Toast. Really in no mood for cooking.
Last night, we had pork chops pan-seared in cast iron, with toasted Italian bread points, hearts of romaine salad with olive oil and balsamic vinegar dressing, and fresh applesauce.
For tonight, I have a bone-in pork roast sitting in the crock pot over white and sweet onions, fresh potatoes, and chopped garlic (all the vegetables came from the farmers' market). That'll be dished up with boiled sweet corn, fresh stuffing and another salad.
Had two slices of left over Ham and Pineapple pizza and some chicken wings.
spaghetti and garlic bread
Mexican chicken, white wine and cake for pudding.
Mexican Chicken sounds interesting. What's in it (besides chicken)?
Did a Cobb Salad last night as an unexpected dinner at Village Inn as VI is only a block from the ER.
Vegan macaroni and cheese from Amy's. It was surprisingly decent.
Coincidentally, I made my mom's (non-vegan) home made mac and cheese last night. A totally unhealthy guilty pleasure that I probably indulge in less than once a year. And it was gooooooooood.
A warm wrap with two hard-boiled eggs, tomato, iceberg lettuce, coarse pepper, and sea salt. Simple and tasty.
It was rainy here yesterday, so we decided to cook up an Indian feast to pass the time.
I made a lamb dish with yogurt and tomato sauce, and this carrot salad. My wife made naan, which tastes just like the stuff at the restaurant, and rice pudding.
It was yummy! And it made leftovers.
Steak and kidney pie with roast potatoes.
For the record, holy shit -- this was amazing. The pork just fell right off the bone. I then turned around and made some pork stock with the bone from the roast, and I plan on making split-pea soup with it.
I have a crock pot, but can't figure out how to use it. I'd love to be able to use it more in the winter, and come home to a delicious smelling kitchen.
Everything ends up gummy and overcooked. Even things specifically out of a crock pot cookbook.
The key to crock pot cooking is low and slow. If you're cooking things on high, you're going to wind up with chewy turds.
My dogs love chewy turds, and you don't even need to cook them first.
I was on a date, so we went to a sushi place I know on Ventura that makes amazing --wait for it-- sushi.
Beef and broccoli.
