fixings (what a guy!!!!). So that's what we had - delicious, easy, & quick enough to whip up inbetween "No Reservations" episodes - lol!!!!

Dave Hutchins 08-19-2007 10:41 PM

I ate on the cheap Bacon and eggs, home fries, Iced tea

we went back to weed orchards again today, so after a fun day of picking peaches, plums, ginger and jonah gold apples, red and regular bartlett pears, watermelons, and fresh supersweet corn, we had no time to cook. so, it was takeout italian again.

insalata mista, calamari affogati, chicken piccata, linguini, and cavatelli with broccoli.

Caine 08-20-2007 11:49 AM

I made jambalaya with andouile sausage and shrimps, which you will most likely see in reruns at least one day further into this week. Beverage was Coke Zero, and dessert was chocolate ice cream with whipped cream.

Loprraine 08-20-2007 12:34 PM

Last night was comfort food. Beer butt chicken, smashed potatoes, cauliflour with cheese sauce.

Chipotle Tom 08-20-2007 01:18 PM

I don't normally post to these threads because I never know what DW will want for dinner, but I had to post last night's dinner.

We had butter sauteed shrimp and asparagus. I made a side salad for DW, but I wasn't hungry enough to eat a salad too.

The shrimp turned out really good. My 4yo daughter hugged my leg and said "daddy, you're the best shrimp-cooker ever!" It made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Ok, back to work.

[edited to add] I used some homemade roasted garlic butter to do the sauteeing. I think it added a lot of flavor! [\edit]
