medtran... you and Craig take care. Take what you can, and be damned to the rest. Seeing as you have to go, make it a vacation... and enjoy yourselves.
(ok, never mind, that was dumb, you will still worry... but TRY not to)


(but first, wrap the rest all up in heavy plastic before you leave..)

Rubbed and grilled country-style pork ribs and a tossed salad.

Med, I'm thinking of you and everyone in harms way.

We had deconstructed killer Cheeseburgers..without bread.

Fried up some thick sliced bacon, removed from pan and added sliced onion, and sliced crimini mushrooms till browned and kept it all warm in the toaster oven. Fried up the thick patties, topped with sliced Swiss cheese and served them in shallow bowls of of romaine and grape tomatoes. Topped the cheeseburgers with the bacon/onions/mushrooms/Peperoncini and drizzled the whole thing with Catalina salad dressing.
Ohh yeah!!

What's cookin' Tuesday, 10-4-2016

Oh dear. Stay safe, medtran and Craig!

I remember Hurricane Wilma hitting Cozumel, 12 years ago, I think. Nobody works harder than Mexicans. They hacked my friends out of the jungle with machetes in two days.

I'll bring my machete. And a couple of Mexicans.

OMGosh, watching the weather reports and thinking of y'all.

As for dinner, a simple taco Tuesday here, too. I grabbed some leftover seasoned ground beef out of the freezer this morning...chopped up some lettuce and tomatoes...fried a couple of corn tortillas, wrapped them up and called it good. Kind of tired this evening and not wanting to do much more.

Mrs Landlord went to the farmer's market on Saturday and sent down a "squash" ... 'I have no idea what this is but it looked interesting and I thought you would be able to make something more palatable than I could...'
HMMM
It's a Butternut and so I searched for something different to make her for her late work night on Tuesday (tonight).
I made this
Baked Pasta with Butternut Squash
it looked and smelled amazing!
Thing is, I parcooked it and stopped at the "bake for 30 minutes..." and sent it up the dumb waiter for they're supper...
I did ask that they please take a photo of the finished product, since this was a new recipe for me.
.... we had chicken cacciatore (DH does not like squash) with the other half of the box of cavatappi (I thought that a half pound of pasta was enough), DH loved it, what? he's a rigatoni kinds guy ...

I made pan-seared pork chops sprinkled with Penzeys Southwest Seasoning, topped with leftover pineapple-tomatillo salsa, along with baked potatoes. I also made garden salads.

It's looking like we'll be getting at least some wind and rain from Matthew this weekend. Right now, we're planning on stocking up on supplies and staying here. Hoping it stays offshore.

Take care, Craig and medtran, and anyone else who might be affected.

I hope things shift east for you, too. It would be good to go back home and find everything just like you left it, only a little wetter. Stay safe on the west coast.

Himself was happy with the change of dinner plans. Rather than margaritas, though, or something vodka-based (since it seems like it was also Happy Vodka Day or some such thing), he decided we needed to use up some of the OJ in the refrigerator. Voila! An old-tyme favorite: Tequila Sunrises...or, in our case, Sunsets.
