I was preparing some sides for dinner for tomorrow so Charlie went and picked up some Koran food from a restaurant he said was well known for fired chicken and a had just opened one here in Overland Park.  He got some wings that he said were fried then grilled. They were spicy-sweet.  A little sweet a LOT spicy.  I needed to eat some ice cream after.  He also got a dish with vegetables, fish cake and rice cake and some white turnip kimchi.  We already had the rest.

Any excuse for ice cream.

Past midnight I was hungry again for smash burgers.  This time I used the main burner on the stove.  Per Kenji's directions I heated the pan to 370C/700F.  Instantly the kitchen filled with smoke and the smoke alarm went off.  I'm sure my neighbors love me.

 

The resulting burger was a thin, thin patty charred outside and rare to medium rare within.  Unquestionably a better burger than last night when the center was well done.

 

The downside is I thought the pan was ruined.  Surprisingly it cleaned right up.  Demeyere is rising in my estimation.

Caribbean Beef Stew with Coconut Brown Basmati Rice - from Weight Watchers Cook Up Comfort cookbook. Need to try to flatten this Covid weight gain...again! 

This is a make again recipe. Used a blade steak from the freezer, marinated with Jerk Paste (called for jerk spice but none in the pantry), browned with onion & garlic, added canned diced tomato, beef broth, simmered for 50 minutes. Added cubed sweet potato and green beans and simmered another 10 minutes.

I have to make this.  Looks so good.  And I like that it is sweet potato and not the dreaded carrots.

VRBO  Cooking

 

Had King salmon sent to my VRBO ( Farm-2-Market )

 

This was the belly,  baked with dill and lemon zest/ pepper.  Had some pasta, as, not everyone liked fish

Steamed pork buns for dinner along with some fried rice.  All leftovers.

Pulled pork from the weekend taco's. Just add some Soy and Oyster sauce. Yum.

Comfort food dinner, assembled in 30 minutes thanks to the presence in the fridge of a Sam's Club rotissiere chicken, purchased yesterday but not used because I had also purchased cupcakes, and those were dinner. Sliced the breast and wrapped loosely in foil, then into the CSO at 350 on steam bake for 15 minutes while the potatoes boiled. Drippings from chicken scraped into a small saucepan with water and turkey gravy mix, simmered until thick and then held. Fresh sugar snaps dumped into boiling water when I took the potatoes up, and heated on medium low heat until I got the potatoes mashed (with butter, sour cream and half-and-half), then bumped up to high until then came back to a full boil, then snatched off the heat, drained and tossed with butter. Perfect level of crunchiness.

Total cost of the meal, which would have fed four had I thrown a couple more potatoes was way less than five bucks. I have one meal's worth of white meat and probably two of dark meat left, plus the carcass will go in the IP for stock whenever I can be moved to get up and throw it in there. 

 

I don't think that's too bad for a five-dollar rotissiere chicken.

Your salmon looks so moist and creamy.  My family is decamping to a rental house (not via VRBO though, we rent direct from the owner) in a couple of weeks too.  Driveable from home and very private as we are not vaccinated yet and need to keep our bubble going, but we all need the change of scenery!

 

Tonight, we had salmon tacos

Your fried rice reminded me that I had leftover rice and leftover smoked pork sausage in the fridge, so ... fried rice for supper! Thanks for the inspiration. 
 

I realize smoked sausage might not be a typical ingredient, but it’s what we had and I’d use it again.

Charlie asked if we could ask his cousins family over for dinner tonight when I told him I was going to smoke a pork shoulder.  The pork was about 5 lbs. and took 10 hours. I made some corn relish from Stevensons Apple Farm Restaurant cookbook that closed 15 years ago but once was a great place to eat.  I made a salad that the lady who gave it to me about 20 years ago said "even men love this salad" and she was right mostly.  I also made baked or roasted potatoes that are waffle cut and seasoned with butter, herbs and parm. cheese.

After last night I decided burgers smashed at 700F were too stimulating for someone of my demographic.  Burgers third night in a row but I reduced my expectations to 250C/482F.  Nothing wrong with the results but I made sure the meat was not overcooked.

 

Served with Blendtec potato leek soup.  Romaine and Momofuku ranch.

A friend sent me a box (5 lbs.) of organic California avocados - the Bacon avocado. This was one of the 2 or 3 suffering the indignities of our postal service (with priority mail still taking 6 days to get here), yet still worked for guac. Which we had with chips for dinner, along with...

Cream of Romanesco soup. Again, the Romanesco I had was past (for me) its prime to use as a distinct veg, but served its purpose admirably as a soup base. With leeks, homemade chicken stock and a little rice for creaminess.  (Okay, there was a little cream in there too).

 

The Green Dinner.

Ronnie was hungry for a big sandwich so I got a smoked turkey breast out of the freezer and SV'd it.

 

I'm going to have to find more watermelon radishes in the near future.  We are eating the pickled ones like crazy.
