First Day of Spring Dinner - 3/20/2017

To celebrate the first day of spring, along with shoveling the snow off the patio to have access to my grill, we're doing burgers on the grill and oven fries.

We had Deandine's red beans chili and Pawmaw's corn mush ( slightly modified) and purple nachos.

Deandine was foodie friend of mine and she gave me this recipe with the mush, along time ago. I just found it few days ago and went a head and made it. Normally it has very few red beans in it, I added more and the corn mush used to be a smooth corn pure with double the amount of cheddar to corn, I changed it to half amount of cheese to the corn ratio, otherwise it just a weird cheese sauce and only pureed half the corn. The purple nachos, just happened to be on A WOW this is new offer, so I grab it. Every one enjoyed this dinner and it made me miss sweet Dindin as we called her.

For the love of Cheese!

Not sure at this point. SO was up way too early with some kind of stomach/intestinal bug and is feeling very "drained". I'll just have something simple.

I am going to cut up some beef and cook it in a mesquite envelope mix I got at the store. Then I'm going to put it it in tortillas with cheese and sour cream. That will be supper tonight.

Florida lobster with Cajun butter and Cajun rice ala Paul Prudhomme's recipe. The butter has the trinity plus a carrot, various spices, including cayenne, fresh basil and oregano. We're saving the rest of the butter for grilled shrimp later on.

Med, I've been dreaming of Lobster lately! Saw some "previously frozen" tiny little tails at the green grocer for $9.99 each...not worth it.

Just got home from taking care of the grands' all day. Fun day. I'm going to griddle a deli ham and cheese sandwich shortly and have something else, maybe yogurt or just a banana.

I have a bunch of "gottause" veggies so I'm doing a stir fry Crack Slaw with various additions.

I had a bun-less grilled cheeseburger with avocado, tomato, and bacon. Cottage cheese on the side. Sort of a take on the old 1970s "diet platter" I suppose.
