Uh, bachelor pad?

image

My mother is supposed to be getting home tonight, and she has the dreaded “airport crud,” so what better way to Elvin her back than a big pot of lentil soup?

In honor of my mother…

My mother who is currently stuck on a 15 hour flight…

Sake and Miso Soup. Or rather, soup with miso in it, I spiced up some ramen noodles with miso paste, leftover steak sliced thin, green onions, mushrooms, and carrots. It’s about as authentic Japanese as Pokemon season 14, but it sure tastes good and that’s what I care about.

Pot steak II

image

Smells most excellent. Took a snitch, and decided it needed a bit more salt. We’ll let it cook a bit more til dinner time, then I’ll take the juice and make gravy for the potatoes.  Meal in a pot, ready to eat–and it only took me 15 minutes to make it this morning, basically to chop the vegetables!

Pot steak

Or so it said on the package.

(Cue stupid “Colorado Pothead” jokes)

Sweet and regular potatoes, onion, and garlic cloves underneath locally grown meat, with carrots, rosemary, thyme, salt, pepper, and my fermented chili flakes on top. Seems like it ought to work.

Check back this evening to see if it turns out! At the very least there ought to be a good gravy cone out of it.

Sardines?

image

Never had sardines, before. Was watching Good Eats the other day and was turned on to the idea.

A can of sardines, and the oil. Some lemon juice. A few “bite size” sweet peppers, a clove of garlic, and a quarter of an onion. Pinch of sea salt, some parsley, and a couple spoons of some sort of fancy organic jalapeno mustard my brother got us for Christmas.  Put it all in the food processor, and add enough olive oil to make it blend up smooth. Eat it on toast (here, everything bread)

Alton Brown is right again!

Chili. With beans, and other stuff

Just in case there’s any Texans reading.

Cornbread gets put into the chili, of course.
