Tuesday Dinner - 4/18/2017

Rapidly changing circumstances today, so I had to quickly put together a dinner of what I had in the fridge. Stir fry of chicken tenders and asparagus, which is a pretty good combination in the spring.

Nice looking fish Hamm!!

I was hungry for a casserole tonight. Most are so full of carbs but this one is at least acceptable for me with only 4 tortilla's for eight servings plus it's easy and sounds Southwestern delicious. We'll have steamed broccolini on the side.

We had the quick Thai chicken dish that I think Kayelle posted the link for in last couple of weeks. Sides were jasmine rice and sauteed baby bok choy. It was pretty good, though I think I'll cook it at a slightly lower temp next time as the sauce got a little too dark around the edges of the pan and there was certainly no need to put it under the broiler. I used almond too instead of peanuts.

Glad you liked it too Med! I agree, the broiler wasn't needed.
I love the looks of the baby boc choy..I picked some up today at TJ's.

My hernia is acting up again quite badly (our second try for surgery is May 5th) so just having soup and maybe some gluten-free toast.

TB had some sweet and sour ribs I had in the freezer. With getting ready to more, we are trying to use up as much stuff as possible. I made them last month when the online shopping crew gave me sweet & sour ribs (the cut, it was my own sauce) instead of an $8.00 pack of side ribs I ordered. The ones they sent were over $24.00. The ended up refunding me the $16.00 and let me keep the ribs! I'm not eating much meat, but TB enjoyed them!

Lamb loin chops seared in the cast iron skillet with Penzeys Fox Point seasoning, couscous salad with grilled onions and peppers and red wine vinaigrette, and green salad with feta and more red wine vinaigrette. Click image for larger version

Purged leftovers from both the fridge and one tub from the freezer. We each had a nice almost-Mediterranean salad, then Himself finished the pulled BBQ chicken and mini-buns, coleslaw, and Brussels sprouts. I had a chicken dish from the freezer that consisted of breast meat, preserved lemon, green olives, and onion. Oddly, I do not remember making that. Could someone be putting their leftovers into my freezer???

Jeannie wasn't feeling 100% so it was a bowl of broth for her..

For me it was a silly concoction of scrambled eggs and...wait for it... chopped baloney.. geeze....

What I really wanted was what GG had...
