Dinner 2018 (Part 1)

Recommended Posts

Chicken milanese with cherry tomato-mozzarella salad from this week's New York Times food section. Tasty!

Didn't feel at all like Chinese, tonight.

Pork medallions simply fried in OO with salt and lots of black pepper.  Potato, carrot, garlic mash (rough - sometimes I like lumps). Nuked asparagus (first dressed in OO and sea salt).

It was 105°F here yesterday, so no cooking dinner for me. I ordered out some fish and chips from a local bowling alley's coffee shop (they're known for their fish and chips). It also came with some nice cole slaw, a dinner roll (a sort of potato roll) and the tartar sauce was pickle-less but still quite tasty. 

I am sorry I have no pictures. I also didn't have any malt vinegar for the fish which dampened my enjoyment of eating this meal I didn't cook. :( xD

Pork soboro (protein condiment seems to be the most appropriate explanation) with zucchini and onions.

I found a Food Saver in the freezer marked Korean Pork. It was a batch I mixed up last year and froze some of it. I didn't remember if it was cooked or not so I put the thawed package in water with the Anova for about an hour then finished it in a skillet.   We had it with kimchi, rice and laver.

Pan fried chicken breast stuffed with spinach-shallot puree, over pasta and diced tomatoes.  Sprinkled with a little grated parmesan.

Severe storm warnings started in the afternoon. West of us, power was going off and hail the size of tennis balls were playing havoc. Storm chasers posting about development of tornadoes...
Had chicken in marinade and cooked up Filipino Chicken Adobo for supper right quick!  Cooked up some Coconut cardamom rice and enjoyed supper while the thunder roared and the rain poured. Luckily, the worst of the storm system by-passed our city.
Have never made Chicken Adobo nor eaten it,  so I'm not sure exactly what it's supposed to taste like. It was good...almost like Chinese soy sauce chicken with the added tang of the vinegar and a bit of afterburn from the black pepper and chili pepper flakes. Salad seemed unconventional but complemented the rest of the meal.

Glad you were spared a tornado.  I lived  through the Edmonton monster.  Very frightening.

Stop & Shop Natural casing, pork and beef franks with cheese and onion, sauerkraut and onion and ball park mustard, and salads. Deb adds ketchup to hers, but I can't bring myself to photograph it. It's just wrong!

Baked potato, chicken thighs, and fiddleheads.

 

Yes, fiddleheads.  Some say the fiddlehead sickens her devotees by bacterial contamination.  Others blame as an yet unidentified fiddlehead toxin.  If you never hear from me again you know what got me.

So I have not posted much lately. I just cannot find the inspiration to cook for one that other members possess. I am so jealous. 

I've had grilled cheese three nights in a row! 

Mainly to use up leftovers, the cheese my husband left behind before he went back to work, and the bread leftover from small dudes lunches. 

It's like I am 15 again. With a lot more wrinkles.

Jarlsberg, 3 year old cheddar and the most bland rubbish mozzarella you ever did taste.

Vegetarian take on dan dan noodles. Using finely chopped mushrooms and tofu. Spicy :)

I tried a recipe for slow cooker Mongolian Beef. It was OK.

Been wondering where you were!  Glad you're back :)

 

What are the turnips stuffed with?  I love mashed turnips--I should get more creative.

I've eaten a whole lot of fiddleheads foraged by my late wife and her sister over the last 20 years. We'd eat them often when in season plus there were always numerous bags of them in the freezer for later consumption... no damage to report so far. I didn't make it out to grab some this year so I suppose we can see if I'm in better health going forward and just didn't know they were damaging me all along. :D

Actually, depending on your species of fiddleheads, the toxin should be known. Most common is Ptaquiloside, which is not only shows acute toxicity but is also a strong carcinogen. During my academic years I tried to synthesize the aglycon via a new reaction sequence I was developing. Never worked out, but left me with a curiosity how great fiddleheads must actually taste so that I would overcome my prejudice to try them. Until today that curiosity remains ...

It's pretty rare for me to eat meat these days.  But when you are really hankering for a side of cow, ain't no cauliflower steak or grilled Portobello cap (but guys I swear they taste like the real thing!! Not.) Is gonna cut it.

 

Simple roasted veg, simple baked potato, seared strip w/ creamy mushroom sauce and a Central Coast Cab.

Done ;)

 

Part of a seafood banquet in Japan, me and my wife shared the last piece on the plate, after none of the colleagues showed any signs of impairment after consumption (other than alcohol related). Underwhelming ...
