Do you hear the dinner bell ring- Saturday May 10 2014

Well I do. Love to hear the sound of that triangle beating on the back porch at the old dude ranch or the tinkle of silver at the dining room table summoning for dinner. What's cooking in the kitchen is more important.

I made white bean and tuna salad earlier today so it's flavors have been shaking hands with each other most of the afternoon. I tasted it and said, man, this is good enough to share. Then I looked at the bottom of the recipe and Voila'. It's one of Rock Lobster's recipes.

My change ups. Poached celery, carrot and green beans (added) in chix broth earlier in the day so they are chewable for me. Sprinkled in some fresh rosemary, thyme and dried marjoram in the dressing. Doubled up on parsley. Omitted sweet peppers, used a thin sliced Serrano chile and Kalamata and green olives. I even have capers on hand.

There is sliced cukes and sliced baby tomatoes on the side, with extra salad dressing to drizzle. Oven toasted garlic sour dough and a handful of frozen grapes in ice tea. Pretty Easy Saturday Feast.

That sounds tasty.
I'm going to grill some chicken wings and potatoes. I'm hoping my lettuce is still good so I can have an iceberg lettuce and Vidalia onion salad afterwards.

Give us this day our daily bacon.

I'm going to experiment with the pressure cooker. I'm going to try combining beef short ribs with teriyaki bbq sauce, a little beef broth to make sure I have enough liquid. To the broth I'll add a dollop of hoisin with some fresh ginger and garlic. Ramen cole slaw on the side.

I have some breaded chicken breasts in the oven. I'll make up some brown rice and salads to go with it.
I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

We were going to grill some chicken; however, TB came home with a cold last night from work and has been sleeping all day. I cut up the breasts and made chicken soup instead. Hopefully he will feel like having it when he wakes up.

I am going to have the last of the Chinese food from going out with my in-laws.

I worked on salads when I got home from the grocery store. Made Himself's completely, added some lettuce to a half-size Panera Cobb salad with avocado for me. It was half of my free pick-two offer I earned last month. All for just buying the bread we eat, plus a piece or two of bakery. Love their bear claws. Himself finished up the last of the leftovers. There was just a bit of roast beef in gravy, which he put over a slice of rye bread. I had my half-portion of tortellini Alfredo, the second pick-two item. No leftovers left!

It's amazing the number of DC members/mods that aren't eating tonight.
I'm flabergasted.
They must be saving their posts for later...

We had leftovers, too. Not very interesting :-)
