Dinner 2019

Recommended Posts

Well dinner last night didn't happen as I planned. My sister-in-law came down for a brief overnight visit.  John was having some digestive problems as, it turns out, was Julie.

I had roasted a turkey breast that came out of the freezer, made their mom's sausage dressing, was trying out a not too sweet roasted sweet potato casserole(keeper) and green beans.

Julie had crackers and some cheddar and blue cheese.

John had an open face turkey breast and gravy sandwich on his bread with some plain roasted sweet potato.

Well, leftovers.....

I can't find a link to a free recipe.

It was from Dora Charles' cookbook though I subbed out toast dope for the spices and sugar in the sweet potatoes.

After being away most of the day on Friday at a not so fun place, I needed something easy for dinner.  Thank goodness I made pizza dough before we left.  Hit the spot.  Pepperoni.  Those are jalapeño peppers, not the dreaded bells @rotuts;)

Yesterday I velveted some chicken and made a mushroom oyster sauce to go with.  Also some sweet and sour tofu and beans.  Oh and an egg roll.

Salad inspired by the Burmese Lahpet thoke (fermented tea leaf salad). Since I can't really get my hand on fermented tea leaves, I used Thai shrimp paste, which I find to lant many of the same notes. Shredded cabbage, scallions, tomatoes, chili, roasted chickpeas, fried garlic, peanuts, sunflower seeds, lots of lime juice and a few spices.

 

Tofu patties with wheat, coconut and ginger - cooked in semi-dry yellow Thai-style curry, with broccoli, tomatoes, chili, coconut cream, lime zest and juice, coriander seeds. Served with rice and baked sweet potato.

Big lunch. Another hot pot. No pictures. The usual.

 

So, smallish dinner.

 

After a slight mishap, made some quail scotch eggs. With a simple salad. Two pictured, but ate five. Three in fridge for breakfast.

@liuzhou, how long do you boil your quail eggs to make your Scotch eggs? I love the look of those two halves at the top right....

Thanks to @shain's wonderful saga of his trip to Georgia, I tried my hand with bialys. These were in furtherance of my attempt at sourdough and involved two days at room temperature (with periodic feedings of white whole wheat flour), kneading the dough in the bread machine, and then overnight in the fridge. As a San Francisco ex-pat, I have to say my sourdough's not even close! The onions were done in slow cooker for 3 days at 165F with nothing but a cube of butter.

I drop them into already boiling water and give them two minutes, then into ice water. Yes, the two at the bottom left came out slightly harder than the rest. No idea why.

Tonight's dinner- wings slow-cooked in a mix of hot pepper jam, holiday jam, home-made stock, pomegranate juice, and Moxie, then crisped in the oven. Accompanied by bread and corn-and-edamame succotash. I like to call this "What I had in the fridge and freezer"

Poached chicken with oyster sauce dip, ginger and oil dip.

Stir-fried asparagus and red onion, and simplified Yang Chow "fried rice" - Zeroodle shirataki rice.

@TdeV I'm flattered by having inspired you. But actually bialys are a Polish dish, my mother used to make them occasionally when I was younger.

The slow cooked onion sounds delicious, must have smelled amazing. Sourdough is surely to work well in it. I never tried to start one, though.

@chefmd  Posole  in a Guajillo Chile base was the thing this week, similar to yours.   In addition to cabbage and radish ( here ), I will use onion and epazote or Mexican oregano..also hot sauce of choice

 

I'm currently fermenting some cabbage in gochujang  and stuff to use, next time..raw is just to hard

 

New version

Pork Carnitas Street Tacos

 

@robirdstx, your tacos look great! Original post here. Are those holders for the tacos? They look like a brilliant idea! Are the holders used for cooking the tacos, or just presenting them? Where does one get these holders?

@Shelby – you beat me to it.  After seeing gfweb’s pork last week, I am determined to make it soon!  Yours looks wonderful.

 

 

While I was in Charleston SC last week, I made it to Callie’s Hot Little Biscuit shop and bought two frozen varieties.  Dinner tonight was breakfast for dinner featuring the biscuits:

DSCN9206.JPG.3da6581f35cf0b342285155900f7d4cd.JPG

On the left is the cinnamon biscuit with cinnamon butter the other two are Cheddar biscuits with country ham.  These biscuits are truly amazing – there is no where here in Richmond that serves a biscuit like them.  Luckily, The Fresh Market here carries them.  We also had scrambled eggs and sausage:

Down at the country place, I made chickpea flour pancakes. Served simply with a runny dal and pickle.
