And a Maibock, because I deserve it 

I thought at first that your spelling had gone to hell in a handbasket until I looked more closely both at the word and the beer. I read Malbec! Should have known better than to think you would serve wine with this!

This one, first entry. Invented (and named) after Einbeck, a small town about 50 km away from my hometown. A friends father held one stock of the company, that is still producing it to get an invitation for the annual shareholder meeting, where the beer was served ad libitum. A fun way to get wasted ...

this is a very tasty combo - white bean salad with artichoke and asparagus

 

IMG_1288.thumb.JPG.e222c232e970d34433ddb59a45cfd43e.JPG

for two with leftovers...

 

I do my beans from scratch - so it's 150 g dry cannelloni  = ~330 g soaked

(alt:  14 ounces canned, drained)

cooked & cooled

 

prep:  thinly slice 4-6 fresh radishes

prep:  2 bunches scallion/green onions using both white solid stem green parts (10-14 pieces)

prep:  drain ~14 ounce wet/8-9 ounces dry / 340 g canned quartered artichokes, drained

 

~500 g asparagus - cut off tips; cut 15 mm pieces of tender stalk part.

cook - 3 minute head start for stems into boiling water; add tips for additional 2 minutes

chill shock in ice water to stop the cooking.

 

put everything except beans in bowl

salt & pepper to taste

refrigerate 90 minutes

 

add beans in, drizzle with juice of 1 fresh lemon - no seeds

drizzle with good extra virgin olive oil

toss, check for seasoning, refrigerate 1 hour prior to service

 

garnish with chiffonade of fresh basil.

Thanks. For a very short period of time we were able to purchase a bock beer in the spring here in Canada but I’m guessing it didn’t catch on. I seem to recall it being being a Carlsberg offering. My husband and I were very sad when it disappeared.

We had our Rueben sandwiches today.

We look forward to that every year...our corned beef was so small that I'm going to have to make another one to have sandwiches!  Yours look sooooooo good.

Ours was too small, as well! Will definitely make it again. 
 

Tonight’s dinner was a huge clash of cultures! Tea leaf salad and a cheeseburger, anyone? 🤪

 

I had a tea leaf salad at a Burmese restaurant a few years ago and it was so delicious that I couldn’t forget it. Unfortunately, I’ve never had an opportunity to have one again. I recently discovered that you could buy kits online, and so I did. While it’s not as good as the one in my memory, it’s still very good. I think having had it only once before I wasn’t sure about proportions.

We had some ground beef that we needed to use immediately, hence, the odd pairing.

Bock beers have the alcohol to do a rapid wasting . . . (g)

 I am holding off on a long story about an even longer night, brutal WI farm winter overnight low and outdoor brewing a decoction mash intended as a light (« helles ») bock, a failed lauter screen....

 

-and a beer my wife ultimately named Hellundback Bock.

I reheated my attempt at @Katie Meadow's Faux spinach souffle.  About 10 minutes in the APO at 160C with 100 percent steam.  The steam made all the difference.  What had been dry if still enjoyable became something really great.

 

Next time I would leave out the cayenne.  I don't detect cayenne in real Stouffer's.  And I could be wrong but I don't think Stouffer's uses cheese.

Ok.  I must have this tea salad.  I've been googling.  I found kits on both Etsy and Amazon.

I bought mine on Etsy. The kits looked the same, so I looked for the best price. 
 

Next time I make it I’ll try to make sure I have some limes, fried garlic, and scallions (which I thought I had on hand). I chose the spicy and it had a nice kick to it.

The request was for lasagna. But we started with aperitivo and snacks...

Baccalà mantecato, topped with crumbs and heated up. Along with carciofi fritti. 

 

Two types of lasagna from I Sodi and asperges au beurre moussant. For dessert, torta di cioccolato.

We are trying to screen all of the Oscar nominated movies, and are quite close to seeing all of them.  Based on what was left, last night's (rather unfortunate) choice was Borat Subsequent Moviefilm.  I do not think it will be taking home any golden statues.

Thai Coconut Curry Lamb Shanks - one pot cooking = Instant Pot. Luckily, everything was ready and being consumed when the power went off! There was a pole fire not far from our section of the city. +500 customers affected. They estimated 3 hours for repairs, but they surprised us with their swiftness. Power was restored in 45 minutes. We enjoyed our supper with candlelight.

Naan was also present to sop up the plate (store bought frozen)

My sister is visiting. When I asked what she’d like to have for dinner she answered immediately “Matjes Haufrauenart mit Bratkartoffeln” (or soused herring “housewife style” with home fries). Little one heard Matjes and requested sushi with it - so we had both: Matjes (with sour cream, onion, pickles and apples) plus homefries and DIY temaki sushi ...

It was a creative evening, during which the little one created Bratkartoffel sushi 🤭

All enjoyed with a suprising beer find.
