Great Leftovers

By Sharon Colyer
Yesterday at 5:15 PM
Although, this item was not totally from scratch, it is very tasty. Hubby picked up a pork tenderloin at the grocery, that was already marinated. It said it was 'rotisserie' flavor, so I'm thinking it would taste like chicken--haha. Actually, it tasted like 'mesquite' flavor, which I like immencely! I don't get the 'rotisserie' flavor label though. So, we both had a hand in cooking the meat. But, he made from scratch mashed potatoes. And, I made Brussels sprouts with butter & seasoning salt.

The other meal, was chili. I don't have it posted. It is based on a recipe in my old Better Homes & Gardens cookbook, that I've used for 40 yrs. My mom's chili was based on this same recipe. But, hubby uses a lot of meat versus tomato product. He used to use ground beef, but now uses ground turkey, partly due to the high cost of beef. Ideally, Mom & I like a bit of broth with it, whereas hubby doesn't. I often add to my own bowl--maybe a little water, garlic powder & salt, or garlic salt, & chili powder. And, if we have it, I might add a some granules of beef bouillon. But, we were out of it this time. He made macaroni, to add. Sometimes, we might add some shredded Cheddar cheese on top of our chili.

The weekend is a big cooking time for us, because he works out of town during the week & likes to take homemade meals with him. He still eats some TV dinners, pot pies, etc., to fill in for lunch or a change of taste. I am thankful, that he cooks. It really helps, since I am partially disabled.

Pork chops are thawing. I have eggplant sliced and salted. I toasted some leftover buns to crush into breadcrumbs. And German Sweet n Sour Cabbage . Time to fire up the oven.

In honor of St Patrick's Day upcoming (as if I needed a reason!) I made a family favorite - Shepherd's Pie - which of course has an Irish origin.
This is a real comfort food for our family and makes a regular appearance - usually on a Sunday dinner rotation..

I printed up 3 different recipies for the batter on JAP and they of course all look good. Two are beer batter and no one drinks beer here so would have to run to the store, one doesn't thinking of trying that one first.
With it of course fries, and I always make up my own tartar sauce and cocktail sauce. Tartar sauce, homemade Cocktail Sauce
