Default What's on your plate 2/12/18 - 2/17/18?

Lunch was a ham salad wrap and ranch tortilla chips.
No idea about dinner as yet.

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

Never explain yourself. Your friends don't need it and your enemies won't believe it anyway.

Did meat in oven on convention roast 15 minutes. Braciole is now in Instant Pot
getting tender.

Dinner should be done soon.

Chili . . . to keep the chili heads from killing each other, I make chili with meat and beans. I should probably just call it bean stew and avoid the debate, eh?

on a low fat diet I once tried dicing up some eye round. save yourself the trouble and just don't do that.

so now I buy a "chuck steak" and trim out the fat and gristle. enormously more flavor. this is a 17 ounce/480 g chuck steak that trimmed to 118g fat and 362g lean(er) meat - a roughly 25% weight loss in the fat. pan fried, the trimmings make the dog happy, however....

second shot is 'diced down' to half spoon size....

browned meat + onions + green peppers
can of stewed tomato + fresh tomato + 8oz tomato sauce
can of kidney beans
bay leaf salt pepper 2 t chili powder.

a two people all goner....

Peep, I used a 4lb roast, baby dutch potatoes, baby carrots, sweet onion, mushrooms, some celery (not much).. the seasoning pack that came with the bag, a bay leaf, some thyme, a T tomato paste, Worcestershire sauce.
I like the McCormick bags.
They've got them for chops and meatloaf too.

Well, as it turns out these weren't the best....where I used to live had better offerings for the Lenten meals.
The fish was good, the scalloped potatoes bland, and those beans tasted like el cheapo from the can-o, with a desperate doctoring.

The rest of the family ate theirs without much complaint.
Perhaps we'll do better elsewhere next time.

I like to go meatless on Lenten Fridays (I'm not Catholic or religious - not sure why I like to do this) so last night I had a wonderful chunk of smoked salmon on pumpernickel toast, with cashew cheese, red onion and capers.

Caesar salad on the side. Wonderful!

Salad - mixed baby greens, cottage cheese, blackberries, dried tart cherries, candied pecan halves and slice almonds. was dressed after picture was taken with a mixture of EVOO, red wine vinegar, garlic salt grinder, onion salt grinder, ground pepper, a touch of honey and several drops of Ken's Lite raspberry walnut vinaigrette dressing.

Trader Joe's blackberries were huge and not a bad one in the package, 12 oz. for $3.49.

Damn, Peep, that is a gourmand's (me, for instance) dream! Did you have wine with it?

Your next birthday or Christmas gift wish should be a cool charcuterie board!

Wonderful job!

Change of plans. I have a corned beef cooking in my Instant Pot . I will have potatoes and cabbage (some cabbage boiled and some shredded for raw cabbage salad) with it.

DD and hub can choose what they want for dinner.
