Ouch! I can imagine the pain of chilli all over the place.

I'm making Teochew porridge with carrots and chicken fingers today.

So you're saying I should blame the Dark Side for this? NEVER!!! I have dedicated myself to following their teachings! I even deny you cookies in their name in my signature!

Thankfully the chiles washed out easy enough - no harm done, though I did spend a couple minutes loudly expressing myself through obscenities and casting dubious aspersions on my own sanity and purity of character- although thanks @Bellasaurus - the milk thing helped! I wouldn't have thought of that!

Didn't really want anything spicy for dinner tonight (can't imagine why) so it was a fairly level-headed potato-and-onion soup for me. Still tasty though- and perfect for using up leftovers! Got rid of the last of the kale and the leeks, a few bits of onion and some buttermilk that were only a day or two away from going bad, lots of spices I have too much of, and now I have lunch for a few days all set up!

Chili - and I loved every bite of it, because I love chili. It's one of those things I could eat every week and never get sick of.
I'm running out of things to cook for just 2 people though! The day after I went shopping one of the boys went to his cousin's (where he's been for a whole week now) and I had shopped for 3/4 people. Thawing "just enough" of something isn't really an option because then I'll end up with *not enough. Grocery money only goes so far, ya know? So we've been eating whatever I can find. BUT!! I did get some chicken breasts that I can grab just 2 of.. so chicken tomorrow. Yay!

*Yeah, that sounds like kind of backwards thinking- I'd end up with extras instead of not enough. But then I'd have to buy extra to make those extras into a meal. So it'd cost more in the long run. Confused yet? Trust me when I say you'd never want to go grocery shopping with me. You'd really get confused then.

My sister gave me a Gourmet Hamburger recipe book for xmas and I tested out a recipe.
Hamburgers aren't really a thing over here (besides fast food chains) and I didn't quite realize how quick and multitasking you have to be if you want all the ingredients hot, crisp and on point at the same time!
I made regular beef patties topped with goat cheese and arugula in whole-grain homemade buns (and now I know how to make super soft bread!) seasoned with a red-wine and onion sauce. They were lovely!

Me, me, me against them, me against enemies, me against friends, somehow they all seem to become one, a sea full of sharks and they all smell blood.

Brandy-marinated pork chop, topped with caramelized apples and red onions in a butter/brown sugar glaze, with mashed sweet potatoes and walnuts, white zinfandel to drink, and a maple crumb-cake for dessert.

I feel like I need to add another side to this though... squash would be appropriate, except I don't actually like squash... hmmm... Well, the sweet potatoes will take a while, I'll have to see what I feel inspired by!

Vegetarian Haggis - it's that time of year

Actually, for that matter, I was tasting some single malt and made coffee in the same cup with a small amount of the scotch in it. That was very tasty!

Dijon-and-bread-crumb-crusted Atlantic salmon steak, spinach fettuccine in a light cream sauce, mixed veggies (yeah, just frozen, but the meal looked too small otherwise), and a caesar salad with grape tomatoes from my friend's greenhouse, with a glass of Chardonnay alongside. I'm particularly happy with this one since I don't usually do particularly well with seafood, and the salmon turned out delicious!

Pancakes. My mom keeps telling me that she's planning on pancakes for supper. I kept thinking "Oh, that sounds good". And they were. I even cooked some apples to serve on top- I made those a bit too sweet though. Grrr. Still..pancakes!

The only thing left is to call my mom and ask her to guess what we had for supper, lol.

Turkey stroganoff! So good! I added the last ofnmy snow peas to it, cut into really thin slivers. It paired really well with the turkey. I ran out of egg noodles, and all I had was whole wheat capelini, but it still made Eve happy.

Tonight I'll make caldo de pollo -- it's tasty chicken-and-vegetable soup. I start from a recipe for caldo Tlalpeņo, but tone down the spiciness.

But next, I want to learn Nymp's turkey stroganoff!

Tlalpeņo becomes fun to say once you've practiced a little. My spell-checker still rejects it. It also complains about stroganoff. Spell-checkers must not eat very well. More for the rest of us
