Monday dinner, 3/21/16

I've been cooking Kalua Pork (shoulder, Hawaiian seasoned salt, liquid smoke) in my Nessco Roaster, low and slow with no liquid. It makes it's own.
The sides will be jasmine rice for the SC, wilted spinach for me, and saute' of slender asparagus with red bell pepper and mushrooms. We'll also have coleslaw.

What's cookin' at your house?

Yum! K, great minds think alike! I just went today out on my quarterly trek to my favorite Asian Market to get me some Pork Butt (it's WAY cheaper than any where else that I've found `round these parts). DH is doing our taxes tomorrow, so I figure I'll make a BIG batch of Kalua Pig and divvy it up for the deep freeze

But as for tonight's repast,

I NEEDED me some grilled meats!
Here we have B/S Chicken Thighs marinaded all day in Mr. Yoshida's sauce, mmm, I LOVE this stuff!
Baby Bok Choy and steamed white rice, yes, I gave into that as well!

Mmm...looks wonderful, Rocklobster!

kgirl, congrats on your new grill! I really like Yoshida's too - your dinner looks fabulous.

I fired up the Weber and grilled a few chicken thighs this afternoon. The last scoop of potato salad and a small green salad were the sides. The two leftover chicken thighs will probably turn into chicken salad tomorrow.

I'm now craving kalua pork...

We had a Mediterranean-ish supper tonight. Greek salads to start, followed by a trip south to the other side of the Sea. The entree was my version of Penzeys' "North African-Style Chicken" on a bed of Israeli couscous, with a side of steamed broccoli. Each time I've made it I've thought that it could use just a little more of the spices. Kinda overdid it tonight. I wish I had some ice cream in this house...

K girl! Yep, there's only so long one can go without grilling.That's the ideal set up for now, and you can take it on road trips! By the way, how are the new house plans going?

S&P, that looks really yummy!

I grilled a steak for TB with sauteed mushrooms and onions, baby red potatoes and sliced tomatoes and cucumbers.

I sliced up a small amount of steak into my large Caesar salad and had some mushrooms on the side.
