Tonight, our new favorite way to do chicken breasts.  Cut into smaller pieces, dredge in flour (w/ S&P), then egg, then panko, then fry!

With some BBQ of course (not pictured, not homemade this time)

For the first time in about a year I made a not Indian meal last night.

A family recipe, broccoli and anchovy pasta with a slice of olive sourdough.

Day three of howling winds and below zero (F) temps. I spend so much time bringing in fire wood and feeding the wood stove every 2 1/2 hours, my dinner imagination has gone into hibernation.

I made meat sticks. Teriyaki chicken and Lamb Kofta, on the BBQ as it's disgustingly hot. 

There was coleslaw and potato salad and a deconstructed Beetroot and Feta salad to go with. 

I didn't photograph the sides as when I entered the store to buy the ingredients I got slapped in the face with ICBF-itus and ended up at the deli. 

The Beetroot and Feta is so deconstructed its still untouched in the fridge 😁

Another planned-over dinner.  Reserved some of my lunch pork and miso soup, added some separately cooked udon noodles and drizzled with a little commercial green onion oil. 

The green onion oil was tasty but I was disappointed that it was not green but clear. I found it in the Korean supermarket a couple of weeks ago.

 

I really should break down and make the Momofuku version one of these days.

Trout which was filleted and the halves were sandwiched between a shrimp stuffing all cooked en papillote.  I made a light white wine/shallot sauce...which was a bit thin and got thinner as the juices came out of the fish which resulted in my steamed veggies and air fryer fries swimming in liquid.  It wasn't pretty but tasted quite nice.  I don't really like the texture of fish so ate about 1/3 of it.

What started as a perfectly fine low-carb dinner featuring various cuts of beef and offal somehow went south after miraculously a bottle of Dassai 50 appeared ...

 

(not pictured: subsequent beer, chocolate cream puffs and the “Absacker” I will have once I reach home - I better book this under “cheat meal” 😆)

Sunday game night food

 

Fried hot wings and gizzards with fries, dipping sauces (bleu cheese, hot sauce and gravy) and some puff pastry pinwheels (pesto and dried cherry tomatoes that I made because they were going south)

Took a local bus to Tétouan through the Rif mountains. The height wasn't the problem, it was the endless bends and impatient, reckless driving - an Olympic sport in Morocco.

Face was still drained of blood by the time I sat down to eat lunch.

Couscous always comes with a savoury sauce.

Was pleasantly surprised that I could order a beer, my first in days. Lamb skewers. Nice but could not compete with grilled meats in Fez. In fact, Fez excels at too many things.

Mint tea and coffee, night or day it doesn't make any difference to Moroccans.

My 2 dinners at home. French "label rouge" free-range corn-fed chicken, poached in the oven. Ate some of the meat with chilli garlic sauce and greens.

Some broth was used in this.

And the leftover meat.

Letcho with peppers, cabbage and mushrooms. Plenty of paprika, garlic and some caraway.

The eggs poached shakshuka-style rather than roughly scrambled.

Letch did not get me anything that sounded a bit appetizing so I’m going to guess the Hungarian dish letcho? I love the look of the bread.

Chilli Mussels. Hot enough to match the heat of the day.

I added some pasta just to make it stretch a little.

You guessed right, that was a typo on my side. Thanks for noticing. 

I'm lucky to have a bakery nearby that produces decent, if simple, breads (not an obvious thing outside of the cities here). Sadly they could do better with their wholemeal breads, as this 50% one was a little dry.

Had an out of town friend here for the weekend.  Dinner Saturday night was Cook's Illustrated BBQ shrimp:

 Sunday night after our company left, we had the shrimp leftover from the night before and croissant from the same bakery:

Kung Pao Gai Ding without the gazillion dried chili peppers. Eaten with Zeroodles "egg fried rice"

Pulled out a piece of AAA beef tenderloin - purchased July 2018 @ $11.99 / lb. Didn't think it was "old enough" to go into the Clear out the freezer challenge.
Cut into a couple of steaks, seasoned with Montreal Steak Spice and grilled in the cast iron pan on the stove. Eaten with roasted cauliflower, sauteed mushrooms, and spinach salad.
