Monday dinner 12/18/17

Anybody cooking besides me?

We recently had one of the best sandwiches I ever ate, so Chef John is helping me make them tonight. Since I made the duck liver pate' and pan roasted his recipe for the pork, it's one of the most labor intensive sandwiches I've ever made. I'll report after dinner.
Who has had a delicious Banh Mi sandwich?

I'm not cooking (much) but we're eating! I'm thawing and heating leftover posole from a couple weeks ago and will make a cheese quesadilla for me to go alongside. DH wants a meatloaf sandwich from last night's dinner to go with his

Anyplace where people argue about food is a good place.

We had a little treat. Went to the big Asian market Sunday and they had geoducks, so a crudo, fried clam belly strips with a mayo, sriracha, lime juice sauce, and a Thai noodle salad. Yes, I ate every single bit of clam on my plate, but didn't make it thru the noodle salad.

We took my Mother Christmas shopping at our nearest Outlet Mall, about a 45 minute drive South --- very nice, but alot of empty store fronts, sad.

We all decided that we were hungry from all that walking and went to one DH and my favorite little joints that's on the way back home from there.

And I tried their Pulled Pork Sandwich, BBQ Sauce on the side please, and house-made Potatoes Chip,
oh and a pint of my new favorite draft beer.

We're all still full, so there'll be no cooking tonight!

It was sandwich Monday here. I had some hoagie rolls, Black Forrest ham, hard salami and white American cheese in the fridge. Plus some lettuce, mayo and fresh cracked pepper. Simple, but tasty.
