Dinner 6-26-2019 ~ National Coconut Day

Among a few other "Days", today has been declared National Coconut Day. If I have some pineapple juice in my basement, I plan on shaking up some Painkiller drinks late tonight. I've tweaked the recipe from the original, but we like our version better.

Supper will be tacos, both beef and chicken. You see, when I made yesterday's chicken soup, I kinda forgot about the chicken I had set aside. Technically, that makes last night's supper chicken stock soup. I'll shred the chicken and heat it in some salsa verde, and use the ground beef that was going to be beef and mac for ground beef tacos.

What's shakin' at your place?

Dinner will be cheeseburgers on the grill, and an assortment of leftover sides (coleslaw, Bush's Grilln Beans, sesame peanut noodles).

I made a banana, pineapple, and coconut smoothie earlier. A little rum may have improved it, but that was around 9 am! I saved half for adding some ice to later - maybe I'll add the rum then.

The last of the freezer stash of Costco loin lamb chops tonight. Time for another Costco run.
The chops will be be pan fried as usual, with roasted asparagus and baked spuds.

We went to a German deli after eating at a German restaurant a couple of weeks ago. They had mini pork shank that had been smoked. I don't remember what she called them in German, but the cut is known as hog wings or pork wings. I heated those up in chicken stock with mirepox and then used that to make gravy for spaetzle. We also had red cabbage.
