What's for dinner? Friday, 1-15-16

I have some tortillas, refried beans, Mexican rice, cilantro, and several kinds of cheese leftover from my Mexican feast a couple of days ago. I'm thinking of building a burrito for dinner, and that will be the last of it. Until I get the craving again.

What's going on in your kitchen today?

I saw a beautiful picture of pork ragu over polenta in Bon Appetit. Only rarely does my dinner ever look like the food porn in the recipes in the magazines, but I decided to give this a try tonight. I've never made pork ragu or polenta before. I'm just hoping it doesn't become "food abuse".

It's Tex Mex night at the Whiska's hacienda. Just can't decide if I want a burrito including refried beans or tacos with refried beans on the side. Or both.

The crock potted vegetable soup, which turned out somewhat thick, over mashed potatoes.

I made a pot roast in the crockpot today -- with the packs of Hidden Valley Ranch and Au Jus Gravy on top of the chuck roast along with a stick of butter, peppercinis, and some taters/carrots. I added a couple cups of water too.

After we ate, I dumped in a couple of cans of mixed veggies, tomato juice, and a little marinara sauce. So tomorrow we're having beef stew.
