Oh no, AB! What a mess...

Just a light dinner here this evening. Potstickers, and edamame with a little sesame oil. Not very hungry this evening, I snacked a little this afternoon.

Wow AB, could have been worse. Glad you did not get cut or burned.

I'm not feeling so good (a cold coming on ) so I had chicken rice soup and I made some ice cream, avocado & lime...... so smooth and limey!

I ran out of energy to make the pan sauce but the chops were nice and juicy without it. Everything is brown, but as Ann Burrell says, "Brown food tastes good!"

Pirate made a chicken with rice soup for himself. He thawed out a piece of haddock for me, but the soup was soooo good that I opted for that instead. I will have the fish tomorrow.

AuntB, that's too bad about the mess. I hate when I do things like that. Hope you get every little sliver of glass off the floor.

GG, that's a neat idea with the bread if you actually HAVE soft white bread. Since we usually have rye or multi-grain here, I'll have to stick with my tried-and-true dampened paper towel.

medtran, I need to remember pecorino romano instead of parm the next time if I make meatballs.

I had a sirloin spoon roast that needed using up, so I made a pot roast with bacon, mushrooms and beer. Since the neighbor had her dogs out barking a lot today, I was able to get really fluffy mashed potatoes. We also had tiny Brussels sprouts. Perfect food for a cool autumn evening.

I always have Pecorino and Parm cheese on hand. But I prefer the Pecorino myself. It has a much more pronounced flavor and aroma. It can add so much depth to a dish.

a New York Strip Steak topped with Crimini Mushrooms in a garlic, butter and white wine sauce. Side dishes of sweet corn on the cob and diced Cucumbers for me and heirloom tomatoes for DH. I don't care for them...

dessert later... Meyer Lemon Meringue Pie!

Oh Aunt Bea, what a bummer.k

A friend came over for supper. We had pork schnitzel, roasted potato wedges, roasted root vegis, and rødkål. I served it with Mateus (Portuguese rosé wine). Homemade strawberry ice cream for dessert.
