Dinner for Fri. 3/16/18

I have a special dispensation from St. Paddy himself for this lent Fri.

SC and I will be leaving tomorrow for a fun weekend away from home so I'll be cooking my traditional Corned Beef and Cabbage dinner for tonight.

What's going on at your house?

I haven't figured out the religious overtones about this or why, but the local archbishop is indeed granting special dispensation and it's ok to eat corned beef today even though St Paddy's day is tomorrow. We are not catholic and don't follow Lenten rules beyond who has the best Friday fish dinners. Not wanting to push our luck too far, I am stopping for Chinese take out on the way over to Dx's for dinner. Shrimp curry, sesame chicken, so-so egg rolls.

I'm guessing with 100% certainty that the half gallon minty choc chip ice cream we had some of just the other night is gone, so I will pick up a new carton different flavor for dessert.

Haa...I had no idea and was just kidding about being special.
I'm Catholic as was my Dad, but my Mom was not. In those days it was fish every Fri. and Mom didn't like fish. She said Catholics had to eat fish because St. Peter was a fisherman and he needed the business.
There might be some truth to that, but my Mom was a hoot.

GD is having leftover rotisserie chicken with stuffing and broccoli. SO and I are having country-style ribs with pilaf and a salad.

ROFLOL! That's great! I'm stealing that one. Thanks, K-L.

I saw a great sale on PEI mussels this morning, so I picked up a bag, probably about 3 dozen medium to small sized for $7.

Then I "assisted" DW in making them in a marinara sauce from scratch since she'd never made mussels nor a scratch sauce before.

Man, they were fantastic. They were so fresh and almost creamy in texture they were so tender.

DW also made a frozen mushroom topped foccacia to go with them.
