    Dinner 2020

    Temperatures are really cooling off by supper time, single digits with frost a couple of nights. Time for some "stoking up the internal furnace" kinda meals: Finally found pearl onions, so made Beef Bourguignon, eaten with egg noodles. Carrots tossed in at the end for additional veg. Memories of my Mom's cooking - Chicken, Mung Bean Noodles, Lap Cheung, napa cabbage, and Salted Fish ( Ham Yu) in clay pot. Love Romano beans! Good fresh cl

    Here are the two kinds of dried shrimp I have on hand. Used the larger ones for Joongzi last month. Can't remember what my niece paid for the shrimp meat. She was shocked at the price, but for her favourite auntie, any price 😉 The large pieces were bulk, so no label. The smaller ones listed water, salt, sulfite Size comparison.

    My hubby would say DEFINITELY!

    Not sure how to describe the difference. I think the little ones may have been dried with their shells and so are a little bit crunchy if eaten out of hand? These are definitely peeled then dried. I can eat these like jerky! Splurged on a couple of Cornish game hens, stuffed with wild rice pilaf. Sides were local corn and sauteed water spinach Had a chicken breast and a few shrimp to use up. Coated with fine Panko crumbs and pan fried. More of the lovely local corn and

    We were under yet another tornado warning today! Luckily, it didn't fully develop. The air was stifling outside, so no playing in the dirt today. I cranked up the a/c, turned on the fans, and had another day in the kitchen making something from my Mom's recipes. Daughter and s-i-l are home, so I made one of her childhood favourites: Char Siu Baos Marinated 5 lbs of County style pork ribs and cook them up on the BBQ. Diced along with onion and sauteed in hoisin sauce. Made up 24 steamed baos! My Mom's recipe made exactly 24!

    There was not taste to the baby abalone. I was yearning for the larger baby ones we enjoyed in Seoul a couple of years ago. They were amazing! But the little shells will make a pretty wind chime.

    Dinner 2020

    July and August has been crazy times with the weather. We've had 3 devastating tornadoes very close to our city. There were many properties destroyed, but most tragic of all, was the one last week. Two teenagers were killed when their truck was thrown and tumbled into a field. This on top of the uncertainty of life with Covid-19 is weighing heavily on every one's mind. Our province, and specifically, our small city of around 48,000 people had 72 days of no cases of Covid, then this last 2 weeks, we've had 67! Many of us seniors have been living carefully within small bubbles, but we do mis

    What's happened to time? Stuck at home and the garden most days, and wow! I've been AWOL for a long spell. Am looking back on all the meals, and they are all super delicious! Actually, I've been afraid to log on as I end up spending wayyyy too much time looking at everyone's food. My kids gave me a 6 month subscription to Cratejoy for Mother's Day.. I am a hard person to shop for! The one they picked was Spice Madam. It's really a waste of money for what comes in the boxes: several small bags with a couple of tbsp of special spice blends, recipe cards for 4 or 5 dishes, and music t

    Cioppino - first time we enjoyed this was in San Francisco, many moons ago. Not as good making it at home with frozen seafood, but the broth was slurpingly delicious! Seared the scallops and topped the bowl. Didn't have baguette or garlic toast, but Chinese crullers filled in nicely. With this Covid-19, everyone is baking, so yeast has become a scarce commodity. I had an unopened jar in the dark recesses of my cupboard. Don't even remember why I bought it as I don't bake anything that requires yeast. Must have fe

    Lunch 2020

    Made chicken congee and loaded it up with favourites: Chinese crueller, Century egg, salted egg, very spicy peanuts, fuyu, and a dash of sesame oil. Made lazy-man pizza with lavash. Nice and crispy thin crust with squeezable pizza sauce, extra lean capocollo, fresh pineapple, feta cheese, and fresh basil. Something I haven't made for a long time - sushi! Filled it with lobster meat, cucumb

    Still have ice floes in the backyard, so I am making good use of the Starfrit stove top grill pan. Grilled burgers and vegetables Had scored a 10-rib crown of pork with a $5.00 off a $25.00 chunk of meat. Cut the whole thing into 2 rib portions, seasoned and added fresh thyme or rosemary , then sealed with the FoodSaver. Got 5 meals out of the crown. SV one package, then grilled - tender and juicy.

    We don't really celebrate Easter, but did have family dinners in the past. Had a smoked pork shoulder a while back and saved the big bone for soup. Luckily, the soup didn't get made, and there was enough meat left on it to provide dinner for two. Our "Past-over" Ham dinner with scalloped potatoes. Grilled fresh pineapple was great with the ham. Happy I picked up the packages of seasoned turkey legs and breasts when they were on sale. They are the perfect size for two people, with leftovers for sandwichs and salads. Stuffi

    Fried up some chicken breasts in the Ninja Air Fryer, made up a sauce, and toasted sesame seeds for Sesame Chicken. Vegetable Pad Thai and some breaded zucchini in the Ninja.
