I would eat this for breakfast. That is one of the best pictures of a Pulled Pork Sandwich EVER.

Ann_T, thank you. It was tasty, too! We had talked back and forth about whether or not to toast the roll. So glad we decided to toast it!

That may be the most gorgeous looking piece of salmon I ever saw. Would have never thought of marrow with salmon.

 

Thank you. It is a lovely combination. The best bite on that whole steak is the part where you get a bit of marrow and salmon together.

New Orleans red beans and rice. I didn't have a cracked ham bone, so I used a mixture of ham stock and pork neck bones. Beans were RG sangre de toro.

Baby mesclun and Bordeaux spinach salad

Bordeaux spinach is an heirloom variety of spinach -- more tender leaves with a slightly sweet taste.

The vinaigrette is my standard recipe of 1/2 large shallot (minced), 2 tablespoons red wine, 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar, 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, sea salt and black pepper. That makes more than enough vinaigrette for this salad; I just save the remainder for future use.

I know it doesn't look like much, but sometimes a simple green salad is what you need.

Saag paneer, rice, lime chutney

The paneer is from Tonjes Farm Dairy, the spinach was frozen (since it'll be at least 2 more months before regular spinach appears at USGM).

I skipped frying the paneer in ghee; I'll do that next time. Recipe is from Saveur, here: http://www.saveur.com/article/Recipes/Spinach-with-Fresh-Indian-Cheese-

I also subbed the last of my chipotle peppers instead of the serrano. Going to have to buy some more dried peppers from Kalustyan's soon.

I wasn't willing to believe that this

http://forums.egullet.org/topic/147265-dinner-2014-part-2/?p=1956632

technique could only be used with fish. It was just too good. So here I used it with home-made, frozen meatballs, scallions, asparagus, cocktail tomatoes and potatoes. Talk about FAST FOOD!

We had our corned beef dinner today.  Corned beef was homemade then simmered in beer with garlic and other seasonings.  Cabbage served with a balsamic reduction. new potatoes boiled, smashed, buttered, seasoned and roasted.  We also had soda bread, rutabagas and carrots.

Looks nice.

 

Just to confirm - your "dinner" is the same as "lunch" a.k.a. the mid-day meal, yes?

 We had it around 3pm. It was our big meal of the day.  I planned it for then because Cassie works in the evening on Sundays.  We'll probably  just have snacks or sandwiches later on.

Lovely!

 

I'm wondering, though, what the chinese characters are for "cha misua"? [What dialect group are you, if I could ask?]

 

Normally, I would think of "misua" as "meen seen" (Cantonese) = 麵線 = Mee sua (Hokkien) = thin WHEAT noodles.  Is there another name for the rice noodles you used?

Ah, I see, thanks.  

 

What do you call the "mid-day meal", in general, though? "Dinner" or something else?  What about the meal you have in the evening or nighttime - do you call that "supper"?  Or "tea"?

Mrs. C BBQed two pork butts on the Big Green Egg, and made mustardy coleslaw to go with. My only contribution, besides taking a picture, was doctoring up some BBQ sauce with mustard, vinegar, sugar, and Tapatio salsa.

 

Elder son is home from college, so between him and younger son the leftovers from two pork butts filled two small Ziploc bags.  :rolleyes:

My mom used lunch and dinner interchangeably and supper for the later meal. Right or wrong,  I tend to use dinner and supper interchangeably.
