Food! It’s what’s for dinner. Monday, June 9th, 2008.

While scrolling madly through the contacts on my cell phone desperately trying to find someone to talk to about my meal plans for the evening I had an epiphany…

 

Instead of pestering my mother, sisters, brothers, aunts, grandmothers, cousins, friends, and the UPS guy daily with detailed discussions of the evening’s dinner prep and plans I can pester everyone who comes to my site!

 

Here’s the plan. Every day -when I figure out what it is I’m doing for dinner- I’ll post details right here. It may be detailed enough to include recipes (if the boys are behaving) or just a blurb about what brand of hot dogs we’re having for dinner (if the boys are not.) If I’m feeling particularly ambitious, I’ll photograph the meals and post an update the next day.  If I don’t get the recipes up and you want them just ask!  We aim to please.  Please aim.

 

I reserve the right to omit any dinners of which I am ashamed (for instance- three night in a row hot dog meals) or in case of illness (as in “sick of making dinner”.) I doooo have a reputation to preserve.

 

Actually, the point of this is that dinners aren’t fancy every night. We’re all trying to make ends meet while preparing delicious, nutritious, beautiful meals. This new topic is intended to be a chronicle of both my successes and failures in that endeavour.

 

So what’s for dinner tonight? I’m pleased to say my inaugural entry here is something of which I can be proud…

 

Grilled Dry-Rubbed Tilapia
Chilled Latin Quinoa Salad
Grilled Spicy Zucchini and Sweet Onions
Mojito Slushies (for Mom and Dad)
Limeade and Mint Slushies (for the boyos)

 

Hopefully I can snap some pictures before our son-locusts descend on the plates. Tune in tomorrow!

 

What are you having tonight?
