  1. A new twist on the challenge for me. Our 15 year old side by side refrigerator freezer has decided it no longer wants to keep food frozen in the freezer. We spent the morning shopping for a new unit and happily the new one will be delivered tomorrow. In the meantime, we have moved all freezer items to the lowest part of the freezer, which is still cool but above freezing, and topped them with 4 one gallon size bags of ice. The proteins are all at the very bottom and should be fine. Sure glad I have been cooking through my freezer!
  2. Lunch! What'd ya have? (2017)

    The Fries were good, not super crispy but well cooked. Lightly salted and perfect for me, but my husband took one taste and went for the salt packets. We divided the Fries so as to have each as we liked. They have mayo in packets if that's what you prefer for dipping.
  3. Lunch! What'd ya have? (2017)

    Burgers and Fries at Five Guys!
  4. Dinner 2017 (Part 4)

    We went down to Galveston for ArtWalk today and had dinner outdoors at ZaZa Bar & Bites on Postoffice. They had live music and we enjoyed people watching while we enjoyed our meal and drinks. I had the Grilled Snapper Tacos and my husband had the Chicken Curry Masala with Garlic Naan.

  6. Dinner 2017 (Part 4)

    No photo of tonight's Tacos, but I did take one of our Friday Night Treat - local strawberries and freshly whipped cream.
  7. Here is my updated inventory. Most of the protein items are staples and have been rotated or added since the beginning of the challenge, with the exception of the three pork dumplings, the one link of andouille, the smoked ham hock and the duck breasts. Will have to find recipes/uses for them, although the duck breasts were purchased with the idea to spread them out over a year's time. The first four items in the Misc. list are staples but have not been rotated since the beginning of the challenge, so I will work on that, too. This challenge has proved to be very helpful to me!
  8. That looks wonderful! I still have four duck breasts in the freezer - one will definitely be getting a similar treatment!

  13. Dinner 2017 (Part 4)

    Greak's Smokehouse Pecan Smoked Jalapeño and Cheese Venison Sausage with my Potato Salad
  14. Potato Salad

    My Potato Salad This batch contained four large thin skinned white potatoes (boiled until tender, cooled, peeled and cut into a large dice), four large hard cooked eggs (diced), two stalks celery and one-third of a medium onion (both small dice), about a half cup of mayo and a teaspoon or more of dijon mustard, salt and black pepper. The potatoes are kept aside until all of the other ingredients have been stirred together, then the potatoes are gently folded in. Cover and refrigerate for a couple of hours to allow the flavors meld. (I personally do not care for pickles in potato salad.)
