Just made some brunch... a few slices of applewood smoked bacon from my local butcher, three duck eggs over easy, and an English muffin with lots of butter, served up with a nice Darjeeling tea. Now I have to go to work and make other people food.

I'm making champinones al ajillo (Garlic/lemon whole mushroom tapa), pan fried zuchinni, oven baked tilapia with a spicy walnut/garlic crust. Simple mediterranean food. Lots of olive oil, lemon and garlic.

Last night we had breaded Chicken Tenders, Tater Tots and three different "other" accompaniments. I had fresh cantaloupe, the DW had cole slaw from BBQ the other day and the DD had a salad. A nice, light, simple and very low budget meal. :look: Found half of a leftover lasagne in the freezer so...that combined with meat sauce and a rope of sausage from the freezer as well is dinner tonight. Just need to decide on a veg accompaniment. If the store has some escarole, maybe that sautéed for me and a salad for the DW and DD :smiles:

Thanks! I'm really tryin' My Secret is I recently discovered that a motorcycle riding buddy, who is a pro photographer, also has "foodie tendencies" and while flipping through this awesome new dessert book (Dessert Fourplay by Johnny Iuzzini) I was so taken back by the photography, I looked at who the photographer was and almost fell over laughing "hey I ride motorcycles with that guy!" - So I've been getting some advice. It's tough taking pictures of food you want to eat before it gets cold!!! Very short window of time...I wish I had more in focus in that shot, and some more post processing time, but o well.

JOHNNY IUZZINI / Dessert Four Play is the book.

If you haven't seen the book, it's worth buying just for the food porn pictures.

Dad came over for me to cut up and foodsave a tenderloin for him in the middle so no really good pictures, but heres the awesomeness that is duck and onion confit pizza.

I thought duck confit and risotto a was my ultimate comfort food, I was wrong, it's duck confit pizza.

Black Bean 'burger' and sweet potato fries...

post #819 of 1539
Teaching daughter to cook - to give me a night "off" - ah well, but she's attempting roast chicken maryland pieces on a bed of roast sweet potatoes, onions, carrots with herbs and coleslaw on the side. Shall see how we go!

RPM - how did you get the blackening effect on your black bean burger and curry chicken? They look great.

YUMMM I love both of those
post #821 of 1539
Haha, well I have to admit I used a non-stick for both of these....the nightmare of cleaning out a stainless caked in curry or black beans was not something I was looking forward to. The chicken, I just wanted a nice brown/black on....I like the curry chicken that way, so, I just cooked on medium-high on the stovetop for a few minutes each side until it blackened. The coating in curry helped, I pretty much just threw the chicken in a gallon ziplock with 1/4 cup of curry, 1tbsp red pepper flakes and salt and pepper then threw them in a dry non stick on mid high.

the black bean burgers needed to be blackened to have any **** good texture and actually stay together. this time i used 3-4 tbsp of oil in the pan

Hey hey I did it!!! Posted a pic, thanks RPM for the downloading guidance. I'm not so good at finding my way around downloading pics but as you can see I can make a mean thin-crust pizza! The top is pepperoni, mushroom, fresh mozz, and the bottom pizza is veggie, basil, smoked mozz.

Tailgate party!

Gonna watch the Super Bowl tonight at my son's house with a large assortment of snacks and dips. (Maybe some wine, too) :lol:

I'm bringing a Garbage Salad (that may be a strictly Chicago thing like hot giardinera, I don't know) a bunch of jalapeno shooters stuffed with Italian sausage, and a lot of cocktail meatballs in sauce which is NOT ketchup and grape jelly.

I notice that the Pittsburgh public schools are officially opening two hours late tomorrow morning. That's how big a grip the Stillers have on the city.

We will have another granddaughter wave our Terrible Towel during the game. It worked for the playoff, when our GD from Pbgh visited and we all watched the game. :bounce:

Kouk, Respectable job with the "Za's". Hope they tasted half as good as they looked...........:smiles:

We were on our way to a nice night at home with a dinner of beef Stroghanoff and a chilled cucumber, carrot and tomato salad (sweet and sour vinegar base) until I called the neighbor asking if he was working tomorrow. (Needed some help with tile work at the house). Anyway, ended up over there for a Game party. So the Stroghanoff was chilled and a Southwestern Spinach dip as well as Chili con Queso dip (old Rio Bravo recipe:lips: Just wish I had one of those old tortilla machines :smiles: )were thawed and brought over with us. They served typical fare and wings were on the list. Had this seasoning called "Slap yo Momma". It was abundantly applied to the wings. For simple with a kick it was pretty decent stuff. I mean, not everyone does gourmet style stuff and quite frankly, simple really hits the spot right now.:look:

Tomorrow will be the Stroghanoff.

Last night I went shopping in the freezer and pulled out the last of the tenderloin I butchered up, and roasted some spicy sweet potatos

Tonight went shopping in the freezer again and pulled out 2 turkey wings that were in the back of the freezer and made a turkey tortilla soup. Made a black bean salsa to go on top with blackbeans, red onion, tomato, cilantro, jalapeno, some lime juice.

Chicken with Red Curry paste and coconut milk, potatoes, and some udon noodles I shopped from the pantry.

post #830 of 1539
There you go again, making me hungry.
The chopsticks add to it, like they're saying "here, have some . . ."
post #831 of 1539
nothing special tonight just chickpeas, onions, cilantro some lime juice, and some manchego cheese.

had 2 barely pork chops, thin cut in the freezer and browned em, threw some onions, garlic, olives and sweated them and then some diced tomatoes in there for a few minutes...

post #832 of 1539
Looks yummy RPM! Wish I had pics also.

Nothing special here too, just good fresh produce from the Farmer's Market: Leek fondant with Sole Meuniere.

Tonight was just some linguine with leftover mushroom and sausage sauce from the other night and a side salad. Nothing really noteworthy except for one detail. I took the time to tear apart some bread and cook up some croutons in garlic and butter.

So simple, but such a nice addition to the salad.

Today was scrap day. Had some boneless/skinnless chicken thighs left over, roasted them and chopped them up and threw together (actually the fiance did) chicken "burgers" with a concasse and some broccoli.

With some leftover turkey

that I grilled last weekend, I made a small pot of turkey and andouille sausage gumbo. Pretty satisfying on a cool winter evening.

Whole wheat penne with garlic, onions, mushrooms and crumbled goat cheese.

post #840 of 1539
Last night was Penne and meatballs with Marinara sauce and a nice salad. Tonight was seared Top sirloin steaks I cut and froze several weeks ago (food saver), baked potatoes loaded with all the trimmings and cauliflower au gratin. Nice bowl of the Hawaiian Pineapple from the other night is going to be my dessert. Tomorrow is baked meatball subs with roasted red potatoes, green and red peppers, romano and garlic as a side.
