Dinner Thursday, 6-2-2016
Yesterday's planned fajitas will become reality tonight. I'll saute peppers and onions, then toss the sliced steak into the pan just to warm it gently. We'll have rice and beans, and I'll nuke a couple cobs of corn, cut the kernels off, and toss with Tajin. Himself is having his as fajitas on corn tortillas while I'll make a salad with mine. Craving greens.

What's on your menu for tonight?

Bacon wrapped, pork tenderloin medallion skewers with greek pasta salad, assorted pickleage...

I made 2 stuffed bell peppers yesterday with plans of having one for yesterday's dinner, and the other one for today. I just put the other one in the toaster oven to warm up, and will have a slice of garlic bread and a fresh fruit salad of a peach, plum and mango for sides. Not sure I'll be able to eat it all, we'll see. I'm pretty hungry. :yum:

We had homemade meatball subs with provolone and parm along with sliced cucumbers.

Crawfish etouffe and mirliton (chayote) and corn as a side.

Clam chowdah. I saw a local chef on the noon news making it, and it sounded good.

Your dinner looks good Medtran. So that's what happens with that cooler full of bright red mudbugs Craig was sharing on another thread.

I grilled pork chops. Barely used more than a spoon full or two of the Asian Ginger sauce I made yesterday, so I used more of it as a finishing sauce on the chops. Sliced cucumbers alongside and I made a gorgonzola blue cheese dressing for cole slaw. There's cantaloupe for later if I'm feeling peckish.

We recently made a run to Costco, so tonight it was four of their stellar loin lamb chops from Australia. Ohh, how we love those. I pan fried them on all four sides with HdP, garlic and salt.
Our neighbor brought us a "just right size garden zucchini", and I did a little casserole with saute' onion, salsa and lots of grated cheese, finished under the broiler.

Dang it Kay. I keep meaning to get some lamb chops from Costco, but by the time we get to the meat counter, I've about had it. DH is dancing around picking out wine, and I just want to load stuff up and go home.

Mmm, lamb chops. I've never pan fried them before. That's one skill I'm trying to develop...pan frying lamb chops, pork chops, steaks. I grill or broil those cuts of meat. I still have 2 lamb chops in the freezer that I marinated fresh for 3 hours, then froze. They look almost black when frozen. I'm hoping they cook up nice. I've never marinated, then froze meat before. The lamb chop marinade was just a simple olive oil, minced garlic, rosemary, lemon juice, sage, salt and pepper marinade. I'm eager to see how it broils up.

The reason I marinated and froze these chops is because I don't know what I want for dinner some nights and usually thaw and marinate a chop for only an hour before broiling it. I marinated these fresh lamb chops for 4 hours before freezing them, for more taste...hopefully.
