What's For Dinner?

What's For Dinner Graphic

Tonight we're having herb roasted chicken (I like the use the leftovers for other things and I need to make some broth!) and baked potatoes. Alexis and I will also be having some local corn on the cob and some "sushi" pickles.

What are you having?

It's time to get ready and go to swim lessons! And Alexis would like to you know..."Finally!" ;oP

Update: 4:09 PM: When we got back from Miss G's swim class and I started to get everything ready to put the chicken in the oven I discovered it's still frozen solid! I briefly thought about waffles, but we don't have enough maple syrup. I was trying to think of something else we could have with the original side dishes, but I'm not having much luck with that either. Back to the drawing board!

Update: 4:41 PM: We're going to have left over meat from last night with the same sides as listed above. Who says compromise isn't good? ;oP

Update: 5:51 PM: When I cooked the corn on the cob it turned fluorescent orange! Fluorescent orange? No way that is natural or are we eating it...WTF? I pulled some frozen corn out of the freezer and we are having that instead.

Orange corn is scary freaky. I just got home and I think I'm going to make an old RR spaghetti with fennel, onion, garlic, anchovy (I LOVE anchovies), bread crumbs, pine nuts, and red pepper flakes. However, I'd rather eat your bacon cheese curly fries!

Other than Caesar salad I've never really had anchovies. That's an interesting combo! :o)

Thanks Heather! I'm just now catching up on my blog reading (or trying to anyway!) That was very sweet of you. I'll pop over in a bit and see. :o)

What does "WTF" mean?

Posted by: Patricia at July 31, 2008 10:50 PM

It's an acronym for "What the (fill in the blank)!" or basically "what in the world??" Just a short hand way of saying "what is happening here??" but not actually using the curse word to do it.

Hmmmm, that's what I thought....just didn't expect the "f" word on this delightful blog. I've enjoyed the recipes and creative, humorous writing. Oh well, my "Favorites" list was too long anyway. Blessings to you!

I don't normally use the word, but the color the corn turned really sort of freaked me out. I still don't know what made it turn that color and no one I've talked to seems to know either, but just thinking about it makes me cringe!
