White Miso Ginger Dumpling Veg Soup
I've never had lemongrass Rob.
Beautiful meals as always Lynda.
I felt like a lemon, wine and chicken dinner. I looked thru my binder and Brad (Moonwolf) recipe jumped out at me. I haven't made it for a few years and it was as good as ever. I roasted the potatoes in the same lemon and garlic marinade.
There's not much reason to go looking on the internet when we have great cooks and recipes right here. I love this group so much.
Sleevendog, that cuban sandwich looks delicious.
Apple Peach Pie. Baked yesterday morning.
I don't usually do combination pies, but I had some peaches that were perfectly ripe, but not enough for a pure peach pie................
.............so Apple Peach it is.
It was suppose to be last night's dessert, but ended up being dinner instead.
Served with whipped cream.
I also slow roasted a capicola pork roast yesterday for dinner.
But we never had it because we picked up some take out for a late lunch while we were in town.
So this morning I sliced a little of the roast and made gravy from the drippings (nothing is better than pork gravy) and made Moe a hot pork sandwich for breakfast.
This should keep him going until I get home from work.
Such fantastic meals everyone but of course I now have to make Prawn Etouffee. I realise it is cooked to individual taste but traditionally is it very spicey or mild? Best wishes for your now past anniversary Lynda.
Some recent dinners have been
Burger and sweet potato rounds.
Pork spare ribs cooked in a bought Ray’s BBQ sauce. I crisped up the crackling while the meat was resting. I know I know it looks burnt. Although plain BBQ is very common here, the whole sauce or rub is quite new to me and I’m not familiar with it nor is hubby although he cooks a good steak.

Installing St. Augustine sod in Los Angeles area in Sept/Oct?
If at first you don’t succeed etc... Hubby BBQ’d pork rashers for lunch and we had
them with the Sweet Baby Ray’s Hickory sauce as a dipping sauce and a coriander salad with sriracha dressing. We both liked this.
I promised Moe an Antipasto platter for dinner last night.
This dinner didn't take the long to make. Most of the time was just marinating the vegetables and grilling them. We were eating within an hour after I walked in the door from work.
Grilled zucchini, peppers and eggplant.
Melon and prosciutto. Olives.
Homemade baguette with Borgonzola cheese
a couple of different Italian salamis.
Moe's dinner Thursday night.
I don't care for scallops but he loves them.
Seared Hokkaido Scallops served in a garlic cream sauce with lemon over spaghetti.
Neely your ribs are to die-for! Not burned looking at all.
I like bbq sauce brushed on things at the tail-end and then broiled, browned, etc. Not simmered in bbq sauce.
Wonderful meals, Tibeault as always. Moe is a lucky guy, as we all know.
Sleeve your DH's pasta meal looks great. And your cuban prompted me to take out some cooked pork from the freezer to make it!
All week we've had rain and cool temps and I've been looking forward to making soup. Today's the day. Lots of vegetables, kale from the landlord's garden, black beans, tomatoes, cooked roast beef chopped up. No potatoes.
Southwestern-style seasonings....ground coriander, ground chipotle peppers, my all-purpose seasonings, smoked paprika.
I've got my beef simmering for tonight's dinner.
Country pork ribs with an Asian hoisin-honey sauce
Now they look delicious Rob
Wow Rob! How did you do them?
Marinated in lemongrass, birdseye chili, green onions, sugar, fish sauce and a bit of oil. Baked at high heat for a bit, then turned down. When I turned out down, I hit it with the sauce from this recipe (added five spice and garlic)
So much good stuff, I don't know where to begin. Neely and Rob's ribs are both making me crave ribs. Ann's antipasto platter would be gobbled up by my 12 year old son. Baguette and salami with olive oil are his favorite. For me, it is those homemade bagels. I keep saying I am going to try to make them, but feels like it may be above my skill set.
We have had a fish intensive week. DH went to Costco to pick up some beef, but didn't like the price or quality, so came home with a beautiful piece of ahi to pan sear, some whole chickens and our usual lamb. No sooner than he arrived home and started preparing the ahi, and I saw an email that my fish market had local bluefin at half what we had paid for it last weekend. It was so good, we had to have it again. We didn't have time to drive down, so used their delivery service, which was free next day delivery with a $40 order. We also ordered some sea bass which we will have next week. Not sure what I should do with it.
Seared Ahi with jasmine rice and peppers. DH served up and put way too much on my plate, but was good for leftovers the next day.
Sushi again, just Bluefin this time. Wine is our pomegranate.
Lamb, hummus and pita
Roast chicken, carrots and yukon gold potatoes.
You can find it in the produce department here. Podunk Nashville.
DH went shellfishing today and dug 25 lbs. of quahogs - our Aussies licked the muck off of his legs!
Then we spent the afternoon making "Stuffies" - had some for supper with some chowder and vacuum sealed the rest for the winter (last of our garden harvest on the counter).
would you mind sharing how you cooked that chocolate chip cookie in cast iron pan please.
Of course. I used this recipe https://www.twopeasandtheirpod.com/skillet-chocolate-chip-cookie/?fbclid=IwAR0jThTy7_ZCmLWaQkx7QojxdutScodZ8bP44M9TOLkU5oFgC7vGYIHRAe0 and it was a keeper. I sprayed my pan with olive oil spray and it came out very easily.
Apple pie is what's for dinner. Made another batch of 8 pints of Annie's Salsa, an apple pie and apple butter in the crockpot. DH will have his pie with maple walnut ice cream and I will have mine with a slice or two of old cheddar. I took soup and buns out of the freezer but apple pie will do the trick tonight.
Wow, what a pie!
Nekotish, Your pie looked familiar. Saw it on eGullet. Beautiful pie.
A few of this weeks dinners.
Last night's dinner. Cioppino with Halibut, Spot Prawns and Mussels. I wanted to add clams too but the seafood shop was out of them. So added extra mussels. -
Monday's dinner. Moe requested a roast beef dinner with Yorkshire pudding.
Halibut Crusted Parmesan. This has been a favourite recipe for years . Shared by Hoopysmom back in 2006 here on the Cooking Forum.
Beautiful Aussies, Seagrass!
Three picture perfect meals, Ann T! I especially like the roast beef, as it reminded me of family meals with my grandparents in the UK.
I had a busy work week, so not too much cooking. I did make sourdough ciabatta for the first time and they came out great, a hit with the whole family. I used all bread flour and didn't mill my own. Next time I am going to try and mix in some whole grain milled flour and see if I can make a healthier version.
The other night I made chicken enchiladas suizas. I SVd chicken breast, and made the sauce by blending roasted tomatillos, onion, jalapenos and garlic. I rolled the corn tortillas with chicken and jack cheese, then smothered in sauce, followed by cream sauce (half crema, half heavy cream) and more jack cheese and baked for a half hour. It was served with sour cream and fresh cilantro. It was delicious, but not a pretty plate.
I ended up using store bought white corn tortillas, as my attempt to make my own from store bought masa was a fail. They didn't taste good and they fell apart in the pan.
Quick and easy, needs a veggie, but I'm tired... jasdip "rub", in this case, grilled cod. Over rice.
Robin, that looks fabulous!!
Lynda, I don't like the taste of corn tortillas at all. Does that make me weird? :-)
Thibeaultstable; I'm adoptable! I'm house-trained too.
Tonight's meal was chicken legs and drumsticks marinated in a soy sauce, honey and maple syrup, sesame oil, garlic powder and onion powder, then air fried. Served with rice and asparagus.
Cioppino is gorgeous. On a holiday menu planned but too much right now...busy.
Keeping healthy meals and lunches flowing in rotation is my focus. Rotation-rotation. One meal feeds the next, yada. Not left-overs. Planned-overs.
Salad bowls, pesto pasta, miso soup, shredded greens...
Shrimp salmon over zuccini corn cakes. (still getting zukes in the warm temps)
Last night mini steaks and being the 'VP' of the 'fall-apart-club'---smashed/crashed potatoes fell apart...potato heap but still good. Hero Oaxacan black beans-n-rice so good. Meant for lunches but so good. (i do not always pile up sides on the plate). Best in their own bowl.
I've been working on holiday gifting spice rubs. Fun. Narrowing down to three.
Jasdip, Not at all! I prefer flour tortillas, but feel like corn are healthier. Mine ended up in the trash, they were that bad.
Macadamia nut crusted sea bass with thyme lemon burre blanc sauce over saffron basmati with asparagus. This was good and really quick to pull together.
This was a hazelnut skillet brownie made with freshly milled rye flour. It was a hit, we liked it warm with with vanilla ice cream.
Smoked tri tip with roasted garlic mashed potato and asparagus. I got my DH a "Meater Block" for our anniversary and this was our first time using it. It was really easy to use, and when it was time to take it out of the smoker both of our phones notified us.
OK wading in with a not-too-fancy dinner, pragmatically using what we are getting out of the garden. End-of-season tomatoes, potatoes I pulled out yesterday (using the tiny ones that will not survive long in storage) roasted with rosemary and garlic, also from the garden; two leeks sauteed in thyme, mushrooms, more garlic (really can one ever have too much) and finished with cream and gruyere in the oven. Hunk of salmon to go with.
I stand in awe of all the incredible meals on this thread. This is what I can manage between work, kids, etc but at least it's home made!
Boy, am I behind!
First, Seagrass, I LOVE the Aussies, they're beautiful. The stuffies looks pretty good too, LOL.
Everything looks delicious, from the cookies to the sushi. Ann's steak is always perfectly done for me and Rob's ribs look sticky and just right. Sleevendog's dinners are fresh and healthy and beautiful as always, and then there is the apple pie, which is just lovely. Of course I love all the seafood.
Lynda, would that be a nutella brownie in the skillet? Yum!
Gardengrl, my meals are seldom fancy, LOL. Sometimes they are half eaten before I even remember!
Anyway, Peppi came to visit, it was so good to see her. Since I was taking Mother to my brother's for the weekend, I wasn't home to cook, but I baked homemade rye bread, some focacia, cheese coins. Elery made some venison Italian sausage and I got out jars of home canned basil green beans, pickled asparaus, pickled biquinho peppers. We had some cheese, some proscuitto that Peppi brought, some salami. We ate and talked and it was good.
I finally made those lemon ricotta pancakes I've kept the recipe for for several years, with some blueberry sauce made with blueberries from the freezer:
I made a moose loin while Peppi was here, with some roasted vegetables, and I had cured a venison roast and made corned venison so I could make hash.
Peppi gave me a hands-on tutorial on rouladen, which we had with mashed potatoes and Peppi's red cabbage that she cans. I had two helpings of mashed potatoes and then was full to the point of bursting. I forgot to take a picture until we were packing up the leftovers for storage, LOL.
I baked some rye bread and a cake with apples, raisins, pecans, cinnamon and a buttermilk glaze that gets poured over the warm cake after holes are poked in the cake with skewers. It came from a soft cover book called "America's Test Kitchen's Lost Recipes" and was called "Cafeteria Lady's Cake". It was good, I was impressed and extremely easy and "unfussy".
Peppi brought along her chaperone, Her Royal Highness The Princess Emma Bella. Yeah, not really, but she THINKS she's the Princess, and it's the thought that counts. We wore the poor thing out!
Peppi and I went to a local apple orchard and bought apples, so I'll be making something with apples soon. We also visited a local small meat market so she could buy some beef tongues, and other than that we just talked and caught up, it was so good to see her again.
And now, I think I'm caught up!
What a nice visit. Some sense of normalcy finally. Nothing like a good in person 'gab' and even better---a house guests that is also a good cook.
I had an excellent HomeEconomics teacher in high school. Where i first had beef tongue. Loved it ever since but only have it from delis. I like it sliced paper thin in a sanwich. I got rid of our electric deli slicer.
Made salmon croquettes last night. Expected them to fall apart being the VP of the fall-apart club. They were perfect. Last weekend i attemped smashed/crash potatoes that totally fell apart.
sleevendog, my crashed potatoes ALWAYS fall apart, I thought I was the expert on that, LOL. The salmon cakes look perfect, they make up for any deconstructed potatoes!
It was a very nice visit, I've missed Peppi a lot. As for beef tongue, I remember when I was a kid, Dad liked them sliced in sandwiches. More than one of my friends opened the refrigerator to be surprised at the sight of a big, cold beef tongue, just sitting on a plate waiting to be sliced. (grin)
We're still working on leftovers here, but Mother is with me and so I've been trying things I think she might like. She always like zucchini, so I took one of the last few that have been hanging on and made Sol's zucchini pancakes:
Sure enough, she didn't like them, but Elery added a smear of cream cheese and used them to roll up some of the smoked salmon I bought at the meat market with Peppi. It was actually really good.
Mother had broccoli cheese soup from the local Subway, one of her favorites.
So nice Annie reading about your visit with Peppi, and I love all the food you cooked. Can’t eat tongue.... yep I just can’t get over the look of them in the butchers. I have Polish friends who introduced me to rouladen which are good and I love them with mashed beetroot with horseradish we eat with them.
So many delcious looking meals from everyone. I don’t mention it enough but really Sleevendog I am always in awe of the fresh healthy multiple ingredients you make your food with. Plus they look so good with a distinctive ’you’ look.
The craziness that is Covid continues here. My city is waiting till 70% of over 16 year olds are double vaccinated before ending this what seems like, endless lockdown. My hubby got a permit to visit our country get away and so now we are apart for a couple of weeks, which is different.
Back to WFD.
Meals are a little different just cooking for myself.. Soaked and cooked Cannellini beans, later cooked them with onion, garlic, mushrooms and spinach.
Also cooked a seafood spagetti with a rich tomato base sauce.
gardengrl66 z5 Welcome! Several of us also grow our own produce and I balance work and homeschooling our 12 year old son. I love to do fancy, but is only once in awhile for me, given everything else I have on my plate. We love to see what you are having for dinner, fancy or not!
Neely, Are you required to get a permit to travel to your other home?!?! I have an elderly cousin (she is 90) who is living by herself in Noosa, while her children and grandchildren are all in New Zealand. I worry about her being so isolated.
I am afraid, I can't eat tongue either. My parent's frequently served it when I was a child and made me stay at the table until I finished. I never got over my dislike of it.
WFD last night was a repeat of the Macadamia nut crusted fish I made last week. Last time I used sea bass from the fish market and I wanted to see if I could replicate with the frozen Costco tilapia we always have in the freezer. The short answer was yes, it is a good way to prepare the tilapia and no, it was nowhere as good as the sea bass.
Lynda, my DH was required to get a permit to visit our holiday home. I wont be able to join him for a couple of weeks which is the estimated time it will take to get to get to the 70% fully vaccinated rate. Your elderly cousin being in Noosa is not in lockdown where she is but no one from another state or country can visit her. I guess she will have friends in her neighbourhood.
Strangely, my post only appears in Houzz and not in the old gardenweb format, or maybe it does for others.
Macadamia crusted cod, coconut rice, and tropical salsa.
I can see your posts fine Neely and I use Gardenweb. I too think it's weird that you and DH can't both travel to your other home.
GardenGal, nice to see you, I'm glad you dipped your toe in.
Annie what a nice visit with Peppi. Thanks for sharing it with us. Organ meats........a hard pass for me :)
Sleeve I don't always comment on your meals, but believe me, I'm in awe on your healthy and appetizing meals.
I had spaghetti with garlic cheese bread done in the air-fyer. I put the roll in a metal fish to keep it all contained and it worked perfectly. As if you don't know what spaghetti looks like LOL!
Perfect temps rewarded with another flush of zuccini flowers and fruits. Crispy fried bottom sides....egg and corn flour crust.
Thanks for the feed back Jasdip. Strange, I still can’t see my last post in Gardenweb, but can see earlier ones. Thought your comment about spaghetti was funny, but still liked to see it anyway. WFD tragic that I am. We can only get a permit for a special reason to go into our country areas as they are free of Covid and we all want to keep it that way. DH applied because of maintenance due to heavy rain. I might be able to join him this week, fingers crossed.
Good looking meal there rob and I like the sound of the tropical salsa.
The zuccini flowers look yummy as they do whenever you cook them Sleevendog
So still solo cooking
Calamari and a bean salad
I roasted a tiny chicken with roast pumpkin and roast broccoli. The usual tomato, coriander and green onion on the side. The chicken leg was so small I went back for more
Roasting a chicken tomorrow. It's the season. Then stock and soup next week. You have reminded me to soak some beans...
I've been making nut/seed crusted fish lately. So good.
Last night was shrimp and merguez alla vodka sauce.
Annie, thank you for everything, including the love you both showed Emma. And the food/meals!
Yes, I bought 3 cow tongues for the freezer. Hated it as a kid, but now, I love it. I also came home with a 1/2 bushel of apples, tons of produce from Annie's garden.
Emma had a great time with Molly and stubby cat, playing hard, eating snacks, and just loving on Elery. She was so tired by Monday morning that she went back to bed and barked until I joined her. Once in the car, she slept in her car seat all the way home. I think she wants to go back to you, it is too quiet here.
Thanks again my friend!
This is our Thanksgiving and I had my meal today.
First time buying a Butterball as it's all the stores were selling this year. Not impressed, it smells very gamey. I'm not sure what to do with the leftovers. I'm not sure I should even make soup. I've been giving some chunks to Bud, my cat. He doesn't seem to mind it.
Anyway here's my dinner.
And pie for later
Hey, is there a new wrinkle with the CF? I did a long post tonight about what DD’s been doing and eating in Marseille. But I don’t see it in the CF. The post exists, see below, but when I back out to the CF post list, it doesn’t appear.
John, I read your post earlier and was going to come back and see if you added a second post because the last paragraph didn't seem finished. Now the post seems to have disappeared.
It was a series of posts. Hmm. I guess I’ll try again tonight.
Wait - the post is definitely here somewhere. I copied the URL https://www.gardenweb.com/discussions/6186498/dd-s-in-marseille
and I can paste that into another browser tab and see and even edit the post. Try the link, see if you can view or comment on the post.
I seem to have discovered the secret ”non-indexed post” option!
It seems we take turns getting squirley threads that either flicker on and off or go away all together. I had one a few months ago during a road trip that i could see in a search but no others could see it in a link or search.
No, your link comes up totally blank. Bummer.
But your name is back.
I made a tettrazini out of some turkey leftovers.
Roasted a nice big organic bird. Now some stock and something tonight. Maybe a chicken salad kale caesar. Pasta sounds good but we have had lots of noodles lately.
Still cooking solo but tomorrow I have a permit to join my husband for one night because he is my ‘intimate partner’ LOL. I swear if I get stopped by the police and I have to give the reason why I am driving in the countryside, I will burst out laughing.
I made some more beans and veg and had them with a piece of local fish called snapper which my son dropped off for me. Also red cabbage with sweet and sour Polish cucumber.
So many wonderful meals.
Annie, so nice that you and Peppi could get together again.
Thanks for the reminder of Sol's zucchini pancakes. Haven't made them in a while and they are so good.
Jasdip, I love the look of your chicken legs and how you seasoned them. I have an air fryer setting on my new oven, but only used it once for chicken wings in the 8 months I've had it.
Rob, I might have to copy your macadamia crust and use it on halibut. I think that Moe would probably really like that preparation.
Neely, Your seafood spaghetti look delicious. And I was trying to figure out what to make Moe for dinner tonight . I'm working today but will pull some spot prawns out of the freezer. .
A few of our recent meals.
We had our Thanksgiving dinner a day late.. Presalted a small turkey, just under 8lbs a few days earlier and roasted it on high heat.
Traditional turkey dinner with all the sides.
Steak and Frites with mushrooms and a wine sauce.
Pan fried Halibut Piccata over spaghetti. I don't like capers so when I make anything Piccata I used green peppercorns.
Veal scaloppini with mushrooms, roasted potatoes and sauted broccolini with garlic and red pepper flakes.
Ham sandwich on homemade baguette.
Had a craving for ham.
Coconut milk green chicken curry.
...because he is my ‘intimate partner’, 😂
Thank goodness it is not 'domestic needs' like cooking and cleaning.
I could survive on veg, grains, beans and seeds.
But that ham sandwich and steak frites....yum
Made stock, another batch of zuccini friters, lettuce wraps. Then last night made a chicken pot pie. Nice gravy from some of the stock.
Beautiful meals Anne and Sleevendog.
I took a few foods with me to visit DH including a carrot cake and some frozen prawns which I made into a stir fry for us.
