Dinner 2018

Recommended Posts

I am on a mission to clear out the freezer in advance of Thanksgiving, so I have been pulling leftovers out and also using all of the odds&ends I had saved (for future lunches) to supplement. Friday was chicken chili with rice/beans. Saturday was riced cauliflower “fried rice” with some leftover quinoa mixed in, leftover grilled chicken diced up, the remnants of a bag of frozen edamame, and a few fresh carrots sliced into the mix for some color. Served with a couple squirts of sriracha.

Dinner tonight was at the library.  Our annual food and wine fundraising event.  The highlight of my social season.  I did not go hungry.  Made it home with five large bags of food, including six duck breasts.  Plus four and a half bottles of wine and a bottle of milk.  Sad to see hotel pan after hotel pan of spice rubbed salmon being dumped.

 

During setup I expressed interest in the caterer's induction hotplate.  She said it was brand new, just took it from the box.  She asked if I knew why it was beeping?  I thought probably because there was no pot on it.  She said she took the pot off because of the beeping.  I looked at the pot and noted it appeared to be aluminum.

Tonight we had shrimp cocktail with "Love salads" (My own version of a ,sadly, extinct local favorite). Powerful garlic bread is a must with this dish!

To bad you couldn't convince her it was no good so you could take it home too!

@HungryChris How's that differ from a chef's salad?

I think of a chef salad as one containing a wide range of items. The love salad was one of the favorite menu items of a  local restaurant, now closed, called Hughies.

Leftover @rancho_gordo yellow eye beans led to this...

Penne e fagioli. Pasta e fagioli can be much more soupy; I like it this way.  Watch out, though - hot liquid will sometimes come squirting out of one of those quills.

Ronnie shot some nice pintail ducks so I roasted them in the CSO.  Had that along with some rice pilaf.  Ignore the awful green stuff that was supposed to be asparagus.  I think the grocery store actually sold us small trees.

So are pintails incredibly small ducks or do you have some giant CSO that I've never seen?  Because I'm not sure that I could fit 2 Cornish hens in mine, much less THREE ducks!!!

Yes, that certainly looks amazing.  And I don't even like meatloaf 🙃

When you harvest your own clams, one of the things you have to deal with is using them up while they are still fresh and, God forbid, not wasting a single one. In that light, it was clams again last night. Deb and I mowed through another dozen or so, with linguini.

 I did not hear a single complaint.
