Dinner 2019

Recommended Posts

Shake N Bake pork chops, cooked in the BSOA on air fry mode, served with green beans in butter and accompanied by a glass of "Caboose" - a Livermore Valley Zin from 2006.  The Zin was from Livermore Valley Cellars, which, at the time, was one of the oldest wineries in the valley and now sadly gone.  Caboose was one of the "Big Ass Zin" series.  The first was called Big Ass Zin and the name snuck by the Alcoholic Beverage Control board the first year it was released, but they refused to approve it a second time.  (Names that refer to potency are not allowed.)  So in subsequent years they had fun with euphemisms like Caboose, Triple Cheek, Right Behind, Left Behind, Way Behind, Crack of Dawn, etc.

 Thanks for sharing the wine naming story. I had also forgotten how good Shake ‘n’ Bake pork chops can be.

Curried goat .

This took hours to make. First I had to make the yoghurt. This was water buffalo yoghurt. Then I took the the diced goat meat and marinated it for four hours in afore-mentioned yoghurt with curry spices, garlic ginger and chilli. Then slow cooked it all for another three hours. Added spinach for the last 5 minutes and served with rice.

Spicy chicken ramen and some pork pot stickers. The fact that I could make this without leaving the house helped in the decision making.

Leftover roast beef, sauteed onions and mushrooms, over mashed potatoes. It started out to be beef stroganoff, but I decided to separate it and will use part of what I saved for stroganoff later.

bison ragu turned into lasagna for the rest of this week for me.(johnnybird has been ice climbing and visiting friends).  salad and some simple open face tuna salad on mini rye. I really do prefer to eat this way - 1/2 cup of soup with some croutons, a little salad, some soup...

oh, yeah,  for whatever reason I was craving Buffalo wings(went up to Buffalo at least 4 times a year from college).  Precooked chicken breast strips on sale with a coupon,.  Made Buffalo sauce and really tasty blue cheese dressing.  Small tortillas and voila … dinner with a small side salad.

Nothing is better than frying in lard.

Nothing.  Do not quote me on this.

the lasagna tastes like …….NOTHING...…   

maybe I am still dealing with stuff from my bronchitis? 

no problem with the blue cheese but the chicken was neutral.   

maybe a problem with protein as the soup was fine and flavorful.....

Finally tried out the Anova I got for Christmas!
Walmart had chickens on @$1.77 lb. Picked up 5,  broke them down, and going  by googled recipes, bagged up 4 "sets".
Tonight, I did sous vide Iberian Chicken legs.

It was simple! Hooray! The legs were marinated with olive oil, paprika, thyme, salt, pepper overnight in a vacuum sealed bag.

Into a 145F bath for 2 hours, then tossed onto a pan, juice and all, with cooked "potatoes" which were turnips,  diced raw bell peppers and chunks of onion.
This went under the broiler @450F for 15 minutes.

Lovely. Will do again!
Eaten with the pan vegetables, and spinach salad with blueberries and hemp hearts. I think this may fit with the new Canada Food Guide?

One can do far worse.

 

My dinner is CSO reheated leftover chicken cacciatore.  No lack of Boursin and bread.  Indeed last night I was showing my dear boss pictures of my latest loaves and complaining that they stale faster than I can eat them.  She asked if I fed them to the birds?  "No," I said, "I feed them to Susan."  Susan who was standing a couple feet away.  Susan has two growing teenagers.  Half a kg boule does not last the night.

Lovely meals everyone, you’re giving me inspiration. 

So hot here, couldn’t face the stove. So, the night before last we had salad. One is potato with egg, one like an ensalata mixta. It had tuna, white asparagus, spring onions, homegrown black olives, gem lettuce and an apple cider vinaigrette.  Served with a slice of olive sourdough for the vinaigrette.

Last night, reverting to form, was thali # 312. Cauliflower with peas from a favourite, Meena Pathak, tomato curry from Meera Sodha, dal, rice, paratha, and finely chopped potato salad, with a plop of mango pickle.

Our dinner tonight was beef enchiladas, potato nachos and peach cobbler.  The potato nachos is one of those recipes that you have to decide if you want to make it again and if so, what changes need to be made.

 

Sorry to be so late @Norm Matthews, but I've been out of town. Here's the original post.

 

How did you make these potato nachos?

Had a craving for Ho Fun, but rice noodles are high on carbs.
Tried with Zeroodles Fettucinni. I left them to drain well, blotted as dry as I could, then dry fried them in the wok before adding oyster sauce.
VOILA! They turned out great! The oyster sauce stuck to the noodles, and they had the perfect texture.

Tossed together with stir-fried beef, beansprouts, ginger, and green onion. Eaten with a big dollop of Old Mother chili paste with nuts.

@TdeV

Here is the recipe

Potato skin nachos

4 SMALL RUSSET POTATOES WASHED (1 POUND TOTAL)
OLIVE OIL 
SALT AND PEPPER TO TASTE
6-8 OUNCES COLBY JACK CHEESE SHREDDED
1 15-OUNCE CAN Black Beans, 
 DRAINED
8-10 STRIPS THIN SLICED BACON CHOPPED AND COOKED UNTIL CRISPY
1/3 CUP PICKLED JALAPEÑO RINGS 
1/3 CUP RED ONION FINELY DICED
1-2 ROMA TOMATOES DICED
CHOPPED CILANTRO TO TASTE
1/2 CUP SOUR CREAM OR MEXICAN CREMA
 
The potatoes were cooked (in a microwave) to fork tender, then cooled enough to handle; cut in nacho size wedges. 
 Preheat oven to 400ºF.
First cook potatoes to fork tender (in microwave).  when cooled enough to handle, cut into wedges.. about 4 per potato if small. Cut into smaller wedges if potatoes are larger.Scoop out the meat, leaving enough so you can move them without breaking.

they were then transfered to a baking pan, basted with oil and baked until browned and a somewhat crispy.  Then they were layered (about 3 layers) with cheese, beans, bacon and jalapenos and baked again until the cheese was all  melted.  Before serving, topped with onion, tomato, cilantro and sour cream.
