    Lunch 2021

    Yesterday I made my first meal since early July; I had hand surgery on July 5. This Friday the doctor OK'd me for light KP duty (kudos to my husband for his divine cooking, excellent ordering of to-go and deliveries, not to mention helping me dress for the initial 2 weeks). I made this recipe (sorry, no pics...out of practice) https://www.washingtonpost.com/recipes/masala-chicken/17928/?itid=lk_inline_manual_25 Developed by Chetna Makan, a British Bake-Off finalist 2014. The flavors were fine, but it didn't get crispy enough which is likely due to my Fear of Frying. Made a raita with Persian cucumbers using the only non-sugared yogurt we can find here (from a local goat farm). I took an open jar of locally made mango chutney and ramped it up with garam masala, fresh ginger, fresh serrano peppers. All in all a fine meal that I want to try again to see if I can get a better crust. Decided it needs a 3rd condiment...multiple Indian condiments are essential to a great meal IMO. This morning a whipped up some Lime Pickle...I sliced the small smooth Key-type limes (mostly all we see here) very thin. I am hoping they will be edible in 7-10 days.

    Dinner 2021

    Light meal....tostadas topped with grilled/charred zucchini strips, goat cheese and a few hefty splashes of Cholula hot sauce. Cholula is made here in Chapala; recently sold to a conglomerate. Hope the quality stays up there.

    Lunch 2021

    Grilled open-face Italian sliders. Leftover day. Still have a dozen (now frozen) very good herbed dinner rolls that are delivered with carryout. Cut one into 4 slices. Topped with leftover cooked Italian sausage, fried onions and peppers, cheese and fresh basil. Grilled in olive oil in frypan with lid, until crusty, hot and oozy. Served with the rest of a half a cucumber found hiding in the produce drawer.

    Looking for a way to use some brussels sprouts lingering in the fridge. Found this recipe. I used hot Italian sausage. No chives available here, so I minced some shallot and added it to pan with the sausage and sprouts. https://www.foodandwine.com/recipes/spaghetti-brussels-sprouts-and-sausage-breadcrumb-topping It was very tasty, but wish my photo looked as good as the one in Food & Wine 😎

    @mgaretz It kinda looks like a Christmas tree. Or have I had too much eggnog?
  23. I will never again under-estimate the impact of filling an instant pot with a huge volume of very cold and very thick mole' sauce and 2 kilos of turkey thighs. I will never again under-estimate the impact of consuming rosemary mojitos prior to making dinner. Our Christmas Eve dinner plate:
  24. We aren't cocktail drinkers, but hey, it's Christmas and my rosemary bush needed a haircut. Used this recipe, https://thebuzzmagazines.com/recipes/rosemary-mojitos
