We had "bachelor surprise". This time it was ground pork fried with onions, brown basmati rice, "Asian stir fry mix", seasoned with tamari and sesame seeds. Then, we tried additions of some of the samples of hot sauce from my friend's company, Peppermaster Hot Sauces

We are taking notes about the various hot sauces.

We leave for MA tomorrow, so it was clear out the leftovers tonight. Now the fridge is empty... and we aren't!

Bahn Mi sandwiches here tonight.
Lot's of groaning and moaning going on as we always really enjoy the combination of flavors, and thanks to Chef John for teaching me how to make them perfectly.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.

SO and I had lunch with my sister. We really had a lot to eat so there was no interest in dinner. I had a dish of vanilla bean ice cream later on.

Mom had Dr appointment yesterday and we paid bills afterwards, so we stopped and got our Chinese for the month. Mom had shrimp fried rice, and I had General Tso's shrimp and shrimp fried rice lunch combo meal.

Last night I had a bunch of greens I wanted to use in something, and also lot of basil I wanted to use. I thought about an Indian dish I made a while back, in which the greens were briefly steamed, then liquefied in a blender, and used as part of the cooking liquid for lentils. So I did this, but making it Italian flavored. Except for microwaving the greens, the entire dish was made in the Instant Pot. Some Italian sausages, browned, then steamed, while preparing the other ing. The steamed greens were liquified with a handful of basil, and some fresh marjoram. I cooked some onion and bell peppers in some olive oil a few minutes, then a lot of garlic, briefly, with some chopped anchovies, and several fresh bay leaves, followed by a 6 oz can of tomato paste. Then I added the greens, washed out the VM container with enough water for the 1 c each of kamut and puy lentils. I added enough fish sauce to make the water salty enough, added some crushed red peppers, some rehydrated dried eggplant, and pressure cooked the mix for 12 min., letting the pressure release 10 min. Added the cut up sausage, about ¼ c more chopped basil, simmered a few more min., and it turned out great. Added some more basil when served. Reheated well, for breakfast this morning!
