    Dinner 2022

    Single rib prime, sous vide @132F for 4.5 hours, and finished off on the BBQ. Green peppercorn gravy, etc Comfort food: Steamed chicken with Shitaki mushrooms and Chinese sausage. Sauteed Shanghai bok choy and rice. Love the rice mixed with the meat juice!

    So many variations! When we have Muslim guests, I make congee with pickerel and lots of ginger. Sometimes, I make it thinner, but usually, it is fairly thick so the add-ons stay on top.

    Sous vide pork ribs with char siu sauce then finished off on the BBQ. Hubby has dental work in progress day after the ribs, so softer foods for a couple of meals Chicken Congee with the works for him, and Hot 'n' Sour for me. Made a big pot so he could have some another day. A family favourite from hubby's Nana: Rice omelette with cheddar cheese sauce Pickerel Fish 'n' Chips with curry gravy

    Dinner 2022

    Had another medical trip to Winnipeg, so meals from Cibo Waterfront Safe next to the hotel. I really enjoy the Fried Chicken Club in brioche bun along with Greek salad. Hubby had the double cured pepperoni pizza on garlic crust Shake and Bake BBQ chicken legs in the air fryer Picked up lovely lamb chops on sale at Safeway: Grilled on stove top The Big Easy came into service as we still don't have an oven (not until end of June!). Wanted roast chicken, and the rain has stopped for the day! No fresh pappardell, but I did finally find dried ones at Superstore. Made Bolognese sauce and had it simmering while I finally got to play out in the dirt!

    Dinner 2022

    Might call this my East Meets West dinner: Canadianized Breaded Sweet & Sour Spareribs which was on our restaurant menu as #13. The ribs are seasoned, egg wash, breaded with soda cracker meal, deep fried, then simmered in water, vinegar, sugar, and ketsup! Deep fried is #17 or as appetizer. Hard to keep fingers out of that pile! In progress After simmer and thickened with cornstarch slurry Traditional Chinese Stir-fried Fun See (mung bean thread) with Chinese sausage, dried shrimp, and Napa cabbage

    A real contrast in taste for supper tonight. Mad soup with Hairy Squash and Lily Bulbs - lovey sweetness - but not the candy sweet. Light and refreshing Main dish was Beef & Bitter Melon in Black Bean Garlic Sauce - eaten with Jamine rice.

    My 1982 GE oven died😞 It served the previous owners and me (from 1992) well, but did it REALLY have to quit when replacements are hard to access?! It's a wall unit and limited space. I have ordered a 27" which will JUST fit in with a slight modification of 3/16" on either side of the cabinet. BUT, it won't be available until end of June! Happy that the ice and snow are gone from the yard, and I can access the BBQ, The Big Easy, and have my Ninja Foodie if I needed an oven. A couple of pieces of rib eye grilled on stove with pan-fried previously "bake in IP" taters. Picked up soft instead of med. firm tofu, so had to pan fry the tofu and cooked spicy ground pork and eggplant in Toban sauce separately. Tossed in a handful of fresh mint leaves - lovely! Absentmindedly pulled out beef kidneys, a Sterling Silver blade roast, and puff pastry thinking of Steak and Kidney pie. DUH! No oven. Got the filling done up and thought to just have stew, but I really wanted the puff pastry topper! Googled and was able to use the air fryer to cook up pieces of the pastry.

    Dinner 2022

    Been away to the city where hubby had surgery. He stayed in the hospital for 3 days while I stayed in a boutique hotel along the river nearby. I was happy to have a lovely restaurant just a few steps away. Ordered a couple of items and a Greek salad for lunch each day, and it did me for lunch and supper. Good to have the fridge and microwave. After hubby was discharged, we moved over to our daughter's house, and they cooked! Finally got home after a week only to discover my oven went kaput. Luckily, I had meals planned that didn't need the oven! Brought home BBQ duck, cheung fun, and ho fun, which made meal prep easy as I am still helping hubby navigate around the house due to his incision. On the evening we got home from the city after the 2.5 hour drive: BBQ Duck over Cheung Fun with Pea Tips. Next evening was Spicy Shrimp, Ho Fun, and Gai Lan Deconstructed Chicken Fajita and steamed green beans for another meal, then Pork Chops with Mushroom Gravy was on the menu last night Today, I had a bit more time free from "home care" duties, so I made Chicken, Shrimp, and Sausage Gumbo

    @Kim ShookYour whole meal looks fantastic, but the Baked Ham and the Gratin Dauphinois had me salivating! Boursin cheese was on sale this week. I've stocked up on a variety. Having the Apple and Maple now, and it never seems to get further than from package to my mouth!

    @ShelbyI LOVE your prime rib. Must use your method next time. Seem to be taking shortcuts these last couple of meals. I used KFI Butter Chicken sauce before and we really enjoyed it. Picked up a couple more jars while at Costco. Superstore had AAA Beef tenderloin on sale this week: 12.99 / lb. plus 10,000 points using my PC Financial credit card. Picked one up, trimmed it and got 11x7 oz steaks for the freezer. Had lots from the thin end and trimmings for stir-fry. Have a bag of bell peppers to use up: Black Bean Garlic Beef & Bell Peppers for supper.

    @DuvelYour little guy loves octopus. I salivate every time I see his plate. Have never cooked any myself other than the dim sum curried baby octopus. I am tempted to pic up a package of this - on sale at our supermarket this week. It's already cooked. So if I sliced it up and sauteed quickly, would it be like what your son has? Or do you cook it from raw?

    Dinner 2022

    Came thru' a major spring blizzard middle of the week. It was a Colorado low that swept thru' the prairies, dropping 30-80 cm of snow and gusty winds up to 80km in some areas. We fared ok with maybe 30cm snow in the city. Wind made it challenging, whipping up some hard drifts. Thank goodness there were no power outages. I cooked up a prime rib so as to have cold cuts if needed. The oven helped warm the kitchen. I had a rib bone with tomato jam, a gift from a friend Finally getting to use some of the spices a friend who gifted me the tagine and lovely spices (Ras el Hanout, cumin, and saffron) from Algeria. Made Moroccan Chicken Tagine AAA Beef Tenderloin is on sale @$12.99 / lb at Real Canadian Superstore. I picked one up for $89.00, and cut it up = 11x7oz steaks plus 3 meals of stir-fry from the trimmings. Used some up to make Beef Tomato and Egg stir-fry

    Finally a lovely warmer day with just a breeze, so I worked a few hours taking down all my outdoor winter / Xmas arrangements. Just the lights to come off the big spruce trees. Quick supper - Yaki Udon with shrimp

    Dinner 2022

    With our order of pickerel fillets, I also ordered 5 lbs pickerel cheeks. Stir-fried a bunch of vegetables, seasoned with oyster sauce. Tossed pickerel cheeks in salt, pepper, cornstarch, stir-fried with fresh ginger, a splash of Chinese cooking wine, and light soy sauce. The cheeks were great - texture like scallops. Enjoyed with coconut rice.

    Dinner 2022

    The latest Omicron variant has laid low several of my friends, so I was busy making wonton soups for deliveries. The broth and noodles were kept separate. Had lots of filling left, so it was stuffed tofu puffs with Chinese mushrooms in oyster sauce for our supper. My favourite part is the wilted lettuce drenched in oyster sauce! Grilled Lemongrass / Kaffir Lime leaves marinated lamb chops, coconut turmeric rice, mixed veg, and pickled asparagus for supper last night.

    Steamed Bao Buns

    This is a recipe that my Mom made and passed onto me. I usual;ly fill these with Char Siu, or chicken, Chinese sausage and Shitaki Mushroom. 4 cups all purpose flour 3/4 cup sugar 1/2 tsp salt 4 TSP baking powder Mix well. Add 2 cups MINUS 1 TBSP milk Knead for 10 minutes. Add 2 TSP veg oil - Knead 10 minutes, then rest for 10 minutes. Make into baos. Steam for 10 minutes, wipe off condensation inside lid, and steam for another 10 minutes. OR my s-i-l's: 4 cups cake flour 1 1/4 cup milk 1 cup sugar 4 TSP baking powder 1 tsp salt. Same process. NOW, we use prepared bao flour from Asian supermarket I made 3 doz Char Siu Baos yesterday

    Dinner 2022

    Delicious meals all around! A few from my kitchen: Preciously frozen scallops on sale 50% off - quick pan fry, with mushrooms and broccoli, and a Hoisin sauce Steamed the last of the whole dressed pickerel, with black beans and fermented Chinese olives. Had an abundance of bell peppers that needed using up. Stuffed with ground pork, shrimp, and waterchestnut and pan fried Picked up a package of marinated veal flak steak. A new product at our Safeway. It was good - 2 big pieces for $12.00. Grilled on stove top with lots leftover for lunch next day. Had most of the kids and grands home and we had seafood paella. Cooked the scallops separately to avoid over-cooking. An early supper before the city kids went home. Sticky Rice in Lotus Leaf is a favourite of one of my granddaughters. She is 8 and loves to cook, so we did Nor Mai Leen Yeep Joong. Augmented the meal with Ho Fun with gai lan, Har Gow and vegetable dumplings from the supermarket.
