So, what's for dinner?

Post by observer on Fri Feb 24, 2012 7:23 pm

Seemed like a fairly successful topic in our "old" forum.

It's Friday - so it's chicken wings here.

Going to a birthday party tonight so dinner is likely going to be mostly snacky foods.

Pretty big day for you then? Becoming admin of a forum - and then going out partying? LOL

Hot beef sandwiches tonight - left over from last night's roast beef dinner for guests. Sometimes, I love having leftovers. Makes "cooking" so much easier!

Company in the house since Friday, so yesterday was "clean up the leftovers" day. Today is Pulled pork, three bean salad, and macaroni salad. Haven't figured out what I need for dessert yet.

Hope you ate out occasionally - providing 3 "guest" meals a day can be difficult!

Trying to make garlic shrimp tonight.

I seldom make any seafood from "scratch" - there are some excellent frozen pre-prepared shrimp dishes from President's Choice and the like.

Recipe from the net called "hawaiian shrimp truck scampi". BUT - they want clarified butter - so then I had to download info on how to clarify butter. One site said I had to start with unsalted butter - and since I don't have any of that, I kept looking till I found one that was OK with any butter.

Will let you know!!!

Don't think the clarified butter helped. The garlic was still litle black chunks!!!

Think I'll go back to President's Choice just heat it and serve!

Was OK - but with all the time and effort should have been better than the pre-prepared stuff - and it wasn't!! Maybe next time it might be - but I doubt that there's going to be a next time! LOL

How annoying when all the extra work is not worth it. I love shrimp but especially when it's freshly caught and served. That goes for all fish!
What do you have planned next to try?

Tonight we picked up a Tuscan chicken from Fortino's. Gee, it was tasty, moist and very good. I can just taste the sandwiches for tomorrow.
