What's for Dinner?

Do you say "dinner" or "supper" when you are talking about your evening meal? My parents and I have this little "discussion" a lot. I guess I tend to call my noon meal "lunch" and my evening meal "dinner". Don't know why I do that, but I do. Lately, though, because Dan calls our evening meal supper, I call it supper sometimes too. My parents (and my in laws) call the evening meal supper and the noon meal dinner. That totally confuses me - I guess I always went out on a date for "dinner" and we made "dinner reservations", and when I was working, we had "lunch" at noon. Yet, here in Wisconsin, they have "Supper Clubs", which are just restaurants that serve the evening meal. (I have no idea where Wisconsin people go for lunch other than the Marshfield McDonald's (which is always sooooo busy)).

Well, whatever you call it, I have a recipe to share with you. The recipe is called "Marlboro Man's favorite sandwich". We enjoyed this mouthwatering sandwich for our dinner/supper last night. It was easy, quick and ohhhh sooooo yummy. Here is the link:

I love recipe websites. One of my favorite sites is from the Pioneer Woman (see my blog list below), go to her website and you can just click on "Tasty Kitchen" on a top tab and it will take you there. The Pioneer Woman fascinates me. She is just cool! . Anyway, this recipe is from her. It is her husband's favorite sandwich (hence the title of the recipe). I did sort of "lighten" this up - I did not use butter, I used olive oil and not as much as she calls for, oh, and I did add mushrooms too. Let me know if you try this and what you think of it. I can't wait to try her Chicken Spaghetti and Twice Baked Potatoes.

Another recipe website that I really like is Recipezaar, which my good friend, Kim told me about. Here is the link:

I really do enjoy cooking most of the time - it is the clean up I hate. Finding new recipes is fun too! Do you have any favorite places you get new recipes from? Please share!

Thought for the day: Kind words conquer


  1. I always say supper, but just an hour south where my sister lives they say dinner for the evening meal! Go figure.

    Your supper/dinner looks yummy. I may have to try to make that sometime. I am stuck in the rut of CHEESEBURGERS!!!!

    I haven't been on pioneer woman for a long time. I must start looking at it again!


    PS-Love your thoughts for the day.☺

  4. Thanks, girls! Jodie, it is easier to try new recipes and stuff when you're not working, so I don't blame you for not stepping out of the box now - maybe over the summer?
    Holly, the Marlboro Man Sandwich can have cheese added, so it is just a fancy cheeseburger! LOL
