We had Vietnamese chicken and rice soup. The broth was flavored with ginger, cinnamon sticks, star anise, cloves and fish sauce. The chicken was cooked in the broth and then shredded. It was REALLY good. Garnished were cilantro, green onion, red onion and jalapeno. I skipped the jalepenos. Craig didn't and added sriracha besides.

Great pictures ladies!

I've been marinating some wings in Lawry's Hawaiian with added Sriracha. They'll go on the grill soon, and SC made some quick green salads with lots of leftover grilled veggies. Texas toast for the Souschef.

Pork tenderloin on the grill, Lundberg's wild rice blend enhanced with mushrooms and scallions in the Zoji (wife really likes this), roasted brussel sprouts.

Had an early dinner this afternoon because I had an appointment to take my car in late today, and those trips sometimes take hours. Nothing fancy. Had a pan fried ham steak and some leftover red cabbage from a couple of nights ago.

Ham, scalloped potatoes, mixed veggies. Mom got another clean-plate award.

So far, just some Tostitos and Mateo's hot sauce. This is looking more and more like a "grazing" night by the minute.

Delicious as usual. I finally got some new heat shields for the BBQ because Kayelle wore the others out
I keep track of the pull dates on the wings at the market waiting for them to go to the 50%
off place

I've been in hunt and gathering mode lately. I hunt around the supermarket and decide what to gather for dinner depending on prices, particularly the last day meat bargain section, and deals--stuff that is usually more expensive. (Asparagus is cheap this time of year.)

My dinner:

Pork ribs were on sale, found $10 for a rack that could serve two, cut it in half and vacuum sealed and froze half. Asparigrass on sale: grab! Was intending BBQ sauce but when I got home I found two bottles of sweet, thick soy sauce, decided that would neatly solve the starch problem since soy sauce goes with rice.

So I partly roasted the half rack 325 degrees, poured some of the soy sauce over the ribs, poured the rest of the bottle into the other bottle, had enough time to do my white rice (1-3/4 measures water, 1 measure rice, 17 minutes, don't peek). Meanwhile I julienned and nuked the asparigrass, and voilà, dinner!

The thick, sweet soy sauce is unique, very hard to find even in my big city with our large Asian population. Its thickness is much thicker than ordinary soy sauce, not quite as thick as honey (in fact goes well with honey in marinades) and has a sweet, slightly stronger taste than Kikkoman standard. Try it if you ever find any. Excels in marinades. Suffices as a single sauce over ribs, or chicken. I mix honey, thick soy sauce and minced onions for marinade for salmon or thin pork slices.
