Our local Shoprite occasionally offers monkfish heads.  So far I have passed.

 

It'd make a great photo....

Yes - I think it is a common technique, especially for the group of “red-braised” dishes to intensify the color. As the sugar doesn’t dissolve in the oil you can nicely watch the process …

 I candy bacon by caramelizing sugar in the bacon fat.  Great contrast in flavors

interesting

 

do you then use that oil in the dish ?


Yes, you fry the chicken and everything else afterwards in that oil. It’s a one-pot preparation 😉

Frost on rooftops this morning. The inevitable is coming.

 

A meal all in one for a friend who's recovering from surgery. Had enough for ourselves as well: Won Ton Soup

Found a package of 2 marinated turkey drumsticks in the freezer, probably from Easter. Roasted with butternut squash fries.

I use an app from our Superstore, and every once in a while, I can pick up nice bargains, like lamb, and yesterday, large scallops. These all have a Best Before Date that falls on "next day" for me. The items often go into the freezer (items NOT previously frozen). We had Panko-coated scallops last night. Had picked up a bag of Cavendish fries, which I didn't realize they were ultra thin cuts. They were good and fast along with roasted bell peppers and zucchini chunks.

Asparagus, baby beets, green goddess

Rainy day veal shank, mushroom, barley soup.

Turkey barley soup pulled from the freezer will be dinner tonight. I love barley but veal shanks are an "order two weeks ahead" thing here. Any kind of veal really. Never see it at mainstream grocery stores, only butcher shops. And I have asparagus, but alas no beets. Otherwise I would be copying your salad - it looks delicious!

Do you not have a Sobeys near you? (I remember correctly that you're in BC?) They've started stocking veal as a regular thing. Not that I've seen shanks, mind you, but I haven't been explicitly looking for them either.

No Sobeys in my part of BC - southwest coast. Nearest town has Freshco and Save-On, neither of which carry veal. A little further away there is a Safeway (one of the few remaining) and a Real Canadian Superstore. I know that least one of those are owned by Sobey but don't recall which. I'll have to google, although I am quite happy to patronize my local 3rd generation butcher if and when I need veal.

@Ann_TYour roasted potatoes are always so perfect.  I need to dig through the freezer and see if I have any pheasant because now I want piccata.

Thanks @Shelby, that is how I feel about your fries.

Before I left for work this morning I gave Moe some options for dinner. Halibut, Steak or roast beef dinner.
Roasted a small Sterling Sliver Top Sirloin roast. Roasted at 500°F for 20 minutes.
Rested while the potatoes finished cooking. Served with mashed potatoes, gravy and buttered peas.

It's Safeway that's owned by Sobeys, fwiw.

Isn't that a pisser. I keep my bread in non functional Bosch microwave and every once in a while, not often, a mold spore lands. Really throws plans off.

 

I keep meaning to try @nathanm's method of storing bread under an atmosphere of CO2.

Yesterday was pretty warm so we decided to grill some chicken and corn.  Grilled chicken on street corn off the cob, and a salad with romaine, avocado, red onion, and some mint dressing from last week that I found in the back of the fridge.

My parents are stopping by on their way back from their Palatinate holiday. Temperatures have dropped significantly in the last two days, so when I asked them what they would like to have for dinner both requested “chicken soup, maybe Asian” …

 

I gave a few options and my mom chose Phở Gà. I prepared about 4 L of aromatic stock over the course of the morning and made some SV chicken breast as inlay (plus rice noodles, spring onion and bean sprouts). Herbs & everything else for tweaking the soup was served separately. It was quite a success.

My fathers had thirds and asked to take some of the remaining stock home 😊

Looks fantastic - I've been jonesing for some asian chicken soup lately - personally, I've been leaning towards an Indonesian soto ayam, but I certainly wouldn't turn down your pho ga!

I hear you - Soto Ayam was one the choices I gave them, while the final one was Kotteri Tori Ramen (like Tenkaippin). I supplied them with pictures and short descriptions, and after conversation over dinner I think they chose Pho because it didn’t contain egg (which seemingly they had plenty for breakfast during their holiday).
 

My wife and son would have gone for the Ramen while I was actually also thinking Pho or Soto Ayam because I wanted something spicy …

Pork tenderloin slow-cooked in Tony Chachere's seasoned butter, over grits, with oven-roasted kabocha squash on the side.

Inspired by @liamsaunt and @Margaret Pilgrim, I pulled Spot Prawns out of the freezer this morning before leaving for work.

Made Pappardelle with a simple tomato garlic basil sauce and grilled the prawns. (cast iron grill pan).

 

I wasn't really in the mood for prawns so I just had pasta.
