Before there was beer can chicken, we would use pineapple juice in the same way.

Beautiful pics Joey and GG. Everyone's dinners sound so good this evening.

I had a light dinner of pan seared scallops, simply done with just s and p, and lemon juice. The scallops were wonderful - sweet and tender. Roasted asparagus on the side.

Oh boy, you seared those scallops just perfectly Cheryl.
Andy, did you like that simmer sauce?

We got to babysit little Cheyenne at her house this afternoon so we went to our favorite Cafe' for dinner before we headed back home. I had perfectly cooked pink calf liver with onions, bacon, and apples slices and even the mixed veggies were cooked perfectly. SC had a good Taco Salad. They fill our wine glasses so full it's hard to believe they can walk when they carry them. Love that!

Kind of a lazy day today. Slept in a bit and got a late start to going grocery shopping, which caused me to get home quite late in the afternoon.

In view of the loose schedule, our supper was a bit of "clean out the fridge" with pan-fried pork sausage as the entree. We finished the leftover freezer corn and made a sizeable dent in the leftover braised red cabbage.

Our market had a special on house bulk pork sausage and I decided to try it. Very, very good. I should have bought more.

TB had a grilled steak with raw veggies. I didn't really eat because my morning smoothie is really filling me up! I am now making a tuna melt with micro greens salad.

What's for dinner? Tuesday 2-23-16

Leftover broccoli beer cheese soup. I have a real problem cooking for two, I tend to cook for eight or more.

I would like a bite of S&P's, GG's, and Cheryl's meals, please.

Tonight's dinner was a hit with both of us. We can add it to the rotation. However, it is kinda mild and needed a fair amount of salt. I'd add some green chilies next time. I only used half the jar.

Since the Balsamic pork roast made 4 portions and I have to eat them all, I am pork roasted out after already eating 2 portions in 2 days. Note to self: cut up pork roast next time! So tonight I am just having hot dogs cooked under the broiler.

I'd freeze the pork, but I don't think the baked potatoes would freeze very well.

Sounds like good cookin' across the country. We are rock stars in our kitchens!

I had a package of shrimp crying for release from the freezer, so I used them for my maiden attempt at shrimp tacos. Made a really yummy Baja sauce to dress the tacos with. It was a bit on the mild side, so I nearly doubled the seasonings. Made a small batch of black beans and rice, too. Added in some of the grilled corn that Himself made this summer and I cut from the cob and froze.

It was a winner dinner. I can see making this again.
