I can do this thread today because I am making a fabulous dinner instead of last night (went out) and tomorrow night (going out.)
I am making crab cakes with a delicious and manageable recipe (but they look and taste divine), green beans, and pasta. I make a raspberry vinaigrette that is so easy/tasty to go on mixed greens topped with roasted pecans. This is my standard "gourmet" meal that I treat hubby with when he has been especially sweet.
Okay, here is what I ended up making: I sauted Italian sausage (without the casing) and then added an onion. After the onion was soft, I added some hot sauce. I threw in some left-over brown rice and stirred in some Campbell's Select Southwestern Corn Soup (creamy but with pieces of corn and peppers). It was very tasty and a good use of things I had sitting around.
We are going to have Garlic Roasted Vegetable tossed with Penne & Feta Cheese. It's kinda in between Italian & Greek. Oh, so good. I am also going to bake garlic bread sticks from scratch. We just love garlic. At last but not at least, Tiramisu for desert. Salad is going to be tossed with Blue Cheese Vinaigrette Dressing.
I'm making beef shish kabob with white rice and steamed vegetables. Actually, it's my lunch for tomorrow. I cook my lunch the night before so I can brown bag. I am SO SICK of ordering out so this has been a nice break from all that.
Last night for dinner: I sauteed some portabella mushrooms, steamed a few ears of corn and some carrots, made up a spinach/bosc pear/sweet-salty roasted pecan salad with honey vinaigrette, reheated a garlic roasted chicken I'd purchased from the store earlier that day. Yummy dinner!
