    After all the culinary splendour, this is pretty plain.

    What's the perfect dinner after a forest fire?

    Planned on grilling burgers. With how hard it's raining... that'll have to be tomorrow. So tonite it'll be the last of the sautéed shrimp & leeks over rice.

    Roast rib of beef. Yorkshire pud, roastit tatties, roast carrot and parsnip and cauliflower cheese.

    Saw this quote recently from a U.S. expat - living in the wilds of (Brixton, was it?). She said, after years of living and traveling there, and extensive sampling of the cuisines of Great Britain, she's no closer to having any idea what y'all mean by 'pudding'. Can you help?

    Generic terms with several meanings. Some call the sweet dessert course pudding. So you get rice pudding or other milk puddings like tapioca.
    A basic pudding is boiled or steamed. Haggis is the chieftain of the pudden race, boiled in a skin as are black puddings. Then there are suet pastry puds, sweet or savoury, boiled in a cloth or steamed in a basin. Christmas pud used to be boiled in a cloth, which is why it is pictured on cards as spherical. Then jam rolly polly and spotted dick are still cooked in a cloth. Syrup pud, made with golden syrup is cooked in a basin. Savoury puddings include steak and kidney and a dish my mother made, bacon and onion suet roll, cooked like jam rolly polly in a cloth.
    Back in the day those watching the pennies would have a plain suet pud with gravy before the meat course to take the edge off their appetite, and so eat less of the expensive meat.

    Yorkshire pud is originally a dish of batter cooked in front of the fire under the roasting spit so that it absorbed all the dripping dropping off of the roasting joint. Nowadays it is cooked in the oven. The same batter and cooking method is used for toad in the hole. Left over Yorkshires are good with jam as a pudding course.
    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.

    Fish tacos. We added a Mexican range, developed in conjunction with some Californian foodie friends. This is a recent addition to it. We do our own flour tortillas, cook our own beans (some of the local restaurants buy in tortillas and use tinned beans - ugh) - fresh pico de gallo and we even pickle our own jalapenos. Tip - wear gloves. I've started making our own sour cream. Too damn expensive to buy ready-made here.

    Here's another new one - which I've yet to photograph with my eye on. Ceviche. Prawns in this case.... which we usually serve half and half with guacamole and home-made chips

    Had some bison stew in the freezer, so I heated it and made a roux to thicken the broth. A bit of puff pastry and voila!

    Chicken and broccoli casserole, just like your mom used to make. And if your mom didn’t make it for you...she did you a disservice!

    I have some nice IPA to drink while it bakes.

    Popped it in in the oven a bit ago. It will be ready when Ken gets home, he drove over the mountains to visit his mom this morning.

    Glad the sockpuppet and poor food is gone.

    We had UDA prime Ribeye with a balsamic, shallot & mushroom reduction. Served with roasted fingerling potatoes, and garlic sautéed spinach.

    Chcken breasts with a rich brown sauce that I invented for myself.... based on beef stock, hoisin sauce, hot sesame oil... it has a bit of a spicy tang to it.

    I have become quite fond of a potato cast iron /oven dish you posted much earlier in this thread. That is just one of the many tasty ideas I have plucked off this thread!

    Thanks. I'm still strictly an amateur, and not everything I come up with is a hit... although I can modestly boast that my holiday brisket gets rave reviews from the entire family. SWMBO loved the sauce on the chicken... but complained that the breasts were a bit overdone. Can't get it right every time.

    I'll post this in a couple other places. I signed up for Sitka Salmon Shares, a community-supported fishery. They run a fishermen's co-op and pack and ship monthly shares of the catch. You can choose all salmon, all whitefish or a premium mix of fish, shellfish, etc. Each share and portion is labeled with the name of the boat that made the catch. On their website, you can look up each craft and get info on the skipper, crew, homeport, etc.



    The share box is packed with dry ice inside a larger insulated shipping box, so the fish arrives hard-frozen.

    Years ago, I spent a month in Sitka. A board member of the arts group that sponsored my residency was head of the Sitka Seafood Co-op, so I arranged to buy fish direct, mostly frozen whole salmon, halibut, halibut cheeks, etc. But FedEx is unreliable hereabouts, and a 60 lb. box of fish spent a weekend in their warehouse and came to me thawed (ugh!)

    So, I was glad to find a reliable co-op source for Alaska seafood.

    When we had to evacuate for a forest fire, the service reps got our September shipment delayed and stored in their stateside freezer. On our October delivery date, we also got the September share in the same box.



    At a bit over USD $25 per pound, it does cost more than what we'd get on sale at the local market, but the quality is much higher. I'm also happy to support a local fishing fleet rather than Chinese fish pirates operating under false labels: a surprising amount of fish labeled "Alaska Wild-Caught" has a line of small print: product of China.

    Since vacuum-packed fish keeps well in our chest freezer, we've got enough salmon for next year, so I'm pre-ordering a whitefish share (sablefish/black cod, Pacific cod, black rockfish, halibut, and lingcod) for 2021. Pre-orders placed before midnight Sunday get a discount.

    Plans are - new place or old - for a cover. The temperature doesn't become prohibitive for a while, but I get soggy enough without standing in it to grill.
