quick dinner last night:

roasted cauliflower and oven steaks cordon bleu. no pics but it was DIVINE. here's how I did the steaks:

1) preheat the oven as hot as it will go, I did 525 F
2) near the end of the preheating, put a large ovenproof pan that can hold the steaks on the stove and heat it empty at medium high for 4-5 minutes.
3) in the meantime, put some butcher's rub on 1" thick steaks on both sides
4) scatter a lot of kosher salt in the pan, then put the steaks in. They will sizzle immediately. Using oven gloves, put in the oven on the bottommost rack.
5) after 3-4 minutes, take pan out, turn steaks over, and put back in.
6) after about 4 more minutes, take steaks out, use an instant read-thermometer to test for doneness. I like them to reach 150 F in the middle for medium rare. (I cook Mr. LRLR's to 160 for medium.)
7) Plate the steaks and put a slice of swiss on each. the swiss will melt.
8) i then laid a piece of prosciutto on each.
9) I had some homemade mayo, so I mixed it with some dijon mustard and honey. We could then put sauce on at the table.

It tasted spectacular and decadent, and it took about 12 minutes once the oven was preheated. Win!

I've been baking sweet potatoes every couple days since it's the season for them in Japan. So simple, but so delicious.

Cooked a perfect medium rare steak yesterday. Nothing fancy, but I got the timing exactly right - Maillard reaction on the outside, pink on the inside.

On my own for a few nights since MoltenBoron is visiting his parents in California.

Just made whole grain pasta with roasted chicken (Perdue pre-cooked because I am the lazy) and steamed broccoli in vegetable broth. I seasoned it with salt and pepper, dried oregano and basil, and garlic powder. Topped with shredded Romano cheese.

Debating second helping vs leftovers for tomorrow's lunch

Oven roasted corn is one of the best things ever.

I forgot my chickpeas for the chicken curry.

It was okay. Could have been better, but okay.

Cardamon will fix anything, anyway.

The only thing that adding cardamom can't fix is when you've spilled your whole bottle of cardamom into the pot.

Even then it's debatable whether you actually have a problem or not

It's sad because then you have no cardamom for next time.

Cook some red lentils with chicken bullion, onions, garlic, cilantro, cumin, pepper, and salt. Mix them with rice and diced tomatoes. Then stuff the filling into bell peppers. It's tasty!

I followed up on my "pumpkin sauce on meat" inspiration from back in September tonight, since I had all the pumpkin makings available.

it became "pumpkin chutney". I kind of put way too many different spices in there, but it worked pretty good; the only thing I wish I had done differently would be to process it a little finer, but idk how smooth pumpkin flesh gets. maybe slightly less sugar, cinnamon, cumin)

Spices used for my reference: cinnamon (2 pinch), cumin (2 pinch), brown sugar (3-4 pinches; lost track ), nutmeg (dash), "vindaloo powder" (dash), course-ground pepper (dash)

also: teaspoon of sour cream, 2-4 teaspoons of olive oil, and enough water to keep thinning it down to cook longer. It was on heat for prolly 10 minutes

We had a great sequence of meals in the last week that were reusing things from the previous meal.

First, Lumber make this roast chicken which was absolutely amazing. In the bottom of the roasting pan was the leftover milk/lemon/sage/garlic sauce, which I stored away.

A few days later I strained it and used to make mashed potatoes. I made 2lbs and did have to add some cream in addition to the sauce, but they came out with this wonderful rustic lemon sage flavor.

Then I used those mashed potatoes to make potato leek soup. I don't use the fennel the recipe calls for and often use 4 leeks instead of 3. I'll also throw in a chopped celery stalk or two right before blending.

Also immersion blenders are the best.
