    Dinner 2019

    I never, ever considered using nuoc cham as a dipping sauce for salmon cakes. What a fantastic idea! Thank you.
  3. Not at all ... once the coke was gone, I enjoyed the left-over Bourbon like it should be 😉

    Easter Menus

    My brother dropped off a nine pound bone in leg of lamb that he got from Lobel's and asked me to make it on the grill. I have never grilled a leg of lamb before. I settled on this recipe: https://food52.com/recipes/3851-grilled-leg-of-lamb-with-dijon-mustard-rosemary-and-garlic Hopefully it will be good. I. along with three others who will be at the meal, do not eat lamb, so I am also doing roasted chicken with a honey glaze. Side dishes are all various family requests: duck fat roasted potatoes (father), asparagus (sister), whisky-glazed carrots (niece), and some sort of bread (nephew) and some sort of salad (mother) TBD this evening. My parents strongly dislike appetizers before dinner so I am not making any. No one in my family is a big fan of dessert either so I'm just going to put out a small plate of mini desserts that I already have made in the freezer just in case anyone (the teens haha) wants something. Husband is in charge of the wine selections. I know we'll start the gathering with a champagne toast to my parents, who are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary today.

    @Okanagancook. That is how I feel too. I would be happy to just eat the rim.
  7. But you dishonored the bourbon.

    Ha Kim we think alike! The squirrels love my yard, lots of big trees and a lawn where they can plant their findings and come back for a snack months later. And yes, I to put out stale gougere's for the little devils.

    Cilantro

    Green curry paste uses the roots, mostly. But I found leaves & stems do work as a pretty good substitute in a 3:1 ration (L&S:R) ...

    Easter Menus

    My mom will be cooking (I'll be at church for the umm, 8th time since this past Saturday. Yay for heading the Altar Guild...), and I believe both ham & brisket are on the menu, because it's also Passover and my father is Jewish. Mashed potatoes, green beans, broccoli (probably with cheese sauce) are expected, as well as macaroni & cheese. I'm getting dessert at a bakery, possibly Italian pastries, or whatever cake looks good. It's just going to be 6-7 of us. And of course, we'll be bringing a ham pie, aka Pizza Rustica/Easter Pie.

    Food recalls

    Hello all, We checked the numbers on our package of Kirkland veggie burgers and although the UPC number is a match...the code on product is not at all. So, I am assuming ours are completely fine. One always wonders how metal and rubber and plastic bits, etc, etc, etc, get into the mix. Thanks again chromedome. I am actually getting these Canadian recall warnings also but I do appreciate the trouble that you, and Toliver, go to on our behalf. (Also I am still not actually 'online' until after I get hand surgery...if I do before the next millenium...)

    I must say, the only thing I truly miss after going Gluten Free are my pizza's. Seeing these fantastic pizza shots does not help matters! I need a 'Pizza filter', mods! Re: the Basil Glut - I have used Italian basil many times as a substitute for Holy Basil in the famous (and equally delicious) Thai dish - Pad Kra Pao. Very easy to make and it is absolutely delicious!

    High quality soy sauce

    For dips etc, I am partial to this brand, which has a deeper, more complex flavour than most. but for day to day cooking, I just use a regular popular brand. The other flavours tend to dominate anyway, so I'm not about to use a brand that costs 30 times more!.

    High quality soy sauce

    I always though that Tamari was high-end soy sauce, because it has a richer flavor.

    Easter Menus

    I am very lucky that my MIL offered to do Easter dinner this year. Pretty sure she is doing a ham, some kind of potatoes, asparagus and hot yeast rolls. Not sure about dessert. Jessica is bringing deviled eggs and I'm doing Instant Pot collards (I don't like asparagus). I usually love doing Easter dinner, but this year is tough. Too much going on with my mom's health and financial issues and for some reason Holy Week is kicking my butt this year. Church every night - plus we did the midnight to 1am shift sitting in church tonight (meaning last night, I guess), then I am helping Jessica do chocolate dipped strawberries for serving with champagne after the Easter vigil Saturday night. And it happens to coincide this year with my turn at shopping for supplies for 100 lunches that we take once a month to homeless shelters in town. I'll shop tomorrow, help make lunches Saturday morning and then stay at church to do the strawberries! So, collards only works very well for me this year! 😉

    You’d be surprised! She loves veggies and meat but certain things she pretends to eat (hides) and asks for more. 🙈 since salt isn’t good for dogs this is all me dreaming of tea oil!

    Easter Menus

    Wow, now that’s an Easter spread! everything sounds wonderful. we have a grass fed, free range lamb source. The meat is so tender and flavourful we are not keen to do much to it other than salt and pepper so the meat can shine through.

    Food recalls

    Foreign matter (pieces of metal) in Kirkland veggie burgers. Possibly national. http://inspection.gc.ca/about-the-cfia/newsroom/food-recall-warnings/complete-listing/2019-04-18/eng/1555625098697/1555625100775
  25. Too many!!! Someone asked me, how do you know which ones have which recipes to follow? I usually tell them, I don't really copy specific recipes in practice, all of these books I read are really just for ideas, techniques, but I rarely copy a recipe verbatim in practice.

    High quality soy sauce

    I love a really high quality soy sauce. I can eat my own fingers just by dipping it into. I love trying new soy sauces, small batch, very terroir oriented. But I have to admit, Kikkomen's Low Sodium soy sauce is pretty damn good.
