Dinner 2016 (Part 9)

Cleaning out the fridge day, leek sautéed in butter with salt, pepper, and a tiny dash of soy sauce, leftover chicken tenders sliced and tossed in with the leeks to warm, some rice nabbed from the batch of rice I made in the rice cooker to use for the dog's food. Not the most visually appealing but surprisingly tasty. I was expecting it to be "well, I can choke this down" and it was actually "would make again if I have leftovers to use up." Far better than trying to reheat chicken tenders as chicken tenders, since I have never figured out how to reheat them so they crisp up without horrifically over cooking chicken, which is often overlooked to start with if they are purchased tenders from a restaurant or fast food. Maybe next time I'll try a sort of chicken tender fried rice...

 

Not pictured is the dog's food, which got more time and attention and was ground turkey browned and mixed with a couple cubes of homemade chicken stock, salt, pepper, a dash of soy sauce and a tiny sprinkle of onion powder for flavor, then combined with equal amounts of rice. (She won't eat it if it isn't nicely seasoned, this is what happens when you raise a dog getting bits of tasty people food all the time. She expects FLAVOR.) Foxy is going to be 14 on Halloween and has cancer, so if homemade food keeps her stomach happy with the chemo, she gets homemade food. (She's doing quite well, I should add. The only issue is the chemo upsets her stomach much as it does with people. Otherwise she bops around like any other older dog, not as bouncy as a puppy but quite happy with life.)

Sartoric's Indonesian Roast Pork Belly has been on my mind since he posted...

I didn't have pork belly in the freezer, just a slab of pork loin?

I adapted a Malaysian Fried Chicken marinade and rubbed it on the pork, left it for 4 hours, then roasted at 400F for 1.1/2 hours. The fat on top had charred bits and translucent...The flavour was great. That'll have to do until I gets me some pork belly!

I also made cheese chips, a snack recommended on a low-carb group I belong to. They are fabulous and easy to do in the microwave.

Char Broil Big Easy! That was big a few years ago.

Will be doing a belated Thanksgiving turkey in a couple of weeks when the kids can all come home!

Will probably make naan again...slippery slope on the low-carb way of eating.xD

I've been doing a much better job of labeling my bags with date, cooking time, and temperature...it never occurred to me to note the contents.

 

Ah, @JoNorvelleWalker  So many times you are responsible for my smile of the day.
