Official Dinner Thread for Monday the 16th©

On this bright and sunny but relatively cold day we're having a dinner of chili con carne and corn muffins with a side salad.

What's going to be on your socially distant table today?

We recently subscribed to Misfits Market and are more than pleased.

As a result, we'll be having broccoli "coins" to make use of the wonderfully thick stems of the broccoli we received, having already eaten the crown. Main dish will be chicken breasts stuffed with fresh thyme. Opening the box and smelling the fragrance of the thyme was awesome. Pickled red beets (also Misfits) as another side and blueberry pie for dessert.

Raining here (we need it badly) but it matches my mood. I have a pot of Pork Pisole simmering on the stove and it smells wonderful.

Crab ravioli made with what was leftover the last time we had stone crab claws with a red bell pepper sauce. Garden salad before.

I've dont that a few times and also got a surprise box for my daughter. Its fun. Its kinda like chopping yourself when you receive the box.


As far as what I had tonight, Spring rolls and Egg foo Young using Just Eggs

Thanks for the giggle Med. It was a typo but now that I think about it...

Inspired by CG's supper several nights ago, I made chicken piccata and served it over whole grain penne. We also had a green salad. I am really liking the addition of sorrel and mustard greens to the salad. Homemade vinaigrette as usual. I would have taken pictures, but by the time I made a mess of serving it, it wasn't very photogenic. It was still tasty and will go into our rotation.

Thanks for another recommendation, Katie. Just subscribed to Misfits Market and my first delivery might be this Saturday. With the confirmation of first order was a request for referrals. If a new subscriber uses the code COOKWME-PH8QTO they get a 25% discount their first box and I get 25% off my next one.

So if you're tempted to join, feel free to use the code I mentioned above or ask Katie for hers. I'd of asked her for it if I knew about it beforehand.

Aw, thanks taxy! I love piccata sauce no matter what the protein is.


We nibbled on a relish selection while waiting for the corned beef and cabbage to cook. In my case, though, it's more like corned beef and carrots. Still waiting for dinner to settle before I have my dessert of rye bread with some of the potlikker. Click image for larger version

We are more than pleased. I'd give you my code, too. Love Misfits.

We had leftover ham & cabbage from Sunday's lunch. Just as good as it was Sunday.
