8/22/2019 - Eat A Peach Day Dinner


This is about the fruit, and not the 1972 album by the Allman Brothers Band.


I'll be joining the celebration on this one. I picked up some peaches from the farmers market this weekend, and I've got two ripe and ready for the grill for dessert. A little frozen yogurt on the side.

I have two slabs of St. Louis ribs on the smoker. Sides will be Bush's Grillin Beans and cole slaw. I picked up a two pack of ribs on sale at the warehouse club, which worked out to $1.75 / lb. Once I opened the pack I discovered that they were from very different size pigs (why do they do that?). Not a big deal in this case, as one of the slabs will be for a different meal, so I'll take off the smaller one when done. Reheats aren't as good as fresh off the smoker, but it's about 6 hours on the smoker at 225, so I might as well make the second slab.

Another meal of chicken parm tonight. Last week I cooked a bunch of chicken for parm and froze some. Tonight we reap the rewards.

Pork chops, stuffing, mixed vegetables and pan gravy was fantastic. Sorry no pictures.

We went very simple. I made a peasant omelette with cubed, old cheddar and scallions. We had toast with that.

Dh has gone fishing a few times recently and froze the fish in water. Boy that takes up space in the freezer I need for green chiles! So he grilled rainbow trout and I boiled corn on the cob.

Made an awesome batch of barbecued pork ribs in the crock-pot and a side of lovely sweet freezer corn. Our tummies were full and we have enough for tomorrow, plus a homemade strawberry pie.

I seasoned and roasted a couple of chicken thighs around noon today, and threw together a nice sauce from the pan drippings. Scraped up the fond and added a little chicken stock, fresh lemon juice, chopped mushrooms and onion, thyme, reduced it, and added a little half and half towards the end. Mixed sauteed veggies for a side.

Just when I fixed my plate around 2:OO for an early dinner, another quake hit - Mag 5. Freaked me out all over again and I could barely choke it down. I'm so over this.

Took the easy route out. Dad had a 4:30 appointment in "town." Caregiver arrived at 5:30 to get Mom up for supper so I pulled a pizza out of the freezer, dressed it up with more mushrooms, roasted red peppers, sausage, green peppers, onions, and more cheese. This way, Dad could re-heat his, and the caregiver could do what she is paid to do--change and feed my Mom. Dad had a tossed salad, Mom had fruit and cottage cheese. For dessert, they had Peach Cream pie before bed at 10 p.m.
