Dinner 2020

Recommended Posts

@Shelby – every time I see your fries, I want some.  So I think I’ll be doing that soon.  But I want many, many more than you.  So, I think I’ll have a meal of JUST FRIES.  With some catsup and salt and vinegar for sprinkling.  I don’t know what Mr. Kim will say about such a meal. 

 

@MetsFan5 – that BGE meal is about the most delicious thing I’ve heard of in forever.  One of our traditions when we go to the Outer Banks is to stop on our last meal there at a restaurant that does steamed trays of seafood.  Mine is always clams and shrimp.  I can only imagine what corn would add to that! 

 

Jessica came over last night for dinner and to watch Hamilton.  We had cheese and carbs basically, since I forgot the salad I’d made in the fridge🙄.  Ruhlman’s Cheese Soufflés from the freezer:

Cheese board and crackers:

Including the cheeses from Aldi that the Easter Bunny brought Jessica (she’s 36😄😞

Plus, a Wensleydale with blueberries that she brought.  We are big Wensleydale and oatcake fans. The Aldi cheeses were actually pretty good.  And, because you can never have too many carbs:

Mann's had copywrited CAULILINI as a selling vehicle.    (Mann's is a long established produce grower.   I went to school with the previous generation whose parents were orchardists.  The subsequent incarnations have been very adept at product promotion. )

@Kim Shook, carbs and cheese is the best combination ever, and that meal looks delicious.


Back in the mad wild days of youth, I used to often (oh, yes, far too often!) make a meal of a fresh baguette and some kind of potted cheese (Kakauna, Boursin, Kraft Old English, I was--and indeed am--not fussy,)  Not exactly stellar in terms of nutrition, but so delicious!

Made another batch of the no knead molasses bread.  This time I used a higher proportion of whole wheat flour (2 parts AP to 1 part WW).  Came out great.

 

Dinner was more broccolini with panko shrimp.

Okay, the shrimp and broccolini looks good, but that bread looks absolutely wonderful.  And no knead?  Can you point me to a recipe, please?

Cooked indoors, too wiped out after golf to be in the heat. Sauteed shrimp, “Asian” slaw, brown rice, bottled coconut peanut sauce from Whole Foods, peanuts for added crunch.

@gfweb can you tell me more about the dip? All of it looks great! 

from memory...it was 1/3 cup drained oil-packed sundried tomatoes...chopped

1 cup mayo

1 room temp box of cream cheese

1/2 tbsp sriracha

1.5 tbsp finely diced shallots

salt and generous ground pepper

 

I mixed the mayo and cheese in a small processor and folded the rest in by hand.  Its best after resting overnight or at least a few hours.

I eat this every fortnight, with different various components each time. Chunks of fried hake (from the market fishmonger).

Love pork rinds! First boiled then stir-fried together with fermented black beans and Lao Gan Ma. Sprinkled with pan dry roasted Sichuan peppercorns.

Also beet greens with fresh turmeric and garlic

The rest of pork rinds got turned into snacks

So, restrictions have been further eased but...

Steam girl roasted small (2.5 lbs.) poulet rouge from Joyce Farms.  Started breast down, flipped and finished breast up. Nice and moist, if less than perfect skin.

Heldzl for the cook.
