What's for Dinner? Tuesday 9/13/2016

Very simple meal tonight: a burger with an egg on top. There was a salad, too, but I finished that while the burger was cooking.

I've done this often enough!

I grilled some boneless skinless chicken thighs seasoned with Weber's Kickin' Chicken seasoning blend. Steamed green beans made it a more healthy meal.

Picadillo, black beans, maduros, and rice. No potatoes in our picadillo this time as someone used them all for his pot roast and I didn't notice until it was time to cut 1 up for the dish. pics to follow

Romaine salad with bacon/egg/black olives/tomato/Pecorino Romano, and shrimp scampi style with fettuccine. Himself is in heaven. He's being rewarded greatly for doing some much needed plumbing repairs. I pay off in food.

Great looking and sounding dinners tonight!

I made a big pot of My shortcut Chili Verde tonight with some of the Hatch chili's I prepared and froze. I'm about to dish it up and top the bowls with grated cheese, cilantro, chopped onion and lime wedges. I'll fire toast some flour tortilla's for the SC. Ole'

For DH (the far plate that's almost finished ) :
Tomato, Cuc and Onion salad with Anchovies
For my plate:
Green Salad with Cuc and crumbled Gorgonzola Cheese
both salads are dressed in Homemade Vinaigrette.
On both plates:
Trader Joe's Spizzico di Pizza; his with more anchovies and fresh Basil,
mine have just the Basil.
... and a glass of vino for moi (what?! it was after 12 o'clock) :

Oh yeah, dinner, well, I do have a BIG pot of Beef Stew that I made yesterday along with freshly made steamed white rice;
we may or may not get to it tonight.
But I do know that there will be dessert, imitation Samoa Girl Scout cookies from Walmart (don't knock it they're cheap and good )

Aldi's has Fake Scout cookies that are so close to the real deal I really don't want to spend $$$ on the authentic ones. However, our daughter is a co-leader of a troop with her BFF, so we bite the bullet and order 4 or 5 boxes every year.

The Keebler versions are really good knock-offs, too. Then again, Little Brownie Bakers are a subsidiary of Keebler. I always thought that GSUSA switched off between Little Brownie Bakers and ABC Cookies each year. Turns out each local council decides on which baker to use. Here's the LA Times article that shows which baker makes GS cookies in your area, and how each of the different baker's cookies compare to the other.

Flat iron steak seasoned with Montreal steak seasoning and seared in our cast iron grill pan. The steak turned out perfectly and tasted great. We'd never tried the steak seasoning and were quite pleased with the flavor profile.

Had baked potatoes and a plate of big slices of fresh tomatoes from the garden. Unfortunately they are almost gone, but are some of the best we've ever grown. Will definitely plant this variety next year.
