What's for dinner?

I'm jealous of all the folks on the "What are you drinking?" thread, because I hardly ever drink booze, and how boring is saying "lemon water" or "coffee w milk/sugar"?

But​ I figure we've got people from all over the world here... different cultures and cuisines.. why not say what we're eating/what's for dinner? Doesn't matter if you made it yourself/ordered in/are eating out. I think it might be pretty interesting...

So, I'll have a go...

Lamb chops in an orange juice/soy sauce marinade; mushroom risotto made with jasmine rice; and steamed veggies...

Great idea for a thread!

In fact, I was just thinking about dinner. The kids are at the Grandparents and the wife and I are going to see Gravity tonight, but we have had zero discussions about dinner. We did go out to a fancy dinner and a play last night with friends, so my guess, we will want to eat in tonight.

Maybe I will offer to cook and prepare chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes, corn on the cob, biscuits and a tossed salad. I don't prepare many meals but I know how to make each of those items (although my wife makes better biscuits than me).

You had me at "offer to cook"...:RpS_smile:

After that, you could have said chicken fried cardboard and grass clippings, and I wouldn't care... sounds good to me!

(Don't get me wrong... I love cooking... but it's nice when someone else takes a turn...)

A biscuit baking man? Swoon..

I'm too tired too cook so it will probably be salami sandwiches for dinner.

Although I did just buy the ingredients for onigiri (rice balls) so i might make those so I can snack tommorrow at rehearsal.

Edit:
Kami-mushroom risotto sounds heavenly.

My son will marry you! He loves nothing more than a salami, cheese and Prego sandwich...

BBQ pork chops, Mac n' cheese, steamed broccoli, corn muffins
Yummy! I do something different with my mac n' cheese.. boil and drain pasta, toss with shredded cheese, put in a baking pan. Mix together spices, eggs, and milk; and pour that over the pasta. Bake until the runny stuff sets. Works great with the long macaroni (as opposed to elbows), and sometimes I add in veggies instead of having them separate...

Burgers on the grill, pasta salad, cole slaw, and ice cream for dessert. I'm in a world where summer still exists in my head.

Soup. I spent the week sick, then felt better, then went out last night and to a wine fest today. The booze knocked me down and back to basic foods I go....

Pie...pumpkin and cherry. Been back from the World a week and my eating is still whack! Bad news is that I'm not walking 8-9 miles a day in the parks. Must.Eat.Veggies.Soon.

does anybody know how to change this?
Great topic! Although I won't have much to add, since we have such weird eating habits. For instance, tonight it's rice with roasted veggies drizzled with our favorite 25-year-old balsamic.

Steamed clams with Tabasco and drawn butter, steamed shrimp with Old Bay seasoning along with cocktail sauce (heavy horseradish). Salad and a bottle of chardonnay. :RpS_thumbup:

Super healthy at our house-pigs in a blanket, Mac and cheese, green beans and salad. We needed a quick dinner since we spent all afternoon swimming at the YMCA. I think the crescent rolls negated the exercise.

The good people at Stouffer's made our dinner tonight. I'm not feeling all that great so I went with option B. Option A was to not feed my family at all. :RpS_wink:

It is going to be leftover night (like in the Incredibles), so baked spaghetti, pot roast, mashed potatoes, enchilada casserole, roast chicken, sandwiches, green beans, corn, hashbrown casserole and corn bread.

I have also thrown brats and a picnic shoulder on the smoker, but those are for eating later in the week.
