Dinner 2018

I'm still eating leftovers from Sunday. Ate the Italian beef sandwiches Sunday and Monday, went out for dinner on Tuesday with the kid at her request, and last night decided to repurpose the still somewhat hefty amount of remaining beef. So I cooked it in a frying pan to reduce the liquid and crisp the beef a bit, stirred in homemade bbq sauce and had bbq beef sandwiches. Of course, even that didn't manage to kill it all so bbq beef it is for tonight as well. If that doesn't wipe it out, it's going in the bin... not doing another night with it. I really need to start cooking smaller amounts of things.

Or grind it up and make a cottage pie that you can tuck in the freezer.

That sounds like a good idea. I may just do that with all of it. Not completely convinced I want to eat it again tonight.

It's kinda like wrestling a gorilla... you don't stop when you're tired, you stop when the gorilla is tired.

I was happily surprised at dinner tonight. I am suffering from allergies and a fever, so my son, the 'king of ketchup', offered to cook steaks for dinner.  WOW!  I ended up with a perfectly seasoned porterhouse, med-well.  Absolutely delicious!  Sorry - no pics.  I ate it too fast. 

 The child has a new job here at home now.:P

No pics but another round of grouper sandwiches with oven roasted butternut squash cubes which were like  candy.  Healthy candy but still candy.  Rivers Marie Pinot  to round it out

Tonight's dinner, elote brats and Texas Wiener brats on grilled King's Hawaiian rolls, with steamed asparagus with a sauce of sweet soy sauce and umeboshi vinegar on the side.

Just 2 things.

Wine is made "Méthode Traditionnelle". I'm not interested in sparkling wines with just added fizz.

Caviar fridges, under lock and key. Bought mine from here.

I've been struggling with the heat here. Cold strawberry with ice is extremely nice after walking round in this heat.

Like most eastern Europeans Moldovans are huge soup eaters. Fortunately I like soups and beetroots. Garlic rolls in the background. You will quickly notice sour cream is served with nearly everything.

Moldovan version of polenta. The dent is for pouring butter over.

Fried Speck, scrambled eggs, grated brined cheese, sour cream, dill-garlic in oil.

Steamed open the last of the most recent batch of clams today, to make chorizo stuffed clams. I was pleased to see that every last one of them opened nicely. I paired these with some garlic, chili & lime shrimp skewers, cooked in foil on the grill and little salads that included lettuce and radishes from the garden. I go out to the garden frequently to check on the progress, and offer words of encouragement, to my first zucchini and cucumbers of the season.
