Saturday 5/21 What's Cooking?

The freezer... Iíve really gotten ahead of myself. It is JAM packed with entrees, stocks, raw meats. Iíve really got to get control of it.

Iíll start by making chicken soup using the veggies, all the stock/broth. Iíll make it cream of chicken soup to use up the half & half I bought for the oyster stew. (The last bowl for breakfast this morning; that was a real treat!)

Iíll have to update my freezer list too. Hopefully, I can get at least the freezer door cleared out (somewhat) so I can stand up the frozen baggies of stuff, like Ĺ can of salmon and juices, pimentosÖ

Iím sure there are a few containers where I can pop out the frozen whatever, and put in a zip bag so I can put these in the freezer door too.

I may as well get totally obsessive/compulsive and write down names and dates on the bags, as well.

I still have pimento cheese, and salmon salad (that came out real well) for sandwiches.

What's going on in your kitchen?

No food plans here yet.
I have some running around to do this afternoon, so maybe I'll get some inspiration somewhere and stop at a grocery store before I head home.

I am off to play at a street festival this afternoon, but hopefully will be home by 4:30. If so, I am going to grill a chicken, and maybe even have time to brine it for an hour or two.

Not sure, the little one wants crabby patties on a burger like sponge bob cooks (burger made from crab cakes). I may do those tomorrow for lunch.

Going to hit up the farmers market this morning to see what they have. I am ready for okra.

Fresh swordfish on sale today so I'll get a slice to slap on the grill. A tossed salad along side will do the trick.

We brought home some olive salad from Central Grocery in New Orleans and I have some muffuletta bread dough proofing so....we're having muffulettas tonight. Probably some nice cold beer and more of the black forest cake for dessert.

Change in plans. No swordfish today. It'll be pork tenderloin on the grill and a salad instead.

My kitchen is a complete disaster at the moment. I've had a slow draining sink for almost a week now and the plumber cancelled on me because of an emergency so HOPEFULLY they will be here today. In an effort to move the standing water a bit, Ken and I plunged the sink...I suspect we may have blown a seal somewhere. Shortly after plunging I was cleaning up water that had poured out from under my sink. ARRRRGH!

That was the long version of dinner tonight is either "waitandsee" or take out. I'll post back when I have a better clue of when my kitchen will be functional.

Eek!

At least there was no caustic drain cleaner involved.
