Retro deja vu

We're having a leftover casserole -- you know, the old-fashioned kind of noodle/ground beef/sour cream & cream cheese layered type. Probably add a few gourmet greens salad and a nice Cab just to remind myself what century we're in.

Note: I collect cookbooks and especially enjoy the ones from the 50s - 70s. I have almost complete sets of some of the Favorite Recipes of Home Economics Teachers books published by Favorite Recipes Press. I guess it's a nostalgia type thing. Great graphics and a real peek into a bygone era.

Most of the recipes sound pretty atrocious these days, but some just scream COMFORT FOOD. This recipe was from a softcover book entitled The Ground Beef Cookbook -- all contributed by home ec teachers from around the U.S.

I put a pork tenderloin in the slow cooker last night. I shredded it and browned it with a head of minced garlic. Added some flour and a bunch of chimayo red chile powder, the pork broth and let it simmer for a couple hours. It's thick and tasty.

I'll throw some of my chile in a bowl with beans, cheese, sour cream, lettuce, diced tomato and fritos on top. I'll be having a frito upside down pie. And though my dinner sounds good, I still would rather be at kadesma's.

dh has taken Aidan on his first camping trip overnight! It'll be a quiet evening here. Too bad I destroyed the kitchen today, I'll be spending some of my relaxation time cleaning.

Tonight, I'll be dining in Portland Oregon and have no clue what's on the menu wherever it is I'll be eating. Hopefully, it'll be good

I breaded boneless skinless chicken breast tenders in bread crumbs and fried them, had green beans with diced bacon, deviled eggs, biscuits with jelly, and then cubed and boiled potatoes and added lots of butter and finely shredded cheddar cheese and some chives to it.. decided to try something diff. with the potatoes.. lol. It turned out pretty good.

Hmm, dark and stormy sounds like chocolate to me. Something very rich and decadent. Right up my alley.
