Dinner time! Monday 11/10/14

I was going to do enchilada's for tonight, but got off to a late start.

We're having pan fried loin lamb chops, tri colored rice with mushrooms, and a green salad.

How bout you?

I made beef stock today so tonight I'm having a hash made from the vegetables and some of the meat. I will add some fresh chopped onion and a splash of Worcestershire sauce to the hash and top it with a poached egg.

I was going to make cheesy scalloped ham and potatoes, but the frozen ham was all freezer-burned, so I thawed some chicken thighs and made chicken enchiladas! Couldn't resist after all the talk about it today. I also made Mexican rice from a mix we had on hand for quick cooking nights.

I overbought perishables again and needed to use some up, so tonight's dinner was a salad of avocado, tomatoes, red onion, and spinach with Italian dressing, roasted sweet potato fries with cinnamon, and garlic bread.

It was good, but I would have rather had enchiladas.

I made hamburger onion pie, new and improved diabetic version.

I just left out the biscuit crust completely, and added shredded parm to the topping. It was better than before.

We cleaned out the leftovers because we leave on vacation tomorrow, and they are all gone! More often than not I've overcooked so much the week running up to vacation that his sister gets a few meals. Not this time (sorry Joy!)


Used up spinach and iceberg lettuce and tossed in a few odds-and-ends and called it salad. Himself had Italian sausage sauteed with green pepper and onion. I finished the last bit of chicken breast along with the beets and Brussels sprouts with grapes/apple/walnuts. We also had some of the last of the broccoli. There is a bit left that I'll finish with a dab of cheese once I get my few prep jobs done.

Looking forward to a lot of *SECing the next two weeks.

Tonight we had Mahi Mahi with a ginger-lime marinade, Asian cucumber salad, and sauteed green beans.

Definitely the "cleaning up"!

Looks like I needed one more day of leftovers. After number-crunching, miles-checking, construction-viewing and dilly-dallying, Himself figured we could leave Wednesday morning. "Morning" being the operative word here. I plan on firing up the coffee maker before 9:00 AM on Wednesday and wait for the groaning to start.
