What's for Dinner at Your House?

I think I am the only one who can start getting a cold when the weather turns warmer. Yesterday the sore throat started and this morning, it is a full-blown sore throat and stuffy nose. Ugh...and it's supposed to be 80 degrees here today! I guess I'll just soak up the sunshine and hope for the best.

Last night we had all intentions of grilling out, but when the husband got home from work, he immediately went over to our neighbors to help them roof their house. I thought he was just going over to "see" if they needed help, but when I went outside I was greeted with him standing on their roof. Nice. And he's not so keen on heights.

I sure hope they help us later this summer when we plan to do ours. Hint. Hint.

So, the barbecued chicken, along with the roasted potatoes and garlic asparagus were put in the oven instead. I don't do charcoal grills.

It was a fantastic dinner!

Yesterday's consensus on my leftover chocolate fondue was to just make another dessert. Great, just what we need in this house! I'm debating on maybe making a cake or something for Sunday, since it's Easter and all. In case you wondered, most of you said NO to freezing it. You are probably right.

And now, here's my question to you. What's for dinner at your house tonight? I'm in a dinner rut. I need some new ideas. Help!

In case you need some help - the husband rarely goes a meal without meat, so it needs to have some version of fish, beef or chicken in it. Oh, and side dish ideas would be great to! Simply click on the McLinky icon below and add your favorite recipe.

I'll pick some to try out, I promise!!!
