What are you eating Tuesday July 2, 2019?

DD's are going to the movies for an early evening showing.
Hub & DD #1 will probably have a sub or something.
I will have something small.
The plan is that DD #2 & I will be having homemade naan and butter chicken (depending on if I get to D Mart to pick up the spices needed) when she gets home from the movie.
But plans may change.


July 2nd

I've got enough cherry tom's to make my first lentil salad of the season! Something that I make countless times every summer, and I already have the chana dal in the IP, slow cook mode, to get it to just the right texture. The original recipe calls for 2 c halved cherry tom's, but I always add at least 3 c - hard to have too many!

Chef John's Big Fat Greek Grilled Chicken on the charcoal Weber, orzo, and a house salad. I'm making some tzatziki to go along with it.

We had chicken salad sandwiches with Boston lettuce. That was delicious.

This was really good - exceeded expectations, and I have high expectations of Chef John. I cooked the leg quarters to 190F, and they were still so moist, and packed with flavor. Definitely in the summer rotation.

I cubed some pork sirloin steak and cooked it with onions and mushrooms in a gravy. Roasted brussels sprouts accompanied the pork.

Thanks for the reminder and review. I saved this a while ago and forgot about it. I'm going to put it on the meal plan for next week.

And, later we had strawberries with crème Chantilly (sweetened whipped cream). I got the strawberries in today's produce basket. They were sooooo good.

I made that lentil salad, when I finally got in today. I halved (or cut larger ones smaller) over a quart of cherry tomatoes for it - always the first thing when I get this much of a harvest! I also sampled the 6 varieties I cut up for it, as I was preparing them! I made a recipe and a half, and called a friend, who loves the stuff, and told him that I have just under 4 quarts leftover, so I should have some leftover, even if he gets here late tomorrow.

DH: Is it Easter?
Moi: No Dear, it just looks like it on a plate
DH: MMM! and thank you for making it easier for me to eat!
(his dominate left hand is still out of commission, so I'm cutting everything up for him as I plate up )

Good looking meals!

I wasn't very hungry, the fridge is almost empty, and I didn't want to go shopping. So, I grazed tonight.

Sweet and sour seitan.

I was frying up some small pieces with batter for popcorn chickun. My wife tasted one and wanted Tangsuyuk.

She told me that the sauce was great (pineapple juice is key) and the seitan with breading was just like beef.
