What's For Dinner?

This is one of those weeks where I'm making a plan with the full knowledge that it might get hijacked. We have been invited to a pool party and there are a couple of important birthdays taking place.'s the plan as it stands right now.

Monday: grilled pork chops, sweet potatoes, green beans, baked apples

Tuesday: kabobs, grilled vegetable salad, tomatoes

Wednesday: southwestern cobb salad with grilled chicken

Thursday: leftovers

Friday: hamburgers, oven fries

Saturday: A night with no plan...we will go out, bring in, or wing it. It's good to live on the edge from time to time.

I have some baking to do this week. I'm still ironing out the details with one of my sous chefs, but it will be of the cake variety.

I did a bit of baking last week. You'll see the results tomorrow. I will tease you by saying it was quite tasty and is almost gone.

I hope you all had a nice weekend and found a dad to spoil. We attempted to spoil the daddy in our house. There were homemade cards, a bit of extra sleep due to quiet children, some sun, pool time, no chores, and a grilled dinner.

We indulged with some high quality tenderloins that were cooked to perfection. I dare say these steaks were in my top 3 ever. The Mr. has some serious grill-mojo. Combined with some grilled asparagus, corn, and a tomato was a party in my mouth, I tell ya!

We topped off the evening by taking the kids to a movie. Toy Story 3 got the majority vote. I'm so glad it did. It was worth every penny of the over-priced movie ticket cost. The adults enjoyed it as much as The Offspring. And we have reassured Teddy that he will never ever be donated or relegated to the attic.

So, what's cooking in your kitchen? Any dishes worth sharing? Do tell.
