    Lunch 2021

    Another we have veggies to use up, what can we make them them. Well potatoes and red pepper + more = HASH! I found the linked recipe from googling for ideas. We added an egg and zucchini to the recipe list and it was SO GOOD.

    Dinner 2021

    Tonight dinner was Stir Fry Tacos! Got the idea from Hello Fresh, it's a slaw, chicken, onions, Asian sauce, corn, sour cream, and crispy onions. Tortilla is homemade from masa. Hello Fresh sends the crap that Robert Rodriguez says should just go into the trash

    Dinner 2021

    Dinner today was supposed to be Dinner last night, but didn't happen. This is REALLY good, we'll be doing this again. It's Braised Cauliflower with Asian Flavors from Jack Bishop's Vegetables Everyday (eG-friendly Amazon.com link) Which I highly recommend if you like a book full of good ways to cook veggies.

    Dinner 2021

    We had a big beefsteak tomato from our CSA we wanted to use up. So I went looking for recipes and found this: https://cookieandkate.com/spaghetti-with-fresh-tomato-sauce/ Wanted to open some wine and this paired really well with a 2015 de la Guerra Chardonnay from HDV. The Zucchini is from Vegetables Everyday by Jack Bishop.
  7. My wife is looking forward the next set :) She's the pastry chef around here.

    Lunch 2021

    We are getting boxes from a CSA this summer, this past week it came with radishes and bok choy. Luckily they provided a recipe they got from vegetariantimes.com Sweet ‘n Sour Bok Choy and Radish Stir Fry It was much better then I expected.

    Dinner 2021

    For us it's always about the cat getting 10-20% so I only get 40% For pizza the goal is 55 vs 45 but sometimes it looks more like 65 vs 35

    Dinner 2021

    3 dinners pictured, because all 3 were Pizza! Dough out of Modernist Bread. It's 90F+ Plus so bit hot for pizza, but it's my Birthday this week so I don't care Sausage, Onions, Red Pepper, and some Basil. 3rd time the whole pie looked good, the non meat side is my wifes: We never get pizza unless we make it - looking forward to Modernist Pizza!

    Lunch 2021

    Today it's Wagyu Sirloin and more asparagus - they didn't have ribeye which is prefered, but this isn't too bad. For dessert my wife made me panna cotta - which is my favorite dessert, and it's my birthday in 2 days. Since I don't drink much wine midweek this continued the 2008 Cab from Whitehall Lanes I had yesterday. I had some fancy salt with the steak - that's all that's needed.

    Lunch 2021

    Some Garlic pork (I cut up garlic and included it around the pork while Sous vide) and asparagus. Paired with a 2008 Cab (Wine will go better with the steak tomorrow.)
  13. I got confirmation I was one of the first 100 to order on the MC site: Here's the perks, I wonder how good the discount on future orders is. • Invitation to an exclusive virtual Q & A with coauthor and Modernist Cuisine Chef Francisco Migoya. He’ll give recipe recommendations, share some of his favorite pizza discoveries, and answer questions. • A 2022 Modernist Pizza wall calendar. • A signed bookplate by the authors. • Discounts on future book orders through the Modernist Cuisine Shop.

    Lunch 2021

    We had non-family member guests over for the first time in well over a year, to celebrate I made a full sized Chicken Bastilla, the first time we made this we were skeptical and made 1/2. Of course it was good this time too.
  15. I preordered direct, hopefully I'm in the first 100 since that offered some bonuses.

    Dinner 2021

    Tonight, bangers and mash - I forgot the Basil but it's still good.

    Lunch 2021

    Finishing up the 09 Cab, Duroc pork chops were on sale, so I googled for Sauce ideas and this is Garlic, Mustard, Butter/Cream sauce. I went a bit crazy on the garlic but it's SO good. Tossed a little fresh Tyme on top and it's a but excessive sauce:

    Dinner 2021

    Tonight we continue with the 2009 cab. My wife does not do cooked beef (she will eat a good beef tartar) so she made a carmalized onion, pepper, and mushroom tart. I continued with my American waygu this time with onions and asparagus.

    Dinner 2021

    I often drink aged cabs, this was pretty unique as it had a lot more fruit left after 12 years then I would expect. This was not 100% cab, but cab with some other Bordeaux grapes mixed in (though by far majority cab) so that could be the reason. Usually I drink 100% aged cabs and the good ones are complex w/o any tannins left. I've been working on 2007 from my cellar, soon I'll break into the 2008. I got 2 bottles of this 09 cab, I'm going to save the other one for a year or two and see how that much age changes it further. I have had very well aged French wine at a high end French restaurant in Tokyo and I wouldn't say it's really any different to my palette being old world vs new. I just thoroughly enjoy aged wine.

    Dinner 2021

    Today I got my 1st Covid-19 Vaccine, and last week I received a 2009 Stone Edge Farms Cab. So why not celebrate and try a aged wine. So that means American Wagyu ribeye with some asparagus and fried potatoes. And some nice salt for the steak.

    Lunch 2021

    So I do like good quality Ham, but it's hard to buy in small quantities.. So I was shocked to see small steaks of high quality ham at my local upscale grocery. I improvised a glaze - the ham is ~9.5 ozs, served with mashed potato and paired with a Hagafen Dry Riesling (0% R.S.) which worked quite well.

    Dinner 2021

    Last night and tonight, and tomorrow night will all be the same thing! Duck Kefta Tagine from The New Mediterranean Table I've posted it before, it's one of my favorite dishes I've cooked at home so I figure I'll make it 3x a year or so. Paired with a 2014 HdV Syrah. Meat balls are not perfectly round, I sous vided these in a zip top bag so they were not as compressed, but still don't stay round

    Another one of Giada's recipes from one of her cookbooks: Banger's and Mash, Sausage is chicken, there's celery root in with the potatoes.

    Dinner 2021

    Tonight Lemon and Chive Risotto from Food Network with Gianda: https://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/giada-de-laurentiis/lemon-and-chive-risotto-5592292 Same episode as the sole - which we actually made for lunch today (though since I posted it last weekend I did not take pictures again) It's very good risotto, I modified the recipe method to use a pressure cooker ala the method in Modernist Cuisine at Home. So we didn't make 5 cups of the lemon stock but more like enough for 2-3 times.
