Weekend Dinner Ideas

With about zero time on a busy Friday, here's a quick rundown of dinner plans.  Tonight, some wild salmon is going out on the grill.  I'm pulling the coho from my freezer that I got for a steal at the Whole Foods one-day sale a couple of weeks ago, but Sprouts and Sunflower have fresh wild sockeye for $9.99 a pound, and Whole Foods has fresh coho for $14.99 a pound.  With the heirloom tomatoes $3.99 a pound and a big one pound log of Crave Brothers fresh mozzarella $5.99 a pound at Whole Foods, a simple caprese salad will go alongside, plus maybe some Munson's corn on the cob.

Speaking of corn, tomorrow will be some version of corn and cod chowder from Food and Wine magazine.  Instead of the cod, I might use the haddock fillets that Sprouts and Sunflower have for $5.99 a pound, although I'm also toying with the idea of using salmon fillet instead.  Organic romaine is just 99 cents a head at both Sprouts and Sunflower for the side salad.

We'll be back out on the grill Sunday, doing the boneless ribeye steaks that are $6.99 a pound at both Sprouts and Sunflower.  A seasonal summer celebration will go on the side, and I've been wanting to try eggplant and zucchini in tomato-garlic sauce, a new one from Bon Appetit.

Which quickly gets us through one of the last weekends in August, sniff.
