Made dinners for a while on the weekend.
One pot of Borscht soup
One pot of Tom Yum Soup
60 meat (ground beef) empanadas
40 ham/cheese empanadas
around 100 Chipa (if you know Chipa, about half argentinian style, half brazilian).
My wife makes empanadas from time to time, we love them, beef, cheese, ham, even with an egg inside.
Yep our meat ones are ground beef, onion, green pepper, and egg. She is Paraguayan so it's a staple food
Another day in the 50’s yesterday, so I declared it burger night.
Looks yummy. Grilled?
Hmmm. Shaved ribeye on sale at Giant. What could I make with that?
Snowing all day since 11AM. Supposed to snow until 6AM mañana. Poor man's Mac-n-Cheese or Cacio e Pepe'.
Well, you COULD HAVE made a Philly cheesesteak. But what you made looks okay, too....
Was out of Cheez-Whiz
A nice midweek splurge. For once, I didn't get the almost-rib-chops, I ponied up for the actual lamb rib chops. Dry-brined and seared hard, served with a garlic/thyme/butter/beef stock pan sauce. Also had a broccoli/arugula puree with lemon juice, and Swiss chard braised in ho-made chix stock with coriander. Perhaps the star of the show was mushroom risotto (made with carnaroli rice, slightly better than arborio), with sauteed shallots and portobellos, made with ho-made beef stock, lots of parmigiano reggiano, and topped off with truffle oil. Yum!
All of this was washed down with a Columbia Crest H3 Merlot.
Well, not exactly for dinner but for the games this Sunday. I made "Rocky's Two Hander" chili and will give it a couple of days to marinate.
Nice! A miserable day expected here tomorrow and I'm planning some Chili myself.
When I first got married I was bragging to my wife about how good my chili was. Well she made hers before I had a chance to make mine. When I started eating it she said I had this disgusting look on my face. But before she said anything I said "yours is better then mine". I never made it again.
Your story is funny no matter what, but I gotta know: was yours actually better than hers (and you were disgusted by her chili), or was hers truly better than yours (and you were disgusted by that fact)?
Hers was truly better then mine and to this day the best I ever had. I was just disappointed that I didn't make the best chili. I would compare chili to Chardonnay, there are so many different style choices with both.
My mother was not the best cook kin the world, which was hard on my father as his mother was a wonderful cook. The only thing I ever heard my father say about my mom's coming was, that wasn't my favorite and I don't think you need to make that again. My father was a very smart man, I learned from him.
