Dinner Wednesday, 5-13-2015

I have a headache. Does anyone want to come over to my place and cook for me and Himself?


I have two options on the table. IF I feel better, I'll try a new recipe I saw in Cooking Light: Smoky Farro and Chickpea Soup. If this is getting made, I probably should start cooking farro soon. I don't have the pre-cooked the recipe calls for, so I need to make my own pre-cooked. Also, no Swiss chard, so I'll sub in spinach.

IF I bail on cooking, we have plenty of chicken from last night, and a piece of pork tenderloin from the night before. Some veggies leftover, too, but not enough for two. I'll only have to make a veggie or a salad.

What are you having tonight? I suggest you don't try the headache.

Refreshingly cold today so I baked a ham that I bought on special a couple of weeks ago. I broke it down and packaged some for the freezer, the bone is simmering on the back of the stove.

So tonight is ham, cauliflower and cabbage salad.

Made a deep dive into the freezer to pull out some German style hot dogs and some hot dog chili. Put together some angel hair coleslaw. Grated some cheddar. Oh, I called a lady about a pug puppy!

The new Kroger opened today. Had to stop and check it out. Snagged some deals. Got 2 rotisserie chickens. We'll eat one tonight and I'll debone the other for another meal later. Have some red potato salad to go with it.

Our date night just got postponed to Friday so dinner plans are suddenly up in the air.

I have plenty of romaine and I bought (!) a bottle of organic Caesar dressing the other day. It tastes sweet as in sugary, not sure it should do that. I have to find my magnifying glass to read the ingredient label; and other fixin's for a salad. Maybe I will sizzle up a little seasoned ground beef and make a taco Caesar salad and douse it with enough salsa to kill the odd dressing effect.

We had burgers on the grill tonight. I had mine with provolone cheese, genoa salami, bacon, pickled jalape˝os, onion, tomato and mayonnaise on a deli bun. It was outstanding!

My daughter and grandson came by late this afternoon and we had a spread of all kinds of things, so I'm calling that dinner. We had a sandwich tray of tuna salad, and ham and cheese, with sides of deviled eggs, various pickles and olives, a bowl of SunChips , watermelon, mango, and strawberry ice cream for dessert.

I'll nibble on the leftovers this evening.

A rerun from last week, but it was soooo good. Neighbor dropped by another bunch of morels . I sauteed some them in (a lot of) butter, with some onion and (a lot of) garlic. Finished off with a little white wine, then cream and a handful of parmesan. All tossed with some rotini and leftover steamed asparagus.

Dinner change: I cooked a good size potato and mashed it. Made hamburger and onion gravy to top it. Salad with romaine, halved baby tomatoes, cukes, a little onion, kalamata olives, parm and a healthy sqweeze of lemon juice added to the Caesar dressing.

I had two of those sandwiches that I brought home from the Danish Club luncheon. One leverpostej (Danish liver pate) and one rullep°lse (Danish rolled sausage). They were yummers. Now I'm munching some of the leftover Indian food from my birthday.
