Winner, winner Monday dinner, 8-21-17

I was looking for recipes using the black cumin/nigella seeds that Craig bought and found https://www.gousto.co.uk/cookbook/ch...-chicken-salad. I made a couple of changes, used currants instead of the sultanas, and I added some fresh garlic and ginger, sautéed just a bit in vege oil, to the rice, then cooked it. Craig added more of the homemade mango chutney to his salad, it was a bit spicy. He also wanted some extra yogurt for his naan, but I had already used what we had making marinade for butter chicken later in the week. This was really good and we'll make again.

Looks delicious, Med!

I had planned to grill a Tri Tip tonight, but it was raining hard. So I did it in the sous vide and finished on the stovetop. The side is cauliflower "veggie tots."

Jeannie had a craving for linguica...
Picked up a loaf of soft white Wonder bread, lathered it with mayo, placed a thick slice of sweet red onion on top of the browned linguica and made Jeannie very happy...

Pudding later...

Man, great looking and sounding dinners tonight.

It was hot and humid today, so we had a light early dinner in which we all pitched in before football practice. Imade seared Ahi tuna steaks the were sprinkled with black sesame seeds, DW made a steamed veggie mix, and my boy made dippung sauces for the tuna of a wasabi mayo, and a peanut/soy/garlic sauce.

I picked up my dinner for work on the way in: Chicken chow mein, boneless ribs, and veggie spring rolls.

Neighbors, including next door who hosted the event, went mushroom hunting today. Found 10 pounds of porcini's. Here's some photos of the feast.

I traded some of my backyard cayenne peppers for some jalapeños from a neighbor's garden. I stuffed them with a mix of cream cheese and shredded cheddar, beer-battered them, and fried them. They were HOT, but also had good flavor to them.

I had some fresh fruit for "desert" to "cool down."
