We went here today for lunch..Cherry Pocket Steak & Seafood Shak - Home
and was very disappointed. We both had the filet and there was no spice on it at all. The dirty rice had a strange spice in it that I couldn't identify. It's a kitschy(sp?) place with license plates all over and wood floors, etc. Atmosphere was great, food, eh.But they did have homemade peanut butter pie that was rich and good.

I had a tomato, lettuce, dill pickle and Miracle Whip sandwich. Sometimes, I crave sandwiches without the meat.

I tried something different this time and it turned out fantastic. I hate grey broccoli, so I cut up the stems seperated from the crowns and some onion. I made broccoli stock with this and strained out the chunks, letting the stock cool down. I fine chopped the crowns and half an onion, sauteeing in a bit of canola oil. The broccoli was bright green and crisp-tender. Then added some AP flour to make a roux, being careful not to brown it and stirred in the stock. (I had about a quart of stock) (of course I didn't measure a thing) Then I stirred in the cheddar cheese, once melted through I added 1/2 and 1/2 and brought it back up to temp. Again, it was fantastic and the broccoli bits were still crisp-tender. Also kosher salt and fresh grind pepper made an appearance at some point, most likely when I was sauteeing.

Yes, I tend to cook "off-the-cuff."

Today we will have Pork Green Chili over rice with a side of refries, flour tortillas, shredded cheese and sour cream to top it. It's been cooking all night in the crock pot...the house smells yummy!

Sorry it's been a couple of weeks, but your lunch sounded great! I would love to have more meals like that, but my SO's stomach can't handle it.

Today is turkey club sandwiches... lettuce, tomato and bacon.
