What a delightful evening! The husband made an awesome dinner and then we watched The Waitress, which was the cutest movie!
I ate the rest of my fruit during Foodservice
Along with this yummy Pecan Pie. LaraBars are the BEST to nibble on during class!
During his day off the husband cooked some navy beans from scratch. I told him to come up with a recipe for them including the remaining 3-4 cups of raw shredded cabbage in the fridge and here’s his creation:
BBQ Beans + Cabbage with Bacon and Okraed Orzo
Into a pot went 2 slices bacon, chopped
Which were removed for garnish when they were cooked
Then 2 cups of navy beans (cooked) and 3-4 cups green cabbage went in along with salt and pepper, red pepper flakes, garlic powder (all to taste).
Plus 2-3 tbsp Country Bob’s and 1/4 a cup or so of Bone Suckin’ Sauce – BBQ rivals! The whole mixture was simmered, covered, for about 15-20 minutes.
Meanwhile, I was hand-delivered this flute of leftover white wine and ordered to drink it!
On the side we cooked some orzo + added frozen okra in the last seconds of cooking, although rice would have been dandy. We’re having rice on Wed. and Fri. so we did something different. (I have no idea why the red stovetop is purple here!?!)
Everything was layered into a bowl and garnished with bacon and lite sour cream
He had two slices of buttered toast, and I had a few bites of those. That’s me cleaning wax that I spilled on the table in the background!
I loved The Waitress. Cute, cute, cute movie. And I’d like some real pie now please!
