What's for Dinner? Wednesday 8/10/16

Strip Steak, with a side of avocado and homemade aioli. A wonderful combination of delicious fats.

Temperature didn't get much above 70 here today, so cooking in the oven was an option. Shrimp and sausage paella with a garden salad.

Tomorrow is supposed to shoot up over 90, so the AC will go on in the morning. In anticipation, I made pasta salad today (won't cook pasta with the AC on if I can avoid it). Dinner will be something on the grill, pasta salad, and a green salad.

Looks fabulous, Steve.

Leftover black bean and corn salad from yesterday. Leftover shrimp as well, but I think I'll just nibble on it as is, rather than make another shrimp taco. I cubed up some nice cold watermelon and mango for a side.

Made a Cuban Picadillo recipe for the first time and served it over rice. We both liked it.

Thanks for the tip, Kayelle.

The elders had sweet and sour pork steak, jasmine rice, and steamed green beans from the "garden." I ate the rest of the beet-buttermilk soup I made yesterday. Mom had pears as well with her plate. She ate everything. The UTI meds must be working!

Oh I'm so pleased you both liked the Cuban Picadillo recipe also Andy. Something different, right?

What a beautiful picture Steve.

I pulled out a treasure zip lock bag from the freezer of Kaula pig and served it well heated on a bed of steamed spinach/snow peas. The Dragon Lady Sesame noodles (my first taste in a year..omg so good), along with cucumber/onion salad made a wonderful dinner without color worthy of a picture, but trust me it was good.

For myself, a Bleu Moon Burger: a beautiful Beef patty topped with grilled Mushrooms, Onions and Bleu Cheese with a side of Sweet Potato Fries, a dipper of Honey Mustard Sauce and a Chocolate Beer.
That's right, you read correctly my friends!
Prescott Brewing Company's Achocolypse Porter, MAN!
If ever you can get your hands on this beer, DO!
Oh, and the burger was good too

I made pan-fried cod sprinkled with Penzeys Trinidadian seasoning and confetti rice, along with a garden salad with roasted peppers and fresh mozzarella.

Good looking dinners tonight. You guys use a lot more seasoning blends than I do. I need to plan a trip to Penzeys.

I had some ground turkey that needed cooked. So I browned it up in some bacon fat. Cooked some fettuccine noodles. Melted some chive and onion cream cheese into the noodles with half and half, butter,garlic and Parmesan cheese. Mixed in the ground turkey. Served with salads. We both liked it. Next time I may throw in some sour cream too.
