Chicken Fried Rice.

Just kind of threw stuff together, turned out OK but not as good as it could have been.

Yesterday I made this weird but not bad stir fry with a citrus/ginger/cinnamon sauce. I liked it, anyhow, and certainly a nice healthy dinner over brown rice.

Today is another healthy day: quinoa and black bean stuffed peppers and zucchini. Gotta say, though - hollowing zucchini is a bitch.

A hint on stuffed zucchini- use larger ones. Then you can scoop out the seedy part with a big spoon and you're done. And they hold up to baking better. Molly Katzen called them Zuc-canoes because of the size preferred.

Good call. I made some milk-braised pork with green cardamom and a little nutmeg, and it's a successful combination. Not surprising; green cardamom is the usual spice used with cooked milk in Indian cuisine.

Made turkey with cranberry, apple and orange with maple syrup chutney for Christmas. Tried to make brown gravy but failed because of my reservations towards the turkey juice, it looked almost like toxic waste. It ended up as a turkey stock-bechamel-cheese sauce.

My favorite thing about the Post-Christmas period is the various ways to finish off leftovers. My favorite is Ham sandwich with dijon mustard on one side and cranberry sauce on the other. Simple and amazing.

Yesterday I had the best sandwich I've ever eaten.

Brown bread thickly buttered. The first layer was Cheddar Gorge Mature Cheese (from the town of Cheddar itself). Then I sliced a red onion and used half of it (it was the sweetest red onion I've ever tasted). Then I added some left over gammon (a slice of what Americans would call a 'ham' I believe) and topped it off with wholegrain mustard (from Cumbria).

Insane. It was sweet from the onion, salty from the gammon, it had that taste that only mature cheese gives and the mustard just topped it off perfectly. I will never make a sandwich so tasty

Made a salsa for appetizers on Christmas using pinapple, cucumbers, cilantro, agave nectar and habenero. Was different but very good.

Made a pasta lulubella last night that tasted wonderful. Cream sauce over linguini with peas, crispy pancetta, and mushrooms. Lots of garlic.

Yeah, it's basically an instant mocha, except that it wakes you up more or less instantly. Nice when you need a lot to get you up and you don't feel like just having really strong coffee.

Here's the my standard recipe (mandachan made it at about half or one-third strength):

Heat 12oz of milk

Add: 2 cup's worth of instant coffee powder (mocha works well)
1/2 to 1 cup's worth of hot chocolate powder
several spoonfuls of sugar
chocolate chips (optional)


Drink. Do not consume with depressants such as alcohol. Because you get annihilation and a gamma ray explosion.

That might have been the problem...

So I made SERIOUS hot chocolate for the family on Christmas day. Mom only had a sip of Dad's, brother said "wow" and quietly drank his ounce-or-two from the crystal sherry glass I nicked from the china cabinet. Dad, on the other hand, acted like I'd given him the elixir of happiness. He reclined in his comfy leather La-Z-Boy-type chair and enjoyed the hell out of every last sip. He tried to figure out how to lick the insides of the tiny glass, then settled on running his finger around it and licking that. I should have known he'd appreciate it. :wink:

The recipe:

One tablespoon, more or less, of well-chopped-nearly-ground, good quality 70% dark chocolate (or any other percentage you like, probably)

An equal amount of half-and-half cream (10%), more or less according to taste, with higher or lower fat content according to tolerance

Melt the choccy carefully in the microwave or a double boiler. Stop just after it has started to seriously melt. (You don't want it to go over about 130F / 55C or else the choccy might burn.)

Add the cream/milk and stir seriously. There are no emulsifiers to help you along, so get a teeny whisk or something similar. Stir it up good. Dump an ounce or two, more or less, into a cup that doesn't make it look wimpy. Add a dusting of cinnamon or nutmeg or chili powder or even instant coffee if you're so inclined.

Drink up. Nom. Nom nom nom. Nomnomnomnomnomnomnomnomnomnom.

If you want to take it to a slightly different direction, add some vanilla extract, or liquor of some sort (amaretto or cocoa liquor would work nicely, as would brandy and such).

Sausage, cheese and chutney sandwiches, fried in butter.

Leek, onion and red cabbage stock. Which, once cooled a bit and strained, will have a rack of smoked pork ribs simmered in it to falling-apart point, and then the rib meat and some split peas and barley added to make a soup.

Onion-stuffed, pancetta-wrapped lambs' hearts, slow-baked in some more chopped onion, butter and stock (in progress).

Braised lamb necks from Chris Badenoch's book (also in progress), to be served with minted peas. I've used a 2008 Cooper's Vintage instead of a Belgian Dubbel, because the bottle shop was closed. But I think the Cooper's will do very nicely.

The aforementioned barley, split pea and smoked rib soup.

Minted peas to go with the lamb necks.

Also, last night there were garlic snails on toast.

Later today there will be pad thai.

We're taking advantage of a week off work to get lots of advance cooking done, so that we'll be less tempted to get takeaway once we have a freezer full of awesome home-cooked portions.

I roasted a turkey leg. First one ever.

For my friend Catherine.

I'm vegetarian. Kitty is ill and has decided to like turkey. So I find myself in a den of evil butcher's shop asking for a leg of devil turkey, get the torturing cooking instructions, find out they're wrong, figure it out, and sort-of-voilà: roast turkey thigh.

Kitty enjoyed muchly, and continues to enjoy the leftovers. Me, I ended up a bit nauseated, but I was okay after downing a cup of soy milk. :wink:

Probably should have made this postscript: I'm making a bit more fun of myself than I need to. If medical issues didn't require vegetarianism, I'd probably eat a little bit of animal now and then, given my early preferences. Since I've been veggie-eating for so long, though, my body no longer seems to recognise animal bits as food. It's a bit strange to think "I smell barbecue! I want some tofu now", but that's pretty much what happens. Bodies People are weird.

Also, thanks for the suggestion Nath. None that I have found so far offer small amounts of unseasoned/unstuffed/otherwise plain roasted turkey, except for the deli slice sort of thing. She's had some of that and was kind of "meh" (if you can imagine a cat saying that), so I wanted to get her something more tempting.

Ate like a king at the parents' for the holidays. Returned late last night; the fridge is devoid of things that aren't sauces or pickled but the freezer contained some leftover vegetables roasted with balsamic and feta. Had it for lunch on some whole wheat spaghetti dressed in parmisan infused olive oil. It was awesome.

Goose is too good for kitties.
I made a big pot of chili, nicely spicy. My brother decreed it too hot for the family (especially the 9 year old). So he tamed it and now it's rather boring. I will make more! A smaller batch, so that the niece need not have any.

French toast, in used coconut oil (it was sitting in the skillet, and smelled good when heated). Surprisingly, it turned out better than using pork fat or butter.

Currently starting some misc. kale and parsley soup, as well, in a konbu broth (the rest of the ingredients I'll figure out later, but they need to be taken care of now).

Today I tried to make: a coconut milk/sun-dried tomato sauce, inspired by a couple of things I found around the web. Shallots, garlic, cumin, coriander, basil, allspice, and mustard-seed-because-the-grocery-store-didn't-have-lemongrass-dammit. (And I'm allergic to lemon itself. And to the chilies that also could have joined in.)

I meant to let it simmer for a long time, but it boiled a lot when I wasn't looking. So I let it cool and ran it through a blender. Some thoughts:
- Damn, I wish I'd had some lemongrass.
- Probably would have tasted better if it hadn't boiled for ten minutes. >.<
- Some almonds, which I planned to add but forgot, might have helped a bit. Or not.
- Also probably should have added more sun-dried tomato bits. The tomato taste is subtle and there's nothing really taking its place, just a biggish empty spot in the middle of one's tastebuds.

Not a terrible first attempt, but I'd like to try it again. With lemongrass.

One thing that might help is to toast some tomato paste in the pan for a bit along with the aromatics. It'll probably go into the sauce more easily than sun dried tomatoes, and add some tang to replace the lemon.

Probably needs a little oil, depending on what sort of pan you use. But even if a bit gets dark, it'll just get caramelized and delicious, unless burnt all the way to blackness. It'll come off the pan when you add liquid ingredients and stir. Sort of a vegetarian fond.

The first two are in an effort to stick to low GI eating by having tasty handy snacks, the last to take to my friendly old lady neighbour tomorrow.

Using mushed up chickpeas, butterbeans etc in place of flour is a well known trick for gluten free and low GI baking. I've made it once before and then it tasted a bit of chickpeas for the first day, after that not at all. These don't taste of it at all - maybe because instead of just mashing it with a fork I used the food processor to blend it to a pulp.
