Arrow Natn'l Wine & Cheese Day ~ July 25 2021 Dinner Plate

Yesterday, DH requested one of our "Snack Plates" supper.
I veto'd that, saying that we'd have it tomorrow, I already
had dinner started in the oven.

Today in my email inbox, what do I find?
An ad from Hickory Farms about National Wine & Cheese Day
and all of their specials!

I got us covered

What are you snacking on?

Tonight I tried out a couple of Danish recipes that I hadn't tried before. It was "krebinetter", breaded ground pork patties, and a potato salad with red onion, scallion greens, and lettuce. I didn't want to bother picking any chives, so I subbed the scallion greens. I didn't have any corn salad (a wild green, nothing to do with corn). So, I used some curly red lettuce and green crisp lettuce, both cut into 1-1.5 inch pieces. That has definite potential. It was pretty good, but I know I can improve it.

We had garden salads, followed by leftover beef in gravy and assorted veggies. No photo again because 1) it really wasn't photo-worthy and 2) I still can't open DC on my phone. "Access Denied" "Access Denied" I have no idea why I've been put in the time-out corner via phone...

Guessed it was soppressata before I read the description. I've made it, although not piccante (with hot red pepper).

The fat gets coarsely chopped and frozen, so it stays distinct when the casings are stuffed.

I've been having the same problem with the phone app all weekend. I cleared the cache and it works for a while and then starts having problems again. I might uninstall and reinstall it and see if that helps.

We had guests for dinner - two of DH's shipmates from his time in the Navy and their wives. One couple is from Seattle, Washington. They sold everything and are traveling in their specially outfitted van around the country.

DH smoked some pork shoulder and I made baked beans, coleslaw and watermelon-feta salad. I also made bruschetta for an appetizer - fresh pesto from garden herbs on toasted baguette slices topped with chopped tomatoes and Parmesan cheese. Everyone loved it. I love to make people happy with my food

Wine & cheese is something I usually do when I wake up at 3am and I can't get back to sleep. I usually toss in some charcuterie and crackers to go with. A full belly and a buzz from the wine will usually put me back to sleep by 4am.
