5/10/2019 - Friday Dinner

I made a Mediterranean b/s chicken thigh dish in the (gasp!) slow cooker. I browned the chicken in the Cuisinart multi-cooker, then sauteed some onion and garlic. I added some Kalamata and Castelvotrana olives, along with some capers and a sliced lemon, and some chicken stock. After 2-1/2 hours on low I added some sliced roasted red pepper, then cooked it for another hour. It was served over brown rice, with a green salad on the side.


Tasty stuff.

I'm sous viding a london broil (shoulder steak). I'll finish it in a CI skillet. Sides are veggie and buttered noodles.

Not in the mood to cook, but I did bake a loaf of cracked wheat bread. Thinking of making grilled ham and cheese sandwiches.

I wasn't in the mood for cooking. But, I was in the mood for making tuna salad. My tuna salad tends towards equal volumes of tuna, chopped celery, and sliced scallions, so protein and plenty of veg. Supper was tuna salad sandwiches. Mine were on Wasa crispbread, garnished with slices of cucumber. DH's were on whole grain wheat toast, garnished with pea sprouts and Boston lettuce.

It felt like I pulled supper out of a hat.

Not in the mood to cook today either. On the plus side, it rained HARD all night long, and hasn't let up much until a little bit ago. I've had a nice lazy day watching the rain, movies, and snacking. Will probably finish up the rest of the watermelon and have a grilled cheese sandwich here in a few.

That sounds interesting. How long are you going to sous vide it? I am wondering if a long time at a low temparature might help with tenderness. It would be an interesting experiment. Let us know how it turns out.

As for me, I am in Houston, and we went to this mom-n-pop seafood place, where I had some fried catfish. It was excellent! Crispy crust, with a moist and flaky fish inside.

A friend and I went to a local place (guess I wasn't in the mood to cook either) and I got a massive ribeye along with a shared order of cheesy garlic bread and a creme brûlée. I took home most of the steak.

Making beef samosas ATM, assembling shortly, I'll keep some for frying for my tea. Rest going in the freezer. Served with rhaita and date and tamarind chutney.
These really are GOOD! Wife's going out for dinner then a show with her bestie. Home alone.

Had a fabulous chicken breast in the crock-pot today.


Didn't cook very long and was delicious.


Boneless, skinless chicken breast slathered with melted butter, Dijon mustard, lemon juice, crushed rosemary, garlic, some chicken broth. Cook on LOW for 4 hours. Sooo good. We had mashed taters and buttered, steamed green peas as our side.


For dessert we had leftover wedding cake from a wedding we attended last night.
