    Default Dinner July 3rd '08

    A large, thick sugar cured North Carolina country ham slice (soaked about 10
    minutes in cold water to extrude some of the salt) pan fried for a couple of
    minutes on each side. Creamers (tiny red new potatoes, boiled then tossed
    in a medium white sauce with lots o' pepper) and steamed pole beans. Oh,
    and skillet cornbread, yellow meal, no added sugar

    How about you?

    I bought the ingredients and stuff to do a smoked meat loaf. If I don't
    get to it tomorrow, I'll do it Sunday. If I don't do the meatloaf tomorrow
    I'll opt for the original plan of burgers and bratwurst. Are you going to
    be able to eat that ham... in your delicate condition

    Nothing. I had a green salad & pasta salad for lunch that's still talking
    back at me because of the onions and bell peppers. Ack! Why do I do that
    to myself?????

    You dinner sounds excellent. When I get those ham slices, I always soak
    them as well, to get the salt out.

    We're going over to my friend's house tomorrow and she told me that she's
    serving a spiral ham. I haven't had one of those in AGES! Pork,
    ironically, is one of the few meats I'm allowed to eat, so I'm looking
    forward to this. She wanted to grill, but it's supposed to rain tomorrow.
    Ham works for me!

    My night will be spent making blueberry muffins for dessert tomorrow. I've
    had a nap today, so I'm literally "up" for it. :~)

    Yep! I'm back on regular food, avoiding all nuts & seeds, of course I
    was more concerned about the cornbread but I used a fine ground meal so it
    should be okay.

    Yes please. Velvetized? You mean you partially cooked it in warm oil
    or water before finishing with a hot stir fry? Orange zest? Dried
    tangerine peel?

    Here I'm going to fake a dish called katsu don to use up leftover
    tonkatsu. -aem

    I haven't had country ham in so long that I'm really craving it. Your
    dinner sounds delicious!

    I was too lazy to make pizza dough, so bought some fresh dough locally.
    I'm making a butter/white pizza with buttered dough, sun-dried tomatoes,
    sliced mushrooms, slivered scallions, cooked and crumbled Italian sausage,
    and blobs of ricotta.

    I have to make the rub and prep the ribs for tommorrow, and will prep the
    ingredients for a veggie macaroni salad.

    garlic, ginger and soy sauce marinated Keta salmon (fresh Keta was on
    sale for $4.99#. Stocked the freezer) cooked on the gas grill. Zucchini
    and yellow squash chunks, onion, garlic, green pepper, cherry tomatoes
    (neighbor gave me a ton of them) and some had-to-be-used mushrooms all
    sauteed together in olive oil with fresh basil, a little veggie broth
    and a dash of Chenin Blanc. Home made cole slaw. Glass of Chenin Blanc
    on the side. I'm still stuffed.

    My mom is visiting from PA this week, and tonight she and I went out to
    dinner at a place down in our historic district:
    http://www.johnnysbistro.net/. We had a selection of tapas, including
    portabellos stuffed with goat cheese and topped with broiled shrimp, mini
    crabcakes, bruschetta, seared sea scallops wrapped in bacon, and roasted red
    pepper hummus with pita. We split a "dark side of the moon" cake (dark
    chocolate cake layered with a chocolate mousse and covered in a rich
    ganache) for dessert, and we both had wine (their wines are half price on
    Wednesdays and Thursdays).

    Today was grandson's birthday. How cool is that - having July 3 as
    your birthday? The day after is always holiday! Grandma, Pop, Dad,
    Mom, Auntie and Erik (her fiance) went to our favorite pizza place...
    it's a place my husband has gone to since he was 10, so it's like
    dining with family. We even lucked into a favorite waitress who we've
    known for 20+ years but only works "on call" now. Before our order
    came, who walks in but our nephew and his GF, so we asked them to join
    us. We went back home for a Zanze's cheesecake decorated with
    birthday candles and to open presents. All in all it was a very good
    evening.

    Oh, we ordered Girabaldi pizza - which is ground chicken, mushrooms,
    garlic and a light sprinkling of cheese. We also ordered a sausage
    pizza for nephew's GF because she doesn't like mushrooms. No biggie,
    more leftovers for us.
