Dinner 3-18-2019 ~ Monday, Monday...

Today is a Cook's Day Off at Chez Goddess, seeing as how I did a lot of cooking over the weekend. No leftovers tonight, though - just some nice, warming Smoky Black Bean and Ham soup. Needed to use up a bag of black beans from my mini-grocery store in the basement and the hambone before it spoiled. Gotta get pots of soup in before the weather gets too warm.

What's cooking at your place?

No cooking, just reheating. We had the last of the spanakopita tonight.

The plan was to have store bought, stuffed pasta and a salad. Then the power went out and Hydro Québec said it was expected to be back by 18:15, too late to start cooking. So, we decided to order out. About three quarters of an hour later, the power came back and stayed on. Second supper plan change. Just the stuffed pasta with a no-tomato sauce, no salad. I made a sauce with EVOO, garlic, anchovies, pepper flakes, white wine, cream, parsley, and cold butter. That was my second try at that sauce and, oh my goodness, was that ever good.

but found Herb de Provence in the bulk bins at Sprouts, YAY!!!

Meatless Monday. DD requested a replay of tuna casserole. So dinner was tuna casserole (topped with toasted buttery panko crumbs), steamed asparagus and cornbread.

We had spanikopita filling and tzatziki left from the other night so I decided to make stuffed chicken breasts with roasted Greek potatoes and sauteed spinach.

I got my order from "My Spice Sage" today...Lemon juice powder, Singapore Seasoning, and Soy Sauce Powder. I really like that spice company. https://www.myspicesage.com/?gclid=E...SAAEgIYqfD_BwE

I used the Singapore Seasoning and the Soy Sauce powder to season my bone in, skin on thighs, browning them well in a skillet and finishing in 400 degree convection oven to crispy perfection.

We had Mexican street corn (Elotes) and salads on the side.

A Reuben will be for tomorrow. I didn't have any rye bread, so had to go get some this afternoon. Rye is a must.
