Dinner 2019

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Yesterday's dinner was nothing much worth mentioning. I came from a box in the freezer. Dessert was improvised. It was not very pretty but worth trying again. It was a very ripe and juicy pear over melted cherry ice cream and topped with some sour cherry jam. Todays dinner was veal piccata with egg noodles and a salad.

Well, we fell upon dinner and all that I have left is a photo of the leftovers. Chicken meatballs (finely chopped arugula is the green) with some interesting pasta given to us by my Sicilian BIL (Strozzapreti), sauced with vodka sauce (courtesy of TJ’s). Cooked spinach on the side, now kind of mixed in.

Trying to catch up reading posts...difficult but SO much deliciousness!

Been very busy getting "stuff" ready for travel insurance, income tax, home security, paying bills, and deciding on what clothes to take!

We travel light - one carry-on each and computer bags - for 5 weeks! Onto Malaysia for 10 days visiting friends, then 29 day group tour to Indonesia.

So, I am trying to cook up bits and pieces from the fridge and the freezer.

Tonight, I thawed and used up a bag of beef tenderloin trimmings from Xmas Wellingtons. Made Beef Stroganoff over Zeroodle Penne and a green salad.

Other meals: Korean Roast Chicken, carrot fries and baby gai lan

@Dejah, I wish you would come help cook through my refrigerator and freezer! Your results are always so delightful!

 

On the otherr hand: would I rather you come help clear out my stuff, or go on your trip to Malaysia and Indonesia, then report about it?  No contest: Malaysia and Indonesia win. I do hope you'll consider food-blogging during the trip, or else reporting about the food afterward.

@Dejah Will you be spending any time in Yogyakarta?  My wife and I will be spending about a week in that area in the summer so we'd love to see some specifics about there - but I'd love to see all of it!  Malaysia is high up on our list, and there is so much of Indonesia left to see....

My tomato soup --  We went to Costco and bought the little cherry type tomatoes/  has 4 or 5 different ones including red,orange and yellow.  I saute'd garlic and onion, then added a like touch of Proseco to deg laze ( reduced ) then added the tomatoes, cooked  till tender.  placed in a blender,  added some salt and pepper buzzed it and strained it.  Pretty easy peasy.  The tortellini was made by my Italian friends ancient auto  machine.  Forgot to mention  I cooked them in butter

Trying to entice my mother-in-law (while trying to help out my sister and brother-in-law at bit) into eating something halfway good for her. I made a mini venison meatloaf with a bit of sharp cheddar in the middle (she needs protein), a venison hamburger  vegetable soup which is mostly veggies and a few deviled eggs.  We will see.  It all might end up being my brother-in-laws lunches for the week. 😂

For us,  a regular size venison meatloaf, again with some cheddar inside.

My second rendition of a Detroiter:   This I added Diastatic malt and 72% hydration.  But I placed it on a stone, which I don't think was ready to go.  Cheese is  white cheddar and moz

 

I still like my sauce baked on--  so until i get it closer it is what it is

Back from vacation :)

Chili with beans, mushrooms, smoky braised frozen tofu. The base sauce made with toasted dry ancho, chipotle and sweet chili.

Cornbread more akin to the southern style, but with some wheat and a small amount of sugar.

Will try to keep you posted. Depends on WiFi and how busy they keep us. Hope to have more time when we are in Yan, Malaysia, as we are staying at our friends. I am hoping her elder sisters will be there to cook for us again! We ate SO well when we were there in 2013 - breakfast, lunch, dinner, evening snacks, something different every day!

This will be the last meal I am cooking for the next 5 weeks, and my fridge is pretty much cleaned up now except for a few eggs, hald a container of Greek yogurt, and 2 pints of raspberries. Will eat that up for breakfast and lunch. Supper will be pizza delivery!

The Last Supper: last of the beef trimmings, a bag of bean sprouts, a lump of ginger, few scallions, and a bag of zeroodle fettucinni = Close-enough to Ho Fun! 😁

I haven't looked closely at the whole itinerary, but I'll keep you in mind! Apparently, there is an active volcano in the area, and its last eruption was in May, 2018!😮

There are seemingly constant eruptions in the area - but the Indonesian authorities are probably the best in the world about predicting them, and evacuating danger areas.  Last year, we were in Bali when Mt. Agung was erupting - luckily, the winds were blowing away from the airport so there were no problems with flights, and it didn't interrupt our schedule at all.
