  1. DARTO Carbon Steel Pans info@dartointernational.com via gmail.mcsv.net DARTO /// Presale - Our n.27 pan, thicker than usual I got an email with this announcement and thought I'd pass it on. If I needed one, I'd prefer one with a bigger diameter. I have one Darto which is the largest diameter and one from Made in (France) that is larger and I like it OK.

    Charlie likes Philly Cheesesteak sandwiches so I hoped he would like this Cheesesteak casserole. He said it was really good.

    We had a quick and simple dinner tonight. We split an ear of corn and split half a potato. He was still making some mac and cheese when I took the picture.

    The ingredients in the dip follows. The onion is cooked in the butter until soft then the other ingredients except the shredded cheese are added and put in a baking dish, the shredded cheese is added on top and baked @ 350 for about 20 minutes. I added about one or two ounces of the cheese spread pictured below before I transferred it to a baking dish. I also used blackeyed peas cooked from dried instead of canned. I prefer the taste of fresh cooked peas to those of canned. PS I also mashed some of the peas while still in the skillet. 1 tablespoon butter 1 small onion, dice

    Since Charlie is getting tired of blackeyed peas, I made a chip dip with them and he liked that. He ate almost half of that. I cooked navy beans with the ham hocks and collard greens instead. Even though we have this same meal every New Years Day and only then, we are both getting tired of it. I think next year I will make Hoppin' John instead. Charlie likes rice and beans so maybe he will like it too. One year Cassie wanted to have a Mexican New Years dinner and we didn't have the other meal at all and the next day I slipped on some ice and broke every bone in my ankle so I am loathe to

    That will be collards, ham hocks, corn bread, and black eyed peas. I am going to do navy beans for Charlie and have black eyed peas in a dip with corn chips. All supposed to be symbols of good luck, progress and prosperity. I have read that during the Civil War, the Northern soldiers burned all the crops but left the black eyed peas alone. They thought it must be a crop for the animals, not people.

    In order to make up a little for Charlies less than enthusiastic expectation for tomorrows traditional Southern New Years Day dinner, I made our NYE dinner with things he really likes. I also made a black eyed pea chip dip instead of just plain ones for tomorrow too. He might like them better with rice but I don't. There was a cartoon in todays Kansas City Star that said "Top Ten Moments of 2020" It showed tonight's clock with ten seconds left until midnight.

    I asked Charlie if he wanted rib roast, ham or turkey for Christmas dinner. He said he wanted Thanksgiving dinner again. Turkey. Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas.

    Charlie wanted a repeat of Thanksgiving dinner for tomorrow and since I used a lot of the same ingredients in game hens, we had those tonight.

    Charlies grandparents lived in Koreatown for a while. He stayed with them one summer when I was finishing up my masters degree. The main reason we don't have lettuce very often is because I don't usually have the right kind in the refrigerator and seldom think far enough ahead to get some first. I like it, Charlie is eh about it. Never had shiso. Not sure I have ever seen it at the store. I'll have to pay more attention when I go to the Asian market.

    We did have rice with it and more kimchi. Sometimes we use laver for a wrap but seldom think to use lettuce.

    Spicy pork bulgogi cooked with kimchi and galbi.

    Our dinner tonight was an Asian style beef stir-fry with some steamed vegetables and rice.

    I accidentally posted our dinner in the wrong place. Charlie requested a crab boil dinner after he saw a large box of seafood delivered at his cousin's yesterday.

    Lunch 2020

    Charlie was at his cousins house when he took delivery of a large box of seafood. It made him hungry for a crab boil type dinner so that is what we had tonight.

    I have not felt up to doing much cooking lately but with today coming up and the family having cancelled the big get together a couple months ago, I had been planning for this ever since then. The two of us won't be complaining about not having enough left-overs this year. Charlie told me about having some cornbread at his cousin's house made with some yellow cake mix so I gave that a try. It was good, just barely corn bread and no where near cake.

    I asked Charlie what he thought about meatloaf tonight. He said OK but didn't sound very enthusiastic about it. So I said how about some pasta with ham and a cream sauce and he liked that idea better. The original recipe called for bucatini and pancetta but those aren't all that easy to get here in Kansas, especially not in an hour or two. So I substituted bacon and ham; they are cheaper too. It probably didn't taste anything like it was intended but it was still good and filling.

    We had Cornish hens (at Charles request) with rice, spinach and corn muffins.

    Happy Birthday @CantCookStillTry. Dinner was last minute. I doubt there was more than 45 minutes between starting to cook and putting dirty dishes in the sink. Crispy Pork Chops and potatoes. Should have made gravy but didn't.

    Thanks. They were a gift from my son.

    I only needed two pound of pork shoulder but three was the smallest I found, so I cut off a pound and used it for making sausage. I used the rest of the roast to make carnitas and put it in grilled cheese sandwiches. They were really good. The recipe is at the blogspot at the bottom of this posting.

    I came across some recipes for one and thought they would be a lot easier to double than the ones needed to be cut down. This is one of the two I saved: Salmon and Brussels sprouts. The sauce is Hoisin based.

    Thanks Heidih. I never thought of it that way. It was a four unit apartment. Ours was top left. It had a walk in pantry and quarter-sawn oak and glass built- in china cabinet in the dining room.
