Dinner 2019

Recommended Posts

That pie looks magnificent. Gravy appears perfect. Now I want one. 

 

It's my eldest child's birthday. She has requested Italian roast chicken, "but not tonight, please. I can't eat Italian roast chicken when it's 98 degrees outside." Can't say that I blame her. I want a pot roast badly, but it's just...too...danged...hot......

 

Come on, fall. No indication of heat breaking in the immediate future. Even a sun-worshiper like me can't deal with it in mid-September.

 

So we went out for a birthday lunch and had steak. Dinner will be snacky something.

I hesitate to post this because I expect a lot of blowback but the last time I got some ribeye cap steaks I cut them (3) in half and retied them because one each was more than either of us wanted but half of one was not enough and I regretted cutting up the other two but I had done it and they were in the freezer waiting for me to decide what to do with them.  I decided to grind them up and make hamburger with them and sous vide any I may get in the future.  Charlie had two well done and said they were really good. I had one medium and it was good too.  I figure they cost around $5.00 each.  Four more went back in the freezer.

Threw supermarket roast chicken carcass in 275 degree oven with half an onion and garlic clove, covered with water and covered with glass lid.    Took a 2 hour nap.    Awoke to scent of rich broth.   Added egg noodles and chicken meat.

Totally effortless meal.    Plus leftovers.

Buffalo wing Ramen  :)

 

Buffalo wing Ramen ( w/o Sun Noodles ) _ shisito/scallion/s/seasoned egg/ buffalo wings ( hamstrings )/ double chxn stock/ gochujang

Thank you for sharing. The texture of the yolk looks amazing and you set the outside egg white protein without overcooking the yolk. Great technique. 

 

The Chinese horse-ear diagonal cut of the scallion looks good also. 

 

Could I ask how you cooked the eggs? Was it sous vide or boiled in water? I'm guessing it's not SV since the temp to set the egg white is different from the temp required to set the yolk? 

 

Also, the color of the egg looks super interesting. I've seen Chinese tea eggs and salted duck and century year old duck egg. 

 

But for your egg..was it brined or marinated in a flavored solution? Could you describe the technique and how was the taste and texture of the egg? 

 

thank you

Short ribs off the smoker then steamed in the oven to finish.  Juicy  meat and creamy roasted potatoes

 I agree with @Anna N,  got to have peas with a hot chicken/turkey sandwich.  

Peas, and Lima beans for that matter. Contaminants that need to be suppressed

I can deal with peas and Lima beans, but give me cranberry.

(shrug) Nothing wrong with the occasional super-premium burger. :)

The egg was soft boiled ( simmered ),  I believe here.  about 6 mins.  Immediately in and ice bath, cooled  and shelled.     I have been steaming eggs lately as they release from the shell better to me.  But I believe this was boiled.

 

Simple on the flavoring,  I used a Mr Yoshida's Marinade and cooking sauce.   Put in a plastic container, so about half way up egg,  I turn it every few days and let it cure for about 7-10 dqys.  This was about 10 if I remember.

 

Great flavor for me,  the yolk had an incredible texture, very creamy.  Let me know if u need anything else

@Franci - Do mine eyes deceive me or is that a mirror as your stove backsplash!?!

 

 

 

Yes! I deeply hate it! I call this a “kitchen for those how don’t cook” 🤬 I was actually going to ask help for keeping it clean. I use detergent soap first and then  windex but It’s impossible to keep it clean. I also cracked it!!! I was just warming up my cast iron grill. I thought the mirror would be heat resistant.

I hear you. My GF and I watch a lot of reno shows and sometimes what an enthusiastic realtor or designer describes as a "chef's kitchen" makes me cringe.*

 

Glass behind the stove seems like a really bad idea even by that standard, though.

 

*(ETA: Seriously, people, how the hell are you supposed to clean a backsplash made of reclaimed barn wood? How?)

I thought it was!

 

I can imagine your pain in having to try to keep it clean.  People always say how you see dirt on white surfaces or black very easily, but I can only imagine what happens when its reflected back at you!!!

Are you renting?   If not it wouldn’t cost to much to rip it off the wall and add tile

Yes, I am renting! As you can see I didn’t spend my morning cleaning my backsplash mirror. The only advantage I can see it’s that I have an ocean view as I cook 🤣🤣🤣 obviously when it’s not covered in grease that I cannot see anything 😁😒

Consider this:

 

You can get mirror finished stainless steel sheets of the same size to put in front of the glass mirror. They are thin and will not take up room.

 

After they collected enough grease, just put the sheets in the dishwasher.

Last weekend I was off to a wine tasting and brought filo dough pastry triangles here (no photo).  Leftovers below used up remaining filo dough Monday night. Both pies filled with sweet potato purée mixed with a little Maggi, caramelized onion, shredded gouda, and fresh pecans. One pie filled with leftover roasted cauliflower, the other with slices of lowfat chicken "andouille" sausage.

Leftovers are now all used up!

Sometimes on ebay, and Amazon.

 

Search "shatter proof mirror" or "stainless steel mirror"

Ok, I can understand the mirror now.  Ocean view to be appreciated and marketed
