Dinner 2018 (Part 1)

Recommended Posts

Tonight I made crab cakes with leaf salad and beet salad.  Used the dregs of a cut avocado to build the salad dressing

Slow cooker Thai Beef Curry with roasted sweet potato wedges.  I wasn't sure what to do with the sweet potatoes so I ended up rubbing them with some oil and shaking some Shichimi Togarashi on them.

Brown with Brown. Brown is good! I was going to make a salad to go with but my other half said Pork Chops and Roasted Potatoes were enough, soooo who am I to argue! ~ Pork Chops Sous Vide - one hour at 140F, then grill seared.

Got a new wok today so of course I had to try it out!  Char siu with young bok choy, snap peas, mushrooms and onion in a sweet sauce of hoisin, soy and cream sherry.

The food is spectacular...but I am lusting for that tablecloth. So very beautiful.

 

Thanks, @kayb and @dcarch! And the best thing is that the fibers of the tablecloth are somehow coated and you can just wipe over it with a wet cloth to remove stains ... It still feels like regular fabric.

Summer rolls (yeah, I didn't do a good job rolling)

 

You are meant to overstuff yourself; not the rolls! :D

“Peas Stroganoff”.  Adapted from a Jane  Grigson recipe.  Creamed peas with a sliced lamb chop.  The lamb was cooked sous vide.

with still some savoy cabbage in the fridge I kind of transformed a very traditional dish into something else. Pasta, savoy cabbage, lots of garlic and for the crunch some toasted hazelnuts.

Someone who used to be a member recommended this to me click.  I mention it only for those who would like to try laksa but don’t want to go to the trouble of making their own.  

 

I finally found this and bought one.  Haven't cooked it up yet, though.

Pan seared grass fed filet mignon from WF with roasted broccoli.  Filet is my husband's favorite cut and I indulge him once in a while.  Personally I prefer strip or ribeye.

"Chicken tortilla stackers"

 

We've been making variants on this for a long time - leftover shredded chicken layered with corn tortillas, red chile sauce and cheese and baked in a casserole dish.

Clean the fridge out salad tonight. 

I yelled out to himself 'Want meat in it?' Whilst dutifully slicing the last of the beautiful salami we had. 'Yeah chuck the rest of that Strasburg in' was my response from the shower O.o

Strasburg is a processed sausage shaped 'meat' made of pork, beef AND chicken bits that I cannot bring myself to eat. But it reminds some people of their childhood - hey I'll eat kidney pie out of a can so thats probably worse. 

 

I used a mustard dipping sauce I made for our corn beef attempt as dressing. Didn't know how to drizzle it all fancy for you guys so I used a 2ml syringe left over from administering lil man medication (clean of course). 

You know the sand worm poop trails left on the beach at low tide... yeah. 9_9
