Dinner for April 15

Tax Day! Do you know where your refund is?

We didn't have steak. We had the roasted veggies (leftovers) and that was it. Husband wasn't in the mood to cook and wasn't too terribly hungry. He said he was sick of cooking (coming from him, this is odd since he loves to cook). I was starving and had nibbled on celery sticks with Laughing Cow cheese shoved inside the little groove.

What did we talk about? I don't remember. How pathetic I am. I'll have to come back and edit this when I do recall it! We had butterscotch pudding for dessert.

Tonight we are having the steak that we were supposed to have last night. A salad on the side will probably be the accompaniment. Husband wants me to make more pudding, but I used the ramekins for raspberry Jell-o. I told him he could make banana splits once and for all.

Do you know that I post the following day for what was eaten and said the night before? Does that throw you off? Does anybody even read this blog?

Dinner for April 14

Last night we did have barbecued chicken again, but it wasn't the same rub. It was a Mesquite-flavored marinade. I totally didn't like the smell of it when husband was preparing it, but after it was barbecued it tasted better...for a while. He made them in the form of shishkebabs like the night before. We also had a nice green salad with other veggies thrown in. You should have seen the mound of croutons my youngest son put on his salad. I told him, "Have a little salad with your croutons!"

My 13-year-old son brought up the Spanish Inquisition and how the king and queen killed everyone who they thought were Catholics so they could take over their businesses. Husband asked him why he would bring up something so miserable at the dinner table. Son said, "It's something I learned in school." My youngest son then went on to contemplate the story of the Catholics being killed and that erupted into a huge discussion about religion that I will not go into right now. I ended up putting a stop to it because my youngest child is 7 and was overwhelmed and confused and was arguing with his brother. Enough already!

Anyway, we did not have banana splits for dessert because dinner was late enough as it was (I looked at my watch halfway through the meal and it said 7:15). Later in the evening I asked husband when he planned on having those and he said, "Maybe never." I asked why he went out to buy bananas earlier in the day and he said, "To eat." Ugh!

Tonight's din-din is steak on the grill. We have leftover salad and also the roasted vegetables from the other day, so one of those will be our side dish.

Dinner for April 13

I hadn't posted in several days (weeks?) because the family wasn't sitting down together for dinner. Someone was always running off for activities of some such.

Last night we did sit down together and had barbecued chicken with oven-roasted vegetables. Delish! The chicken wasn't coated in sauce; husband used a dry rub mix. Anyway, the one thing we really talked about was to watch out for the heat from the tomatoes. Once in the mouth, they explode with steaming hot juice. Me, I didn't care because I don't like tomatoes in the first place.

Another thing we talked about was the test that husband took yesterday for a job. He said he thought he had done well, but the results will come in the mail. I thought they'd show up today, but no. Maybe tomorrow.

Tonight I think we are having a rerun of last night's dinner because it was so tasty. Steak just doesn't sound interesting. Husband took off a moment ago to run to the store for bananas so he can make banana splits for dessert. Yum!
