  1. Dinner 2017 (Part 4)

    The store had spare ribs $3.50 / lb and St. Louis ribs @ 5.00 / lb. I got the spare ribs with the intent of trimming out the St. Louis cut and using the rest of the meat for something else, like sausage. At the last minute, though I decided to smoke the whole slab. I made a Rich Davis recipe for potato salad and we had some sourdough bread from a couple days ago. FYI Rich Davis is the person who created KC Masterpiece BBQ sauce.

    Marcus Samuelsson had a recipe for Steamed Salmon with Fennel and Citrus in the last issue of Fine Cooking magazine. I tried it as best as i could. There were some ingredients that I left out or substituted because I didn't have them and the likeliest places that would have them were neither near-by or close to each other. I substituted mussels for Madrid clam or cockles and fish stock for miso. I left out blood oranges.

    @Kim Shook, Thank you for the comment about the bread. The glaze on top is a lightly beaten egg. I might have added a splash of water too. I don't remember if I added any water this time but sometimes I do. Our dinner tonight was Vietnamese recipe for Chicken Wings and some stir fried vegetables

    @cakewalk Thank you. That is a batch or sourdough that I usually make into two small loaves but this time, I put it all in one loaf pan. I had to tent it to keep it from getting too brown because it was taking so long to finish in the oven.

    There were good prices on flat iron steaks so I made them with the usual sides: Baked potato, broiled tomato and some bread I baked the other day. But Charlie had his steak with kimchi, rice, seaweed and Yum Yum sauce.

    I made a recipe an Australian friend gave me called Beef Stifado. It supposed to be of Greek origin. My friend told me the 'Pimento' in the recipe is actually whole allspice berries. I used two red bell peppers before I found out differently. I thought they were referring to pimento peppers. It came out well anyway. I had Asian brown rice with it and half an apple sourdough bread roll.

    My son is taking a long weekend vacation in Denver with a group of friends at work so I am not doing much cooking. I made some apple sourdough bread rolls but all I did with the one I ate was to turn it into a hamburger bun.

    We had meatloaf last night

    @kayb, I didn't know there was any way to cook okra except the way you do. Well there's gumbo too. I am hungry for fried okra now.

    I was making a Cuban Pork Roast for dinner but it got done early and I got hungry early, so made Cuban sandwiches instead. I suspect it will be an early dinner for me and a late lunch for Charlie.

    I made some pulled pork in the Instant Pot for dinner today. We also had roasted green beans with Parm. cheese and corn relish.

    I went shopping for dinner late in the afternoon and looked for something that would not take a lot of time. I ended up getting an Italian style roast that I just had to microwave. I should have got one and seasoned it myself. I do have an instant pot now and didn't have to worry about the time but it turned out OK. I served it on some pasta and with some roasted asparagus over bernaise sauce.

    We also had steak last night and tacos tonight.

    In the South, Bacon Scallion Cream Sauce is known as dinner gravy, as opposed to breakfast gravy. My mom made it with bacon fat and milk instead of butter and cream.

    Hope every one had a happy Easter.
