What's for Dinner, Sat., Feb. 1, 2020

Salad and pizza. Here's a pic of the salad:

The RG is headed to the UK shortly, so we had to have our dinner early. This is one of his "inventions." The dressing is anchovies and tuna, I think, blended together for the iceberg half. He probably used mayo or crema Mexicana for the base. Capers are sprinkled over the top, in addition to the vegetables that decorate it.

I must say, it is a fun way to eat iceberg, which we hardly ever have. While dining, you just cut off a slice and mix it with whatever vegetables you want from the top. No salt: the anchovies act as the salt.

The pizza was a surprise. We were so disappointed that our favorite pizza had been discontinued from TJs. The RG shopped there yesterday and found out they were back.

The one we had today was ham, gruyere, and caramelized onion.

1. Looks good!

We are having the rare steak, rare = double meaning here.
Red Jacket potatoes with caramelized bacon and onions, and a winter greens salad with garlic dressing.

2. That really does look good

And the pizza sounds good too.

We had cheeseburgers and.... wait for it.....

tater tots. Al found a HUGE bag of them at a good price, so we opted for them instead of French fries.

We went shopping yesterday, but there were some things we didn't get because we knew we could get a better price at a different store. (Eggs were 18 for $1!) So we did that today.

Also today, I'm prepping for a big meal tomorrow. Al's "unbirthday" feast (a nod to Lewis Carroll). Some of you may remember that we ended up w/ 2 turkeys at Thanksgiving. We froze one, and this week I thawed it for a dinner that we'll have tomorrow.

So, I brined the turkey.

I had some "butt" ends left from the homemade bread I've been making, so I cubed that up and toasted it so that I can use it to make homemade stuffing to go w/ the turkey.

I also baked a Devil's food cake. It's going to have a layer of raspberry jam in the middle and covered in cream cheese frosting. (This is what Al said he'd like to have.)

So I kept dinner simple again tonight.

I'm also still trying to figure out if there is a way to watch the Men's Championship match at the Australian Open, and if I can, I want to watch it live. That means I'll be up at 3:30 am if I can find a free app to stream it on.

I feel like I've been a fountain of productivity!

(Somebody rub my feet, please... and pass the tequila.)

3. Oh, MissMillie

that Al is a lucky guy.

Your cake idea sounds delicious. I love a cream cheese frosting and raspberry jam with devil's food? Ummmmm!

This will be some feast. The brined turkey should be very tender.

4. Maybe not all that lucky

He's put on at least 30 lbs. since I've been here... and he didn't need it.

(I don't care what he looks like, it's just that he's recently been put on meds for diabetes... I think maybe I shouldn't serve dinner until he takes the pups for a walk.)
