7-30-13 Tuesday's Dinner is Full of Grace...

Or, perhaps, full of flavor.

I have a pork tenderloin I'll marinate in olive oil, white wine, lemon zest, minced garlic and fresh thyme. Himself will be putting it (them? won't know if it's one bigger or two smaller ones until I open the cryovac bag) on the grill while I steam fresh broccoli and do some sort of starch. Right now baked potatoes with butter and sour cream sound good.

hmmm, maybe I'll shred the leftover chicken I grilled the other night and join you. It would be a good place to use up the last of the corn & black bean salsa.
Any ideas for a sauce? I don't think conventional taco sauce will cut it.

I like ranch dressing with salsa as a sauce for chicken tacos or sour cream with cilantro.

Thanks Fi. You can't go wrong with ranch dressing and I already have some Maybe I'll sprinkle a little chili powder in it.

That works! Tomatilla sauce is good on chicken, too.

That it is, but I've never seen it in a bottle
Hey, it's a piece together meal, I'm not going to make a sauce for it

My sashimi tasted so good last night I think I'll have some more tonight, as an appetizer, and get some nice fat shrimp and some vegetables for mixed tempura.

I haven't cooked much Asian the last two years due to my restricted cooking facilities but now that I have a full kitchen and all my gear back I'm certainly going to cook Asian much more often.
