Dinner 1-24-2018 ~ Bottle? Or can?

The first canned beer, Krueger's Cream Ale, came on the market on this day in 1935. It's inspired collectors of stuff to cover walls with the can art. Personally, we prefer glass bottle to cans...and draught over either of them.

No beer with our supper. I do, however, pour a bit of red wine over ham before I bake it. Along with the ham, I'm roasting beets, carrots, and baby potatoes. Cooking some green beans on top of the stove.

What's cookin' in your kitchen today?

I almost never drink beer. The one exception is when I have Japanese food. The beer must be Japanese (Yebisu is Best, but hard to find. Sapporo would be my second choice, Kirin would be my third), it must be ice cold, and it must be served in oversized bottles with little glasses that hold about one swig! I don’t like beer in cans, but I couldn’t tell you why.

I don't drink much beer anymore, with the exception of the summertime. Coming back from a ride on a warm day, well, nothing quite like a cold beer. Better in a bottle for me, but I understand that a lot of the craft beer aficianados prefer cans.

Tonight's dinner was broiled salmon, served over fresh fettuccine with a shallot / sundried tomato cream sauce, nuked broc on the side.

Every now and then I like a Corona with Mexican inspired food - but as tenspeed mentioned, that's normally in the hot summer days.

I'll be having leftover cheese enchiladas, refried beans, and a sliced mango in a few. No beer.

We had leftovers. No beer. But we never have leftover beer.

Since DW is still in a lot of pain from yesterday's dental work, I dug out the leftover New Year's Eve ham bone from the freezer and made a crock pot of my split pea soup: Crock Pot Split Pea Soup with Ham

The kitchen demolition guys were able to reinstall the stove for the time being, so it was nice to not eat out or have takeout again.

My wife likes to serve pea soup as a carb overload by serving it over skinned, boiled potato chunks, and topping it with cubes of toasted white bread instead of salad croutons.

It all really hit the spot on a crappy, rainy day.

I hope DW feels better very soon, bucky - and glad you now have a break from take-out and diners, even if it's temporary.

Thanks, Cheryl. I have tomorrow night off, so I'm hoping to make another home cooked meal. I'm thinking a London Broil served over a yu choy and shiitake saute.

I finally felt like cooking, so I made pasta carbonaroid. I use sour cream and wine in the sauce, as well as the eggs and cheese, so it's not quite carbonara. I made a very simple salad to go with it and made a blue cheese dressing. More than an extremely simple salad (lettuce and shaved red onion) was more spoons than I could manage.
