My favourite of all flatfish is brill. I scoff at turbot (in same family) and sole (Solea solea), much of both are now farm-raised .

And speaking of Santorini, apparently it's not expensive enough and who cares about the views. Same food on both plates but the food and water remained untouched for a long time.

For some strange reason I have this very strong feeling I‘d love that combo ever since I heard about it not too long ago. I have no cultural or intellectual access to the concept, yet I know I‘ll enjoy it. Another weekend project …

Can you get maple syrup in Germany?

Host's note: this was moved from the Midernist Pizza topic.

 

 

Isn't everything made at home artisanal?

 

Today's lunch for Significant Eater and me was one style of traditional New York dough, as I don't think there is only one style...

They're too busy making pizzas to deal with a web site, evidently...http://newparkpizza.com/

As we had „pizza“ last night, today’s pizza & movie night was wide open for suggestions. My wife decided for some „comfort food“ 🤔 …

 

I was not aware that my usual options made her uncomfortable, but upon further investigation I found out she was in the mood for Schnitzel with Bratkartoffeln. Sure, why not …

 

The setup …

Good things are about to happen …

Yeap.

Bratkartoffeln

And on the table with a cream & a wild mushroom sauce (thanks to a cupboard full of dried ceps & death trumpets), two sliced tomatoes (so everyone could check the salad component in the mental nutrition list) and some beers because thats what people drink with Schnitzel.

Plenty of leftovers for tomorrow‘s Schnitzelbrötchen 🥳

Wow - just wow. I love schnitzel and yours looks perfect. Now regretting my roast chicken dinner. I'm sure it will be fine, but I really want schnitzel!

@Dante – beautiful stuffie!  I need to learn to make my own because I detest spice heat and bell peppers and every single stuffie I’ve encountered has one or the other or both in them.

 

@gfweb – those scallops are absolute perfection!

 

@Shelby – thank you for the link to the stuffed cabbage recipe.  Also, I cannot believe how gorgeous your tomatoes still are! 

 

@Tropicalsenior – Jessica was thrilled to see that her pineapple casserole is a favorite!

 

@KennethT – not @liamsaunt, but I know a good trick for removing the central tendon from the chicken tenderloins. 

 

@Anna N – your sheet pan meal looks delicious, especially the onions, which I keep going back to look at!

 

@Norm Matthews – that casserole looks fantastic!  I went right to your blog and got the recipe!  Hope to make it soon!

 

We are still in the midst of getting Jessica’s old apartment ready for inspection.  She and her kitties are here at our house, but now the clean up is the project.  I work over there until I’m about to drop and then grab dinner somewhere that’s open late.  So, there are not a lot of home cooked meals in the last couple of weeks since I posted last. 

 

One night Mr. Kim requested brats:

IMG_7345.jpg.39a75e83338980fba1a9cf52cbcbefea.jpg

 

With hard rolls, fixed up Kraft, and Brussels sprouts:

IMG_7346.thumb.jpg.5f9d9db6d1d296dab08f2bb28831a939.jpg

 

Dessert was the apple pie that my MIL brought:

IMG_7368.jpg.c7bf863c2526521e3689ce19ef0f6ccd.jpg

 

IMG_7369.jpg.22df46d1f6256f0567647e3d59778682.jpg

She is normally an excellent baker, but unfortunately this was not one of her best efforts.  She used WAY too much demerara sugar on the top and the pie was so watery that the bottom crust basically reverted to raw pastry.  Also, the apples were very uneven – some were lovely and tender, but others were distinctly crunchy. 

 

One night I tried a new recipe that was recommended by some friends.  It’s a slow cooker recipe that consists of just chicken, stuffing mix, cream of…soup, water, sour cream and frozen green beans:

IMG_7371.jpg.d6683f34b352e03f3c0406af675ca7e8.jpg

 

Plated:

IMG_7372.jpg.f15a8fe2383c2c16d2a7292edebc7ce1.jpg

It looks like the dog’s dinner but was actually really good and just what was needed after a long day.  It needed a little work – more stuffing mix and poultry seasoning we thought.  The original recipe called for frozen green beans, which we detest, so I used whole canned ones. I was worried that doing them for the same amount of time would make them into utter mush, but they were fine.  Served with some raw veggies (this was an I barely tried meal):

IMG_7370.jpg.871c79b0c3d74592b2f5c2c99ce378bf.jpg

 

Jessica’s best friend came over to help Jessica put her bed platform together.  We had sandwiches and sides.  Mortadella, turkey, ham, and salami:

IMG_7379.jpg.6302f0e7d7f0a606a92863d0ee7dcf3d.jpg

 

Bread and rolls:

IMG_7380.thumb.jpg.760af7867088c9c33f2415e3a9a69743.jpg

 

Various cheeses:

IMG_7381.thumb.jpg.f35870816ecf9d5e8696ab2c09fb7b07.jpg

The unwrapped ones look tacky, but I wanted them to last longer in case no one chose them.  Tuna salad and condiments:

IMG_7382.jpg.64083eff163a6a11ed14d6ebd32de999.jpg

 

Pickle-y stuff:

IMG_7383.thumb.jpg.1a2588aaf23e55129dab74106735d351.jpg

 

Fruit:

IMG_7384.thumb.jpg.9511776157b6201f3229413aab9941a4.jpg

 

And what we call “chippy dip”:

IMG_7385.jpg.f0fcb49c430eebca6150ceb4fdfb850c.jpg

 

IMG_7386.thumb.jpg.e7a75f5b2dd08e013dade9342fc77e97.jpg

 

Dessert was various pastries from the Lidl baking case.

 

On Monday, I got a taste for Chicken Parm sandwiches.  Family concurred.  Buttered, toasted rolls:

IMG_7409.thumb.jpg.e4b70631da1a5695b8e2ad89de3c7e15.jpg

 

Fried chicken paillards with mozzarella (the Parm was in the panko coating):

IMG_7410.jpg.5ae2873b64a35356facbed6572442344.jpg

 

IMG_7412.thumb.jpg.bd4fd76e71dfadd97a9e17f02d5be151.jpg

 

Served with an “Asian” salad kit and toasted cheese ravioli:

Last night's dinner. Smaller portions because although Moe's appetite has returned he isn't eating as much.

 

Made parmesan crusted halibut again for dinner last night. With just a few fries on the side.

I am wondering which brand of frozen vegetables you are using.  While I find the  peas that I buy are perfect the carrots are never flavourful and often have a very strange texture. 

I bought several bags of Green Giant peas and of mixed vegetables. Diced carrots tend to be, as you say, strange texture. They are tender, but are almost a bit rubbery?
The carrots in the post with the shanks may be misleading as I added fresh carrots.

Giving freeze vegetables a break today! 🤪 Single rib prime roasted for two!
Roasted carrots, cauliflower, Brussel sprouts, sugar snaps and mushrooms (latter 2 veg added when other veg were nearly done)
Made scalloped taters, which have been absent from my table for some time. I was at Sobeys the other day. Walking by the hot food, i saw scalloped taters and they looked lovely. I put 3 serving spoonfuls in a container, without looking at the price. The clerk sealed the container and weighed it for price. It was $12.60! I told her to keep it!
So I just had to make some myself tonight.

So... what did you do with the brill? I really hope it's not on those pizzas.

 

Also, turbot and sole are great! I love doing a turbotini for two 🥰

Your spread when inviting people for "sandwiches" is amazing! Also those chicken parm sandwiches are calling my name. My husband is not a fan of chicken, chicken breast in particular, but smothered with cheese and marinara and served on garlic toasted rolls will definitely sway him. Still want to try those ravioli but the premade ones that I find these days are all mini raviolis. I'll keep looking. I could make them, and I have, but I feel that the premade ones would hold up better in this instance as my homemade ones are fairly delicate.

Thank you!  I have made them from scratch before, but the ones at the local food co-op are very good and inexpensive, so sometimes I just buy a couple of them on a whim

Roasted a small chicken for supper. Thai lime leaves and butter were tucked under the skin. Roasted acorn squash and beets at the same time.
Stuffing was bread, celery, onion, poultry season, Italian sausage and dried cranberries and pumpkin seeds (the latter 2 from a salad kit). Extra stuffing was spooned into the roasted squash.
