Monday, 8-14-2017, what's for din-din?

We had mussels with ouzo for an appy. I liked them better than Carrabas's mussels. Main was braised lamb shanks with carrots, celery, and potatoes.

ohhh, medtran - now I have to go buy mussels! and I wouldn't mind that recipe with ouzo!

Had the main at around 1 or 2 as my son was passing thru on his way home. I did the grocer's own Herb Sausages on the grill with red peppers & onions. Also grilled the pannini breads. Made a Tabouleh salad (garden parsley and mint) with a couple of deviled eggs.

Was delish and thank goodness my son liked the salad and took more than half with him - I would have been eating it for days. Now I have the perfect amount for the next couple of days before I get sick of it..

sorry, no pics - but looked good!

oh oh, deja vu, did I not post this yesterday too? oh dear... sorry.

We'll finish the last of the crispy potatoes, along with more fresh sliced tomatoes and my version of KFC, iced tea and more of the chocolate chip cookies.

Carnitas are cooking in the Instant Pot. Dinner should be ready in 20-25 minutes. Pictures to follow if I remember to snap. LOL

Plain old cheeseburgers. If, that is, the hamburger thaws. If it doesn't thaw by 7, then I'm heading to Burger King again.

Jeannie said, "We need a big salad." I agreed as long as we had pizza as a side.. Both were good...

Those look great!

The little grocery store down the street had a sale on whole beef tenderloins for $8/lb. I picked up two. I've been trying to figure out what to serve as the main course for the next get together of our dinner club, so I carved two Chateaubriand style cuts out of the tenderloins and stuck them in the freezer (along with a few steaks). Problem solved. When all was said and done, I had some scrap tail pieces left over, so I fastened them together with a strip of bacon and called it dinner.

I'm still amazed at times with what I find in that little store. This is a rural town of 3,500 people, and they easily had a dozen tenderloins in that meat case. Which leaves me wondering who buys these things. I'm inclined to believe that if I show up there in a couple of days, what's left will be marked down even further.
