@Okanagancook Oh My!!!! Those are the best Yorkshires.

And marbled cream cheese brownies for dessert. 

 

Won't be cooking for a while.  Moe's  last home cook meal for probably a week to 10 days.    Having his second popliteal tibial bypass surgery tomorrow in his right leg this time. 

Going to spend the night in Victoria because he has to be at the hospital at 6:30 AM.

Thanks.  I use Elaine Lemm's Yorkshire Pud recipe.  I make the batter the night before.  I use a popover pan rather than a muffin tin.  Basically it's equal parts by volume eggs, milk and flour.  Whisked together; rested for at least 30 minutes but the longer the better.  Baked at 450F for 20 minutes.

Speedy recovery to Moe, will miss your fabulous food @Ann_T.

Happy travels @Dejah, I hope you get to Georgetown and Ipoh in Malaysia, don’t miss the chicken rice.

 

Dinner last night was falafel pockets with hummus and tabouli.

@JoNorvelleWalker – Lovely dinner on Saturday!  Do you make your slaw with Napa?  And those potatoes – Jeez Louise!!!!!

 

@Shelby – Your bread is GORGEOUS!!!!  How do you make such lovely bread?

 

@Ann_T– Hoping things go well with Moe!  I’ve been thinking about you two!

 

Some recent meals – took dinner to some friends last week.  My MIL’s  Mandarin Tossed Salad:

(I forgot to put the oranges on until halfway through dinner).  Shrimp burgers:

DSCN9250.JPG.282c2916cc28cfdae5f30c2985ea8b1e.JPG

(one on GF bread).  Frozen sweet potato fries:

DSCN9251.JPG.12c1bd49c472ab63deea608f06ae5116.JPG

 

We finally celebrated Jessica’s 35th BD (the actual date was 1/27) at our favorite restaurant in Charlottesville VA - Al Carbon:

20190302_194255.jpg.30f9284d0d368c66cf15beb10b796362.jpg

 

Sides:

Street corn, pinto beans and plantains. 

 

The incredible chicken:

Chicken cemita:

Churros:

A simple one – salad:

DSCN9285.JPG.8852a6f2f43fac67a5e0be73b543692c.JPG

 

And kielbasa, fixed up Kraft and green beans and potatoes:

DSCN9286.JPG.f98e531485ab70eab808565559d8deb4.JPG

 

Mr. Kim ordered some Father’s bacon:

DSCN9290.JPG.b6cc1201cfdfb98da48e69727c7c5451.JPG

 

I had some Armenian sweet bread in the freezer:

DSCN9288.JPG.21c5a1e8c3cf09d1b2fbfbf96ba8180d.JPG

 

French toast, bacon and fruit:

DSCN9291.JPG.cfdc9ba58aa06b421e4e75375b79059e.JPG

 

DSCN9289.JPG.3d0a0f1b787d620c1590adef068bf334.JPG

We really liked the bacon and thought it was as good as Benton’s.  But the next morning I had some that was leftover and found it a little too smoky and salty. 

 

 

I finally used my Instant Pot for the first time.  I did collards and pintos:

DSCN9296.JPG.2c658a5f68360fc10b324919261f3f64.JPG

 

DSCN9297.JPG.14d38acf3c4beb632054021cdcba769a.JPG

Also Shake ‘N Bake pork chops and fixed up Kraft.  And cornbread, of course – got the skillet good and hot – look at the sizzle:

DSCN9294.JPG.de167cb0f0f0a370385fad5129ce04cd.JPG

 

DSCN9295.JPG.385cfd4547e9cc39272ca686ff5e35d8.JPG

I was thrilled with the flavor of the greens and the beans.  Both needed a little bit more cooking time than the recipes called for, but that is an easy adjustment.

This slaw was Napa.  First time I've used Napa cabbage.  Very good but I must say for slaw regular European cabbage is easier to work with.

 

When I make European coleslaw I call it ken cut cabbage.

 

And thank you, the potatoes are indeed quite something but I already gave potato credit!

The star of this show was the mushrooms in beer butter....I bought vegetarian sausages, err that was a mistake. Served with mozzarella mash, fresh tomato sauce, a smear of hot English mustard and a salad of baby leaves.

@Ann_T I hope all goes well for Moe, and you find some decent food.  Hospital food is the worst.

 

Last night, noodle bowl with mushrooms and spinach, topped with slow cooked salmon

This almost ended up in the “I will never again…” thread because I’m not sure I’m ever making meatloaf again.  For most of my early adult life, I couldn’t make meatloaf to save my life.  It tasted fine, but fell apart – no matter what recipe I used.  Mr. Kim and I used to joke that my meatloaf made great spaghetti sauce.  Then, about ten years ago, it suddenly started working for me.  They held together and served great both hot and cold.  I haven’t made one in a long time and got a craving.  So, I used one of my usual recipes - Barbeque Meat Loaf.  I didn’t put it in a loaf pan – just patted it into shape on a sheet pan and put it in the oven.  When I went in to brush it with sauce 20 minutes later, it had begun to spread out over the pan.  Luckily, I’d put it on top of foil, so I just gathered it up with the foil and fitted it into a loaf pan and finished baking it.  It was obviously much too loose to take out of the pan, so I chilled it completely. 

DSCN9302.JPG.fe1315da35c3405cef00f0d813a258f4.JPG

When I took it out and sliced it, it was still very crumbly:

DSCN9303.JPG.26c7434d8b89f0940170f39faaa1be60.JPG

I ended up heating it in the microwave and piling it on toasted buns, topping with the sauce and an onion ring and serving it that way:

DSCN9305.JPG.878a4fa96040d08b5e07ca47150af723.JPG

So frustrating.  I have no idea what I’m doing wrong considering this is a recipe I’ve used before.  Sigh.  I also served leftover pintos and collards:

Fresh (as in live a few minutes ago), wild prawns with linguine. Quick, simple and delicious.

 I am guessing from looking at your dish that you made a simple sauce perhaps from the oil/butter/fat that you cooked the prawns in?

Kim,

There's an egg called for in the recipe. Maybe add another egg for binder?

Also, maybe 1 cup of bread crumbs is too much. What if you scaled that back? You would have a less tender meatloaf and perhaps it wouldn't be so inclined to fall apart.

And finally, what is the fat content of your ground beef? Too much fat would make for a "looser" meatloaf.

Good luck!

Yes. Olive oil, garlic, shallots and chilli.

 

Prawns were cooked perfectly, thank you.
