Dinner May 11/2015: Monday

I am fixing a traditional Southwestern dish called Bowl of Red, which is just highly seasoned meat, with potato salad and a bit of guacamole and chips.

What's cooking at your place?

A big ol' tossed salad with spring mixed greens, radishes, yellow and red pepper, hard cooked eggs, peanuts, grated cabbaged dressed with EVOO and blueberry balsamic vinegar, S&P, lemon zest and a sprinkle of grated romano cheese with a glass of red. I have to figure out how to make fiddlehead pesto not pesto tonight ... so will have to sample that on pasta. I don't have a lot of fiddleheads, so won't be making a lot, just enough to test. I am cooking the pasta in the leftover water from cooking the fiddleheads and will add roasted walnuts to the pesto not pesto, sauté a couple of fiddleheads and add those to the pasta. Trying to fix a recipe developed by one of the chefs that just doesn't cut it. We sent it back twice. Now it is my turn.

We're eating a meal from the freezer. It's a modified version of a short ribs and tagliatelle recipe from Giada Di Laurentiis.

We're getting a new refrigerator on Thurs. so felt compelled to get something out of the kitchen freezer for dinner. I found a package of TJ's Italian meatballs that I haven't tried yet, and a package of dollar store fresh frozen pasta, along with some frozen garlic Texas Toast also from the dollar store. With a can of TJ's marinara sauce I'll add some chopped green pepper that needs using and maybe some dried porcini shrooms.

We will have leftover potato salad and smoked ribs from last night, as well as fresh cole slaw I made today for DH and sliced fresh Roma tomatoes, cucumbers and carrot with ranch dressing for me. Ribs are warming in the toaster oven and cole slaw is cooling in the fridge

We were going to go out to celebrate my birthday. I didn't feel up for going out, so we ordered Indian food: onion bhajis, chicken jalfrazi, and beef vindalou. It was delicious. There will be Häagen Dazs chocolate ice cream for dessert.

Mmmm, chocolate ice cream. Sounds like you have a very nice birthday dinner, taxy.

We're working our way through leftovers. Himself and I were busy with screens and windows all day, but the sun room is now screened in and should not get as hot as it has. Doesn't take much effort to heat "re-runs". I will make a fresh fruit salad (blackberries, strawberries, orange, tangerine, and 'nanner) for our late night snack.
