Mar. 10, 2019 - Mario Day Dinner

https://nationaldaycalendar.com/nati...-day-march-10/

I won't be playing Nintendo, but I'll be celebrating National Meatball Day a day late. Greek seasoned meatballs, served over orzo with tzatziki, green salad on the side.

That sounds really good. Maybe I'll make some kind of meatballs, too.

I am planning to make corned beef. But who knows; plans can change.

I've been waiting a while for this day to come. This morning SC finally found some beautiful big Oxtails, and although they were still $6 lb. they all have lots of meat on the bone.

With the help of Souschef, we'll be having Luckytrim's Oxtail Stew tonight made with these beauties..

Those are beauties, Kayelle. Mom used to make oxtails often, and I loved them. I never bothered making them, though, since Himself wasn't familiar with them and the price was no longer right.


I'm baking potatoes and making "stuffed" potatoes with ham, broccoli, and cheddar cheese. A bit of sour cream on top, too. Can't wait. Haven't had these in a while...and they're so simple to make!

SO and I will be making another pan of spanakopita for tonight's dinner. I'll make the filling. She has the patience to handle the filo. One veggie or another will round out the meal.

Either green chile chicken stew, or beef vegetable soup. I've made garlic croutons for which ever. I am boiling up a 3 pound chunk of corned beef, and have all the fixings for reubens.....so that's an option too!

Talking National Middle Name Pride Day! 3/10/2019

Today is also National Middle Name Pride Day!

My middle name is:

Kapualeipunahelepiliohana

The favorite flower lei that brings the family together

For Sunday Supper, we're going off our regular Pasta-Italian-Inspired trend and I'm going to make Hamburger Steak with Steamed Rice Gravy and Steamed fresh Green Beans.

Beautiful middle name Kgirl ! My middle name is Mary, only because the priest said he wouldn't baptize me without a "proper " Christian name, so my Baptist Mom said, "well then, you can call her Mary". She was a hoot.



Beautiful dinner there too!!

Oh, Andy! *swoon*


First I stuff the potatoes, and then we stuff our faces. Still waiting for dinner to settle before we move on to strawberry shortcakes.

Wow! Everyone outdid themselves with the fabulous looking dinners!

Kgirl....I love your middle name and it's meaning, and tried several times to pronounce it. Your dinner looks wonderful with all that rich gravy.

Andy...your spanakopita looks mouth watering.

Kay...I may have to check out oxtails. I haven't really looked for them before, but it brings back memories of my mama's stew.

MsM....I'm looking forward to a corned beef dinner this time of year. Will get one at the market in a few days, along with the fixin's. Thank you for the reminder, and the yummy looking pic.

CG...that stuffed potato dish...OMGosh. Looks lovely, and that's one of my go-to meals, because I can use up a lot of 'stuff' with that dish!

I had a tray of various goodies this afternoon. Ham, assorted cheeses, olives and pickles, crackers, strawberries, and a sliced apple. I'll have the chocolate drumstick ice cream cone I bought at the mini mart today for dessert, a little later.

Oxtail Stew

Here's the end of the story. I remember now why I love those sucking off the bone tender oxtails so much, SC has a new taste treat, and we have a freezer casserole put away for another meal. It was a day well spent.

I finally made a roast chicken. I swear, I thought the thing would never thaw. It was in the fridge 3 days. Then old smart me watched the video recipe (salt roasted chicken) and put it in the oven for the same time. Only problem is, the video was using a 4 pound chicken and mine was 6 pounds. So back in the oven it went. I just finished eating an hour ago. But it was good and the skin is so crispy and delicious.

Tomorrow: chicken sandwiches.
