What's for dinner? Part 89 [OLD]

Welcome to the new thread. Sit down, take the weight off your feet. And, as spring springs towards summer, share with us what's on your table tonight.

  1. Tonight.....classic roast pork (free range Mansergh Hall), roast spuds, carrots, gravy, apple sauce.

    1. Tonight I think we'll have grilled fish tacos with avocado and some sort of slaw. Beautiful day here in Philly, perfect for grilling!

      1. The chicken pot pie I made last night was incredibly good.
        Tonight, I'm being taken out. No complaints here :)

        1. A repeat of my post from Part 88 as I didn't see that Harters had started a new thread:

          Went out last night to a gathering of a large group of folks from another message board I post on (non-cooking related although I've managed to find a few who are interested in good food! LOL) and knew I would need to get some food into me to absorb the liquid libations. So I sat with a few who were eating and chose an appetizer of 3 sliders. They were surprisingly good with tomato, lettuce, all on mini brioche buns of sorts, and what I believe was Russian dressing to slather on the burgers. Did the trick of absorbtion. ;-)

          But when are bars going to realize you DO NOT NEED TO TURN UP THE MUSIC SO LOUD THAT NO ONE CAN HEAR ANYONE ELSE SPEAKING? Some tea and honey will be needed throughout today to sooth the hoarse voice I have this morning.

          But....we have sunshine today - windows will be open, birds will be singing, and I'm sure people will be out mowing their lawns all around New England, since it's the first time they've been able to do so in almost 10 days! LOL

            It's warmish in North Cheshire. I've spent a few hours in the garden. Cut the grass. Planted up the rest of the veg we're going to grow in containers, as well as some prettier stuff. So, apart from the radish, alpine strawberries and salad leaves that I planted the other day, there's now three tomatoes, three runner beans and a single courgette. And all the herbs look good (except the bay which, like last year, looks very sorry for itself after the winter).

              So glad you are finally getting some sun in your neck of the woods, Linda! : ))

              1. re: Phurstluv

                I've been out shopping all day, and it's amazing the "lift" people seem to have - few scowls, many smiles. :-)

                Tonight's dinner will be appropriate sunshiney-summerish - wild fresh-caught Alaskan sockeye salmon, basmati rice and roasted asparagus. Maple and ginger are one of the ways I like to go with salmon (still no grill, so this will be oven-baked). Plus, I have all of the ingredients for this recipe without digging in boxes. :-)

                  Nice!! Both the weather & your dinner. LW!

                I hear you, Linda. Bars always have the music too loud for conversation. We had dinner at the local sports bar Thursday night, which had about 12 televisions playing different sporting events, which nobody could hear, because the music was too loud. Food wasn't great either.

                  Very jealous, snow in No. Nevada again.

                2. Bourbon.....
                  Fried Catfish, hush puppies, slaw, potatoes.....
                  Maybe some fried dill pickles and onion rigs for an appetizer.......
                  Chocolate Cake......
