National Drink Wine Day, eh? Around here, that's celebrated every day!

We had breakfast for supper. Link sausages, lard-fried home fries, and omelette. I wanted to use up some veggies, too; the omelette had onion, mushrooms, bell pepper...and bacon. Himself said it sounded like pizza toppings so I added mozzarella cheese.

So, tonight is grilled chicken and pasta a la the boy.

Good looking meals MsM and CG.

I finally had some spoons for making supper. I did get a fair amount of help with breading the schnitzel. Team work for the win.

Pork schnitzel, rødål, and brown basmati rice. (Potato would have been better, but I'm not eating potatoes. ) This was served with pink wine.

It's going to be a late supper tonight.

Better late than never.

I cooked the loin sous vide for 3 hours at 145, then gave it a quick sear with the Searsall. Perfect. Just slightly pink -- and very tender and juicy.

The boudin was from a smokehouse in East Texas. I had never tried it before. It was a bit too up-front on the spices for cajun. But, it was pretty good, otherwise.

It is 36F outside, but I'm feeling nice and warm right now.

D'oh! Should say "rødkål", which means "red cabbage. "Rødål" means "red eel". There was no eel served at this supper.

A dish I stole and then made my own from a restaurant called I "heart" Tacos. It's a vegetarian burrito made with a filling of skinned/seeded poblano peppers cut in strips or diced, corn, diced onions, garlic, all sauteed, cooled, mixed with creama (which is kind of like a thin sour cream, but tangier) and a Mexican melting cheese, plus green rice (cilantro, onion, garlic, sometimes a raw poblano or green bell, mixed with rice cooking liquid in blender to pulverize solids), wrapped in a tortilla, topped with a green sauce (tomatillos, onions, garlic, sometimes a poblano) and some more cheese. They use the filling part for quesadillas and tacos as well.

Craig went red with a filling using chorizo, refried pinto beans, and I'm not sure what else he put in there besides some cheese, and a red rice (a dried chili, tomato, onion, garlic like above).
