Husband coming home last Tuesday with BIL and SIL in tow for the Black Sabbath concert.  Thinly sliced chicken breast alla pizziola, spinach and ground bison meatballs(gluten and lactose free), salad, both bucatini and a rice linguine.  Ham and cheese and turkey sandwiches for after the concert on the drive home.

Went to heat up some of the meatballs for John yesterday for dinner but SURPRISE!!!! None to be found anywhere.  John then informed me that when they got back from the concert BIL AKA "The Cookie Monster" turned into an eating machine.  Seems he went through about a dozen and a half of the meatballs and wiped out 2 half containers of ice cream.

More bison thawing...now just need to get more spinach.

Nothing is better than frying in lard.

Nothing.  Do not quote me on this.

Tonight.

 

First made a sort of a salad. Cherry tomatoes, yellow bell pepper, scallions, cape gooseberries and mint. Lemon and olive oil dressing was added later.

Pan fried mackerel fillet. Served with couscous.

I'm quite disappointed with the meal. The mackerel was not as fresh as it could have been. When I filleted it, I immediately noticed the flesh was a bit mushy. I bought it in a fish place I hadn't tried before and it looked OK at the time. Won't be going back there.

Also, wish I had some real English gooseberries. I love them, especially with mackerel, but haven't had any for about 30 years.

Looks more like a NY strip  ; - )

 

 

 

Several years ago I was with some friends in Seattle. One of them ordered a NY strip steak. It was much bigger than any KC strip I'd ever seen.  

For all I know, this one might have been a Dodge City strip but it was definitely eaten in Kansas City. :)

A Porterhouse is a large T-bone. It is cut from the same part of the beef but higher up on the larger side.  If you cut the two sides off the bone, it is still a strip and tenderloin whether it is from a T-bone or Porterhouse end. :)

A couple of dinners from the past week.

 

Salad of cherry plum tomatoes, scallions, sirene cheese, hot green chili, olive oil, zaatar. Dollops of labaneh cheese on the side, with more zaatar. Eaten with soft warm pita breads to reap pieces from, make mini wraps and soak up juices.

Purple cabbage, sauteed with onion, tart apples, caraway and parsley.

What I think of as Kitchen Sink Salmon cakes - because they seem to have everything else in them - red and green peppers, red onion, scallions, jalapeno, bread crumbs, mayo, mustard, egg, basil - the list is very long. They are very good but I rarely make them except when there is local sweet corn because the accompaniment is a fresh corn relish - also with lots of ingredients - corn kernels, chopped onion and garlic briefly simmered in a vinegar and sugar mixture then cooled and mixed with  chopped reed onion, green and red pepper, scallions and basil. This is from a torn out page from a 2002 Food and Wine (i think - the page doesn't name the magazine but i believe that is what I was getting then. Could be Bon Appetite.) Served with boiled small potatoes with parsley and butter and a salad.

@mgaretz  

 

very very nice.    do you feel @ 6 H the TriTip was  tender to your liking ?

 

TT are hard to find in my area  ( BOS ) and having grown up in CA  I do understand their claim to fame.

 

for me  I can get nice  carefully trimmed whole  Sirloin "Tips" what re-Tips.

 

in your area  have you ever seen a Blade Roast ?  perf.  in sale ?

 

in spite of the central tendon on the blade roast. separating the two muscles , its

 

exceptionally flavorful   

 

if you ever see it    consider giving it a try.
