Dinner Wednesday, 2-11-2015 ~ Winners' Wednesday

I wonder what the chances are that Cheryl and I will post today's thread at the same time again...

Even if you're eating a fast food burger, you're a winner in my book. Now your meal? Probably not so much.

After last night's recipe fail, I was almost hesitant to try another new recipe. Oh My, did I find a winner tonight! Crock pot simple, few ingredients. This one will be finding its way to a bowl in our house regularly: Tiny French Beans with Smoked Sausage.

I feel like a winner too. No Cooking, no dishes to do and best of all, Dinner was ready on the spot. Neighborhood church had its annual winter dinner.

Very good baked ham carved off the bone, homemade Svedish meatballs, Creamy scalloped potatoes. Canned green beans and plain canned sweet potatoes. I spooned some creamy sauce over the sweets otherwise they were a bit dry. For dessert there was cherry pie. They hand make their pie crusts, using some old Gramma's recipe. it is crisp and very flaky. One person at our table said she made pie crusts all day yesterday. The filling they use is pitted tart canned cherries, not pre-made pie filling, I think they must cook it up or somehow it gets thicker and then poured into the crust, maybe even finished as needed just before serving, because even the bottom of the pastry is still crisp. Different, good, and the pastry as I say is top notch.

Cooking on the grill tonight. It's too dang hot for this time of year, in the 80's and the Santa Ana winds blowing like a blow torch. Wish I could blow just some of this summer weather to those of you so cold and snowed in.
Anyway, I'll be doing a basket of marinated veggies and shrimps on the barby.

LOL. Pretty close - I was going to start a dinner thread and got smart this time and looked to see who was online and posting a dinner thread before I hit submit.

Not only that, I did have a fast food burger and fries late this afternoon from Burger King. Now I remember why I rarely have fast food.

Sounds good, CG. Saved it. :-)

2 kinds of burritos, both with green rice and chiuaua and queso fresco cheese. One filling was the rest of the lime, cilantro, garlic marinated grilled chicken from the freezer plus sauteed onion, red bell, jalapeno. The other was a copycat attempt from a local Mexi restaurant of roasted pablanos, corn, onion and sour cream, a vegetarian recipe. I think next time I'll use crema but I got pretty darn close.

I really loved the restaurant when they first opened but then the 'good' part of their fillings started to be replaced with cheap fillers like rice, which is why I decided to attempt the copycat.
