Whew, this summer has been busy. Travel, then deadlines, then more travel, then family stuff, then more travel. (And pretty much all obligatory travel--family, work, etc.--not fun travel.) Fortunately for me, things will be calming down in the next couple of weeks.

(On that note: if you sent me an e-mail in the last month or so and I have not replied, I have not forgotten you! I will get back to you very soon. And: I'm sorry.)

Anyway, dinner poll time. I have the meat of half a roast chicken (mixed white and dark, and it got pretty shredded in the course of getting it off the carcass) that needs eatin' before I turn the bones and bits into soup. (The reason that "chicken soup" is not on this list: I'm going to make that later in the week, once I've achieved stock.)

What should I do with it?

So, having got back from vacation, I get to make myself dinner again. Yay! Time for another dinner poll.

I have some artichokes that badly need to be used, so the first list is What To Do With Artichokes. And I have been seriously craving fresh salads, so the second is What Kind of Salad. There will also be some kind of grain, probably bread.

(If the artichoke dish doesn't include a protein, I'll add an appropriate one--beans, tofu, tempeh, bacon, or chicken--to the salad.)

...dinner poll!

I know I'm going to be having shrimp tomorrow, but I am undecided as to how. Help me out, O Internets!

[Poll #1576121]

(If the dish doesn't have a carb inherent in it, I'll serve it with fresh bakery bread. Regardless of which gets picked, I'll make some kind of appropriate vegetable component or side dish [I have fresh carrots, frozen sweet peas, frozen corn, frozen spinach, fresh tomatoes, plus an apple, an orange, and innumerable lemons and limes]. If you have any ideas as to what to do with those, though, I'm all ears!)
