Dinner, Thursday 7/23/15

I am fixing to make some pesto,and panko baked tilapia with a cucumber caprese salad. And I am betting some pesto ends up in the salad too .

What are you making?

I'll be grilling some Chinese sausages and making a salad for dinner tonight.

I'm on my own tonight. I have no idea what I'll eat.

I had a steamed artichoke with lemon butter for dipping, and the rest of the shrimp from yesterday's Shrimp Egg Foo Young. I sautéed the shrimp with the shell on in a cast iron skillet with olive oil and garlic. Yum.

I made six Mexican-inspired stuffed bell peppers with homemade salsa today - four for the freezer and two for tonight's dinner. I also have Mexican rice simmering on the stove with about a half cup of the leftover pepper filling. No rice in the filling itself.

I made us a glorified pasta salad with everything in it that needed using.

The big news is I experimented with a tri tip roast in the oven treating it like my favorite recipe for prime rib. I brought it to room temp. and rubbed it with a combo of soy sauce, seasonings and oil. Then I rolled the triangle of meat into a ball and secured it with silicone bands. I preheated the oven to 500 degrees and roasted the 3 lb. ball of meat for 15 minutes and turned the oven off, and left it with the door closed for 2 hrs. When it was sliced, it was perfectly rare and beautifully crusty. I'll sure be doing that again.

The magic formula is 5 min. per lb. at 500 degrees.

We spent the day, in Glenn's terminology, "doctoring." Earlyish and long day, so I put a beef roast in the crock-pot. We had that, along with mashed potatoes and spinach and iced tea. Too full and tired to have dessert.

Boy, did that turn out good! Tomatoes, garlic and bell, jalapeño, cubanelle and Fresno peppers from the garden in either the salsa or the filling.
