What's for din-din? Sat, Jan 24th

We're headed out to our dinner club party in a few minutes. Tonight's theme is "south of the border" and I'm in charge of the appetizer round. I made a Ceviche of Shrimp and Sea Bass, Bacon and Roasted Tomatillo Guacamole, and a tomato-less salsa from dried guajillo and arbole chiles.

The invitation didn't specify which border, so I hope I chose the right one.

Sounds good, Steve.

Kind of a southwestern theme going on here, too. Black bean and corn salad with avocados, and pulled pork tacos.

We have enough Thai takeout leftovers to last us for a couple more days.

I'm a short order cook in my house. I made my husband a nice steak with potatoes that I cooked in the pan after I took the steak out. Red Wine, butter, spices.

I made my favorite go to cole slaw recipe. Broccoli slaw from the store, lemon yogurt, lemon juice, mayo, raisins, and sun flower seeds. I also made my favorite kind of Turkey burgers (greek with feta, kalmata, and sundried tomatoes in oil, other misc stuff). I had one of the turkey burgers to go with the slaw.

A cook’s best friend: Parsley. Brightens up today’s spelunked Beef Stew. Shredded cabbage salad with grapes and home-made blue cheese dressing. A handful of grapes for evening treat later.

So for some reason a made a ton of french onion soup yesterday, we had some for lunch and still have a gallon left, lol...

So for dinner I made some fresh croutons {is that an oxymoron} the size of my bowls, shredded some boars head lacey swiss, and since I had to clean my slicer anyway I sliced some sirloin nice and thin then cooked it in a pan with some mushrooms and butter, removed the shaved steak and made what was left in the pan into a fast sauce...

So I know its weird but we had a cheesy french onion soup with some shaved steak, it was good..

Also I broke open a bottle of home made ginger ale {we bought last week at a local show}, the kids loved it I thought it was a bit too sweet and way too poppy...

Yummy. I'm stuffed, but not too full for ice cream here in a few.

Dangit, Cheryl, you had to mention ice cream. We don't have any ice cream.

Your dinner looks lovely, BTW.

Thank you, Dawg.

Ice cream is a staple here. I almost never run out.
