Dinner 2017 (Part 6)

Recommended Posts

Deep into Christmas decorating and cleaning around here.  Our hunter gets here a few days after Thanksgiving.  For once, I'm cautiously feeling a bit ahead of the game......

 

But, that won't last. xD

 

Anyway, it's been either quick meals or meals I can do SV.

 

Hot wings, salad and fries

SV pork tenderloin that turned out really good.

Yeah. Winged it. I've been flapping for years!

 

From the look of the meals you post, I'd say you flap rather well!

Sea Scallops with smashed red potatoes and MB's country style bread.  Hagafen's Dry White Riesling - 0% RS went along nicely.

 

 

I was expecting to see Israel as the source of your Hagafen Riesling.

 

Though it was drank on the appropriate day....Shomer Shabbis, as the Big Lebow's would say (perhaps with an additional expletive... ;) )

Today's dinner - the way of "utilization" of the meat from the broth - noodles with meat from the broth, cooked carrot, onion, garlic, thyme, rosemary, fresh parsley, salt and pepper - my daughter hates it, I love it while it is my childhood'd recollection

Thought so. It looks very good. And I think that loin rather than tenderloin does so much better sous vide. I always find loin cooked any other way to be dry and dull. I am not nearly so enthusiastic about pork tenderloin cooked sous vide. But others do enjoy it.

Tonight a turkey sandwich with cranberry honey mustard while finishing a beef stew for tomorrow IF himself makes it home.

 

It's cool, wet and raining so it felt like the right time to make a beef stew.

I hear ya, but I had to be ahead of the decorating game this year due to the hunter coming in.  If I waited until after he left, I'd be too far behind.

@Anna N And now I ask myself have I been wasting all those years eating pasta with a fork? (albeit usually a tiny dessert fork, because that was my utensil of choice for anything not eaten with sticks)

 

For dinner I actually haven't had much use for utensils. We had lachouch flatbread and spreads.

Why we love the Instant Pot, part 5,924.

 

We decide at 4 p.m. we want hot roast beef sandwiches for dinner. We grab two packages of frozen stew beef from the freezer; toss them in the IP frozen with some wine, some onion, some beef broth and some herbs. We saute some mushrooms (thanks, whoever posted the tip on dry-frying first, then adding the butter and wine; that worked nicely!), and we caramelize some onions. We thaw out burger buns and grab the sliced Swiss.

 

Assemble, toast in the CSO, add pickles and go!

It's actually a Napa Valley winery that produces excellent Rieslings.  Found it totally by accident on a trip out to Napa a few years ago.   I'm in their Residual Sugar wine club, goes nicely all the cab and chard I get from two other wineries.

 

So total accident about the day :)

I haven't made pizza in a while.  Made a batch of dough yesterday and left it in the fridge until tonight.

Finally back home!  Wood-roasted chicken (El Pollo Loco style) with mashed cauliflower with chives and salad.

'Twas midnight and after hours of shopping and cooking the duck was still in its plastic bag.  I had no more energy and appetite than for an avocado* and two tomatoes, plus some stale bread I had intended to throw out.

 

*a remarkably perfect avocado, as it turns out.

Duvel,  the pizza is topped with little cubes of potatoes.  I fried them last night, but the potatoes can also be roasted in the oven.    When they come of out the fryer, I season them with fresh garlic, salt, pepper, oregano and the juice of  a lemon.

   Tomato sauce, topped with either fresh mozzarella or feta and more oregano.  This is my son's favourite pizza.
