I thought it might be fun to start a thread on what we are having, making or had for dinner.  Sometimes it is the best tuna steak you ever had, sometimes it's a can of soup.  But we all do it every night in some form or another.  Maybe we can give each other ideas on what to make, or bitch about what we had, or the fact that we did enjoy that grilled cheese with tomato soup. 

Every night my husband comes home and says "whats for dinner?"  no matter what I say he always says "sounds good!"  even if I say it's a 'fend for yourself night'. :)

Eric - thanks for the long post. Great to hear from you. Hope your deployment isn't too long or arduous.

I guessed right about the meal. Outback has a $9.99 - 6 oz sirloin steak special with one side on Wednesdays, so that's what he picked. I've never been a big fan of Outback, but I ordered the $14.99 meal which included soup (french onion) salad, steak, side (baked potato) & cheesecake for dessert. I ate the soup & salad and brought everything else home. So for $5.00 extra I get at least 3 meals. If the sirloin is tough, I'll slice it thin & do a stir fry, or a brandy cream sauce.

I've never been nuts about sirloin or round (too tough), and can even take or leave filet mignon (too boring, not beefy enough). I'm definitely a ribeye gal—especially bone-in “cowboy cut." If we go out, the two of us can usually share it and still have leftovers. Wouldn't turn down a Porterhouse or T-bone, either.

I pan-seared the salmon and did the aforementioned veggie stir-fry. Took it and a small glass of rosé out to the deck, where I was able to enjoy it under the stars for all of about 10 minutes, before the wind started whipping up. We're expecting severe storms to hit about 1 am—there's been a twister reported in Boone County, IL and the warning box now encompasses the Lake Geneva, WI area, headed towards Racine. We won't be getting tornadoes, though—just thunderstorms, high straight-line winds, heavy rain and perhaps large hail.

I have been cooking.... Indian masalas and other side dishes. Lots of vegetables. Big brunches for family. And then a few nights out to Sarma, a new Korean fusion spot called Meju, and then last night when the kitchen was in the 90º;s, our "Big Fish Night." Tonight was are grilling a massive salmon steak, cut especially for us. This will be enough for 4 adult servings and 1 for Olivia. She had her 1-year doctor checkup yesterday. She is 20LB and almost 30". Very healthy. Physically precocious but a bit behind on "communication." What does that mean in a 1- year old? I will learn more tomorrow. So funny since she is "talking" and telling stories all day long. We are the problem, not her! We don't understand her!

Cycle 3 began on Tuesday. No premeds! I felt almost normal afterwards, except for the Xgeva side effects.

Had intended to make fish tacos tonight but realized too late that I have no tortillas. Not sure what plan b is but it may involve fish.

Yum to Popeyes (don't forget the biscuit) -- KFC not so much. To be fair, I haven't eaten it in years so I may be missing something. Not an Outback fan either. But boy do I love a ribeye (or porterhouse or t bone.)

Bon voyage Carole. Safe travels to the North country. Are you managing again this year?

Dad went to a nursing home Monday. After he finishes rehab he will remain there in long term care. The rehab is the result of a hospitalization for C Diff, leaving him very weak. The nursing home I found is 15 miles from where he lived but they allow him to have his own tv, lift chair, electric wheelchair and even a mini fridge if he wants one. This has made him very happy. So far, he likes the staff and the food and told me that he's glad that we chose this facility. I have no illusions that he will maintain this attitude but at least it's made the move less traumatic. The real test will be when he has to give up his single room and take a roommate. But the rooms are quite large, so maybe it will be ok.

April I'm so sorry you've been sick. I hate illness that lingers. My bout with noro virus left my stomach in such a mess that I'm just now getting back to normal (dad stress hasn't helped of course.) I'm glad you're feeling better.

The babies born into our group have grown so, it's amazing! Little Charlie will be walking around before we know it.

Nance, I'm surprised that your dad is allowed an electric wheelchair. At Belle Maison we have traffic snarls with the manual wheelchairs.

This week was spring fling and there were all sorts of activities all week. Tuesday night there were three bands and party food with family invited. My sister drew that detail. Tonight was Bingo sponsored by a club with generous cash prizes. Also cookies and punch. I accompanied my mother and we sat at a table with her friends. My mother is back to her status prior to the hospitalization in March.

I hope the nursing home works out for your dad.

I had a late lunch after day two of a member/member golf tournament. So I had no dinner tonight

Yea. I am still not eating much. Heck, I wasn't able to finish even this! I have to get my potassium numbers up. So potatoes are on the menu! I don't want to delay chemo for a lack of potassium after all.

The wind turned in off the lake tonight, dropping the temps by twenty degrees. But it was still clear and I hadn’t had dinner before my training session, so when I came up the deck from the garage, I fired up the gas grill before going inside. Gordy & I had grass-fed hanger steaks (just the right size), balsamic-grilled asparagus, sauteed ramps with mushrooms and we shared an ear of corn (I had 3” off the pointy top end and he had the rest). Dessert was strawberries, raspberries & blackberries with a little real balsamico.

My very first Broadway Play was My Fair Lady. I was 7 and Julie Andrews and Rex Harrison were doing one of their last performances before leaving.

Remains my most favorite score of any. "On the street where you live" will bring instant joy to my heart every time I hear it.

Susan, that's an appetizing plate of food. The potatoes really caught my eye. I'm still hoping for that Greek potatoes recipe when you have the time and energy.

Steak for dinner here as well. I am thawing two ribeyes so there will be leftovers for sandwiches the next couple of days There are both sweet potatoes and small white potatoes that need to be cooked.

The Lyric Opera’s production stars a guy who was in Downton Abbey (which, sad to say, I never watched) and a soprano named Lisa O’Hare who played Eliza both in the last B’way revival and in London. Reviews are mixed—uniformly glowing for her, okay for him, and positive for the guys who play Freddy & Alfred. But the production itself has been slammed for having monochromatic sets that are too big for the cast (and the house itself is too big for a show like this—somehow, Carousel and The King & I were better “fits.” I saw the movie when I was a teenager—why they didn’t use Julie Andrews I’ll never know (at least for the dubbing, instead of Marni Nixon, who dubbed everybody in Hollywood but didn’t really “act” when she sang); when I was much younger, I saw staged excerpts re-enacted on the Ed Sullivan show with the original cast. (Didn’t see my first B’way show on B’way itself until I was in my teens and saw the fourth or fifth replacement cast of Oliver with my day camp—before that, it was just summer stock with my parents at Westbury Music Fair. Though we lived in Brooklyn, we rarely went into Manhattan).

My parents took us into San Francisco for a musical every year, in addition to some plays. I think The King & I was the first musical I saw, but it might have been South Pacific We were fortunate to also see many productions that came to Stanford when I was growing up. The last show I saw actually 'on Broadway' was in the early 1960s (thank you BC for causing the cancellation of a NYC trip in 2013 that included tickets for 3 shows). I do remember taking my son to Little Shop of Horrors original off Broadway run in the late 80s. I can tell you my staid parents did NOT take me to see Hair or Jesus Christ Superstar, but I made it to those also.

Sorry for the diversion. Fun memories. Lunch was fried rice and 3 small "cuties" tangerines. I'm headed up to the subdivision pool to start registration for this season. It was 93 this afternoon so expect I will be too hot to eat anything by the time I get home. Or maybe a bowl of popcorn for the salt.

Bifurcated dinner last night—we managed to score walk-in seats at the bar of the 3rd floor Florian Opera Bistro pre-show (Bob already had an octopus salad near where he'd parked, close to Russian Tea Time and cabbed it over to have a martini). I had “spring tart" (kale-spinach-gruyere quiche) with a small salad and a glass of rosé cava. Show ran long, so we broke etiquette and left at the start of curtain calls to get into the cab line early and make it to Russian Tea Time only 10 min. late. (They had plenty of room, and we were neither the last to arrive nor the last to remain). With champagne, I had caviar & blini with the trimmings—Bob said this was my substitute Mothers' Day dinner. Should have gotten a clue from the low-ish price of an ounce that this was not their old caviar service, which featured choice of sevruga, osetra or beluga and had cost at least twice as much for even the sevruga. It was paddlefish, a relative of sturgeon. Delicious, but without the “pop" that you get from sevruga eggs or the complex taste of osetra. It came with loads of mini-blini and all the trimmings—since Bob polished off his borscht pretty quickly, we shared the caviar. Main course was a cold seafood platter: salmon roe (actually, my favorite “caviar"), crepes, lox, smoked salmon “pastrami," whitefish, herring, sturgeon, cucumbers, capers, red onions, carrot & potato salads, boiled red potatoes and chopped eggs. We ended taking most of it home—Gordy ate some of it late last night, and for brunch I had a couple slices of the salmon pastrami with a couple of slow-scrambled eggs that I finished off with a sprinkle of Sicilian caper sea salt (I bought it and orange flavor in Taormina on our cruise in Dec. 2015).

Not sure about tonight—will depend on when Bob gets home and how much of the smoked fish Gordy polishes off for his lunch. We do have some wine to pick up at Cellars tonight so might go for their lobster tail/chickpea salad.

The man wants some meat. [I do believe that he is a bit horrified by my current meat avoidance mode.] So, he will grill up some burgers. I have made some vinegar cole slaw, his favorite, and also made a "light" pasta salad since all that appeals right now is "creamy" stuff. Before dinner, I may make less light by adding more creamy stuff.

This hummingbirds are amazing Nancy. My parents used to have feeders, but then the wildlife [especially bears] found them, and that was the end of that. Bears do love sugar.

Banana bread. Again, Mr. SMT loves this stuff. And now that I have this AirBNB where I offer bananas, there are always some that are too ripe. He divides the loaf into solid chunks and freezes them for Olivia and hospital mornings. I don't think he would enjoy the addition of pineapple, which must be similar to the recipes that use applesauce to reduce the amount of butter.

Time to make more bread, and now that the temperature has dropped 25º I can imagine firing up the oven once again.

Actually I'd rather have date bread than banana bread. My mother made it with a recipe from a long time neighbor - who would be 137 if she were still living. But I agree - I rarely make either since I too can't be trusted not to grab a slice each time I pass through the kitchen.

When it comes to banana bread, I only used my paternal grandmother's recipe. Her banan bread was the best!!!!!

Dinner at 1pm. Poached salmon with dill. I opened a white wine to poach, and it happened to be a lovely Gewurztraminer from Mendacino County - so of course I had a large glass w/my meal. I cooked up some of the "Ancient Grains" package I got at Costco. A blend of Rice, Bulgar, Barley, Wheat Berries, Red Rice, Oats & Quinoa. Really good dry mix with no sodium if you don't add it. I simmered in chicken bouillon & added garlic, chopped onion & butter as recommended on the package. Excellent. I meant to serve a veg, but with the timing of the salmon & the grains I forgot. Guess I'll have my veg tomorrow.

Went to Costco this morning to stock up on Chobani yogurt for this week's AirBNB guests. Grabbed one of those 2-chicken packs, and I may regret this. One half of the single bird has a breast size of about FFFF while the other one is an A. So, obviously caged in too small an area. I mean the whole organic and antibiotic free business is fine, but so is normal development! We have spatchcocked the sucker, and then decided to divide totally. We will baste tonight's side with Inner Beauty Sauce and the other one for later in the week will get some Worcestershire Sauce. Both sides are being dry-brined.

I also got a big bag of sweet potatoes [potassium is not coming back up properly.] Tonight I will roast some after a sous vide bath. Tomorrow, I will make a Thai Massaman curry with chicken and sweet potatoes.

Tomorrow we have Olivia for 13 hours! Wish me luck. I will be totally exhausted by 7:30 when they pick her up.
