Wow msmofet! Great looking dinner and what a lucky sweet kitty! I went to the grocery store this afternoon to get some kale to add to my corned beef soup and saw some really good looking tri-tip steaks so nabbed some to have dh grill for our dinner. Did some red potatoes with butter, garlic and scallions and steamed some fresh green beans. The corned beef soup will be for another day, maybe lunches.

(The cat is beside himself!! LOL He LOVES chicken raw OR cooked. He is meowing and I swear I can see him trying to figure out how to get up on the counter, remove the bowl with the apples I put on the top of the bowl and the lid.)
That really looks tasty.

My, now departed, cat, Sucha had a special dance she did for chicken. It was pretty funny to watch how excited she would get.

Had two experiments for supper. I never cooked bok choy before. I tried this recipe: Bok Choy With Oyster Sauce Recipe. It was nothing special, but then the bok choy I had in a Chinese restaurant was nothing special. Other folks were more impressed than I was.

I also tried a recipe from a jar of Patak's Kashmiri Masala Paste. That was good enough to try again. I didn't have any meat defrosted except some ground beef. We will try with diced meat next time.

Served with brown basmati rice, pita, and beer. I'm not much of a beer drinker, but it goes well with spicy-hot food.
