A dinner from a day or so ago. Linguine with peas and leftover chuck tender. A very little parmesan and butter for a sauce.

I’ve been gone so long that I don’t dare go back and comment on all of the incredible meals that you have all been sharing.  But I have been keeping up and reading and WANTING so many things!


My long absence was due to technical difficulties that SEEM to have been fixed now (thanks so much to Chris!).  I haven’t posted in forever, so I’ll start with Thanksgiving.  We did Thanksgiving at Jessica’s.  We potlucked it – I did the turkey, gravy, mashed potatoes and cranberries (the forgotten dish – it languished in the fridge until after dinner).  Everyone else did side dishes and dessert.


Jessica’s delicious salad.



Sweet potato latkes with brie and arugula.  These were fantastic.  Jessica made them in honor of Thankshannukah.  I really didn’t expect to like them since I prefer my sweet potatoes to taste like dessert, but they were fantastic.



My mother’s fruit salad.


Jessica’s challah and dried fruit dressing.  Another winner – she tried 2 new things this year and both were really good.



My MIL did the baking – apple pie and pecan.  Also her wonderful yeast rolls.  The feast:



Some more recent meals - spaghetti with meat sauce and Italian sausage:



Breakfast for dinner:



Skyline chili dogs and baked beans:



With Skyline chili nachos:


Apparently Cincinnati chili is an acquired taste, but we loved it as soon as we tried it when we lived in southern Indiana.  Luckily we have a Kroger grocery store (Cincinnati based store) that stocks frozen Skyline chili and can get a fix pretty fast!


Decorating the tree night.  We decided with everything going on this fall, we’d punt the traditional fondue meal and just go with the basics:


Steak with béarnaise and Jessica’s mushrooms, Marlene’s crispy smashed potatoes and collards.  We also had salad and bread (crusty rolls and cornbread) and I bought a cake that no one had room for!


I’ve got more to post, but it is mostly still in my camera!

Baked salmon with miso butter glaze, steamed broccoli and some tiny sweet tomatoes that I tossed in with the salmon while it baked.

Kim, can you give out the Rx for the fruit salad, or is it a family secret?

Last night: Leftover blackeyed peas and jail slaw from New Year's, along with sweet potato and pulled pork barbecue hash. A favorite stand-by for a quick meal, as there's a good bbq joint less than a quarter-mile from my house.

Fish seems to be a theme this week. Here was our dinner. I made fried catfish, hushpuppies, coleslaw (cooks recipe) and brussels sprouts.

As member kayb noted in the New Years cooking topic

Crittenden County Jail slaw (that's where I learned to make it, and no, I wasn't an inmate!) -- vinegar and mustard based slaw, very tart and very crunchy.

Dry Stir-fried Cumin Beef - Hakka style as presented in The Hakka Cookbook - Danford Dragon Restaurant
Thinly sliced beef stir-fried in a hot wok and a little oil. Removed from the wok. Chopped onion, ginger, garlic, hot peppers, cumin, red chili flakes and curry leaves (my addition 'cos I love the flavour!) fried separately until fragrant. The beef is tossed into the veg mixture. Add a splash of dark soya and thinly sliced green onions. The recipe called for Asian chili sauce, but the peppers gave enough heat, so I left it out. This is the best version of dry cumin beef I've found. Served with stir-fried bell peppers, blanched gai lan and rice.
