T.G.I.F. Dinner, 12/20/13?? - cjs - 12-20-2013

What's on the menu for everyone today?

Pizza brunch here with the Antipasto l/os for topping. Later, something with the leftover pork tenderloin.

I have no idea? Off to look for inspiration.

One of my favorite burritos - grilled spice rubbed chicken, caramelized onions, spanish rice, homemade guacamole. They'll be big boys.

Okay, I've decided on Honey Citrus BBQ Chicken. I'll do steamed broccoli for the green side, but the starch is a little of this and that. I have leftover Corn Casserole and polenta. I'm thinking of trying my hand at baking or frying the polenta. But I have no idea how to do either?

I'm not sure on dinner yet. I have some leftover chicken - if my back straightens out I'm thinking some enchiladas.

Daphne the only time I've ever been able to successfully fry polenta was with Jean standing by.

That doesn't sound promising! LOL!

Daphne, as long as your polenta is chilled, cut into squares and add to a hot skillet coated with spray and a little oil. Brown quickly, without moving around - let a crust form before moving and that's it. Any kind of sauce is great with it.

IF anyone ever has too large an antipasto salad to eat, be sure to take it home and use for topping on pizza. This was wonderful and the added bonus is they added chunked up canteloupe in the salad and it really added a nice flavor to the pizza also!!

Thanks, Jean! I'll give it a try!

We're headed to Empire State South to celebrate with the graduate. We've not eaten there before, but apparently the jars, listed under Snackies, are really amazing. It may be one of those dinners where we spend so much time with the starters that we wind up sharing the entrees and desserts as well. It's so fun to eat that way!
