I haven't made a meatloaf in a long time so I'm thinking that would be good. Mashed potato's and green beans.

Soup tonight. Portuguese Kale, Sausage, and Potato Soup. This is quickly becoming one of my faves.

Nuked nachos with too much salsa and leftover boiled shrimp. Black forbidden rice pudding.

We had "stuffed" Mirlitons.

The mirlitons were peeled, seeded and simmered in a quick shrimp stock made from the shells of the shrimp used in the sauce.



The stuffing was made with the trinity, spices, fresh bread crumbs and chopped mirliton. Sauteed until carmelized.



Finally, a cream sauce, rich with crab and royal red shrimp.

royal reds were a big deal a few years ago, craig, but i haven't heard or seen much about them lately. are they really much better than the average gulf shrimp, as i've heard?

btw, that looks delicious.

and i had to look up mirliton, lol. aka chayote.

i had another good baseball practice last night. my "troubled" kid really warmed up to me last night and paid good attention to everything we did. his mom came over to me after practice and asked what we did to him this past weekend because he's been such a good kid at home. that made my night.

i stayed with him and his brother after practice for a little while before my coaches' meeting started. he pitvhed to me; his brother hit. it was fun.

when i got into work, i got some really good beef and chicken empanadas, and a side of pinto beans. either this place (empanada mamas on 9th avenue) has improved greatly, or i was just really hungry. they used to suck, but these were really good. crispy and well stuffed with the shredded beef or chicken.

Made soft shell tacos last night because I had some pre-cooked ground beef I had defrosted and needed to use. Gave up on spice packets years ago since I found a really great seasoning mix on another website (sorry DC ). It was a little dry when I first mixed it since the meat had been frozen so I added 2 parts water to 1 part Tequila. Mmmmm, tacos.

They have been available locally since I started buying them. The last ones I bought were wild caught from Argentina, individually quick frozen, without heads in 2 lb bags. They have a texture and taste that reminds me of shovel-nosed lobster.

They look like a giant roach. The only way you are ever going to get them is by diving. They are pretty previlant in Gulf waters.
