    Lunch! What'd ya have? (2018)

    Japanese white stew made with rotisserie chicken. One can buy roux for this just as one can buy it to make curry. However, no roux was harmed in the making of this stew. Served with some rice. I had serious doubts about this dish but it is in fact quite tasty. There are so many different recipes out there so I just basically winged it. I had a tiny amount of cream cheese left over from another project so it went in there as I had found at least one recipe that used cream cheese!

    Challenging myself to use a rotisserie chicken in as many Japanese dishes as I can. Onigirazu with lettuce, oven dried tomatoes and sliced rotisserie chicken breast. Next time I would add some kewpie mayonnaise.

    Dinner 2018 (Part 1)

    Rice paper wrappers with rotisserie chicken, lettuce and kimchi. Dipping sauce is sriracha mayo with a little extra kimchi thrown in because you can never have too much kimchi.

    Costco rotisserie chicken thigh and a vermicelli noodle and seaweed salad. Not sure if it’s a late lunch, an early dinner or a combination of both.

    Apparently it was used by many indigenous tribes as both a vegetable and the seeds were ground into a flour for breadmaking. That is according to Mr. Google. Have not verified this information. Perhaps some of our foragers will chime in. I am thinking especially of @gfron1 Edited to add: I am sure I have seen it somewhere in the wild. I’m not sure where.
  6. I would suspect it does make a difference whether it’s over water or in water. The initial question was about bones in water.
  7. Roast? Braise? Stew? Just saying.

    Probably not the first choice of dieticians for a healthy breakfast but somebody had to do it. Chocolate truffle cheesecake done in the Instant Pot. It is part of a project so no sharing information at the moment.
  9. Water would not have been my choice. Roasting implies dry heat. If I was really concerned about things sticking to the pan I would’ve lined it with nonstick foil. In order to get these bones to roast you are first going to have to drive off one and a half cups of water.

    Used to love smoked eel but it stopped loving me! Just too rich!

    Sardine and lettuce onigirazu.
  12. Kerry operates the iPhone camera. I know you were discussing the food but I love the blue pattern plates. They remind me very much of Royal Copenhagen tableware.
  13. Yesterday Kerry and I returned to a favourite place, Salad Thai. We both opted for just water to drink this time. No photographs. You’d recognize it anywhere. We shared the following: Crispy calamari. This was just incredibly tender. Penang chicken curry. Drunken noodles with chicken. Bowl of rice. A very satisfactory lunch.
