    Dinner 2020

    Same but no browning, only cooked barely enough with a drop of water, covered, at high heat a few minutes, no water left. Me and the husband like also cut in half face down in the blue steel until charred and just tender but the kids only like the first method. Yesterday I make some steamed bread, some spanish charcuterie, xialongbao (bought) and sauté broccoli. Tonight I roasted a chicken, French beans, salad, some steamed rice and it is that time of the year, the husband went to Costco and couldn’t resist this cheap Serrano.

    Hello. A bit distracted these days, didn’t take pictures of meals. Today we roasted a rose fish, pan fried some barrel fish, sauté watercress and shiitake mushrooms and roasted potatoes
  4. My mother in law, agitated, called my husband and was pointing below the bookshelves. Since the conversation was in Chinese I didn’t understand what she saw... I thought an iguana or a cockroach but it turned out to be a crab 🤣🤣🤣 my husband put it in the freezer to add to the next fish soup 😁

    The first time I cooked it, I was expecting something closer to spanish mackerel, in reality it is pretty mild and not too fatty, so it is easy to overcook it.

    My husband got a LOT of king fish yesterday, I needed to cook it. So I cooked it two ways, one dipped in extra virgin olive oil, then panko with dry oregano and pan fried, then, second way, I chopped the meat roughly added grated parmigiano, one egg, scallions, parsley and a little panko, tiny bit of water, made flat fish balls, dusted with flour, pan fried and added chilies, more scallions and parsley and a little bit of mutti tomato polpa and cooked briefly. It was really nice, I will make it again. Then my husband made some smoked short ribs. Some zucchini and steamed rice.

    yes, I used to cook for them every Saturday when in Brooklyn :-). Tofu: I think I made this dish short time ago and shared the procedure in this thread. This time too much multitasking 😁 and came a little dry 😐

    My mother in law moved in with us today, she was relying on having someone cooking for my father in law and herself, not many good meals in the last 6 months. I will try to feed her well😊. I fried shrimps, Chinese pork roast, tofu, salad, sauté kale and steamed rice not pictured

    Today the husband smoked ribs. Also it is tradition in my hometown to start making pettole, from now up to the end of the year any occasion is good. Usually they are dipped in vincotto but I didn’t have it, so I dipped them in honey and some rolled in sugar. Since it was too much dough I made a focaccia that is basically 100% hydration. Some salad and asparagus on the side.

    So long without braising some meat! Living in a hot climate is cool but sometimes you stop eating some things because too hot. It’s a little windy out so I called it a cool day 😁The kids were happy with short ribs. Too bad I didn’t have polenta in the house. Also some beets and a little leftover rice.

    sound good, then when you pound them they are going to get thinner and larger 👍

    thank you, @Dejah😊 this tuna was frozen, bought from the supermarket. I think the fresh tuna is really superior but the frozen tuna can be decent. I found huge differences in the frozen tuna quality. Costco tuna is generally good. I just sear it in a very hot pan or grill pan. Recently I have been into Maangchi seasoning sauce, very easy to make and that is what’s on the tuna in the picture. If your husband doesn’t like it raw, you can try a Sicilian recipe. When is still semi frozen you slicenthe tuna very thin, a little thicker than carpaccio style. Place the slices in 2 sheets of parchment
  15. Basilicatese, this is cute. Lucani are the people of Basilicata also known as Lucania. Lucano=from Basilicata. For what I read it has a mix of 30 herbs. Have you ever tried DonCiccio guys, it’s a friend making liqueurs in the US, so good
