AUGUST already! What are you having for dinner?

post #1 of 188
Thread Starter 
Hi there~

as I am finally having quieter evenings my time in MDC will increase during the next weeks and I decided to open the Dinner-Thread this month. And because I looove FOOD

I am not yet sure what we will be having for dinner tonight as there's a little fair in our town called 'Schlossgartenfest' (Palace Garden Fair). Mind you, the so-called palace is an ancient house that was build during Art Nouveau but 'Palace' sounds much better, doesn't it?!

But back to dinner - either we'll have a quick dinner at home (sandwiches and various salads) or fast food at the fair

You probably want to post a link to this thread in the old thread so that people see it.

Your evening sounds fun.

I think we are having breakfast for dinner, DH's choice. He decided on Friday's that he wants to cook since he gets off early, and he wants to make a different breakfast each week. We all enjoy breakfast foods but rarely feel like making them in the morning, so we are going to have them at night.

Tonight we're having this sweet & spicy kielbasa in the crockpot. But I had to modify it a bit since we're out of brown sugar. And the mustard that was supposed to go in too. So I guess I'm just making up a recipe with kielbasa in it!

We'll have rice with it and a salad too.

Lunch today will be leftover grilled chiken in a hot curry sauce that I made last night. Tonight is pesto pizza. The basil in the garden is beautiful and calling to me.

I need to do something with mint soon, as the mint plant is also calling.

I'm making red beans (I think there cranberry beans?), coconut rice and a salad for dinner tonight. One last good vegetatian meal before a long weekend of junk at the in-laws....

We're going to a picnic/potluck/cookout for DP's work, so who knows what we'll be eating...! Probably the standard hot dogs and hamburgers and cold salads and chips, but that's OK...'tis the season.. .I was asked to bring a dessert so I made two pans of brownies.

Thanks for that reminder! I just put a link in the old thread

My dinner was totally different as I had previously planned it because we were so HUNGRY! So we had pork chops, spaetzle, homegrown yellow zucchini in cream sauce and two antipasti salads from yesterdays beergarden event. One was a carrot+feta+mint+cumin+lemon/garlic/olive oil dressing-salad (a Bill Granger recipe) and the other were roasted egg plant slices w/garlicky vinaigrette

Unfortunately our festival was drowned in an awful lot of rain so we went back home rather quickly

Tonight pork chops, hush puppies and homemade cole slaw. DH is making his famous Pozole for tomorrow night.

Last night was flank steak with baby red potatoes and broccoli out of our friends garden, boy was that good!

That sounds wonderful. I love Greek food. I have a pile of cucumbers that would make a nice tzatziki.

I made a hash-like thing with chorizo, onions, green peppers and potatos. It's one of my favorite things to make when we get lots of green peppers from the CSA. Yum.

Sounds awesome, and I have some chorizo in my freezer -- do you have an actual recipe for this, or is it a fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants thing?

Hmm, we are having my parents over for my stepdad's birthday dinner...brats & hot dogs on the grill, Poineer Woman's fresh green beans (sooo yummy they are like candy, I swear), yellow cake with 2 kinds of homemade chocolate frosting. Oh and maybe corn on the cob.
