Saturday the 21st. What's On The Table?

When I was a kid and living in the Brighton section of Boston, hot dogs and beans was the standard Saturday night dinner. Mom would heat up a big can of B&M baked beans and boil some hot dogs.

That was then. This is now.

Now we are having shrimp risotto and green beans sautéed with shallots and mushrooms. The dish was inspired by the seafood risotto recipe posted here earlier but will be a simpler version focused on the shrimp as the seafood component.

I'm playing around with my 15 year old, newly rediscovered Nesco roaster, and trying to make a dent in a10 lb bag of potatoes (thanks to DH), and an overabundance of ham.

Scalloped potatoes and ham for tonight and for the next few weeks....

Something easy, or I'll use the phone. I'm up to my eyeballs in tax returns.

We're going to an Argentina-themed food and wine party, so I made something called "Tarta de Pollo y Choclo" (Chicken and Corn Tart) to bring along.

My wife has started a low carb diet and I was hungry for pasta. I've never made eggplant lasagna before, but I will again

It's something very easy. DH is making tacos. Yay!

All I had to do was chop the onions & tomato and shred the lettuce.
