 Spinach steamed and then seasoned with a little toasted sesame oil before being topped with a fried duck egg.

After digging around in the freezer I found some salmon.  A very welcome change from the usual.  I sv'd it and made a mustard cream sauce to go with.

Dammit.  Yes.  It's like my need for StoveTop Stuffing.  And probably the closest I'll ever get to San Francisco.

:) No judgement. I've been known to eat a Totino's frozen pizza.

@ Shelby

https://www.pepperidgefarm.com/?s=cornbread+stuffing

 

with very little work :

 

cornbread S

 

sausage  , toasted pecans ,( or walnuts ),  apples , dried cranberries ( TJ's ) , Chicken or Turkey broth for the stock ( Minors soup Base + water + butter )

 

would put ST-Sutt  to shame.

 

just saying.

 

the other Pepp. stufings work well to , if you have noir Matured Enough to appreciate CornBread

 

the other packs on the above are still nice to try.

 

and they go on sale !

It's a day of learning.  First Soupy on the Breakfast thread and now San Francisco Treat:

 

 I don’t think I’ve ever had it. Then there seem to be a lot of things I haven’t had. I guess it has something to do with being born in Britain and just not catching up. :D

Don't feel bad @Anna N, I've never had Rice-A-Roni either... but I remember seeing the advertisements for it about 30 years ago... they had a very catchy jingle...

Yes the advert for Rice A Roni was someone hanging off a cable car on a hill in SF singing the jingle. We had it on occasion. It got my mom into the mode of pilaf using Uncle Ben's converted rice which yields a more al dente grain. Lightly sauteed first in butter or margarine and then water and flavoring was added. Pretty foolproof.

Nah,  I don't feel judged....just thought I could sneak the rice past you guys.  You're too on the ball. xD

 

And, also, I've had the damn jingle from the commercial stuck in my head all day.

Dinner was Huevos rancheros

Lord have mercy, but that looks good.

Salisbury steak is a passion of mine and a seemingly never ending quest to get to the college cafeteria dinner level. Success in this quest has eluded me for years, yet, every so often, I launch a renewed effort. Last night was such an endeavor. This one, though somewhat admirable, has  yet to arrive at the promised land. It is an effort that, unlike the mystery meat croquet, will continue, until I get it right. The secret seems to lie in just the right combination of French onion soup, Worcestershire sauce and powdered mustard.

My original plan was to cook all four and serve them in a dish at the table, hence the pot holder there. The size of them, however, thwarted me into cooking just two, but the pot holder remains in the picture just to add to my pain.

Lawry's Seasoned Salt. It'll make the difference.

Well, you can always replace it with "Oh, I wish I were an Oscar Mayer Weiner...."

 

When I was a small child, there was a TV commercial for a Nashville, TN, area chain of dry cleaners, the Happy Daze cleaners. I will never forget that jingle; it is engrained on my auditory nerve.

 

"At HAP-py Daze, we CLEAN your clothes

The SOFT touch way with SAN-itone.

Make THIS your happy, HAP-py day,

Just CALL us on the SAN-iphone."

 

Lord. More than 50 years ago and I can still hear the obnoxious thing.

LOL,  I'd bet money that I"m the only person here that gets this jingle stuck in their head.

"Sam Parraconi  pack his oranges in a bag"    It goes on for several more verses but that is

the jest of it.  As a newly minted Girl Scout, I went with my troop to a radio show and that

was one of the commercials.  

The other one wasn't food related but just as strange. "Bandini is the word for steer manure"  I

think it was one of the first companies to bag it up and sell it.  Citified shit so to speak.

I was a big fan of Rice a Roni for years.  And now I want some!

No, your level of cooking is way above mine!  I'm still wallowing around in the land of the occasional foil envelope for  a sauce mix.

The day I post a photo of a meal, you will know I have arrived as a rightful egullet member.  Right now I'm still a groupie.

 Don’t overestimate my skills or underestimate yours! You are as rightful as anyone else.  You will lose that right when you die of starvation in the midst of plenty and not until!   We all manage to feed ourselves and sometimes others and that gives us all the right to membership. xD

 

 Now I will surely buy some and try it.

Yesterday's dinner - baked mac and cheese, made with sharp cheddar, smoked gouda and some parm.

Topped with buttered corn flakes (the corny step-brother of breadcrumbs).

I love corn flakes on top of any kind of creamy dish.

I don't think you would hate it.  It's easy to make.  It's one of my comfort foods.  You might find it a bit salty....we like it, but we are salt junkies.

Your meals always always speak to me.   I wish I could find bread rolls like this somewhere---or make them.

I want this right now.

 

 

I decided to try making ravioli using wonton wrappers.  I think @Ann_T did this a while back.  I am thrilled to have tried this and to learn that they are awesome!  Just like pasta!  I was amazed.  

 

I used these that I got at the Asian market

IMG_4418.jpg.123c4e59c15983e0bf1da178af727ea6.jpg

 

I made two different kinds

 

Venison--cooked with onion, garlic, basil etc. mixed with an egg, cottage cheese and parm. cheese
