What's for dinner? Monday 7-18-16

I made a chicken salad this morning and intended to have it on lettuce wraps for dinner, but my romaine went south on me. Fortunately I have spinach, so a scoop of the chicken salad will be on a bed of spinach instead.

Sliced Granny Smith apple and cucumber will also be on the plate. Hot day today, so I'm glad the cooking part of this meal was done this morning.

What's on your plate?

I'm roasting a pork sirloin roast on the grill with a rub. Steamed broccoli so I can say I ate my veggies.

Fresh tuna steaks seared after being marinaded in a mix of sugar, rice wine vinegar and tamari for a short while. Carrot puree with sweet onion, ginger, mirin, white wine (supposed to be saki, but we didn't have any). Wasabi mashed potatoes. Spinach sauteed with some mostly cooked onions and just a touch of sesame oil.

Great minds think alike Andy!

I'm doing the very same thing but using Montreal Steak Seasoning on my pork roast, thanks to Rick's idea about using it on pork. We're having steamed broccolini cuz I like it better. I might do a spud on the grill for the SC too.

That's one pretty colorful plate Med!!

I went to Ruby Tuesday today for lunch and ordered the Mediterranean Chicken Salad. It was HUGE! I had about a third of it and will finish the rest up for dinner tonight.

Thunderstorms rolling through around dinnertime, so it's indoor cooking. Beef fajitas, which we haven't done it quite a while.

I made a sort of 1970's style casserole. I had some chicken to use up, so I cubed it and cooked it in some olive oil and salt/pepper in the cast iron skillet. Then I combined it in a Pyrex casserole pan with a can of Campbell's Golden Mushroom soup and a can of Campbell's Cream of Chicken along with some cooked egg noodles and a can of peas. Splash of hot sauce to kick it up a notch.

Served with a salad and some French bread.

I am living in food hell...salmon, mixed veggies, and apple slices for my mom (I eat what she doesn't finish); same for my dad by swapped the apple slices for a tossed salad. I so MISS my spices and my vinegars and greens, greens, greens. Mom can't have greens because of the Vit K issue. And, I miss REAL eggs!!!! Waaaaahhhh! I miss being creative in the kitchen!!!! I hate 1% fat cottage cheese. And, Lactose-free milk...thinking I need to get a small fridge for me in the basement...

I've got OCD--Obsessive Chicken Disorder!
