Lunar Eclipse Dinner - 2/10/2017

Tonight's dinner is a one skillet Greek inspired shrimp dish - shrimp, green pepper, onions, tomatoes, rice, and feta. Green salad on the side.

Here's the skinny on the eclipse:

We've gotten a big bunch of upper level cloud cover this afternoon, so I'm thinkin' we won't be able to see anything at all tonight, boo hiss!

As to our supper, I've got some Sweet Italian Sausage I think I'll roast along with some Sweet Red Bell Peppers and Onions, tossed in Olive Oil and loads of garlic. Serve everything over some sort of pasta... ooh! I know, I still have some homemade Cheese Raviolis in the deep freeze... there ya go!

Clear skies here, we'll see what we can see this evening.

Before that I'm going to turn out a small pan of chicken enchiladas with canned red sauce and refried beans.

Clear here, too. All my information says the full moon isn't until tomorrow night but I could be wrong. Regardless, for dinner tonight...

We're having something called Pork Chops California, which is a recipe I've had since my children were toddlers. Pork chops browned, topped with sliced fresh lemons, then braised in a mixture of water, catsup and brown sugar. Sounds weird but soooo good.

Sides will include mac and cheese and steamed and buttered Italian green beans. Iced tea to wash it down and a couple of Kroger chocolate chunk cookies.

Roasted Cornish Hens, roasted potatoes and cauliflower, plus roasted onions and carrots, with a pan sauce. This Karen's plate, she skipped the onions.

If you're gonna make a Key Lime pie, you have to use real Key Limes!

I seasoned a London Broil roast (cut against the grain) with some salt/pepper and then seared both pieces on all 4 sides in the cast iron skillet with some olive oil. Then I took a knife and make some pockets for garlic. Then I finished it off in the crockpot for 8 hours with some carrots, peppercinis, butter, and seasonings. Served with mashed potatoes and some gravy.

Katie, I also have been doing those California pork chops as long as I can remember.
I've always just topped each chop with a thin slice of onion, 1 tbs. brown sugar, 1 tbs catsup and a thin slice of lemon. Bake. Yumm.

Tonight we're having a chicken thighs casserole with frozen artichoke hearts, fresh asparagus in a creamy wine blue cheese sauce.
Woo Hoo.....the asparagus was 1.49 lb !!
