What's for Dinner, Mon., Mar. 8, 2021

Pork ribs. I'm having mine with Stubb's, but the RG is having his plain.

Coleslaw. I put in grated carrot and red onion. The RG made the dressing with this new kind of vinegar he bought at the Portuguese store--honey vinegar. Also in the dressing is crushed coriander seed.

Green beans amandine.

Corn bread and multi-grain bread.

Dessert: tres leches cake, which I baked this a.m.

Got my camera back, new batteries, and reformatting SD card.

I know, everything seems to be in my fry pan. There's a story to that.

I had a 9" fry pan that was heavy aluminum and required the largest stove burner, the double electric. It got old.

So I bought a 6" footprint pan, lighter aluminum. It goes on the single 6" burner. Heats in half the time.

So 1/2 the wattage, half the duration ... it really does knock $3+ off the monthly electric bill.

Elec Co. went to remote reading of meters, and my bill dropped even more. They decided to recalibrate it. It was correct.

So I think this means my old rotary meter was over-billing for it's 43 year life, or perhaps as it got older.

So the moral is, pay attention to how you use energy. It's not free.

6. yeah, I think $3 is a lot, relatively speaking

That's $36 a year; 43 years would be around $1550.

Ay yi yi.

4. Made a huge pork butt yesterday, now debating what form dinner will take

Maybe wee little no-crust shepherd’s pies in the air fryer.

Maybe heated in gravy and served over low carb white bread, blue plate special style.

Maybe as Cuban sammitches with Swiss cheese and pickles.

Maybe as some form of enchilada.

7. Chicken Neapolitan on angel hair.

Garlic bread. Black olives. Red wine.

This was (mostly) the daughter’s doing (due to my bum shoulder and my bum rib), and I think she nailed it.

8. Blistered tomato galette!

Had a starter tonight... fried oysters with homemade cocktail sauce. I breaded in flour, then egg, then flour and panko crumbs. The flour and panko got liberally seasoned with lemon pepper seasoning.

The galette (uh pizza) is still in the oven so I don’t know how good it is, but it looks and smells awesome. The ricotta lemon and pesto were mixed by me. The recipe didn’t call for doing that but.... That’s me! Also. I used a Boboli ready pizza crust instead of the puff pastry. So probably more of a blistered tomato pizza. 😉

10. I loved fried oysters...had them at a buffet at a time share in North Carolina. I had never

eaten them before. We went for Thanksgiving with the kids...there we all were everyone in the dining room lined up with plates in hand waiting for the next batch...so good.
