Dinner 2020

Recommended Posts

We had a 4 day break over on North Strtadbroke Island as they have lifted restrictions. I even had a beer at the pub.  WOOT!

The house is in restoration at the moment so no oven or stove so the BBQ it is.

 

Nachos done waiting for salsa, sour cream and coriander.

Pork tender loin, spuds & sweet potatoes.

It was so good to get away again. I even got a morning fish down on the main beach.

Must be mac and cheese night!     I split the pan, adding tomato and crumbs to mine, leaving husband's plain.   Everybody happy.

@Norm Matthews I haven’t heard of the Smoking Goose. Now I have about $400 worth of things I don’t NEED sitting in my online basket.

We each picked two restaurants that do Covid takeout. Picked the name out of a hat. One of hubbys Mexican choices 'won'. 

You win some you loose some. Flavours are awesome. Temp/portions not so awesome.

@Norm Matthews, I think you can go and ask for a referral discount 😁, I shared the link to my husband and I can see a package coming this way too 😆

@Franci  They often have sales.:D

 

 

   I hope so because I already have a cart full of delicious looking snacks and we are putting up a large inflatable pool this weekend. Snaking like that in the pool...😎

Made another rye bread - traditional with caraway for a change.   Dinner was tri-tip, cooked SV then seared, served with green beans with butter and small slice of rye.

Your rye bread has a lightness rather than the sometimes dense ones. Thumbs up! I do like the heavy ones for open face sandwiches but I could happily sit at your table. Our Sunday ritual was rye w/ caraway from Jewish bakery after church. Yup - LA bit of a mash of cultures in a good way

Pasta salad...little shells, grape tomatoes, TJ’s marinated grilled artichokes, red bell pepper, pesto (used some of the artichoke dressing plus red wine vinegar to thin it out). Shredded rotisserie chicken breast. I ate it over a bed of lettuce with a little balsamic glaze.

A hot and steamy NYC evening calls for Saigon inspired DIY summer rolls made with chicken thighs from the CSO and some herbs from my garden.

@KennethT I just love that you can say "herbs from the garden" posting I think from a NYC apartment. Your eG stripes are firmly in place ;)  I do realize you are growing the kids.

I had envisioned the spare CSO as a NY chicken coop.

Stepmother wants an air fryer. Your chicken may push her over the edge.
