    Thanks @PureEuroM3.

    I made a bit different batch of soup tonight. A pound of ground turkey, several idaho potatoes, lots of carrots, zucchinis, another squash (confetti or carnival?), beets, ginger, fresh ground fennel and mustard seed, coconut cream, lemon and orange juice and their zest, coconut vinegar and sea salt.

    I’ll take a stab at guessing the black salt.......Hawaiian volcanic salt?

    The BEST combo...I get a hunkering for that combo, especially if I get a cold/flu bug. Its the only good thing to come out of getting sick.

    Beets in soup. Interesting idea. Am guessing golden beets from the color?

    Yummy. Last night was samosa night. Used this puff pastry dough.

    Browned ground beef. Mixed w/ jalfrezi sauce (Kroger). Threw a few frozen peas on top.

    My folding and crimping skills are lame. My grandma would be so embarrassed. This would
    be the best looking of the lot. Made a dozen of them.

    In the oven.

    After cooking @ 425 F for ~ 30 mins.
    Made a yogurt/cucumber/mint dipping sauce. I would have preferred to use a spicier simmer
    sauce than jalfrezi, but the missus shot down that idea. Nonetheless, they were good with a
    few drops of Tabasco scorpion, then dipped in to the sauce to cool things off. The dough
    was easy to work with. Another quality product from Wewalka...T

    I forget the salt was brought from France I’ll have to ask my friend.

    Sauce is Urotrash’s recipe which is delicious:

    1 can San marzano tomatoes
    1/2 stick butter
    One onion cut in 1/2

    Simmer for an hour mushing the tomatoes up.
    Pull out the onion pieces and the sauce is to die for! Sometimes we leave and purée the onion in for a change.

    Thanks. Taste was good one I added some hot sauce. Only a couple had a filling explosion. Tonight, it's leftover chili. And, cornbread!

    I don't know if it's a Southern thing, but it is the first place I ran into sweet cornbread. Mother in law used to love it that way. So, I add a tsp of sugar to the box mix. Tasty!

    Still enjoying it. Had the root veggie theme going on, and they were red beets, but the pigment sort of cooked away, I guess. The light pink pieces are them. They were golden beets in the last batch with the lighter color stock, chicken, potatoes, and carrots. And there were multi colored carrots in the most recent batch, as well....some purple, some yellow, and orange.

    Yes sir. The ladies first attempt. Her cooking has been a rare occasion lately but it’s good to know she’s capable...


    I try not to take pictures of my food at restaurants but this one was from a stop at California pizza kitchen last week.
    Buffalo cauliflower and a veggie pizza with goat cheese and truffle oil. The waiter misheard and we didn’t get the cauliflower crust but it was still pretty damn good. The owner saw the waiter/bartender apologizing to us profusely (which wasn’t really necessary as I could care less and actually wanted the bread ), came over and introduced himself. Great guy and possibly one of the best chain restaurants I’ve ever been in.

    I'm still in Eastern Washington. So its been Panda Express, Olive Garden and Applebee's for dinner. Stayed an extra night because it started snowing yesterday. I'll head home this afternoon. Plan to stop at the sushi bar I found off the freeway.

    I've been a CPK fan since they had only a couple of stores in the LA area (gotta be 30 years now).

    They recently took one of my fav foods - the "Tortilla Spring rolls" - off of the menu. I'm thinking of boycotting until its returned!

    We had that cauliflower app the other day for the first time - yummy.

    I think of myself as a "never chain" person, but then realized from your post I guess I have an exception to that (and the fast food places of course).

    We went to dim sum again for lunch and its in a large mall of exclusively Asian stores. So there is a giant Chinese market inside...they have restaurant quantity of lots of stuff and an amazing assortment of interesting/rare veggies. That store is a foodie wonderland...

    Anyways, I bought 4 kinds of mushrooms and roasted them in the oven with thyme, butter, garlic, evoo and s&p. Served them with a (very disappointing) prime grade ribeye and a twice baked potato. My portion in the first pic, then the little ladies.

    Oh, and Ania made a "tester" pumpkin pie in anticipation of making one for her first ever thanksgiving at my mom's house later this month. Served with homemade whipped cream (I gotta admit, I was a child in the 70s and my mom was trained to serve us pre-made crap like cool whip or readiwhip rather than make the real stuff...so I only discovered actual whipped cream late in life...lordy its good)

    That sounds dicey!

    No good local Tex Mex joints in Eastern Washington?
