    Dinner 2018 (Part 1)

    After weeks of being closed, due to heavy rain, the clam beds finally opened again and I was right there to bring in the gold. Linguine with white clam sauce was my reward last night. HC

    Grocery Shopping

    My latest score on Amazon. These 2 items would have cost me more at the local Asian market, not to mention the cost of gas and the wear on my car. I am a huge fan of 'click and wait'! Plus, I love being able to buy a 1 pound bag of tree ears, not an option near me. HC

    Lunch! What'd ya have? (2018)

    The last of my mortadella with the usual suspects (lately this includes baby Swiss, marinated zucchini, and roasted red peppers). Today I added some homemade garlic dills, some tomatoes, blistered shishito peppers and a cold beer. It was just about all I could handle, but just enough to make me wish I was immortal. HC

    Dinner 2018 (Part 1)

    Being called away from the dinner table just after plating, the other night, has left its mark on me. Last night, it was dinner that we could bring with us, if need be. HC

    Breakfast! 2018

    After carefully preparing a dinner of local corn (picked while I waited), powerful garlic bread and Love Salads, last night, this meal was never 'consummated' , but rather, packed up and put away, just after being photographed, as we had to respond to Deb's daughter's car failure with emergency relief and a loaner car. After bringing Deb to work this morning, I made a stoic effort to recover, and it wasn't half bad. Here's breakfast: Here's the dinner that never was: As they say in so many sports, 'It's the recovery that counts.' I was pretty happy with mine! HC

    Lunch! What'd ya have? (2018)

    Mortadella, baby Swiss, marinated zucchini and roasted red peppers on a corn Kaiser roll, along with a little reading material to help me decide on who will get my votes in the Connecticut primary when we vote this evening. HC

    Dinner 2018 (Part 1)

    Why thank you, @ElsieD. These were ground beef that had been cooked in a fry pan and drained of most of the fat, then seasoned with salt & pepper, garlic powder, chili powder and cumin, hit with a splash of beer for moisture and put in the taco shells. That was covered with a layer of pico de gallo followed by a layer of sharp cheddar cheese and baked in a casserole dish lined with non-stick aluminum foil at 375 F for 15 minutes and served with more pico de gallo, fresh salsa, finely shredded cabbage and sour cream (which I brought out after the camera was put away).

    Dinner tonight was tacos. Even though the boxes have 12 shells in them, I have staged a mild revolt, and only cook the 8 that we will actually eat. We have taken to finely shredded cabbage instead of lettuce. HC

    Lunch! What'd ya have? (2018)

    I ran errands this morning and did a bit of grocery shopping for dinner. I was hoping to spend some time in the garden this afternoon, but a steady rain has thwarted those plans. Today is the 13th of the month and we already have 5 1/2 inches of rain. I can almost hear my tomatoes cracking from here, in the dining room. For lunch, I went with a bowl of spicy chicken ramen, a cold beer and perhaps a nap. HC

    Once again, lobster was on sale. I believe the Chinese tariffs are the cause: https://www.bostonglobe.com/business/2018/07/20/lobster-prices-plummet/kCVziDHnOiDZrTusfTrRZK/story.html Nevertheless, we could not resist. HC
  11. Let the sauce making begin. HC

    Breakfast! 2018

    Breakfast, the most important meal of the day (especially in August!). HC

    Steak night for Deb, lamb night for me. Bakers and garden tomatoes on the side. HC

    Breakfast! 2018

    Usually, when it is hot and humid, I don't want much for breakfast, but because we decided to skip dinner last night, this morning was an exception. Poached eggs on a toasted snowflake roll, scrapple, home fries with onions and roasted peppers. HC
  15. I did try it and it worked well. The only surprise was that in 3 days, they were ready. I was expecting it to be a week or more. HC
