Saturday eats, 1-5-19

In keeping with my culinary resolutions (to cook things that are already in my freezer) I defrosted some tuna steaks, then gave them a coa of black and white sesame seeds and seared them today for lunch. My boy made a peanut, garlic, and soy dipping sauce while DW made coconut rice for lunch.

After that, I defrosted some chicken sausage and added it to a pot of scratch made sauce, frozen meataballs, and pork rib ends. It won't have time to finish, so I'm letting it cool a bit before putting it in the garage fridge to be finished cooking tomorrow as Sunday gravy.

What are you cooking and/or eating today, the 5th of the new year?

Leg of lamb here, with salads and bread. I did one of my fave sammich, warm lamb with onion and mint jelly. Really good.

Swap out the mint jelly with a little mustard, and I'm right there with you, Rascal.

From the deep recesses of my freezer I spelunked some precooked leftover Italian sausage. I'm making crockpot lasagna with baby spinach.

Gf and I did our usual song and dance and talked about going out tonight. But, then we factor our getting home time plus the getting ready and the drive to a decent place and decide it iwill be too late to enjoy ourselves. So, we, too are heading to the freezer to thaw some shrimp and what ever goodies are in there and having a seafood pasta. As of now, anyway. We may talk ourselves out if that, too by the time we get home.

We went to Costco yesterday and grabbed a ro-chicken. Took a package of puff pastry out of the freezer to top off individual chicken pies for dinner tonight. Best part - SO is making dinner tonight.

I can't read the term chicken pot pie without the meme in my head (a meme-worm?) that says "three of my favorite things".

Sans commas.

I'll be doing some beer brats on top of skillet cabbage with apples and onion.

That sounds good to us on a very chilly wet night.

Instant Pot chicken & rice, steamed broccoli and muffins. I'm going to prep a meatloaf for tomorrow, since I'll be chopping veggies anyway.

Every time you post a photo, I see a broken link. Anyone else?

This is the link to the image that's in your post (I put it on two lines so it will show up as text). What is the process you use to add a photo to your posts?
