Knock knock ! Can anyone join in ? You guys are all making such great stuff. I'm impressed. And taking good pictures of it, too. I need to practise my photography (yes, all right, and the cooking :rolleyes: ).

A couple of weeks ago I put together, off the cuff, a take on good ol' pork & cabbage when it was feeling cold again. I liked it so much I thought I'd do it again. Mostly I hate doing things the second time, it's always when they turn out worst, but I was quite happy this time.

So, Pot roast pork and cabbage with wine -

My guests generously brought along a strawberry custard tart from Takashimaya, to which my photo doesn't do justice -

QUIET!  People are trying to pontificate.

Daniel, where have you been hiding???

Daniel's generous and inspirational participation in this thread and others is missed!

"Under the dusty almond trees, ... stalls were set up which sold banana liquor, rolls, blood puddings, chopped fried meat, meat pies, sausage, yucca breads, crullers, buns, corn breads, puff pastes, longanizas, tripes, coconut nougats, rum toddies, along with all sorts of trifles, gewgaws, trinkets, and knickknacks, and cockfights and lottery tickets."

Blether: You're not fobbing anyone off with that, it looks like textbook fudge to me, I'll bet the texture is awesome.

Tonight I tried again with some extremely temperamental Linguini I bought last weekend. It caught me completely off guard the first time, since even though it is INCREDIBLY delicate, it's dried pasta, so I thought it would take a a minute. It took literally 10 seconds. :blink:

Please take a quick look at my stuff.

I baked sourdough bread yesterday, and made a couple of smaller baguettes so I could make french dip sandwiches using the leftover prime rib from the night before.  Served homemade warm potato chips on the side.

That has to be the best-looking sandwich I have seen in a long time. The bread and chips look fabulous too. Great job.

I can't remember who made them, but someone made some amazing looking cinnamon rolls a while back. Whoever you are, could you share the recipe? PM me if your prefer. I cannot get them out of my head. Thanks in advance.

This looks amazing Blether! Can you generously share/PM the recipe? I got a pork slab waiting to be roasted in my freezer now.

They were probably Ann's. Mine weren't that spectacular.

Practice. Do it over. Get it right.

Mostly, I want people to be as happy eating my food as I am cooking it.

Actually, that's a million views, not posts. Still impressive though

PLaying catch-up with food from weekend and the week:

mmmmm...skillet potatoes, quick, easy and hot!

gallery_40237_4099_7635.jpg

A riff on Alton Brown's Shrimp Scampi...the tomatoes add a great fresh touch

gallery_40237_4099_31855.jpg

buckwheat stir-fry with pineapple

gallery_40237_4099_58975.jpg

spinach, plantain mash, and green garbanzos with olive oil, sea salt and pepper

gallery_40237_4099_30366.jpg

Yet another Alton Brown dish...shallots, garlic and chicken in olive oil - really easy and makes the chicken sooooo tender

gallery_40237_4099_112952.jpg

spinach and quinoa made with tomato paste, boullion cubes and pickled jalapenos - much better than it sounds

Green garbanzos! I've never seen these before. They're so pretty...I thought they were large peas till I read your description. Are they fresh garbanzos? or a green variety? Where do you purchase such things? Inquiring minds want to know, please...

Thanks!

Got a great looking Ribeye and Hanger from Wells, based on the results of a recent steak tasting.

gallery_21049_162_138821.jpg

Decided to make the hanger today, with some kicked up McDonald's fries.

After a quick sear

The Onglet with McDonald's fries on the left tossed in garlic salt and on the right tossed in a nori based sushi rice topping - it sounds odd, but tastes great.

Daniel: Where ya been, man?

Blether: Welcome to Dinner! I look forward to seeing more of your cooking.

Marlene: You have been busy in the kitchen. Beautiful biscuits!

We made shrimp two ways: Millie Chan’s chili shrimp (left); and shrimp with garlic sauce (right); both from Breath of a Wok. Chili bean sauce, ginger, chilies, and scallions gave the chile shrimp a particularly nice flavor. Mrs. C. made basmati rice and roasted asparagus with lime juice.

Bruce, more about the differences between the two recipes, please! Seems to me I need to dig that book out from under the bed (a nightmare of cookbooks).

Daniel - I'm glad to see you, too! You and your lovely meals have been missed!

Judith - the trout is gorgeous! Drooling, here!

Marlene - thank you for the 1 millions clarification. I read it as posts and thought my computer was broken :wacko: ! (And those biscuits :wub: )

Gruzia - beautiful shrimp! I love that recipe and like the idea of adding tomatoes!

Susan - I am finally convinced. I am going to make potstickers as a family project when my 'baby' comes home from college this spring! I figure the three of us can make a few billion. They are just inspiring! Also, I think I said this to someone before, but no one in my house eats liver, so I want to have dinner at your house!!

Dinner tonight was Doddie's Ham and 'Crab' Salad on a croissant (and pretzels & carrots just to fill up the empty space). Thanks for the recipe, Doddie - even Mr. Kim liked it and he's not a 'Krab' fan!:

Susan: Each shrimp dish spent about four minutes in the wok. I made the shrimp with garlic sauce for younger son – it had no heat, but the chicken broth, rice wine, soy sauce, sugar, white pepper, garlic, ginger, and scallions gave it a pleasant flavor. The sauce for the chile shrimp had a nice mix of hot, salty, and aromatic, with a meaty fullness from the chile bean sauce (toban djan) and just enough sugar to round out the flavor. You can probably guess which one I liked best. :biggrin:

Quote from Mrs. C while “deveining”: “Boy, some of these shrimp are really full of sh*t.” :laugh:

By the way, your potstickers are things of beauty. :wub:

Edit: verb-noun agreement. Yeesh!
