A new spin on Mexican night in our house - I tried my hand at making my own Mexican (I learned there is quite a difference between that and the Spanish version) chorizo spice blend today and it came out really nicely.

 

It was certainly far spicier than it's Spanish cousin (and IMO far tastier) though my kids (all under 6) did not seem to mind and between gasps and gulps of water kept coming back for more!

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

Use a single edge razor blade to clean major crud off mirror.    Wash down with Windex or ammonia, with final wipe down/rinse with vinegar water.

Small plate dinner.   Steelhead tail and belly from the smoker with  green salad and leftover coleslaw.  Delicious Pinot  paired well with the rich salmon

Venison meatballs and spaghetti

Not complaining, but it's been SO busy around here.  Garden still going pretty strong.  I am canning either tomatoes or green beans every day.  So, it was nice that Ronnie was hungry for a venison roast done in the slow cooker.  Taters and carrots from the garden along with Red Lobster biscuits (made from a box mix and SO GOOD)

Free range organic chicken butterflied, then marinaded for 2 days in adjustments to Yotam Ottolenghi's Chicken Marbela recipe here along with sautéed endive spears and sous vide small red potatoes. It was outstanding! I had used chili red wine vinegar with additional 1/2 tsp cayenne, and next time I'm going to up the heat some more (to counteract the sweetness of dates and date syrup, which we ate.)

Yesterday  John's new go-to when getting ready to travel... fish sandwich.  Baked breaded fish(thinly sliced cod or flounder), tartar sauce and Udi's bread.

For me … lettuce salad topped with a tomato and cucumber salad and a 3 bean salad and a bison cheeseburger(pimento cheese) for National Cheeseburger day.

Today he is off hiking and sent him with a mixed bag of gf pasta with pesto, hard boiled eggs, potato salad and three more fish sandwiches.

Stopped at a local butcher's and got two sweet Italian sausages I'm roasting now with some onions and peppers.  Also picked up a crusty Italian roll.

Same place got some of their pulled pork and pulled chicken and made some barbeque sauce for sandwiches Saturday night before he and a friend head t a concert n the city.

Nothing is better than frying in lard.

Nothing.  Do not quote me on this.

So, there's a question where this photo belongs. The nachos thank @Shelby for good advice, @Dave the Cook for the Melty Cheese Calculator, @HungryChris for the pickles, various sous vide gurus' advice for the pork shoulder, my farmers' market tomato man, and @Tri2Cook for the encouragement. The cheese was 176g, an even mix of Pelota Roja (goat's milk), fresh asiago, and something mozzarella-like, with 53g of milk and 7g of sodium citrate. I put the grated cheese in a ziplock and added to the sous vide at 176F for 25 minutes, and did not stir it at all. I did add some local peach salsa (farmers' market).

Edited to add: the cheese might have been better were it a little runnier.

The photo occurred after a little testing. 😀

That was what the recipe was called, so that is what I wrote.  It differed from my usual recipe-free pizza in that you cooked the dough on an oiled pan, which resulted in a thicker crust than I generally prefer.  Plus, it is (sort of) square 🙂

 

Tonight, miso marinated black cod with rice and sesame spinach.  I scraped the miso marinade off before searing the fish, but not well enough because a stupid piece of marinade hurled itself projectile like across the kitchen and adhered to my face just under my eye.  Luckily I keep an aloe plant in the kitchen.

Teal season is upon us (where has the year gone????).  Lots of ducks due to lots of water still standing after all of the flooding earlier this summer.  Opening day was last weekend but it was a full moon and the ducks had fed all night and went back to roost so it was tough.  Yesterday was a better hunt.  So, teal last night roasted in the CSO.

After a half-day dentist appointment at Chiang Mai, Thailand - some nibbbling and browsing, that I’d like to sell you as dinner:

 

To start the night (and take the edge off the local anaesthetics and anxiolytics) I got something from the Duty Free at Hong Kong airport. Very, very smooth ...

 

9E344B0F-C290-405D-8417-9BFDC512B324.jpeg

 

Stumbled across a local market on my way to the “touristy” center ... who can resist grilled meat ?

A0F2EBA4-8424-493F-9589-3B2E761CABB3.jpeg

 

Pork neck, grilled with soy and bbq honey. Chopped and served in a plastic bag. What’s not to love ?

 

90737B6B-D031-4C9A-A32A-60BA6EC2C781.jpeg

 

Grilled sausages, one cured, the other one heavily spiced with curry and lemongrass ...

FB56BA0F-06B4-4407-B2A4-F9BF3B3DF00C.jpeg

 

Khao Soi: curry-based broth, egg noddles, fried noodles on top, chili, pickles, lime ...

 

ECD923F2-0C95-4776-910C-6314B8410DE1.jpeg

 

Fried chicken with garlic, soy, a bit spicy ...

Random nightmarket picture ...

 

68332FE5-FB1A-4B3B-9A44-34CE5EB60C35.jpeg

 

At home - in conjunction with a highball based on above Speyside blend - a local Lays’s variety. Pleasant.
