  1. Dinner 2017 (Part 2)

    @Shelby I copied your recipe and plan to give it a try soon. Looks yummy.
  2. Dinner 2017 (Part 2)

    I got some chorizo the other day and decided to have sandwiches made with them today. The sauce is lemony olive oil and cilantro. The toppings are onions and roasted bell peppers

    I wanted clams or oysters for an appetizer but no one had any so I settled for shrimp. It was marinated, then sauced with honey, soy sauce, garlic and ginger. Charlie said it would make a great chicken teriyaki sauce if I thickened it. It was good with the steak too.

    Well son came home and liked the chowder. He had three bowls.
  5. Dinner 2017 (Part 2)

    I made a fish chowder for dinner tonight. Charlie isn't home yet and when he does, he may want to go to Bonito Michoacan down the street for something more substantial but it's what I wanted for tonight.

    I tried a different recipe for pot roast today. It was a NY Times recipe for Japanese Style Pot Roast from Mark Bittman.

    We had pork chops with Jerk seasoning, brown sugar, pineapple, ponzu and mushrooms. Dessert was strawberry shortcake. I didn't take a picture of the Super Bowl food but it was a chili bar with lots of toppings and mix-ins, hot dogs and corn chips with a nacho dip.

    Tonight was meatloaf, potatoes, brussels sprouts and salad.

    Our dinner was Instant Pot Chuck Roast with gravy, turnips, parsnips and potatoes, also had green beans and sourdough bread.
  10. DARTO pans

    When the pan my son ordered came, they sent three. The packer must have grabbed three instead of one by mistake. He gave the other two to other people. I wish they made an 11 or 12-inch one.
  11. I checked my blog and counted 7 meals made from scratch so far this month. The other meals were delivery pizza, left overs, sandwiches made with store bought cold cuts and home made bread or cheese, dry salami, celery, and crackers. Charlie was going to take me out to an Irish pub on the Plaza this weekend but we got weathered in with ice storms two days in a row.

    I discovered a PPS show last weekend called Movable Feast and tried some recipes from their website. First I baked some sourdough bread for soaking up some of the beer sauce with Beer Steamed Mussels, Pecan Apricot rice, and Japanese Beef Tataki.
  13. DARTO pans

    I had not heard of Darto until now. Last year I thought about getting a forged iron skillet from one place but when I went there, my computer warned me that it was infected with a virus. A little later I found some nice ones from a forge in Seattle but they were sold out before I got around to getting one and they are still not available there a year later. In November I saw one from Aus-Ion and was about to order one when my son sternly told me not to buy anything for myself at Christmas time so I put it and an Instant Pot on my Christmas wish list and he got both for me. Here is the skillet after I have seasoned it. It is a little under 10 1/2 inches. It's formed in one piece. Nothing riveted or welded. The handle is vented to keep the handle cool
