10/22/18 Mon. National nut day dinner..

What (or who) is your favorite nut?
Mine is Macadamia with cashews a close second. Don't like peanuts.



I'm making Beefy Ratatouille with Orzo for dinner.
What's cooking at your abode?

I bake mostly with walnuts. Pecans for pie. Pistachios for eating out of hand.

Dinner will be leftover chicken, broccoli, ziti from last night.

Is this day for serving nuts as a food, or to whom?

Gently warmed leftover rib eye and shrimp from yesterday's grill will be dinner. Either a salad or asparagus for a side - haven't decided yet. Definitely sliced apple will be on the plate. My daughter, grandkids and I went apple picking a few days ago and I've been snacking on a couple of those beauties daily.

Hmmm....nuts. I like most of them, but my faves are cashews and pecans.

I have yet to meet a tree or ground nut that I didn't like.

Faves are pistachios, brazil, and roast peanuts in the shell.

I have some country-style pork ribs dry-rubbed with Penzeys Northwoods seasoning waiting to be be pan-roasted in bacon fat I'll make a mustard cream sauce with the drippings and add some dried sage from the garden. I'll also braise some green beans from last spring's garden and I have some rolls made with no-knead bread dough about to go into the oven.

I love nuts Pecans, cashews, almonds, hazelnuts, pine nuts and peanuts - luv them all. I haven't had macadamias or pistachios much. Pistachios sure are pretty on baked goods, though.

Plenty of nuts on this forum, and it wouldn't be anywhere near as much fun without them.

Tonight's dinner was stuffed pepper soup, Dutch oven bread I baked this morning, and a green salad.

I like all kinds of nuts, too, but my favorite nut is Goober. Not peanuts, but our son!

We had blupper today - I made my one cooked in the late afternoon. I made a mushroom omelette with smoked Gouda cheese and a generous amount of Spice House's Lake Shore Drive seasoning, and apple pancakes with the last of the orange syrup. If we get hungry, we'll just rummage.
