Weekend Dinner Ideas

Super quick post.  For tonight, beef short ribs from Sprouts' 50% off ribs festival sound good, especially since they are great both out on the grill, or done in the oven, if we should happen to have the luck of another rain shower.  Being on a roll with both fresh corn from Munson's and freshly roasted chiles everywhere, the side's creamy stovetop corn with poblano chiles from the New York Times.

For tomorrow, in conjunction with hitting the Farmers' Market, I'll detour a couple of steps to Alfalfa's to get more of that great fresh domestic swordfish they have on sale for $13.99 a pound through October 2nd.  Some pancetta-wrapped figs may have to go on the grill along with the swordfish.  The Munson's corn fest will continue with succotash of fresh corn, lima beans, tomatoes, and onions from Bon Appetit, which I think is great with edamame instead of limas.

We'll do a big chowder on Sunday, which in my first acknowledgement of autumn, with be New England seafood chowder from Bon Appetit.  This is my first bow to using butternut squash (99 cents for organic at both Sprouts and Whole Foods) for the season, with a long winter of it to come.  And organic kale is everywhere, plus Sprouts has haddock available at $4.99 a pound, so it just seems like the week to jump in with it.  (Although the cod and corn chowder from Food and Wine, no time to grab that link, is still calling.)

More to come for the weekdays.
