Tuesday's Dinner 12/16/14

Boy, it sure is quiet around here today. Everybody OK?

What's up for dinner?

I'm defrosting some lamb cubes for a lamb and okra stew.

I've been busy all morning working on the no-sew blankets for my 6 grands for Christmas.

It's only 11AM here so haven't thought too much about dinner yet, but did find a package of pulled pork in the freezer - so I think it'll be tacos and an avocado.

It's my mother-in-law's birthday, so we are taking her out to dinner tonight. When asked where she wanted to go, she said Outback Steakhouse. I've never eaten at one, so I have no idea what to expect. Their website makes me think it's an Applebee's or Olive Garden type of chain place - except with a steak theme.

Right on. They're a pretend Australian steakhouse. You can get a good steak there. We don't go there any more because we were treated badly once.

Everybody okay here, just working on some time consuming projects, such as the affordable healthcare act...can't wait until I'm 65....anyway, haven't thought about dinner yet. Probably something from the freezer; need to check that out.

Well, that's never good.

I guess I'll have a steak tonight, since that appears to be their specialty. When in Rome... or pretend Sydney, as the case may be.

Finally cutting into the cryovac pork loin I got last Thursday. I'll freeze three chunks, taking one to OH to turn into pork chops our first day there. The fourth piece, about 2#, will be roasted with garlic, mustard and sage. I'm cleaning out fresh veggies too, and tonight's star will be green beans. Big salads. Maybe bake a potato for Himself.

Their first claim to fame was the "Bloomin Onion", but the clue that something isn't Aussie is the Foster's beer.

I found some ripe avocados at the store today, so dinner was Gazpacho. YUM!
