Dinner for Thurs, Aug. 14th '14

Thanks again to Kgirl for this recipe. Hawaiian 'Oven Roasted' Kalua Pork

I got some fresh banana leaves at the local Mexican market and the pork shoulder is all seasoned and wrapped in leaves and foil. I put it into my handy dandy 5 qt. Nesco Roaster Oven to cut down on the heat in the kitchen. I can hardly wait till dinner time!!

What's on your menu tonight?

That sounds really good, Kayelle!

Grilling burgers tonight, yay! I do love to grill! We'll have more fresh radishes, cucumbers, tomatoes, and bacon bits tossed together with some lettuce to make a salad, and watermelon for dessert.

Grilled burgers and BLT's sound great too.

I forgot to mention that I used my heat proof silicone rubber bands to hold the banana leaves "package" of pork. It's amazing how often I use those things.

You can get them here..http://www.amazon.com/Harold-Import-...+cooking+bands

Since our garden's been so good to us, we're availing us of its bounty tonight. We're going to have Mr. John's Meat-Stuffed Bell Peppers, which I made once before about two weeks ago. Really delicious. 'Cept I didn't have any ground pork so I'm going to use all ground beef. Also, will use my own homemade tomato sauce. Otherwise, I follow the recipe as instructed.

Had a few Italian green beans left that weren't enough to fill a jar to can, so we'll have those lightly steamed with butter and salt. Iced tea to drink and, boo hoo, the last of the strawberry pie for dessert.

We aren't going to Aunt Bea's, but we're having meatloaf too. I baked it yesterday on the tails of my baked goods, figuring I'd just keep running the oven until I was done.

We'll have salad, mashed potatoes, and a veggie to be determined later. And we'll have dessert since I baked yesterday!

Home-made (mild) chicken curry, coconut rice and cucumber raita followed by a large slice of pineapple.

Yesterday I made a pasta salad with grilled veggies and a vinaigrette with red-wine vinegar, and today I made chicken salad with some leftover sautéed chicken, celery, basil and chives. I'm also going to make a quick cucumber salad with ranch dressing and serve it all on a bed of chopped romaine hearts.
