Veterans Day Dinner - 11/11/2018

It's Veterans Day in the U.S., honoring those who served in the U.S. armed forces. Some other countries remember this as the end of World War 1. Thanks to those who served in our armed forces.

Went to daughter and SIL's for dinner, so I took a paella kit and a salad. Paella kit consisted of sausage, chicken, shrimp, and veggies, all prepped and ready to go into the pan at their house.

Granddaughter just started walking this week, and I had a lot of time to play with her, as dinner was pretty much ready to go.

Happy Veterans Day! I gave my own personal veteran a big hug

And I'm making one of his favorite dinners - pot roast over egg noodles with green beans. I also have rolls made from no-knead bread in the oven.

Stuffed red peppers with canned pea pods for DH.
Worked on packaging cheese from the cheese cave to the refrigerator. Parm, camemberts, colby.

Leftover chili here. Kind of a lazy day.

Went up to my lot today to see how much sun comes through the trees. Looks like if I want to see any sun in winter, most of the trees on the south side will need to come down.

Anyway, I got back late and tonight I'm afraid all I'm eating is a couple of hot dogs (blackened under the broiler) in stadium rolls, complete with cheese, onions, ketchup, and mustard. But not relish. I don't like relish.

To any of you who served in the armed services, to any of you who was the support for someone who served, thank you.

Another quick and dirty night for me. Canned clam chowder, doctored with a bit of thyme and sage and canned oysters, and some garlic bread. Nothing like homemade chowder, but it hit the spot!

Another salute to any veteran or family members around here. Dad served, Himself got off...because he didn't pass the hearing test. I can CERTAINLY attest to that!

I used to buy Snow's clam chowder in OH 'cuz that was the best back then. I stumbled upon a little trick that makes clam chowder richer - about a Tbsp of cream cheese stirred into the pot just before serving. Makes it richer, creamier, and with just the right tang.
