I was not hungry for this, but it’s what we had. 
 

Hamburger steak with mushroom and onion gravy, mashed potatoes, green peas. (The dogs were happy that I wasn’t hungry for the meat.)

Significant Eater was feeling a bit under the weather, so congee it was.  Thai congee - aka jok.

 

Pork "meatballs," scallions, etc. etc. With a swirl of chili oil and a sprinkled of crushed Thai chilies.

A soup of roasted sweet potatoes and carrots, also red lentils. With orange (zest and juice) sage and spices: fenugreek, chili, cumin, paprika, coriander seed, fennel seeds, nutmeg (Indian-ish vibe). Topped with cashew and pistachios, orange zest, cilantro. Rice noodles.

Cabbage/apple/pecan salad.  This is not something I would normally make, but I'm changing that now.  We really liked it.  Simple dressing of olive oil, apple cider vinegar, honey, salt and pepper.  Still really good this morning--I'm eating some now.

I don't think I've ever seen cusk in the markets I shop. Come to think of it, I don't recall seeing it in markets on the cape, but don't really remember looking for it.

 

I never see it in the markets here either (not that I have been inside a market since March).  It's always a treat when it comes in the fish share.

 

Last night, miso glazed salmon over udon noodles with pea shoots

@liamsaunt – Your fish and chips are gorgeous!  Would you please share your recipe for the batter for your fish? 

 

@Shelby – I always love your big sandwiches.  That one is making me hungry in the middle of the night. 

 

@Captain and other pork belly aficionados – I’ve only ever eaten pork belly as bacon or pancetta.  When I see thick chunks of pork belly in pictures, there often seems to be a thick layer of fat on the top.  Do you eat this layer of fat or is it there for flavor and it is cut off when you eat it?  I don’t think I could get it down if you are supposed to eat it. 

 

@patti – the dogs wouldn’t care for me.  I’ve never NOT been hungry for the meat.  And that meat and gravy look fantastic. 

 

Sunday dinner was fairly good pizza from a nearby place.  Sunday dinner😳🙄.  Pathetic.  I am definitely losing my GRITS card.  Some vegetables:

All the meats:

It’s good.  But this is what you get when you ask for extra well done:

I guess it’s just that their ovens don’t get hot enough. 

 

 

Monday was SV extra thick pork chops, butterbeans, potatoes, and peaches:

The pork was rubbed with Penzey’s BBQ seasoning before being vacuumed and the sauce was caramelized onions, commercial BBQ sauce, and cooking juices from the bag.  The peaches were picked this summer by my in laws and frozen by me.  Served with cornbread:
