    Dinner 2019

    I haven't looked closely at the whole itinerary, but I'll keep you in mind! Apparently, there is an active volcano in the area, and its last eruption was in May, 2018!😮

    Dinner 2019

    Will try to keep you posted. Depends on WiFi and how busy they keep us. Hope to have more time when we are in Yan, Malaysia, as we are staying at our friends. I am hoping her elder sisters will be there to cook for us again! We ate SO well when we were there in 2013 - breakfast, lunch, dinner, evening snacks, something different every day! This will be the last meal I am cooking for the next 5 weeks, and my fridge is pretty much cleaned up now except for a few eggs, hald a container of Greek yogurt, and 2 pints of raspberries. Will eat that up for breakfast and lunch. Supper will be pizza delivery! The Last Supper: last of the beef trimmings, a bag of bean sprouts, a lump of ginger, few scallions, and a bag of zeroodle fettucinni = Close-enough to Ho Fun! 😁

    Dinner 2019

    Trying to catch up reading posts...difficult but SO much deliciousness! Been very busy getting "stuff" ready for travel insurance, income tax, home security, paying bills, and deciding on what clothes to take! We travel light - one carry-on each and computer bags - for 5 weeks! Onto Malaysia for 10 days visiting friends, then 29 day group tour to Indonesia. So, I am trying to cook up bits and pieces from the fridge and the freezer. Tonight, I thawed and used up a bag of beef tenderloin trimmings from Xmas Wellingtons. Made Beef Stroganoff over Zeroodle Penne and a green salad. Other meals: Korean Roast Chicken, carrot fries and baby gai lan Prime Rib, mashed cauliflower:

    Dinner 2019

    Sunday dinner: Substituted Zeroodles fettuccine with oat fibres for oyster sauce HoFun (rice noodles). They worked very well. Had asparagus, red onions and a few baby gai lan in the crisper, so that was stir-fried and tossed onto the noodles. Topped with sliced sous vide chicken breast. Tonight, I used up the last lb of pickerel from the freezer. I was surprised there was a bit of fishiness, but the recipe I used helped alleviate that, along with liberal shakes from the white pepper shaker. The fish was cut into bite-size pieces and dredged with a bit of cornstarch. Thin threads of fresh ginger was fried in oil, then the fish was shallow-fried in the ginger-infused oil. Sauce was sweet soy, sesame oil, water, and white pepper. Our side was steamed green beans stir-fried in FuYu. All eaten with Jasmine rice.

    Dinner 2019

    Sterling Silver Sirloin Tip roast at a good price this week...$3.99 / lb. Found a cou-ple around 2.5 lbs with nice marbling so I did one up in the sous vide for my grandson's meals. It was great! Cut it into thick slices if he wanted to have a "steak". I had a craving for bitter melon - must be because of these -40C windchill temps we keep getting! Ground chicken with Bitter Melon, black beans AND Toban sauce. Eaten with Zeroodles mushroom fried rice.
  6. Haven't made this for a while. Not great selection on avocado at the moment, and anything worth buy is outrageous!

    Most excellent comfort food. This was a dish all my Chinese students knew how to cook and cook often. They are confused when I say I also add stir-fried beef with this dish - maybe more of my Toisanese roots showing up?

    I assume you are asking about the little sprig of greenery...Yes. It's cilantro. I love it and often eat it like lettuce in a sandwich. Other leafy greenery was Tahi basil and the bigger ones are baby gai lan

    Dinner 2019

    A couple of meals: Usually make Ma Po Tofu, but I kept the tofu out of this dish and fried them up as a side. This is ground chicken, Toban sauce, diced bell pepper, onion, and eggplant Blanched baby Gai Lan with Ponzu . Leftover Spicy Chicken made perfect lettuce wrap with fresh beansprouts and Thai basil Stealhead Trout baked with Dijon mustard. I used whole grain, Dijon, and dill mustard.

    Lunch 2019

    Haven't had watercress for ages in our supermarket. When I do find it, I love having it as part of a salad or in place of lettuce in a sandwich. This was the last few sprigs, and I added them to my salad with a small can of Spicy Thai Tuna. A sprinkle of shredded Parmesan Cheese added a bit of saltiness. This was bright and spicy!

    Dinner 2019

    Supper tonight - Shepherd's Pie made with ground chicken. The recipe is from the 17-Day Diet blog. It called for green beans and tomato sauce. I only had zuchinni and "Spicy Pizza Squeeze", which worked better than just tomato sauce. The mashed cauliflower was spot on for texture. Bak choy was stir-fried in a tiny bit of oil, then chicken broth. I am always leery using ground chicken, but this turned out well, silky even without thickening. This was a good low-carb low-fat meal.

    Chicken thighs seasoned and rosemary stalk tucked into vacuum bag. Sous vide then seared in non-stick frying pan. Once browned, I added sliced mushrooms with a quick spray of Pam. Tossed around then added the chicken juice from the vacuum bag and reduced. We really enjoyed the mushrooms, almost as good as sauteeing with butter! Eaten with Greek seasoned carrot fries and steamed baby gai lan. Just trying another way of reducing calories and carbs.

    Son came out from the big city for a quick visit. Made one of his favourites that he doesn't get at his own table. One of his friends, a vegetarian also came for supper. I invited him as he sharpens my knives! Steamed Black bean garlic Ribs - Instant Pot For the vegetarian, I made Black Bean Garlic Tofu, Mung Bean Noodles with shredded veg, and Shanghai Bak Choy For the two of us tonight, we had Panko coated Pickerel (thick fillets!) with Lemon Dill Cream Sauce, roasted cauliflower, carrot fries and steamed asparagus.

    I'm with you there...salmon steaks are fishy and dry to my taste.
