  • April 2nd Dinner Post

    Good Morning!

    It will be a high of 39 and the low of 27 along with a mostly sunny sky. After watching it snow all day yesterday along with a steady wind blowing today is a beautiful day.

    DGS said the potato soup was so good yesterday that he will reheat it back up for dinner tonight and make grilled cheese sandwiches along with a coconut cream pie.

    What will be your dinner this evening?
    Heritic, rebel, a thing to flount,
    He drew a circle that shut me out.
    But love and I had the wit to win,
    We drew a circle that took him in.

      So who is making that coconut cream pie ?? Has to be LTB , right I mean we know ( according to LTB's past dinner posts ) her grandson doesn't do pie crust, so I am sure coconut cream pie is not in his repertoire. Just wondering , that's all ? Enjoy your pie

        Since I am on this dinner thread I think I will post our dinner for tonight. I usually don't post about dinner, because I don't cook very much. But we are having company tonight ( yes , everybody had their covid vaccination ) so I am fixing salmon filets with a lemon dill yoghurt sauce , Hasselbeck potatoes and grilled asparagus. Our friends are bringing dessert.
        We don't usually have dessert on a daily basis, we don't need the calories, who does ??

          That does sound good Sabine!

          It’s been a very pleasant day today and I really haven’t accomplished a thing all day. I don’t feel guilty about it though!

          I’m going to make some cheese enchiladas and refried beans for dinner, haven’t done that in quite awhile.

            Thank you Charlene. I have always wanted to try Hasselbeck potatoes, really easy to fix, a little time consuming to slice the potatoes , but other then that , easy. I always put parmesan cheese and some cooked crumbled eggs on asparagus . I want to try a sauce one of these days, some kind of aioli , garlic aioli. Haven't managed that yet.

              Its cold and Good Friday. So i had Pierogi that i bought at the Polish Market. They had a large variety so I tried the stuffed banana pepper ones There is 6 in a package
              and I had 4. They were good. My next try will be Buffalo Wing pierogi. The pierogi stand was so busy that they were out of the regular ones when I got to the front.
              And to finish it off a bag of Carmel coated popcorn

                I love this on asparagus, steak, on a spoon, it’s just so good!

                BÉARNAISE BUTTE

                200g of butter (room temperature) (about 1 cup)
                2 tsp of Dijon mustard
                1 tablespoon of lemon juice or white wine vinegar (I used the vinegar)
                3 tablespoons of freshly chopped tarragon (or 2 tbsp dried tarragon) (I used about 3 Tbsp dried)
                1 tablespoon of freshly chopped shallot (I used Penzey's Air Dried Shallots, crushed with mortar and pestle and soaked. I used about 2 Tbsp)

                DIRECTIONS

                In a bowl, mix the soft butter with the rest of the ingredients.

                Place the butter on a piece of parchment paper and roll it until you have a nice firm log. Close it firmly in both ends. Now put it in the fridge and let it harden. Store for about 1-2 weeks in the fridge and a few months in the freezer.

                Whenever you need it, you just cut a slice of bearnaise flavored butter and put it on your steak or patty. Yes, it even goes for breakfast!

                    Happy to share it! It is amazing on a good steak and asparagus. I used to order the bearnaise butter on my steak at Black Angus and put it on my roasted asparagus too.
