What's for dinner? Saturday April 30, 2016

Can't believe we're almost into May already!

I'll be browning and braising that bone in pork chop that I took out of the freezer yesterday, and decided not to have. Probably steamed cauliflower with butter and seasonings will accompany.

What will be on your plate?

We're going to have spaghetti and meatballs, steamed mixed veggies and homemade baguette with lots of garlic butter. Iced tea to wash it all down and chocolate/mint-filled chocolate pizzelles for dessert.

Movie popcorn and Arnold Palmers. We're hitting up The Jungle Book matinee in 3D at the local theater.

Tonight will probably be mac and cheese with peas and tuna.

Grilled chicken thighs that have been marinated in Kirby mojo with black beans and rice. Avocado slices with red onion and lime juice.

This morning I made our beef marinade for a 1/2 flat piece of brisket. I'm still deciding between the oven and the Egg to cook it tomorrow.
If you're gonna make a Key Lime pie, you have to use real Key Limes!

I braised some lamb shanks (searing them off first, then adding chopped carrots and onions, tinned tomatoes and stock, bayleaf, piri piri seasoning to the casserole), along with baked potato and steamed runner beans.

(Also baked a whole beetroot to have with a dish tomorrow).
