Leftover carnitas and beans for me, made by what USED to be my favorite restaurant *. Very simple and quite tasty, especially the carnitas. No picture, sorry!

=====

* It's a Mexican place in the town next to mine. Usually delicious food (no matter what I've ordered) at OK prices. Well, their prices are a lot higher now, which is really fine, everyone's prices are, BUT they haven't updated their website to SHOW the correct prices. So I order by phone think I am spending around $30 (with tax) and I get there and it's just over $40. I was like, "What? Are your prices wrong online?" "Yeah, we haven't fixed that."

Even the price hike would have been fine, but both the quality and quantity of food have gone down as well, and I never expected that. The paper bag of tortilla chips was now literally half full (it was always stuffed before) and even the little container of salsa -- which is small to begin with -- was HALF FULL too! And the taco shells now appear to be store-bought (or restaurant-supply-bought) as they looked and tasted NOTHING like the tacos I've gotten there for years. I was so bummed as I have enjoyed this place so much, but I doubt I will ever go back.

Oh, the carnitas were still fantastic, and that portion was the same (quite large). But I can make my own too ... just need to not be lazy.

Sorry for the grumpiness.

Cooking up some sirloin strips in the cast iron pan with some garlic butter. Serving that up with basil ravioli and a cucumber salad. I grabbed a gorgonzola sauce for the ravioli and maybe the steaks too.
We made a trip to Federal Hill in Providence today. It is their Italian area. We bought way too many Italian groceries. This is why we are having such a gorgeous dinner tonight!

Hubby did the dinner tonite, even tho I requested the items. 2 fish fillets, and tater tots, as well as an added tomato. I wish they were my own Quartered. Added sprinkle of sea salt. Some Mt Dew.

Couple scoops of B&J ice cream.

I put a couple of steaks in the sous vide and when it came time to sear them I found out the grill was out of propane. Did a hot sear with unsalted butter on top of the stove instead but now have a mess to clean since my helper is out of commission! Mashed Yukon gold potatoes and sautéed kale for sides.

Today on the road: Beef enchiladas with chili sauce at Mercado's in Tyler, TX. My sides were refrieds and rice (and I added a little Hatch green chile sauce to top the rice). Also had chips and salsa, and all washed down with unsweet iced tea.
