What's for Dinner #248 - Falling Leaves Edition through October 11, 2013

As the Indian Summer weather here has begun to fade, increasing numbers of leaves have been falling. But it's still too warm for real fall dishes, so tonight will likely be something lighter. I asked for fish after last night's ribs, prime ribs, and chicken, so let's see what rjbh20 comes home from the market with!

What's cooking in your kitchen?

  1. Lifted from the #247 thread b/c god forbid someone misses my fascinating meal for tonight :-D

    Cheeborgerz from the grill with xtra sharp cheddar (of course) and oven-baked fries is WFD at casa lingua; maybe a tomato salad with the last of the heirlooms....

    Stuffed ourselves silly last night with pressed duck, roasted duck, roasted pork and gai lan straight from Chinatown. I love our friends!

      I just hope you get another "Duck......duck......PIG!!!" response.

        1. re: fldhkybnva

          Yes, that was priceless :-)

          Maybe a "duck, duck....... BEEF!" is more appropriate for tonight's dinner!

          1. re: fldhkybnva

            And I hadn't even had any wine when I posted that on the other thread, fieldhawk. :D

              Hey -- you don't need alcohol to have a good time! It just makes it a tiny bit gooder.

          2. Tonight is going to be a London Broil medium rare, Marsala Mushroom Cream sauce, mashed potatoes and glazed baby carrots. Dinner rolls on the side with honey butter. I'm thinking ahead to steak fajitas later in the week. :-D And yes, there will be wine. Probably a nice Shiraz.

              Well, the London Broil never happened. DH was really sick all day yesterday and the only thing he had was water, 7Up and a cup of chicken broth (we thought he might be coming down with the flu). But by this morning it was a trip to the ER. He is having gall bladder surgery tomorrow. Buggers. So we'll see how he is doing when he gets home. Poor baby.

                1. re: boyzoma

                  Oh god. Coming from someone that got stomach flu and suffers permanent paralysis from gastroparesis, you can never be to cautious with tummy troubles. My heart goes out to you and DH. I hope he gets better soon. All the best

                  1. re: boyzoma

                    Ouch! Hope that goes well, boyzoma, and he doesn't have to have too restricted a diet afterward. Courage, and onward and upward!

                    1. re: gingershelley

                      once the gall baldder is gone you can eat anything!

                    2. re: boyzoma

                      egads! poor baby is right. hope he's out and about and eating London Broil soon!

                      1. re: boyzoma

                        Oh no! I hope his recovery is quick!

                        1. re: LindaWhit

                          Thanks all. I will give him your best. Scheduled for 1 tomorrow. I'm sure everything will be fine.

                        2. re: boyzoma

                          Ugh. Best wishes for a speedy recovery!!

                          1. re: boyzoma

                            Sorry he's poorly. Hope for a quick recovery!

                            1. re: boyzoma

                              Well, the DH is home and resting comfortably. Dr. said in over 30 years of doing this surgery, this was the worst case he had ever seen. DH was VERY lucky.

                              So after all that. I made him his very favorite split pea soup for dinner last night. Going to go slow and easy for a few days to make sure he keeps food down well. Thanks all for your well wishes.

                              1. re: boyzoma

                                VERY glad to hear he's home and surgery went well, boyzoma, despite the severity of the case.

                                  1. re: boyzoma

                                    Good to hear himself is back home.

                                        1. re: boyzoma

                                          Oy! Glad he's safe & home. You'll take great care of him for sure!

                                          1. re: boyzoma

                                            yikes - glad to hear it went well!

                                        2. not sure if i'm feeling the white chili after all. i have thighs and i'm thinking something bacony/winey. the veal shank stew i made for my dad turned out so delicious - that balsamic gave it such a nice sweet/tartness - that i was thinking of doing something similar to the thighs tonight. something coq au vin-ish. we'll see....

                                          1. Here is the shepards pie I out together with leftover lamb and farm share veggies. The house smells so good!

                                                    thanks all. I have to say it tasted as good as it looked. My husband had thirds. The boy declared "just ok", LOL

                                                      What time is dinner? Oh, already past, me thinks. Sigh....

                                                      Looks amazing!

                                                      1. We're having homemade sausage patties, pumpkin waffles made from a boxed Trader Joe's mix, and, of course, butter and syrup. Was going to have cut up Asian pears, but they all got eaten!
