Marinade for the latter was a Jagermeister and Black Cherry/Blueberry blend.

^That's funny. I'm heading out of town, so we're trying to empty the pantry, fridge & freezer as much as possible, leading to odd combos like last night's - salad with homemade strawberry balsamic vinaigrette, chicken soup and beef tacos.

That is an odd combo. But sounds good at the same time.

Thanks! I go on a leftover eating bender before traveling. I hate coming home to moldy, gross food, and my gramma taught me not to waste food - last night was salad, leftover brisket and a bit of peach pie!

I know it. I bought too much chicken for the 4th. Froze some but left some in the fridge to cook up at home. Got sick last week and went to grab it yesterday but it had spoiled. Irked me that I let it happen. Hated throwing most of a whole cut-up chicken in the trash.

But I did take some of the Wagyu burger out of the freezer the other day so I salved my guilty conscience by making some killer burgers last night. Yum, this meat is amazing. Also threw together a quick sort of baked potato salad. Boiled potatoes, threw in some onion, pickles, and bacon but used about half sour cream instead of just mayo. Tasty!

Eek! Spoilt chicken coulda been bad news.

Kroger had a sale on beef shoulder steak. Looked like the cut of beef my mom used to make London broil when we were kids. We were living high when mom made London broil!

Choice. $3.99/lb. I can be cheap and I like a challenge. So, fire up the Cali, it's time to hit the Kroger! Being a less glamorous cut of beef, I asked the butcher to slice it thin, about 1/2". Poor dude, he gave me this "Why are you busting my chops (get it, chops! )
for a 4 buck steak?" look.

Anyway, this recipe provided inspiration.
https://youtu.be/Vxk5vNoCzg8

I marinated the steak for 4 hours in balsamic, garlic powder, salt, pepper, canola oil.

Sear 1 min per side. Add 'shrooms & diced shallot. Knob of butter. Splash of white wine. Into a 365 F oven for 12 min.

Thought it came out tasty. I'd pre-sweat shallots and mushrooms a bit next time. But, not bad. Splash some A1 steak sauce on there and it'd been a dead ringer for mom's London broil.

I think that'd be a great name for a food cart - Egg Roll in a Bowl!

Leftover chicken burritos! Sweat some onions and peppers. Add chipotles. A little sour cream, and the fridge is a little emptier...T

Spaghetti alla Maranello

This doesn't photograph well, but the flavor is sublime... I was introduced to this by an Italian friend who ordered it in a little trattoria in Maranello (not one of the 'name' places); I think it is a local specialty. Basically prawns and zucchini poached in a stock made from prawn shells and heads, then finished with a little cream. It looks a bit gross because the zucchini soaks up all the stock flavor, but then they become little flavor bombs when you eat them. Yum! If anyone wants to try it, just
1. Make stock by frying garlic, salt, peppercorns in butter before adding the prawn shells and heads and making sure all gets well coated in butter. Cover with white wine and add bay leaf, then cover and simmer gently for an hour or so until a rich stock has developed (maybe add a little water along the way if you have too much evaporation; squash the heads and shells very now and then to get the flavor out.
2. When the stock is ready, pour through a fine sieve into a small saucepan, turn up to boiling and add zucchini which has been sliced into thick (10mm) circles with the skin on, plus the prawns. Poach the prawns quickly (I cut good size prawns in half) and remove as soon as they're cooked. Continue reducing the stock with the zucchini until a concentrated stock remains.
3. Add cream to make a sauce consitency, turn off the heat, replace prawns and then add cooked pasta and you're ready to eat.
Quantities for 1 person - around 250g prawns, 2-3 good size zucchini.

Doesn't look gross at all, looks tasty and sounds good!
