Jan. 31, 2019 - National Eat Brussel Sprouts Day Dinner

Today is the day to celebrate everybody's favorite veggie. Check out the recipes here:

It's National 'Eat Brussel Sprouts' Day- Here's Why They're Great

It's also the day that Hell has frozen over:

The polar vortex is another one of those things coming down from Canada that we have to endure, like Justin Bieber.

Tonight's dinner will be chicken tenders in a lemon / shallot / white wine sauce, orzo, and roasted cauliflower.

Breakfast (well, food after work at 9 AM for me) was eel and a small assorted sushi plate.

I had a couple of very interested companions looking on.

"National Eat Brussel Sprouts Day Dinner" That's enough to ruin my appetite.

Be back later.

BT, BAHAHA!!! Love your dining companions there.
And let me also add, that you and my DH would get along famously.
That looks a meal that he would sit down to

Well, I don't have any Brussel Sprouts in the house,
but we do eat them often...

TS, I'm sure that you'll be hearing alot of booing and hissing
coming from the other regular folk here at DC

I'm truly not sure what I'll be making for our dinner this evening.
It's been a long work 10-12 days for us two, not fun at all.
So I'll be looking for some sort of comfort food... maybe just dessert
(and Wine of course there must always be Wine for moi)
I just pulled an Apple Crostata out of the hot box
and have some Ice Cream in the Deep Freeze

No problem, as I'm wearing my Nomex underwear today.

I actually have Nomex underwear... and a Nomex race suit.

I hope I don't need them to cook my chicken for chicken tacos tonight. That would be quite a grease fire

Leftovers here, again.

Seems they would have National BS day in the fall, when they are harvested most.

Now that I have visions of devil balls out of my head, I can think about dinner.


We're having our classic favorite dinner tonight. Pan fried bacon wrapped Filet Mignon , loaded baked spuds and glorified salads.

I'll take your little devil balls, Kayelle. We'll show them the love.

Brussels sprouts are round, like little green Martian baseballs. Baseball! Today is like a fresh breath of spring - the equipment truck left for Goodyear, AZ today! But no peanuts or pretzels or Cracker Jack here. Instead, with temperatures topping off in the mid-teens, I made a quick pot of soup, a recipe I pull out about once every four or five years. I start with this Lipton Cream of Broccoli Soup recipe, but: I use fresh broccoli instead of frozen; I get the Lipton mix with no chicken, instead poaching a boneless/skinless breast; I sub 1 1/2 cups chicken broth/stock for the milk.
