    Leftovers? Well I guess it was a pretty big pot. It was almost as good tonight it was yesterday.

    Next time you make it, Norm, do this and your guests will be wowed!

    For New Year's Eve dinner: shrimp with cocktail sauce and a salad of baby spinach with a dressing of olive oil, dijon mustard, red wine vinegar, rosemary, salt and pepper. For New Year's Day lunch: BLT sandwiches with fruit on the side. For New Year's Day dinner: rotini pasta with marinara sauce and pecorino romano cheese... with a side salad of cucumber, cherry tomato, sweet onion and button mushrooms with a fresh vinaigrette.

    An easy lunch and dinners to prepare and deliver to the nursing home and mom was happy.

    Chicken soup, from scratch, in my new Dutch Oven, a Christmas gift from my mother. I was out of egg noodles, so I used rigatoni.

    I do like my baby shrimps. This time it was sauteed in a ton of garlic, some onion, and a wad of fresh basil. Add green beans, frozen from last summer, then tiny elbow macaroni. Mix with a sauce of my own concoction that started with sriracha, but also had lime juice, a bit of chicken broth, and some diced tomatoes. Turned out quite nicely. Just enough heat to break a sweat, but not enough to paralyze the taste buds <G>

    Yuck! Who taught you to sauté with fresh Basil? Heat destroys the volatile oils which give it aroma and flavor, and turns it black.

    Spaghetti alla Carbonara, with homemade pancetta. Low prep time and effort, high delectability. Salad of baby greens from our hothouse.

    Our guests brought panna cotta for dessert, with raspberry syrup.

    Took my youngest to the local bodega. Foreground is my fried pork and yellow rice. Margaret had rice and beans and chicken soup. Great food on a cold day( quick and cheap, too)

    Yes, that was misleading. I didn't saute the basil, the macaroni, or the green beans. Except that the basil went into the pan for a moment, just before the already-cooked macaroni & green beans did. The bit of rosemary, however, went in early.

    -----------------

    Tonight - I'm stuffed, and in heaven.

    Nothing I cooked, but my sweetie picked up a batch of tamales from the young Hispanic woman whose mother and father make them. She camps outside the local hippie/organic/healthfood store with coolers full. I usually get chicken or pork, but tonight it was veggies with extra cheese. Nothing like it... I'm a huge tamale fan. Wasn't expecting such a surprise. She may be my 'starter wife'... but I'm beginning to think I might just keep her. <G>

    When our friends came for dinner, they left us a pan of rye sandwich rolls. So I fetched a hunk of homemade pastrami (below, left) from the freezer and steamed it all afternoon. Thick schmear of mustard and we were in heaven. With sliced ripe tomatoes and big red grapes.

    It's snowing here and is forecast to continue through this evenings rush hour.

    The good news is a hot meal will be waiting for me when I get home.

    Bocconcini (little balls of fresh mozzarella) with sausage, red bell pepper, roma tomatoes, and brown mushrooms, garnished with fresh chopped basil and served over penne, on a bed of rocquette (arugula).



    Como bread and butter on the side, and a bottle of Col di Sasso red.

    Had some tomatoes in a paper bag to ripen. Some did.

    Anyhow, I chopped them up and decided to make hot sauce.



    Found some very hot red peppers that I roasted and froze a couple years ago, and added them. Chopped onion and garlic. Ancho chile powder and smoked paprika. Apple cider vinegar, salt, water, xanthan gum. The new immersion blender works a treat for this sort of thing.

    Bingo!



    Scorching, and very tasty!

    Last night for dinner I had two of the home-baked chocolate cupcakes with chocolate frosting that our d-i-l brought over. Oh... ok... I had a big glass of milk as well.

    I ate at Korean Barbeque tonight, where there is a grill in the table and they bring over a bucket of coals to your table and cook your food over them.

    First, a variety of appetizers, including mushrooms, noodles, squid and more. Delish yellow bean sauce to go with.

    Being served. The waitress used big shears rather than a knife to portion the meat.

    Desert was melon, oranges and tomatoes.

    I brined this chunk of brisket for a week in a corned beef spice/sugar/salt solution. It's now on its way to becoming smoked pastrami epicness.

    Yesterday, we cooked a whole chicken, and vegetables, in the crock pot. So tender. So delicious. And I really like potatoes, carrots, and onions done this way.

    Last night it was salmon cakes. Topped with a delicious mayo-based garlic dill sauce. Steamed cabbage sprinkled with coarse seasalt and caraway seeds. Cottage cheese with paprika. Toasted caraway rye. A light lager to wash it down. Might just do a repeat for lunch.

    Just eaten carbonara, we had some chestnut mushrooms to use up so they were mixed in as well. Excellent.
