So last night I had me a 1/2 tin of beans (Heinz), fried mushrooms, a couple over-well eggies, Fakin, and 2 slices of toast w/ orange marmalade.

Steak hash. The strip from last night's porterhouse, fried onions, mushrooms and leftover baked potatoes. Caprese salad with cherry tomatoes. A surprisingly good Smoking Loon Pinot Noir. Dessert was another glass of wine.
My favorite dessert!

The temperature made it up to the mid-40°s, so I lit the grill because a burger sounded really good. I made a quinoa and brown rice pilaf and roasted Brussels sprouts as an easy and healthy veggie side.

I'm seriously hard core when it comes to grilling. It can be 10 degrees here, providing there isn't a blizzard in progress, and we still grill twice a week on average. But then, all I have to do is open the door to the upstairs deck, roll the grill to the door, and stand inside while I'm grilling.

It has been unusually warm this year with the exception of that snowstorm at Christmas. We'll often light the grill on Saturday because I shop on Saturday so I'll pick up a few pounds of the freshly ground burger. I wish that I could get a course grade of burger but I'm too lazy to buy a chuck roast and grind it myself in a hand-cranked grinder that I inherited from my parents.

We just have a little Weber Jumbo Joe grill, it is a quick job to light while I'm setting table and making the veggie side dish. I even threw some oak and sugar maple twigs on the grill for smoke. I'm out of hickory or mesquite smoking chips and the stores have them put away for the winter. They look at me like I am nutso now when I ask to buy charcoal in December.

Meat and tomato sauce with penne pasta and a green salad. I did buy the meat with the intention of grilling hamburgers, but had last minute change of plans. Like to grill all year round also.

i made grilled ham and cheese sandwiches for the family. turned out ok, considering i only had my wife's goose food white bread to work with.
I busted out sandwiches again after a long time... made turkey, cheddar, tomato and lettuce on Ciabatta for me and my kid the other day... yum.

Does anyone else ever just do a "Skip It"? Sometimes getting dinner together seems too gargantuan a task.

Twice a week we have a "fend for yourself" night; the rest of the time we take turns making dinner, and weekends are big brunch days with the leftovers being consumed at dinner.
