We could have said we ate vegetarian tonight...if it wasn't for that yummy ham.

Not much of a beer person, though it would have gone well with what I had tonight.

The first thing that came to my mind when I saw peanut butter was satay! So that's what I made - using some more of that stuff from the freezer. I had some chopped up spareribs - something I do for my Chinese dishes, but I figured I'd use those (I'm trying to use the oldest things first). I cooked them under pressure in the IP for 15 min., let it reduce naturally for 10 min., then manually reduced the pressure (not much there). They were just the right tenderness, but not falling apart.

I'll post the full recipe tomorrow - too late now, and I'm mis-typing a lot, telling me it's time to go to bed! lol

Here are the finished ribs, the sauce, and some stir-fried bok choy, with some nam prik pao (something I have to make more of):

Yup, beets with a generous grating of nutmeg. Carrots got lots of Aleppo pepper, potatoes were covered with The Spice House's "Back of the Yards" blend...and the beans were plain, buttered. And as far as I'm concerned, it doesn't have to be a "holiday" to eat like this. Heck, I'm beginning to think that any day I get out of bed is a reason to celebrate. Besides, everything went into the oven except for the beans. Economy of energy.

Great looking and sounding dinners!

Souschef (the man who keeps me a happy cook) said I outdid myself again tonight.
The brats were browned well, then left on a bed of cabbage, onion and apples to steam with wine till cooked. In the mean time, I boiled and smashed tiny white potatoes, and roasted them off in the super hot oven with reserved duck fat from the Christmas ducks. I wish the colorless picture captured how good it all tasted together.
