Mmmmm, Moe.

I'm making "korean" chicken thighs. It's a mix of green onion, soya sauce, ginger, garlic, sesame oil, and honey, poured over the thighs, then baked. Turn the thighs over for the last 15 minutes to brown the skin. Very tasty, and I usually reduce the liquid after and use it as a sauce, served with rice.

It'll be asparagus on the side, I think. Plus sauteed mushrooms. ANd a green salad on the side but with tomatoes because all my tomatoes are now ripe.

I’m making shrimp-stuffed halibut fillets. I’ll probably make a sauce for them. The sauce will likely be some sort of a beurre blank or maybe piccata-esque. I was inspired by a tv show of a guy fishing in Florida.

Thanks for sharing it, I'll definitely be putting it in my regular winter rotation.

Roasted acorn squash, grilled cheese on sourdough, the worlds best blue cheese (apparently) and Karl Josef Piesporter Michelsberg riesling spätlese.

Surprisingly simple yet decadent.

Soz didn't see this, but it was all (thankfully) inhaled down them.

I can post a cautionary tale of the carrots that would not die: never prep root veg the night before. I still don't quite understand it. The carrots and parsnips needed to be roasted for 30 mins with just olive oil, salt and pepper then you add the honey mustard glaze for last 10 mins. I had them all chopped bitesize and covered in the olive oil the night before. The next day I roasted them for a total of ONE HOUR AND TWENTY MINUTES and the carrots were still hard as rock.

They had the glaze which I defo thought would soften them up, and in a last ditch attempt not to lose the flavour I steamed them for HALF AN HOUR. Still fucking chompy as fuck. I gave up the ghost and fucked them in the steaming water to stew the crap outta them another HALF HOUR thinking I'd do a mash, no joke STILL ROCK HARD!!!!!!!! Like wtf?

I eventually had to blitz them with the "sauteed" leeks which came out stringy and papery into a soup for a starter and ended up just steaming broccoli as the side.

I mean.............what the hell happpened there? All the veg was fresh.......????

Giniling Baboy - Filipino recipe of ground pork with potatoes, carrots, bell pepper, coconut milk, soy sauce, etc. It's pretty good. At least when the fiancé cooks it.

Too bad I missed the last few months here. Had some great meals in Hong Kong, Korea, and other places.

I think I'm going to make either a large lasagna (but I'd have to go buy noodles and ricotta and mozzarella) or a big pot of chilli (not anything a TExan would call chilli, of course) tonight. I have a pile of garden tomatoes that need to be used up before they shrivel or go too soft or both.

Chilli is more tempting because it's easier and faster, but I think Mr_S would like the lasagna more.

Hmmm. Just checked out lasagna recipes - I have kale and swiss chard in my freezer, from my garden this summer. The recipes all have spinach. Would the Swiss chard be an ok sub for that? It's "softer" than spinach - less texture. I think the kale would actually be a better sub, but I have a TON of chard to use up... never mind, I'll use the chard. EVen if it's not ideal.

I have converted to a non legit chili. The fiancé likes chili a lot, but demands it have beans and tomatoes. So I just do that now.

I also use ground beef. So it's pretty much blasphemous.

I find chard and spinach pretty interchangeable if you're using them cooked. I swap them back and forth in soups.

It reminds me of "chili" I had in Dublin, Ireland, once. It was like hamburger soup.

The place was called The Alamo.

Hah. I still spice it right. Onion, garlic, chili powder, paprika, cumin, black pepper, salt, a few actual chilies if I have any in house.

But... ground beef, tomatoes, and beans. It's not soupy, but it's not exactly Texas Red.

My veggie lasagna turned out pretty good. It's slightly liquid, but not too bad (I used a lot of tomato paste and a lot of veggies and I simmered the tomato sauce a long time). Could use a bit more zip - I used one green chile, should have added some crushed chiles too. Or something. But the oregano, cumin, and a dash of basil worked pretty well.

Good lord that is a lot of avocado on each taco. Are you sure they aren't avocado tacos with some carnitas on them? Also, I hope there is something to go with those chips.

Hooray! I saw a large plastic seasoning jar of "taco seasoning" turn up in the house recently. Not sure where it came from, but maybe one day soon I'll try to make gringo tacos at home.

This morning I made beef and broccoli for my (night shift person) dinner, and the fiancés breakfast.

Tonight for my (night shift person) breakfast and her dinner, we had McDonalds, because that's what she wanted (pregnancy craving, maybe).
