Tuesday dinner 8/7/18

I'm doing some thighs with lime and cilantro. Sides will be Spanish Rice and glorified salads made with part of the produce haul I made at the dollar store today, including a beautiful head of butter lettuce. Tiz a pretty thing with it's roots in it's own clear plastic box. $1.00 score..

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.

I made a big pot of tomato sauce with some pork bones for extra flavor. We had that on pasta with salad and corn on the cob. I think the best part is picking the meat off the bones and eating it - chef's prerogative.

Lovely, Roch, but for two? I probably use more greens, etc, on one salad when I make them for us. Then again, each of our salads gets about 1/2 of a chicken breast. We like our veggies.

It was a kind of cook's day off. I made hot ham and cheese sandwiches on kaiser rolls, a cuke-and-red onion salad for Himself (I got the vinegar water right even though I didn't even taste it ); sliced tomatoes and "marinated" them in balsamic vinegar-EVOO-Italian seasonings-fresh basil; and a fresh corn-black bean-tomato dish. Himself sprinkled more red onions on his serving while we both had crumbled cojita cheese.

The food looked so good. I took a photo. This phone takes really nice pictures. You might eventually get to see them. I still need to set up some stuff on the phone...

I watched a Binging with Babbish video yesterday, and decided to make what he made, a Rochester, NY famous Garbage Plate. It looked interesting, and was. I can't get Zweigle's red hots here, so I used Earl Campbell's(yes, the football legend) red hots, instead. I also used French fries, instead of home fries, which is allowable, according to Rochester traditions.

It was not bad, but not great, either. It was WAY too much food for me to eat in one meal.

We had cold veggie & fruit plates again last night - I probably will again tonight but Mom wants potato, onion, & kielbasa soup today. So, a small pot she will get, just enough for her.
