Thursday 8/17/2017 What's on the plate?

I have a doctor appointment this afternoon. I have an Instant Pot Beef Stew or Pot roast planned. It only takes 35 - 45 minutes to cook. So I can wait awhile to start it. I love not having to start this kind of meal hours in advance and babysit the pot on the stove.

Picked up a couple of semi-boneless ribeyes so dinner will be steak, potatoes and a salad.

I have a small Frenched rack of lamb in the sous vide. I'm cooking it from frozen. A new experiment, at least for me.

I made yogurt yesterday. A little different this time. I used 1/2 gallon whole milk and a quart of 1/2 & 1/2. Left it strain for 12 hours in the fridge. These are the results today. It is so thick. Tastes wonderful.

I also made lime curd. Here are some pictures of the lime curd.

Guess I should have pulled up some of the shrimp for the pic. Grits came out absolutely perfect tonight. I could have made a meal out of just them.

I fried some tortillas in the cast iron using veggie oil until they were crispy, then I topped them with some beans, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes. Tostadas. They were yummy.
