    Dinner 2020

    Steamed oyster sauce seasoned chicken with Chinese mushrooms and Chinese sausage. There was quite a bit of juice in the bowl, and it was so good with jasmine rice. I kept going back to the rice pot, scrape up a spoonful of rice and scoop up just enough juice for a good mouthful. Blanched baby gai lan, then a quick swirl in the hot wok with oil. Topped with a pile of ginger, chopped garlic, and a drizzle of sesame oil. I can make a meal just with this vegetable!

    Lunch 2020

    With the bones from the shoulder of lamb the other day, I made Scotch broth - very satisfying brunch today! Threw in some leeks and turnips, carrot, peas, oregano, thyme, barley, whole black peppercorns, and topped with parsley

    @Kim Shook: I'd say you've got a real winner in Mr. Kim. My hubby can not cook at all, other than maybe throw in a frozen pizza or TV dinner into the oven, or open a tin of soup or salmon and toast. Thank goodness we have one son living close by and good friends. Best wishes to both you and @patti And a Happy and Safe American Thanksgiving to all!

    Hubby had a GI procedure yesterday, so easily digestible and mild food was required. I had chicken congee made for his release at noon, and he was like a hungry bear after fasting for a day and night! Supper was pan-seared cornstarch-dusted and Old Bay seasoned pickerel, lemon dill sauce, toasted tater chunks, and peas.

    I was just given 2 one-lb chunks of cheese, one yellow cheddar and one white cheddar - by our local Samaritan House. No, we are not homeless or needing food bank, but the cases of cheese had a little mold, so cannot be cooked and fed to people who frequent their soup kitchen! The whole lot was to be trashed, but kitchen staff took them home, portioned and wrapped for their own use any friends who were interested for curb side pick up. Manitoba is in Covid -19 Code Red. It's the law, apparently, that soup kitchens cannot use any cheese, food with any mold. I can understand about other foo

    I too was inspired by @liuzhou spicy ribs dinner but I did it lazy woman style. Seasoned the ribs, seared and cooked them in the IP for 20 minutes. Drained them well, then stir-fried them in the hot oil with Toban sauce. Eaten with stir-fried asparagus and bell peppers, and jasmine rice. Dessert was a ripe persimmon each. Every year about this time,

    After seeing @patti's pork loin with Fig sauce, I really wanted it. But must remember to not try new recipes when rushed and hungry. The sauce was lovely on a sous vide then seared pork loin chop, but I cooked the sauce down too much - more like chutney! Cut up a lamb shoulder and made Lamb Tagine. Love the aroma in the kitchen as the meat and spices simmered on the stove for 2 hours. Heated up some frozen naan and steamed some green beans.

    Those lobsters look amazing! I have never cooked tuna! I did pick some up the other day, albeit onloy frozen steaks. I will try later, perhaps grilled like yours? or quick pan-seared? Hubby will probably not eat it if semi-cooked, but we'll see

    Enjoyed a single rib roast beef last night, with McCormick Green Peppercorn gravy. Enough leftover for lunch in a salad. Went thru' my old recipes from our restaurant, and made Toisan Spareribs, named for no other reason than for the county we immigrated from. Used to make these as a change on our buffet from the usual Sweet & Sour Ribs. These were dusted with cornstarch, deep fried, then simmered in a mixture of water, vinegar, sugar, ketsup, and Worcestershire sauce. The latter gave it a

    Marinated 2 chicken legs with salt, 5-spice powder overnight and roasted them at 400F. Skin was nice and "rendered", and the meat was juicy. Eaten with soy bean sprouts stir-fried with bits of leftover char siu. The bean sprouts gave us quite the chew!

    Dinner 2020

    A couple of quick suppers: Chicken Pot Pie made with leftover rotisserie chicken from Safeway, puff pastry, taters, and frozen mixed vegetables Always get a craving for bitter melon and ho fun. Tossed in some beef and black bean garlic sauce, and craving is satisfied! Temperature was +4C and sunny for the last 2 days, so we worked like busy beavers (Canadian, eh?). Great to have quick meals on the menu!

    Dinner 2020

    I was given an acorn squash in the fall and really didn't know what to do with it. Thought of roasting it then making soup, but I found a good recipe, new-to-me to try. Stuffed the halves with spicy Italian sausage meat, sauteed with onion, celery, sage, bits of day old bread, an apple, and pecans. This was moistened and stuffed into the squash which I had roasted beforehand. Topped it with a bit of shredded cheese. Been wanting tater tots, and steamed up some frozen mixed vegetables. Had Chicken and Snow Fungus soup around 5 pm. This had the 2 kinds of Chinese almonds, and g

    A Weight Watcher's recipe for Bouillabaisse. It was quite lovely. I bought cooked frozen P.E. I mussels from Safeway, black tiger shrimp with heads, and frozen clams in the shell from a Chinese grocery store. No fresh shellfish available here very often on the prairies, and when they are available, not reliable in terms of being "live". I've had good luck with the frozen items, and it's easy to throw together. To me, it's the broth, which I thickened ever so slightly. Still good enough for slurping!

    @Shelby Please do pm me the recipe for Pickled Shrimp. Thank you! Supper tonight was helped along by Instant Pot. Hungarian Goulash with a few leftover green beans and carrot, egg noodles, and a Garlic Dill bun from my neighbor. Whew! Enough garlic to keep any Covid virus away! Picked up some more of the Hot Mama Drizzlers and a pair of oven mitts today @66% off. Now, how to use these Drizzlers...
