Funky Friday Feast for Evening Meal 8/16/13

Our evenings have been rather cool. So I think I am going to make the large pan of mac and cheese tonight. I will take one corner of it and pass the rest to Spike to take home. I absolutely have to make sure I put those tomatoes in it. I usually break them up right in the can, but I am going to me adding a smaller can along with the big one, so I will put them in a large bowl first. Then I use the juice with the milk for the béchamel sauce. The melted cheese helps bring the sauce back to near white again.

Addie that sounds wonderful! If Spike doesn't want it all you can send some down here! I haven't thought about dinner yet tonight. I might do some of the pork filets I have in the freezer with rice pilaf. The other option is our version of sweet and sour chicken in the crockpot with rice.

The plan is smoked ribs on the Weber, shrimp and avocado salad with mozzarella balls and a cold beer.

Don't know yet. I'm heading out to the farm for the weekend to harvest cucumbers, beans, sweet corn, and whatever else needs picking. I have some leftover stir-fry pork, but am leaving that for the intern. I do have some chicken thighs I might take out with me. I'm not taking my computer, so I'll have to update y'all when I get back Sunday or Monday. Nice to have a live-in chicken keeper who is also a registered vet tech and has studied birds.

I took some walleye out of the freezer, but that doesn't mean anything because I'm also going to be out and about shortly and I've been craving another prime cut of beef since that NY strip I had last week. Plus that store has babybacks on sale.
So I'm keeping my options open. It will be something with leftover mac and cheese.

Before I can even begin though, I have a job to do. I keep my big pan in the sink and toss all the dirty silverware in it. Well, I am now out of clean silverware and I need the pan for the macaroni.

I'm thinking hot dog on the grill, beans, and macaroni salad.

Glenn's been reroofing the back of the house most of this week. That's no mean feat because the roof has a massive span.

At any rate his son, Kenneth, came by last light after his work and helped for several hours. We fed him, which is like filling a black hole.

Kenneth says he's coming to help again tonight so...I'm ready.

I put a pork roast in the crock-pot with what promises to be an awesome rub. The rub recipe began with several heads of roasted garlic. Well, nothing wrong with that.

We'll have Glenn's favorite baked/sliced potato dish as one side and some sort of green veggie as another. Just took a pan of cornmeal yeast rolls of of the oven, which will be just about right to sop up the juice from the roast. Lots of cold iced tea and more of the blueberry pie I made yesterday for dessert.

Bribing Kenneth with pie was pretty easy.

Sounds yummy Have you posted the recipe for the cornmeal yeast rolls? That sounds especially yummy. I way overdid making yeast rolls after I discovered how to do the dough in the bread machine last Thanksgiving, but this is different!

DH called earlier and his golf buddy is still out of town, which means we're going out to dinner. Last weekend was Mexican-inspired Tortilla West. I need to think of somewhere else to go this week. They do have those yummy margaritas, though.
