Dinner Wednesday, 2-8-2017 ~ What's your mid-week tummy tickler?

I made LOTS of soup. We have our choice between the Cuban black bean and ham or Creamy chicken and wild rice. Himself really likes the black bean (it IS good ) and I'll be perfectly happy with the chicken. I might make us small salads so there an appearance of "healthy".

What will you plop on a plate today?

Kayelle inspired me yesterday, so I dug out a jar of TJ's Thai Green Curry sauce, and will pound the heck out of a Dolly Parton chicken breast. Fry it up and throw the sauce on it. Carrots, celery, and Lipton onion dip to go along.

Snow yesterday and a blizzard tomorrow but temps in the 50s today so I'm grilling some country style pork ribs and zucchini. Maybe some potatoes too.

Cuban Black Bean Soup, that sounds interesting.
Everyone's dinner choices sound great!
I had sub-contractors coming and going again today,
so in between the chaos, I made a big ole' pot of
my Quick Gumbo, that I'll serve with some rice

This dish is loaded with all kinds of veggies,
but ssshhh don't tell DH, he claims to dislike
several types of vegetables, that he eats on
a regular basis

We did a version of "Fluke Poke" (Feb. 2017 BA Mag) subbing Hog fish for the fluke.

I found a container in the freezer of a couple of Mexican stuffed bell peppers. I'll cook those and we'll have them with the rest of the guacamole from last night's quesadillas. Thinking I might make a quick salad with garden greens and lime-cilantro vinaigrette.

The rectangular things are phyllo dough crispies with sesame seeds. I wanted a little crispy something to go with the poke.
