Thursday Dinner - 8/30/2018

Dinner tonight will be mussels with chorizo and tomatoes, with a home made baguette to soak up the sauce. Green salad on the side.

Even though we live in a seaside community, our mussels come from PEI. For those interested, here's a little info (and a whole bunch of recipes):

we are going to Chic Fil A tonight. Proceeds are going to help an 8 year old who has cancer. Pray for a large turn out.

Pan fried loin lamb chops from Costco is on the menu tonight, along with loaded baked potatoes and steamed broccolini.
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.

Those are good. I need to pick some up next time I am there.

This is a dish that we ate often in Hawaii, but I had NEVER made myself.
You'd find Chow Funn with all sorts of add-ins at potlucks and so forth.
Noodles are always served at gatherings, festivals, celebrations, New Years; it symbolizes long life... never hurts to hedge your bet, right?
I was real ONO (hungry for) Beef Chow Funn; I had one more package of Chow Funn Noodles that I brought back with me in my suitcase, so I went searching on the WWW for the right way to do this dish:

*Note: Foodland is the supermarket that I still shop at when we go home... love them!

Now, my rendition of Beef Chow Funn

We have enough leftover for lunch tomorrow too
The literal meaning of aloha is "the presence of breath" or "the breath of life." It comes from "Alo," meaning presence, front and face, and "ha," meaning breath.
Aloha is a way of living and treating each other with love and respect.

I saw that the store I was hitting up today was featuring Cuban rolls. I wanted to make Cuban sandwiches, but didn't have any roast pork. So I figured I'd make hot ham and cheese sammies on Kaiser rolls. Behold, they also had their own roasted pork loin in the deli! Cubans it was, with homemade dill pickles and Plochman's yellow mustard. Loaded veggie salads, too.
