Natn'l Vanilla Milkshake Day~6/20/2019~What's For Dinner

I LOVE Vanilla Ice Cream, therefore I really like Vanilla Shakes.
HEH! I've a tub in the deep freeze

Poor Husband (I'm still calling him this) asked for this again,
grown-up kids meal

I'll crisp-up some sliced Hot Dogs and serve it with
Mac`N Cheese and Peas&Carrots

Oh and a Vanilla Milkshake for dessert

What's for dinner at your place?

I breaded only three of the six pork chops in the package, so I'll pan fry the last of them with shallots and apples (and Calvados brandy) tonight. We have potatoes from Sunday, along with plenty of roasted carrots, but I might steam up some broccoli just for the color. Probably passing on salads so that we'll have room for strawberries later tonight - with vanilla ice cream. IMO it's best used over fruit or dessert. I'd rather have a hot fudge milk shake.

Probably leftovers. I've felt under the weather all day and ate only a cup of coffee and a bowl of cereal. Things seem to be looking up so I may eat the leftovers from yesterday's lunch-lobster mac and cheese.

It's been years since I've done a pot roast and I'm following this recipe today https://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/...recipe-1922380
adding a saved parm. rind to the liquid, as suggested by GG at the recent pot roast thread. It's sure smelling good on this June Gloom day.

Andy, what starch do you serve it with? I'm thinking Polenta would be good. BTW, hope you're feeling better.

I tend to serve my pot roasts with mashed potatoes. They pair well with all the delicious gravy.

And how's SC? He hasn't been around DC much lately

I've served it with both polenta and egg noodles. It's one of our favorites, too.

We still have leftovers. Last night we ordered takeout from the Middle Eastern place downtown and have some left, and we have smoked pork shoulder and homemade burger buns from Sunday, as well as assorted bits and pieces. I'll just put together a couple plates till there's enough.
