Thirty steamed cherry stones, dipped in melted butter (20 for me & 10 for DW) and a pint of coleslaw each. Plan to make clams casino with the next thirty. Will use the liquid from tonight's batch to make a quart or so of chowder.

I have never had pimento cheese but it should go well with the pimento in the soup. How do you make the cheese?

Early dinner today because daughter has to work on a class project with a classmate.

Spinach Salad topped with bacon & mushrooms (Dressed with Basil Vinaigrette with whole grain Dijon mustard added)



Mushrooms breaded and deep fried in only bacon grease. (OMG were they good!! Not greasy at all because the fat was very hot and sealed the breading instantly, this kept all of the wonderful mushroom juice inside until bitten. I will be doing that again)









Homemade Bean with Smoked Ham & Bacon Soup (This is a first run for this recipe and I did it in the pressure cooker. I soaked the navy beans overnight and it only took 8 minutes to cook them)

I only made a small batch for myself. I used:

2 oz. softened cream cheese
2 oz. prepared Parmesan
4 oz. grated medium cheddar
1 sm. container of pimentos, minus a tablespoon used in the Confetti Soup.

I mashed the cream cheese together with the Parm. using a fork, then added the cheddar and pimento then mixed well with mayo. Very good!

Thanks for asking.

My dinner turned out very good. Pork and the beans could have both used a bit less salt, but very good. Here's a link to some photos of the food I posted in another thread regarding the pork roast.

Was the jar of pimentos just roasted red pepperes in oil/liquid or brined like the kind in stuffed green olives?

In oil/liquid (not drained as it just adds more pimento flavor.)

It might be good with chopped olives w/pimentos, but I've never tried it.

Summer weather here today......woo hoo...sunny and 82 degrees out there.

Will fire up the barby and stovetop smoker for either country style pork ribs or Tri Tip later. Think I'll even do Sesame Noodles since it feels so much like summer. Sure wish I had some summer home grown tomatoes for the salad!

Don't rub it in or anything... Can't wait for summer!! We're building a house and we'll be in the middle of it by then....at least I hope so!
