Dinner Tonight - Saturday??

  Re: (...)
The weather is not real warm (darn it!) and the zucchini are cooperating, so I'm going to make the Zucchini-Parmesan soup from the new Soups, Stews & Chilies Book. Maybe grill some corn for the 1st course, so it feels a little like summer.

Sunday brunch will be the quesadilla they suggest as a 'sidekick' - Scallion quesadilla.

What's everyone else up to?
Retired and having fun writing cookbooks, tasting wine and sharing recipes with all my friends.

We're going with a group of friends to an Amish home for dinner. We have a substantial Amish community just south in Arthur, IL. One of Hubby's editors wrote a nice book about their lives last year.

She arranged the dinner. I'm expecting comfort food! The price is an offering, the expectation is about $15 per person. Should be fun.

That does sound fun! I can't wait for a report on this one. I guess pictures are out of the question.

Last nite (I'm alone this week) I made an osso bucco with balsamic vinegar (from Tony's in Houston) and had part of a bottle of the barolo I got discounted.
Magnificent!! It's 100 outside--85 at nite--I just turn down the AC! Anyway--tonight I'm using the leftover, reduced cooking mixture from the osso bucco instead of a standard marinara and making Giada's parmesan portobello mushroom bake. Think I'll have a good salad with it. Oh, maybe finish the barolo--or save it and a bit of the mushroom for Jane--she was quite jealous when I told her about last nites meal (especially the wine). Pity.

LOL! I bet she was...LOL! That'll teach her to leave you alone for a week!

Osso bucco is one of those things I want to make this winter...if I can find the veal shanks. I don't even think I would be able to find beef.

We are going to Holly's boss's 54th birthday party tonight. It is a "Texas Style" BBQ with a band and the whole bit. It is nearly 95 here today with a dew point and humidity to match so it is going to be a hot and sweaty evening that I am glad we don't even have to bbq at home. I am sure I will be asked to check everything before it is served since a great friend of mine is catering the party...I guess he is expecting nearly a thousand people at the party.

We are having grilled rib-eyes and the butternut squash/leek dish that was posted yesterday. Now I forget who posted it.

That would be Jean. You know, I have everything for that, so it may join my Guiness Pot Roast and polent tomorrow. Too much creamy stuff?
