Lunch 2020

Recommended Posts

With several chains automatically supersizing their sandwiches (Arby's advertises that their meats/fish/chicken "hangs over" the bun), we often split one order.    We started that long ago with fair and flea foods.    We would get carried away with a stand's claims and each get one of something only to find we didn't like it.    So we started getting one and split it and it was ethereal, get another.   Often one was enough, especially if there was ice cream or floats or else down te aisle.

Very green "boxed" soup with mandatory splat of Mexican sour cream, olive bread toast.  And croutons from homemade bread, because you can't have too many carbs.

Scallops with Spicy Beans, Tomatillo, and Citrus from Alison Roman's Nothing Fancy. Recipe available online at this link.

IMG_2124.thumb.jpeg.ab6388b760ba490647fa1ae4d2de1845.jpeg

I purchased this book as a Christmas gift for my cousin and this was one recipe that I photographed because the combination of ingredients sounded so curious and since I found 2 open bags of scallops in the freezer the other day,  it was time.  Quite nice.

the knife work on the citrus and tomato looks very good and matches the scallops - real pro

Every time I make chicken pot pie, I wonder why I don't make it more often. It's one of the few things I make with canned soup, and with Pillsbury rolled up in the fridge case piecrusts, it goes together in about 10 minutes.

Besides, it's National Pi Day. So, there you have it.

 

If anyone's interested, it's a couple of cups of chopped up cooked chicken (I used a breast and a leg from a rotissiere chicken), a bag of frozen mixed veggies, a can of cream of chicken soup, and a cup of grated cheddar cheese, between two pie crusts. So simple. So good.

As of today I will need to work in „my“ home office. As the schools in Germany are closed from today as well for the next five weeks, I will have to chance to cook daily lunch as well ... and will try to linit myself to whatever we have in the house - dry, canned, frozen. So, without further ado - my first Corona „vacation“ lunch:

 

Tortiglioni with minced meat, tomato and spinach. Topped with Parmigiano and lots of black pepper ...

A leftover slab of Saturday's chicken pot pie. (Don't look, @liuzhou!)

Once in a while I pull a recipe out of a cook book and try it, this is Corn Cakes with Creole Shrimp.  It's from Sara Moulton Cooks at Home.

We won't be making this again.  My wife liked it, but the corn cakes remind me of potato pancakes my mother would make and I couldn't stand.

That’s too bad because they certainly do look delicious.

Rice, cooked with three kinds of mushrooms, veggies and pork stock. Part of my „Corona“ cooking ...

not in the least inspiring but I’m determined to post what I can when I can. Domino’s Pizza from the freezer. My lunch. In its favour you will note there are no green peppers, lentils, chickpeas or even corn so it will offend fewer people.

Asparagus, Goat Cheese and Tarragon Tart from Melissa Clark's new book, Dinner in French with asparagus from today's farmers market.

This was very nice and the raw asparagus roasted nicely while this was baking but I don’t think I’d make it again as written. Might consider doing it as individual pastries.  My brain just wasn’t in the mood for arithmetic this afternoon so I made the whole thing.

Yesterday we went grocery shopping for a few items, and splurged on sandwich food. It's intended to be road food, but I simply couldn't resist getting into the deli meat. I should know better than to get into the Genoa salami! I also opened a last jar of homemade pickles. Since they were labeled 2016, it was probably time.

A late lunch of repurposed leftovers from a few days ago. The dollop of ricotta cheese was inspired by @blue_dolphin. Soupy Rancho Gordo pinto beans (cooked in the slow cooker) with brown rice, polish sausage, spinach, and ricotta cheese. I also added a bit of Trader Joe's mango chutney.

The easy way to do this would be to say check what I had for lunch yesterday – – guess what —  I’m having the same today. But I committed to being as contributive as I could given the circumstances.

NO!  It is not the same slice of pizza that I showed you yesterday. Try and line up those pieces of pepperoni!
