3/21/2019 - Bach's Birthday Dinner

Johann Sebastian Bach was born on this day in 1685. Amazing to think that after 334 years we still listen to his music.

Local supermarket has littlenecks on sale for $2.99 / lb. (12 count), so I picked up three pounds. Clams and fresh linguine tonight, salad on the side.

The little one-off grocer in the next town runs "Wacky Wednesday" deals each week. One of yesterday's offerings was Kentucky Legend half hams for $1.99 a pound! I rarely find that brand of ham for less than $4, so I surely bought one yesterday. I would have bought more, but I am trying to cook down the contents of my freezer...

Sides will be sauteed zucchini, steamed broccoli, and micro'd potato.

I think tonight will be pan fried thin rib eye steak sandwiches on Portuguese rolls. There is American cheese, fried onions and peppers to add to sandwich. I will probably just have a butter schmear, salt and ground pepper.

Pulled pork sandwiches from last night's Kaula Pig. I'll make up some vinegar based Carolina BBQ sauce. Pineapple salsa on the top, and potato salad on the side.

I had one with butter schmear and one with schmear and a slice of cheese on mini Portuguese rolls. And deli potato salad on the side. Very good.

I have Huli Huli chicken marinating in the fridge, which we will probably broil later, since there's been a lot of rain today. I have leftover rice pilaf, so I'll add some chopped pineapple and hearts of palm to that (the lady who made a green salad with tropical fruit for Monday's dinner had leftover fruit and didn't want it) and make salad. Eating late tonight because I have to get an MRI at 6:30.

CG-- Ky Legends is my favorite ham too.

Nice sunshiny day, good enough to work on my suntan under my stocking cap, hoodie and gloves and do some grillin'. We had grilled brats, sauerkraut, cole slaw and a small bowl of potato salad.

No oomph today, so we are ordering out. I will get a cobb salad and Stirling is getting a club roll (grilled smoked meat, salami, and stuffed chicken on an onion roll) and a baked potato.

I threw together a corned beef hash from the last of the leftovers. Turned out really good. I tasted a bite around 3 this afternoon and knew I couldn't resist the rest of it, so I fried an egg for a side and devoured it all.

I'll probably have some cheese and crackers or maybe some fruit to snack on a little later.

It is another nice evening to cook outdoors, so I'm going to grill up a cheeseburger.

A friend took me out for my birthday. We both had French dip sammies, quite tasty.

Dinner. I was too tired to make the salad. Added some dried cherries to the rice.

OH and I have a simple meal after the concert usually in a nice restaurant, where we can re-live the music.
