Amba Chicken and Broccolini

Wednesday, April 10, 2019, 08:23 PM

We made Amba (Fermented Mango Sauce) chicken with broccolini. Meredith had seen the sauce at Trader Joes and decided to buy it. I cubed up chicken (~1.5 lbs) into small cubes and tossed it with some salt, pepper, then flour (I did the salt and pepper first to try to coat better). I then pan-fried it with some canola oil (probably a bit more than needed...). At the very end, I added a lot of the sauce (again, probably more than needed) and let it cook for a minute or two. It was really good. I liked the richness and savoriness (umami?) of the sauce!

I also roasted broccolini at 375°F for about 15 minutes. I had tossed it with salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper. Meredith made tahini sauce

Banana Pudding and Dip

Sunday, April 07, 2019, 09:19 PM

We had friends over and made some small bites. We were going to buy "Fiesta Dip" at the grocery store when Meredith realized it was really nothing special and made her own with canned refried beans. For the sour cream, she mixed a bit of taco seasoning into it.

We also made Southern Banana Pudding with that recipe. It did git a little bit burned at the top (cooked it in the toaster oven could be why). Also, we used generic vanilla wafers. I do not know if that was the cause or something else but they all disintegrated into it. Still tasty but not ideal

Meredith made meatloaf from Ottolenghi Simple except replaced the lamb with lean ground beef. She also minced the tomatoes on top instead of grating it (we tried but it didn't work). And she did do the veggies by weight!

It was actually pretty good. It didn't hold together as much as you would expect, probably from the liquid in the veggies, but tasted great. And smelled really good while cooking too. Also worked very well to be prepared ahead of time!

Hotdogs and Spring Peas

Thursday, April 04, 2019, 08:43 PM

We were going to have something else (see meatloaf) but ran out of time so we threw this together. Smoke Brisket Hotdogs and some kind of Jalapeno sausage. Meredith made spring peas and we also had a bagged salad. Pretty simple and actually really tasty

Easy Thai Curry

Wednesday, April 03, 2019, 07:59 PM

Simple and quick Thai curry made with jarred paste and canned coconut milk. It needed more flavor (especially the tofu) but we still enjoyed it. And it was very simple

Meredith's notes with annotations and links:

Cannelés: followed pink books instructions [Patisserie (LOCAL)], subbing Bulliet bourbon for the brandy. Made batter Saturday, and let it rest until Tuesday afternoon. Followed [Eat Little Bird's instructions[elb] (LOCAL) for baking in silicone which included heating the molds for 4-5 min at 430°F. Then pour the batter into hot molds and cook for 15 min. Then lowered to 375 for 1hr 12 min.
