OK as long as it's not kale. 

 

 

Kale does exist here, I'm told, but I've never come across it. That said, gailan or kai-lan is a variety of kale, but I  seldom see that here either and never venture down that road.

The time pressed Australian has long known the glory of the single serve pie, easy to eat one handed whilst driving 10,000,000 km to the next town 😂

I just can't do it (without a sheet of puff pastry crumbs down my top, jeans, boots).

An assortment from Shaya

fullsizeoutput_395a.thumb.jpeg.7f09db89829d145d31ef9287539db708.jpeg

Clockwise from top left:

Moroccan Carrot Salad p 366 - carrots are lightly roasted and tossed with olive oil, vinegar, harissa, paprika, sugar caraway, cumin, orange zest, thinly sliced onion and mint leaves

Labneh with Peppers and Radishes p 38  - the chopped green bell peppers are briefly blanched in heavily salted boiling water which nicely reduces the green-ness.

Pita p 302 - I've been making these with whole wheat flour, a blend of Sonora and Red Fife

Bulgarian Lamb Kebabs p 16 with Prepared Tahini Sauce p 392 - kebabs are made from ground lamb, bread, buttermilk, onion, smoked paprika, cumin, parsley, dried milk powder and S&P. 

Israeli Salad p 33 with Preserved Lemon Vinaigrette p 393 on butter lettuce

Reheated leftover pumpkin soup as mentioned in the "clean out your freezer" thread. I had thrown some leftover cooked/seasoned quinoa in before I froze it, added a bit of nice texture.

I am strange so my freezer is empty but I did have leftover pumpkinn from holiday baking. I used it as the liquid element in Juffy cornbread. Very good.

Just be glad you get cutlery, even if it's melted dirty paring knives.

They use the same mesh wire clamps for fish and meat.

@BonVivant  Those grilled fish look wonderful. Are they winter anchovies (hamsi) like this?  https://eatingasia.typepad.com/eatingasia/2011/10/hamsi-anchovies-black-sea-turkey.html

 

 

Not really sure. Morocco is a big producer of tinned anchovies and sardines. Many eateries have sardines and anchovies on their menus. The price is sweet, 25 dirhams (2,50 euros). Costs up to 6,50 euros for the same plate in Portugal and Spain!

@Anna N

It's a simple dish:

3 onions, chopped - caramelize deeply with butter

2 cloves garlic, mince and saute shortly

Add:

1 cup milk 3% fat (220 ml)

3 eggs

3 tbsp flour

1/2 tsp baking powder

nutmeg, to taste (about 1/4 tsp, but depends on freshness)

salt, to taste (about 1 tsp)

optional: chopped parsley

optional: Grated cheese such as Gruyere or Emmental.

Mix well.

Pour into lightly oiled pan.

Bake apx 45 minutes at 180 deg C (it should be set, but don't over bake).

Let chill well, otherwise it will be liquidy. Can be made ahead.

Best reheated before eating

Mangrove snapper,  $12.99/lb,  sandwich at my local road side fish joint close to where I do some fill in work.  With a side of hushpuppies, sure hit the spot   Sorry no pics but it was totally enjoyable.  Cooler in the car to pick up more fo dinner

Try to make childhood favourites for lunch when the kids come home. My Mom used to make these for them when they were little.

Char Siu Baos. Made my own Char siu but bought the ready mixed flour.
I made 3.5 dozen with the filling. Had dough left over, so steamed some Chinese sausage and wrapped them with the rest of the dough.

Kids will each take some home.

UVA basketball lunch was nachos.  Chips:

DSCN9068.JPG.26d9132ef64f1fb3828b11121255ece6.JPG

 

Sonic chili and beans:

DSCN9069.JPG.e5a9d83183e9aa04b3f59e2aff1320b0.JPG

 Our Sonic has just started selling their chili in bowls instead of just topping hot dogs and such.  I love it on things, but probably it is a little too homogeneous to eat a whole bowl.  

 

Cheese:

DSCN9070.JPG.12663b53fd630f203f20c86924a9e6cc.JPG

 

I doubled the layers – out of the oven:

With lettuce, tomatoes and scallions:

DSCN9073.JPG.79aa04b6b3a7e662a5590f85bc82099a.JPG

 

Celery and carrots to dip and various add-ons:

DSCN9067.JPG.9cf895a3c3a8b69ad9a433b009d8e794.JPG

Everything tasted great, but got soggy very quickly.  I realized that usually when I make nachos, I use some ground beef with taco seasoning, which is fairly dry.  The chili was very wet.  So, I’m thinking that next time we do it with chili, I should just heat the chili, beans and cheese and use it like a dip, adding the fresh stuff as we eat it.
