Sat. dinner..4/16/16

I'm doing a beer butt chicken tonight with a spud for the SC and glorified salads for both of us.

What's going on at your house?

Sounds good, Kayelle! It's grilling weather here today, too! I'm going to make grilled shrimp tacos with spicy jicama-cabbage-red onion slaw.

We are having friends/neighbors over. I am fixing a baked smoked ham, cheesy mashed potatoes with green chiles, and green beans. They are bring a raspberry chocolate torte.


It is very hard to find good hams here, so I bought three around Easter and put two of them in the freezer. This is the first one out of the freezer.

Trying a new recipe tonight. A Thai recipe called Pad See Yew. It's a shrimp and rice stick noodle dish with miso and bok choy.

I've got a chicken in the roaster, and Rina's got her sauteed zucchini and yellow squash happening, and there are sweet potatoes in the oven.

I made the butter and brown sugar and cinnamon mix for the taters, and I'm drooling!

I better go, or I'll short out my laptop with drool. LOL!

Great sounding dinners!
I had a cucumber, tomato, red onion, and feta salad over spinach. Mixed up a quick dressing of olive oil, vinegar, and Penzey's Greek seasoning. A few Triscuits on the side for some salt and crunch.

I found a frozen turkey loin roast in the deep freeze, and that will be one more item from my How Am I Going To Use Up All This Food?!
I'll roast some yukon gold potatoes and fresh asparagus and call that dinner.

Thanksgiving in April. I had a nice bone in turkey breast. I rubbed it in butter, fresh garlic, salt, pepper and seared it in the cast iron skillet and then baked it for an hour in the cast iron in the stove.

Served with Stove Top instant stuffing, fresh made mashed potatoes, jarred gravy, and green beans.

I got this recipe from the F&W website. It is really salty and inedible. We picked out the shrimp and bok choy and made that the meal.

Actually GG, I have better luck with it in a 400 degree oven. I made up my own spice mix for it with herbs de Provence, kosher salt and a tiny bit of my new powdered vinegar for a little zing. Stuffed some thyme sprigs under the skin too and I'm using wine tonight instead of beer.

Those shrimp tacos on the grill sound fabulous!!

Andy, what a shame! I've dared to take a chance with a new recipe with company. Glad that wasn't your case!

Great sounding dinners tonight folks!
