New Year’s Eve in Surf City

Anybody else have to wait until the 3rd of January to get paid? I’m broke! I’m having to scrape day-old chicken fat off the cutting board, gently sautée it so as not to lose any of the goodness, and pair it with the reconstituted sauce from a long-empty can of baked beans that I bought on sale last week with what I could find in the piggy bank. Sheesh! 
     But, I’m goin’ shopping on Tuesday night after work! My pockets’ll be full of thin pieces of plastic, which I’ll use with abandon. Don’t read on if you can’t stand the thought of good food just now. [I’m getting psyched.]

     Presenting: The Subversive Archaeologist‘s clickable dinner menu for Jan. 3rd through 7th.

Speargrass is too ‘spensive this time of year, so it’ll prolly haveta be broccoli, with pan-roasted fingerling potatoes.

Chili-Spiced Chicken Soup with Stoplight Peppers and Avocado Relish

This is a one size fits all soup. All it needs is a little corn bread!

Pasta Fagioli

Arthur Fonzarelli. Where are you now? I’ll admit, Asiago is one of the more pungent toppers in the ‘fridge. But it’s soooo good.

Huevos Rancheros with Queso Fresco

The queso fresco makes this a meal. Bon apetit!

Lastly, a recipe of my own.

Smoky Slumgullion

Feel free to substitute at will, as long as it’s fired or smoked.
     Champagne time. [Paid for it weeks ago, knowing I’d be stoney broke by tonight!]

Have a safe and pleasurable evening.
See you next year!
