This week in the kitchen

Monday/21-Aug-17: Early meal today. Took the meat from the freezer fairly early to start it thawing.After a couple of hours, I sliced it and put it to marinate for Hunan Beef with Cumin (web; cookbooker). Used three teaspoons for chili flakes, taking the middle line in the two to four option. This was yummy, hot and tasty. Served with plain rice and Steamed Eggplant (Kuo, p402; cookbooker). The eggplant was easy and delicious; it went really well with the beef. We ate well.

Tuesday/22-Aug-17: Ate out with Patrice and Wim this evening. Nothing happened in the kitchen.

Wednesday/23-Aug-17: Forgot to heat up the (store-bought) egg rolls with Monday's dinner so we had those for lunch

Pizza out with some of the Montbron choir. Nothing further happened in the kitchen.

Thursday/24-Aug-17: Woke up really tired today and didn't go to the Charroux LitFest. Ed was also tired. We thought it must have been something in the pizzas last night. :-)

Dinner was some bean chili from the freezer with Cayenne Cornbread (BigGerman, p182). The bread machine really isn't happy and needs to be helped along for the first bit of kneading. All was good.

Yogurt on overnight.

Friday/25-Aug-17: Shopping today.

For dinner I broiled some lieu noir backs, sprinkled with Penzey's Sonoran Spicemix. Didn't like this as well as the Southwest Mix from last week. And some trio rice. And roasted the last of some broccoli and the first of a chou romaneso. Then a simple salad. Then some prune-filled cake. We're full.

Saturday/26-Aug-17: Well, I didn't make fresh past today; may not make it for this month. We had store-bought tagliatelle with Fettuccine with Chicken Livers, Tomatoes, and Bacon (365Pasta, p92; cookbooker). Then a salad. We were full.

Sunday/27-Aug-17: Early meal today. We had Garlicky Shrimp and Chicken Kebabs with Tomato-Kumquat Salsa (web). Made for four; Ed managed to eat two persons worth, I didn't keep my my end. Served with Moroccan couscous, a mix we bought at the health food store a couple of weeks ago. This was really good with the delicious salsa. We also had corn on the cob, and impulse buy on Friday.

Progress on goals
