Changed my mind I remembered that I had chopped some onion and red and green bell peppers for the sweet and sour meatballs I intended to make yesterday. DH really wanted Swedish meatballs, so I went in that direction instead.

So tonight, I started with Rachael Ray's Salsa Stoup (thicker than soup but thinner than stew lol) and added two diced chicken breasts and ten diced tomatillos, along with Mexican oregano, ancho chile powder and cumin. I made the corn bread, too, with the corn and half of a large red jalapeño from the garden; the other half is in the stoup.

DH is from the East Coast and keeps asking for "Tomato Pie"
Never heard of it, so I wing it...
Not quite it, but close and tasty, per my husband anyways.

Tomato pie is big in Utica NY. I was told that the Italian housewives used to make it on bread baking day for an after school snack or a quick meal. It is still offered by the slice in most of the local bakeries.

Mmmm....looks delicious, GG and kgirl!

My daughter and grandson came over today and we ended up going out for a late lunch at our favorite Mexican restaurant. That did us all good for dinner - I'm still full.

I LOVE Rachael's Stoups! I hadn't heard of that one, I'll go look that up, since we're coming up on stoup season I make her Stuffed Peppers Stoup and DH just goes nuts for it.

Mouth watering meals here tonight!

I'm doing a "prime rib" take on a tri tip in the oven tonight, because it's still a pain in the knee to get down the stairs to the grill.
I seasoned the trimmed tri tip well with salt/garlic/Adobo and oil. Then I folded it in half and secured with silicone bands to make a ball of meat. It was 3 lbs roasted at 5 min. per pound=15 min. at 500 degrees, and then turned the oven turned off for 90 min without peeking. Perfectly rare to our liking.
I also made a side of broccoli, saute with bacon/onions/red bell pepper and finished with balsamic glaze. Roasted Tater Tots finished of the meal for my man..I'm on low carbs diet.

Good looking meals GG and Kgiril.

We had meatballs, mashed potatoes, rødkål (Danish red cabbage), Cranberry Fire (a spicy cranberry jelly that a friend's company makes), and gravy. The meatballs are a recipe that I have cobbled together and I'm still tweaking it. Those meatballs are really yummy. Thanks GG for letting me know that I can bake the meatballs and don't have to flip them. It works a treat.

Good looking meals here tonight - as usual.

Boy, am I beat. One day down, and a fairly successful day it was. Since I'm running the garage sale tomorrow too, I sent Himself for a huge box of Broasted chicken and an order of Jo-Jo Potatoes. Nuked some peas from our freezer as another side. We filled up tonight and have more than enough chicken and potatoes for another round tomorrow.
