Dinner! 2014 (Part 2)

588 posts in this topic

... This time  I sweated down some diced onion and sweet red peppers  , juice of half a lemon in the pan then left to reduce down. I put this aside to cool .  In a bowl I had minced garlic, lemon zest, dried  greek oregano, the onion/pepper mixture , a good pinch of a spice blend I made with coriander seed, red chile flake, white pepper, and marjoram, S& P and the lamb.. mixed til just combined and made the patties. ( actually I fried off a small bit first to check seasoning and needed a bit more s &p)  homemade tzatziki and fine slice onion on top. 

 

Sounds dang good.


QUIET!  People are trying to pontificate.

When I was in the Asian market getting a beef shank and bones for Seolleongtang, I also picked up a stewing chicken for stock. It still had it's head and feet attached.  It was a skinny and tough old bird but when simmered for 3 hours, very tasty. 

 

Cassie said she had never heard of drop dumplings before I made them with chicken.  She only knew about the noodle-like kind and she liked that kind.  She left for work yesterday around 8 so I thought she'd be home for dinner. It turns out she worked a 15 hour day and I was in bed before she got home. I don't know if she liked the noodle dumplings or not but Charlie said they were good. They were made with baking soda/powder and buttermilk.  We had it with corn muffins.

 

I still have a couple quarts of stock which is now in the freezer.

Many thanks to all the folks who sent kind words and compliments my way.  Much appreciated.

 

 

A simple dinner - chicken soup w/ fresh orecchiette.  Soup made w/ a stewing chicken, carrots, leafy celery (see below), ginger slices, salt....

Tonight's salad and pizza, the only frozen pizza I can stand - Newman's Own Thin and Crispy Four Cheese Pizza - it's excellent.

Was an experiment tonight -- my partner proclaimed it delicious which is all that really matters in the end.

I do have more elaborate or more involved dinners but it is more often the case that they are simple ones or meals made from leftovers - unlike most of you here where dinner appears to be almost always the most substantial meal of the day frequently involving lots of fancy footwork/handwork and the greatest investment of time and energy and resources and ingredients. 

 

Here's a meal I had late last night, which was definitely a homestyle/really simple thrown-together meal, something that was tasty but allowed me to just barely stir from my sleepiness/general-blahness.

 

White rice (this took the usual ~ 1/2 hr prep & cooking time, stove-top) liberally sprinkled w/ wasabi fumi furikake; in-situ scrambled "marbled" eggs (three) (very hot pan, hot oil, maybe 1-2 minutes tops cooking time, full heat, eggs "release" fairly quickly; still runny in the centers, just the way I like them); stir-fried Taiwan bok choy (screamingly hot pan, almost smoking oil, Himalayan salt; less than 2 minutes cooking time, covered part of the time; some of the pieces get slightly browned). 

 

:-)
