Tonight? Blanched broccoli rabe sauteed with garlic, red pepper flakes and cannellini beans, served with hot and sweet sausage. Plus, crostini with olive oil, garlic and oregano.

 
Hey!  That sounds like an Olive garden commercial.

    Somehow I don't think Olive Garden would be able to sell greens and beans to its customers.

      I'm making Kraft spaghetti out of a box, 


      Interesting.  I have never heard of Kraft spaghetti in a box.  Must be a regional thing, but a product locator at the Kraft website tells me it is available at a Dollar General not too far away. 
      I wonder how many products we think of as common are unknown in other parts of the country.

      When I was a kid, we would have it as a special treat. Now it's my "I'm too lazy to bother" meal. It's really not bad.
       
      Tonight, since I had to work at 6am and got pretty beat up while I was there, and I still feel like crap, I'm making Campbell's tomato soup with tuna sandwiches. Eventually I'll get back to actually cooking, but that day is not today.

        Tonight I'll be cooking INDOORS...(damnit!)
         
        A Golden Grain box of Garlic Alfredo with added chunks of bbq chicken thigh from my freezer...
         
        I also planned on some sourdough garlic bread (comes from SF) but it had funny green spots on it (damnit!)...
         
        Mexican Cocacola...
         
        Horehound drops for dessert...

          I had dinner with my mother last night.
           
          Thai restaurant where I had Masaman curry with chicken served with white rice.

            I had a late lunch so I'm not cooking a full dinner tonight...a late dinner after 9:oo PM on the grill...
             
            Just a Evergood Cajun Hot Link, split and the outside had crosshatch scoring...on an Oroweat wheat bun (they started in North Hollywood, CA) and topped while still on the grill with Kinders Mild bbq sauce, and bottle of Mexican Coke...
             
            Simple but good...

              I made pan roasted bone-in pork loin chops in salsa verde, and sweet and sour green beans (my grandmother's recipe I modified) for dinner last night. Leftovers for lunch today!

                Tonight is Lasagna
                 
                I am making a chicken, mushroom and spinach lasagna, garlic bread, salad, and for dessert fresh apple crisp made with the apples I got at the orchard today (along with 2 gallons of one of the best ciders I have tasted in a while, this season made perfect apple cider)  I got some breyers old fashioned vanilla bean ice cream to top the warm apple crisp.

                  It's the home opener for our AHL team, which means I have to be there three hours before the game. Luckily, it's also dollar beer and dollar dog night. Not that I can have a beer, but dinner will be a couple of hot dogs and some onion straws.

                    It's been very hot here the last couple of days.
                     
                    So, although I boiled some water I didn't heat up the kitchen much.
                     
                    Tuna salad with Green Goddess Dressing, lots of black pepper and I added some spice with some citrus barbecue rub.  Rubs have lots of interesting spices in them.   (Yes, including salt)

                        Kraft has brought back Green Goddess.  It's pretty good.  I found it first at Walmart and now our Ralph's (Krogers) has it.
                         
                        I used to buy Bernstein's back in probably the '70s.

                          Crab-stuffed chicken breast with mixed vegetables and a salad. I omit the breading from the recipe and no one ever notices. I also bake the chicken at 400F for about 25 minutes, because I'm lazy and hate standing over the stove frying. Not that it isn't good fried, I just don't do it. It's healthier my way.

                              We just got back from a wake for a friend who lived in Scotland. 
                               
                              In his honor we had scones, clotted cream, seedless raspberry jam, assorted English pastries, diced melon to keep it healthy and hot tea to wash it down.
                               
                              I'm not sure I want anything else.  It was rich!

                                Tonight is Racing/College Football and left overs.
                                 
                                Reheated Lasagna, fresh green beans from the garden (not mine) and garlic bread.
                                 
                                Mar52 - Sorry to hear about your friend, but the wake sounded like some good eats.

                                  I've been working 70 plus hours a week since the beginning of August and finally got a break this weekend.  Put a Boston Butt on the grill at 11am and took it off at 8 tonight - it was fantastic - had some BBQ beans and slaw with it.
                                   
                                  Having a glass of Merlot right now - life is very good.

                                    CajunKing,  Thank you. 
                                     
                                    My friend hired a bagpipe player to play a few songs.
                                     
                                    (Was it wrong of me to keep thinking I now know who pays the piper?)

                                          Evergood cajun hot link on a Oroweat wheat bun, split and cross hatched on the outside...late dinner after 9:oo PM tonight...thousands of stars out tonight (I'm WAY out in the mountain boonies with zero "light pollution")...
                                           
                                          Dinner was late because I had a late lunch...an old friend from Calistoga was up at the ranch today to help me, and I cooked him a super-burger topped with La Victoria green taco sauce...I didn't have enough large Oroweat hamburger buns, so I fashioned my hamburger meat into a "Longhorn" style that would fit on an Oroweat wheat hotdog / hoagie bun, also topped with L.V. green taco sauce...both had Kinders bbq sauce cooked in while grilling, the the green taco sauce went on just before serving...  and we ate lunch while overlooking the canyon, the fog, and looking towards the ocean (I can see it 17 miles to the west through a gap in the mountains of me)...

                                                The traditional standby, the dish that every cook is judged by, or at least should be, so easy yet so many people screw up, a simple, yet elegant baked chicken

                                                    Tonight I added a can of corn and different spices to last night's soup.

                                                      I was cold, and cranky, and tired, and lazy. So I had a huge bowl of Lucky Charms and an even bigger glass of milk. Sometimes, that is exactly what I need.

                                                            Ah...one of my favorites:  Tri Tip
                                                             
                                                            With the left and right burners ON, and the middle burner OFF, on my gas grill, it takes about an hour for this 1.7 pound hunk-o-meat...
                                                             

                                                             
                                                            I was wondering what to do with the rest of the bottle of spikey haired Guy (Fierri) bbq sauce...so why not dump it on the Tri Tip just before taking it off the grill...
                                                             

                                                             
                                                            YUMMY...!!!  Still a hint of pink inside, lots of juice, tender, and pulls like an accordian...
                                                             
                                                            With the burners on low it cooked at 275* for 50 minutes, and then I turned the burners up on high for a bit less than 10 minutes at 400*...sauce went on about 4 to 5 minutes to go...internal temp 165*...let it rest 15 minutes...
                                                             
                                                            I must confess that having the burners on low was a mistake...purely unintentional...but I "let it ride" after looking at the built in grill thermometer and seeing it was 275*...& it worked out to be one of the best Tri-Tips I've cooked in a while. The meat was frozen, but slow thawed before cooking...
                                                             
                                                            There were NO leftovers...
