Sunday, fun day, what's on your plate? 11/12/17

We had a reversed seared rib eye, creamed spinach, and fondant potatoes. Steak is a bit on the rare side, but we'd rather that than on the two much on the medium side. Of course, DD would be thrilled to be served a piece even more rare.

Because of feelings of guilt with all our junk food meals this past week, we are having a large, healthy salad with crackers for supper..

Of course, there will be pie later... Pumpkin pie.. With whipped cream..

And I meant too, not two. Edit time expired. I always have a problem when I post on my phone, getting old eyes I guess.

That's 2- 2's, but who's counting.

I'm sort of backwards today, and trying to catch up. For a late breakfast I nuked a couple spare ribs and made home fries. For supper in a little while I decided to make a couple slices of sour dough French toast and some sliced Costco jarred peaches. Sprinkle of cinnamon on one or the other.

Tonight we'll have a pan seared ham steak and cinnamon mashed sweet potato.

I made myself hungry when I wrote this earlier today on the Thanksgiving Dressing thread so this is what we're having tonight.
As I mentioned when I make the dressing, I make lots and freeze it in quart zip lock bags. One of our favorite year round meals is making two mounds of defrosted dressing in a bake pan, and topping the mounds with two well seasoned skillet browned chicken thighs, finishing in the oven. The juices from the thighs into the dressing is spectacular, just like a stuffed bird. A gravy can be made with the fond in the skillet for mashed potatoes. Yummy!!
That's now the end of the dressing 2016

I made pork carnitas for the first time. They were OK, but nothing special. I did them in the slow cooker (a Cuisanart Multi-Cooker) with the following recipe, and put the meat under the broiler for 10 minutes. Not sure if I'll try again.
