Tuesday June 28th--What's on the Menu Today?

I have chicken leg-quarters defrosting, but I'm still not sure how I will fix them. I am thinking about cooking them with canned tomatoes, onions, and spices and serving them with some multi-vegetable spiral macaroni I bought last week, and with corn. That could change as my mood changes.

What are you eating today?

I save the marvelous oyster stew stock and will pick up another 1/2 pint of oysters at the store today. That may be dinner, maybe not.

I haven't been very hungry lately so I'm taking advantage of it. I might just have the rest of the salmon salad with a few crackers. This is the second time I made it. I had tired of the salmon loaf I used to make, but I received 2 cans of pink salmon in the monthly "commodities" box so I used them in salmon salad which I had never made.

I figured I'd use it like I would tuna. Wish I had thought of it before, it was delicious, much better than tuna. I also used in with an Alfredo sauce and egg noodles and pimento (ala king-ish) which also turned out well.

I'm thinking something with shrimp and pasta. Garlic and butter will be involved.

I've got a big, thick rib eye defrosting. Not sure what the sides will be yet. I went to the garden this morning and found this huge zucchini and a bunch more tomatoes so I think they will be on the menu as well tonight in some form or fashion.

It's supposed to rain this evening so I'm going to defrost a meal of tomato sauce with meatballs and sausages. I suppose I should cook some pasta to go with it.
