carrot rice sounds interesting....

don't hate me but everything got bolloxed up ....

ended up reheating some wheat pasta then adding butter and ketchup.....had a tomato and red onion salad with blue cheese and vinaigrette earlier.  Johnnybird's stomach was a bit uneasy so before he went off to the concert some boiled potatoes and leftover Cornish hen with gravy NO veg.   chicken breast sandwiches for after as he can't seem to go more than 30 minutes in the car without SOMETHING to eat.  Ask me to tell you about the supplies I need for a roadtrip.  Tomorrow will be different ......maybe.

still have a bit of steak to work with....

Nothing is better than frying in lard.

Nothing.  Do not quote me on this.

Carrot rice?  How is that made, please?

It's rice, carrot, salted butter and water in a eletric rice cooker.

I mix 1 cup of rice, half carrot, and a table spoon of butter, 2 cups of water, and the eletric rice cooker make all the job.

Korean BBQ country style pork ribs, bruschetta and butter and sugar corn. I love silver queen, but my timing has been off. I seem to get there just as the last of it is gone. Next time those ribs (many of their brethren are in the freezer) will go into the IP or SV before the grill. These were good, but could have been more tender.

Liuzhou, your shrimp are always so fresh looking.  Makes me hungry for them.

 

Chris, your ribs look great!  The IP sure is a quick way to get 'em more tender.  I'm glad you got to have some Silver Queen--you just can't beat it.  

 

Sandwich night with mac and cheese and broccoli salad.  And a not too bad, but still not great, non-garden tomato.

Well, they were alive about 5 minutes before I took the picture. I am blessed with luck in the seafood department. I know it.

Nice looking meal. I would like to know how you did the mussels.

Thanks! I bought a pound frozen cooked mussels in a half shell, defrosted, pulled it off the shell and cut in half, patted dry to get rid of excess liquid. Rinse the shells and set aside to drain and dry. In a bowl mix a cup of mayo, a tablespoon of sugar, half a tablespoon of Sriracha and two teaspoons Masago(salted capelin roe), adjust sugar and Sriracha to your preference. Toss the mussel halves in and coat well. Return mussels back to shells bake 350 for 20 min.

Damn, that sounds marvelous.

 

I had takeout chicken tikka masala. Satisfactory, if not exceptional. First night at home in a week, worked like a madwoman with my head in the computer screen all day. May potentially get to cook tomorrow.

It's been quite some time since I participated in this thread! Been travelling but finally happily back in my own kitchen!
Meals lately have been dictated by former customers at our restaurant, from which we retired in 2002!

 #31, Soo's Boneless Almond ChickeneGSoo's Almond Chicken0004.jpg


Next was #110 Soo's Crispy Ginger Beef

And # 101. Beef with Green Peppers & Black Bean Garlic Sauce

Dessert - not your typical Chinese dessert but a family favourite: banana cream pie!

I cheated on the crust as this was one made with Crisco vegetable shortening. I don't do well with vegetable shortening anymore, not since I started making my crust with lard and butter in the food processor. Our friends are Muslim, thus the Crisco crust.

Welcome back. I was just thinking yesterday, while looking through an older thread, "I wonder what happened to Dejah."

They look very inviting under those shrimp.

 

I have just bought a cheap zoodle maker because of you guys. And the enormous courgette in my fridge :D
