Dinner Wednesday the 13th

Making a new recipe today. Poule ala creme. I got the recipe from the new Jacques Pepin cooking show, Heart and Soul. Great show with his daughter and granddaughter.

As we all know, some dishes are better the next day. I made a lobster salad yesterday, which will be dinner tonight. I am going to make a Chicken and tasso jambalaya for tomorrows dinner. Getting down to the last of the homemade tasso and andouille. Maybe time for some curing, sausage making and smoking.

I'll be doing a stir fry with beef/sugar snap peas/mushrooms using the Chinese Velveting technique for the thinly sliced beef sirloin. It will be over Jasmine rice for him, and spinach for me.

Mostly I am hungry for a green salad with some sliced cukes,, radish and onion and tomatoes on it. Maybe some sliced avocado if they have already ripe ones. I have none of these, so a trip to the store is in short order. Otherwise, I am not too hungry.

We're having Mexican Mystery Meat I found a chunk of meat in the freezer yesterday with no identification of what it is. The freezer bag was partially opened so I decided to go ahead and thaw and cook it today. I'm sure it's either pork shoulder or a chuck roast. I'm going to cook it in the Instant Pot with lard, Mexican seasonings and a quick jalapeno-tomatillo sauce and make chile verde. I'll probably make tacos with it with corn tortillas, Monterey Jack cheese, sliced avocado and pickled red onions.
Anyplace where people argue about food is a good place.

Fresh swordfish on the grill, baked potatoes, and sauteed red bell pepper and pea pods.

I did a variation of a wrap i.e. instead of bread I used fresh egg lasagna (rolled up)!

I spread the cooked lasagna sheets with mayo, placed some ham on it, then cooked asparagus spears and rolled it up. Interesting!

Lots of scope for variations e.g. omelette replacing the ham with grated cheese and sun dried tomatoes would be good. Or spread with pesto then fried chicken strips and roasted veg.

(I tend to find the normal wrap a bit like eating thin cardboard).

Had a massive steak and some turnip greens.

Ok. I only ate about a third of the steak.
