Dinner 2019

I've spent about the last ten days battling a summer cold and having little appetite. I have managed to make something each day, but it's been basic, survival food. Last night I felt there may be an end in sight and was determined to make something worth eating. As most of us do in those situations I hit on a personal comfort food which is tasty but relatively easy to make.

 

I've posted versions* of this more than once, but make no apology.

 

Pork tenderloin cubes marinated in olive oil and lemon juice with garlic and crushed coriander seeds, then fried. Rice. tomato and basil salad (the first of this summer's balcony basil), simply dressed with more olive oil and sea salt.

* not iterations, dammit!

 

 

Beautiful!  Get well soon.

Spied a good deal at the store--whole beef tenderloin.  Should have gone back and gotten another one.  The meat was so tender and good.

Looks scrumptious, @shain. How did you make the coconut chutney?

@shain, I am intrigued by the egg curry. I presume one beats the eggs with the yogurt, ground peanuts and spices (what spices? and would organic peanut butter, which is truly just ground peanuts, work?), pours the whole concoction into a baking dish, and bakes as if it were a quiche. The sauce I think I could muddle through; just saute the onions, add the tomatoes, coconut milk and spices, and simmer until it's thick?

 

Any pointers you can share would be deeply appreciated. I think I have to try this. I may wait until my "guinea pig," a friend on whom I try most new recipes, visits.


Don't ask. Eat it.

Poached in dilute chicken broth until tender-crisp.    Than dress as you please.     Even Caesar.    I was lazy with only EVOO and vinegar.    What sounds good to you?

 

I don't know for sure but I have a bunch of celery in the fridge and when I saw your picture, I thought, what a great idea!  I had just come back from a store specializing in olive oil and balsamic vinegars and had picked these up and I'll use an olive oil balsamic combo that would be good on celery.  Maybe the green apple/smoked hickory combo.

Dinner at Ping’An village, near Guilin, China: Bamboo chicken & rice (cooked in bamboo sticks directly in the flames), local charcuterie, egg & tomatoes, fried river fish. Enjoyed with a light beer, followed by Sweet Osmanthus wine ...

Stressful day supporting friends.    End of the week.    Really scraping the walls of the larder.

A hastily and sloppily put together tian.

I aspire to that status (assuming it's voluntary!) but have a long way to go. Your creativity is inspiring!

You got it. I blended the eggs with whole peanuts, hence effectively creating ground peanuts. But peanut butter will do perfectly well.

Here's the recipe, for you to use as a baseline.

P.S.:  I like the way your pizza's seem to ' bubble up and overflow ' the crust.

@Shelby, your honey garlic chicken always looks so good and beautifully plated.   I haven't made it in a while.  

Maybe it needs to be on the menu this week.

The other half of the sandwich from lunch (toasted marble rye, ham, cheese, mustard *, miracle whip and Mr. Ron's coleslaw) and a large salad of red leaf lettuce, red onion, minced cucumber, Cashel blue cheese and a salad dressing I have been using lately.  It is equal parts of Cain's mayonnaise, Lactaid sour cream, white balsamic vinegar, tarragon vinegar and minced tarragon.  Just didn't do it for me so added a tablespoon of Knorr Ogorkowa z grzankami soup mix(pickle soup).  Ledgewood Farm - my local place provides sushi, fresh fish, deli and for some reason they have a whole eastern European section.  I love the pickle soup mix though I don't make soup with it....also sautéed an almost over the top pear in butter and some toast dope then chopped half of it up and put them into the salad.

Tossed some chopped walnuts into the leftover butter and toast dope then onto a piece of parchment paper to cool....

 

 

* full explanation of the specific ones I use and why is in the LUNCH forum

Nothing is better than frying in lard.

Nothing.  Do not quote me on this.

I almost forgot to take pictures.  We are expecting a few people over any time now. I have been using the smoker since early this morning.  We are having pulled pork and ribs. Charlie is grilling some hamburgers and i made a fruit salad.  Everything else was store bought.

Meat and potatoes.  Saturday indulgence.  With red wine.  Naturally.
