The exact meal we didn’t know we wanted

Menu: hard shell tacos with all the fixins

Creator of delicousness: New Person (NP)


The whole crew plus Guest Chef came out for dinner at NP’s house. Guest Chef was just here to eat this week since we were belatedly celebrating his birthday.

NP made up the taco spiced ground beef and then threw it in the crock pot to make sure it was stewed all through with flavour. There were diced tomatoes, grated cheese, lettuce, sour cream and 4 hard shells each. We ate them all and didn’t leave much behind for the clean-up.

When we sat down to eat, it was decided that this was the perfect meal for our day even though only NP had thought to make it.

As we were cleaning up NP found the jar of Salsa she had bought for us, but we never even missed it.

Monday night dinner actually happened on a Monday this week

Menu: Pulled pork, biscuits (Gluten full and Gluten Free), roasted potato salad, cole slaw

Creators of deliciousness: Freefoodbaby and Guest Chef

We have been a very busy group of people lately and I (FFB) managed to wrangle our dinner group together on a Monday night. For a group that calls ourselves the Monday Night Dinner Crowd this is a very rare occurrence.

I managed to be at my grocery store the day they mark down all the older meats in the case and snagged an $18 pork roast for $9 and this became the basis for my menu. This was my first attempt at purposefully making pulled meat (see Bring the bowl..). Using the crock pot and the tenderizing power of ginger ale it turned out really well. The recipe was pretty simple, put thawed pork in the crock pot add about 1 can of ginger ale and set on high for 5 hours. Drain the meat pull it apart and add BBQ sauce, leave in crock pot on high for another hour.

The biscuits full of gluten were a departure from my usual drop biscuits, easy and delicious. I was able to make them large enough for pulled pork sandwiches.

Guest Chef prepared the coleslaw based mostly on the linked recipe above, but with a few of his adjustments that I didn’t see.
