Sunday's Fixings - 2014-12-07

I was going to make a big pot of chili and cornbread today, but checked out the fridge and freezer real estate, and I won't have room for leftovers. So checked and I have everything except asparagus for this:

Okonomiyaki

I'll swap some green beans or broccoli for the asparagus. Probably add a side of refried rice. Going for something easy today. Got lots of "around the house projects" on the agenda.

Having a big dinner here for 6 eaters. Roasted turkey, green beans, a selection of potatoes of unknown making, more on that later, guacamole, tortillas, cherry pie a la mode. I had thought I was making mashed potatoes but that unknowingly morphed into baked potatoes, with baked sweet potatoes.

We're having some friends over for drinks and appys late this afternoon so dinner for us will be just that. I may be up to sneaking in a dessert during the late football game.

I'm experimenting with a couple of baked chicken cordon bleu breasts that I'd vac-packed and frozen last month. I'm sous viding them, sort of, in simmering water in the sealed vac-pack. We might have some TJ's fried rice alongside, with some boiled and mashed turnips.

We're treating ourselves tonight to bacon wrapped Filet Mignon done red (not purple) rare in a CI pan with sides of my rice pilaf and steamed broccolini.

He's not the only one--Japanese was on the menu here today. Only because I had all the ingredients and had forgotten to take any meat out of the freezer for the chili I had thought I'd make (before realizing I had no freezer real estate for any leftovers).

Not the greatest picture. I ended up using some lobster meat that was in the freezer, a baby leek, some grated carrot, horseradish and the usual, with a side of Japanese noodles liberally sprinkled with Japanese 7 spice and a side of green beans with grated lemon zest. Water for me, beer for the DH. It was really good and easy once I had the ingredients mise-en-place. I am SO stuffed.
