Lunch 2019

Recommended Posts

I wish I'd taken a picture of my MIL's face when she realized that the lady she didn't recognize at our Christmas Eve celebration was my stepdad's ex-wife.  Jessica always called her "Nanny" becuase that is what her cousins called the lady.  She is considered family and comes to all the gatherings.  Besides, no one else can make lemon curd like hers!

Have you ever shared that particular recipe? If not, would you / could you? I have loved lemon curd since my summer in York, but never been satisfied with my attempts.

I would share it in a minute, but I've never managed to get it from her.  I am 100% sure that it is not about keeping a secret, because she isn't like that at all.  She even gave me one of her two very, very shallow tart pans so I could make mince tarts - she gave it to ME, not one of her three daughters!  LOL.  But, she is a very disorganized and messy and I only think of asking at Christmas when she brings jars to my house and I think she just forgets and so do I.

 

This is the one that I use.  It isn't hers, but it is very good.  And I love that it only uses yolks - lemon curd goes so well angel food cake! 😉

Congrats!   You're on the right track.   It's never a diet but THE diet, i.e., lifestyle.    Well done, and carry on.

Yes, definitely a lifestyle change. I thought I had one also before 😂 but stopped working. Life is an evolution, this is a simpler me.

Little tapas at Mi Casita.

Rendered Iberico fat with greaves.

In Spain you get bits of Jamon in this tapa dish. That's how they use the very last bits of the Jamon leg, in soups and other dishes.

Sourdough rye toast and 2 last Spanish tomatoes grated for pan con tomate.

Last day in Aracena. Cheese tasting at a cheese shop, also owned by the cheesemaker herself. All cheeses come from here in the Sierra.

Lunch restaurant is near the bus station (off to Sevilla shortly). We ate here only the other day. They do eat green tomatoes. This small plate was brought to us as soon as we ordered the beer.

Top notch Jamon again, of course.

A piece of crispy fried Iberico fat on top of the meat. The same fat I used to make Schmalz in photo above.

Looks like beef but tastes like 100% Iberico acorn-fed pork.

@BonVivant--  That all looks awesome

 

Thanks, Paul. Spain is currently the second most visited country in.the.world. Not only that, Spain also overtakes France in gastro tourism!

Decided to try something we've never tried from our Indian cookbook I've posted pictures from many times.

 

It's supposed to be a boondi curry. But we don't have a  boondi jahara - so we used a spoon w/ holes from a spherification kit.  Alas the boondi are not spheres, but they still taste good.  It's fried chickpea batter.

 

The sauce is tomato, onion (minced and sliced), turmeric (of course - look at the color), cumin, cilantro, yogurt, and cayenne.

 

We didn't put the boondi in the sauce until it was at the table,  wanted to make sure they were as crisp as possible.  This took a while to make but was really quite tasty.

Keeps on with the Indian cuisine can look strange vibe 😉

Dinner out at a favorite neighborhood joint the other night was chili dogs and club sandwiches.  I can never finish a club sandwich, so I bring it home and re-purpose it into a salad or another sandwich.  Today was sandwich.  If you are offended for some bizarre reason by the combination of house roasted turkey and lovely house carved ham, please avoid looking😁:

Piece of honey corn bread  that had minced Hatch chiles and shredded cheddar mixed in.  Heated then spread with salted butter and topped with some TJ's sweet and spicy chili jam.


Nothing is better than frying in lard.

Nothing.  Do not quote me on this.

How come you can't eat?  ☹️

Still drooling.....

 

Ugh, 4 hours of dental/periodontal surgery on Tuesday.  I look like someone hit me with a baseball bat on the left side of my face 😂

 

I'm making beans, rice and some kind of enchilada something for dinner, though.  I'm so hungry.  I'll chew little tiny bites, I swear :)
