Dinner 2-7-2019 ~ National Periodic Table Day

Today is National Periodic Table Day. While we're all using "O" even right this moment, will you be using any other in your cooking today? I'm pretty sure I'll be using "Na".

I'll be sauteing up Italian sausages, colorful bell peppers, and onions. I'll serve it on top of polenta and top with fresh grated Grana Padano. What's cooking up at your place?


PS - RIP Frank Robinson. You were a heck of a player, and a ground-breaking team manager.

Tasso pasta, homemade tasso ham, onion, carrot, garlic, yellow and green squash, plus chicken broth and cream, with some Parm stirred in right before serving.

Right off hand, I can't think of any Periodic Table puns that work with lasagna, which is my plan for this cold evening.

Gonna have grilled salmon, cucumber salad and baked potatoes. Nothing fancy. We're just dealing with rain, rain, rain, rain...................

Not being up on periodic tables, I had to look up 'O' and 'Na'. I should have at least known 'O'.

I made a meat loaf today. I'll set aside about a third of it to use up the next few days, the rest will be sliced and portioned out, and vacuum sealed for the freezer.

Sides for the meat loaf this afternoon will be roasted red potatoes and once those are nearly done, I'll add some asparagus to the roasting pan. I like asparagus crisp-tender.

I ended up making a roasted grape tomato sauce to put between the polenta and the sausage mixture. We had salads, too.

SC and I went to the movies, and had a nice late lunch so much later, it's maybe a self made sandwich of leftover rare rib eye from last night.

Green Book was a movie well worth seeing...

I used Chromium and Molybdenum while slicing veggies today for my birds, and Manganese and Aluminum in my soda/takeout.
