    Nothing special. It was Brussels sprouts (from frozen actually) microwaved a la Voltaggio, then processed with butter, salt, pepper and garlic powder in the Blendtec Twister jar.

  5. Dinner 2017 (Part 4)

    A couple of recent dinners: Shrimp with beets, arugula and sherry vinaigrette dressing: Cincinnati Chili (my own) over spaghetti and a dog: For those of you that remember, a few weeks ago I posted about having Cincinnati chili while I was there, and the supposed "way-better-than-Skyline" chili left a lot to be desired. The next day I braved Skyline for lunch and had the chili over spaghetti and also over a Coney (a hot dog). While still nowhere as good as mine, it was better than what I had the night before.

    I am on the road and will be in the Cincy area for 5 days. My wife grew up here and missed Cincinnati Chili, so I make it for her based on the CI recipe. But I have never had the real thing until tonight. Skyline is probably the most famous but many reviewers and my brother-in-law say it's not that good. So I went to a place near where I am staying that got great reviews for their chili. Meh. Mine is so much better! Maybe I will try Skyline tomorrow but if what I had is supposedly so much better, I can't say I'm excited about it.

    I forgot to take pictures, but my daughter and her new boyfriend are in town staying with us, and he's a vegetarian, and my daughter is lactose and gluten intolerant. I made Thai-style fried rice with pineapple, raisins, peas, cashews, green onion and tempeh for the main protein. I stir-fried the tempeh first with garlic and some gluten free soy sauce. Served with a stir fry of bok choy and carrots in hoisin sauce. Dessert was my dairy-free chocolate mousse, topped with assorted berries.

    A couple of dinners. Sunday was salmon, cooked SV then torch-seared with a maple-bourbon glaze, served with Brussels Sprouts cooked a la Voltaggio with olive oil and salt: Last night was beef stew, made in the electric pressure cooker, with chuck, onion, carrot, potato, parsnip, barley and some dried porcini. I forgot to put in the peas and bay leaf, but it was yummy nonetheless!

    We were out and about and arrived home too late to wait to make the planned dinner, so I made tuna salad sandwiches on homemade rye bread, carrots a la Voltaggio and salad.
  11. Dinner 2017 (Part 4)

    This was a real mish-mash-hash: Had leftover homemade Spanish Rice and leftover tri-tip, so I combined them with some sauteed onions and peas.

    El Pollo Loco-style chicken with Brussels Sprouts and salad.
  13. Dinner 2017 (Part 3)

    Orange chicken (from a Costco box, but made in the air fryer), basamati rice and peas. Dessert was pineapple upside down cake, a request from my wife. First time I have made it.
