Yesterday, scotch quail eggs. Today, chook scratchings and the bottom half of a shepherd's pie. Tomorrow, the rest of the pie and then mung dal with tomatoes in.

Chook scratchings sounds like what you would feed your chickens, not something made of chicken you would feed yourself. Are they tasty?

ETA: today I made beef stir fry and a nice red curry with beef and veg, served both over soba noodles. Also great fresh corn on the cob.

Very tasty :) Essentially pork scratchings, ie. deep-fried skin, but made from chook skin. Eaten salted like crisps, and accompanied by beer (Old Speckled Hen, in this case).

Also, it has been far too long since I made curry... *schemes*

Today I made an onion quiche and channa masala (Indian chickpea dish). I think the channa masala may have been over-seasoned a bit, but it should work fine with rice.

+1 for the pr0n thread.

Two days ago:
Pork loin with onions, peppers, and celery in a pan sauce of olive oil and butter.

Yesterday:
Broth, with what was left of the pork loin (I really got it for broth in the first place).

Today:
Cabbage and onion soup with said broth.

On Friday, we brought a salad made with some of the ripe figs from our tree and some chicken on skewers marinated with yogurt and curry spice to a potluck at Sarah's workplace.

Last night, Sarah stewed some more of the figs with honey and made sandwiches of goat cheese, honeyed fig and ham on wheat bagel. Oh; my; god; Becky. So good.

Tonight I'm making teriyaki chicken legs with some simple white rice and salad, in a nod to bento but without as much aesthetic care.

Chicken roasted in a pan together with garlic, butter, onion ad white pepper. Served with rice and a white sauce with shallots, onions, spinach, white whine, cream and a bit of vinegar & honey. Along with my first bread on the baking stone (turned out great) with sundried tomatoes.

It was glorious I tell you!

Really Wednesday/Thursday, but apple pie, potato salad and pasta salad for my English Club since our last club of the summer was yesterday. All delicious, and the "picnic" was fun... and now I have all the delicious leftovers.

I'm making a "sneakers" cake (crumbly dough topped with dulce de leche mixed with nuts topped with chocolate frosting with crunchy caramelized nuts). I may make another batch of dango like I did yesterday.

That sounds delicious! Do you have any idea why it's called sneakers cake? When I first read this, I was picturing cake served in a shoe. Or shoe-shaped, but that doesn't seem possible with those ingredients.

A King Ranch casserole, with a spicy cheese sauce, turkey chunks and crushed corn chips. Great to be cooking.

I made a french toast casserole and then I ate waaaaay too much of it because it was too delicious. :( Note to self: Only prepare again to have it with others. I doubt I'll be eating more of anything today, though.

Today I made: French toast (with whole wheat French bread), with fig compote (made with brown sugar, cinnamon, lemon peel and juice, and cinnamon). Alex made sausage and bacon to accompany. It was the first "official" breakfast in our new home (meaning the first one with guests), and we served it to my parents and my grandmother. I have to say, I'm pretty damn proud of the fig compote, it was delicious. Now to learn how to can things, so I can have it all winter.

Pinto beans and rice, with chicken.

And now I'm going to have to make french toast.

P.S. French toast.

Take one day old banana and peanut butter sandwich, soak in the custard mix for French toast and fry until crisply brown in butter. Not a bit bad.

Ahhhh, Snickers cake makes so much more sense. And sounds that much more delicious.

TIM: 6L of sweet red peppers in vinegar marinade, canned and sealed, and I have enough peppers for probably 4L more. But not the jars. If peppers are still 8 UAH/kilo ($1 or ~0.75EUR) on Saturday, I'll need to find another pepper recipe. Maybe pepper-eggplant tomato sauce.

Also! Potato salad where everything but the mustard and mayonaise were homegrown. Red onions, potatoes and parsley from my garden and pickles from cucumbers, dill and garlic also from my garden.

And why didn't you make your own mayonnaise? It's simple and delicious!

I already had the store-bought kind, left over from the potato salad I made to bring to my "American" picnic/last day of Summer English Club celebration. Figured if I was walking around in the summer heat, the store bought stuff would hold up better.

And homemade mayo would just mean the not-homemade portion of the meal would be pushed back further. Would have been fresh eggs (from my neighbour) but store-bought sunflower oil. And storebought mustard.

TI(W)M: 2L more of peppers, and probably jarred tomatoes to use as soup/curry/sauce base.

First attempt at homemade sushi using tuna we caught, and salmon (and roe) fresh from Alaska!
It turned out much better than expected, though there is still a lot of room to improve.

Tonight I'm going to be making one of my wife's recipes. It's basically baked chicken with a garlicky rub, with some broth poured over it to keep it from drying out. Simple, I know, but it doesn't have to be complicated to be delicious. :)

Tomato and chorizo omelettes are my new favourite thing. I must have eaten 5 or 6 in the last week.
Eggs laid by the chickens belonging to my neighbours and the tomatoes grown by my girlfriend. Fresh and very tasty.

I also made a stew, which the recipe said would feed 4. We've had 5 servings from it so far and there's still a lot left.

Added garam masala, chilli powder and a premixed 'Chicken Tikka spice mix' to turn leftovers into a curry. It was great re-heated the next day.

Sort of a shepard's pie, except made with ground turkey, so a fowler's pie perhaps? Loads of mashed spuds on top, plenty of nice gravy, made a great lunch of leftovers too.

Today I made my first attempt at tom kha gai, after picking up lemongrass and thai basil at the farmer's market. I went to two asian groceries and couldn't find kaffir limes or their leaves, so I had to stick with regular limes. The end result, though not as good as what I've had in restaurants, was fairly tasty. I'm going to try to improve on it next time. It was surprisingly simple once I had the proper ingredients. I think I need to start with a mix of coconut milk and good chicken stock rather than just coconut milk and water.
