Feast of the Ass Dinner - 1/14/2019

The Feast of the Ass was a medieval, Christian feast observed on 14 January, celebrating the Flight into Egypt. It was celebrated primarily in France, as a by-product of the Feast of Fools celebrating the donkey-related stories in the Bible, in particular the donkey bearing the Holy Family into Egypt after Jesus's birth.

For the full story:


Not being Christian or French, I won't be participating. Tonight's dinner will be mussels with chorizo, green salad, and Dutch oven bread that's about to go into the oven.

I have scallops, Brussels sprouts, and bacon in the house. They're what's for supper, unless I end up making something else.

Got some giant (around 1.25-1.33 Lb. each) bone-in skin on chicken breasts on sale. I vacuum packed them and two will be our dinner tonight. I'm going to sous vide the chicken breasts and finish them in a skillet to crisp the skin. I'll also make stuffing and steamed green beans.

Roast chicken (in the oven), roasted cauliflower & broccoli, mashed potatoes and chicken pan gravy. (Pictures later if I have a chance to snap)

We are having a Trader Joe's Chicken Parmesan meal over pasta.

My wife would argue that every dinner with me is the Feast of the Ass Dinner, but that's a whole other story.

Korean Stone Bowl, with Brown rice, sauteed shiitake mushrooms, bean sprouts, Chinese Spinach and a bunch of other stuff. Home made Spring Rolls and steamed vegetable buns.

I roasted a small slab of beef back ribs with bbq sauce and steamed some broccoli.

I'll have dinner after Tyler gets picked up. It's been raining for 2 days, the yard is flooded, little guy had his snack and his homework is done....now I have to find something for him to do inside to work off some of his energy.
