I have the corn beef cooked. But Pirate is very sick and I had a big lunch when I went out with my daughter. So I will save the veggies for tomorrow and heat up the corn beef.

I made the mistake of trying a recipe against my better judgement (again!)

It called for fast roasting a silverside beef joint (which is traditionally suited to slow braising). This joint is similar to topside which can be fast roasted, i.e. served quite rare (else it would be tough). Needless to say it did not work...too chewy - the fibres not breaking down. So only some of the joint is ruined. The remainder I will duly cook properly (on a low heat) tomorrow.

At least the baby brussel sprouts were really great - perfectly cooked (which requires careful attention since they can easily go slightly mushy) and the half baked potatoes (sliced horizontally and criss crossed to create even cooking).

Kind of a breakfast-for-dinner thing tonight. Eggs and asparagus, with homemade Hollandaise.

Enchilada-Style Skillet Pork Chops | Swift Fresh Pork
That's very compatible with my low carb diet. I'm going to have to try this.

Steve, that looks fabulous! One of my fave food combinations are eggs and asparagus.

I'm just now looking through the fridge and freezer for something to throw on a plate - I'm thinking a slice or two of meatloaf, sautéed mushrooms and onions, and roasted asparagus. I bought 2 pounds of beautiful asparagus the other day at .79/lb, so have been nibbling on that a lot. Good thing I love it and don't tire of it easily.

What good things do you have planned for dinner?
This sounds really good CG!

We grilled burgers and served canned baked beans and potato chips. Dx reminded me this was a standard Saturday night supper when she was growing up. One of the boys would stand on the back steps under the awning while grilling burgers if it was rainy or snowy. Mom did not cook Saturday nights.

Roast beast with au jus, mashed taters and steamed broccoli. Perfect for a grey rainy day. Best of all, there are leftovers for tomorrow.

I have a pot of Dawg's tomato soup on the stove, and the SC will be having a BLAT sandwich with toasted sourdough, while I'll be having the same without the bread.

Yep, I have to give that recipe a go Munky!

That dinner looks just right Steve.

Kayelle surprised me with the BLAT. I usually have a ceremonial BLOAT with the first tomato from our garden.

I think I finally used the last of the recent freezer meatloaf....smothered it with sautéed mushrooms and scallions, with roasted sweet potato 'fries' and asparagus on the side. It was delish, and there's enough left for a mid morning breakfast tomorrow.

Fudge brownie ice cream comin' up.
