Dinner, Monday, 9/26/16?

Over the weekend I made a fresh tomato soup with some of my frozen crockpotted caramelized onions that turned out really well. Dh has requested that for dinner along with a grilled cheese sandwich.

What are you fixing?

I made a pot of bean and ham soup a couple days ago, so will be having more of that along with a jalapeno corn muffin.

Going back to basics, pasta and meatballs with marinara.

DH had enough of my "frou-frou" cooking.

I'm even going to surprise him with a simple chocolate cake!

One last big, fresh-made dinner. Then most of the rest of the week cooking-free. Had planned on finally doing some gardening with the free time, but I might have to change plans. Looks like gardening might require wearing a slicker and rain boots...

I'm making Picadillo from the recipe Kayelle posted, with my alterations. Sorry, cumin, but ya gotta go!

Temps are still remaining warm but, thankfully, the humidity has taken a hike.

We had braised pork chops, which were fabulous. Great combinations of flavors. Had baked sweet potatoes and Italian green beans on the side. The usual iced tea completed the menu.

Will definitely do the pork chops again.

Threw in lots of veggies and used up the last of the spinach. Yum.

Hmm, I might use up some of MY spinach if I have some of the leftover H&B soup later this week. That looks like a good idea, Cheryl.

Katie, that pork chop recipe looks good. Saved, probably to be forgotten...

Since we enjoyed the picadillo so much the first time, I made a full recipe this time. Just adding to the leftover inventory.
