What are you eating Monday July 22, 2019?

Food shopping day. Out of house at 6:15am (80F and humid) before it heated up. I hit ShopRite & Trader Joe's.

Brunch was rotisserie chicken, stuffed grape leaves, feta cheese chunks and peach slices.

Scrolling through Twitter this morning, I came across a recipe that looked good. I clicked on it and started to read it when I realized it looked familiar. I went to my recipe/poultry folder and realized I had four other copies of the exact same recipe. Clearly I didn't need another copy. I deleted all but one copy of the recipe, printed it out and grabbed a package of boneless skinless chicken thighs out of the freezer.

The recipe is for Sambal Chicken Skewers (Bon Appettit/Epicurious) and it still sounds good. I'll report back to let you know if my years long fascination with this recipe was actually worth it.

I'm making some whole wheat bread so decided on pizza. With green peppers, cooked onions, pineapple, black olives, mushrooms, a fennel tomato sauce on the bottom and a no-cheeze sauce on the top.

I picked up a couple of thick bone-in pork chops, which I will sous vide at 140 (per seriouseats). Rain is in the forecast for dinner time, so I'll set up the propane burner in the garage and sear them in a CI skillet, keeping the mess out of the kitchen. Sides will be pasta salad and a house salad.

I'll be doing a Hot Bacon/Shrimp Asparagus Salad based on this recipe from Taste of Home.

UPDATE!: This recipe is really good.SO and I both liked it a lot. It's super simple to make.

I tend to go with 145 for BI pork chops sous vide. The texture doesn't seem quite right at lower temperatures, at least to me. Let us know how they turn out!

First run of Homemade Chicken Mei Fun. Was good but needs a little tweaking.

I had another airline meal for dinner. They called it beef short ribs, but I know what short ribs look like, at it is not what was on my plate. It was kind of a beef puck of some sort. It had fake grill marks on it -- not kidding. It's like they used a stencil and edible spray paint.
