Shutdown Saturday Dinner - 1/20/2018

The Gummint may be shut down, but my kitchen is open for business. I'll be on a conference call during a good chunk of dinner prep time, so it's a slow cooker night. Mediterranean chicken thighs, served over brown rice in the Zoji, roasted cauliflower. I browned the chicken and sauteed the onions in the slow cooker, and then switched over to slow cook mode for the duration.

We were having pork chops with mushroom & onion gravy, mashed taters and steamed veggies. Both of us are feeling under the weather so I have put some chicken bones in the Instant Pot for broth and then will make chicken soup.

Last year we went several times to Chili's before our beekeepers' association meeting (DH wants to join a different group this year). I'm working on reproducing the steak with sautéed avocado and grape tomatoes DH would get. I don't really know how the veggies were seasoned. I think I'll hit them with some salt and Penzeys Arizona Dreaming and cook them in the cast iron skillet after searing the porterhouse steak in it. Baked potatoes and homemade bread on the side.

Our dinner tonight was a great improvement over last night. Long story, but high end northern Italian restaurant that USED to be a favorite. Anyway, first course was a crudo, dry packed scallop recipe with citrus/habanero and Annatto oil drizzles, with a south American potato salad. Recipes courtesy of Chef Norman Van Aken. Second course was seared scallops with more potato salad if wanted, I think both of us ended up eating just our scallops for the most part. We had a bottle of Prosecco to go with.

Not put into water and/or a brine, simply packed dry as it comes out of the shell.

OK, thanks. I've never heard packed before. I've only seen dry, day boat, and natural.
