    Can I start a new dinner

    thread?

    The local market had fresh salmon steaks on sale, so tonight I made this.

    Miso-Glazed Salmon Steaks Recipe at Epicurious.com

    Oh good lord, it was so yummy. I think next time I'll use filets though.

    Funny, we grilled salmon steaks for Memorial Day. I was surprised John chose them over ribs, and also surprised he chose the steaks over the filets. Miso glaze does sound lovely.

    We had leftover grilled vegetables this week so I tried to make a curry, but it didn't come out right, so I made it into vegetable soup. Added grated parmesan and asked John if he wanted some "Italian roasted vegetable soup." He replied, "You just made that up on the spot didn't you??" He's on to me.

    But it did turn out nice and we both liked it. Nice not having to make separate meat/vegetable meals.

    Earlier, I attempted mayonnaise from scratch, but it came out too runny (think I left the egg whites in last time, dunno if that's what made a difference.)

    Rode my bike to the organic meat store for some flounder. Decided that the "mayo" will be "sauce" for baked flounder instead, with some spices and white wine added, along with mushrooms. For all I know this could be a culinary disaster, but we'll see. It's baking as I type.

    Also made salad and roasted sweet potatoes.

    Cool

    Made steak and shrimp ka-bobs with red onion, green pepper. Marinaded the meat in a mixture of pineapple juice and teriyaki sauce. With season-all on top.

    Corn on the cob, romaine salad, and apple pie for dessert.

    It was wonderful. The marinade is my favorite.

    Oh, I put the pineapple in the grill too. It's wonderful when married up with a piece of meat and a slice of onion.
    To those in uniform, both present and past, who have protected my freedoms, I thank you. I've had a good life so far.

    Yup, and now I'm digesting as I type

    Came out pretty good. What's nice is that the sauce works with the potatoes as well.

    John deemed it "good" (the household equivalent of two Michelin stars, I believe- around here, you'd kill for a "very good," aka third star.)

    I'm being lazy tonight too. Roast pork loin with carrots, potatoes, onions and garlic, steamed cauliflower, fresh baked dinner rolls. I didn't cook a single thing or even offer to help. I did get up and fill my own plate... gonna have to talk to her about that.
    Crusty old farts are people too.

    I need to find a good oven fried chicken recipe. I tried Art Smith's Non-fried fried chicken - it really didn't have much flavor at all. Very surprising, it's marinated in buttermilk with hot sauce, then coated in breadcrumbs mixed with chili pepper, paprika, garlic and onion powder. It was meh. Looked pretty though.

    You might try toasting the breadcrumbs or use panko bread crumbs and toast them. I do this per a Cooks Illustrated Recipe for reduced fat chicken parmesan. Not as cook as the real thing obviously but I found that toasting the breadcrumbs did help some.

    Tonight's dinner was some fairly healthy quesadillas. Browned up some corn, onions and bell peppers, added a can of black beans, some smoked chicken, fajita seasoning and some smoked jalapeno sauce. Use the 'balanced carb' tortillas with just a bit of 2% reduced fat cheese. Planned on having a side of guacamole with it, but of course they weren't even close to being ripe yet.
