Tonight's dinner was a joint effort of penne with a sauce made with beef stock and red wine reduction, with pancetta, mushrooms, sage, rosemary, butter, Parm R, and pasta water. I told Craig I'd happily pay for that dish in a restaurant.

We ordered Indian food for delivery. Mains were chicken tikka, chicken korma, and lamb Madras, those came with roti (a type of whole wheat flat bread). The appies were lamb samosas, onion bhajis, and aloo tikki. There are lots of leftovers, as planned. That was really good and I wish I wasn't too stuffed to have some more - maybe a bit later tonight. Oh, and I cooked some brown basmati rice to go with supper.

I've been thinking about my basic tomato sauce. Wondered if it could be better. Did some looking around and ended up at my favorite food site, seriouseats.com

I tried their recipe for Quick and Easy Italian-American Red Sauce. It is quick and easy and delicious.

I had a turkey breast that was nearing 6 months in the freezer, so I really wanted to get it cooked. I tried my instant pot! Seasoned the exterior, browned it first, then settled it on top of a mirepoix, and cooked at 6 minutes/lb. I was very pleased with how it came out. I put it in the toaster oven broiler for 5 minutes for additional browning, but regretted that. It didn't add that much flavor, and dried out some of the outer layer. Now, leftovers.

I cleaned out my fridge. Cabbage, carrots, onion, potato, and sausage. Spices were a bit of turmeric, cumin, salt and pepper. It was surprisingly tasty, but I do not feel the sausage gave it anything extra. Perhaps just this sausage, which was a bit of smoked sausage.

My breakfast and dinner was some of that leftover Thai Curry. My cooking for the day was pickling some of those cukes, and seasoning them with some dill and some of those garlic scapes. And, of course, a few hot peppers.

My Aunt requested a diabetic friendly (sugar free) stir fry. And this is what I came up with. Each serving has 8 net grams of carbs.

To clarify the picture is 2 servings served over riced cauliflower, that is not calculated in the carb count.

Great looking/sounding dinners tonight.


Here's the pictures with even the debris plate for the wonderful seafood dinners.

I grocery shopped today, so I had some haddock fried while I shopped the second store. Sides were some one-foot-in-the-disposal veggies that were not photo worthy but completely edible, and cheesy bread stix from Aldi. Dessert was an orange creamsicle. I felt like a kid again!
