    Dinner 2020

    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

    Dinner 2020

    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

    Dinner 2020

    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.

    Dinner 2020

    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

    Lunch 2020

    Superstore Instacart Grocery Delivery brought me two beautiful heads of cauliflower. Oven roasted cauliflower steak with Creole seasoning, steamed green beans and tomato chunks = great lunch! From the freezer, some Spicy Moroccan Spicy Beef Cigars with salsa along with a small bowl of Kale and Cauliflower soup Made lots of wonton soup to share with the neighbors who clear our driveway whenever there is snow.

    Spring...winter...spring...winter! Weather can't seem to settle, but eating never wavers 😋 Quick Stove-top Paella using up a box of frozen cooked mussels and clam meat. Didn't have chorizo but I did have spicy turkey "pepperoni sticks", so they went in as well. This virus is helping me, once again, to cook thru' my freezer - hamburger patties that I bought for a large family gathering = Hamburger Steak / Salisbury Steak with onion gravy. Brought back warm me

    Snow day after +12C temperatures. Sure fooled me; I thought it was spring! Made a big pot, doled out to neighbors and family who came to pick up from the driveway. Hot 'n' Sour Soup

    Dinner 2020

    Double whammy here on the prairies - pandemic and snow! Cooking and eating are the only things that will save my sanity! Using the air fryer, I made a version of the Breaded spareribs we served at our restaurant as appetizers. Instead of cracker meal (soda cracker crumbs) and deep frying, I coated the ribs with eff and cornstarch. These were fried in the Ninja Foodie for 30 minutes, turning twice. To make our Sweet & Sour Sauce and to keep Weight Watcher Points down, I used sugar-free ketsup, sugar free maple syrup (adde

    Dinner 2020

    Using another of the Granny's seasoned turkey breasts and a few shrimp - brushed all protein with low-fat mayo and coated with panko-shredded coconut mix. These strips were done in the air-fry as well as the chips. Asparagus is at a good price at the moment - $1.98 / lb. Finally went out to the supermarkets during the "Seniors Only" time, 7 am - 8 am, and picked up all we would need for the next couple of weeks. Main items were fresh fruit and vegetables, and the trout. Slow-roasted Steelhead trout with f

    Dinner 2020

    Caribbean Beef Stew with Coconut Basmati rice The spice from jerk seasoning was tempered by the sweet potato chunks and diced pineapple - AND the bigger chunks on the side/ This may because the new beef stew favourite!

    Dinner 2020

    Using up bits and pieces of seafood (pickerel trimmings, clam meat, shrimp) in the freezer, plus a box of cooked "PEI Mussels" that I picked up for $4.99 - Creamy Seafood Chowder. Salad was lovely and chunky, other than the bowl I steamed for the hubby who does not like raw broccoli and cauliflower.

    It's difficult times all over the world. DO hope you will have good emotional support around you.
  20. Using up a bag of roasted chicken carcasses, I made the Old-World Mushroom-Barley Soup with Turkey (chicken in my case) from the Weight Watchers Cook Comfort cookbook. It was good!

    Dinner 2020

    Thai Coconut Curry Chicken in Instant Pot - Did the veg for too long at 20 min on high before adding the seared chicken breast. Much of the potato and sweet potato chunks "melted", but all good as that thickened the broth. .

    I LOVE the looks of this! Reminds me of the goji leaf soup my grandma used to make for me, albeit without the ravioli / tortillini.
