What are you having for dinner? 4.0

I think that administrators can go in an edit the name of the person that started the thread to V M or Cindy to preserve this fun thread’s authorship, I do not need my name on it as its creator.  I think that Cindy started this a long time ago and V M kept it going with the next thread as the old one got filled-up.  V M, we miss your presence here lately.  I hope you are feeling and doing well.

Thanks go to our many frequent posters.  This thread’s posts often have great recipes and wonderful pictures.

May you have many times of happy and healthy meal planning and eating!   :)

Yesterday evening I made a pumpkin spice loaf.  Very moist. 
I just added a few ingredients, I did not make it from scratch.

I also ate a salad.  Did you have anything good to eat yesterday evening?

Also made a northern Indian veg curry with poppy and mustard seeds as a base, butternut squash (instead of bitter gourd , recipe said so) potato, carrot, aubergine and courgette . Also has a spice mix called Patch Poran , the mustard seeds make it quite warming!!

Lunch today. I’m at a Whirlpool appliance manufacturing facility. I visit a lot of different places in a given year, usually manufacturing facilities. Most offer nothing to eat and I go forage for whatever I can find in local shops and restaurants. Whirlpool has a really nice cafeteria with delicious food. Today was chicken Parmesan with noodles and a side of wild rice.

I am hungry already thinking about it. Maybe some mozzarella cheese too.

That's sadly a rarity.  Lots of pharma companies I visited had really lousy ones.  I have to say that the NNSA site in Kansas City has a great one, and Sherwin Williams R&D in Cleveland also has a really fantastic cafeteria.  The myriad of other places I spent time at either didn't have one or had one that made the lunch ladies at elementary school look like Julia Child.

We had two different counters, one with the slap it onto the plate style food, and one for a little more money with really good stuff.  We also had a sushi bar.  It seems that the wanted to keep us happy!

I tried making that Keto friendly Cauliflower pizza crust.  Added mozzerella, pepperoni, and a little sauce and well...

It's weird.  It looks, tastes, and even crunches just like normal pizza crust.  It's missing that carbolicious satisfaction.  It just wasn't filling.  Strangest feeling ever eating that.  You keep expecting to feel stuffed since it's pretty much exactly like normal pizza, but never do.  I'm not sure I'd try that again despite it being quite good.  I recommend you try it.  It's a strange feeling.  If you're on a diet and feel a must for pizza, it's worth a shot.   It's right on the money as far as taste goes.

I found that the cheese based crusts are a bit more filling, especially if you throw in more psyllium husk or ground flax seed.

I'm doing a pasta dish.  I guess you could call it Italian stir fry.

Brown up some Italian sausage, out of the casing or just buy it loose.  Hot or mild, whichever.

Dice 2 bell peppers, a medium red onion, one bunch of green onions, and 2 heads of garlic. Saute them in olive oil with sliced mushrooms.  Saute until the onions and peppers start to soften, but aren't mushy.  Throw in the sausage, and add four diced roma tomatoes, fresh basil, oregano, and anything else you'd like, salt to taste and cook until the tomatoes get soft.  Cover while you boil the pasta.

Boil up some paste of your liking (I like farfalle for this one) and toss it into the mess you just made in the other pan.  Mix/toss it thoroughly, toss it on a plate, and throw a bunch of shredded Parmesan cheese on top.

I will need to try this out.

When I do not have the veggies around or simply want to add seasoning, I use something like Mrs. Dash from the shake bottle, it adds ground spices and veggies as a seasoning.  There are different varieties of Mrs. Dash.  This does not substitute for eating any veggies of course but it makes some vegetable dishes even more tasty.

I didn’t know anyone outside of Cedar Rapids ate goulash. Growing up in a predominantly Czech and Slovak city, you could always find goulash being served. I’m not sure why the Czechs and Slovaks brought that dish with them since it didn’t actually originate from Czech and Slovak culture.

Goulash originates from Hungary, and since Hungary and Czechoslovakia were part of the Austrian - Hungarian Monarchy, it spread to all the other parts o the monarchy and also into all countries with German language.  Goulash was a very standard dish for us.  But what they call Goulash here, is mostly different from the original stuff.  It is made with ground beef in Minnesota and Wisconsin, I don't know about Iowa, but I bet it is the same. (germans, Czechs and Slovaks tended to settle close to each other because of the common history and culture)

The original stuff is done with stew type meat chunks (a little smaller than the typical stew chunks, and is made similar to a roast on the stove top, and paprika and other spices are added to the garvy.
There are two kinds of Goulash, the standard Hungarian style is made with beef or half beef and half pork, and the Szegedin style (https://www.daringgourmet.com/szegedin-goulash-szekely-gulyas/), which is made with pork.  They stress in this recipe to use German sauerkraut only.  You can get this stuff sometimes at Aldi and it comes in jars.
Szegedin Goulash is finger licking good!

Linde,

Chrissy
That originated in Poland, but because Poland was part of Prussia, it also spread to German speaking countries.  I think the Polish people also settled close to the Germans, because their food and culture is also overlapping.  It is very difficult to find clear food and culture borders in central western Europe, because people moved around and married, etc. At least half of the people in the German Ruhr Valley have Polish names, because Polish miners settled there.

My case also shows that people moved around, my mother was Dutch, my father was German, and this was nothing special, because in the borders were drawn different in the days of the kingdoms and fivedoms, 150 or so years ago!

And yes, I like Kielbasa, because I grew up with it.

Another thing which is puzzling for many Americans, specifically Americans of German heritage, the dance Polka did not originate in Germany but in Czechoslovakia, and simply became very popular in Germany and the emigrants brought it over to the US.
It was pretty much out of style when I grew up, so I never learned this dance!

The basic difference it seems, between “Americanized” Chop Suey and Chow Mein is that Chop Suey has rice and Chop Mein has noodles.

I was unimpressed with this evening’s taste of Chop Suey.

Now I have to venture out by myself and make sure that I am seen!

I hear than some lesbians do not care for trans-women who identify as lesbian.
I do not know if that means they are anti-trans or if are not necessary anti-trans but they do not like that the “former men” did not have to struggle with male privilege.  I am unsure.

I heard of the term TERF.

Have fun. Have a nice meal too!

I had a discussion with a TERF one day, and she threw all the stuff at me.   After I told her that I am XX karyotype and have hypogonadism, she changed her tune and all of a sudden I became acceptable, male upbringing or not!

I think is is plain hatred against anybody who is male or was male!

Thank you, my daughter will doll me out as much as possible, she is as excited for me as I am!

Yup.  The gyro plate is like an overstuffed gyro with extra meat, sauce, tomatoes, onions as compared to just buying a gyro.  The meat and bread may be rewarmed okay. That can be a lot to eat at one seating unless you are really hungry.

This should taste just like a Greek gyro plus tomatoes and more onions.

Tonight I had a beef shank steak that I have been dry aging in the fridge with a garlic salt and pepper crust for the last few days.  Typically it's a tough cut but it's super flavorful and after a few days of dry aging it's quite tender and extremely flavorful.  I sauteed some oyster mushrooms in the leavings from the steak while it was resting and it was quite a nice combination.

Tonight it's baked chicken and asparagus with some Syrian cheese and Moroccan olives.

Syrian cheese was a total impulse buy at the local Middle Eastern market.  It is very mild, and quite similar to Mexican queso fresco.  If you've never had that, imagine a really mild mozzarella that has a slightly crumbly texture.

I can't stand the canned black olives normally eaten here in the USA, but these wrinkly salt cured Moroccan ones are just wonderful.

Hi Folks,                        20 November 2019

Don't know yet. I no longer drive after sundown so I can't go to Mickey D's. Of course I don't go there when it's sunny either. I will say they are have the best "Tasteless" everything.

I do have a "Hungry Woman" frozen dinner in the freezer. Just a tad heavy on the salt.

Might try a pork flavored Raman noodle package ($0.28/pack from wally world) with fresh frozen vegetables tossed in to redeem the overall low quality of this food stuff. It does taste good, but what does it do to one's health? It's one redeeming quality: It's easy on the budget.

Maybe I'll call Jet Pizza and have them deliver a thin crust, extra sauce Pepperoni and Italian Sausage pizza with mozzarella cheese. Their pizza is good.

Now all I have to do is make up my mind which it will be.

Tune in tomorrow for the next episode, same Bat time, same Bat channel.

Best Always, Love

Christine

Ramen with frozen veggies?  Now you're sounding like a student!


Tonight I'm making a cross between regular Indian curry and butter chicken but I'm using pork instead and throwing in some zucchini.  Definitely not authentic but it should taste pretty good.  (UPDATE: it's super good, dangerously so)

Hi Folks,                    21 November 2019

It's tomorrow and now for that next episode, same Bat time, same Bat channel.

You'll have to excuse me, the Bat time slipped a bit. My fault.

Of the things I listed yesterday, I didn't have any of them; instead I had 4 frozen waffles heated in my super duper 4 slice British made toaster. To top off the waffles, I saturated them with genuine(?) maple syrup from Wally World.

This evening I had Pork Raman with a beaten egg mixed in right after the pot was removed from the electric flame. Dang, that was good. It's quick to fix, tastes great and is fairly healthy.... and cheap (about $0.80). Try it sometime.

Best Always, Love

Waffles are twice the cost of pancakes, 25cents per serving 2.98/16 versus 1.96/16=12 cents. About 180  calories,  More if you factor in the need for refrigeration.  I like the Hungry Jack buttermilk mix and preheat the pan to 350 to 400 degrees, measuring with an cheap IR thermometer so the first pancake is perfectly cooked.

The biggest savings for me is managing what I buy so I rarely waste stuff. I eat a lot of rice because it is easy to store.

Sichuan shredded pork with garlic sauce (Yu Xiang Rou Si, 鱼香肉丝)
Ingredients
For the meat
•   300g / 10oz pork fillet
•   2 teaspoons Shaoxing rice wine
•   2 teaspoons light soy sauce
•   3 teaspoons water
•   1 pinch salt
•   1 teaspoon corn starch / potato starch
For the vegetable
•   2 tablespoons Sichuan pickled chilli (See note 1 for substitute ideas)
•   1 teaspoon ginger
•   2 teaspoons garlic
•   60g / 0.5 cup pre-soaked wood ear (about 5g dried, see note 2)
•   60g / 0.5 cup bamboo shoots
•   40g / 0.5 cup carrot
•   1 stalk spring onion
For the sauce
•   1.5 tablespoons Shaoxing rice wine
•   1 tablespoon light soy sauce
•   0.5 tablespoon dark soy sauce
•   2 tablespoons black rice vinegar
•   2 tablespoons sugar
•   1.5 tablespoons corn starch
You also need
•   3 tablespoons cooking oil
Instructions
1.   Slice pork fillet then cut into long thin strips (see note 3). In a bowl, rub the pork (with your hand) with rice wine, soy sauce, salt and water until no more liquid can be seen. Add corn starch then mix well. Set aside.

4.   Heat up a wok (or a deep frying pan) over a high heat. Pour in oil, then stir in marinated pork. Transfer to a plate when all the strips become pale.
5.   Fry Sichuan pickled chilli, ginger and garlic in the remaining oil (add a bit more if necessary). Add wood ear, bamboo shoots and carrot. Stir fry for half a minute or so then add the pork. Cook a further half a minute.
6.   Pour in the sauce (stir well beforehand to avoid starch sitting at the bottom). When it becomes thick, turn off the heat then sprinkle spring onion over (see note 4).
Notes
1. Substitute for Sichuan pickled chilli: If you have trouble getting Sichuan pickled chilli, please feel free to use other type of pickled chilli available (e.g. Spanish ones) or simply use fresh chilli (choose the hotness level that suits your palate).
2. Wood ear & how to soak it: Wood ear (木耳, aka black fungus) is a type of edible fungus commonly used in Chinese cuisine. It’s black in colour and usually comes in dried form. Soak it for 10 minutes in plenty of hot water (it will expand a lot) before use.
3. Tips on cutting the pork: Wet your cleaver / knife with water when slicing to avoid sticking. It’s much easier to slice a more solid piece of meat, so if possible freeze the pork fillet for a couple of hours beforehand (time may vary depending on the size).
4. Serving suggestions: This dish is typically served with plain rice. However, it’s equally nice to stir it in a bowl of freshly cooked noodles.


If you want to try it, Amazon has most of the weird ingredients.  Worth the purchases.  Especially the sichuan chilis and rice wine.  I use those in other things.  Wood ear, I admit, doesn't have too many uses past this so I tend to use those japanese mushrooms sometimes.

Perhaps a few egg rolls or chicken breast strips.

Hi JudiBlueEyes,                       27 November 2019

Thanks for the post here. You jogged my brain and reminded me that yesterday evening I took a can of SPAM out of the freezer and placed in the reefer to thaw out so I could make a SLT on a toasted English Muffin for my Supper.

Thank you young lady.

Hi JudiBlueEyes,                    27 November 2019

I have never been a fan of Deviled Ham.

Change of plan for supper tonight. Frozen dinner prepped in the MWave. The Spam LT will be for tomorrow's lunch with the Love of my Life, Dena.

EDIT CORRECTION & UPDATE:

The Spam LT will have to wait until tomorrow 29 November 2019. Turkey today; who would have guessed.

I Hope everyone has a Very Happy Thanksgiving.

Thanks Judi.

Best Always, Love

Hi Folks,                    28 November 2019 Thanksgiving Day 2019

Cooked the Butterball Turkey breast I bought yesterday. I wish I had stuck to the original plan to have a Spam LT sandwich.

I have bought and cooked turkey breasts before and they were good. This thing I cooked today sucked; what is left will go down to the pasture for the Coyotes, if even they will eat it. I have my doubts, my Coyote friends are picky eaters. Guess I have fed them too well.

Three cheers for SPAM !!! It's so good it's almost impossible to mess it up.

The thing that is really bugging me now is the crummy after taste of that lousy turkey meat. I'm sure Butterball injected seasoning into the two breasts I bought. It sure has a powerful after taste. The second breast is going back to Wally World tomorrow, The meat looks like it might be Buzzard Road Kill; whatever it is, it is weird looking and tasting.

I am going to do the Spam LT sandwich shortly after I finish this Post, which is right now.

Best Always, Love

Hi Christine, 

Sorry to hear of the bad turkey.  Target had Butterball turkeys on sale, but even the smallest ones are too much meat for one small person. I passed.

I'll have Spam Hawaiian style, on top of steamed rice and  wrapped with seaweed. 
I'll also fry it and have it with a glaze of mustard and brown sugar.

I didn't take the turkey down to the pasture; I was afraid I'd tick off my Coyote friends so I fed it to the sink Alligator, which acted like it didn't enjoy having it crammed down its throat. I hope I can find my receipt so I can get my $20.00 back; $20.00 will buy me a lot more SPAM.

Marion, Please post your recipes for the SPAM Hawaiian and the glaze; they both sound good and I'd like to try them.

I did it, made my Spam, Lettuce, Tomato and Mayo sandwich on a toasted and buttered Thomas' English muffin. It was great, better than that lousy Butterball Turkey I bought at Wally World. I can assure Butterball I'll never buy another of their products.

Maybe I'll make having Spam for Thanksgiving my tradition.

Aside from going to Wally World tomorrow to get my money back, I'm going to call Butterball and complain to them.

Easy way to not get dry turkey is to just get one of those little roaster ovens.   Put the turkey in a roasting bag, set the temp for about 35 degrees lower than whatever it says (typically around 285 degrees) to cook it at and roast it until it's 165 degrees in the breast, and 180 in the thigh.  Give a ton of time.  Mine took 7 hours last night.   It'll be juicy and fall to pieces every single time.   No need for a knife even.  It was a Butterball.

Though I have to admit, that Spam sounds actually really good.  Might have to give that a shot soon.   I can't eat left overs night after night.

Hi Folks,                       29 November 2019

The problem with the turkey I bought was it was a breast and had been infused with who knows what in the way of spices. There was no mention of it being spiced up. I like turkey that smells like turkey when it's roasting in the oven. The breast I had didn't have a nice aroma.

As I said previously, the meat, after cooking, didn't look like anything I've ever seen on a cooked turkey. Looked like something I've seen before, just don't remember what that was. It came apart in flakes like some fish do after being cooked.

At any rate, I'll be more careful next time; I'll probably stick with SPAM.

Best Always, Love

A few years ago I was looking for the best way to roast a turkey since I was tired of having uneven cooked dinners.  I came across slow roasting and it is a winner.  Works for any weight, and probably other meats too.  I put the thawed turkey on a roasting grate in the pan, and add a few cups of liquid.  I roast for one hour at 450 degrees (F), then I cover tightly with aluminum wrap and turn the heat down to 175 degrees (F), cooking at this temp for one hour per pound.  A little extra time doesn't hurt.  Since it never goes beyond the temp you ultimately want it to cook to, it doesn't dry out.  And it falls off the bone.  This is foolproof as you don't have guess about the cooking time.   

Christine, I don't eat SPAM Lite preferring the original version although I can see the merits of the low sodium, low cal version.

Hi Chrissy,                        29 November 2019

The Wally World I went to had one selection of turkey breast; I bought two of them; it didn't say which version they were. I probably got the one created for April Fools Day. Today, I returned the one I didn't open and the empty wrapper from the one I attempted to roast. They refunded my $19.92 for the two; spent it on 4 cans of SPAM. When I got home I put the cans of SPAM in the freezer. It should last until I want SPAM again.

When I was preparing the SPAM yesterday to get it ready for the oven, I sliced all the SPAM in the can, thirteen slices if I remember correctly, and baked it like I do bacon. I used two slices on my sandwich last night and ate 4 like I do bacon. There are 7 cooked slices remaining in the freezer. Think I'll make two Spam Lettuce, Tomato and Mayo sandwiches on toasted English Muffins for supper tonight.

That Bitterball Turdkey left a bad taste I need to replace with the pleasant taste of SPAM.

I was born before WWII. I remember the rationing and all the things people had to do to survive. SPAM was a staple, I ate lots of it when I was a kid in them there days and liked it then and still like it now.

Hi Judi,

I like the original regular SPAM. That light stuff has other ingredients like chicken, road kill, etc. Bought it once and after the first bite threw it out.

Yes, freezing and refrigerating stuff really adds to the electric bill, so I try not to have too much in there.  I'll make an effort to make sure it is nearly empty once a year.  My electric bill for a small house is under $40 a month.  Oil heat so I don't use electricity for hot water.

Things keep well in the freezer. I've been thinking of freezing some money to see if it will keep its value better. Yeah, that'll work about as well as a Soup Sandwich.

Michelles Taco Bake

Ingredients :
1 lb Ground Beef
1 pkg Taco Seasoning
2/3 Cup Water
Chili Cheese Corn Chips (Fritos)- to taste
1 Can Campbell's Cheddar Cheese Soup
1/2 Cup Milk
8 to 12 oz Shredded Mozzarella as desired
How to make it :
Brown ground beef and prepare as taco meat according to the seasoning package (using water).
Pour enough fritos into a 9 x9 pan to cover the bottom.
Top with taco meat.
Combine soup and milk in a sauce pan and heat through until smooth.
Top taco meat with cheese sauce.
Top with cheese (8 oz to 12 oz depending on the level of cheesiness desired).Bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes until bubbly.

Tired after hours of moving snow around.

Sliced up hot dogs pan fried in a little bacon fat.
Ate them with steamed rice and lettuce.

That sounds good, for the survivors at least!

I have not found a frozen meatloaf meal at the grocery that I like, but I do often try meatloaf and French onion soup at restaurants when I see them on the menu.  Homemade meatloaf is generally very good, but I have always been a survivor.

Got a new Indian cookbook yesterday so thought I would try a recipe (it's  a Madir Jaffry curry's made easy   ) . So made a lamb one , its what is called in India a dum recipe and that means cooked in a sealed pot slowly . Originally done in a pot sealed with clay buried in hot ash, this one is started on the hob and then finished in the oven . It was lovely and the lamb was as soft as , finished of with a stuffed paratha .

I am still in Montana with my ToothFairy sweetie at her parents ranch/home finishing up celebrating the Thanksgiving holiday time and now we are all preparing for Christmas, cutting the tree from their property and all the decorating tasks on the tree and around the inside and outside of their home.

There are 8 of here for dinner tonight so it is an all hands on deck preparation task for dinner.   I am making the Beef Stroganoff, my ToothFairy is preparing the cooked broccoli and cauliflower with cheese sauce, and others are making a salad and setting the table, pouring water, etc.   For dessert my ToothFairy's mother made two Apple Pies.

Quite a collection of good cooks here in Montana.

HUGS,
Danielle

I did the whole counting calorie thing for a bit and it's really surprising how little chili dogs are.   I was using it as my low calorie treat for a bit.   You have to shop around for better buns than normal, but I got it down to like 150 calories per dog.  Damn, that was an awesome meal for weight loss.


Tonight for me was pot roast.  Needed to cook up the meat I bought on sale.

Because of being diabetic, I try to keep carbs as low as possible, and I eat my chili dogs without the bun, just the hot dog onto the plate and lots of chili over it.

Tonight I was served lemon pepper chicken, with potatoes fried together with peppers and onions.

Hi Folks,                            07 December 2019

I was going to post about the lavish supper I was planning and decided to can that idea and do something reasonable. So here goes:

Had two chicken fingers from two nights ago that I had frozen; took them out, nuked them on defrost for a couple minutes, placed them in the oven @ 300° for 10 min then turned the broiler on for about 5 min and they were done. Had "Sweet Baby Ray's" as my dipping sauce for the chicken, a bowl of Bush's Baked Beans with the same BBQ sauce and a bowl of Maruchan Pork Flavored Ramen, a glass of milk and a small bowl of Strawberry ice cream.

I'm Stuffed.

Best Always, Love

Christine

I keep my carbs low just to keep the weight coming down.  I'm close to 200 pounds and decidedly need to lose a lot more.   What's some of your favorites then?   I'm always on the hunt for low carb meals.  They always seem to be filling without being heavy in the calorie category.

I like meat, cheese, dairy, vegetables, fruits, seeds, and tofu BUT I certainly enjoy the carb laden foods, such as potatoes, rice, breads, etc.

I try hard to avoid food with added sugar.

Before my daughter moved in, and took over my kitchen, I lived mostly on veggies and fish (and once in a while I indulged on Air Fryer French Fries).  These days I eat what she puts in front of me (she is a very good cook), I just watch my carb intake.

Canned SPAM is good; it has to be, many members of our Armed Forces survived on it as did many folks in war ravaged Europe and Asia during and after WW II. During WW II rationing in the US, it was one of the few meats that were available to the average citizen. I remember eating a lot of it and have always loved it.

Not sure if I will even be hungry later! 

Chrissy


I ended up having two more medium slices of ham later yesterday.

Clint Eastwood's famous statement in Magnum Force is apropos.

We have a Five Guys here in our little country town of Southlake, TX; was there about 6 years ago. Found it to have over-priced, greasy and tasteless burgers. In-n-Out Burger has better burgers at 1/3 the price.

I am tempted to simply eat another slice tonight and maybe the other slice in a day or so.

That does not sound like a good meal, does it?

Because of the cake and cupcakes the last two days that have made their way down to my belly, I hope not in a way that expands it, I have to either exercise more or eat less!  I did skip lunch except for the desserts, but I doubt that made up enough calories as I usually eat a simple block of tofu.  So tonight I just ate some ham.

I receive some Ghirardelli peppermint chocolates, some Godiva chocolates, some Dove chocolates, and other items.  Those chocolates can be mailed to Christinej78, although I did eat one of those peppermint squares.  Very good, it was.

Hi Chrissy,                   20 December 2019

To tell you the truth, we both have a LOT of chocolate stored in our freezers.

Short story about chocolate and me:

Eleven years ago I found myself feeling great one minute and 10-15 min later I would feel like I was ready to fall off the cliff. I went to the doctor numerous times over a three year period. They ran every test imaginable and then some that were unimaginable; they did a Brain Scan and found nothing; that was encouraging. The only diagnosis I received was that I was in perfect health. No one could explain what was causing the strange feelings.

My office is connected to the kitchen on the west side and the living room on the south. My normal point of ingress and egress is the west facing door, through the kitchen. On my way through that door I have to pass the reefer on the north side.

One particular day, as I went through that door, I did what I had always been doing when I got to the reefer, I opened the door, reached for the top shelf and grabbed a handful of dark chocolate chunks. All of a sudden it dawned on me that I was eating an enormous quantity of chocolate every day. I had three large containers of various dark chocolate, large Hershey Special Dark 1/2 lb bar broken into chunks, Dark semi-sweet chocolate chips, and a container full of Hershey Dark Chocolate Kisses. I realized at that moment I was eating over 1 pound of chocolate each day, and had been for the previous three years.

I decided at that moment that I was destroying my health with this crazy and unhealthy obsession/habit, I grabbed all the containers containing chocolate and dumped them all in the sink-alligator. There was one unopened bag of chocolate chips in with all the other stuff. I took that bag and placed it in the bottom of the freezer so I'd have a reference point for when this took place. Three days after dumping the chocolate, I felt good and stayed that way.

Dena and I both love our chocolate; Dena has never done what I did. She eats it in moderation and has gotten me to do the same. I owe Her a lot, so far, she has saved my life three times. I Love You Dena Dear!

Best Always, Love

Christine

OposaCoon, Opossum stuffed inside a raccoon and baked at 426° for 4:26. The high temp is required to destroy the strange pathogens carried by these virulent creatures; the cooking process is more like a controlled Cremation.

One nice thing about having the oven up to 426 degrees is it stays warm for a couple days after and is clean as a whistle when done.

This is similar to a TurDuckIn, a chicken inside a duck inside a turkey. I hear they are really good but I'm going to stick with OposaCoon; definitely reduces the number of place setting needed for dinner.

Best Always, Love

Just started a ham bone soup in the slow cooker.  Bought a cooked spiral ham, 9 lbs at $1.50 a pound and sliced off most of the meat and stored that in the refrigerator. Put the bone in the slow cooker and added enough water to cover it. Already had an onion and a can of sweet potatoes, so went to the market last night and got the celery and carrots.  Saved the celery leaves for salads.  Should be ready for eating in about six hours.

Smoked salmon and Philly cream cheese on a toasted bagel.

I had a lunch special bacon hamburger and fries before heading over to Target on Thursday.  There isn't much of a lunch crowd where I live so there are good lunch discounts.  After a week Target increases the discount on leftover holiday merchandise from 30 to 70% off, so I bought a couple of summer sausage/cheese/cracker boxes.  ;D

Smoked salmon and Philly cream cheese on a toasted bagel.

I had a lunch special bacon hamburger and fries before heading over to Target on Thursday.  There isn't much of a lunch crowd where I live so there are good lunch discounts.  After a week Target increases the discount on leftover holiday merchandise from 30 to 70% off, so I bought a couple of summer sausage/cheese/cracker boxes.  ;D

 Yesterday finished off the turkey from last Sat roast, made a Jalfrezi (my friend took some home with her)  also made a soup from some "end of life" veg .ok had some tined toms, mushrooms ,carrots and shallots that needed using and found a soup recipe in my cooking for 1 or 2 book. It had a hand full of broken spaghetti in it as well , didn't have any pesto so chucked some dried herbs in and it was tasty. Slow cooker on today with 4 chicken thighs , home made chicken stock and the turkey stock with a veg and a chicken stock cube and chicken gravy granules topped of with 2 shallots 2 garlic cloves, carrots, potatoes, swede , parsnips and the water they sat in overnight. Should last a few days!!!

Tonight I decided on one of my custom recipes.    I'll list what's in it ands you can tell me if that sounds any good.   It's easily my favorite food of all time.


1 pound of chicken
1 pound of sausage
1 can water chestnuts
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can cream of chicken soup
8 oz mushrooms
1 package dry noodle soup
1 cup rice
half an onion diced
Red pepper
Garlic powder

It's pretty much all that stuff, cooked, chopped up and thrown together in a pan and baked


I always called it chicken stuff, but I've never really had a name for it.  Came up with it on accident as a teen throwing everything leftover I had together.  Slowly tuned it into that.  I've never seen another recipe get anywhere near to what that stuff is.

Fish pie, salmon, breaded cod with the coating removed cooked in milk , made a white sauce with the milk from the fish and added a pack of parsley sauce mix and some dried parsley . Wanted it thick as the packet mix is thin but ran out of milk so its solid!! Mash on top with a coating of the bread crumbs from the cod and topped of with cheese.Some broccoli and carrots as well should last 4 meals.

Well, 4th day in a row and actually still loving it. Added some kale with it (because everyone needs their greens) and a game changer, Harissa sauce. OMG, why was't this in our fridge already? (Okay I know the answer, because nobody in our house likes spicy food except me and I already have Siracha, Cholula, Frank's Redhot, numerous, indecipherable spicy-sauces of Aisian origin and of course the spicy Taco sauce! And everybody knows Dragons love tacos but hate spicy sauce so Daddy has to hide it!)
Dragons love Tacos (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ItaYeSJQX4)

Anyway, love the Harissa, lots of magical sweet spicy flavours to add to the already delicious Harira. One day we'll get to go to Morrocco and try their cuisine for ourselves.  One day ... (no Dragons invited  >:-) >:-))

I will have a pan fried, medium rare, ribeye steak for supper later.
This one looks like it has a lot of fat, so I will cut that out before eating.
But it is labeled prime, so it should have more of this marbling.

Doubt I can eat this all in one sitting.  Says it is 1 pound and 9 ounces.

I have been eating some delicious black grapes and they seem to be quite filling also.

Maybe I will just eat more of these grapes!

I ended up eating more grapes and decided to slice the big steak thinner and cut out the two chunks of fat.  Maybe I will cook it this evening and another soon.

I cut steaks into 6 oz portions.  Down to 4 oz if it expensive tenderloin.  I have a good eye for "cherry picking" the best cuts of steak so I often go to a market that sells a ton of steak so I can buy good cuts inexpensively.

Last night I had ribeye that I cut in half. I'l grill the other half tonight.

As I do not like to cook much, I doubt I would cut a steak to less than 8 ounces, unless this was after cooking because I got full.

I just got home a little bit ago, I had made Mac&Cheese this morning and put it in my refridgerator, so it is now heating up in my oven.....  Hot Dogs and Mac&Cheese is one of my go-to comfort meals.   I am also steaming some Brocollii .... 
.... then I will go sit in front of my fireplace and warm up, it was cold today and then late tonight it is dipping into the bitter sub-zero temperatures... perhaps minus -26 degrees overnight before morning arrives..

Curry "stew" of course you can as its all about the spices. Have some one pot hob to oven recipes, made oven baked chicken today (it marinades in yogurt and spices overnight) that will last me several nights as used 1 kilo of thighs and legs. To go with it dry veg curry and a red lentil and garlic dish that's good enough to eat on its own .
BTW curry just means gravy. Can pm a recipe if you want

Interesting.  This week I had a slice of pizza so bad, I did not eat the crust.  Just the cheese topping, and any sauce on it!  The crust looked as if it was half soaked in oil, so I skipped it other than for one bite from a drier looking area, and it was not good.  I decided to not make a fuss over it.

Plan is to have Sweet and Sour prawns with the Bok Choi (its looking a bit rough as its been in fridge for 2 weeks!!) and a beef in whole spices (that was to take up to my friends but GIC cancelled due to virus ,now phone interview) as defrosted the beef. that's OK as can refreeze for another day. Also to freeze is a chicken and leek pie filling before the leeks go off , will make that tomorrow.I always cook to much, found cutting down the recipe spoils the taste , being on my own its hard to judge portions when cooking as well.

I had leftover rice and "cowboy beans" (pinto beans with little bits of smoked brisket), with some hot sauce on top. That hit the spot - filling and decently healthy (very little brisket is in the beans, but you don't need a lot!).

had some tin toms left over so thought make a bolognas, bit of beef mince added the toms and put in dried oregano and basil, tom puree that had onion and garlic in, mushrooms and a sliced courgette  with a splash of Worcester sauce. Had to add another tin of toms , trouble is it made it watery. Tasted OK though , some left for tomorrow so will dish it out with a runcible spoon to make it thicker. Also made some samosa to take to work for lunch.

Last night was my 28th wedding anniversary. Back in December I bought a bone in beef rib roast to have on our anniversary (it was on sale- I paid less for a 6 pound roast than 3 pounds ground beef). Seasoned it with olive oil infused with garlic, salt, pepper, thyme and rosemary. We had this and baked potatoes and mushrooms. The roast was cooked to perfection.

Never would have guessed it in December that this would by the only option for an anniversary dinner. There was no meat for sale. Everything from tenderloin to cow tongue was sold out!

It may be better to simply stay at home and enjoy an at-home prepared meal.  Scallops perhaps?
Maybe meatloaf and potatoes?  Or a simple salad?

I know people these days like to slam potatoes as a food, but if you do a vegetarian meal, don't fry the potatoes and limit the butter, a potato is an excellent "main course."

Leftover kielbasa and sauerkraut that I had made last night. And wow, was it a good batch! Absolutely delicious. Leftovers just as good.

Plus I used up the rest of the half-steamed asparagus from last night, stir-fried it quickly in a very hot pan and then topped it off with percorino, salt and pepper and a little splash of lemon juice. Folks, it just doesn't get any better than asparagus in season with grated percorino on top. Soooo good.

Does it matter which way the onion bulb is oriented, when it is planted?

Do you remove any the skin? 

Must it be a fresh onion, or is one that has sprouted required?

Bucatini and meatballs. Homemade sauce with home-roasted tomatoes and homemade meatballs. Unfortunately the homemade meatballs were a little dry because my oven is so unpredictable. When I pulled the meatballs out, the oven thermometer I have read 40 degrees above the set temperature.  >:(

Oh well...I basted the meatballs in the sauce, which partially rescued them. And tbh...pasta and meatballs is always going to be pretty tasty.

I had spinach as a side. It was good.

Sorry to hear about the over-cooked meatballs. Maybe a non-contact thermometer will help, as you can watch the temperature on the surface of the oven to get an idea how things are going. 

I often cook a batch of cookies with my meals.  How fast they cook would also provide a clue.  The smell of freshly baked cookies.  ;)  I am resting a new batch of dough in the refrigerator right now.  ;D

I’m just very frustrated with my oven. Unfortunately I live in an apartment and can’t do much about it. I do have a hanging thermometer in the oven and I know the oven runs hot but how hot it runs can vary wildly. Today it was running 40-50 degrees hot, but some days it’s only 10-20 degrees hot.

Oh I definitely bake cookies by smell! When they get that just right smell, out they come.

Tried a new recipe I'll pass along.  No idea what this is called.  Got it from a friend who makes it for kids all the time and they rave about how good it was so I asked how to make it.  Made it for my GF's kids. 

Kielbasa sausage
Potatoes
2 cans of green beans
Milk
flour
stick of butter

Put one inch of water in a large saucepan

Cook the sausage in it.  put aside the sausage, keep the liquid.
Cook the potatoes in the liquid till soft, set aside, keep liquid.
Add a little milk, 1 stick of butter, and flour to make a sauce.
Add everything back in, including the green beans.

Simple, yet really hearty and the kids loved this stuff.   Little too fattening for me, but I can see why kids rave about it.

Here is a trick to try with the kids: combine any smoked pork product (like the kielbasa) with green beans, and they'll eat the green beans. Green beans love smoked and cured pork - just steam the two together for 15-20 minutes in a pot and let that salt and smokiness infuse the green beans. If they need added inducement, throw on some shredded cheese.

Simple, yet really hearty and the kids loved this stuff.   Little too fattening for me, but I can see why kids rave about it.


Sounds good!

I have been consuming a lot of my time this week with important things and people (no, no, I am not talking about consuming food, yet), so this evening I made some fresh sausage I bought; but, it was too salty.

I will need to toss that out and see what else I can come up with. Maybe a Pop tart.  Who knows... how about one of those buttermilk biscuits Danielle?

I am going try the second type of sausage I bought earlier this week.
This is Italian sausage.  I hope I do not get any too salty sausages with this package.

I almost never add salt to prepared food before tasting, as often there is too much salt or sodium for my preference in it as is.

It amazes me that many people add salt to watermelon or an ear of corn before tasting.

Unfortunately, since they aren't making pizzas as regularly throughout the day with fewer people in the store, the slice had been sitting around in a box for a while and even though I heated up when I brought it back home, it still wasn't up to its usual standards. Guess I'll have to wait until after the pandemic to buy slices again *sigh*.

The SPAM Musubi turned out great!  I fried SPAM slices, then added a a mixture of sugar and soy sauce and cooked it until the sugar began to caramelize. A strong sauce is required.  I used an acrylic mold to wrap the meat in slices of pressed steamed rice with an outer covering of roasted seaweed.  And for a little crunch I put bonito flakes and sesame seeds (Furikake) just underneath the SPAM.

A strong sauce is required.  I used an acrylic mold to wrap the meat in slices of pressed steamed rice with an outer covering of roasted seaweed.  And for a little crunch I put bonito flakes and sesame seeds (Furikake) just underneath the SPAM.

Great!

I only liked Spam once in my life, and that is when I went on a hiking trip as a kid, and one night we had spaghetti and Spam for dinner. We had had a long day of hiking, and I was so hungry that the Spam tasted like a crown roast of pork.

After the trip, I told my mom that I had eaten Spam on the trip and thought it was delicious. My mom was a good cook so she kind of gave me a :icon_confused: look. But she humored me and made spaghetti and spam for me. After eating it, I admitted that it didn't taste nearly as good as it had been on the trip and that I significantly preferred her Bolognese sauce. She has repeatedly teased me about this incident for decades ("Remember the time you said you liked Spam???") :P.

I sheepishly admit that I have never had Spam since then, but I'm always curious about whether I could recapture the taste bud magic from the hiking trip.

I love Caesar salads...but only when I make them! Most restaurants mess it up with less-than-stellar ingredients, mediocre dressing and overdressed salads. And the anchovies are essential - not optional IMO!

Hi Sarah,

I'm sure it helped that after that long hike your body needed to replenish salt.

SPAM Musubi is very popular in Hawaii.  Next time I'm planning to season it with brown sugar, Tamari, and Mirin.
Tamari is gluten free, 100% soy.

Cheese burgers with cheese buns, had to slice the thick burgers in 1/2 as they were well crispy on out side and still raw in middle. Cooking them on rib griddle pan so cooked middle and then put slice of cheese in ,put back together and a bit more cheese on top. Toasted buns on gridle as well. Small salad.

This was so good last time, we’re doing it again.

As mentioned on the dumpling thread...a little soup Asian-fusion style:

Ramen broth, with spicy Korean-style dumplings, julienne scallions, and a touch of soy sauce and sambal. Yum - perfect level of spice and taste! Total umami bomb.

Homemade Thai basil fried rice with shrimp. I used fresh Thai basil from the store and it was pretty good.

But basil fried rice is sooooo much better when you use basil fresh picked from the garden - that one upgrade completely changes the dish. Unfortunately, my Thai basil plants aren't quite there yet. They need a couple more weeks before harvesting can begin. Then, watch out - flavor bomb inbound.

Hi Sarah,

Great to hear about the perfectly cooked scallops!

I had grilled flank steak.  The weather is great for grilling on the BBQ.

Tomorrow I plan to try my version of ANZAC biscuits using cane sugar, coconut, oatmeal, and coconut oil as the main  ingredients.  I have no idea why folks don't suggest using cane sugar instead of golden syrup, as golden syrup is made from pure cane syrup.

The best part of owning a house is being able to  be a  highly valued member of the community. 
Even if they don't know my name they know that I grow the most gorgeous flowers in the town!
Several neighbors bought their home so they could live next to mine!

It is quite affordable as I can fix all sort of stuff on my own, though I leave the heating system to the professionals.

Tuna salad on a salad, with beautiful fresh lettuce, tomatoes and green onions from the farm stand - the lettuce was particularly good. Overall, pretty good meal...would have been better with the awesome Spanish/Portuguese canned tuna. But that is a rare treat, not an everyday meal.

Thin sliced chicken breast breaded in Panko and fried in bacon grease.  Ponzu sauce for some acidity (lime).
"ANZAC" cookies made with creamed butter.  Cane and brown sugar with less baking soda this time to get rid of the metallic taste.

Homemade Asian peanut noodle salad with chicken. I used peanut butter as a base for the dressing, and I think I should have gone with peanut oil instead.

Did this again with leftover chicken and dressing...it was much better with the addition of sambal and lots of fresh cilantro, though I think sriracha would have been better. I chilled the ramen after I cooked it, which was smart. The peanut butter base of the dressing was still too dominant, but I had to use up the leftovers. Will definitely use peanut oil next time...and more vinegar.

Can't learn to cook without some missteps along the way.  :)

Dear Devlyn:
A good (and tasty) thing you can do with all of your very prolific and extra Zucchini is to make
           Sweet Zucchini Relish
   https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/172346/sweet-zucchini-relish/

Frankly I like it much better than pickle relish on my grilled burgers and dogs.
I usually make enough and "can" it so I can enjoy it all winter.

Today is board game day and pot luck at a friend’s house in San Diego.

We’re playing among other games Hellboy: the board game, the Luchador scenario. We are stuck in a post WWII time rift in which all of our characters are wrestlers fighting the big bad evil trying to save the world from the ring.

So with the awesome Jack Black movie Nacho Libre playing in the background, we’ll have a Caesar salad, corn on the cob in honor of Jack’s sidekick Steven, cheese enchiladas, pork and beef tamales, chips with homemade salsa and guacamole, cheese plate, an assortment of wines, cervezas, and cocktails, plus some assorted unknowns goodies.

Cheering and wildly yelling while pile-driving your opponent is highly encouraged. Tag team rules in effect. As will be disqualification rules, so no biting, gouging, or elbows to the neck, but jumping from the ladder and flying leg kicks are definitely ok. And yes I will be wearing my Eddie Guerrero mask. 👺 💪🍻

Yeah, we figure 90 seconds with two 120° turns at 30 second intervals should be perfect.

Temperature, you say? It runs at 500°C, or 932°F. The cheese was already at a rolling boil on the one minute pizza.

I have cookware envy!!!!

I saw a video a few weeks ago where J Kenji Lopez-Alt did a bake-off between the Ooni and the Roccbox. Both pizzas looked pretty darn good to me!

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=WDK762aVaMI

Alas, I live in an apartment and cannot use 900 degree ovens on my patio. But one day I hope that I will have a backyard and when I do, I intend to get a Big Green Egg or some other Kamodo-type grill on which I can make pizzas as well as other delicious things. The Ooni looks so fun but I don’t think I can justify such a specialized item...or can I?  >:-)

(https://i.imgur.com/Aa3HCg7t.jpg)(https://i.imgur.com/1nqeyp6t.jpg)Spaghetti with meat sauce for one in the Summer.

Cook 2oz of spaghetti in water seasoned with salt for 8minutes in lightly boiling water.  I use about 1inch of water in a 1 quart Pyrex dish.  Drain water of spaghetti in a colander. No need to use more water.

Brown 3oz of hamburger and 1oz of spicy Italian sausage in a small skillet.  Be careful not to burn the meat as small skillet gets very hot if you aren't careful. When the pink is gone, spoon away excess grease . Turn off heat and add pasta sauce and Parmesan cheese.  When the sauce is at the desired thickness, remove from stove and use it to top the pasta. Enjoy! 

No leftovers and minimal heating of the kitchen when the weather is hot. Splurge on good pasta sauce if you can afford it. Pasta sauce constantly goes on sale.  Stock up on the good stuff.  It is better from a food safety standpoint to cook small quantities to avoid having food constantly passing through the "danger zone" of 40F to 140F.  I keep the meat in the freezer until a day or two before I need it.  Then it goes into the refrigerator.

I'll probably have some grapes for dessert in an hour or two.

Megan gets credit for the pizza, I set the oven up and tended the fire. It runs on pellets, so tending means keeping the hopper topped up once it's lit.

Dear Sarah:
Yes, what my tooth fairy and I had for our dinner was indeed Atlantic Lobster, Maine Lobster to be precise...  the Pacific Lobster is not technically a "true" Lobster at all... much smaller and no claws.

We went to dinner in Fairbanks to a restaurant that flies in Maine Live Lobster.... worth the price but we can't afford that pleasure very often.

@Devlyn,

Chrissy

We're feeling pretty confident. Megan is getting pretty good handling the dough and toppings, and the settings for this oven and the type of pizza it makes are "full tilt".  :laugh:

We're currently turning the pizza a quarter turn or so every 20 seconds, and taking it out at around 70 to 90 seconds, depending on the pie, the wind, luck, etc.  ;D

Devlyn:

You are killing me with alll the mouth-watering pizza pictures So jealous! So hungry!

Tanks! Tonight's pizzas were cooked with apple wood pellets following a load of mixed hardwood pellets to warm it up. Even though it was a couple hundred £ investment, we're seeing that the oven is going to save us money in the long run.

@Devlyn,

I find it amazing that a pizza can be properly cooked in 90 or less than 90 seconds. 
I am surprised that the pizza turning that should cause heat loss still has the total cooking time pretty low.

Chicken bulgogi. It was ok, but needed more zing...more ginger and maybe a bit of gochujang (which I was out of). Also, I need to break out the wok next time or I need to really get my cast iron pan super hot. My pan was just never got hot enough. I might try broiling as well.

Hi Sarah,

I keep ginger in the freezer and microplane some off when I need it.  Then I put the frozen ginger back in the freezer.
No need to defrost it before microplaning.  I'll also freeze onion that I intend to caramelize.

If you are cooking for one or two consider buying tiny skillets that are just big enough for the food you want to cook. The smaller the pan the hotter it will get.

Yeah - I agree on that pan trick. Good idea.

I tried a bit of the leftover chicken before going to bed. Tasted better. Could be pretty good by tomorrow.

My 12 year old made grilled porkchops with a bourbon and molasses glaze, Greenbeans sauteed in olive oil, garlic and seasoning and mashed potatoes. It was very strange when I realized my way out of the liquor store I had bought some Jack at my 12 year olds request. When she was done measuring and mixing the ingredients for the glaze, she asked me if this was going to taste good because all the ingredients smelled horrible. I told her yes and she continued. Once the glaze began to cook down, she realized it was going to be good. And it was.

Danielle,

It made for a really fun prep because they didn't have a recipe and just kept throwing whatever they wanted in!  The pineapple and mango added a nice sweet fruitiness that worked well with everything else, and everyone had a different dressing with it.  My oldest had a balsamic vinaigrette, my youngest didn't think it needed dressing at all.  I doubled down on the sweetness with a dash of Catalina!

The Pasty or Pasties (similarly pronounced like nasty) is basically an Cornwall, United Kingdom invention....  handheld potato and meat pie.

Chrissy


I have had many pierogis, the quality of which has varied a lot. I'd say the challenges with pierogis are: (1) making sure that the pierogi isn't too doughy, (2) getting the meat seasoning right (some regional versions of pierogis have a seasoning mix I didn't like), and (3) for me personally, making sure that the final pierogi is crisp, not mushy or oily. I think I tried making pierogis once...mine weren't successful and it's actually really challenging to make them proficiently.

I want to try a Pierogi with ground meat again.  It was very good.

Had some near Chicago a few years back.


Anyone here try a Pierogi?

No pierogis, but I think I'll make some homemade Chicago-style pizza this weekend!

I have to ask- did you make this like a burger with fry-bread as the bun, or more like an Empanada?

Caela
Title: Re: What are you having for dinner? 4.0
Post by: Maid Marion on September 11, 2020, 12:43:56 pm
I had them separately.  The yeast dough was sweetened with sugar, much like you would have at a fair or festive event.  It had lots of rise in the hot coconut oil.  ;D
Lots of carb calories from just the fried dough, so I didn't need more from a hamburger bun or bread coating.
How to eat fattening food without getting fat.  :D

I ought to make some Empanadas.
