Dinner 2018 (Part 1)

Recommended Posts

Sardines in mustard and wheat Saltines.  The wheat Saltines were an accident.  The sardines were a choice.  No one needs to see this.

I got them from a hydroponic grower who sells at the local farmers market.  They aren't summer tomatoes but at least they are picked and brought to market ripe so they're pretty good.

 

 

Last night for me was leftovers, otherwise not worth writing about, but I did enjoy the last of my summer tomatoes:  Mountain Magic.  And it's almost time to order more plants for this year!

 

For tomatoes in winter (or any other season for that matter) it's hard to beat Mastronardi Sunset brand tomatoes.  These are greenhouse grown.  Other brands of greenhouse tomatoes have not done it for me.  Even in tomato season, to my taste Sunset beats locally grown tomatoes (except my own).  And this is New Jersey, the Garden State!  I don't understand why but it is so.

Platter for two.  Lobster with Ginger, Garlic and Black Bean sauce. 

I still had four lobster tails in the freezer from New Years.

Sardines in mustard used to be a regular workday lunch for me. At that time they were (IIRC) about $0.89 a can, and fresh-baked rolls at the supermarket bakery were $0.20, so I'd buy one of each and call it good.

A couple of meals.  Tamales (pork, from Costco).  They were a bit too spicy for my taste so to tone them down I made a tomato sauce and melted some mozzarella on top.  Used some of the sauce to make Spanish rice.  Served with snap peas.  (This was from a week ago, but had to head out of town with no time to post the pic.)

Last night I made lentil soup, this time using brown lentils, ham and carrots.  Made in the electric pressure cooker.  Served with salad.

 you can have your sardines I'll take the peppers. I had a craving for them when I was pregnant and haven't been able to look at them without getting nauseous since.

Warm cinnamon rolls.  

Nice to see that someone else thinks that cinnamon rolls aren't only for breakfast.

  I’m going to contest that as a born and raised and a forth generation Jersey girl.
