Default What's cookin' TGIF, Friday, July 22?

We're having company for dinner tonight, and I'm roasting some salmon this morning to use in a salade nicoise. Also making some cold cucumber/dill soup and a lemon icebox pie. EVERYTHING cold and refreshing tonight. What's up with you?

All I've got working so far are ABT's and tomato, zucchini, Feta, pasta salad. It's another hot and humid day so there may not be anything else.

Now that you mention it, salad nicoise sounds good to me. I'm still not sure yet.

Throwing some SBR sauce on last night's pork roast and calling it pulled pork sammies. Gotta pick up some Grandma's Cole Slaw to go with it, and more cuke/tomato & onion salad.

DW took her friend Lorrie for lunch for her Birthday. She came back with practically a whole meatloaf and gravy on white / with mashed garlic taters.
I guess that's Her supper for tonight. ( Her Favorite meal)

I guess I will have to ponder here a bit. I thinking maybe some breaded shrimp..??..or steamed dumplings and fried rice from the takeout place??

Had a liverwurst sammie and a beer for lunch, and I'm still burping that.

vera, i kid u not, i tried to get jake to buy me a (much, much sturdier) pool for the living room, though he refused due to its impractibility
we've not experienced weather here like this since, from my understanding,1914! i was shocked watching that my section was being hit like this as opposed to southern states, & thew states over 2 the west

I just have to 'fess up about my dinner tonight. Do you feel a long-winded story coming on?

When you move to Florida, you have to do several things: buy a generator; buy storm shutters; stock up a 'hurricane shelf". The storm shelf includes canned foods that can be eaten as is in an emergency. It's not necessary to cook them, nor add water (which may not be safe), nor do any prep which includes fresh ingredients or needs electricity. Things like canned tuna and canned baked beans fill the bill very well.

Every June, at the start of the storm season, you stock your shelf with a week's worth of food, plenty of bottled water, candles, etc. etc. Every spring, the postal workers do a canned food drive for the County food bank. In our house, we clean out the storm shelf of all the cans and give them to the postal workers. Then in June, we re-stock the shelf. We've been doing it for years - never eat the beans or the canned tuna, but we always donate it in the spring and buy more in June. Works for us.

Well, by 8:00 tonight I still hadn't started dinner. I just couldn't get motivated. So........................

You guessed it. We raided the storm shelf. Bush's barbeque beans. There were some Nathan's hot dogs in the freezer. (SousChef bought them because I won't let her have them). We cut up the hotdogs and cooked them in the beans. I hadn't had beans & franks since my mother died, and that was 1967! I can't believe we ate it, and I can't believe I'm telling you!

The biggest joke was during the process. I started cutting up the hotdogs, and I asked SousChef to open the can of beans. She opened the utensil drawer and just stood there looking. Eventually, I reached over and pointed to the can opener. She looked up and said, "It's been so long since we used it that I forgot what it looked like!)

Oh well, tomorrow we'll have the firecracker shrimp.

We've had 9 days straight of 90 degree weather or better with a heat index of 105-110. We did get a 30 minute thunderstorm tonight. lol

Everyone sounds like they're having wonderful dinners tonight. Nancy, your dinner looks great!

We had smoked ABT's, pasta salad w/tomatoes, zucchini and Feta cheese, and BLT's. It was just enough.

I THOUGHT I had a lot of corned beef so I froze half but the other half got eaten so quickly that I thawed the other half and made Rueben sandwiches today.

Mama, your dinner sounds wonderful - hope you got some pictures. My company tonight was very understanding while I took pictures!
Nancy, your shrimp dinner has my mouth watering, and we just ate!
Barb, your dinner looks delicious - I love those ABTs.
Vera - is that your pool? I used to kick my kids out of their little wading pool when they were little and it was hot. The neighbor and I would sit in the kiddie pool and drink a nice cold beer - probably scarred my poor children for life!
SS - I love your story, thanks for sharing it with us. Sounds darned good, actually.
Luvs - I hope you ate more than freeze-pops for dinner!

We started our meal with a cold cucumber/dill/yogurt soup with pepperoncinis, then had salmon salade nicoise and lemon icebox pie...this picture would not upload, so I'll try again tomorrow. We all LOVED this pie - I'll post the recipe for you later tonight or tomorrow. Simple to make and so good. Our company has left, and I may go eat some more.

I am a slacker, I had a margarita, chips, salsa and some really nice guacamole. Simple, but was very un-inspired, tired, hot and cranky.

That pool pictured above was purchased for a party Lou and I had here for Memorial Day. I invited my staff and their families for an outdoor picnic/bbq. Their children played in the pool all afternoon. End of the day, I told one of the staff members they could have the pool. Lou deflated it and took it to the restaurant. Barbara took it home and reinflated it. It practically killed her. So now it sits, completely inflated, in her living room. When she has time, she carries it downstairs and out to the yard, fills it; and places her grandson in the pool. When finished, it goes back into the living room. Apparently, she doesn't trust her neighbours not to steal it.

I did try it out, however. Slide part didn't work for me...
