    Shrimp and Pork Tenderloin Stir Fry with Snow Peas, Red Bell Pepper, Water Chestnuts and Mushrooms
  5. I have pulled a 5 oz. piece of Pork Tenderloin and 8 large Shrimp out of the freezer to pair with Snow Peas, Red Bell Pepper and other Vegetables from the fridge to stir fry for tonight's dinner. Does not make much of a dent in the freezer but helps to use up some of the already on hand fresh veg.
  6. Buttermilk Biscuit with Country Gravy from the freezer and Scrambled Egg and Bacon from the fridge for breakfast.
  7. I use a friend's recipe: Eli's Refried Beans Ingredients: - bacon or a little ham or salt pork... whatever is in the house - pinto beans, already cooked - some of the pinto bean liquid - roasted jalapeno peppers, to taste - Crema Salvadorena or Crema Mexicana (sour cream) Directions: Cook the pork til it renders and then add beans, liquid and jalapeños, heat up really well, mash the beans, add the crema and taste it....

  10. I have pulled a half-rack of Pork Baby Back Ribs (already seasoned) and one of three portions of Pinto Beans out to thaw for dinner tonight. Pork and Beans just go together!

    Cajun Dirty Fried Rice with Grilled Shrimp, Onion and Egg
  12. Thank you! Photos were taken with my cell phone camera and the food was delicious!
  13. Today a girlfriend and I had lunch with a cousin of mine who is down from Wisconsin and visiting Galveston this month. We met at one of our local favorites, The Sunflower Bakery & Cafe. I had the Crab Cake Salad. My girlfriend had the Grilled Amberjack. And my cousin had Tomato Basil Soup and half of an Egg Salad Sandwich on Muti-grain Bread. I resisted the temptation, but the other ladies each had a slice of the Chocolate Pie.
  14. Lunch! What'd ya have? (Late 2016–)
