Dinner Friday ~ April 5, 2019

On this day in 1792, George Washington cast his first veto as president. I hope no one in your family vetoes your supper.

I know Himself would vote for tonight's meal - it's a college favorite of his that he taught me when we got married. A simple tuna casserole made by combining canned tuna, instant rice, canned veggies, and cream of mushroom soup, it's a gourmand's nightmare. But with a chilly, damp, gloomy day weighing down on us, tonight is a good night for trailer park food.

What's passing for dinner at your place?

Seize the moment. Remember all those women on the Titanic who waved off the dessert cart. ~~~ Erma Bombeck

It is a fantastic day, as far a weather. Sunny and 78F right now. So, I'm going to be "grillin' and chllin" this evening. Tomorrow -- storms all day.

I am going to throw some flat-iron steak on the grill, along with some boudin. Steak and boudin sounds right for this kind of evening.

If so we will be have omelets with choice of add-ins - asparagus, mushrooms, cheddar cheese, tomatoes, onion & bacon. I'll be having asparagus & grated Italian cheeses, bacon & tomatoes on the side.

Like Casey, I'll be grillin' here as well. I just fired up the Weber and I'll season a flap steak to throw on the grill. Will probably make a fajita this afternoon, since I've got red and green bells, onion, and flour tortillas.

Think I'll make some Dawg Tomato Soup in my new little pot. I'll be adding some fresh basil also.

We ate out of the freezer tonight. I had a bowl of soup and SO had a chicken dish. Not exciting but good.

Picked up another cookbook, yep need more, at Goodwill a few weeks ago. Real Stew by Clifford A. Wright. I flipped through it and was immediately in love.

So, tonight, we had Romanian Chicken Stew, which was more than awesome. I had some leftover French bread to sop up the juices and we had baked apples with walnuts for dessert.

The stew recipe is definitely a keeper.

Cajun stuffed enormous Red Argentine shrimp, 13-15 count. Remoulade to dip. Wild rice, mushroom, and roasted garlic risotto. And asparagus wrapped in provolone, pancetta, and a thinly pounded pork cutlet, baked over sliced tomatoes. And chocolate babka for dessert.
