@MaryIsobelcongrats on your tortilla press.  If you have not made them before, I find it tricky to get the right amount of hydration so they peel off the plastic used while pressing them.  Somewhere here there is a thread on making your own and that’s where I found the perfect ratio.  300 grams Masa Hernia and 400 grams of warm water with a pinch of salt.  Mix and let sit for 20 min or so.  I then use about 35 grams dough per tortilla.

Good luck.  They are delicious.

Thank you. I had planned to search EGullet to hopefully save me same failed attemtps, so this is very helpful.

We cataloged the inside freezer today and uncovered a bunch of stuff.  I took some leftover BBQ brisket and pork (butt and rib meat) from Mr. Kim’s last judging, some beef stock, and vegetables, tomato paste and made a stew with added potatoes, red wine, and pearl onions.  Mr. Kim took notes, so we created a new dish.  Of course, we’ll never be able to truly recreate it because so much of the flavor came from mystery contestants’ BBQ entries!  But now we have something to do with the leftovers of his tastings that he brings home.  The pearl onions and meats:

With the wine and some tomato paste:

Served with some potato rolls:

More detail, please.   Gently sauteed?   Poached?   Serve warm or cool?    Any left for me?

Balls

 

Beef and pork meatballs with chilli, coriander seed, shallot, fresh breadcrumbs and egg. Rustic fresh tomato sauce with onion and rosemary. Served with penne rigata because that was what I had. Picture taken prior to adding parmigiano-reggiano and black pepper

Corned beef sandwiches last night.  Homemade sauerkraut.  Shishitos from Misfits....not as good as the ones from the garden, but they'll do :)

Heat 1/2 cup of olive oil (and maybe a schtickle of butter) with a tablespoon or two of nicely minced garlic. When garlic is golden, maybe add 1/4 cup white wine and let it cook off for a minute or two.  Add large, wild gulf shrimp (for this dish, I shell and devein them, and brine for a half hour) in one layer to bubbling cauldron. Turn over after 1 minute. Don't overcook the damn shrimp! And then throw a splash of sherry vinegar and a handful of chopped parsley atop. Serve hot right out of the cazuela. Lotsa baguette for dipping.

Grandma style pizza. I’ve had to move indoors for pizza since there’s a windchill of 12F tonight ❄️❄️. My Ooni is on hold for awhile. 

 

I would think that's perfect Ooni weather!

Windchill only matters if you are a bucket of water or a TV weather bunny.

Small appliance dinner. Beets in the instapot cooked earlier in the day and reheated and finished with butter and balsamic and some lovely Maldon salt flakes that my daughter gave me for Christmas. Enormous sweet potato cooked in the toaster oven and bacon wrapped pork tenderloin done in the airfryer. No complaints. I did try to wipe that beet spot off the plate before the photo, but it wasn't budging.

We have weather bunnies and a short bald guy called Hurricane Schwartz. If I watched the news, Schwartz would be my guy. https://www.today.com/video/beloved-philadelphia-meteorologist-glenn-hurricane-schwartz-has-the-forecast-110045765706
