It's Non-Taco-Tuesday Here ~ 1/29/19


My plan was to make Ground Beef Tacos tonight,
but when I went looking for that leftover 1/2lb
of cooked Hamburger meat, I can't find the dang thing!

Oh well.
This past weekend I went deep freezer diving and came
back up with several "tidbits", odds and ends of this and that...

So this entire week will be dinners made up of those things.

Tonight, DH will be having the singular Costco Chicken Cordon Bleu left
with fresh Green Beans (I only have a single serving left)
and roasted potatoes

While I will be eating a Prime Rib Hash
I found the leftovers from the night we went out to eat,
like what? a month ago? Anyways, DH does not care for
any sort of Hash (he really does, but I don't have enough for two)

What are you going to put on your Dinner Table?

Country captain chicken had some positive comments, so I'll make it for the first time tonight. According to Southern Living, "Country Captain Chicken has been a staple of Junior League cookbooks in the Southeast since at least the 1950s and is found in various forms in cookbooks from as far back as the 19th century." So it's got to be at least as good as things like ambrosia salad, casseroles made with a can of soup, etc. I guess I'll find out. Broc on the side.

Well I was going to make pizza but everyone wanted calzones again. So repeat calzones for dinner.

My younger daughter and I are making picadillo empanadas for dinner tonight. Broiled zucchini for a veggie.

I'm going to a class to make a charcuterie board at a local butcher shop tonight. I'm going to have a salad before I go, since tastings of their housemade charcuterie is part of the class.

I'll come home with something like this.

We're having tacos! I have a number of packages of pulled meats in the freezer. We'll have pork tonight. Yellow rice and black beans for sides. Ooo, and I have time right now to make quick pickled onions before we leave to run errands. See ya!

I'll be doing taco's tonight too. For once they sound good on Tuesday.

TS, I hope you like the Country Captain Chicken too. I used golden raisins in ours. Looking forward to what you think.
