What's Cooking for Wednesday, February 3, 2016

TB is feeling much better from his bout with the flu but still wanted to eat light so I made him one of his favourites - roasted drumsticks with steamed rice and peas. That should keep him going through his shift with the sandwiches and fruit I packed for him.

I just had some rice and peas for lunch but will have more of my spinach/artichoke mac and cheese with some leftover chicken later. I can only eat small meals more often since this last bout of flu and pain flare. But that is good!

Earlier this week Glenn said he had a hankerin' for swimps, so...

Tonight we'll have shrimp fra diavolo over fettuccine with a side of steamed green beans. I have a feeling there won't be any leftovers.

We're still wrestling with the potato salad. I just can't make it for fewer than 8 people. Thankfully, DH proclaimed it the best he's ever had.

We're having Ling Ling potstickers and sauce too.

The Souschef has been busy chopping, and I'm about ready to put together my shortcut Chili Verde for tonight. Since I took an expert page from GG about adding some fresh tomitillo's it's really over the top good now! Our corner Mexican market had a big beautiful crop at .50 a lb.
Toppings planned are yellow and white cheese, chopped onion, cilantro and sliced avocado. Four tortilla's for the SC.

We had a very interesting pasta dish. Store bought, fresh ravioli and tortellini with a corn, garlic and pasta water sauce. Some fresh basil and fresh grated parm. It was pretty good.

Hopefully the homemade, creme fraiche will be ready tomorrow. We will have a Florida lobster dish with blini, creme fraiche and Russian caviar. We will pop the cork on the Perrier Jouet, flower bottle I bought a couple years ago, as a go with. Basically a "once in a blue moon", luxury meal.

Popcorn for lunch today... haven't planned dinner yet but breakfast is sounding interesting and I have some overripe bananas ... Yup that's it. Tonight's dinner:

Banana bread
Corn souffle
Chopped up fruit
left over ham
Forget love... I'd rather fall in chocolate!

When I did my shopping this week I came across a spiral sliced ham for 69 a pound!

I roasted the ham this morning and had a couple of slices for dinner with a side of cauliflower.

In the morning I will wrap and freeze the ham slices in meal size packages.

The scraps will go into a small batch of ham salad and the bone will make a couple quarts of rich stock.

Why does 69 a pound ham taste so much better than $2.49 a pound ham?

Great sounding dinners tonight. Joey, as always, your dinner looks so good.

AB, what a great deal on the ham! You can get so much mileage out of that for such a good price.

I threw together a skillet dinner this evening - sweet Italian sausage, potatoes, chopped red and green bells, onions, asparagus, and scrambled eggs. There's enough left over for breakfast in the morning.
