Time to horrify some Americans (and probably a lot of other people too 😂!) 

 

This is what happens when you leave Dad in charge of dinner for a child thats been at soccer camp all day! The 2kg frozen solid lasagne that was first choice some how didn't unfreeze and cook in the alotted "cook fresh" time with an extra 10 minutes and 20 degrees 🤦‍♀️.

 

A starter of Beans on Toast.

A sort of Indian chaat nachos.

Thin wheat flour dough with various whole spices, rolled thin, buttered and baked crisp.

Constructed with chickpeas, mozzarella (I wanted a clean milky flavor), onion, chilies, tomato, cilantro. A chaat masala of sorts, with various toasted spices, amchor, salt and a bit of sugar. Plenty of yogurt. Mint and tamarind chutneys. Sev.

@ambra I have been purchasing this wine since 2006.  The 2017 is young, dark fruited plum, cherry, cocoa, some mint and tannins are soft and acidity brings a lightness to the dark fruit.

The snack that became dinner.  Baked shrimp & celery toasts from Andrea Nguyen's Vietnamese Food Any Day

IMG_3083.thumb.jpeg.b387fc47aa9c97c8efeafbd25ee0a312.jpeg

I liked the Viet use of baguette slices instead of the white bread squares more common in Chinese shrimp toast.  Brushing the bottoms with the butter/oil mix really does give them that crispy fried base without turning them into little oil bombs as can happen sometimes when frying. The celery added a nice crunch and lightness and didn't go all watery like I feared.  Good recipe.  Similar to this one from her previous book except for the add of chopped celery & paprika sprinkle and a quick broil to puff them up once the shrimp has cooked.

I was thinking about this the other day. I've lived in China for 24 years and have never, ever come across shrimp toast. It may exist somewhere, but...

 

I have come across Ms. Nguyen's open sandwich things in Vietnam though.

Because it often shows up at dim sum, I always figured it was a Cantonese sort of thing but maybe it's just a US dim sum oddity.

Maybe it is. I've only ever had in England.

I never saw it in Hong Kong but I was only there a week and had dim sum maybe 8 times. Not that I was actually looking for it mind you...

Still had green beans and tomato from the farmers market so we had those with grilled ribeye steaks.  Charlie had his with mac&cheese. Mine was a nuked potato.  The green beans were done in a couple minutes in the Instant pot.  Neither of us like crispy green beans.

For my nephew, brother, husband, and brother in law: grilled Snake River Farms ribeye tenderloin with ramp butter (I made this butter back in the spring and froze it in a log), roasted broccolini, and mashed potatoes.  This was supposed to be yesterday's dinner, but adaptation is sometimes required.  You will have to trust me when I say the steak was perfectly medium rare.  I cannot ask the group of people who could care less about food photos to hold up while I take multiple pictures 🙂

No chance I was eating that dinner.  The last time I ate beef, I was 15.  I don't care if others like it, and I will cook it for them, but it is not for me.  Instead, I made a tomato sandwich with the last heirloom tomato from my CSA. I only ate half, and my brother in law has already claimed the other half for a midnight snack.
