Oh, weekends are so good for those snacky meals.  Our Friday nights are very snacky.  We stay in and almost always make either pizza or quesadillas.

Last night we had Taco Bell...not my favorite but they have these new low fat chicken fresco soft tacos which are pretty good.  Tonight we're having some friends over and making hot dogs/hamburgers/homemade french fries and probably brownies for dessert.

Oh! Homemade french fries. Maybe I'll do that too.

I've been trying to come up with some stuff to do that doesn't require my oven - the oven repair man came on Friday, and to make a long story short, we're just going to have to get a new one. After we choose one, it will probably take 10 days to 2 weeks for delivery. My stove top works fine, though. And we have a grill and a fondue pot and a deep fryer....  ;D

I use lots of rosemary and garlic on mine with some sea salt and a touch of olive oil because I usually bake them instead of frying....I think BF could eat them 5 times a week...lol.

I think I would prefer to bake them as well, but with the oven out of commission, I'll have to fry them. You've really got the idea in my head now, so it might be time to go cut up some potatoes.  ;D

I did wind up peeling and cutting potatoes, but instead of french fries, I made a bathtub of potato salad (5 lb of potatoes, a dozen eggs...)

We'll have potato salad for a while!

For supper tonight, we had grilled pork steaks with a sesame/soy/ginger/garlic marinade (it was delicious!), sweet corn and carrots, and potato salad. For dessert, we had chocolate pudding and egg creams. I used the back-of-the-spoon method to pour the seltzer into the glasses for the egg creams; it worked beautifully. We had nice thick foamy top layers.

I am quite full!

Tonight, we're having rabbit, potatoes au gratin and a vegetable to be determined on my next ride into town.

For tonight: We have beef steaks to put on the grill, plus the potato salad I made yesterday. I think I'll make up some vegetable packets for the grill too (zucchini, yellow squash, sweet onion, maybe some pepper strips, salt & pepper, olive oil). I have to do a dessert that can be made on the stove top, so I might haul out my Betty Crocker recipe for blanc mange and serve that with some berries on the side.

It's just me and DH today, so nothing special.  I've been craving corn pudding so we're having that plus a Greek salad, homemade pumpernickel raisin bread and pina colada smoothies.  Oh and some roasted tiny red potatoes with rosemary.  He may grill a hot dog or something for himself.

I have the cold of death and doom at the moment (yes I am being a baby) so DH is making me a burger with cheese and bacon and a giant pretzel with salt for dinner :)

I had grilled chicken with black bean and mango salsa, tabouleh, hummus, veg and german rye bread. For dessert I had Kashi Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookies and a glass of wine...now my stomach hurts but it was all so good!

We didn't do something special for dinner on Memorial Day.  DH was researching at home and took a break to have dinner on the back porch with me ...  Pinot grigio, Morningstar black bean burgers with the fixings, Gazpacho and Lemon bars that I baked for dessert. 

The gazpacho is an old favorite of mine -- cold, tri-colored pasta salad sauce with a sauce made of olive oil, lime juice, tomato juice and garlic sauce.

I think I am going to marinate some Greek chicken for tonight (chicken breasts in oil, lemon and oregano, cooked/served with onion and lemon).  I got the idea from someone on here, when I first got into eating and making chicken again.  ETA: With garlic-y green beans (again) & cubed baked potato with rosemary.

No idea what I'm doing tonight. Mr. F is going to go help his friend hang drywall again, and the kids and I are going to Jane's Scout troop's end-of-year Court Of Awards, which starts at 6:30.

I was going to bake something to bring along to Scouts, but with my oven out of commission, I'll have to come up with something else. I don't want to do cheese/crackers/veggie tray, because other moms have already got that department covered. Any ideas, outside of buying cookies at the bakery?

Goldfish in a Pond Rice Cakes! I loved those things... :P



Tonight we;re having Greek Chicken Pasta. I have about 3 dishes that I actually make well and have memorized and this is one of them. DF can't get enough of it. :)
