Saturday 3 January - what's for dinner?

Sadly, this is almost the last night of my holiday break. Back to work on Monday after 11 days off... Admittedly, however, I'm tired of the holiday by now and am ready to get back to some semblance of normalcy around here.

First course tonight is pork and plantain tamales with pico de gallo.

Dinner is paella with shrimp, clams, chorizo and chicken.

Flan for dessert.

We're having sazerac cocktails but not sure what the wine choice for the evening is.

What's for dinner at your table?


How can we sleep while our beds are burning???

Supper tonight will be fajitas, refried beans (homemade), and salad. We don't eat dessert very often, but I have some leftover strawberry sauce I made this week and we have vanilla ice cream.

Life is too short to eat processed, artificially-colored, chemically-preserved, genetically-modified food. Or maybe that IS why life's too short.

Last Saturday Night I forced myself, with a gentle nudge from the DW not eat my beloved Fried Catfish Etc. Rather we dined on BBQed Chicken from the grill...Tonight however --- It will be;

Bourbon --- Yet to be determinded........
Deep Fried, Cornmeal breaded Catfish Filets.....
Light, fluffy, crispy Hushpuppies....
Sweet Potato French Fries....
A bowl of Mustard Greens/Turnip Roots with plenty of pot-likker...
Chocolate Ice Cream for dessert --- Or maybe just a Coke Float later in the parlor while listening to the booming of a line of thunderstorms headed this way.....

Oops!! Was that a hushpuppy that fell into the pot-likker???

Tonight will be prime rib roast, oven roasted potatoes, the last yellow beans from our garden (WAAAA!), a salad as yet undecided, and dessert also undecided. This was going to be our NYD dinner but Bugs was sick so we had turkey soup instead.

Me alone again for dinner tonight so will just have whatever I can find in the fridge.

Lunch is becoming our main meal as DH settles into his afternoon shift. Today I am making him his new favourite. An omelet stuffed with some of the leftover tortiere filling (he can't eat the pastry but loves the meat mixture). Just a side salad with raspberry vinaigrette and some leftover molten chocolate cake with raspberry coulis for dessert.
Living gluten/dairy/sugar/fat/caffeine-free and loving it!
