A version of poutine. There was some sous vide London broil in the freezer, so I chopped that up and put the liquid in with some purchased gravy. Craig made the ATK oven fries that use a cornstarch slurry. We used fresh moz since the grocery didn't have any curds or farmer's/fresh cheese. It was pretty good. Definitely makes nice comfort food.

I fixed the skillet baked chicken Andy gave a link to recently, mashed potatoes with the butter used to bake the chicken, and fresh asparagus. Needed space in the freezer so finished some vanilla ice cream and ricotta cheese chocolate muffins.

Picked up a rally nice steak the other day. Cooked it SV to 130ºF and seared it on the charcoal chimney. Delicious!

Tried some sausages that are new to us. It's a brand we regularly buy, but it was a substitution in a grocery order. We got "roasted French onion" instead of the hot Italian that they were out of. They were good, but not nearly as good as the Italian sausages. I served that with the last of the macaroni salad, some potato salad, the leftover dolmadakia, and pickles.

I picked up a couple of appetizers and an order of "Dynasty Shrimp" from our favorite Thai restaurant on the way home from running errands.

I threw together a one dish meal in the Instant Pot - a gumbo style dish, with some of the same seasonings that I put in jambalaya, but without the shrimp, and some whole wheat and channa dal added, in place of the usual white rice. I had a 10 oz pack of turkey kielbasa, which I used in place of the ham or andouille, and I added some chipotle, for more of that smoky flavor. I had a large bell pepper, that I had to use, plus the usual onion, garlic, and celery, plus thyme, bay, and cloves, for seasoning, then cooked about 7 or 8 minutes in the olive oil, in sauté mode. Then I added a cup each of kamut and channa dal, and 5 c water, salt to taste, and set it on slow cook/high mode for 4 hours - default time, but it needed about 1/2 hr longer. The dal broke down enough to thicken it slightly, and the kamut still had a slight bite to it.

Had breakfast out so, we settled for an Aldi frozen tomato/spinach pizza w/garlic cream sauce. Cooked in the A/f.

Bread pudding for dessert.

We smoked a chuck roast last Sunday with onions, bell peppers, jalapeños and garlic and a sauce made with stout beer. It makes a large amount, so we had some leftovers last night, served over rice noodles with a garden salad.
