What I had for dinner on Friday, August 3, 2012

Mostly-homegrown party time! By “party” I mean just me and G. having dinner as usual.

Kitsap-grown flank steak, from our freezer cow (thanks cow), more or less following the Simply Recipes version.

OK, I typed the above nine days ago, and I don’t remember what all I was planning to say. But I suspect that [...]

We had a difficult-yet-good couples therapy appointment from 4:30-5:30. I suggested we walk around the block afterwards and then after that I thought maybe we should go on a small date. We ended up at the counter of Hitchcock again, where we each had a Hitchcock Martini (this month it’s gin, cardamom bitters, and some [...]

Crock pot meal!

On Wednesday I thawed a roast of some kind, sliced it, and browned it in a hot pan. I threw it in the crock pot with a baggie of frozen B.I. Farms corn, some frozen roasted homegrown tomatoes, chopped frozen Leapfrog Farm celery, two minced homegrown pickled jalapeƱos, some homemade chicken stock, [...]

We went out to the pub to meet friend K. who was an intern at Laughing Crow last year, and who we have barely seen since the season ended. It was good to hang out even though I was totally exhausted for some reason.

I had pub sloppy joes. They use grass-fed beef for everything [...]

Roast beef sandwiches! Made from the prime rib roast from Tuesday, sliced on our new meat slicer which is somewhat inexplicably available at Zappos, and which is cheap but awesome. With Tillamook cheddar cheese and some random storebought horseradish, on Macrina herb rolls. (I didn’t check the ingredients until I got home, but the herbs [...]

A prime rib roast from our 2010 cow, which I found in the bottom of the freezer while spelunking for duck the other day, cooked according to this guy’s method. OH MY GOD so good. I owe this guy five bucks or something. So so so good. Please go make this. It was amazing.
I have [...]

We had intended to have carnitas (it’s a theme) but then friend Shannon found that there were no tickets for West Side Story on Thursday, which we had been planning, so if we wanted to go we had better go today (Tuesday). So we did; G. met us in town at Le Pichet for dinner, [...]

Leftover French dips.

What I had for dinner on Tuesday, December 27, 2011

French dip sandwiches! Made in the crock pot! Extremely loosely based on this recipe, but actually very different.

We used a top round steak (really mostly a roast), and instead of Lipton Onion Soup Mix (?!?!?!!) we ground up some dehydrated onion combined with homemade celery salt (dehydrated celery leaves crunched up and mixed 1:1 [...]

Chicken fried steak!! Kitsap-grown top round steak, dredged in homegrown duck eggs and homemade/homegrown goat milk whey (left over from a cream cheese attempt), then in organic Utah flour, homegrown cayenne, and regular S&P. Loosely following this Serious Eats recipe for the steak breading, at least.

G. also made gravy with Butler Green Farms pork breakfast [...]
