  1. So here’s my system learned from various Japanese websites. Cook your rice as usual and then while it’s still hot, and this is important, wrap portions in plastic wrap. Don’t compress it too much but make sure it’s properly wrapped. Allow it to cool (do not refrigerate it) and then put the wrapped portions in a Ziploc bag and into the freezer. I freeze approximately 150 g of cooked rice in each parcel and when ready to use it put it in the microwave for about two minutes and it’s usually perfect. Depends of course on the power of your microwave as always.

    The Great Freezer Clean: 2019

    @Kerry Beal Freezer looks fabulous. I think you’re probably good for another 10 years!

    Sometimes of necessity it must be simple. Chicken thighs done in the CSO with a side of slow cooked onions and peppers.
  5. Thank you. It certainly hit the spot. And finding a Vietnamese restaurant that is only just around the corner is just a double bonus.

    Breakfast 2019

    Planned over chicken livers with garlic chives and Campari tomatoes. This reheated beautifully in the Cuisinart steam oven at 325°F steam bake for 15 minutes.
  7. Going out for lunch was not an option today so after a lovely visit at my house @Kerry Beal ventured out to find something to eat for us. After asking Siri for lunch recommendations we found this. l don’t think we could’ve been more excited. Neither one of us had any idea that it existed. Grilled pork banh mi for moi. We shared the lone spring roll. Kerry had ordered four but for some reason only one showed up. Meat lovers chicken and pork chop over rice for Kerry. I am sure we will be visiting this place in the very near future to sample more of their food.

    Food recalls

    I think it is much more than the number of peanut allergies. Most schools in Ontario below high school level forbid anything that contains peanuts so that if your child is not allergic you still need a source of nut free treats.

    @mgaretz Thanks for sharing the wine naming story. I had also forgotten how good Shake ‘n’ Bake pork chops can be.

    Lunch 2019

    Thank you so much. We are a mutual admiration society because your meals always make my mouth water!
  11. My freezer contains no more chicken. I am not celebrating. Chicken thighs dredged in potato starch and fried. The sauce was tomato and ponzu. The garlic in the sauce was not a good idea in my opinion and if I were to repeat it I would leave it out. There is rice under there also. It came from my freezer but is constantly being replaced so I don’t figure it into any equation related to the challenge.
  12. Yes, it is a difficult juggling job. I notice that @liamsaunt has lots of chicken in her freezer whereas I just took out the last two thighs. I can’t live without chicken so some more will need to go in there! But staying on top of what’s there will help I am certain.

    Letch did not get me anything that sounded a bit appetizing so I’m going to guess the Hungarian dish letcho? I love the look of the bread.
  14. Paul Young’s Classic Fudge Brownies.
  15. This took care of the chicken livers. They had been in the freezer quite a long time but had been vacuum packed so they survived very well. I winged the preparation using garlic chives, Campari tomatoes and the usual suspects of Japanese seasonings – – soy sauce, sake, mirin, and a final drizzle of sesame oil. I cooked up the whole half pound so I have another meal in the fridge.
