I'm cooking ahead for Cinco de Mayo, so I had two crockpots running today one with pork for shredded pork enchiladas and one with spicy pinto beans.

So, tonight I taste tested and adjusted the seasonings. Tomorrow I will fry up some rice and make the enchilada sauce.

After partying on Wednesday, I won't have to cook, just heat and eat.

P.S. The pork was boneless ribs.

No rib here.. but it is pork... we are having ham and scalloped potatoes. The veg depends on what's in the freezer and I may make myself a spinach salad. With the warm weather I need to use it up before what's left in the garden bolts.

I bought some Silver Queen corn today - the first I'd seen this season so I creamed that, cooked some baby lima beans, sliced tomatoes and grilled a sirloin steak. It was delicious.

Had some lovely lobster meat left over from husband's "Monster Lobster" birthday dinner extravaganza last month (one 4-pounder & one 3-pounder for the 2 of us) that I had frozen in the leftover lemon butter. Thawed & heated it up, added some dried Italian Seasoning & some granulated garlic, & served it over some Monterey Bay brand Lobster Ravioli. Topped with some fresh chopped Italian flat-leaf parsley & some grated parmesan cheese & served with a nice green salad of baby greens from the farmers market. Delicious, & a fitting end to the meat from those gigantic lobsters!

We did have the ribs tonight with corn and salad (we all opted for not potato) and they were very good. DH grilled them just right! I helped myself to the last cob of corn.....can't get enough it!

Then I made some of Aldi's brand of Spanish Rice (like Rice-a-Roni's version) and transferred the tomatoes and mushrooms to it (it called for a can of tomatoes, and I couldn't see adding more). We had it with corn. So we had kind of a pseudo-Italian/Spanish meal.
