We are having Sweet and Sour Pork tonight with Vegetable Rice.  I have some nice lean Pork loin chops and a fresh pineapple so will pop it all in a casserole in the oven.  Geoff is out all day at another Golf Competition and won't be in till about 10pm so will keep nicely for him.

Cindy - I had to laugh at your post asd Geoff often does that except he does the drive-in as it is only a couple of mins away from us!

Milica, I would love to make sweet and sour pork in the oven, please send the recipe!

It's going to be hot all week, so I need to come up with some good, cool dishes....as in not heavy. Any ideas?

i vote that doug should fire up the grill and cook dinner outside and be sure to tell him "you're welcome!" when he thanks me for my vote of confidence

Now, if Mona would just get home so I can eat without looking like Miss Piggy by getting into it before she gets here LOL

One of my family's favorite grilled chicken recipes is one of the easiest.  I flatten with a meat tenderizer and marinate boneless chicken breasts for a couple of hours in Newman's Own Lime Vinagrette Dressing adding a few wedges of squeezed limes. Then I grill for about 6 minutes on each side on medium heat while I brush it with Honey Barbecue Sauce.

I usually serve it with a fresh tossed salad and corn on the cob and watermelon.

This dissappears in the wink of an eye ...

MMM, grilled chicken, corn on the cob and watermelon! What a yummy Summer dish Pat.

I made lasagna last night.MMMM... This is one dish that I rarely make, as only Jed and I enjoy it. So now I have plenty for lunch today and I'll put some in the freezer...unless Jed wants to eat it for lunches for the next few days. He is such a pasta lover!

Have no idea what to take out for tonight though

Dorian, it is a pampered chef recipe but one of my all time favorites, and you can get the kids to help!

Garden veggie pizza

I use a pre-made pizza crust but you can use crescent rolls and roll them out into a pizza crust if you like.

1 8oz block of cream cheese, softened
1 garlic clove
1/2 teaspoon of dill spice (I don't measure, just season to taste)

Mix and spread over pizza crust for the "sauce"

use any combination of raw fresh veggies as toppings, cut into bite sized pieces. I usually top mine with Tomato, carrots, mushrooms, cucumber, squash, broccolli, etc. and then top with grated cheddar cheese. I find the more colorful it is, the better the kids will eat it, plus if they make it they'll eat it! mix and match whatever your favorites are.

The kids have a ball "decorating" their pizza, they get plenty of fresh veggies, and it doesn't require cooking so no heat!

Ok, hold the phone! Jenn, do you mean the crescent roll crust does NOT have to be baked? You're kidding on that, right? :) Or the pre-made crusts? I didn't know one could buy pre-baked crusts - of course, since DH is not a fan of pizza (silly man!!) I have not looked for it - I usually buy McCain's frozen pizzas and bake those. But your recipe sounds perfect for hot summer nights!

haha yeah, I buy the premade crust so no baking involved, but if you use crescent rolls you WILL need to bake that!!! Just roll it out instead of separating it into individual rolls, and bake according to directions on can. Make sure it cools completely before spreading the cream cheese mix on otherwise it will melt and become runny. EWW!

DH isn't a fan of Pizza either but this is so different he likes it since he likes his veggies. Think of it as another way to eat salad! You could top it with shredded lettuce!

Well, it's still pretty cool around here and so tonight I'm making fettucini alfredo with grilled chicken and crusty bread.  My waistline is not going to like me in the morning.     I just don't know what it is about this weather that makes me want all this fatty food!  It sure is good, though.

I dunno, Gerda. It's not so comfortable when I'm trying to squeeze into my jeans. ;)

We had Westerns for dinner tonight - yummy - I added some shredded cheddar to mine - some of you may know them as Denver Sandwiches. (Egg with ham and onion, fried, on toast). DGD had 1/2 a waffle - turns out, thankfully, she only has a throat infection, not flu. She has not eaten much the last 4 days - not that her throat hurt! It was her head, eyes, ears a bit and a slight fever. she is on amoxicillin.
