What are you eating Monday 11/20/2017?

I am starting my thanksgiving prep tonight so quick, easy and minimal mess dinners will be served tonight through Wednesday.

Tonight will probably be Marie Callender Beef pot pie for me.

Leftovers at the doghouse. Time to clean out the fridge before leaving town.

The plan is for tostada's but....

The Trader Joe's sample server made me eat a bit of their Puff Dogs and forced me to buy a package...

Maybe that avocado isn't quite ready for today's tostada.. Maybe we will postpone to Tostada Tuesday....

A cold beer goes with either.. or both..

The peach cobbler is ready tho...

The ribs/mashed/veggie I didn't make last night are on deck for tonight.

Not a very exciting dinner, but it tasted good. A bowl of oatmeal, scrambled eggs, and a slice of toasted rye bread.

We had short ribs done in the pressure cooker, with beef broth, red wine, and thyme, with fingerlings, carrots, pearl onions, and green beans on the side.

I made a goodly sized batch of Oven Kalua Pork (pig or as I saw someone else here at DC used the correct Hawaiian word, Pua'a ) this afternoon. The exterminator came and as I opened the front door and I got, "Snifffffff - Oh my goodness something smells just wonderful! What are you cooking?" It did smell pretty dang good, even outside!
Anyways ...
I had cooked up dinner last night and neither of us felt like eating so, y'know, that's okay, food doesn't go to waste here... (like my Mom would say, "either eat tonight or you'll have it for breakfast!" )

Fried Saimin (noodles w/loads of veg and other goodies)
Teriyaki B/S Chicken
Kalua Pork

I just can't stop smacking my lips!

I'll divvy up the pork manana in to serving sized portions and vacuum pack them for the deep freeze. This batch did come out extra ONO!

PSST! I found that using Mesquite Liquid Smoke tastes WAY better than the Hickory!! Much closer to the real deal stuff, IMHO anyways.

After 3 straight double shifts, I rewarded myself by stopping by an international food market on the way into work tonight.

I bought a small Camembert from France, 2 large cans of Dolmades (1 each from Greece and Turkey), jars of Cerignola olives and anchovy filets from Italy, grated Romani cheese from Wisconsin, a half pound of Norwegian smoked salmon, and 2 smoked mackerel from Brooklyn.

I've been snacking on the olives and Greek dolmades, yum. Dinner will be anchovies on crackers, the olives and dolmades, and a few leftover fried shrimp with cocktail sauce.

I went down to the demonstration, to get my fair share of abuse.
