Dinner Saturday, May 19, 2018

The day started on the chilly, rainy, damp side. I am making a pot roast in the pressure cooker. It is an adaptation of my Swedish Sailor stew. We'll see how the Elders like it.

We're going to this Brazillian steakhouse in downtown L.A. tonight to celebrate, immediately following my grandson's graduation ceremony.

Got some pretty good hoagie rolls at a bakery today so it's Italian sausages, peppers onions and jarred sauce and melted cheese tonight. Chocolate ice cream for laters.

I have no idea yet what dinner is going to be. I had to work at 8:30 this morning and just finished up. Third weekend in a row I've had to work, and I've had enough of it. I'm taking off Memorial Day weekend completely... and shutting off the phone.

One meal I always make when SO is away is rack of lamb. That’s what’s for dinner tonight. Rice pilaf and a vegetable will round out the meal. I sear the rack then coat it with a blend of parsley, garlic, thyme and rosemary and finish it in the oven.

Wow, today is the 7th anniversary of my late dh's death.

Feeling like going out, to a local burger joint....

Menu - The Burger Stand at Taos Ale House

Going to get the green chile cheeseburger. Current dh will probably get that too!

I have lots of cooked chicken and smoked pulled beef, so something with those ingredients tonight. Maybe quesadillas or tacos.

I fired up the Weber and grilled a smallish one pounder ribeye early this afternoon. Asparagus and half a slice of sourdough rounded it out. The kitchen has been cleaned and closed for a couple of hours now - I love having an early dinner.

I sliced up the meatiest part for dinner and will gently warm the rest of it for steak and eggs tomorrow morning.

A fried meal today.

We enjoyed fried green tomatoes and fried catfish, along with a side of steamed spinach. Washed it down with iced tea and had Italian cream birthday cake for dessert.
