Dinner 2018 (Part 1)

Recommended Posts

My first go at homemade ramen (aside from the noodles). Shuyo Ramen from Japanese Soul Cooking. Amazing book.

Ssshhh! It's Friday, the men are asleep, fed on zoodles and turkey meat sauce. It's carb time xD

Now I personally call this cheese on toast although there is much debate. 

Staring Snowdonia cheese company's offerings 'Black Bomber' and 'Red Storm'. 

So, so good.

@Anna N, I beg to differ.  I think that your photos are great. I would eat everything in those photos.

 

Those who know me, know that I don't like leftovers, with a very few exceptions.

So, what I did today was very out of character.

I still had half of the Sirloin Cap roast left over from Wednesday. It was cooked rare and I had intended to slice it thin and make sandwiches this morning. One for Moe's breakfast and one for me to take for lunch.

But instead I decided to put it in the Breville Pressure Cooker and turn it into a pot roast. I just didn't want it to taste like "leftovers".

WOW!!! is all I can say. The flavour of this meat was wonderful and did not taste like leftovers at all. It was so tender, but still held together when sliced.

There was just enough meat for two nice size sandwiches.

Moe had his for breakfast and mine is going to work with me for lunch.

Wow indeed !

 

I personally consider a rare RBS  a metamorphosis  , not a leftover

 

however , you've done very well !

 

Im glad you PC'd the meat whole and then sliced

 

Im glad it worked out so well.

 

you beef must have had exceptional flavor from the Get-Go to do well in a PC

 

congratulations !

Sorry, I was changing out the photo, as my husband said the first one was too photoshopped, making the Ham look too pink! :B

I've eaten this before, but tonight was my first time to cook it. It tasted great, but I think I need to work on the presentation!

 

Where is my dinner?!?! Under this saltberg.

 

20180120_192708.thumb.jpg.99494f6db35e8f5dbdcf4c6f742c019e.jpg

 

Oh! An archaeologist has found it!

Salt baked sea bass. Served with couscous and tomatoes. There was also a side of snow peas which couldn't fit on the plate.

I'll be trying this again, but hopefully manage to present each fillet whole.

Ann's garlic honey chicken again.  I am running very low on veggies so I used some brussel sprouts and bamboo shoots an onions.  It worked.

Kibbeh Selek ~ semolina dough kibbeh with vegetarian filling of chopped chickpeas, mushrooms and lentils (the original is made of minced meat), flavored with bahart and browned onion.

Cooked in a beetroot (selek) soup, with plenty of celery, bay leaves, chickpeas. Flavored with allspice, chili and paprika. Served with couscous.

In a case of when the hell did I last go grocery shopping, we have part of a leftover black bean and chicken quesadilla topped with a ragout of chorizo, New Mexico green chile (from my now dead garden) 3 teeny green tomatoes (garden) onion, corn, and a teaspoon of tomato paste

Charlie seldom ever makes any suggestions for dinner so I was sure to make one when he asked. He said it's a Soul Food recipe called Smothered Chicken.  We had it with rice and he had already helped himself before I remembered to take a picture.

White clam pizza, inspired by our many trips to Frank Pepe's in New Haven and waiting in line for them to open. More than once, we made the hour long drive only to see the "No clam pies today" sign on the door. Not a good thing!

Roasted chicken and cauliflower.  The bird was small, a little less than three pounds, so cooking time was the same as the cauliflower.  Both pans were pre heated.  Salsa verde on the side.
