It is Nacho chicken night here. I have also got all manner of garden veggies to use. I think a mimosa salad will be on the short list, then some pan fried potatoes and maybe zucchini?

Anyone got some zucchini they'd like to give away?

We did left overs for lunch. I think I'll do up some chicken nuggets with tater tots.

Has anyone seen Hansel and Gretel?

What's Cooking (or not) August 30, 2014?

Aunt Bea! I had to wake DH from his football-induced coma and send him to the store for charcoal, we were completely out. So grilled cherry chipotle sauced pork chops, potato salad, and green beans.

I had a craving for cornbread and wanted something that goes well with cornbread! I did up a chicken stew and did the cornbread in a funky looking cast iron pan, apparently my oven was invaded by aliens!

The braised pork shoulder is done and stripped from the bone - actually the bone fell out. I just put the meat in a baggie in the fridge to separate into packages for the freezer tomorrow.

I had quite a time trying to figure out what to do with the hamburger. No taco seasoning left, no sauces or makings. No bread for meatloaf.

I finally remembered that I had made a meatloaf using cornbread stuffing mix previously, but forgot and went ahead and salted the meat so it ended up way too salty.

I still had half the stuffing mix left, so I went ahead and made meatloaf, leaving out the salt, and it was just right.

I served it with warmed salsa. Very good.

Add us to the "leftovers" list. After my flurry of activity today I was thankful for leftover Swiss steak, noodles, baby lima beans, iced tea and zucchini cake. No matter...even leftover, it's all good.

We had sirloin steak from Conrad, the grass fed bull calf. It was delicious, but a little chewy. I served it with potatoes, steamed broccoli, and Béarnaise sauce.

Thanks to whoever suggested serving vegis with Béarnaise. It was good on the potatoes too. I still have some leftover Béarnaise, but I'll figure out what to do with it. This time I used the method from Friday Grilling: Easy Bearnaise Sauce | Michael Ruhlman, but I used the reduced vinegar-vermouth-seasoning from Julia Child. It was really good.
