    Dinner 2019

    I seldom make corned beef hash. I usually don't have enough left by now.

    There are very times out of the year when anyone can predict what we will be having for dinner, but on March 18th, it will always be Rueben sandwiches. That usually finishes up our corned beef but this time I corned a whole brisket so there will be some hash soon and probably some for the freezer too.

    Our dinner is ready but we are not ready to eat yet. Our March 17th meal is of course home made corned beef. We will also have cabbage, parsnips, rutabagas, carrots, scones with pear and Irish cheddar, Irish butter and potatoes. Here is how it looks now. I don't think I will be able to post a picture of it after it is served.

    Yesterday's dinner was nothing much worth mentioning. I came from a box in the freezer. Dessert was improvised. It was not very pretty but worth trying again. It was a very ripe and juicy pear over melted cherry ice cream and topped with some sour cherry jam. Todays dinner was veal piccata with egg noodles and a salad.

    We thought our dinner was pretty good tonight. It was Emeril's braised chicken thighs. We had it with rice.

    We had shrimp creole for dinner tonight.

    I made some lasagna last night. I didn't take a picture then. My niece arrived with her children to play with my potters wheel about the time it came out of the oven. I gave them about a third of it when the left to take home. Charlie and I had a piece and then I mentioned that maybe the neighbors behind us might like some because there would be too much leftover for us to eat it all. I didn't think about it again until I came into the kitchen just now for another piece. This is all that was left.

    Charlie had friends over last night and ordered pizza. There is enough left over for a couple meals, so I only made some fried rice tonight.

    Charlie asked for some sourdough French bread to eat with some brie I had in the refrigerator. I guess I had the oven set a little too high. Even though I cooked it to 190º, it came out browner than usual and almost burnt on the bottom. I trimmed off the bottom before we had it. Charlie also ordered out for dinner. He ordered Chicken Tandoori. I didn't take pictures of it. It came with some sauces, rice pilaf and some kind of flat bread.

    A few days ago, I saw a package of corned beef at the store that said it was point cut brisket. I almost never see that part offered in regular stores. That is the fatty end and (I think) the best part. It was small enough to be a good size for the two of us so I got it and cooked it today.

    We had brisket braised with vegetables and with gravy and salad.

    We had Polish sausage with cabbage and noodles tonight. I think Charlie has requested this about 5 times in the last six months.

    I was able to get a small duroc pork shoulder and decided to make a Cuban sandwich. No one that I know of has Cuban bread so I looked up the recipe and made it this morning. T

    Made a second stab at Charlies request for chicken wings done Pureto Rican style and PR rice to go with it. After some reading up on the rice ingredients, switching to a fried chicken version, and a trip to Bonito Michoacan grocery, I was able to round up everything. It all turned out very well this time.

    The other day Charlie asked if I could make empanadas again plus find recipes for Puerto Rican chicken wings and rice. I made the empanadas a couple days ago. I have made those before. I showed Charlie a couple recipes for PR chicken. One was for wings and he picked it. It was marinated and grilled or roasted. It was way too cold to grill so it went in the oven. It didn't brown very much but was good. I will look for a fried chicken recipe to try next. I have found almost everything for the rice but made a Mexican style today. It was a Goya mix from the Mexican grocery.
