I plan to make Pioneer Womans Chicken Spaghetti :and Buttery Thyme Bread. I will serve with a salad(if I can get dh to stop for fresh tomatoes and cucumbers) or green veggie.

Chicken breasts, breaded and baked with my current favourite salad:

Mixed bean sprouts (lentils, mung beans, chick peas etc.) with cucumber, tomato, green onions, radish, and anything else that looks good. With a ranch dressing made from the Frontier bulk ranch mix and sour cream. I make a huge bowl because it keeps very well in the fridge, even with the dressing on.

Grilled polish dogs from an awesome little local meat market.
Roasted potatoes with oregano, garlic and lemon.
Spinach salad w/chevre.

We're doing chicken legs on the grill with some kind of rub my DH is going to make. We're also having Ranch potatoes, baked beans, and a green salad.

Last night dh and I had hamburgers with bacon, jalapenos and pepperjack. The boys had hot dogs and we all had potato salad that actually turned out really well.

Tonight, I don't know yet.

Last night we grilled -- some beef ribs that turned out terrible hot dogs, potato salad, coleslaw, and grilled asparagus.

tonight I am making asian-inspired salmon patties over braised bok choy. I'll make some jasmine rice, too.

All I know is what's for dessert so far - Apple Rhubarb Skillet Pie!

Last night was pasta with Italian sausage and tomatoes.

I want spaghetti and cheesy Italian bread tonight, but DH will probably veto that.

I think it was mostly the fact that they were beef ribs. I like pork too. To be honest, I don't think that DP knew what he was buying -- he got them at the farmer's market and they were in an unmarked bag So they were tough and dry and just...not very good. I also put a rub on them that was way too spicy for me. bummer, cause I was ready for some good ribs. That's what happens when I let the quasi-vegetarian buy the meat!

Oh man, that's awful about the ribs .. I've never attempted to do beef ribs and now I have no desire to!

We did some killer pork ribs on Saturday night. After several attempts, we finally have the recipe/technique for killer tender ribs.

Tonight we are doing blackened tilapia sandwiches and I found some KILLER artichokes which is unusual for Alabama so I'm taking advantage and having those on the side. Can't wait!

Tonight is sweet sausage in tomato sauce over Barilla Plus penne w/ a big blop of ricotta on top.

Girls are having chocolate covered vanilla ice cream bars for dessert. I'm having more pasta

Tonight we are just going to have leftover smoky refried bean soup served over pasta or brown rice (haven't decided which yet), corn muffins and a salad. And wine, of course.
