Not only the tri tip, but ANYTHING you have ever posted on these boards. They always sound/look fantastic.

What's for Dinner #323 - The Labor Day Edition!

Yes - I used one of my old small Pyrex bowls sprayed with Pam. Placed it on a cookie sheet (for easy removal) and it turned out great. You might want to go 13 minutes - it depends on your oven. If I had it to do over, I would probably use a little seasoning on the flour tortillas, though.

Why oh why did you not use my host(ess) gift at your dinner party?

Sorry I offended you, Cherylptw. No offense was meant. Stupid me - I "assumed" you had seen some of the OP's other posts - which is obviously not the case. Again - sorry :-)

Inquiring minds want to know - have you EVER done something that doesn't turn out well? Everything you do looks so fabulous and tasty. Steve h does the same thing to me!

Ground Turkey lettuce wraps, maybe? Depends on what else you have in the pantry/fridge. Turkey burgers. Turkey meat balls? You could also do a "ground turkey taco salad" similar to the one I posted from Thursday's dinner. Just a few thoughts for you.

What's for Dinner #323 - The Labor Day Edition!

Last night (after the good dose of rain in the afternoon) we did baked potatoes on the grill along with grilled asparagus and fresh salmon (which was on sale at Whole Foods). Oh my was that dinner good. There was a nice Pinot Gris to pair up with the food.

Tonight will be Cajun chicken fettuccine. Haven't had it in quite a while so am definitely looking forward to it. I'll have to think about a nice wine paring to go with it.

That looks delicious! Loved your blog. It really makes me think. I hope you enjoy your adventure. There will be some rough times, but in the end, you'll be happy you fulfilled this dream. Have a wonderful journey and I will be following your blog as well. Stay safe.

I know I've seen a dogie treat recipe on this board somewhere. You can put a pill in the "pocket" and it seems to work very well. I will look for it, but you can also search for "doggie pocket treats" or something similar. Wishing you well and your baby.

ETA: I found one, but I'll keep looking - http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/8073...

Love that reply. DH and I use a lot of things (mostly first initials) that we throw together to see who can figure out the saying best. Sometimes I lose :-(

With all due respect, Cherylpdtw, we are talking Roz here. I give SamuelAt much respect for tolerating Roz at all and then sharing the stories with us. I always get a chuckle at what her next move is. SamuleAt supplies such comic relief and I always love the various stories.

Last night was Taco Salad. I used 12" flour tortillas and sprayed the inside of a Pyrex bowl with Pam. Shaped the tortillas and baked at 350 for 12 minutes. Filled with lettuce, diced tomato, kidney beans, ground beef, cheese and topped with sour cream and salsa. Nice and lite and again on the deck! Woo Hoo. DH had the beer and I had the wine! Don't know about tonight. Maybe will do take-out!

I like stuffed peppers on the grill. Works great! Don't have to heat up the oven.

Thanks to you and all who have been so supportive. It's nice to know I have friends that care (and/or have been in the same place). My cheers to you all!

Oh, NW - she looks so sweet. My heart goes out to both of you. Lots of cuddles and hand feed treats may just do the trick. Such a sweetheart. ~hugs~ to you both.

Oh, I'm so sorry. I would want my baby to be in tip-top shape before they sent her home. Best to you and your little one. Many prayers (since I lost my beloved pawed baby in January - Still have trouble with that).

Looks good. Love PT. I've got this on my list to do in the next week. And the leftovers!!! A good cuban sandwich sounds good right about now as well.

Awwww - Cherylptw - I certainly hope you feel better soon. I'll be thinking of you and hoping you feel better soon. Maybe a little chicken broth might help? Glad DH can take care of the leftovers. Just rest and get better. ~hugs~

Pulled Pork: Slow cook and then grill or vice versa?

I do the same thing. I do put sliced onions in the bottom of the crock pot, then put in the pork and add a can of root beer. Love it on sliders with home made cole slaw.

Oh, Berheenia, I'm so sorry. But as you said, at least you can have some wine for a few days. The best thing is to look forward to when the procedure is done. It gives you an "end date" at least. I wish you the best and hope everything works out the best for you. Hang in there and I know we all will be hanging in there for you. ~hugs~

Made the kosher dills; now what?

I've been making dill pickle soup for years. The original recipe came from a local restaurant here in the Portland suburbs called the Trianon. So delicious. Here is the original recipe: http://69.46.26.253/msgbrd/board_0/19...

I've seen it change over time all over the web. But pick one you like and go for it.

Well, thank goodness we don't have any kiddos to buy clothes/school supplies/etc. for these days. Although I do miss those days. But, there is something said to being Oma & Opa!

Anyway, last night was such a beautiful evening. We ate on the deck. On the menu was a recipe I found in one of my Penzey's catalogs. Wasabi Steak and Noodles. I've made it before, but it was even better this time. DH grilled a nice bone-in strip steak. I used no-yolk noodles. All the spicing was good, however I used a little more wasabi than the recipe called for, for our tastes. And a small side salad. Oh, of course there was wine. We had a great dinner!

If you don't buy Penzey's, at least sign up for the catalog. They have some recipes that are really good. The recipe we had can be found here: http://www.penzeys.com/cgi-bin/penzey...

On another up-note - had my checkup and both eyes from my cataract surgery are now 20/20! I only need readers (which I plan to find the smallest pair I can find). I am now doing my jig dance (well, if only in my mind).

It's just something DH and I are not interested in. Oh well. That's how it rolls sometimes. :) It's ok, as there are some things we just don't care for. If Liver was the DOTM, you wouldn't see me near it. :-) :-0

OMG Weezie - I can only imagine. I've only passed out once when I was 18 and had a bad case of strep. They gave me a shot and down I went. I certainly hope you are going to be O.K. We'll be worried about you! Enjoy that nice piece of steak. Should be very satisfying.

Since I have seen it numerous times, I've never tried Zuni Chicken. Guess I've got to change that. I'll have to look and see what Zuni recipes have been posted. Do you have an immediate link to your favorite recipe?

Another analogy That I have heard:

"It's really sloshed out there (meaning soaking wet)

as apposed to

"He (or she) is really sloshed" (meaning drunk)

I have found in my travels that one thing we mean in English just does NOT mean the same in another language. I've been looked at VERY funny at times. :-)

That looks really, really great. I'm not a ricotta fan (something about the "mouth feel", but I'd be willing to give yours a shot! Love everything else.

I've been using it for quite some time too. This is very similar to my confetti salad, just a little different in the dressing. I use it more often than an original macaroni. It's just so neat and bite sized. I have to keep in on my shelf at all times! I also use it in my minestrone soup.
