7/9/2019 - Cow Appreciation Day Dinner

Dress up like a cow, and head over to Chick-fil-A for some free food.

https://www.cnn.com/2019/07/09/us/ch...rnd/index.html

We're going to be appreciating cows with cheeseburgers (a double hit!) on the grill, along with some potato salad leftover from yesterday.

We were going to try out ba'corn because we are getting some of the ingredients with our produce+ basket today. But, the have informed me that there was an oops with my order and there won't be any heavy cream in the box. Well, I guess we will try out the "Texas pork burgers" that are our free gift this week.

The plan is to grill a couple pork chops with Penzeys Frozen Pizza Seasoning and top them with a basil sauce made with peach white balsamic vinegar. Caprese salad with homegrown basil and a tomato from the Feed & Seed store on the side. We have a lot of baby tomatoes out there, and have picked a few chocolate cherry tomatoes, but it's coming slowly this year.

Taxi, if you have some canned evaporated milk, I think it would work with that recipe.

I don't think I actually have any evaporated milk, but I prefer to follow the recipe more closely on the first try.

I'm not feeling so great, so we are just scrounging supper tonight. There's lots of leftovers.

We had salads, cajun seasoned shrimp and grits, and fresh corn off the cob. Oh, and a little MLB All Star Game from CLEEEveland.

I did another vegetarian meal, as my cow appreciation. It was the first "raw tomato sauce" pasta of the season, which is something that I make as soon as I begin to harvest enough tomatoes (after the lentil salad, which has less tomatoes). The original recipe was the simplest one, which is what I start with every year - simply 1 1/2 lbs diced tomatoes, 4 minced garlic (I always use garlic just harvested), 1/4-1/2c EVOO, a LOT of torn up basil, salt, and a generous amount of freshly ground black pepper, all mixed together. Then 1 lb of pasta is cooked, drained very well, then mixed with the tomatoes. Something that I look forward to getting every July - once I get enough tomatoes, and got the garlic out of the ground! I also make variations of this all summer, with various olives added, capers, anchovies, and other seasonings, but I always start with the simple version. Friends check my fridge when they come in the house, to see which version may be in there!

Something that I did today, which I usually do, to improve the nutrition of these white pasta dishes, was put a drained and rinsed can of cannellini beans, and this time some spelt grains, cooked in the IP. These I drop in the pasta at the very end of cooking, mix, and drain. This I usually make a double recipe for.
