What for Dinner? 8th of May 2012

Making traditional South African grub for change. Some Pap, Morogo, sheba and meat on the bone translated into regular english that would be White Polenta, Tomato and Onion Relish, Spinach and Chuck Steak. Yum!

Daughter is home from college for the summer, so I am making one of her favorites tonight: smoked kielbasa with BBQ baked beans and oven roasted potatoes.

(Okay, it's one of my favorites, too. )

Today's a rainy day. We've had a lot of those lately.

I'm making a skillet dinner with hash browns, kielbasa, onions, cheese, etc. I may toss in some bacon fat to enhance the experience.

Not sure what it'll be yet. I hit the market on my way home from work so the choices are good right now. I think it will be something with hamburger but not sure what. I'm thinking sloppy joes. DH doesn't like them on buns the traditional way so I make the meat and sauce and wrap it crescent rolls and bake it in the oven. It ends up more like a calzone with sloppy joe mix and cheddar cheese instead of marinara and mozzarella. I also picked up salad stuff so have those on the side. Cookies for dessert.
I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

It is cold and rainy so I made a pot of bean soup and some Snickerdoodles!

I really need to make a store run, the cupboard is getting bare!

It finally cleared up here today, Andy. You should have a few hours of dry, clear weather starting 'bout 3:00 AM tonight

I was going to make something with mushrooms, Vidalia onions and asparagus tonight. I decided to expand into some sort of stir-fry and was roooting around in the freezer and found half an alligator fillet. And I think I will also add some bacon to enhance the experience, along with some kind of hot sauce. Served over jasmine rice.

Hi Snippers! [insert waving smiley we don't have here]
Give us this day our daily bacon.

It was Teacher Appreciation lunch, and DH had tacos for lunch, so we're not terribly hungry yet. DH brought home the United Way dinner from work that we signed up for, pulled pork, coleslaw, apple crisp, to be consumed later. There will be leftovers.
