Too Hot to Cook Saturday 7/11/15

So it's Crock Pot Chili.

I made some Itialian Sausage the other day that was a bit too salty. (I knew it at the time but blindly followed the recipe) It made a great spagetti sauce but I had leftover that I wanted to use up.

Into the pot.

Red Beans
Beef Stock
Turkey Stock
Chili Powder.
Adobo Seasoning.
Tomato Paste.
Dried Parsley. (It needed something green)
Sausage. (Browned)

Got to use up some things from the freezer so that's another plus to go with not heating up the house and being able to not pay much attention to it.

Hope it ends up eatable.
I might be back to tell you all it was McD's for dinner.

I found a recipe on Serious Eats' Food Lab this week that looks pretty good for Grilled Shrimp with Chermoula. I've been experimenting with North African foods a lot lately, so I may try this tonight.

OMG! I decided to blog!

I'm making tzatziki today to use up a couple of garden cucumbers (and will take some on our beach trip tomorrow), so I'll make chicken with Greek seasonings and a Greek salad. I'm hoping we can grill the chops but it's pouring down rain right now. We'll see what whether it stops by dinnertime.

I'm grilling a couple of pork chops. We'll have them along with a pasta salad or tossed salad.

Ditto on the Happy Birthday, lyndalou! Hope you have a very enjoyable dinner.

Zagut, I'd be OK if you kept your unbearable heat down there with you. The last two days in south-central MA have been delightful. Not looking forward to tomorrow's 90 and humidity.


The plan is to grill a seasoned pork tenderloin - seasoning to be determined. However, if Himself doesn't get himself out to cut grass soon, I'll probably wait with the tenderloin until tomorrow, since I've had a taste for breakfast-for-supper for a couple of days now.

Zagut....sure sounds good to me!

I'll be having leftover zucchini gratin from yesterday, and a fresh fruit salad. Maybe some pepper jack cheese and wheat crackers for a little crunch.

We're still recovering from our trip. Some potstickers from Costco and dipping sauce.
