SO has been craving split pea soup. I don't have a ham bone and the market has not had smoked hocks available. So I'm making a half batch of the soup with liquid smoke and a pan seared ham steak I will chop up for the soup. We'll see how it goes.

I pulled a couple of chicken breasts from the freezer last night, transferred them to the fridge to defrost. They're just firm enough that I'll be able to cut in half. I'll be using them for "Moroccan Chicken with Preserved Lemons", but I'll probably substitute Berbere seasoning for the turmeric. I'll serve them over orzo (so much cheaper than couscous, close enough for us) and use up the last of a lonely broccoli crown.

Five Guys, we LOVE them!
We've never tried take out before... does anything get mushy or soggy Dave?

We're having Bacon Cheese Burgers (Avo and Kewpie on mine thanks)
from our own grill and Fries too.

For dessert later, we'll finish off the Chocolate Chip Cookies
with a scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream.
That'll be the last of Cookies until I can Find more Flour,
Which I understand from King Arthur Flour Company that
should be in about 3-4 weeks

We had eggplant parmesan with steamed and buttered purple brussels sprouts, parmesan garlic bread and the last of the "Smurf" cupcakes.

The eggplant and the brussels sprouts were complimets of Misfits Market. I highly recommend them. If you want more information and a discount code please PM me. You won't be sorry.

We had the Italian sausage that I defrosted yesterday. We had it with crispy smashed potatoes and some "enhanced" canned, mixed vegis. The sausage and potatoes were really good. We both had seconds. The vegis, were okay - better than we expected, but kinda mushy. Well, they won't be a favourite, but it's good to know we don't hate them.

I thought it needed more olives. Himself thought it was tasty as is. We both wished there was more broccoli...

Yum. We had eggplant parmesan and steamed brussels sprouts, all from the bounty of Misfits Market.

The eggplant, I thought, was a bit on the small side but it made enough to have another leftover meal. The brussels sprouts were enough for one meal but needed some work.

Finished the Smurf cupcakes. See "Today's Funny" for an explanation.

I made a batch of mushroom barley soup in the IP tonight, with no meat, but I did use chicken broth. I used some of those frozen cremini mushrooms, I prepared, when I stocked up when Aldi had them a few weeks ago. I also added a small amount of yellow miso - something that adds great flavor to mushroom soups. I first cooked the mirepoix, with a small chopped leek added, plus some garlic and rosemary added at the end. I used 3/4 c pearl barley, plus 1/3 c toor dal (only used this because it emptied the jar - usually, I'd use red lentils or moong dal), to add some more thickness to it, along with protein. I pressure cooked it 20 minutes, let the pressure release naturally, then added the thawed, browned mushrooms (it was good before the mushrooms were added!), and simmered 10 min. on the high slow cook, to blend the flavors. Garnished with a little chopped parsley.

Scored some Poblano peppers at the grocers. Couldn't believe it as we never have had them out here.

Last two nights -

Chicken Cheesy Stuffed Polanos on rice. Delish!

You need to keep the bag open and take the napkins off the top of everything in the bag. That will stop the fries from getting soggy. Otherwise the food travels okay.
