Tues. Dinner, 5/24/16

Well I got my Jamaican Jerk Seasoning | Savory Spice
yesterday, so I'm marinating thighs for the grill tonight. I'm using the websites marinade recipe only cutting down the jerk seasoning to 3 Tbs instead of 6, as SC doesn't like a lot of heat. I'm doing six thighs.
SC will make glorified salads for both of us and I'll do some garlic bread for him.

What's happening at your house?

It's kind of a chilly, dreary day today so I've rescued a container of Hungarian goulash soup from the freezer for dinner. I'll make a small salad to go with it.

Warm and sunny today, not the best weather for the large pot of pinto beans and ham I am cooking, to go with the cornbread presently in the oven.

It's only in the upper 50's and off and on rain today, so it's my Italian chicken and tomato stew, basmati rice, broc. Tomorrow is forecasted to be in the 80's, so it will be grilling time.

I took a pork sirloin steak out of the freezer this morning not knowing what I was going to do with it, since I knew I'd have Tyler all afternoon and be pretty busy. I ended up flouring, seasoning and browning the chop, adding some sliced onions, dumping a can of cream of mushroom soup over it and letting it slow simmer for a couple of hours.

I haven't used COM soup in quite a while, but found a can in the cupboard. I've been tasting it and had forgotten how good those easy smothered pork chops can be. I'll pour it over egg noodles and have some steamed broccoli on the side. Yum.

Grabbed a rotisserie chicken from the hot foods at the local market and made some Trader Joe's Rice Pilaf, green beans, bread. Paired with a glass of Rolling Rock lager.

How was that heat for you, Kayelle? I noticed that the blend included a bit of scotch bonnets. The one I got from The Spice House uses habaneros, and it's plenty spicy for me!

*********************************

We're nowhere near the coast, but we had a cool drizzle here in Massachusetts' "Frontier", too. I had seen a cauliflower hiding behind the eggs, and I knew I had a good portion of Velveeta I wanted to disappear before summer, so I made a small pot of cheesy cauliflower soup. Added a little extra cayenne, Colman's mustard, and smoke seasoning - warmed us up right proper! I used four Chick-fil-a tenders I had tucked into the freezer a month or two ago. Himself had a chicken cordon bleu sandwich on a whole wheat roll, while I rolled mine into a cordon bleu salad, also adding a few grape tomatoes, a barely hard-cooked egg, and a half avocado.
