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

Like CG said yesterday, it's a time for cleaning up leftovers.

It's also time for me to clean out the freezer to make room for next Wednesday's major shopping.

I took out the last of the hamburger to thaw, but I'm not sure what I'll make with it.

I thawed the other pork sirloin roast (4.4#) and am braising it in apple juice. I'll be able to have a nice dinner and package the rest to freeze, taking up much less freezer space.

What's going on in your kitchen?

Not a darned thing.

We're going out for drinks with two other couples to celebrate SO's official retirement. Then off to dinner at one of the couple's home.

We got a case of Malpeque Bay oysters yesterday so today is oyster day. That is less the few I had last night.

Brats, not sure what else.

The fridge is getting bare, shopping tomorrow.

Maybe I'll just settle for a side of mustard!

That struck me funny, Aunt Bea - "I'm cooking brats tonight!" Those children better behave!

I'm not sure what to make. I need to take a look in the fridge and freezer.

Leftovers here, too. Was just looking through the fridge and will probably use up the bits and pieces of cheese, pita bread, olives, and maybe some celery and cucumber with chipotle ranch dressing.

Congrats to SO! Do we need to extend sympathies to you because she'll be underfoot all day, or have you guys worked out the "24/7" thing?


Z, I'm still re-purposing my food from earlier in the week. One small piece of kiebasa will probably be happily gobbled by Himself - time to open a new jar of sauerkraut. I'm make another fish fillet sandwich with cheese. Ran across a still-good smidgen of remoulade sauce instead of the tartar sauce I used last night. There will still be another piece of fish for Himself. What remained of yesterday's relish tray will be tossed with lettuce and a few new things to make an "Everything Salad".

This must be a day for leftovers. I have half a tired looking rotisserie chicken, and think I'll make PPO's easy Chicken Tortilla Soup. I'll do it on the grill side burner to keep the kitchen cooler.
