I cooked the last corned beef from the freezer a few nights ago, to make room for another dozen or so. Lunch today was a no brainer.

Count me on the list of people that are happy to see you!  I, too, have been missing your food!

Last week many places celebrated carnival. There are several snacks/light meals that are eaten during the silly partying days in Köln, Germany but I made them a bit differently.

Purple sweet potato rösti with apple mush (in Germany you get potato fritters).

Tempeh tomato paste on bread (in Germany Mett-häppchen or Tartar-häppchen. Raw mince on half a roll.)

Herring with cream and beetroot

The dough is simple: flour, ground almond, booze, eggs, baking powder etc.

Berliner is a must during carnival. These are store-bought.

Fastnacht was the only time mom made the donuts with a coin in one. Much anticipated and enjoyed. We always had a vanilla bean in the powdered sugar shaker.

The best thin I have ever had for lunch. Coconut Crab with some kind of sweet curry sauce.

Found here. Chez Louis Beach Bar & Grill. pretty much a shack at Port Olry. Espititu Santo. Vanuatu.

A stunning place.

Sweet potatoes and russets in the oven finishing baking.  

I'm going to open up one of the russets and top it with Bebop Chicken Chili I made on Sunday.

The others will go toward eggy potatoes for John's breakfast.

I will scrape the sweets out and use a cup to try an interesting recipe for him for the weekend...a blueberry bar that includes the sweet potato and some chopped apple with the blueberries.

Also have to test a recipe for one of the entities I test regularly for -  a white bean soup.

We call them Bugs. Also known as Slipper Lobsters and yes a different taste, more delicate and often prefered than Lobster/Crays.

Like "Balmain bugs": - sweet and tender. Our local spiny lobster has a similar flavor though more firm texture  Pretty accurate Wicki https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/California_spiny_lobster

Toasted wheat bagel, open face, with peanut butter and mixed berry preserves. Sometimes there is nothing better than PB&J.

This kind of fast food I could get used to.

New place. Chicken Salad Chick. A scoop of one of their dozen different chicken salads, a scoop of pimiento cheese,  crackers. Pickle spear, a couple of small cookies, broccoli salad. With a Diet Coke, it cost me $13. The CS and PC would each be enough for a BIG sandwich. I'll be back.

北京炸酱面 (běi jīng zhá jiàng miàn )

 

Beijing Zha Jiang Mian - Noodles with Soy Bean Paste - Beijing's favourite noodle dish, perhaps.

 

But this example was eaten in Nanning in Guangxi.

Pretty cherry blossom bowl and as a green color person -love. We just had our Cherry Blowwom Festival - enormously popular in the Asian community Soy bean paste is underappreciated here abouts though our huge Korean influence is pulling such paste to common use.

Prep for weekday lunches, extra firm tofu which I pressed for a couple of hours, brushed with hoisin thinned with a little balsamic, some powdered ginger, garlic, and black pepper mixed in. Baked for about a half hour at 400 degrees. I like my triangular soldiers!

A bunch of different leftover ingredients living happily together as dumplings.  Cole slaw was rinsed thoroughly, chopped with gyro chicken in food processor, mixed with hummus and herbs sauce.   Surprisingly delicious lunch.  Dipping sauce: soy sauce, rice vinegar, sweet chili sauce.
