What we're eating...

In the last couple of weeks, my family has eaten well. We've had mac and cheese with country ham bits, spinach, garlic, onions, tomatoes, shallots, scallions, 4 cheeses (Yes, velveta, but good swiss, asiago, muenster, organic milk and organic eggs from our chickens). We had chicken cacciatore, we had roast pork with roasted potatoes, sliced carrots, onions, cooked on a bed of celery, onions, sliced oranges and pears, with a gravy made from pan juices and the fruit.
We had Chinese-style chicken breast, with sauteed chicken in garlic and scallions, with fresh cabbage, bok choy, ginger, daicon radish, tomato, sesame oil, sesame seeds, and oyster sauce. And then the juice of 8 oranges, reduced to a beautiful, bitter mess.
We had pork chops with yellow rice and sauteed spinach in garlic on the side.
We had corned beef and cabbage with potatoes.
We had fresh U 15 shrimp with calamari, mussels, scungilli in garlic olive oil seasoned with shallots and white wine over capellini. Served with a good blue-cheese salad with a homemade balsamic vinagrette. (thnk you, Christi!)
We had filet mignon, seared to black but pink on the inside served with a mushroom sauce with cream and sauce espagnole, which only took me 16 hours to make.
We had a veggie meal of steamed broccoli, asparagus, cauliflower, a gumbo of yellow squash and greed zucchini over a bed of yellow Jasmine rice.
And tonight, we are having simple meatloaf: Ground chuck and ground pork (2 to 1) with breadcrumbs, seasoned with black pepper and pink sea salt, with ketchup, 4 eggs, sauteed celery, onions, garlic, tomatoes, and covered with six slices of bacon. Wish us luck. have a good meal, everyone. You hear me?
