Dinner 2018

Recommended Posts

I was making a sweet pepper and leftover meatloaf pizza for dinner last night, but as soon as Deb saw the pizza peel on the table, I knew there was a problem. Apparently, I had forgotten that a happy customer had bought pizza for the entire truck shop for lunch yesterday. My pizza quickly went into the freezer for a later date and meatloaf sandwiches took its place.

After a full day of housecleaning, laundry and treat-basket-packing, my eldest and I decided to treat ourselves to a manicure and pedicure. And when we got through, it was late enough for an early dinner. Beef ravioli in a combo of cheese and marinara sauces, preceded by a salad and some quite good bread. As it's a restaurant without a liquor-by-the-drink license, there was, sadly, no wine. Early to bed tonight, and back up and at 'em tomorrow to finish cleaning and then get Christmas dinner cooked for Sunday.

What is the first thing you do when you are back to Old Blighty?

 

A full English breakfast of course..........and I was banned of having one by the powers that be.

 

A compromise was found and I got my treat available only for Xmas.

 

A Cranberry Pork Pie (440gms)

British outdoor pork in hot water crust pastry case topped with Cranberries in a Cranberry Jelly.

I don't seem to be planning evening meals very well--that happens when I feel stressed about the holidays lol.  Anyway, I discovered we were completely out of shrimp and that won't do.  I ordered from Pike's Place.  Got some lovely salmon

So we had that (oh the skin was soooo good....nice and crispy) with pasta and crusty bread

Last night for the beginning of winter we had oysters and a seafood stew of sorts.

Okonomiyaki. 

Green bean, mushroom, cucumber and wakame salad, with toasted sesame and garlic-ginger-soy sauce dressing.

It's not as pretty as @Anna N's :) 

I didn't feel like filling a piping bug with the mayo, so I just mixed it with the sauce. The seaweed and scallion sprinkle could also be improved.

But that said, it was utterly delicious.

Taste matters most. Trust me I do not fill a piping bag with anything. I use the bottle that the mayo comes in!  Your okonomiyaki looks delicious.

Thanks! (and just to clarify, I know enough to assume that you used a squeeze bottle, but for that I'd have had to buy one :P ).

Dinner tonight was courtesy of my cousin and his wife who sent us lobster tails:

They were really good.  I was a little surprised at how sweet and tender they were.  Served with salad and long grain and wild rice:

@Kim Shook  I am a lobster fiend. Funny I always see them done the other way up with the back split but taste is the defining factor :)  I do them usually with soft side scissored open, flavored fat drizled on and broiled facing that way. Now I want lobster for Christmas!  When my friend freaks out after buying tails from Costco for New Years I send her this link  https://www.mainelobsternow.com/cooking/how-to-cook-lobster-tails

I had a small reprieve from cooking last night. Deb agreed to pick up Chinese takeout on her way home from returning grandson. This place, nearby,  has recently changed hands and seems to have greatly improved as a result. Deb had beef teriyaki, chicken fingers and fried rice. I was happy with hot and sour soup which I spiked with a dash of crushed red pepper and a bit of vinegar.

Shishito peppers with beef over rice.  Spicy bean sprout salad and long cooked sweet peppers with onions.

I'd been wanting to make this type of dish for a while...

 

45711674474_3d6804da33_z.jpg

 

"Soupy" rice.  Started by browning andouille, then added onions, carrots, celery. Saffron, tomatoes, stock, bay leaves. Bomba rice. Zucchini added towards the end, so it maintained a little texture.

 

The whole thing took about 45 minutes, start to finish, after we'd been out for a few glasses of wine and no food The homemade chicken stock elevates a dish like this to a whole different level, in my opinion.

Sure.  It's one cup cornstarch, 3/4 cup flour, 1/4 cup EverCrisp breader and batter boost from modernist pantry (I think I read about this ingredient on here somewhere), 1 egg, 1 tsp. salt, and 12 ounces lager.  I usually stick the batter in the fridge for an hour or so before using.  It's very thin--thinner than pancake batter, and cooks up very light and crispy.

 

Thanks @liamsaunt  Not sure if I will be able to find EverCrisp breader here.  But I will look for it.

Steaks, potato soufflé, blue cheese sauce while continuing our visit with my MIL.  By the grace of food Gods my steak was (almost) not over cooked!
