As best I can remember dinner was APO chicken, mashed potatoes, and frozen peas.  Liter of methode rotuts.  Which might have been alright except for the Mississippi punch.  Mississippi punch.  What better beverage for hope and reconciliation?  I was going to say something.  Anyhow eventually my arms and hands cramped and that effectively ended dinner and left me typing with two fingers.

 

My apple sour cream souffle is in the blast chiller.  Tomorrow is another day.  At least until my hands uncramp.  If I can hold a toothbrush, maybe I will brush my teeth.

 

 

Edit:  spelling.

Maybe I should just have let it be.

nice Democracy dinner !

 

Ive always thought gyros , the kind ive had

 

was stacked lamb , not ground lamb.


Traditionally, pork is used. In some areas of Greece and especially in Turkey, veal or lamb is used. The ground mixed meat variety seems to be a American-Greek speciality ...

@pattiPopeye's is our favorite place to get take out fried chicken.   We don't get it very often because the nearest restaurant isn't very near lol.

 

Steaks on the grill last night along with pickled shrimp , Brussels sprouts and scalloped potatoes

It's officially autumn...

... when I make this meal. Kale with smoked sausage and Speck (a type of cured, smoked pork belly).

Kale comes from this farm not far from my house (15km, biking in the countryside and through the woods, one way).

Not being a huge fan of champagne I did celebrate with one of these followed by crispy chicken ‘fingers’, Korean sweet potato, chipotle aioli and carrots for good measure

Nice beverage. Years ago, I had a friend who was from Mexico and was somehow related to the family that started Jose Cuervo. He had a huge collection of old reserva tequilas... although, personally,  prefer a really good tequila neat.

Oh my!!!

Wow! Those shrimp look good. 
 

Popeyes is my fave, too. My husband doesn’t love fried chicken, so we don’t have it often.

@Shelby: Can you provide more information on the Pickled Shrimp? I googles, and it was shrimp in apple cider vinegar, etc. Yours doesn't not look like them.

Inspired by Ann_T's Chicken Breast Perigord, I tried my hand at it tonight. I didn't make the sauce as I didn't have the required liquor. But I did have a new bottle of Spicy Mango sauce and it worked well.

Some meals from a weekend away. 

 Amatriciana Pasta for moi. 

20201107_221312.thumb.jpg.808782b5578ec535da7a8706f644c368.jpg

 

Schnitzel for boy. 

20201107_221258.thumb.jpg.942dd357d756e26aefad28cbc3b54a29.jpg

 

Parmy for man. 

20201107_221234.thumb.jpg.a3876958a72f1cb206005a46ca10466c.jpg

 

Garlic Bread to start. 

20201107_221336.thumb.jpg.3ad8b3ab02acf541a12444ba8c8a53b5.jpg

 

This meal was good and bad. The Sole Chef/Owner/Waiter was so nice and put so much effort in to the quality of the home made bread and pasta and well sourced meat. He just forgot about the sauces to carry it. Great ingredients that tasted of nothing. 

 

Cheese burger for child. 

20201108_194841.thumb.jpg.0f6777d1cbd747f95cf5772503cc69b7.jpg

 

Bbq platter for 2. 

20201108_194751.thumb.jpg.6b83b3128a42e1af830bbe858a5d3436.jpg

 

Judging by the leftovers we needed four 🙂

And the best garlic bread.

When one "dines out" for only the second time in eight or so months, might as well be at...

 

IMG_2752.jpeg.e8f1a9b8ff296cfcc0b9befdd05cb906.jpeg

 

At least in their lovely backyard.

 

IMG_2754.jpeg.e61235aebcae2879bc8014728512a0b3.jpeg

 

 

This is known, in NYC pizza parlance, as a half sausage. You don't have to say cheese, you don't have to say pizza, you don't have to say pizza pie, you just say: "Gimme a large, half sausage."

 

And then wait in that backyard, with your diet coke (I WAS DRIVING), wife and friends (who, since they tend to not eat too much sausage, ordered their own mushroom (a mistake, imo, but who am I to argue?!)), to enter pizza nirvana, burnt roof of mouth included.

The recipe is from Vivian Howard's new Cookbook "This Will Make It Taste Good".  The base is something she calls Red Weapons (which is something I wouldn't make unless I had really good tomatoes--not to sound snobbish, but the tasteless grocery store ones just won't do).  I can pm you the recipe if you want it :) .  The liquids are white wine vinegar and rice wine vinegar.  There are jalapeños, onions, ginger, turmeric, mustard seeds (off the top of my head, I don't have my book next to me).  Anyway for the pickled shrimp you marinate them in the red weapons over night with added herbs when you serve them.

Quick supper. Greek flavored cottage muffins, with beetroot, dill, and a few more spices. Those are super juicy within and nicely crisp outside.

Added olives to the regular salad to feel extra Greek :P We didn't feel like ouzo, so wine it is.
