Dinner 2018 (Part 1)

Recommended Posts

I've come over all Sino-Hibernian tonight.

 

Sino - Chinese style liver and onions. Pork liver marinated in Shaoxing wine and its own blood and a bit of potato starch. Red onion and green chilli. Stir fried the onion till caramelised, then added the chillies. Then the liver to flash fry it. Finished with a drop of soy sauce and sesame oil.

Hibernian - Ulster style champ. Mashed potatoes, butter and scallions. No cheese!

I am not normally a big football game watcher, but tonight's game for the Patriots was a big one and I watched. Dinner suffered as a result, but there wasn't an unhappy diner at the table!

I don't think you meal looks like it suffered at all!  I'm hungry for a burger.

Tonight we tried something new again: Hot and Numbing Sichuan Chicken Salad (Bang Bang Ji Si) from serious eats: http://www.seriouseats.com/…/sichuan-chicken-salad-chinese-…

Chicken cooked sousvide at 150f and shreaded and mixed with a bunch of spices! Pretty interesting - basically an Asian chicken salad.20180121_190104.thumb.jpg.0a79de4998d5ab680af31ecf88872572.jpg

Bookmarking this recipe.  I want to try this in the summertime.  Looks very good!!!!

 

Gorgeous pizzas everyone.

Yes, I fall on the side that likes it when the top noodles get crunchy :)

 

 

And, I feel everyone's football pain.  As a die-hard Broncos fan.....well, I need not say more.  I will cheer for anyone that plays against New England.

Carbonnades a la flamande over Gouda grits. A favorite. And I had onions that needed using.

 

Am still cursing my liquor store for no longer carrying Green Flash Double Stout, my beer of choice for this dish. I made do with Guinness.

nice Lasagna !

 

what's cheese on the top ?

 

what cheese did you use in the Innards ?

 

if you use ricotta 

 

have you considered 

 

cottage cheese ?    of the fat content you might enjoy ?

 

said to be more flavorful

 

as I have TurkeyRagu down pat

 

Im going to have to revisit  lasagna

 

a fav or mine.

I used this fresh mozzarella  on top and layered throughout--it's about the only fresh I can find at the regular grocery store and it's good.  

 

Ronnie absolutely detests ricotta cheese.....and, growing up, my mom always used cottage cheese, so that's what I do.  A couple cups of cottage cheese mixed with a beaten egg and a good amount of grated parmesan cheese.

Been AWOL again. Cleaning the house from top to bottom as we had a little dinner party and jam session planned as a belated bday celebration for hubby's 75 last weekend.

The menu was based on some of the dishes we featured at our restaurant, from which we retired 15 years ago! I teased my friends on facebook by just giving the numbers of the dishes and they had to try to remember from when they used to frequent the restaurant.
#63, #13, #109, #110, #12a, and Coconut Shrimp, which wasn't part of our menu at the time: Deep-fried Wontons, Sweet and Sour Ribs, Ginger Beef, Chicken in BBQ Sauce Sizzling Hot Plate, and Cantonese Shrimp and Char Siu Chow Mein. Dessert was Mango Pudding!

Then we jammed late into the night!

I got a couple of the Christmas Omaha Steak pork chops out of the freezer and made them using Korean style ingredients and served it with some baby bok choy.  I thought I made some rice but when I opened the cooker, I realized I forgot to add water!  We didn't really miss it though. I also put out some kimchi but we didn't eat any of that either.

Last night I made tri-tip.  Been a while!  I cooked it SV for 8 hours at 128F then seared.  Before bagging I added salt, pepper and some dill seeds.  I also added 1 tsp of Sansaire Steak Aging sauce, which I haven't used in a while.  But my wife wanted thin sliced leftovers to take  to work in sandwiches for lunch, and that sauce adds that deli-carved roast beef taste.  Served with a baked sweet potato (red yam) and butter, and salad.  Cherry pie for dessert.

May I like it except for the cauliflower part?

 

Here I went back and forth between leftover Peruvian chicken and pizza.  Came down on the side of pizza.

 

 

Sure - other substitutes can be broccoli or zucchini.

Husband is sick.  So sick that he passed on his ticket to a suite for the Patriots game yesterday.  Doctor results are pending, but my bet, based on his persistent fever, is on the flu (despite getting the shot ugh).  So, since I was off today too for a well-person doctor's appointment (ironic), I roasted up a capon.  Soup forthcoming.  Tonight we ate some of it with mashed potatoes and green beans. Lots left for other meals.

That looks gooood.  I wasn't familiar with Raos until I read about it on this forum.  I tried the Arrabiatta and was hooked.  As it happened, the store where we bought it was running a promotion with the Arrabiatta at half price.  We are now fully stocked until possibly into 2019.

We're now doing MC meals on weeknights... 72 hour pork shoulder pulled to shreds and mixed with east Texas BBQ.  On MB Buns with White Cabbage and Apple slaw.

20180122_184023.thumb.jpg.fedbc833f330cb5ebacd9adc2297b8aa.jpg

 

The pork had a sell by date of Friday so the store discounted it 33%  So nice cheap meal.  We're trying different BBQ sauces each time, right now Memphis is my favorite.

I'm just getting over my flu.  Monday was day 14.  This stuff is no joke.  

 

Beautiful chicken!

 

Pork lo mein and sticky wings last night

Started out to make meat balls. Chopped/minced beef and pork (roughly 50:50 mix) with cumin and chilli flakes, then changed my mind and burgerized it instead.

 

With chips. Ate and made another. Enough left for a breakfast burger, too.

@Dejah – Happy Birthday to your husband.  What a gorgeous feast!

 

@liamsaunt – Hope your husband recovers quickly.  Love capons – I haven’t cooked one for years and need to!

 

We had company this weekend.  I only cooked one dinner – we went out the other nights.  Dinner was CI’s BBQ shrimp:

DSCN7913.JPG.594d6d616ff49d0807acfb281f859888.JPG

 

Bojangle’s Dirty Rice:

DSCN7915.JPG.27c144966b8aa4756688309b025fedec.JPG

No point in me making it, they do it better than I can.

 

Good, crusty bread for soaking up the buttery shrimp sauce:

DSCN7909.JPG.619cb00cbb54517c1526abcd9cbf9d62.JPG

 

And our favorite layered salad.  Layers in an ugly plastic bowl:

DSCN7910.JPG.229c0118d2937120590a6361fa682f17.JPG

Napa, cauliflower, mayo, minced onions, bacon, hard-boiled eggs, Cheddar and sugar.  Before tossing:

@Dejah I will be the first to admit, I'm surprised you ran a Chinese restaurant and even more surprised you're Asian!

 

The food looks absolutely amazing.

We love this recipe but don't make if very often. I have had the original recipe since before I had a computer and kept recipes in a loose leaf notebook but someone took the original out and this is a recreation.  We think it's pretty much like the original  which was called Honey Lacquered Game Hens.  We always have it with rice and I cooked the rest of the bok choy from yesterday.

Tonight I made a sea scallop roll.  Not unlike my last shrimp roll.  No photos but of the two the shrimp roll was my favorite.  But both where throughly  enjoyed.
