Another thrown together dinner after a busy day dealing with nonsense.

Deliberately left-over chicken leg meat with asparagus and garlic (lots) served over linguine.

Red lentils with cumin, cayenne, garlic, ginger and turmeric. Added arugula to wilt, a bit of yogurt on top and served over jasmine rice.

The rose went nicely.

With your impressive repertoire of menus, I don't see that it would add a lot to your style of cooking but there are so many little things that I use it for that are time-savers and actually improve the quality of the food being cooked. It is a wonderful rice cooker, makes perfect boiled eggs every time in under 15 minutes, is great for steaming vegetables, and makes a lot of quick desserts. 

 

I already have a Zojirushi rice cooker, which I love, and a little egg steamer that I use on the rare occasion that I make hard boiled eggs.  I also do not typically eat desserts.  Basically (admittedly without trying to incorporate it) I have decided it is a redundant appliance in my kitchen.  I am planning on asking my nephew if he wants to take it when he departs for his service year in August since he will be basically living on rice and beans for a year and I could see it being very helpful in that scenario.  If he does not want it or is not allowed to bring it I will probably give it away on my local town's facebook page.  

 

This week my fish share gave me a tail piece of salmon, so I made burgers.  This one had a cabbage-carrot-peanut slaw on top.  It was different from the usual salmon burgers I make.  It was very moist and we all liked it well enough, but I don't think it will go into heavy rotation.  It was a little too sweet for me, despite drastically cutting the brown sugar in the slaw recipe.

I have tri-tip on the brain as there were nice ones at market today. Have not cooked beef in some time but Santa Maria style is my taste memory. May cave to crave.

Happy Father’s Day !

 

After making a round around one of the many lakes and enjoying sights of the (semi-domesticated) wildlife ...

... I opted for a simple grilled bacon cheese burger with fries. And a subscription to Disney+, because I really wanted to see „Blackbeard‘s Ghost“ today ...

Another delicious Toad in the hole.

This time I got to use the Tallow I made and it made such a difference.  Also reminded me of the way hot chips use to taste.

I can’t eat crab but every time you post about it I think of this dish that was one of my late husband‘s favourites. It makes a lovely appetizer. I used to put shrimp instead of crab in mine. 
Here.

You can assemble it all a few hours at a time, put it in the fridge, and bake it for service.

That looks so good - either with crab or shrimp - thank you!

Charlie had friends over again last weekend for a BBQ.  I smoked pulled pork and ribs and grilled some lamb on skewers.  Stuff was coming out of the smoker while they were arriving so I didn't think to take pictures but the next day, we had more grilled lamb with leftover sides.

I love the look of this soup. Also is that cornbread? That would be an awesome combination.

@liamsaunt maybe you actually had sweet carrots. I've had duds since not able to visit farmers market.

 

No, they were carrots from my CSA and of a regular sweetness.  I ate part of one while grating them 🙂  The slaw had other sweet ingredients such as coconut milk and peanut butter in addition to the sugar.  It does not matter anyway because my husband told me yesterday that he really does not like peanut sauces so I won't make it again.  He dislikes very few things (I can probably count them one one hand) while I have a lot more dislikes, so I try and respect his tastes.

 

Last night, a chicken salad with toasted pecans, avocado, pickled onions, and raspberries in a dijon vinaigrette.  Next time I would swap the raspberries for a soft goat cheese.

I decided to toss my ones in a Korean marinade (ssamjang, sesame oil, vinegar, garlic, honey) ... we ended up saucing the ones pictured above as well 🤗
