Dinner plans 7/28/15?

Notice how I carefully avoided naming a potentially wrong day?

I am firing up the grill in a while. Will grill three items; some bratwurst to be served for dinner tonight with sauerkraut, a lone green chile to see how to roast my own chiles, even though DH cringed at the thought of harvesting so young a chile, and some pork tenderloin in a bulgogi marinade for tomorrow nights supper.

What's cooking at your place?

I haven't been feeling well today, so it's will be an easy dinner. We had beef tacos last night, so we'll have taco salad tonight with the leftover seasoned beef.

A friend posted an easy old fashioned cream of tomato soup recipe on FB, apparently it was quite popular in various restaurants back in the day. I'm giving that a shot. We also have some veggies and dips to clean up.

We're taking some finger sandwiches and wine in a picnic cooler to the Hollywood Bowl tonight. Got 4 free tickets from a friend for tonight's philharmonic concert. For free tickets I don't mind paying $20 for parking... :)))

The stuffed mushrooms I made a couple of nights ago were too salty. I saved the leftovers so I could doctor them up and make a better tasting meal out of them.

So, some tomato and rice and we should be good to go.

Shrimp salad with some ripe olives, cucumber and tomato slices on the side.

I made some low carb chocolate mousse for later and tossed half of it in the freezer to see if it gets rock hard or has a texture similar to ice cream. Research, research, research!

Joey, those both look mouth watering good.

Tonight we had grilled chicken kabobs marinated in a lemon garlic and tarragon sauce. Also sliced zukes marinated the same. And corn cobs and sliced cukes.

Those crepes look delicious Joey.

I marinated some strips of strip loin and stir fried it. I made a sauce by deglazing the pan with some dry vermouth, adding the marinade, reducing, and finally adding some cream (It was very, very good). I cut up some cooked baby potatoes and fried them. I served some leftover cucumber salad and nuked, frozen, corn niblets. That was quite good, even though neither of us liked the cucumber salad.

Love the look of that Joey!

It reminds me of the great philosophy "Life is short, eat dessert first".

We had Moqueca tonight, which is a Brazilian seafood stew that uses coconut milk and seafood stock for the base. Best of all, it takes very little time to make.

Wonderful looking dinners guys! Steve, Moqueca is on my must-try list of dishes this autumn. I also plan on trying Bacalao. For now, with garage-sale prepping and garden-weeding, I'm falling back on TnT meals.


I wanted to make sausage-beans-and-collard-greens for supper. The store at the corner was out of their sale-priced fresh greens. Plan B was go out. We ended up at our favorite little Thai restaurant. Himself and I split an order of Golden Bags, then he had House Seafood Fried Rice, I had Pineapple Rice.
