It seems like it's been a while since we had a good old fashioned "what's for dinner" thread. I'll go first!

Tonight we're having spaghetti and meatballs, since we've been watching Season 4 of _The Sopranos_ on DVD, and I've been craving Italian. :LOL DP may have ravioli instead. With it, a big green salad of the fresh lettuces from our CSA.


What's on your menu?

We were out shopping until around 7, so when we got home I made something quick. Whole wheat penne with Trader Joe's Sun-Dried Bruschetta on top (which is yummy on pasta.)

While the pasta was cooking I made a huge salad with my CSA lettuce, strawberries, walnuts, and a homemade balsamic dressing.

My husband was raving how good everything was even though I got it on the table so quick.

It's very simple and less fat and calories than using butter. Just cook your corn on the cob the way you like it, rub it with a wedge of lime and sprinkle with chili powder. It is very tasty

Thank you! Although, to be honest, what I would probably do is *first* use butter, then sprinkle with lime and chili powder.
: I actually have a recipe for tilapia with chili-lime butter, so I bet I could just make that butter up and use it on the corn. Yum! DP requested corn on the cob (and lobster, but that's another thread) for Father's Day dinner, so we'll try this then if not before. Thanks again.

BBQ asparagus, red/green peppers, zuchinni, eggplant splashed with balsamic and sprinkled with roasted garlic. Potatoes roasted in the oven with the garlic and some olive oil. Fresh green beans with a dot of butter. Bison stiploin steak. Chocolate cake with a chocolate glaze. This was for the family.

I had a huge plate of the roasted vegetable and garlic, 1/3 of a bison steak, some of the green beans. A small piece of cake, because dd made it all by herself. A glass of wine.
