Also, I guess there were 6 fries.  I outdid myself.


Oh dear! You may want to look at this

The oven fries actually look crispy... could you give more details?

 

Erm.....open bag, dump on sheet, bake?  🤣  They are Lamb Weston brand, and I think they are just fine when I do not feel like making fries from scratch.  My house is a construction zone right now, so I am trying to keep mess in the unaffected parts to a minimum.  Deep frying is probably not in the cards for the next couple of months.

 

Last night, spiced chopped chicken thighs with hummus, roasted sweet potatoes with sesame seeds, roasted beets, flatbread, and salad.

I still had a ball of dough left for pizza. But didn't really want another pizza last night.

So, I decided to make chicken souvlaki and use the dough to make a couple of bastardized 'Pita".
 
Matt had taken the dough out of the fridge for me, so when I got home from work the dough was ready to go.
I just had to season the chicken. Cut the breasts into cubes and rubbed with minced garlic, oregano, salt, pepper, olive oil and the juice of a lemon. Set aside for 15 minutes while I made a Tzatziki.
 
Divided the pizza dough into two and stretched out to form the pitas. Baked in the Ooni.
 
Threaded the chicken on to skewers and cooked on the grill.
 
Spread a little of Tzatziki on each pita, topped with a mixture of lettuce, arugula, tomatoes and red onion and feta cheese,
topped with the cubes of chicken and finished with more Tzatziki.

Tonight's dinner will be Korean Rice Bowl (bibimbap) from a recipe from America's Test Kitchen.

Something I've never tried before but the video makes it look fantastic.

According to ATK, this is a Korean staple such as our mac 'n cheese.

I wish I could post the recipe.

I hope it is OK to post this here since it started here.  I went in the kitchen around 6:15 this morning and by 7:30 all the pots and pans were either cleaned and put up or in the dishwasher, and Charlie loaded the food in his car and left.  I ended up going anyway.  It was not too far and I got there at about 11:00 while they were still setting up and there weren't a lot of people there yet.  Even the kids had customized bikes.  There is a middle school shop teacher that helps them.

Been away to the city where hubby had surgery. He stayed in the hospital for 3 days while I stayed in a boutique hotel along the river nearby. I was happy to have a lovely restaurant just a few steps away. Ordered  a couple of items and a Greek salad for lunch each day, and it did me for lunch and supper. Good to have the fridge and microwave. After hubby was discharged, we moved over to our daughter's house, and they cooked!
Finally got home after a week only to discover my oven went kaput. Luckily, I had meals planned that didn't need the oven!
Brought home BBQ duck, cheung fun, and ho fun, which made meal prep easy as I am still helping hubby navigate around the house due to his incision.

 

On the evening we got home from the city after the  2.5 hour drive: BBQ Duck over Cheung Fun with Pea Tips. Next evening was Spicy Shrimp, Ho Fun, and Gai Lan

Deconstructed Chicken Fajita and steamed green beans for another meal, then  Pork Chops with Mushroom Gravy was on the menu last night

Today, I had a bit more time free from "home care" duties, so I made Chicken, Shrimp, and Sausage Gumbo

Tagliatelle with vegetarian "Sunday sauce" from the new Half Baked Harvest cookbook.  Instead of meat, this recipe uses finely minced and caramelized mushrooms, and swaps vegetable stock for beef stock (I used mushroom stock).  I also swapped white wine for red wine since my sister had an open bottle of Italian white in the fridge.   We all really liked it, and it was a good use of the loads of mushrooms I got in my mushroom share on Friday.

Spanakopita cups. Mixed some up by adding blue cheese to some and chopped shrimps to some others. Both additions works well, but adding a whole shrimp on top was a bit much :P

Yogurt, tomato salsa, olives and ouzo.

I decided to venture into the topic of smoking and bought myself an entry level electric smoker. I was certain to sneak the purchase by the missus, but it’s difficult to hide a black monolith on the terrace that expels smoke at a visible rate for hours. She knows me so well: she deducted that 1) it’s probably another toy for cooking, 2) it probably didn’t cost much per se but 3) probably will lead to significant investments into more equipment and time in the foreseeable future. My wife 🥰

Anyway, first try with beech wood (German standard) and pork ribs. Flavor was good, both “dry” and sauced.

Needs a bit more tenderness and maybe a more complex and expensive setup 😜

@Duvel 

 

after thinking about i9t :

 

it might be possible that your

 

Smoker , hight be smoking at a temp

 

not favored by Ribb-ologists .

 

if there is a lowest setting . 

 

what might  be the temp in the middle of the

 

top 2/3'ds , 

 

you know 

 

thermodynamic wise ?

 

then work with that 

 

( for a while .... )

 

cheers.

Thanks - I also suspect the temperature. I can choose anywhere between ~40 oC and 135 oC. I was tending towards 107 oC (225 F) as suggested by Franklins BBQ book, but had to shorten the time a bit and did 115 oC. Next time more patience 🤗

Nice - I've snuck many purchases past my wife, but then again, they tend to be able to be hidden in a cabinet or on a shelf!

 

Is that the temp. the book recommends for ribs and/or brisket, because it seems pretty accurate?

 

And - any dry rub on the ribs, or were they smoked naked, as it were?
