Dinner 2018

Recommended Posts

Caesar salad and chorizo stuffed clams that were given a heavy hand of fresh oregano and rosemary. I liked the combination. My croutons for the salad had plenty of garlic, of course, and fresh thyme, paprika and a little salt.

A while back we got into a discussion about Rice-A-Roni and I said that I had never had the Spanish rice version.  A few days later I got a package in the mail--Spanish Rice-A-Roni from @suzilightning .  Made my day :) .  I've saved it until our tomatoes from the garden started coming in (it tells you to add a can of tomatoes to the mix).  We really liked it!

Another hot weather dish. It's now just after 11 pm. 33ºC/91.4ºF. Not sure what it was when I cooked. Certainly more.

 

Clams with black fermented beans, garlic, ginger, white chillies, coriander leaf, scallions and Shaoxing wine. I usually serve myself this with linguine or similar, but tonight decided on a whim to try orzo. It worked very well. You can't see in my pictures but all the spicy, salty clam juices made their way to the bottom and soaked into the orzo. Happy mouth.

Spanish Rice-A-Roni is the one that I put a lb. of ground beef in to make it a main course.  (As you can see, I've deleted the horrible pepper pictures 😉)

Well, I don't discriminate.  I detest all peppers.  Though, for some reason, I like pepper jelly and if I roast jalapenos I find it tames the heat and I quite like the flavor in some dishes.

I typically dislike peppers too - not so much because of flavor, but they tend to give me heartburn for some reason..  But, oddly enough, I love chili peppers!  But, they're not the same animal...

Definitely a member of the GBP club. I love all peppers, red, green, yellow, orange, or purple. Sweet, hot, mild, pickled, grilled, or fried. I would sorely miss peppers if they were to suddenly disappear from the world.

Nope, but that is on my list of things to work on. Believe it or not, these are a Safeway house brand. They're pretty good. I toasted them on grill just before serving.

Green bell peppers give me horrible indigestion.  All other kinds of peppers are fine, and I enjoy them very much, but GBP are the enemy.

 

Last night, burgers and hot dogs.  Simple food as we are on vacation and the kitchen amenities are quite lacking.  Typical for a rental house.  Burger and dog platter

The first picture captioned by the first quote above had me thinking that while everything looks tasty, those burgers seemed a tad anemic looking. But I didn't want to be rude and mention it. Then you posted another picture captioned by the second quote above and all became clear... so it felt alright to mention my initial thought since it was simply a case of mistaken identity. :D

 And my first  thought was, “My heavens, she can even make burgers and hotdogs look good”, and they’re not my favourite food. xD

Those fries looks amazing. Well all of it does, but those fries hit my carb buttons hard.

Thank you, but I can't take credit for them.  They were frozen fries, Alexia brand.  They do bake up nice and crispy.

How did you do them in the air fryer.  I love sweet potato fries but find them soggy.
