Japanese Curry

Saturday, November 11, 2017, 06:40 PM

I made Japanese Curry. As I have done before, it was just:

I also used a different type of curry this time as pictured below. We actually found this in OKC, though I've heard of it before (not sure if they sell it in ABQ). I also took thia chili peppers that Meredith grew (though they had dried out nicely). I groudn them up and put that in which gave them a strong heat.

I also let it simmer for good while to help cook all of the potatoes.

On mine, I served it with brown rice leftover from a year ago. I liked it with that!

By the way, I used 3/4 of a package (6 of 8 blocks or 6.75 if 9 servings). It was looking like a lot of veggies so I used extra.

Taco Stew

Wednesday, November 08, 2017, 07:43 PM

I made the pretty standard taco stew. I did it with French lentils following the same instructions for brown lentils. Other than that, I stayed really true to the recipe.

The only thing of note is that I put a ton of zucchini in, but it all came from one crazy-sized home-grown zucchini (below)

Smokey Egg Salad

Monday, November 06, 2017, 06:28 AM

Meredith made a Smokey Egg Salad for lunch based on her favorite Deviled Eggs Recipe. She used that recipe except also added the egg whites chopped up.

The biggest change was that instead of making the frizzled shallots, we bought canned onions. Make it a lot easier!

Romesco and Roasted Vegetables

Sunday, November 05, 2017, 07:14 PM

We had a Meredith Meal of sorts. She made Romesco Sauce and I roasted some vegetables. It was about a pound of brussel sprouts and a large head of cauliflower. I tossed the cauliflower with some oil, salt, smoked paprika, and garlic powder. The brussel sprouts were just tossed with oil and salt. They were small which I think tend to be better.

It was a really good! Lots of food but just veggies and romesco. We also had some cibatta rolls (par-baked kind from Trader Joes).

Dog Treats and Cake Balls

Saturday, November 04, 2017, 03:59 PM

We had a doggie date so I made some dog treats (and human treats but more on that later).

I made the doggie treats somewhat based on All Recipes (LOCAL). Except I didn't really follow it well. I replaced 1 cup of the flour with oatmeal and I forgot the peanut butter. It was also hard to shape it but some time in the freezer worked fine. And the dogs seemed to like it so that's good. (the humans thought it was fine...)

I also made cake balls. I followed The Kitchn (LOCAL) for making cake balls. I used the extra half of the cake from last week. I was unsure about whether I should adjust the amount of frosting since it was only half a cake. Well, the Kitchn's recipe uses 1-3/4 cups flour and the cake we made used 3 cups. I thought it would be fine, but I missed the large amount of everything else. Basically, there was way too much frosting.

It was kind of a mess, but I was able to eventually get it into balls. Because they were so soft, I froze them for a while before doing the chocolate. (real white chocolate chips and then some old-but-fine dark chocolate, both mixed with a bit of coconut oil). They again were decintegrating in the chocolate, but I eventually got them most to work. I put them back in the freezer and...

...I forgot to serve them!!!!

We ate some later. They were ok, though I thought the frosting was a bit overpowering as was the chocolate. Still, pretty good!

Lentils with Mushrooms and Kale

Friday, November 03, 2017, 09:07 PM

Meredith made Creamy French Lentils with Mushrooms & Kale from The First Mess (LOCAL).

She mostly followed the recipe with the following notes:

We also let it simmer for a long time since we were chatting with friends at the time.

We liked it. It was really good on top of an english muffin.

Notes for next time:

Lasagna Soup

Thursday, November 02, 2017, 08:05 PM

I made the pretty standard Lasagna Soup. The only real note here is that I decided to add some anchovy paste. I also added half a zucchini to use it up. And we used tortilinni in it (Meredith's favorie addition)

Nothing special, but pretty easy and good!

Chicken Pot Pie

Sunday, October 29, 2017, 08:17 PM

I made chicken pot pie. Like last time, we did it with 2% milk which worked really well. I also did it with some dried thyme and again used some anchovy paste. I also threw in some green chile, but not a signifigant amount. I did use half of a zucchini to bulk it up.

It was pretty good. A bit spicy. We managed to squeeze 6 servings (2 dinner, 4 lunch) out of it, but it was a stretch. I do like how easy this is!
