I'm embarrassed to post this right after @dcarch's stunning photos :$ but here goes..... Sweet & Sour Tofu with Corn from Melissa Clark's Dinner.

My jalapeños lost the capsaicin lottery so a couple of spoons of sambal oelek helped me out.

I thought the combination of corn and tofu was curious and I'm still not sold on it.

Yesterday afternoon, I bought  a bunch of large, live shrimp.

 

Last night, I stir fried them with garlic, ginger, white chilli, Shaoxing wine and Dragon Well Tea (龙井茶  lóng jǐng chá) and served as the main component of dinner.

Fuchsia Dunlop has a more refined recipe for Dragon Well tea with shrimp in Land of Fish and Rice, but she uses shelled shrimp and little flavouring - certainly no chilli. Fine though her dish is, I was trying to recreate a dish from Hunan which I have eaten in restaurants many times. The Hunan dish uses freshwater shrimp (Hunan is landlocked) but I used sea shrimp from the Gulf of Tonkiin near the China-Vietnam border.

 

Messy finger food. Fun!

I have not eaten it that way—only raw.

It's something I must try.

Duck breast, rapini and potatoes. The duck breast and the potatoes were sous vided  before being seared.

Dinner is Papa Murphy's half Hawaiian, half pepperoni pizza....simple because I'm minding my older poodle who had ACL surgery on Wednesday and spent two nights in hospital.  She's having a tough time so I have to keep watch to be able to help her with her food and water and trips outside for potty breaks.  She's on antibiotics, rimadyl, and tramadol.  

Still, she's having a hard time putting pressure on the leg and, therefore, needs help.  I moved her food and water next to her bed  which helps but she also needs assistance going outside.  

No time to futz around the kitchen to make  a dinner, just enough time to make her and her sister,'s meals.

I've been studying my way through Bugialli's Sardinian recipes even before I recently learned of my Sardinian heritage*.  This dish was a welcome repeat:  Melanzane in Forno.  No picture as it's been a hard day, what with the butter bomb last night and all.

 

Very good and very simple recipe:  eggplant, parsley, garlic, sundried tomato, olive oil.  At the table I assayed to add a little salt.  I added the salt shaker, lid, contents, and all.  This provided an unexpected savoryness unanticipated by the recipe.
