What's for Dinner, Fri., June 11, 2021

I'm having barbecued shrimp that was sent home with me from last night's shore dinner. Hoisin sauce for the shrimp. That and corn on the cob. Potato salad with dill.

Dessert: strawberry mochis.

To drink, ginger ale and pomegranate juice.

1. Major score on the shrimp! Congrats! I'm making a pseudo chili

Just quick and easy. Chorizo, hot Rotel tomatoes, fancy dark red kidney beans. Will enjoy with low carb bread and butter. Wine or cocktails of some kind.

3. Leftover salmon

TJ is working so FLFC will be my dinner partner tonight.

For me:
baked salmon
green beans with bacon bits
corn on the cob
garden salad with leaf lettuce TJ brought home from a friend's garden. Lots of broccoli in it!

For FLFC I have a number of options besides treats and dog food:

baked chicken thigh with lots of skin - skin is the best part according to him
pork/beef meat balls (chopped)

I can never guess what he'll decide to eat from day to day.

I'll offer him apple slices and watermelon after his meat course.

5. I think it's going to be a "fend for yourself" night

I was going to make a stir-fry, but I just don't feel like doing much of anything.

11. Just me...as I am at the Austintown house ...which we sold! We are waiting for closing...

The insurance company won't insure us if I leave early...so I had Frozen pizza doctored up like you do... gluten-free version. And it was quite good.

6. Same steak stir-fry but with noodles in lieu of brown rice

Dessert is watermelon, pureed, rind and all.

I'm trying to make food a happy part of the day.

17. I Just Did That Wednesday

Good frozen pizza (local to Chicago market).
I put sliced Roma tomatoes, cremini mushrooms (soaked in Chianti), shallots, and minced red bell pepper.
Drizzled olive oil, then added more grated mozzarella & ribbon parmesano.
When done, ground park & red pepper flakes.
Came out good!

15. Gourmet Egg Salad

Hear me out on this.

Perfectly boiled eggs. Egg slicer made them into eighths.
A melange of Hellman's mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, horseradish, chopped fresh dill and chives, and pickle relish.
Gently combined.

So good that Dean & DeLuca would be selling it for $12.99 a pound.

16. Here's What I Made

Pan seared (hot!) chicken breast with sauteed bell pepper & onion.
Seasoned with minced garlic, black & red pepper, salt, paprika, 5 spice, lemon juice & zest, a pinch of soy sauce & 6 ounces on PINO grigio.
When the sauce reduced (viscosity of gravy), I piled the veggies on the chicken, and put in a 170 oven for 10 minutes.
It came out super tender, but juicy. So easy to dry out white meat.
The side was a rice pilaf with brandy, pepper, nutmeg, salt & a pinch of raw sugar.
No dessert, though.
My wife really loved it.
I cook 2 or 3 times a week. I'm very adventurous with herbs & spices. And use wines & liquors in nearly everything.
