July 13, 2014....What's for dinner?

Just took some pulled pork out of the freezer. I'm thinking I'll make a soft shell taco with a whole wheat tortilla, and homemade salsa. Another 'no-cook' evening.

What's everyone else having?

beef stew with grocery store in-house made ww tortillas. This grocery makes 6000 tortillas a day, same number as the population of this town

I'm making dun dun (dan dan) noodles tonight with pork, mushrooms, sugar snap peas and scallions because those are the veggies I have.

I cheated (a bit) but added my own freshness/flavour.

I had prepacked mussels in a red pepper sauce. However, I started off with simmering some celery (and their leaves) in some asparagus stock (I had leftover) with a bunch of chopped flat leaf parsley. After they were suitably infused, I added the pack of mussels with their sauce and had it with a ciabatta roll (crusted up again by heating over a low grill). Very quick!

This week our Kroger grocery had big racks of pork ribs on special so how could I resist? I didn't and bought one of the smallest ones, which is still humongous. Glenn will cook those suckers on the grill outside and slather on some of our homemade barbecue sauce. I can almost taste them already.

We'll have cucumber salad made with cucumbers from our garden, along with a big bowl of mixed grape/cherry/pear tomatoes. I might take a container of baked beans out of the freezer but, since the ribs are so big and meaty, I probably shouldn't. I'll see how hungry Glenn is before I defrost them. Iced tea to wash it all down and homemade blueberry pie with whipped cream for dessert.

Yep, that should about do it on this hot, hot and humid Sunday in Kentucky.

I'm having Pho--- a Vietnam soup. I'd shopped at the Asian market and they sell all the stuff that goes into it, pre-packaged, PLUS a tub of the broth. I'm going to add more thinly sliced meat because they give a skimpy amount of the meat. Maybe add more of the cellophane noodles too.

I can hardly wait.

We decided to have an easy dinner night and make beef tacos. I'll do some shopping tomorrow and come up with something more interesting

Papa Murphy's is doing the assembly, to which I'll add some pepperoni, black olives, and extra cheese. Love their Thin Crust Delite crust.

We are having grilled sockeye salmon with prosciutto-wrapped asparagus (also grilled), corn on the cob and salad.

Dessert is fresh fruit salad.
