I made meat balls. I would have liked to have served it potatoes, but I didn't have enough spoons to peel potatoes, etc., so I nuked some brown basmati rice I was going to make a tossed salad, but by the time I had put the meat balls in the oven, I had completely run out of spoons, so I heated a Tasty Bites Kashmir Spinach for the veg. We hadn't tried that before and won't be buying it again. Not awful, but we didn't much like it.

Finished my tex-mex hot and sour soup. Wish I had made a bigger pot of it.

I made pork chile verde today, with chile peppers and tomatillos from the freezer and cilantro from the garden. Served it over rice with lime juice, mozzarella cheese and tortilla strips. It was so good, I had a second helping And the flavor base looked so good I had to take a picture

Roasted up a juicy petite sirloin roast last night. Tonight I'm breaking out my Krups plastic meat slicer for the first time to shave the leftover roast into thin slices for Au Ju and french fries and coleslaw. So what if it's plastic and kinda cheaply made. It's foldable for storage. Krups no longer makes these, but I got one new, unused off eBay for $56 shipping included. It replaces my similar Krups that's at least 30 years old. The blade got dull, couldn't find a replacement. I love it!

Oh man, I would love to have a foldable meat slicer. I could use a meat slicer, but I just don't have the space for a kitchen toy small appliance that big.

I too don't have a lot of extra kitchen storage space. The 2 parts that slide on the fold out tray are themselves foldable, which is kinda neat. I found a cabinet to store it in. That plastic tray clips onto the back to catch the sliced meat.

Since we ran out of leftovers yesterday, Himself did a food run today. We both had more than enough carbs finishing up bread-as-toast, so no pizza. Instead, he got a 12-count order of Broasted chicken and an order of Jo-Jo potatoes. I also nuked up a half-bag of frozen peas. We have 5 pieces of chicken left that we can nibble on somewhere between home and OH, although I'm also taking 3 sandwiches for Road Food. IF we end up driving straight through (625 miles, about 11 hours if I'm not always requesting a pit stop ), we can always heat the chicken at Loverly's home. Good thing she isn't working either Monday or Tuesday!
