The Food Post

Posted by: Rick

I promised a food-oriented post. This will probably be pretty boring because it is just a list of our evening meals during this trip. And, there are no photos. I will provide links to our online recipe book, where possible. Still, it will serve to remind us what we ate when we look back in future years. We are often baffled about that. Do you ever think "what the heck did I used to cook back in the old days?" I'm actually struggling to remember last week, so some of these may be out of order, but why would you care?

Lynne made a great tuna noodle casserole on our first evening here. It is pretty easy, so makes a good "first night" meal.

We had grilled chicken with neighbors on Monday (or was it Tuesday? Wednesday?)

Flaky Mushroom and Gruyere Tarts with salad on Tuesday.

Sweet Potato and Black Bean Enchiladas, for which we do not have an electronic copy of the recipe. Too bad, because they were delicious. Basically a stacked enchilada with a flour tortilla covered with a filling of ground beef, chunks of sweet potato and black beans with appropriate herbs and spice. Top that with some cheese and repeat 3 layers. Bake. Yum.

Slow Roasted Baby Back Ribs with Potato Salad. This is one of my favorite rubs for ribs.

We had Grilled Chicken "Cordon Bleu" one night, and we are now discussing which night it was. So, already, we have things out of order. You should make this, it is delicious.

At this point, I give up trying to match meals to days. So, next on the list is Salt and Pepper Shrimp.

I do remember Saturday night, though. Grilled Hamburgers and true Twice-Fried Belgian Frites.

Sunday was store-bougth tortellini with Tomato and Butter Sauce, some salad too.

Monday will be (since I'm writing this before then) Egg Rolls made from Egg Roll Bowl leftovers, along with a Cucumber Salad. We freeze these then thaw and fry them for a quick and delicious meal.
