Dinner....Fri. Mar 18th

What's planned for your dinner tonight?
I'm thinking about a casserole, or maybe some kind of a roast chicken. I have an abundance of asparagus I'd like to roast in wrapped bacon like Pac did recently. That's it......beer butt chicken and bacon roasted asparagus.

Whatcha thinkin for dinner?

Kayelle, I season the inside of the bacon with lemon pepper before I wrap the spears. mmmm... I bought some asparagus the other day, too. Maybe I'll join you in sides tonight.

I am thinking a large amount of Lake Erie perch for dinner tonight. Which means I better start thawing the block of ice they are frozen in.

Check....lemon pepper. Speaking of bacon, I sent away for something called "Bacon Salt", and sprinkled it on my scrambled eggs this morning. I'm such a sucker for anything bacon.

Another side tonight will be leftover Colcannan...I forget from one year to the next how much I love that.

Today I'm making Tomorrow Stew, using freezer leftovers.

This one is made with a package of sherry braised pork, cut into bite size pieces.

3 cups ham stock made with the skin of a ham, cooked all day.

Mushroom stems
Green beans
Mixed Vegs.
Small red potatoes
Small chopped onion
1 can stewed tomatoes with juice
2 cups baby lima soup
Bay leaf
Mrs. Dash

The reason I call it Tomorrow Stew is that I'll cook this today, but save it in the fridge for tomorrow. Of course, I'll have a small taster cup before cooling and refrigerating, but the real meal will be better tomorrow, probably served with cornbread.

Tonight will be fried Pollack, french style green beans, and probably a couple of smashed red potatoes with butter stolen from the Tomorrow Stew.

Dad and I have our "workouts" at the Y today and usually after we aren't hugely hungry. I will probably have spinach salad and give him a meat pie with cucumber and tomato.

I'm thinking hamburgers. Not sure of the sides. Have some mushroom sauce leftover from the chicken last night. I'm thinking of adding some green beans to it for a variation on the traditional green bean casserole. Salads too.

On the downside, it costs 16 bucks a can.
On the plus side, it has a shelf life of ten years

I've heard that bacon salt is good stuff.
