    So many delicious meals! Don't know where the time has gone. I've been cooking and eating, but just got lazy in posting.😏 Most labour intensive cooking I did was about 3 weeks ago. I was late in celebrating Dragon Boat Festival, and was reluctant in taking up the task as Covid did not allow any family or friends to help out. However, I finally took up the challenge and made +80 packets of Joongzu, for family and friends to enjoy. I made 2 kinds this year, both with the same filling, but one batch all sticky rice, and the other batch my Mom's mixed rice (jasmine and sticky)

    My bachelor neighbor just bought a smoker with BBQ. He smoked beef short ribs today, a first try, and shared some with us. I am usually the one feeding him! I said a small piece as I already had stuff out for supper - stuffed chicken wings from the freezer. The ribs were pretty good for a first attempt. Cooked up jasmine rice and Shanghai Bok Choy.

    The chili bean sauce he mentioned in his recipe is doubanjiang

    Black Bean Garlic Chicken, Butter Melon over Ho fun. Always a favourite except for our kids' spouses! Definitely an acquired taste. Had forgotten these fun plates: Made wontons for a friend and had lots of filling left over: Stuffed bell peppers, fried then simmered with oyster sauce Breaded veal cutlet with katsu sauce, tater tots and roasted carrot. Thought of doing a brown gravy like my Dad used to in the little prairie cafe, but thought of the extra calories!

    When I see lovely daikon, i want Tang Yuen - with re-hydrated dried shrimp, Chinese sausage, daikon, cilantro. They really stick to your ribs!

    Something pungent this way comes. Tried a different recipe for Chicken, Salted Fish (Ham Yu) and Tofu Sand Pot. The salted fish was diced then sauteed in the pot until crispy. Whew! Even with the exhaust fan on full blast didn't help. Smelled lovely until afterwards. Too much of a good thing. It was handy to have the vegetables cooked in the same pot! Picked up tail-end pieces of halibut Labelled WO Halibut Fillets. Not sure what the WO means, but it was about half price. The pieces still had good thickness. Coated with Panko and eaten with a lemon and caper sauce. Sides: clean out the veg bin stir-fry and Indian Lemon Rice. The halibut was lovely - moist and silky texture.

    Hubby requested Steak and Kidney Pie - so it WAS...for supper.

    Lunch 2021

    Made soup with the ham bone - lots of vegetables: parsnip, carrots, leeks, celery, canned corn and white kidney beans, plus a couple of spoonfuls of leftover scalloped taters. Good and filling lunch to fuel me for working in the yard!

    Have never been able to find andouille or tasso here. A suggested substitution was chorizo, and that's what I used/

    Dinner 2021

    It was much cooler (9C) and quite windy today, compared to the 19C yesterday! Good day to work on laundry etc. inside and to put together something I haven't made for a long long time. Jambalaya Creole style. It was good! It turned out quite spicy, but the corn on the cob tempered the heat a bit.

    I'd eat this for breakfast, lunch and supper. Hubby isn't a fan of eggplant, so all the more for me!

    Dinner 2021

    When lovely pork tenderloins are marked down, I cook them! Garlic-herb roast pork with pear, baked potato and corn-on-the -cob (all the way from California). Pears were sliced and cooked under the pork. Nice change from apple / apple sauce. Had a chunk of bone in ham from Easter. Baked and doused with Maple Brown Sugar glaze. First time making scalloped potatoes with both white and sweet potatoes. Hubby has a sweet tooth so the meal was to his liking even though ham is not his favourite protein.
