Dinner, Sat.3/18/17

Tonight will be one of the best reasons for cooking a corned beef yesterday.....
Ruben Sandwiches.
I'm also making Dawg's No. Dakota tomato soup to go with them.

What's going on at your house?

Chicken stir-fry with four colors of bell peppers, onions and celery, over jasmine rice. We had po'boys and fries for lunch, so we need something light.

Thanks for the reminder, Kay! I need to make that soup again soon.

So far, it's celery and clam dip tonight. Obviously the menu needs a bit more fleshing out.

I'm in a hotel tonight. There is a microwave and a coffeemaker. Oh, and a clothes iron and ironing board. There are lots of YouTube videos on cooking with a clothes iron. Quesadillas, perhaps???

Last night, DH and I weren't feeling well, hayfever.
So it's leftover leftover grilled steak and b/s chicken thighs
with steamed green beans and sliced tomato for DH and
Spaghetti Squash for myself.
I finally found a Cherokee Purple and DH is over the moon for it!
It's very ripe and LARGE, so he's had tomato for breakfast,
lunch and now dinner

Yes Indeedy ! Tonight will be one of the best reasons for cooking a corned beef yesterday.....

Reuben's on pumpernickel with local grocery store made Russian dressing.

Dx was a whirlwind in my kitchen. She used 2 of my 3 potatoes that were going to go in the corned beef vegetables for her Mom's potato salad, and a Scandinavian cabbage/ fruit salad with whipping cream dressing. I'm pretty sure the Vikings explored Ireland, so I figure that's legal.

As far as the rest of the weekend corned beef dinner plans, Irish soda bread, didn't happen; Apples for baked apples - went into the fruit salad,as did a handful of chopped dates.

I have to agree with KL and Dx and more of you all... reubens are the best.

On our way home on Thursday from a doctor's appointment, we passed right by our favorite fresh seafood market/cafe. Had a bite to eat and brought home two gorgeous flounder. Didn't eat them yesterday because of St. Paddy's so they've been on ice.

Took out the flounder for dinner tonight and they were still encased in ice. Guess they stayed cold.


We had baked flounder that was brushed with a paste of grated fresh lemon rind, grated garlic, salt, freshly-cracked black pepper and olive oil. Sides were baked potato and steamed and buttered baby peas.

Omigosh! The flounder was soooo good. Too bad it's all gone.

It was clear and not too cold so we did burgers on the grill.

Yesterday and today were perfect days for chilly weather BBQ folks.

Today I pigged out on blueberry tarts and some shoestring FF's. I need to stay away from sugar for a looooong time. To much blueberry!

I tired a one pan chicken and rice dinner which turned out not so very good. I think (as I'm probably going to be up till all hours of the morning) I'll make some stuffed shells later on.
