@Kim Shook I still fondly remember Stouffer's restaurants.  The decision was between a grapefruit half and the iceberg lettuce.  I believe Stouffer's still offer the spinach soufflé but my local Shoprite -- damn them -- does not.

 

I have never been able to recreate the recipe. 

 

Spinach souffle = beloved by so many. Still around. In more recent years the vegetarian lasagna has a strong following.  https://www.stouffers.com/en/our-dishes/classics/for-one/spinach-souffle

Roasted acorn squash with butter and thyme. Ricotta flavored with mint, nutmeg and a bit of lemon zest.

Le tourin d'ail doux - creamy soup of roasted garlic, some onion, thickened with eggs and butter, no cream. Served with crisp croutons.

First time I've ever made larb and now I'm wondering why I waited so long.  So easy to make and delicious.

Thai Larb Lettuce Cups.JPG

Thai Larb Lettuce Cups with Lime.JPG

 

For the Dressing-

1/3 cup fresh lime juice

2 tbsp. fish sauce

2 tbsp. light brown sugar

1/2 tsp. Sriacha hot sauce substitute your favorite hot sauce

 

For the Larb-

1 1/2 lb. skinless, boneless chicken breast cut into small cubes

1/2 cup chopped shallots

2 tbsp. finely chopped lemongrass

2 tsp. finely chopped lime zest

1 pickled Thai bird chile, chopped substitute fresh red chiles

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 tsp. fish sauce

1/2 tsp. each salt and black pepper

3 tbsp. peanut or canola oil

small butter lettuce leaves substitute iceberg lettuce small inner leaves

1 tbsp. fried garlic for garnish

1/4 cup shredded green onions for garnish

1/4 cup shredded carrots for garnish

soy sauce on the side

fresh lime slices on the side

 

Make the dressing-

In a bowl combine the lime juice, fish sauce, brown sugar and Sriracha sauce and stir to combine. Set aside while you make the Larb.

 

Make the Larb and serve-

Add the chicken, shallots, lemongrass, lime zest, bird chile, garlic, fish sauce, salt and pepper and 1 tbsp. of the peanut oil to a food processor. Pulse the chicken until it's finely chopped.

Add the remaining 2 tbsp. of peanut oil to a skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add the chicken mixture and saute, breaking it up with a wooden spoon as it cooks. Cook until the chicken is done and starts to turn brown, about 8 minutes.

Place small lettuce cups on a serving plate. Spoon some chicken mixture on top of the lettuce. Garnish with fried garlic, green onions, carrots and drizzle with the dressing. Serve slices of lime and soy sauce on the side.

Yesterday night’s dinner as part of the extended Catalan weekend was supposed to feature a spit-roasted rabbit (now in the “Lunch 2021” thread), but ... the little one convinced my wife that the hamburguesa Arnau would be more fun. Luckily I made a test run the day before 😜

 

The Arnau hamburger consists of a buttered & toasted brioche, smeared with Kewpie and shielded by a single lettuce leaf, then a 150-200 g chuck patty, significant amounts of Raclette cheese, a heaped pile of roasted onions and Hunts BBQ sauce. Typically the inventor requests a pickled cucumber, but as my wife doesn’t like them and it is her weekend, we simply let the burger sit next to a jar and let the quantum entanglement between the burger & the pickles do the rest.

Allright ... now I was already feeling a bit embarrassed posting the burger here. But then I thought: no worries, if you are lucky it’s will be on the same page as some pointless discussions on MSG or some pictureless posts (that did not happen anyway, as @Anna Nknows all too well), but nooooo ...

 

Now the lousy burger is in line after @shain, @scamhi, @Paul Bacino and - gasp - @David Ross 😱

adding some toasted sticky rice powder to your dressing will make a huge difference.  Also easy to do...

So that's all the lucky foods I had in the house.  I hope the rest of you did your part to make luck happen ;) 

My lucky New Year's Day dinner was my new usual suspects...slow cooker corned beef with red rose potatoes, carrots and cabbage, all cooked or steamed using the corned beef broth from the slow cooker. A very good dinner to start out the New Year.

C'mon, 2021...let it be a (good) lucky years for us all! :wink:

Green soup (from the soup thread)...peas, celery tops, romaine leaves pureed with aromatics and potato to thicken.

Thanks for the reminder.  The best dish I had was at Lotus of Siam in Las Vegas and I still remember that rice powder.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

 

I had a little unplanned surgery and that affected cooking and dining for a bit, but I have a few dinners to post. 
 

Chicken and dumplings. I’m a southerner who didn’t grow up with this dish. My first time making and second time eating it.

Some Christmas dinner. Starting at the top and clockwise: roasted butternut squash, baked Mac n cheese, pot roast, baby limas, rice dressing, garlic knot in the center. Ham, not pictured.

Christmas dinner leftovers. Ham and mac n cheese.

More ham leftovers, used in fried rice.

The final use of the ham! Ham bone used in fifteen bean soup.

Hamburger salad. (Burger chopped prior to eating.)

No pictures of New Year’s dinner, but for good luck we had Hoppin John with smoked sausage, cabbage and tasso, cornbread.

Hand cut pasta in mustard sauce, with spinach, mushrooms, some onion, a touch of cream, garlic, lots of pepper. There is a lot of Dijon mustard in this pasta, but it is surprisingly mild, a bit acidic, a little pungent-spicy, and very creamy (since the mustard is a great emulsifier).

Served with a doppelbock.

A few 'cooked' rolls as requested by the adventurous little one.  (One of these days I'll locate some raw sushi grade but it's challenging up here.  One less thing to worry about and she doesn't know)
