Week in Food: Past, Present, Future

Last week I made and ate:

Perfect fish tacos - The name sets it up for failure, and these were very good, but not as perfect to me as GP’s fish tacos. You can’t be perfect if your batter lacks beer. End of sentence. They were extremely crispy (I’m guessing thanks to the rice flour). I will be making that slaw for ever and ever though. That shit was the business.

One-pot french onion pasta - I wanted this to be more flavorful than it was. I used veal stock in place of chicken, and still pretty bland. Don’t worry I ate the entire thing, but it’s what I think I’d crave after a bad flu or something.

Budget Bytes’ stromboli - Still practically perfect in every way. Use HSE’s dough (found in recipe below) and mix the italian seasoning into the dough instead of sprinkling on top.

Sweet corn, zucchini, and fresh mozzarella pizza - Good GOD this was delicious. I thought so even having forgotten the garlic (I know, blinded by hunger, etc, etc). Two ears of corn was…a lot of corn. I love corn, but sliding a pizza with that many kernels from peel to oven was stressful and sort of catastrophic. Use her dough recipe, it’s the only one I ever do. Also, TJ’s makes a hell of a bottled balsamic glaze so I recommend you go find some stat.

This week, I will make and eat posole lasagna and sk’s sweet peas & shells alfredo.

Oh look a food post!

We’ve got some meals to eat this week:

I also promised you some reviews:

  • Queso blanco burgers - Is there a name for that gesture where you make the okay sign with your fingers and kiss them? It is super important not to heat the queso too quickly or it’ll get grainy. Be patient. Get a bag of chips for what doesn’t fit on the burgers, friends. 
  • Caramelized onion greek yogurt dip - I didn’t make this but I sure ate it. Would do again. 
  • Killer artichoke bread - A perfectly suitable dinner in my opinion.

Too tired and too Monday to come up with a clever food post title.

Our one real meal this week will be queso blanco burgers, which I’ll tell ya right now are pretty great. I’ll have a slew of book club snack foods to tell you about though. 

Last week I made smitten kitchen’s dijon and cognac beef stew….dudes. Maybe not seasonally appropriate but AMAZING. My edits were to double the mushrooms and I ended up having to add some extra beef stock during the cook time since I was worried about evaporation about 60% through. Serve over egg noodles. Be happy.

Weekly Food Post What Do I Even Call This

So again, it was an odd/busy week and midway through I got smacked in the face with some sort of unidentified illness, but I did make sweet potato jalapeno chicken chili and it was okay but did not bowl me over in any way. I’m consistently suspicious of recipes that claim a bunch of liquid will vanish with the pot lid on…mine did not cook down as promised until I took the wheel, removed the lid, and cranked the heat UP for ten minutes. Not offensive, not special. A solid meh. 

This coming week we’re trying out Blue Apron thanks to a invite from a friend (I don’t have any yet, sorry booboos). Stay tuned for my thoughts on that. 

In case you’re wondering what I’m planning for tonight’s dinner,

Cool post, Steph.
