Dinner 12-17-2019 ~ Still Stormy Tuesday - turning blue.

Today is soup weather. While I will be starting a pot of beef-barley soup shortly, that's tomorrow's supper. Tonight will be something a little spicy: salsa chicken with melted cheddar cheese on a bed of rice, with black beans and corn on the side.

What will you be tempting your tummy with tonight?

Not feeling energetic, I went for my pantry "too lazy or just don't care today" shelf and pulled off a package of Nissin Chow Mein, took some pork gyoza out of the freezer and called that dinner..

At least the bread pudding for dessert is real..

Today's episode of foods I cook when SO is away, is all about chicken fried steak with sausage gravy and Tater Tots. Something green will lessen the guilt.

Dh has been jonesing for chicken fried steak with white gravy. He will get it some cause Omaha Steaks just sent me the CF steaks.

I'm fixing a green chile, ground beef goulash over mashed potatoes tonight.

Sort of a pho/ramen noodle fusion bowl with Asian flavors marinated pork tenderloin, baby bok choy, radish, green onions, and jalapeno slices for Craig, with a little drizzle of sesame oil for me.

Ricotta pound cake for dessert after it cools a bit.

We just had a country omelette with feta and toast made from a really tasty, whole grain and sunflower seed bread.

One of my favorites -(after and before baking - in that order):

Chicken Enchiladas - with my home-made red enchilada sauce, and some Havarti chipotle/habanero cheese, topped with sour cream & scallions.

Actually, this is today's before baking pic - the one above was an older one, same colored cheese & made the same way, but not the Havarti chipotle habanero I used today.
Perhaps you noticed the red pigmentation in this one (from the interspersed speckles of chipotle), as opposed to the earlier photo which featured plain yellow cheese.

I had leftover chicken tenderloins, mashed potatoes, and a salad. Mom wanted a banana sandwich.
