Dinner 2020

Recommended Posts

Can't believe I still cooked supper after the cooking party in the afternoon! But hubby needed to be fed. Supper was at 8:30 PM
Used up some of the leftover vegetables, and made up Sesame Chicken

Spaghetti with scallops and cherry tomatoes.  

Looks amazing. What seasonings/sauce did you use?

It is essentially this recipe: https://cooking.nytimes.com/recipes/1019981-seared-scallop-pasta-with-burst-tomatoes-and-herbs?action=click&module=Local Search Recipe Card&pgType=search&rank=12

 

though I do not follow the technique in the recipe at all.  I make the sauce first and keep it warm (and I add a knob of butter to the sauce too), while I cook the pasta.  I sear the scallops in a separate pan during the last few minutes of cooking the pasta.   It's very flexible.  I had lots of herbs on hand yesterday, so put in chives, basil, parsley and mint.

I laugh because I rarely follow a recipe to the letter but look at them for basic concepts.   For that reason I don’t bake.

The beginning of lent - time to give up precious habits, if only for 6 weeks. I decided for alcohol and carbs ...
 

Flash forward - feeling a bit deprived I found a Netflix show called „James May - Our man in Japan“. After the first episode I was feeling very much sorry for myself not living in Japan (or Asia in general) anymore and I decided to toast to myself ...

Whiskey highball (with one my last Hakushu bottles)

 

About half way in the second episode I feel the sincere urge for some Japanese food. Luckily I found a pouch of Kaigun Kare (Japanese Navy Curry) and I remembered some frozen Udon in the freezer ...

The combination of Kaigun Kare (augmented by some cubes of SV corned beef) and a decent highball works so perfectly !

 

So, I modified my lent theme to „give up good intentions“ until Easter, which I believe I will suceed in 😉

 

Ganbarimasu !

No no no the new view is embracing a good path rather than "giving up" something at least where I live  - seriously!  Like white at funerals.  I really want those noodles now.

Mr. Kim and I are doing the same thing we did last year - giving up restaurant meals.  At Easter we figure out what we didn't spend and give that amount to the Food Bank.  We figure we're doing good for everyone.

My sister has been giving me an Omaha Steaks package at Christmas for the last few years.  I used the last package for dinner tonight-- Italian beef meatballs.  I have a friend who says his wife cooks raw meatballs by putting them  in with the sauce and cooking them together.  I tried it. I put the frozen meatballs and some sauce together and cooked them on low for a couple of hours.  They turned out OK.  I made some garlic bread from a hamburger bun that was starting to dry out a little.

That raw in the sauce is a "thing". On the other hand don't get me started on Omaha Steak gifting -arguments were had over time...

Banh Xeo, recognizable but not up to city snuff.     i winged the crepe batter recipe, had to sub powdered coconut milk for canned, etc, etc.     But anything with fish sauce, cilantro and mint can't be bad...

Do it yourself summer rolls.... With lime/fish sauce based dip cause it's healthier...

I also prefer it to the heavy peanut sauce - not per health just taste How I was raised

Ran across a new (to us) recipe that I had to try-Brazilian Cheese Bread.  There are several different ways to make it, but, this looked like the easiest.  Reminded me a tiny bit of popovers only they were "chewier".  We liked them and gluten-free folks might want to try, too.  thumbnail_IMG_7517.jpg.d3743df9ebabd96d7936b13b3aa67551.jpg

Ate them with the homemade pasta and oxtail ragu that seems to be never ending.  I keep freezing the ragu and then I can't get my mind off of it and I have to eat it again.

Love these types of meals - especially Vietnamese rolls!

 

A local place has a $25 'platter' which includes a plate of various (pick your own) meats/fillings (I typically get bettle leaf w/ beef, spring rolls and house made pork sausage or grilled chicken) and a plate of greeneries (lettuce, herbs, pickled things, etc) and then the rice paper rolls.  Great deal, feeds 2-3 people easily.

 

I too am in the Nuoc Cham fan club.
