This is cook ahead day! We've made Cuban chicken corn pie, chicken and andouille gumbo and homemade white corn tortillas. The first two are for dinners next week and the tortillas are for tonight. The condiments are, guac, pickled red onions and pico de gallo. Some chicken and Mexican chorizo are the fillings.

I've had a ribeye dry brining for several hours now I should get around to doing something with. I also bought two small lobster tails today that I will be tossing on the grill with the ribeye. Broccoli and a spud will round things out.

I did a pork and rice dish that mom used to make for me. I love it, Ken tolerates it. LOL. I ate way too much and now I'm trying to digest it all. Oof.

Got some more Copper River Salmon today, so it's going on the grill soon with some asparagus basted with garlic EVOO. Some baby reds and Caprese salad will round out the meal. I think DH plans on making a rhubarb crisp to be served with vanilla ice cream.

I defrosted the freezer today. We snacked for supper since no one was really hungry. I made some dip for the chips and DH topped it off with a bowl of cereal.

Alix, pork and rice recipe? Lay it on me. I've got some pork loin trimmings in the freezer. I was looking for a pork and rice dish.
