2/17/2018 - Random Acts of Kindness Day Dinner

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Random...f_Kindness_Day

Veal piccata, risotto Milanese, roasted asparagus. Nothing made in advance in this Pop restaurant (Mom was binge watching Mark Harmon). Fortunately the patrons were patient, as the asparagus took 25 minutes, and the risotto took an hour and a half. Complimentary wine was offered to those waiting for their meal.

My random act of kindness was making both meatloaf and hamburgers for DH as though he could ever have enough of those. He had bought me some smoked salmon as a treat and I needed to repay that kind favor. And it was delicious.

A big salad to follow.

I made a corned beef, cabbage and potatoes in my Instant Pot.

It's another beautiful afternoon so it's off to the new grill I go.

I have two beautiful dry brined rib eyes and a grill basket to be filled with marinated veggies.
I'm excited to see how the new grill does with one of our favorite meals.

Pan fried pork chops with toasted egg noodles and sautéed mushrooms and onions.

Though it is also National Cafe’ Au Lait Day, we did not partake.

Hmm, the only random acts I can think of today, is I brushed the cat, she loves her brush and removed shoes after coming in from outdoors Pretty standard, not sure if one needs to do something special to qualify.

The grocery had avocados 5/$5. I bought 3. They apply price reductions accordingly.

We had dinner early. Good day for grilling, as it was several days this week, except we were too busy celebrating other momentous events or something.

I made "Old ladies on the bus" -grilled chix breasts and thighs brushed with orange marmalade, lime juice and bbq sauce mix. I love the name of this recipe, as overheard by someone eavesdropping on old ladies riding the bus.

Dx made Cheryl J's Black Bean Corn Salad, ( could have swore it has black olives, which were added) and we had guac and chips too. M&M's for before and afters and a cuppa decaf.

I was a couch potato today, so my random act of kindness was to throw the tennis ball for psycho-poodle to fetch.

I am repurposing leftovers and fridge cleaning. So far, just an appetizer. I stuffed a couple of large jalapeños with leftover Cuban roast pork and queso fresca, dipped them in batter, and fried them.

I'm not sure what to make next.

Looks delish, Kayelle.

My "act of kindness" was purposeful. I grocery shopped. I had to replenish the supplies since I was down to <pint of milk, a couple T of half-and-half, and a pound of Brussels sprouts. And condiments. Need to feed Himself more than mustard-basted Brussels sprouts.


Tonight's dinner was baked pollock fillets with a seasoned cracker topping. Sadly, I could not get the seasonings to look like a Jackson Pollock painting. Sides were a bonus buy of Stouffer's mac and cheese and sauteed zucchini. Also made salad.
