What's for dinner? - Sun, Mar 30, 2014

The temperature here in Minne-snow-ta finally got to 60F today, and it feels wonderful. I know some of you are probably rolling your eyes right about now, but the last 60 degree day we had was back in early October. Almost 6 MONTHS ago!

Of course there is snow in the forecast again for tomorrow, but nevertheless, I am enjoying the one day that actually feels like spring.

Today I chipped away a path in the remaining ice on the deck so I can get to the grill. Dinner will be grilled steak, baked potato, and Brussels sprouts.

It's not quite that warm here. It's been rainy and cool all day.

I have the beginnings of a lamb and okra stew on the stove tonight that we will have over rice.

Home made Chinese tonight. Using lots of leftovers. Leftover steak for beef and broccoli, leftover chicken wings with an Asian sauce, piece of pork tenderloin for spring rolls, and some mushroom fried rice....

Oh man, I am running behind getting a slab or ribs on the grill.
Someone wanted a step-by-step tutorial on rust bluing on a pistol forum and that took me waaaay longer than I expected it to.
I better get those babies rubbed down and on the grill.

No eye-rolling here Steve, I can just imagine how nice it must be to finally have some warm weather up where you are!

No cooking here, it's a nibbling kind of day. Avocado, cherry tomato and red onion salad, TJ's eggplant hummus, and pita bread.

An absolutely HUGE pork chop - the butcher must have thought I looked hungry! Grilled on top of the stove with courgettes, grilled tomatoes, baby potatoes. Hadn't any apple sauce so used a spoonful of Ikea gooseberry jam. I always think pork needs something a bit sweet and fruity.

For "afters" a lemon mousse-y thing from the dessert cabinet at the Co-op supermarket

It does look really good, doesn't it?
