Dry aged strip steak with sautéed red cabbage.  DH started to cut it before I took the picture.

That's called the "money shot". ;)

Cooked up a Paella for mum's 75th B'day out on the Kamado.

No sea food as some had allergies but mum and I scoffed down a dozen oysters and some prawns.  I would like to add I was successful with a slight crunchy/crispy bottom.

Popped a loaf in for a few minutes for some warmth and crunch.

Panko crusted tilapia, creamed spinach, garlic-herb “Right Rice” (atoning for last night’s carb laden dinner). Managed to hit the timing perfectly on the fish to get crispy brown topping while keeping the filet moist.

My first attempt at making lasagna with home-made noodles. Layers of cheese, sauce, peppers, onions, mushrooms, and a lemon juice/tahini sauce.

Vegan Black Metal Chef's lasagna recipe it where I first saw the idea. It's become a standard for my lasagnas since then no matter what kind- there's an interesting alchemy between it and tomato sauce that just works for me.

Me? Sweet and Sour tofu ball stir-fry and the same tofu balls skewered on rice. Super delicious. If you want to see the recipe, it's on my channel at 'Made By You and I" on YouTube.

Saturday dinner.  Berkshire pork w/ fried potatoes.

 

20220117_122712.thumb.jpg.1dc51b0f847a25b899bc897a090fdbc7.jpg

 

Cooked the pork chop sous-vide for 1 hour at 140f.  Browned in duck fat which was used to cook the potatoes.  This is really the only pork chop I'll eat - so good.

 

Sunday Dinner:

 

Chicken Provencal that I mentioned last weekend, needed specific olives that I had to order online:

Flavor is amazing.  I'm not a big thigh fan.. so the other 2 I ground up and we'll try this next weekend with chicken meatballs in this amazing sauce.  Possibly with polenta instead of rice (another suggested accompaniment)   This is out of the 15 year America's test Kitchen cookbook.

A few meals from this past week. Only cooking if I feel like it, otherwise, we are having simple meals like sandwiches and soup.

Baked bread last night. Dough was started 24 hours before and left out of the counter for a long slow fermentation.

^Gorgeous Ann. I'm thrilled you are up to cooking with some supervised help. Letting the dough hook on the mixer handling the heavy work and on-line ordering is getting more satisfying.  Nice that options exist even if shopping in person was your passion as mine used to be. 

I'm getting better produce straight from the warehouses. Or I suppose they call them transfer stations.
