Stirling is making a very large pot of pasta sauce. I sous-chefed. We are both pooped out, so we ordered Greek food.

Leftovers - and it had better be the last of them! One brat with kraut, breaded pork chops, mashed potatoes. Also made fresh veggies - roasted cauliflower, carrots, and broccoli. All divied up between the two of us.

WOW..what great dinners tonight! It's always fun to celebrate great cooking with friends.

We had a favorite dinner tonight..
Loin lamb chops seasoned with HdP/garlic/salt and pan fried on all four sides in the carbon steel skillet till med. rare. We love Coleman's mint sauce with them.
Steamed broccoli to just crisp tender and seasoned with butter/garlic/salt/Accent
"Onion Beefy Orzo" is one of our favorite quick sides..
1 cup Orzo/2 cups water/1 envelope of Lipton Onion Soup/ simmered for 15 min. and chopped fresh parsley from our tiny herb garden added at the last. It's an easy dinner that makes us both happy.

What's a Mexican hot dog?

We had cjicken chop suey with bean sprouts, water chestnuts, bamboo shoots, carrot, onion and snap peas, witj long grain white rice and butter, and store-bought sweet and sour sauce. For desert, a cold, ripe pear. Sadly, we were out of soy sauce.

Andouille Potato Soup

Had to mince the sausage first though. Milk was the beverage, not a soup ingredient.

I made this:

… a few days ago and left it to 'marry'.

I had a date this afternoon with the Neighborhood-Gals to play Mexican Train, never heard of it and it was fun!

Knowing that I wouldn't have time to prepare dinner for us two, I made a fresh pot of steamed White Rice prior to leaving and once it was the appropriate hour, I reheated the Stew and it was ONO (delicious in Hawaiian )

Thanks Ross. I think you'd enjoy that easy side dish. Sometimes I stir in some frozen peas after it's done, to just warm them.
