Dinner 10-18-2017 ~ What "National Day" do you want today?

Today could be "National Chocolate Cupcake" day. Or, if you prefer, "National No Beard" day. I'm hoping Himself doesn't find out about that one... Or pick from three other "day"s here: October National Days

We're working our way through leftovers tonight, mostly from our pork-and-sauerkraut supper. I'll need to make a mashed potato or two. .....I also now have a taste for chocolate cake...

What's your dinner tonight?

We'll be having scrambled eggs, pan fried ham steak and sliced tomatoes. I will also have some hot banana pepper rings and a slice of TJ's smoked gouda on the side.

I seated some black sesame crusted tuna steaks on the grill, and made a soy/peanut/garlic dipping sauce.

DW made tempura shrimp with a citrus/sweet chili /herb dipping sauce, and white rice.

Got a bit of a late start - it must be rubbing off, CG

I have some chicken thighs rubbed under the skin with salt and salt-free Penzeys Mural of Flavor seasoning roasting in the oven. I'll bake a couple potatoes and braise some green beans to go with. I also baked some no-knead bread the other day, so I'll slice and toast and rub some in the chicken fat

I was all set to make the smothered bacon wine asiago chicken, but at the last minute, I realized I didn't have any cream.

So I decided to try the bacon cheddar ranch potatoes instead. This is another experiment, for anyone keeping count.

The recipe called for an envelope of Ranch dressing mix and red potatoes. All I had were new potatoes and I accidentally picked up the Ranch dip mix envelope. But it still smelled delicious just going into the crock pot.

It's supposed to cook for 3 to 4 hours on high in the crock pot and I've got my fingers crossed for 3. And what I don't eat tonight, I can use as a side to the chicken tomorrow - IF I get to the store for some cream.

I pan seared some pork tenderloin medallions and served that with rice pilaf and butternut squash.

I put the little oval individual casseroles to good use again tonight.

Bottom layer was leftover frozen jasmine rice, mixed with some green onion and chopped mushrooms. Next layer was well seasoned cod fish fillets with salted lemon pepper, drizzled with melted butter. The final layer was lemon buttered Panko crumbs, and they were baked till golden in the toaster oven at 375 for 20 min.
Easy peasy delicious dinner with SC glorified green salads.

PS..thought I'd add that I found gourmet pink Himalayan salt granules in nice reusable acrylic grinders at the Dollar Store today!! Who woulda thunk it?
(packaged in USA)
