Dinner Friday, May 24, 2019 ~ Let the Holiday Weekend begin!

We're starting out the weekend with leftovers. I seem to have a number of food containers with just that, plus tubs and bags of items that are taking up more fridge real estate than they are entitled to. We'll clean out the last of the tuna salad and last night's pasta-sausage-chard dish. Salads, too, to get rid of some of those aforementioned tubs and bags.

What's planned for your evening meal tonight?

I got a new little 4 cup Cuisinart FP because my huge one is too big and hard to clean.
I'm putting it to use today with Chef John's Shrimp Toast. We'll have big beautiful steamed artichokes along with it.

We had to make a Costco stop today so dinner was rotisserie chicken and pasta salad.

DH went golfing tonight and he's picking up the sampler platter from the Middle Eastern restaurant downtown.

We ordered from Mr. Falafel. A chicken platter for DH and a falafel platter for me. It was, as usual, excellent. I have to talk to them about their pickled peppers though. Sometimes they are lovely. Sometimes they are bitter. I think the nice tasting ones are lactic acid fermented. They tend to be on the salty side. I think the other ones are commercially made with vinegar and sodium bisulfate (bisulfite?). I know that preservative tastes bitter to me. Today it was so bad that I had to spit out the tiny test bite. I joked, "Give me some dandelion greens to get this bitter taste out of my mouth."

The Shrimp Toast was delicious, but I made the mistake of using dark soy sauce instead of regular. I won't do that again, as the shrimp paste appears to be burned but it's not. The presentation would have been much better with regular soy sauce. Now I know for the next time.

I need to get a little food processor just for this recipe, Kay. I watched the video, and wow does that ever look and sound delicious.
