pork chops, green beans, mashed potatoes and gravy
Happy Anniversary to you and your wife @Sheldon Scott. Hope you enjoy your meal together. :0
I smothered sirloin pork chops yesterday with sides of a mixture of kale and spinach, baked sweet potato patties, and pinto beans with jalapeno and bacon bits.
Yesterday I made bacon wrapped shrimp for my Honey then baked it in the oven with some Honeyaki marinated Tilapia with sides of cheesy mashed potatoes and garlic bacon brussel sprouts.
Today we are going to the Movies to see Geostorm...and then to eat at Pizza Village which is our favorite eating out Pizza place.
Babs, that bacon wrapped shrimp sure sounds good. Do you use breaded shrimp? That's all we have in the freezer.
Tonight for supper , I had a big oven baked jacket potato with lots of butter, topped with Tuna and mayo... deeelish...
No I use regular shrimp. After I peel them I use Old Bay seasoning on them, let that seasoning soak in for a few hours, then cut pieces of raw bacon and wrap them around the middle of the shrimp and lay them on a cookie sheet covered with foil. The shrimp I used were large, so I cooked them for 15-20 minutes at 350 degrees in the oven.
You could try the bacon on breaded shrimp @Sheldon Scott although I never have. If you do...let me know how they came out.
Friday's at our home has pretty much become "clean out the fridge" day. Whatever encores we have from the week left in our refrigerator we fill our plates with and finish off. Then the cooking cycle starts all over again.
Today I'm cooking dried navy beans and adding chicken sausage and seasoned cut up boneless chicken breasts to them. Sides will be cole slaw and corn bread muffins.
My youngest daughter and I are swapping some meals during the week now. She loves my cooked navy beans so she will be picking up "their" supper from me later this afternoon after she picks up our youngest grandkids from Mother's Day Out.
When we get together for Thanksgiving my daughters and I are going to talk about starting the New Year swapping week days meals and see what we can come up with. Besides having some surprise meals and not having to cook everyday...it's a way to spend a little time with each other during busy weeks too.
Texas Gulf Shrimp- they are very large. Big red leaf salad with some tiny little weird looking tomatoes...and a bread I have not had in a long time..Tomato Parmesan
Focaccia .We will be dining on this feast while watching the last season of Longmire
@Holly Saunders .. I made that grape thingy today you shared with us..should be ready to eat tomorrow
Weather here has been hot, but today it is a bit nippy. So Made another version of my homemade veggie soup, and chocolate cake. Trying to decide on French Bread with garlic, or the ole standby cornbread.
you've lost me @Gloria Mitchell what grapey thing?...
I've just had duck smoked in whiskey barrel woodchips.. with hoisin sauce... and baby potatoes in their skins
Thought u were the one who posted receipe..grapes cream cheese etc etc ?
Nope don't think so...I hate cream cheese lol.... now Stilton or brie, , or any other cheese yes, but no cream cheese for me...
I'm going to make a chicken and potato hash with green, yellow, and red bell peppers, brussel sprouts, and a mixture of black-eyed peas and green beans with jalapeno and bacon bits. It's what's for supper today at our house.
Fried chicken breast ,cottage fries and ranch style beans. Yeep I need to go back to the store.
But I dont want to
Friday, I snuck over to our Smith's (Kroger) seeking some surplus breakfast sweets, and spotted what appeared to be a turkey drumstick under sealed plastic. Turned out to be half of a whole turkey, sawed cleanly in two, straight down the middle! Four bucks! The sweets forgotten, I took it home and found my wife to be pleasantly surprised.
Sunday she roasted it up. Micro-roasted, that is, fast, juice-sparing, best-tasting way of turkey preparation. Total time: 50 minutes, 25 on either side. A 12 lb. bird, this half was right around 6 lb. It was luscious!
Of course, some breast meat is left over, but thinking of my nephews arriving next week, we asked the meat guy at Smith's if they had any more half-turkeys. He went in the back, returning with a whole rack! We picked two of the biggest ones. Impractical to microwave two turkeys in halves both at once, so my wife did up one this afternoon, removed the meat and packaged and froze it (except the drumstick and thigh, of course, my meal tonight!). The other she will roast when they are here.
Last night I had smoked trout in an orange and honey marinade..... but wait for this...I couldn't think what to have with it, so I opened a can of baked beans..lol... chopped up the fish and mixed it into the beans...weird combo, but it tasted fine
Last night we cleaned out the refrigerator of leftovers from several meals.
For today we're having chuck roast with carrots, onions, and mashed potatoes
