DD is going to pick up the new steak bowl from Chipotle for us to try. We’ll split that along with salsa, guacamole and chips. If I don’t like it there’s chili or chicken soup I can have.

Tonight I was the sous-chef for Stirling. He made a Danish dish called biksemad. It's a traditional hash of already cooked meat (usually pork, which this was), potatoes, onions, and bacon, topped with one fried egg per person and a big sprinkle of chopped parsley. It is traditionally served with pickled beets, so we had some of those too. Definitely comfort food and I ate too much.

I made a one dish meal in the Instant Pot tonight, sort of - started it yesterday, cooking 1 1/2 c dried chickpeas, to have them ready for today. I made sort of a chole masala, but with a bunch of vegetables added, not just the chickpeas. I put the last of my eggplants and okra, and almost the last of my Thai red long beans, plus a diced up green bell pepper. I also took most of the tomatoes I had, and made a purée, of maybe 3 cups, and cooked it down, with the rest of the vegetables, before adding the chickpeas. This mix was pressure cooked for just 3 minutes, then last, tempered with the tarka (not traditional, but I like this in many things, with those curry leaves), and a little cilantro stirred in.
