Dinner Friday 8-23-2019

Well, I finally did it. I made Minnesota Tater Tot hotdish for the first time. That's what the Elders are eating tonight. Dad'll have a tossed salad, Mom will have some fruit.

Got some fresh fish at the supermarket today. Salmon for me and haddock for SO. Not sure of sides. Maybe broccoli or zucchini.

Got a fresh lamb rack from the supermarket today - cut it up into rib chops for grilling on the BBQ tonite, after marinating all day - as per the recipe I separately posted this morning - see thread "Lamb Rib Chops at their best".

To serve with Caesar salad.


These chops are delicious & so quick & easy to do - marinade recipe is my own - a short one, but does extremely well as a flavoring agent for these tender chops.

Curious as to what this is. Is this recipe similar to what you make?

We are going to our favorite dinner, dancing/band venue, in Ranchos de Taos. I'm having the flat iron steak wedge salad. Our favorite two-stepping band is playing, the Rifters. Dh's birthday is tomorrow, so getting an early start on celebrating.

Tater Tots hot dish sounds like a throwback to the 50's. For us tonight's dinner was cheeseburgers on the grill, oven fries.

While I'm not a fan of croutons, I do enjoy them fresh made. I finished off the last of homemade white wheat bread and made some tonight. Topped our salads with them (ain't they purdy?) and had them with the last of our flat bread pizzas from Monday.

We ordered from our favourite Indian resto. We had lamb samosas, onion bhajis, vegetable pakora, chicken tika, Madras chicken, and two roti. We drank Wernesgrüner, a nice German beer with that. I really enjoyed that supper. We have yummy leftovers.

That would be nice - we may visit Montreal again within the next year or two.
I lived in Montreal for a few years in the mid to late 70's - loved many of the fabulous restaurants in old Montreal - but my favorite was "Chez La Mere Michele" near the main downtown core - which is likely no longer in existence.

That tater tot dish looks super good. Kind of like a cottage pie using tater tots instead of mash.

I chuckle anytime I think about tater tots because my son, when he was little, called them tatter toots. I miss those days.

Anyway, my dinner last night was a shrimp quesadilla and I made something for myself I haven't had in a long time - sweet potato tempura. Got hooked on that years ago when I tried some at a Japanese restaurant.

This one could be it though - except the location would have been changed:
