Can you elaborate on the “white chili”, please ?

Lucky you ! I usually have to take a 6h flight to Urumqi to enjoy that kind of lamb noodles 😉

I'm not sure which is easier: you taking a 6h flight, or me making a 6+h overland trek to NYC.

 

But the recipe here has flavors that seem close to what we remember eating at Xi'an Famous Foods. (We prefer the noodle version rather than the soup version, which is what this recipe is.) We use the chile oil in other things, too.

I usually get the dry version (not in soup), but I wanted something really warming last night.

Certainly!

 

It's a tomato-less chili, essentially.

 

Pork, cannelini beans, hominy, poblano, onion, celery, cumin, coriander, garlic, oregano, cayenne.  Sauce is stock and greek yogurt.

Another hair-raising bus journey through the Rif mountains to Nador. First meal at one of the many seafood restaurants behind my lodging. To order you pick any (shell)fish to fill a big platter. They tell  you the price, which comes with water, rice and all the sides.

A few recent dinners:

 

J3tmuQZ.jpg?1

 

Mezze rigatoni all'Amatriciana. Side salad of endive in the style of puntarelle, with anchovy, garlic, lemon, olive oil.

 

UmUXGh4.jpg?2

 

Got my shipment of the Rancho Gordo bean club, and it included farro. So, a soup of porcini and cremini mushrooms, leeks, onion, celery, carrot, and farro. A play on mushroom barley soup, I like this perhaps a bit more, as it doesn't get too thick like it can with barley. The broth includes the soaking liquid from the porcini, chicken stock, and water.

Roasted chicken thighs and fingerling potatoes. Braised endive and romaine. The almost all-white plate of winter.

Crabcakes from the Waters cookbook (could have used more binder but the flavor was excellent) with oven fries.  There was a salad also but you'll have to trust me on that 🙂

Niece won't eat crab because her brother has a crustacean allergy so I made her a cheese soufflé

@ElsieD

 

I either used CSO steam-bake  @ 400 F or possibly 450 f  I don't flip , just try to get the skin side down initially in the pan

 

then I remove when brown on top.  

 

maybe 40 45 minutes ?

 

I use brown parchment paper these days  it seems to have more silicone in it than the white

Made a second stab at Charlies request for chicken wings done Pureto Rican style and PR rice to go with it.  After some reading up on the rice ingredients, switching to a fried chicken version, and a trip to Bonito Michoacan grocery, I was able to round up everything.  It all turned out very well this time.

Last night's dinner...

 

Dinner02022019.png

 

 

Perfectly unremarkable picture that I'd otherwise not have posted but for the pineapple looking brownery in the upper center.  It is Whole-roasted celery root with coriander seed oil from Ottolenghi's Simple (pp 128,129).

 

I had never tasted celery root to the best of my knowledge, let alone prepared it.  I rather like the taste and texture.  What I did not care for was the slightly acrid coriander crust.  If I prepare the recipe again -- which at this point is doubtful -- I shall bake the root on a rack at lower temperature, and omit the coriander entirely.  A bit of rosemary might be nice.

 

As it is I was disappointed, and disappointed in Simple as a cookbook.  Unlike other Ottolenghi volumes nothing much inspires.

@JoNorvelleWalker  celery root is a tasty treat.  I’ve roasted it and mashed it.  Both applications were delicious.  Just a bear to peel

The Ottolenghi recipe did not call for peeling beyond trimming.  But yes, I'd be open to trying celery root in another capacity.

Tonight's dinner: Brunswick Stew

The extreme temperatures from the Arctic Vortex froze our water pipes. We got them thawed but the pipe into the hot water tank sprung a spray at a joint. Of course, these things happen late at night - 10:30 PM Wednesday. The water on the floor set off the alarm but we didn't know where the sensor was! After several calls from central, etc, we finally got things settled down. However, we didn't get water back until Friday morning as the repair people were tied up with furnace calls.  Good thing we were able to melt snow for toilet flushing!

So, Thursday's dinner was A & W burgers, fries, and onion rings. Got a couple of cups of water so we could brush our teeth. Hubby made coffee with bottled citrus flavoured soda water. It was drinkable but certainly wouldn't want it regularly!
Friday, picked up some beef liver that looked freshly sliced and packaged. Liver and Onion is one of our favourite meals. Hubby likes Katsu sauce for his meat.

Friday, I cut up a chicken and prepared Marinated Citrus Roast Chicken and roasted for supper tonight. Haven't made this for quite some time, and another eGulleteer reminded me how good this was. I added Thai Lime leaves along with the lemons and oranges. The gravy is lovely, sweet, tangy, citrusy.  Mashed cauliflower and mixed vegetables went well with this dish.

I am surely enjoying all y'all's dinners (and lunches and breakfasts). I have eaten nothing worthy of note in more than a week, and it's been heavy on the fast and junk food the last three days, as I've been out of town with a grandchild having surgery. I leave tomorrow for a conference, so there will be more forgettable food. I am ready for some GOOD food; perhaps I can sneak away from this conference one evening and get a good meal.

Ugh @Dejah.  That experience is certainly not fun.  I'm glad it's fixed now!

@kayb  I hope your grandchild is good and on the mend.

 

Ronnie wanted lamb chops on the grill last night.  He did an excellent job.  Lamb, for me, is very filling so I had a few bites and he ate the rest of mine plus his lol.  I finally got to use some of the caviar lentils from Rancho Gordo.  I did a roasted broccoli and lentil salad.  The recipe called for arugula, but I didn't have any so I subbed lettuce.  Oh and some green beans and some of those melted potatoes I talked about earlier.
