What's for dinner - Sunday, May 18

It's a beautiful day here, so we're heading to the mountains. We'll grill up a skirt steak for sandwiches and some corn and then whatever other side I pick up at the deli.

Now it's just a matter of getting to the store and on the road.

1. Sounds like fun, my dear fizzgig!

Enjoy your day!

I just bought some pork ribs in some kind of tomato sauce. Since we never got the BBQ habit, I'll bake them. 350 for 25 minutes. Baked potatoes and steamed broccoli with butter and lemon.

Damn, I'm already hungry for it!

8. Sounds good to me

We're finally on the road. Got a late start and have a bit to drive, so we'll be pushing it a bit on daylight but we should be ok.

I'll get some pictures posted in the lounge tonight.

3. Grilled tri-tip

with a cuke/tomato/onion salad. And probably some french fries too, not sure yet. The salad is a must, tho.

Have fun in the mountains, Fizz! (I hiked Mt. Baldy early yesterday morning. I haven't done that since 1989, and given the fact I can barely walk this morning, now I know why it's been that long. But the scenery was awesome!)

5. Sliced roast beef au jus on a bun, the end of the potato salad and cole slaw.

Plus, it's Sunday-clean-out-the-fridge day, so maybe some odd ball leftovers as well.

10. Meatloaf, roasted tomato chewies

I made meatloaf with grass-fed beef from WF. Mixed in some organic pork. Let me tell you, this is the way to get the cost of a meatloaf close to $20.

Oh well.

I roasted tomatoes, too, and got them to the "chewie" state. Then I covered the meatloaf with the tomatoes for serving.

Baked potatoes.

Coleslaw.

11. That's the only way to get your meatloat brown, tho. I have to do the same. Re: the tomatoes,

did you use Romas? Got any tips? Would love to get tomatoes to the chewy stage.

12. I use both

Today I used both Romas and regular tomatoes. The RG tells me it's a bit wasteful to use regular tomatoes, but I generally roast tomatoes when I get them for 99 cents a lb or so.

Here's Mollie Katzen's recipe for tomato chewies. I like to make them when the weather's cool, as it calls for having the oven on a low temp for a 90-120".

This meatloaf was so delicious. Grass-fed beef is definitely worth the extra cost.

14. I grilled a turkey tenderloin and a flat iron steak on the grill, sliced them and

served with caramelized Vidalias and pepper. Also grilled some squashes and pineapple. Mashed potatoes, green beans (mixed with the last of the asparagus), green salad, bread. Fresh fruit (including strawberries from the garden). I do most of my cooking on Sunday a.m., and (after lunch with family) put up the leftovers for the week. This week I will have tacos at least twice from the turkey and steak and salads.

15. grilled pineapple

It's funny--I like both pineapple and tomatoes grilled or roasted. Otherwise, no.

And grilled squash is so different cooked that way.

You'll love the tomato chewies!
