What's for Dinner, Fri., Sept. 24, 2021

Fish filets (Gardein--plant-based) with tartar sauce. First time I've tried them. I'll let you know what they're like in a future post.

Zucchini-corn pancakes topped with chives and a little sour cream.

Coleslaw, made with grated apples. Currants. Toasted slivered almonds on top.

Dessert: watermelon.

Later on, during my Friday night crime shows, I'll have Smartfood popcorn, white cheddar cheese flavor.

------------

We have a birthday to celebrate! Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa is going to run again at the age of 88!



So I thought it would be a fun thing if we could celebrate Grassley's birthday by donating $88 to his opponent(s), one by one, to show the broad base of his opponents' support.

See this thread to donate $1 (or more if you wish):

There are two candidates, and we'll notify them they received campaign dollars in Grassley's honor.

Make it a happy one for Chuck!

1. I made an Asian style stir fry using a frozen veggie mix and chicken

I used the very last of my favorite sweet Thai soy sauce-😢 making the sauce mix. Luckily I can re-up next week. Served that over rice. Leftovers for breakfast though 😉
Cold decafe tea.

4. A treat! Butterflied steaks from New Zealand leg of lamb.

Marinated 6+ hours in lemon zest, lemon juice, minced garlic, salt, pepper, EVOO.

Then broiled 4+ minutes per side in cast iron.

Divine!
