Cod Cakes. A family favorite. Spicy horseradish cream. 

Last night's wings.

Looks great.  But why cook the cod before you cook the cakes?

@Shelby – going back to say Ronnie’s birthday week steak dinner could be Mr. Kim’s, too.  A steak is almost always his choice.  Mine is always crab of some kind.  And I could make a full meal off that gorgeous potato.  I’ve probably asked this before, but are the green beans your own that you can?  They look canned (my much preferred over frozen).  They also look Greek/middle eastern with the tomatoes.  The goose looks incredible, too!  And I would very much like a slice of that cake!

 

@shain – that loaf is lovely! 

 

@chefmd– your lump crab and cream dish is simple perfection.  Honestly, unimprovable. 

 

I, too, am now craving lasagna. 😁

 

Dinner last Friday was my contribution to the Wings Cook-off.  My offering was @Norm Matthews’ Korean-style wings:

Served with salad and fries:

Napa cabbage, hearts of palm, toasted almonds, fried rice noodles with ginger dressing.  Mr. Kim’s and Jessica’s with red bell peppers.

I didn’t cook a lick on Saturday.  We had lunch out and ordered a pizza and a salad for dinner.  We augmented it with some really good bread we got at a little neighborhood grocery near where we had lunch.

 

 

 

 

 

 

This ciabatta was from Antbear bakery a local place.  The grocery has a list up of all the local bakeries in the area that deliver to them and the schedule of which days they get what.  Great idea!  I wish that we lived closer.

We lost power Sunday night, so dinner ended up being corn nuts from nuts.com and some pretzels😉.

 

Monday night dinner was slow cooker carnitas with black beans and all the fixings – beef:

Jessica found this recipe and suggested it.  I would have never thought of doing this, but I’m really glad she did. It was incredibly easy and very good.  This only thing was we all agreed that the spices the spices (chili powder, cumin, paprika, garlic powder, and onion powder) could all have been doubled. 

  

Tortillas:

Pickled shallots, cheese, Napa, and salsa:

More salsa, sour cream, and guacamole:

Yellow bell peppers:

When am I going to learn that I can’t take pictures in my dining room🙄?

 

Black beans w/ salsa and taco seasoning:

Plated – without beef:

Sorry to be so tardy, Shelby. How were these prepared?

No problem!  Super easy.

 

Skillet with a bit of olive oil.  Salt and pepper.  Med. heat until leeks are browned on both sides--around 5 mins maybe....couple glugs of white wine.  Cook for about 20 mins until leeks are soft.  Drain wine.  Sprinkle with fresh parm and broil until cheese crisps up.

I'm hungry for tacos now.  All looks so good.  And I want your wings.

 

I'm glad you asked that :)

 

The green beans might be mine...but probably they are our friends that passed from Covid.  I'm really really going to miss them.  Their daughter came over Tuesday and I told her the following:

 

"On another note,  what the heck are we going to do without your mom's green beans?"

 

She laughed--we had been crying so it was good to laugh.....

 

Backstory:  We grew green beans for several years, but they never could compare with theirs, so we just gave up and started trading them their green beans for whatever they wanted from our garden.  She canned them and gave them to her family and they LOVED them.

 

We miss both of them very much.

Big hugs to you all.  One of the best ways I've found to memorialize loved ones is with food.  I try to call recipes by the names of the people who made them or gave them to me.  Among the 1700+ recipes on my webpage are many eponymous ones from family and friends, including many, many from eG, including @andiesenji, @Ann_T, @C. sapidus, @Darienne, @David Ross, @deensiebat, @Dejah, @Domestic Goddess, @Fat Guy, @gfweb, @Jaymes, @Chufi, @Marlene, @mgaretz, @Norm Matthews, @patti, @suzilightning and, of course, you, @Shelby.  Among others - I'm sure I've missed some.  Some of these folks are still active, some aren't and some are gone completely, but when I come across a recipe or make something, I remember them.  It is a good moment!

I love that you did this.

 

Food really makes people connect.

 

 

Thank you....thank you really isn't enough.

My seed did hot come up (garlic hive) now I have a craving. May try as a micro-green? So good with eggs.

I have yet to find anything that garlic chives aren't good with!

Lovely looking bitter melon at the store. Must have whenever I see them!

 Had Shanghai noodles on hand + black bean garlic bitter melon, topped with shrimp

Looks great (as usual).

 

Can you compare the level of bitterness of bitter melon to any other veg?  Say for example radicchio?  Never tried BM, but have always been interested (I like a little bitterness, but nothing overwhelming).
