Are we eating tonight? Tuesday Oct. 21 2014

It looks like nachos tonight; store bought chips, shredded cheese, just made some chili and am about to make some fresh salsa.

What's happening at your place?

What a coincidence, Beth...pretty much the same thing here.

I made some pico de gallo a little bit ago and will be having that along with some doctored up refried black beans, and guacamole. Fixin' to cut up and fry some corn tortillas here in a bit.

I've got a meatloaf in the oven and will make some macaroni and cheese to go with it. Not sure about a veggie yet.

I also have the Mexican theme tonight.

Last night we went out to dinner and had their specialty of the house
served in a boiling hot Molcajete...
Carne Asada, Marinated Chicken, Shrimp, Nopales (Cactus), Chorizo, Scallions, Jalapeños, Mexican Cheese & Tomatillo Sauce Served with Homemade Corn Tortillas, & Beans & Rice on the side Serves 2 to 3 People.
Wouldn't you know, I forgot my camera but it was a sight to behold, and I've never seen anything like it! It actually would have served four people easily and it was outrageously delicious.
Obviously we bought the leftovers home. The sauce was soooo good. Tonight I'll plop some fried eggs on top for Huevos Ranchero Suprema.
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.

Today we're having a "clean out the fridge" meal with a buffet of leftovers that have accumulated over the last few days. We'll wash it down with the usual iced tea and have some more of that yummy apple pie for dessert.

Late lunch followed by a board of trustees meeting tonight. Got home about a half hour ago and had some leftover NY strip sliced thin on a bulkie roll with mayonnaise and pickled jalapeños.

I was cleaning my freezer too, and came upon this recipe:

Insane Oven Beef Ribs Recipe - Allrecipes.com

I can't say for sure how faithful I was to their recipe nor the accuracy of my following the directions. I think I may have simmered my short ribs too long, but I followed the cooking time and temperature correctly, and the short ribs came out pretty chewy/gristly although they may have been that way before cooking.

It was a "manager's special" that cost me all of $3 for a big serving of short ribs. I served my short ribs with a baked thick potato chips recipe I'm currently designing. It starts out slicing a raw potato into thin slices and baking them. I'll file a report when I'm satisfied with my recipe.
