Saturday Night Dinner. May 26th

It may be National Blueberry Cheesecake Day AND National Cherry Dessert Day, but we're not having wither of those.

Tonight's meal will be shrimp pad thai.

What delectables are you contemplating?

I was in East McKinney yesterday, and shopped at the Mexican market there. I have some fajita (skirt steak) marinating now to toss on the grill later. I also have some fresh corn tortillas, some Pico de gallo, and queso fresco to make some fajita tacos.

I made stuffed shells today to add to my FIL's freezer meals. I asked DH and FIL whether they wanted grilled burgers and corn on the cob again or stuffed shells for dinner tonight. Burgers and corn won.

Mom took me out to lunch for tacos, beans and rice after we got done at the cemetery this morning. I doubt I will be hungry again.

Fresh corn season is so fleeting you NEED to eat it while you can! I know the season has been extended with much-improved shippable corn varieties, but we like to eat it whenever we can.

Having said that, I'm getting ready to make a sort of Breakfast for Supper. I kept some ham back from the collard greens meal the other day. To that we'll be having mushroom and spinach omelets with a side of - no, not potatoes - corn-and-tomato salad.

I haven't cooked my fajitas, yet. I am snacking on chicharrones made two days ago at El Rancho Supermercado. I don't like your basic fried pork skins made whenever and wherever, but these fresh chicharrones made locally are good -- addictive, actually. Pork skin fried in manteca (lard). Very simple. Don't tell my doctor I ate them.

I guess Himself hadn't noticed the spinach in the omelet. He told me "it was good!"
