So, what's for dinner at your place tonight?

We're having beans cooked slow with onion and a country ham hock. We'll serve 'em over sticky rice with corn cakes cooked on the griddle with a little whole kernel corn in them. We use cranberry beans because they're big and meaty. One of my favorite, LBYM meals.

So, what's cookin' at your table tonight?

Brown rice with garlic, Broccolini , undecided on a small salad or asparagus with it. Trying to remove meat proteins at least two times a week.

Three couples joining us for a dinner party (in about 20 minutes - guess I'd better shower). A gourmet version of spaghetti and meatballs for the entree, don't know what is being brought in for appetizers (something about scallops), Caesar salad, mystery dessert but it will be good.

Chicken and tofu spinach salad (the chicken and tofu sauteed in a touch of sesame oil and with garlic). Salad includes a sesame soy sauce dressing along with mandarin oranges, tomatoes, snow peas, and slivered almonds. Yum!

No way am I COOKING on Saturday night!

Frank took me to an upscale restaurant by the marina, and I ordered the herb roasted chicken which came with Lyonnaise potatos and sauteed green beans.

While we were waiting for our meals, we were brought fresh, hot French bread and butter, and also we got an order of onion rings. Oh, and iced tea.

The chicken was to die for!! Mmmm.

Nothing at my place, but did go out.

Chicken fajitas, beans, rice and a crappy margarita. Came home and made my own. Margarita that is.

I got lazy tonight. Made a nice slaw of red cabbage and carrots with a dressing of mayo, salt, pepper, tabasco, whole grain mustard, honey, and sherry vinegar with a roast chicken from costco. Cut me some slack, I spent all day tearing up and leveling the floor in one of the bedrooms and taking Gabe on a shopping spree to 3 hardware stores, where every knob was turned, every button pushed, every lever thrown and every tractor pretend-driven.

Tomorrow AM is another story. I'm planning a benedict of a toasted round of hearty multigrain bread, topped with a thin little filet mignon cooked in butter (I cut the filets myself from the primal cut), topped with a poached egg and hollandaise sauce. With a side of sauteed wild mushrooms and broiled sliced heirloom tomatoes from the local CSA topped with irish cheddar.

In other news, I'll be having marital relations after breakfast tomorrow.
