Dinner for Mon. 10/29/18

It's time for soup for supper for us tonight.



Actually, I guess it's more like STOOP as I'm doing a pot of pork shoulder Pozole Verde today because I've been craving it for the past hot months.

What's going on at your house?

We had Cracker Barrel. I got the new chicken fried turkey breast. No big deal. It tasted bland to me. I basically had a tomato juice, a taste of the turkey, the cranberry sauce, 2 biscuits and grits. I also tried the spiced apple cider tea which was also a miss. Won’t be having either again. I brought home my leftovers which will be a whole meal for hub later. I’ll have chicken and stars soup later.

The grocery had Butoni filled pasta on BOGO this week, so we got a couple of packages of ricotta filled spinach tortillinis and made the onion/Marsala/garlic sauce that goes with our homemade spinach pasta.

I was planning on a skillet dinner of kielbasa, potato, bell peppers, onions and eggs, but as it gets later, I think I'll have that tomorrow and throw together a tuna melt instead. Tyler is about done with his snack and homework and it's such a beautiful afternoon - I'd rather spend it playing ball in the backyard with him instead of chopping up all that stuff.

Tonight's dinner was an attempt at copying a meal we had out a few months back. I bought some dry scallops for $10 / lb. a while back and froze them ($18 / lb. yesterday). Not as good as when I bought them fresh, but not bad.

I made a bed of corn, bacon, red pepper, and shallots for the scallops. I found some reasonably large asparagus, so those were roasted with EVOO and garlic.

Mrs. T said "This is a really elegant dinner". It's only Monday.

Elegant works for me, tenspeed, no matter what day of the week it is. After all, when you're retired, EVERY day can be Saturday.

That sums up why we stopped going to Cracker Barrel. Seems like no matter what we ordered, it all tasted the same.

I'm pretty sure tonight's supper won't taste bland to us. I'm trying a recipe I found in one of my murder mystery books, "Spunky, Funky Black Bean Chicken". It has onions, chili powder, black beans, tomatoes, chicken, smoked sausage, and red bell pepper. We'll probably be burping all night long.

We had a rescued container of empanadas from the freezer and salads SO made.

I thought I'd get an Octoberfest type meal in before November..although, this sausage and the Pirogi are a bit more on the Polish side.

Polish works for me, Roch!

Himself said that dinner smelled like old socks while it was cooking. Thankfully, it tasted nothing like that!
