    Dinner 2021

    Charlie had friends over again last weekend for a BBQ. I smoked pulled pork and ribs and grilled some lamb on skewers. Stuff was coming out of the smoker while they were arriving so I didn't think to take pictures but the next day, we had more grilled lamb with leftover sides.
  2. Maybe adding salt, pepper and garlic, perhaps some herbs like basil and oregano might perk it up.
  3. This is a boiled fruit dressing I use with a fruit salad that always gets good reviews. 2/3 cup fresh orange juice 1/3 cup fresh lemon juice 1/3 cup packed brown sugar 1/2 teaspoon grated orange zest 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon zest 1 teaspoon vanilla extract Directions Bring orange juice, lemon juice, brown sugar, orange zest, and lemon zest to a boil in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat, and stir in vanilla extract. Set aside to cool.

    Dinner 2021

    Charlie has made several friends going to car meets with his 1993 Caddy Fleetwood and asked if he could have them over for BBQ this weekend. They came today and I smoked a brisket, pork ribs. Also had hot dogs-not pictured- and several sides.
  5. I believe this one is from James Beard. I think mayonnaise replaced these salad dressings when it became commercially available.

  6. I haven't found the one I am looking for but here is one from a 1947 cook book. There is another one that I can type for you if you want it. The only ingredient that is has that this one does not is lemon juice.

  7. I have that dressing. It was used on potato salad at a Swedish restaurant years and years ago. Give me a little time to try and find it.

    The store had loin back ribs on sale @ buy one get one free. I believe loin back ribs are also called baby back but these had longer, more curved and meatier bones than I expected. (I am not complining) With the discount, they were only $10.50 per rack.

    While I was at the store, Charlie called and suggested steak for dinner. I picked out a T-Bone because it was the cheapest of the good steaks and one was big enough for both of is. I should have asked why Porterhouse steaks were a dollar a pound more. They are both from the same part of the cow. Porterhouse is the same as a T-bone only bigger. It will cost more because it's bigger. It should not cost more because of its name. Charlie had Mac N Cheese with his. I had some corn and baked potato. I also had a small piece of Stilton cheese.

    The white is kimchi (pickled) but it isn't spicy and it is made with diakon radish. In the jar, it's in big chunks, and I cut it into slices for serving.

    I went to an Asian grocery today so we had Korean food: Beef bulgogi, two kinds of kim chi and rice. We also had some kim bob but we ate that while I was cooking the bulgogi.

    I asked Charlie what he wanted for Easter. I gave him a choice of ham, lamb, turkey, roast beef or Cornish hens. He chose Cornish hens. While I was at the store, I also picked up a small lamb roast which I braised with wine and rosemary. I liked the hens better. We also had deviled eggs, rice, creamed corn and strawberries with whipped cream and angel food cake.

    I used to live by the largest lake in Kansas and they would (maybe still do) have a fishing contest once a year with money awarded to anyone who caught and turned in alive various crappie who had been tagged. The biggest money award fish was caught by someone who didn't know there was a prize and filleted the fish. I made Mongolian Beef for dinner. Charlie said it was good.

    Dinner plans for yesterday were delayed so the marinade for the pork chops and the brine for the apricots and radishes were on overnight instead of a couple hours. I think they turned out better that way.
  15. Koreans like the combos in the videos. I was suggesting stuff you might like to substitute. A video that followed used leaf lettuce and grated carrots. My son is Korean. He has no problem with Spam. He just used some in kim chi stew. His grandmother put cold hot dogs in kim bob.
