What's for dinner? Thursday 12-7-17

I picked up a nice little (2.75 lb) tri tip at Albertsons yesterday, so that will be going on the Weber soon. Not sure of sides yet - I have some asparagus that needs to be used and a mango, so will probably have those.

What's on your menu?

We had Digiorno Thin crust spinach and garlic pizza.

I took tonight off so I could put up lights on the house tomorrow, so I'm heading off to the store now to pick up dinner.

I'm thinking about making littleneck clams in wine and herbs, with pasta and a baguette on the side.

If mussels look better, I'll sub them for the clams.
I went down to the demonstration, to get my fair share of abuse.

Italian small plates. Craig did all the prep and cooking. I helped with some of the putting together, presentation, and I made and canned the fig preserves for the crostini with the fig preserves, gorgonzola and prosciutto. The red bell caprese salad got a dressing of balsamic vinaigrette after the pic. The grilled asparagus, prosciutto bundies were dressed with a lemon juice vinaigrette.

Lazy day today. We can do this any time we wish. Retirement is awesome!

Did a small chuck roast in the crock-pot with onions, celery and baby carrots. We'll have mashed Yukon Gold taters and buttered baguette. Not sure if we'll have any dessert. I may just have a couple more slices of buttered baguette. However, there's a box of Klondike bars in the freezer that may have our names on it if dessert is crucial.

Spaghetti with meat sauce (spicy sausage), salads and garlic bread. My go-to dinner when I don't have a plan.

December 7th, "... a date will live in infamy."

We had an early start to the day (doctor's appointments again)
with no lunch... SO!

It was an early supper and off to bed early too
(well, after Big Bang Theory )

I went freezer diving and came up with a pack of my homemade
Paniolo (that's Hawaiian for Cowboy) Chili.
I made a fresh pot of rice, heated up the Chili and
served it all with diced Sweet White Onions and Shredded Cheese.

We still have a few Neiman Marcus Chocolate Chip Cookies, oh and
some fresh Milk for dessert later.

Dad had chili, burger, and salad. Mom had leftover pizza and cream of mushroom soup--added more beef stock and evap milk to the leftover stroganoff gravy. Voilà! CoM soup.

I'm in Vegas. It's still early here... well, 9PM. I have a suite with a kitchen, but nothing to cook. I may run around the corner to the Hard Rock for some good diner food. Decisions, decisions.
