Dinner Friday, 2-5-2016

We went from no snow to nearly a foot in about eight hours. We need some serious comfort food tonight! Good thing a beef roast was calling to me when I shopped yesterday. We'll have that, along with some roasted cauliflower, mashed potatoes, and green beans. Maybe a salad, because I need to make breathing room in the fridge.

Wonder if tenspeed will be grilling outdoors tonight. And how about the rest of you - what are your plans?

All the Super Bowl wing promos got me thinking. I've got some chicken breast strips soaking in homegrown yogurt in the fridge. The plan is to panko them, bake or fry, and smother in Frank's Redhot and butter sauce. Celery and ranch, though I may be able to find some bleu cheese in the freezer.

Just kind of making it up as I go.

No, but as soon as the snow stops I'll be shoveling off the patio so I can grill this weekend. We have about 6 inches, and it's predicted to be ending in another hour or so. They weren't forecasting this yesterday. I was out on the bike in a long sleeve jersey and a wind vest. What a change!

Supposed to be sunny and in the low 40s on Sunday. Nothing like grilling cheeseburgers on a sunny afternoon in the winter.

Tonight it will be cajun shrimp and linguine, along with a green salad.

I have some hamburger in the fridge that needs to be cooked so I think I'll do up a casserole take-off on cottage pie replacing the mashed taters with tater tots since I have a partial bag of them in the fridge from another meal. Salads too.
I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

A salad and a piece of fried haddock from the deli.

Wanted to be certain we'd have leftovers tomorrow, so I have a mess of Swiss steak cooking in our large electric skillet. We'll have mashed taters along with. Sunny but chilly today and this qualifies as comfort food in our house. Should fit the bill.

I'm giving "Crack Slaw" a crack tonight. After being low carb for so long, I can't believe this is the first I've heard of it. I'll do some rice along side for the SC.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.

We had leftovers of turkey stir fry spiced up with bowl of red, and sautéed asparagus.

Today was cold and rainy day, so to warm us up, I made pork chile verde and served it over rice made with my chicken stock. Sour cream with lime juice and zest and fresh lime juice livened it up.
