The What's For Dinner Tonight Chat

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Tonight I made my favorite "Oh my goodness it's almost 5 what am I going to make tonight?" dinner. Something I thought would never again be my old stand by. Yummy grilled cheese sandwiches with tomatoes, fresh tossed salad and yummy acorn squash mango soup. Just cooked it up with some Rudi's gluten-free bread fresh mozzarella with roma tomato slices and basil leaves and the yummy acorn squash mango soup I have bought for years is gluten free!

Hubs' sweet Aunt was here for dinner yesterday (hence the late post) but she is so easy to cook for and I LOVE having her here.

Can you imagine an 84- year- old who will happily eat ANYTHING you give her (and who loves her Manhattans? :) ). She is such a fun gal!

She feasted on:

Shrimp cocktail

Tapenade and garlic toasts

artichoke and spinach dip

Filet mignon

Grilled baby potatoes

corn on the cob (the farm down the road has stuff that makes you cry---- it is so good)

Almond pound cake with our blueberries (they finally came in--yaay!!! )

Fresh whipped cream

That is such a great word!

Poor hubby is missing his nutritionally defunct hamburger helper so he looked up a recipe to make some. I've been known to eat all sorts of things that I wouldn't call good but aren't really bad either so as long as it doesn't suck I'll at least be satisfied if not happy.

I've got some cucumber salad in the fridge to go with it too, very yummy. He had brought in a couple cucumbers yesterday before heading to work and I sort of felt like it was time for me to have a few. He was horrified at the idea that his cucumbers had become something other than pickles. :lol:

Pasta Puttanesca

(I have always loved the story behind this dish) ;)

It's full of bold flavors. The tomatoes, basil, & parsley from my garden...and ripe greek olives, garlic, EVOO, capers, anchovies...I do not even cook my sauce..it marinates in a bowl on the counter for a n hour or so. Just cook up the pasta and toss...outrageous.

Me, too. There are so many stories behind dishes - I love reading about them as well as food culture and history. It makes ingredients even more exciting than they already are! :D

exciting is one word. :lol: :lol:

should I "spill"??

the only caveat I have is....this sauce does not need to be cooked!! That ruins all the fresh flavors.

Like Imam Bayiildi - "the priest fainted" at the deliciousness of the eggplant dish :D I used to enjoy making that in my tomato-eating days.
