3-25-2020 - What's on your table?

I've grilled some pork steaks with lemon. Have some fried cabbage as a side. The aforementioned bread pudding for dessert.

Didn't realize there were 4 chops in the package, which means there is more for tomorrow. Have sweet potatoes, so we're good.

So, today both of my grocery orders did arrive, the ones that were supposed to be delivered yesterday. As expected, we were exhausted from dealing with that. Especially exhausting because of having to disinfect stuff. We ordered out from a local Greek resto. DH got a "Luna special pizza" and I got a "2 stick souvlaki platter". That was tasty and satisfying. I do enjoy meat on a stick.

I made a pot of a kinda minestrone with meatballs. Sadly, we had no crusty bread. Still tasty!

I made a one dish (well, almost) meal today, starting with a small butternut. I was going to make an Indian dish, but I had a bunch of basil I trimmed, that I wanted to use up, so I made it Italian. I started with making a tomato sauce, sautéing a large chopped onion in olive oil, then adding a bunch of minced garlic, and a can of tomatoes, and a generous half cup of chopped basil. This cooked in slow cooker mode of the IP, while getting the butternut, mushrooms, and sausage ready. I added the butternut, 1 c of brown lentils, 1/2 c of whole oats, and 4 1/2 c water, using fish sauce as the salt source - something I use a lot in Italian dishes. After about 2 1/2 hours cooking (and adding a little more water), I added the cooked sweet Italian sausage and mushrooms, cooked another half hour, then turned it off, and added another half cup of chopped basil, and served it, with some grated Locatelli.

We had soups. I had some LO tom yum soup and she had a TJs dumpling soup. We shared a tray of TJs dumplings with chicken and broth in them.

Last of the tamales from the freezer, with some of the black beans left over from a few days ago.

We had roasted potatoes and onions with a chopped zucchini and yellow quash thrown in, scrambled eggs and cheese, maple sausage links, and a salad. Mini chocolate chip muffins for dessert.
