Dinner 2021

Had a couple of lovely warm days for garden clean-up. Figured I wouldn't want to cook supper after.
A former international student of mine from Turkey opened a small eatery in town about 5 months ago. Good time to try out his cooking - The Shawarma Queen.
Lovely aromas when I went in to order then curbside pick up.

We shared a Lamb Kebab place and a Chicken Shawarma plate

Yesterday was 16C! It was a full day yard clean-up. In anticipation for need to cook supper, prepped some black bean garlic ribs in the morning. Cooked them in the Instant Pot for 30 minutes.

Sauteed green beans with ginger and garlic, sprinkled with a mix of toasted sesame seeds and ginger. Lots of jasmine rice was needed!

                                                                                       Then it snowed in the early morning!  High of 2C day.

On a Friday night, after too many video conferences, when noone wants to cook or even prep the table, „build your own Hot Dog“ on IKEA plastic ware is just about the right solution ...

Three (or four) tomato penne, with shallots,  asparagus, chives and Parmigiano.

Had 4 leftover shrimp from the night before. Put 2 on each plate and started pouring some of the leftover sauce (olive oil, garlic, sherry, paprika, lemon) (from the takeout container they were stored in in the fridge) over. And it was dropping into these nice droplets until those last few. I'm a pro!

Something I didn't expect though - the shrimp were almost tastier than the night before after sitting in their cooking juices for a day. Should've called them something fancy, like shrimp escabèche.

How do you make the honey lacquered duck breast?  Do you have one of the few ovens in a Chinese residence or was it picked up from the supermarket?

Supermarket.

 

I do have an oven. A broken oven, though. I decided to wait until I moved to replace it, but haven't got round to it yet.

Charlie has made several friends going to car meets with his 1993 Caddy Fleetwood and asked if he could have them over for BBQ this weekend.  They came today and I smoked a brisket, pork ribs. Also had hot dogs-not pictured- and several sides.

@Panaderia CanadienseSO good to see you :)  

 

@DanteTHAT is a pan of nachos that I'd happily scarf down.

 

@Norm MatthewsNice looking spread.  

 

Venison meatloaf, mashed potatoes and salad to use up the rest of the green bean salad.

After a very very crappy dental visit, brats ....mostly for Ronnie.  I nibbled on fries and drank a vat of wine.

Last night I needed to use up the rest of the pasta dough and rabbit ragu so I made some ricotta cheese in the IP and blanched some fresh spinach to make ravioli.

baked smashed apples

I am always amazed by the range of dishes that you make. I am also inspired by twists such as this “baked smashed apples concept”. I enjoy the taste of apple with pork but I’ve never been a fan of applesauce. This would be so much more to my taste. Thanks for sharing.

The first time we were in the south I learned that a side of cooked apples was common. Mostly they were bland and too soft, but once in a while they were cut in proper wedges and sautéed in butter until....well, until they were cooked right. Awfully good with ham. Also probably nice alongside green beans, perfectly cooked of course, or long-cooked southern style with bacon and simmered in ham broth.

 

It's clearly time to get out of bed and go down for breakfast. Waiting for me is press-pot coffee with chicory. Not waiting for me is warm apple pie, which is really sad.

The days are getting more pleasant. Today we spend the whole day outside - first on a tour through the nearby Odenwald forest, exploring the „barite gorge“ ...

Then enjoying a lazy afternoon on the lower terrace (interdispersed with some trampoline „exercises“).

Finally, in the late afternoon a BBQ. Veal neck, marinated with herbs and garlic, asparagus, burrata with tomato and pesto, ajvar, potato salad, zaziki ...

Other options included: sausage, cevapcici, grilled cheese and pork loin skewers. Herb butter bread and condiments on the side.
