8/6/2019 - Farm Worker Appreciation Day Dinner

As foodies, we need to appreciate those who provide the food that we put on the table.

https://whbl.com/podcasts/ag-news-on...reciation-day/



Dinner tonight was cheeseburgers on the grill, potato salad.

I had leftover pad thai and SO had Marie Callender's lasagna with meat sauce.

Grilled burgers, garden fresh beans, and the rest of the potato salad. Peach cream pie for dessert.

I was planning to make Buffalo wings, but I'm not that hungry... yet. Just grazing, for now.

I made a mix of chopped surimi, celery, onion, olives, cucumber and mayo, and had it on a toasted onion bun. It was delish and hit the spot with sliced mango and apple for a side.

...holding my tongue on the vid and pic, so this thread doesn't get moderated or deleted...lol...

Leftovers. After running around all day, I was very glad that I had laid in an inventory of the stuff. Contrary to what Himself might tell you, I do NOT buy "leftovers" in a special grocery department.

I had a small bowl of rigatoni with tomato sauce late afternoon. When DD got home from work we used my new poachers. For large eggs 3:15 makes a perfect poached egg. I had 1 egg and half a toasted English muffin. No pictures. But tomorrow we will probably make eggs benedict. I will get pictures of that.

I picked up stuff for DD to try her hand at making sushi: bamboo rolling mat and rice paddle, seasoned rice vinegar, nori, sesame seeds and avocado. Since this was a first run she opted out of crab and cucumber and just did a basic roll.

They turned out pretty good ... I'm told. I don't eat sushi. I don't like seaweed or crab (I don't care for most fish raw or cooked). I even took a shot at rolling. We'll get better.

California avocado sushi roll. One has spicy mayo added.

We decided to have some dessert. Strawberries and peaches with crème Chantilly and a glass of Porto each. That was really good.
