Dinner 3-13-2018 ~ National Earmuffs Day

If you live up north, earmuffs might be a good thing to have today. Thanks to Chester Greenwood, earmuffs exist.

We'll finish up the leftover minestrone, along with a bit of garlic toast made from the last of the French bread. Maybe a bit of snow ice cream for dessert - we had a fresh delivery of the main ingredient.

Popcorn for breakfast! Why not? It's a grain. It's like, like, grits, but with high self-esteem. ~ James Patterson

I remember earmuffs as a kid, about the same time I remembered city chicken.

Vegetarian black bean chili over overcooked sweet potatoes. No, we haven't changed religions, and are still omnivores, but the stuff is just so good! The recipe was from a 25 year old Bon Appetit magazine, which was from a Moosewood cookbook. The sweetness of overcooked sweet potatoes wonderfully complements the spicy chili.

We're up to 21" and still counting.

Dinner tonight was split pea soup with ham and baguette with butter.

We have snow expected this weekend <1"

Dinner this evening I made Steak Frites and large side salads
[no photo tonight]
I'll never forget the first time I made this for DH.
DH: What's this?
Moi : Steak Frites
DH: Huh?
Moi : That's fancy-pants for Steak and French Fries
DH: So why didn't you just say that!?

Dessert was the last of a Rum Cake that went kerflooey!
I've been getting ready for our Communities Bake Sale,
and one of the half-sized cakes did off things, oh well, DH's happy

Craig made Yucatan-style lasagna over the weekend and he finished cooking it last night. It was made with a dried red chile/tomato sauce, Mexican cheese(s), and ground beef spiced appropriately. It was interesting. He really liked it, I thought it was okay, but I'm not real big on dried chile/tomato sauces.
