What's Cooking August 15, 2014?

I picked up a package of flour tortillas and will use them to make enchiladas for dinner.

I know flour tortillas aren't usually used for enchiladas, but I don't care for corn tortillas.

My plan is to stuff them with refried beans, taco meat and cheese, and bake them without sauce until toasted, before adding the enchilada sauce and maybe more cheese on top.

What are you having for dinner?

I've had some pork marinating since yesterday for a Pinoy Pork Barbeque. I'm making a Thai cucumber salad and grilled pineapple to go with it.

I'm about to grill some veggies to make maque choux, which has a lot of Mexican flavors. Then I'll make tomatillo-avocado salsa and do something with the leftover taco meat from the other day. Maybe quesadillas with cheddar cheese.

A trip out to the garden...I have beans, cabbage, zucchini, lettuce, beets, kale, chard, carrots, peas. I guess I'm having another monster salad. Picked up some yellow plums, guess I will add some of those for variety.

Do you have a favorite dressing, or does that vary with with the harvest?

Pot stickers, edamame with garlic and sesame oil, and a cucumber and tomato salad.

Grilled tuna steak, new potatoes (which we've been eating a lot of lately), and a bottle of homemade Minnesota LaCrescent wine. Mrs. K said "We're having a yellow dinner!" I didn't realize it at the time I was making it but, yes, it does have a definite yellow hue.

We went out for dinner and I ordered a hamburger. How boring is that?

Depends. How was the hamburger?

I decided on the quesadillas. I added chopped tomato and minced cilantro to the maque choux. Need a new name for that.

Finally ate the meatloaf made on Wednesday that was intended for dinner on Thursday. Just like a fine wine, it got better with age. Mixed baby greens with mushroom, black olive, hard-cooked egg, tomatoes and mozz cheese. Sides were green beans, beets, and mashed potatoes. We'll be finishing up the last of the blueberry grunt in a bit. I gave my SIL and her hubby a good-sized slab, along with the recipe. I wasn't going to make that recipe again (I prefer a different one for a blueberry buckle) and thought she might use it since Himself referred to the finished product as a "blueberry delivery system". My BIL likes blues no matter how they're cooked, AND he has a sweet tooth the size of TX. All I know is it was way too sweet.

I use EVOO, vinegar, S&P. The vinegar varies--I brought cherry vinegar and pomegranate vinegar out to the farm that I made earlier in the summer. Last night I used cherry. About 3:2.

Very nice!

I have not had a meatball sandwich in years, another one of those wonderful foods I forget to eat!
