Supper Saturday 9/30?

It is cold and rainy here so I fixed a carrot soup and a bread salad. Pretty sure that will be dinner.

What's up at your kitchen?

Chilly, gloomy day here, too, but no rain for us. A bowl of cheesy cauliflower soup (with extra cayenne pepper) and Cuban sandwiches (to use up the rolls/meat) for us tonight.

Made the chili mac and cheese Andy referenced recently. I had to tinker with the recipe. Yep, surprise in our house. I felt it would be too soupy so I used half the broth called for and instead of the 2 cups of shredded cheddar, I mixed in 4 cups. Turned into a pretty tasty casserole. I think next time I'll add some chopped jalapenos. Made a bunch. The recipe says it serves 8...lumberjacks?

Anyway there is a ton left, so we'll have more tonight with a big cast iron skillet full of hot cornbread slathered with butter.

Mrs. Roadfix wants to go to this great little hole-in-a-wall ramen shop in J-town tonight.

Today marks DH's 10th Anniversary of Retirement!
This is a HUGE deal, seeing what he did for a living for
nearly 30 years. The job didn't kill him, thank you God,
but most folks don't survive 10 years after retiring.
We are so blessed, truly!
So, I asked him what he would like for dinner to celebrate,
"Steak Frites and a nice salad."
No, he's not a foodie

I made a small TATTRAT inspired boiled dinner.

A small cabbage, two carrots an onion and a ring of kielbasa steamed over ham bouillon flavored water.

I will save the cooking liquid for the soup pot and use some of the leftovers to make a breakfast hash.

I can't believe it!
DH asked specially for A1 Sauce to go on his Steak
He hasn't used A1 in well over 25 years :shrug:
ok
I decided I'd give it a taste after all this time,
now I remember why I don't care it

We will finish off the Meyer Lemon Meringue Pie for dessert later

edit> oh yeah I forgot to say I also made sauteed
mushrooms with shallots, garlic, butter (sshhh), OO, White Wine and Flat Leaf Parsley, MMM!

K-girl got me thinking about sausage and peppers, so I picked up some peppers, onions and sweet Italian sausage at Sprouts. Cooked it up with a lot of diced garlic, and finished it with some basil from the garden, and some fresh grated Parmesiano Reggiano.

I even took another photo. Business is slow, so I guess I'm feeling the need to take pictures. I even tried my had at some food styling. I am a professional photographer, not a professional food stylist, so this is about as good as it gets.

I worked a double yesterday, had 5 hours off, then went back in for another 12. Went straight to my son's game, then the plan was to go out to dinner for my birthday, but I just couldn't keep going or even see straight for that matter, so we just stayed home and DW made my favorite: Chicken Parm and Spaghetti.

Happy birthday, Bucky!

Had the 2 youngest grandbabies last night as a surprise, so we reverted to spaghetti-O's, chicken apple sausage, and sliced tomatoes & cucumbers.

I had taken out a slab of spare ribs from the freezer. When it defrosted I was pleasantly surprised to see that I had already seasoned it! Did a sheet pan dinner with the ribs started 'bout 1/2 hour before throwing in some potatoes, onions, then another 15/20 minutes threw in a couple of handfuls of broccoli and cauliflower. All vegies were oiled and seasoned with Garlicky Old Bay.

Had to mush up the Old Bay as I've had it a while. Don't think we can get it here and I usually scrounge it up from whoever goes to America for a trip.

I also et'up the rest of the ribs'n vegies for my mid-morning snack.

Belated birthday greetings. Great to have a relaxing time after all that work! One of the things I really like is to get a nice range of cheeses, some good bread, a few - and I mean a few, not too many, bottles of nice wine, invite some friends and have a cheese and wine evening with our friends. We live in a major wine area, so pairing wine with the cheese is fun! This year's vintage is small but high quality, but nowhere near ready - it's still in the vats. We'll taste some older wines, and reminisce...
