I just made a big pot of chili. I'm thinking of making corn bread to go with it. Cool weather got me hungry for it.

Lovely dinners all!
We had unexpected guests, had to feed 8 people. I made smoked pork spare ribs, boerewors (farmers sausage), summer squash, zucchini and french beans with garlic and chilli butter, glazed carrots and masala potato salad.
Everyone had seconds, so it must have been edible lol!

I'm thinking that by the time the late game is on (or the World Series, whichever I watch) I just might be hungry again after hitting it hard earlier today on steak sammies and popcorn, so I'm planning on roasting the two leftover prime rib bones from last night to pick on and cooking some jasmine rice with peas. Nice and easy. Everything will cook itself.

Reading this topic it makes me feel good to know that we are of a like mind.

I got on an international kick yesterday with lamburger patties plus typical Greek yogurt sauce (yogurt, chopped cucumber, minced green onions, garlic powder, salt, cumin) served with lettuce stuffed into pita pockets. While shopping for ingredients I succumbed to impulse buying and got the fixings for lox, cream cheese & onions on an everything toasted bagel for breakfast this morning. (It looks like tomorrow's breakfast too, until we run out of lox.)

Today I'm struck with craving Japanese food so I went on a food spree and bought ingredients for tuna sashimi, California roll, spicy tuna roll, and shrimp if I'm still hungry (not likely). If I go the round with the shrimp I can make some tempura and I've got plenty of vegetables for mixed tempura.

At present I'm sipping a Margarita and the sushi rice is done, I'm about ready to get out the tuna and start slicing the cucumber for the CA roll. I'm excited about tonight's dinner since I haven't made sushi/sashimi in at least 2 years.

I bought one of Costco's beautiful boneless legs of lamb. It's too big a piece of meat for us, so I took it out of the elastic netting and sliced it in half length wise to freeze it for another time, returning the half to be frozen back into the netting. The other half I used my handy dandy silicone bands to hold it together in the stove top smoker I'll be using on the grill. We like our lamb med. rare so I'll also add some fresh asparagus bundles in the smoker, and all should be done around the same time. I'll do some onion/parsley orzo to finish the meal.
The lamb is seasoned with lots of fresh chopped mint and garlic. I don't like traditional Rosemary.

I'm sure keeping all you East Coasters in my thoughts....hang tight and stay safe!
