What's for Dinner, Mon., April 16, 2018

Last edited Mon Apr 16, 2018, 07:34 PM - Edit history (1)

Tacos. I asked for fish tacos but the fish at the market wasn't any good, so the RG made two types of fillings. One is beef and the other is pork. The interesting thing about tasting each is that right away the pork filling tastes delicious but the beef is a little more subtle. The impact comes about 10 seconds later. It's spicy and oh so good.

Then he made this topping for the tacos which is red onion, corn, shredded cabbage, garlic, cashews. A little crema Mexicana makes it slightly creamy. The tacos will be one hard-shell corn taco shell with a soft-shell wrapped around it.

On the side is a serving of shrimp guacamole.

Bread pudding for dessert. I'm having mine with blackberries and whipped cream.

1. Had some homemade

spicy, green chili pork on flour tacos, with sharp cheddar, cabbage and crema Mexicana for lunch.

Fish tacos with creamy wasabi instead of jalapenos, cilantro, tomatoes and green onions is another favourite of mine.

Do you have a cooking show? Your menus always sound delicious.

2. Chicken Breasts with lemon

Pierre Franey's recipe from 1992. my only change is to leave out the flour...it makes a perfect low-carb entree.
Sad to say that I gained weight treating myself while recovering from chemo over the past year...once I got my taste buds back I went a little crazy with carbs.

6. I forgot the juice of 1 lemon too

I hate those plastic lemons or limes juice things ..... how hard is it
to squeeze a lemon over a strainer?

I have a local Italian wholesale vender .... that sells to the public
cleaned, uncooked, and flash frozen wild gulf shrimp for
$15.00 a pound. Gotta buy 2 lbs @ a time .... hurt me.

Stay away from the shrimp from Vietnam, China, India, and so on.
Nasty!

7. Grilled spare ribs

with a dry rub. Classic potato salad, and a three-bean salad. Who knows, maybe that cucumber that starting to get soft... or, I'll just toss it to the backyard rabbits.
