@Anna N hoarding cheese is a virtue

Oh good.  I’m a bit short on the virtue side.

Waffles and bacon.  Was supposed to be more like breakfast.  But it was 6:30.  Whether another dinner happens is uncertain.  Bread is in progress, though with the temperatures my dough isn't doing much.  I just measured the dough temperature at 21 Celsius -- and that is only because the bowl is sitting on the stove with the oven running.  Yes, I did remember to add the yeast.

Decided I wanted Wiener Schnitzel made with pork tenderloin for dinner.

A work night, but dinner came together quickly.

Put the potatoes on to cook in the Cuisinart Steam oven on the Bake steam setting. And while the potatoes were baking, I pounded out the pork, breaded and fried in butter and olive oil.

Served with steamed green beans and butternut squash.

Lamb mini-meatball tagine pizza, and one with peppers, onions and bacon-end lardons.

OK, second dinner.  Baguette, Pink Lady apple, cheeses, miscellaneous wines to clear out the refrigerator.  Temperature dropping, winds increasing.  No better morning to pop a bottle of Whistlepig single barrel, barrel strength.

SV'd ribeye, tots and salad

I had some little pieces of pork belly frozen, so I thawed those out and did them in the Instant Pot for lo mein.  Eggrolls and sticky chicken thighs (couldn't find any wings in the freezer) to go with.

@Duvel Its 3/4 cup of brewed coffee,  a tsp or so of chili powder, a tsp of soy, salt, 1 Tbsp sugar (or maybe more) thickened with corn starch. Occasionally sauteed garlic or chipotle.

@gfweb, thanks ! 

 

I have never considered that combination. Recently I came across "red eye gravy" in some other context and found it strangely appealing, so I guess I have to give coffee-based meat sauces a try ...

@Duvel This is indeed a cousin of red-eye gravy. The Chili and coffee go together well. I've thought of adding bittersweet chocolate which ought to play nicely with chili and coffee. Gotta do that. Bacon lardons have been tested and approved with the sauce as well.

I should add that I brew it strong for this

 I have enjoyed a couple of dishes that involve coffee, chili and chocolate and found them very intriguing.

for dinner last night -

 

leftover oxtails - three pieces

two clementines

 

I would've eaten more but I fell asleep

B has just started his "diet of steam" so I will have to drastically reduce my cooking to accommodate his preferences as he attempts to lose 40+ lbs. Actually, what will happen is - I'll cook for myself and he'll limit his daily food intake to something south of 1,000 calories/day.

As for me, I really despise leftovers. I hadn't counted on eating the remaining oxtails by myself, and tossing them is wasteful. I'll take the rest and convert it to hash for Sunday morning breakfast.

tonight (Friday) - I'll finish the rest perhaps tonight but I doubt it. palate fatigue has set in at this point.
tomorrow is a full day of activities as we're headed to San Jose to watch the men's ice skating long program which will determine who gets to go to the Olympics in South Korea; Saturday dinner is TBD but it looks like it will be dinner out

any remaining oxtails will be for Sunday breakfast

 

to be continued...

It's the night before King's day ...

 

Tradionally (at least in the Catalan family of my wife) this means "pa amb tomaquet" (bread rubbed with tomato, olive oil and salt) and "embotits" (assorted cold cuts):

 

Aged Manchego.

"Butifarra negra" (blood sausage), "butifarra Blanca" (boiled sausage with tongue, skin, intestines), two types of "fuet" (a kind of salami).

"Truita" (potato omelette).

More "butifarra blanca" - quite peppery.

"Pa amb tomaquet".

"Bellota", sliced freshly from a ham.

"Bikinis" (grilled ham & cheese sandwiches) for the kids.

 

Of course, around 22.30h, one of the kings arrived to distribute presents for the kids. And although I have not been always good in 2017 (:$), I got a little something.

 

(after that I snug into the guest kitchen, where the bellota was hiding and thanks to my willing and very professional helper I got some extra treats ...)

The Instant Pot Smothered Pork Chops were great, but the star of the meal was the Roasted Potatoes and Green Beans!
