Valentine's Day meal

 

Some lovely beef filets

It was decent outside so Ronnie grilled them.  Along with salad and lobster Mac and cheese

And some chocolates (that don't look near as pretty as the ones people make around here!)

@Duvel – your pides are things of beauty.  I wish I could find them somewhere.  I tried to make them once and wasn’t successful.  I’m also intrigued with doner turkey! 

 

@Dejah – love the look of your shrimp and grits.  I like that there don’t seem to be any peppers. 

 

@Shelby – I would LOVE to sit down to your turkey dinner.  The skin on that leg quarter is amazing!

 

@MaryIsobel – I’m really funny with textures, too.  No cream of wheat, cream of rice, Maypo, oatmeal, congee, etc.  But I really like both grits and polenta.  So, worth a try, I guess!

 

@CantCookStillTry – thank you so much for sharing your story and your meal with us.  I am unashamedly fond of canned spaghetti – I’ve never outgrown that.  And I love the stories that are attached to the foods we eat.  It is my favorite part of eG.  I’ve been spending a lot of time in the last few days on the “How we ate growing up” thread and am loving it. 

 

On Sunday we were supposed to have a gameday feast, but Jessica ended up pet sitting for whackaloons that basically expected her to be there 24/7 – for CATS🙄!  So, we are having that when she comes home today.  Mr. Kim and I snacked on cheese and crackers and cookies from coffee hour at church (I was one of the hostesses this morning) and the Chex mix I made:

 

Voila!  Dinner!😁

 

Last night I let Mr. Kim choose Valentine’s dinner - strip steaks, buttered corn, and @Marlene’s Crispy Smashed Potatoes.  I added béarnaise and we picked up dessert at Fresh Market and Kroger.  I did the steaks SV – 130F for 2 1/2 hours.  Mr. Kim seared them on the gas grill burner in an iron skillet:

They were perfectly cooked for us and very tender:

I also served a baguette - just because we needed a THIRD carb:

The desserts:

The bar cake and ricotta cheesecake were Fresh Market and the strawberries from Kroger.  And, as much as we want it to not be true, we just can’t get great strawberries in the middle of February in VA☹️.

Lightly blackened grouper tacos


You’d think by now I would know most of the popular preparations … 

 

I always wondered why people would actually point out that they “blackened” their food - besides literally everytime hearing Metallica’s “Blackened” in my head when I read this I was somewhat positive that it means “charred”. But when I read that even @liamsaunt seemingly blackens on purpose I decided to google it. Who knew* ? Another eGullet moment for me …

The first time my husband saw blackened halibut on a menu, he asked the waiter what that was. The waiter stammered "uh, they just kind of burn the spices on there." Hopefully he came up with a better explanation eventually. Someone at the table next to us overheard and when the waiter left, they explained that blackened is no more burnt than a well seared steak is, so my husband ordered it and it remains one of his favourite treatments for halibut.

When we were young peeps, we were traditionally allowed to pick out our birthday meals. I remember vividly choosing canned ravioli, Vienna sausage, (canned). And DintyMooreBeefStew. 🤢. Served on fine china. CaptianCrunch for breakfast. Siblings would always try and play cards for their favorites. "I won't beat you up if you get pop tarts". Blueberry, no icing. 

Good grief if I ever get the flu again. Horrid flu in my early thirties all I wanted was DintyMoore. Sent DH out for 6 cans. Smells like old dog balls. 

Thankfully these days a good miso soup works wonders like the day after my booster. 

My first and second vaccines were mild. But I ordered Rappa Scrapple from my hometown. 

We had rice and RG beans last night. Left over chicken drumsticks.

I think a large part of the population sees Paul Prudhomme smiling cherubic face when they read or hear "blackened fish" https://cooking.nytimes.com/recipes/11612-paul-prudhommes-blackened-redfish

On the odd occaision that my Dad was in charge of dinner for us kids, it was inevitably canned meatballs; dog food comes to mind... It's funny, he is in long term care now and complains endlessly about the food. I remind him that he used to eat canned meatballs, oh, and canned "corned beef!" Again, better suited to canines in my opinion, except for the extremely high sodium content.

Teppanyaki trio! On our first Valentine's Day, my wife and I went on a date to a chain teppanyaki place. It's become one of our traditions, but with COVID and a new baby at home, going out to eat wasn't on our menu this year. So I broke out my Blackstone flat top and we did teppanyaki at home.

I wish my eyes weren't so dead in this pic, but whatever. I was approximately 3 Wild Turkey 101 beverages in at this point, and was trying to flex Iron Chef style.

IIRC blackened redfish almost caused the decline of the species in the Gulf

It is mentioned in the article. So much trending pre social media!

Lovely menu and such a sweet back story. You are allowed to have dead eyes when you have a baby in the house!
