We ordered Caribbean food. DH ordered a combo griot and jerk chicken. I ordered goat curry. They both came with rice and beans. Mine also had fried plantain. That was delicious. Both dishes come with a salad. We put on note on my order "no tomatoes". We only got one salad. It was all tomato and cucumber. DH doesn't like cucumber or raw tomato, so that was a waste. But, the food was really good.

I didn't feel like cooking, Himself didn't feel like eating. Perfect! I did make tuna salad which became tuna melts on mimi croissants, plus a side dish of tomato.

Himself said the little croissants looked like stuffed potato skins. Click image for larger version

Tonight, the dish I made was an old favorite - Mahogany Fire Noodles. I always make this when I get enough spearmint and basil to top it with - 3/4 c each. I have to make it with frozen Thai peppers at this time, until the thai peppers start producing.

So engrossed in watching WCWS playoffs that I didn't want to spend time in kitchen.
Put a pork butt in the slow cooker. It wasn't ready when we got hungry so, I made a quick batch of waffles, along with bacon.

Pulled pork will be Sunday's dinner.

Of course, there was cake later.

We went out to dinner last night, to a place run by two Bolivian sisters. They have an interesting variety of Central and South American food. I had tamales with braised beef and DH had stuffed poblanos. Interestingly, the poblanos were roasted but not peeled and they weren't tough at all.

Yesterday, my godson turned two. (I cannot believe he is two already!) No party last year due to the pandemic, but we had a cookout yesterday. Hamburgers, hotdogs, and pulled pork.
