8/6/2019 - Farm Worker Appreciation Day Dinner

As foodies, we need to appreciate those who provide the food that we put on the table.

https://whbl.com/podcasts/ag-news-on...reciation-day/



Dinner tonight was cheeseburgers on the grill, potato salad.

I was planning to make Buffalo wings, but I'm not that hungry... yet. Just grazing, for now.

I made a mix of chopped surimi, celery, onion, olives, cucumber and mayo, and had it on a toasted onion bun. It was delish and hit the spot with sliced mango and apple for a side.

...holding my tongue on the vid and pic, so this thread doesn't get moderated or deleted...lol...

Leftovers. After running around all day, I was very glad that I had laid in an inventory of the stuff. Contrary to what Himself might tell you, I do NOT buy "leftovers" in a special grocery department.

I had a small bowl of rigatoni with tomato sauce late afternoon. When DD got home from work we used my new poachers. For large eggs 3:15 makes a perfect poached egg. I had 1 egg and half a toasted English muffin. No pictures. But tomorrow we will probably make eggs benedict. I will get pictures of that.

I picked up stuff for DD to try her hand at making sushi: bamboo rolling mat and rice paddle, seasoned rice vinegar, nori, sesame seeds and avocado. Since this was a first run she opted out of crab and cucumber and just did a basic roll.

They turned out pretty good ... I'm told. I don't eat sushi. I don't like seaweed or crab (I don't care for most fish raw or cooked). I even took a shot at rolling. We'll get better.

California avocado sushi roll. One has spicy mayo added.

We decided to have some dessert. Strawberries and peaches with crème Chantilly and a glass of Porto each. That was really good.

I ate leftovers for breakfast, another sandwich for lunch, and more leftovers for dinner, plus some guacamole (had 3 avocados that I had to use). Still have more leftovers!

I love a good Porto. I prefer bottle aged to barrel aged. I can make a dessert just out of a good vintage Porto.

I don't know much about Porto. I don't even remember the name of the one we have and I don't know if it is bottle or barrel aged. It's just the one our Portuguese friend recommended and it's lovely.

Mostly weigh, occasionally measure, rarely guestimate. The only thing in that last list that wasn't weighed is salt but I know from repeated experiments what my "one finger pinch" weighs so it was a pretty educated guess. I actually cooked twice that amount of vegetables so just halved my weighted quantities.

When I started weighing my food a couple of years ago it seemed a major pain and remember writing that it took longer to log than it did to cook, eat, and clean-up afterward. But it's the only way of managing diet that works for me so I'm stuck with it. Like everything else, it becomes a skill that improves with practice and now adds very little to cooking time.
