    Dinner 2021

    Cumin seasoned strips of beef tenderloin, stir-fried with bell peppers and onion chunks. Lightened-up sesame chicken. The strips were just marinated with sesame oil then dusted with cornstarch and pan-fried. My old recipe had chicken strips mixed with flour, cornstarch, egg, then coated with bread crumbs before deep frying. They were SO much better! Used the same simple sauce I used in the restaurant: water, vinegar, 5-spice powder, sesame oil , and red pepper flakes.

    Lunch 2021

    A couple of lunches as I am still nursing my sore jaw. Moroccan Spiced Butternut Squash Soup. Have some left over and found it works great as a dip for al dente steamed vegetables (cauliflower and broccoli) Boston Clam Chowder: would love oyster crackers with the chowder but available only via amazon.ca, and it's $33.70 for 9 ounces! Saltines it is!

    @Kim Shook: re-turkey drumsticks: I just did what the instructions said on the package: roast @375F until internal temp reaches 170. But I pulled them @160 and let rest 10 minutes. I had some stuffing under the drumsticks. They were very good and I am glad I picked some packages up and tucked into the freezer. Gave 2 packs to my son as his 6 and 8 year old love "dinosaur legs"! I love that chana masala. I need to make some roti jala - memories of our first breakfast after landing in Malaysia!

    Dinner 2021

    Picked up several more packages of seasoned turkey drumsticks with price reduced stickers. Guess nobody want them after Xmas and NY. Hubby ate a whole one while I cut a couple of pieces of mine. Eaten with sweet potato and peas. Pretty cheap meal!

    Oh sorry...WW = Weight Watchers. I have only used one setting for my Ninja Foodie TenderCrisp - 390F That's a good idea to brown the Panko crumbs. I'll have to make a note on the recipe!

    Lunch 2021

    Hurt my jaw last night, and it's swollen. So it's soft food for lunch. I had picked up Cantonese BBQ ducks and Siu Yook (crispy skin BBQ pork) from the Chinese grocery. because I am a regular, the owner gave me several BBQ Pork bones for soup. Those are SO full of flavour and still a lot of meat attached. I used 2 smaller pieces to make jook / congee for lunch today. It was really flavourful! Eaten with preserved egg, Chinese crueller, and few slivers of crackling.

    Ninja Foodie air-fryer fish'n'chips with pickerel. It's a WW recipe - batter made with beer and egg white then coated with Panko crumbs. Had the usual Glico Curry gravy and spicy ketsup.

    Enjoyed Yaki Udon at a hotel restaurant while in the city. The last time we were in, they had taken it off their menu and replaced it with a quinoa salad. So I did a riff on it when I had a request from hubby. Ramped it up with shrimp and Chinese sausage. I sure showed them! 😆

    Dinner 2021

    Wanted MaPo Tofu, but I like to add eggplant to mine ( 2 dishes in one!). But I didn't have eggplant so I went with oyster sauce instead with some lean ground beef. Instant Pot came into use last night, with Thai Coconut Curry Chicken. Took a meal over to the bachelor neighbor with the bobcat with snow removal blade! Good insurance if we have major snow falls!

    Dinner 2021

    These are the noodles that I use. Shrimp roe / eggs are incorporated in the noodles. These I use when the soup is made with just water and not stock. But with the rich pork broth I had, it was doubly delicious.

    Lunch 2021

    THIS is all I have in my "book". The portions, taste for tang and heat are up to you to adjust. Google and see what comes up. The green containers are 16 oz. food containers that we used in the restaurant. MSG is optional. We stopped using it when customers request no MSG. No sugar is added as per other recipes, but there is some sweetness from the BBQ pork (char siu) I don't use pepper, but the chili paste gave our soup a "signature". It's a well-kept secret! 😄, so sssshhhhh...

    Great idea! Our fireplace needs work before we can use it. Meanwhile, I bought 2 bags of marshmallows intending to make a new marshmallow treat! And thanks for the sympathy on hubby's never-ending saga.

    Lunch 2021

    Hot'n'Sour soup makes a regular appearance for lunch even when there isn't any cold viruses around. Wish it would take care of Covid, but alas, no such magic. Didn't get to make the Winter Solstice daikon & dumpling soup. Finally found some lovely daikon and made the Savoury Turnip Cake like my Mom used to make. She had chopped Chinese bacon, mushrooms, dried shrimp, and salted turnip. Steamed for an hour then chilled in the fridge. I had to be patient and waited until today to fr

    No. The pickerel or walleye are from Lake Winnipeg. https://huntfishmanitoba.ca/species/walleye/
  16. Not sure about posting recipes on the forum so I've sent it to you via message
  17. At Xmas 2019, I made four Beef Wellingtons for family dinner at our daughters. She has a double oven so it worked perfectly. As before, we made it without any bacon, prosciutto . Just made sure the duxelle was not watery. No such gathering this year due to Covid-19 Level Red in Manitoba, so it was Wellington for two. Due to various health issues - extreme

    Found lovely fresh watercress at one of the grocery stores yesterday, and huge persimmons! They need some time to ripen but I do have a couple in a brown paper bag with bananas. Toasted sandwich with Thai Sesame and Ginger mayo (Hellman's) - love the bite of the cress.

    With leftover Chicken and Rice from supper 2 nights ago, I made Congee / jook / rice porridge. Love it with preserved egg, pork floss, fuyu, cilantro, and crueller.

    Dinner 2020

    So many lovely meals since I'd been AWOL for a few days! After day surgery, hubby wanted comfort food. Ginger Chicken and Rice in a small cast iron pot And Egg Foo Young with beansprouts and Chinese sausage Next day, hubby was feeling better, and the lamb chops made him even better! I cooked the lamb chops in the oven to avoid creating smokey lingering haze in the kitchen, which is open to our u

    @SmithyApologies for delay in responding. We've been running back and forth to Winnipeg Health Sciences Centre for day surgery on kidney stones for hubby. Life is slowly getting back to pandemic normalcy. Manitoba is still under Covid level RED until late January. We were doing gigs in and around Middlesbourough. Of course the fish 'n' chips were the main draw, but we needed some variation when we are there for 2 months. The best fish' n' chips was at Whitby. Must have been the sea air! The recipe I have used for years is in a book called Eastern Miditerranean Cooking by Roger Debasque - p

    Memories of England: Our band performed in many workingmen clubs in the Yorkshire area in 1976, 77, and 79. The clubs all close at 11 pm, which was foreign to us as our gigs in Canada would run until at least 2 am! We were at loose ends, so we followed the other musicians and entertainers to many of the Greek and Indian restaurants that are open all night for a late meal. Moussaka was one dish that remained a favourite after we came home and through the years. This delicious dish brings back so many wonderful memories. Eaten as before, chips (air fryer) and peas.

    Lunch 2020

    Had leftover baked tater and canned corn = Boston Clam Chowder, topped with fresh dill and Tajin seasoning. Can't find oyster crackers here, so I thought I'd toss in a couple of waffle pretzels. Nope...way too crunchy! 😄 Made a big pot of Hot'n'Sour soup today, to take to our daughter in the city next week, and to share with our son and friends in town.

    Dinner 2020

    @DuvelThe little one frenching and devouring = champion! Pulled some beef tenderloin trimmings from the freezer. All that I'd been stockpiling for family gatherings need to be used up now. This package was packed with my FoodSaver - from March! That was a worthwhile purchase. Just seasoned with Montreal Steak Spice and grilled in cast iron pan. Had the oven on for shortbread, so tossed in a couple of taters, and opened a can of corn. I have been using kewpie Deep Roasted Sesame Dressin
