Dinner Saturday, 11-10-2018 ~ RIP Edmund Fitzgerald

Today is the 43rd anniversary of the wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald, as memorialized by folk troubadour Gordon Lightfoot. All 29 souls on board perished with the ship.

Sounds like a reason for comfort food to me. We'll be having one of Himself's favorites from his college days, a tuna-rice casserole. Simple, basic, and so friendly. Like a hug from the inside.

What's going down onto your plate tonight?


And a little (sad) dinner music:

Moroccan ground beef kebabs, raita, charmoula vinaigrette, curried cuscous, and homemade pita that had been in fridge for 5-6 days. I'm aging the dough from now on.

Make sure it's a cooking tagine and not just a serving tagine. The extremely decorated and pretty ones tend to be just serving tagines. It will cracklings and break if it's a serving tagine and is used for cooking.

Thank you!.... I had no idea. She brought home two, and they're both decorative.

Love Gordon Lightfoot.
I made a vat of chili, more than enough to share and to freeze.

You're welcome. I didn't know either until I started researching to buy one.

Winds died a bit, so I could grill dinner, even though we're in the upper 30's. I've had the gas Weber blow out before on windy nights. Marinated steak tips on the grill, roasted sweet potatoes, nuked broc.

It is finally cold enough for chili, so I made a modest pot (not a vat). Since I usually burn my tongue on the first bite of chili, I had time to snap a picture -- and the temperature was just right to eat.

Tonight's dinner was grilled kielbasa, tater-tot crowns and tossed salad.
