Dinner Monday, 10-8-2018 ~ National Kick Butt Day

National Kick Butt Day is designed for self-motivation. In my little world, it will be remembered as the day that the Houston Astros baseball team kicked the butts of the Cleveland Indians right out of the playoffs.


I considered an all-liquid dinner of Bourbon, vodka, and rum. After careful consideration and thinking about the health of our livers, I settled on end pork chops stovetop-simmered in onions, mashed potatoes, and green beans.

What's your plan?

S&P I do love seeing your pictures in lots of your posts.


I made an inspired minestrone soup because it is the end of the garden and there are vegetables everywhere around my kitchen and some still in the garden.


I made macaroni and ground beef for the guys, they'll put the soup over the mac and beef. I'll eat the soup itself. I love this time of year.

What I would like - to go to the pho restaurant in our neighbourhood and have either pho or tempura.

What we will probably do - eat leftovers from our Thanksgiving dinner last night with TB's family.

The good thing about that - we can watch The Voice Blind Auditions while we eat.

Mussels with chorizo and tomatoes, dutch oven bread, green salad.

After my experience with baguettes, I tried freezing a loaf of bread. I usually make a half-size loaf of DO bread in a 3 qt. CI DO. I picked up the small ones (I have two) at Kohls on Black Friday for $15 or less. After thawing, I reheat the bread for 5 minutes or so at 300 F to firm up the crust. I'm happy to report that the bread thaws and reheats wonderfully, and the crust is actually a bit crunchier. From now on I'll make two at a time, with one for the freezer.

Got an inspiration to try a new recipe for shrimp. Read over a bunch of online recipes and used them as the inspiration to create one of my own based on ingredients I have on hand. We ended up with a pretty tasty Cajun shrimp in cream sauce with farfalle. The easy test was that I liked it. The acid test is that SO really liked it so it's a keeper.

Joey, if you give me some cheesecake, I'll root for your Yankees. *shudder* Never mind, I just cannot do that.

Himself doesn't like previously frozen pork chops. I couldn't pass up the sale this past spring, though - 79 cents a pound! He loved dinner, proving that onions>freezer flavor.

Looks delicious, CG...and I could go for a slice of Joey's mint cheesecake.

I had some refried beans, salsa, and other goodies to use up, so I built a tostada for this afternoon's dinner. Still stuffed, but I might have room for strawberry ice cream topped with some blueberries a little later.
