Official© Dinner Thread for Thursday the 7th

Here we are enjoying siete de Mayo. It was a bright sunny day today. I spent some time cutting up and packaging 10 pounds of pork butt for the freezer. None of it is for tonight's dinner.

Dinner tonight will be shredded beef ragu served over handmade fettuccine noodles.

What have you planned for dinner tonight?

Banh mi pork meatball sammies with carrot/radish slaw and Sriracha mayo.

I made on the fly individual banana puddings with some bananas that were in the freezer for dessert. Browning the meringue now.

Didn't have quite enough bananas, so I added some banana liqueur to the pudding.

I made frikadeller and a salad. I didn't have enough spoons to deal with cooking potatoes or some other carb, so we had it with chunks of whole grain wheat baguette. We also had red wine with it. I really like those frikadeller. So does Stirling. Danish heritage is showing its face.

Tonight I'm doing "Egg Roll In a Bowl" loosely based on this recipe. I like to add some rice wine vinegar and some bean sprouts too.

I hear there's a meat shortage, but SC just scored this gorgeous hunk of cow. It's a small end 6 lb. 2 bone prime rib roast and check out the price at $4.67 lb.

Nice deal, Kayelle and Souschef!

I pulled a container of chicken pot pie with biscuit crust out of the freezer. It was still fine even though I nuked it to warm it up - the crust wasn't gluey as I thought it might be. Sides were salad and broccoli. Cleaning out the fridge/freezer since I'm heading out to shop tomorrow, so we might eat up the remaining coffee ice cream later. :

I'm tired, grumpy, uninspired, and did I saw grumpy?

I made what I call one of my cheat meals.
Dead easy!
Tyson's Crispy Chicken Strips,
basically Fried Chicken Tenderloins,
and chopped, raw Veggie plate.
The dips are for Moi, Ranch & Thai Sweet Chili Sauce,
and the Tomatoes are for DH.
Plantation Iced Tea to wash it all down...
*belch*
Surprisingly, we're both pretty well stuffed.

Lime Jell-o with chunked canned Pineapple, topped with
Reddi-Wip for dessert later
