Last Dinner in January - Sunday - 1-31-16

The mercury topped 50 this afternoon (and it's January 31 in northern New England!), so I fired up the grill (again) and made cheeseburgers, oven fries, and cole slaw. Last year at this time I gave up trying to shovel out the grill due to the heavy snowfalls. It's supposed to be even warmer tomorrow, so I'll be out on the bike. Runoff across the roads from melting snow it pretty much gone.

Leftover chicken chili and potato salad here.

We're having the old stand by, two brined thick pork chops done in a skillet and finished with a shallot/Dijon/wine/cream sauce. A little casserole of doctored up bread stuffing for the SC and roasted asparagus for us both.

Instead of asparagus tonight for the veggie, I forgot about the two fresh field artichokes the SC brought home yesterday. Gosh they were good, with the dip we like...(mayo/fresh lemon juice/dill weed/garlic)

I had leftover roasted chicken to use up, so I sautéed chopped onion, celery and bell peppers, made gravy in the pan with homemade chicken stock and made a side of Uncle Ben's rice and wild rice (a freebie from Kroger). Heated diced chicken in the gravy and served it with toasted yeast rolls.

Mmmm....fresh artichokes...sounds so good. They're not here quite yet.

Chicken thighs were on sale yesterday for .79/lb, so I bought 7 pounds. I vacuum sealed them in the food saver but left out a couple to roast for tonight's dinner. Sautéed some fresh asparagus on the side, and had a sliced mango and Fuji apple to round it out. Mint chocolate chip ice cream will follow.

They aren't in the store here yet Cheryl, but these were fresh out of the field with leaves still attached to the long stem. Gosh, they were so tender and delicious!

Great buy on the thighs!! Love that!!!

We had too much of a loaf of bread to finish as toast, etc, so I made a small casserole of "overnight" French toast. We had that with homemade apple sauce and a few breakfast sausages. The plate color may have been bland, but the flavors were really good. Just enough of the French toast for one breakfast tomorrow. Good thing I'm up way before Himself. :

I suppose you don't want me to tell you that the corner store has them for 49 cents/pound. *covers head with hands* I'll get a few packages for Himself, since he loves them, while I'll stock up tomorrow when I hit the store that is selling bone in/skin on breasts for 99 cents. I should not be adding things to my freezer, since I'm trying to empty it, but I just can not pass up deals like those!
