First topic message reminder :

While watching the playoffs, I’ve been busy in the kitchen.

Made a huge pot of pasta e fagioli and there’s plenty left for lunches. Of course I omit the onion and don’t add celery as I just don’t like it, but a good sprinkling of smoked Spanish paprika is delicious. Serve it with some grated Parmesan and crusty bread and salad.

Second is banana and pecan bread. Pecans are a huge business in Arizona and just before Christmas is harvest time. I have a super lovely older lady patron who gives me a massive bag of freshly picked nuts as a Christmas present. They’re expensive so I’m grateful. I’ll probably make a pecan pie or pecan bars with the rest.

What have you got on the go?

I’d be trumping if I had all those beans. lol!

It's not the mixture, it's the volume you consume. lol!

Lots of cilantro and diced red onions...yuuuuummmm. Easy to make, great presentation, and really good.

Ok, wasn't my house and I didn't cook it.  

But I ate it for dinner last night.  

Is that different types of beans? Shocked

It's red beans and rice which is served with most Cajun meals. The rice is on the bottom.

Red beans and rice are an old New Orleans dish, usually fixed with Andouille Sausage. https://www.pauladeen.com/recipe/red-beans-and-rice-with-andouille-sausage/

Best at the Commander's Palace Restaurant, in the Garden District. https://www.neworleans.com/coolinary/listing/commanders-palace-restaurant/38402/

Best ever.

That looks very nice and refreshing. I don’t like cilantro - or as we call it, coriander.
I liked dried coriander, which is sweet, but not fresh coriander. It smells weird to me.

Looks to me like that red beans and rice did also contain black beans. Still looks nice -- true "coon-ass" food, as the Cajuns say Smile

It's definitely got a taste of it's own. It's as essential to Mexican food, as salt & pepper to ours.

I love it. But, I also love jalapeno peppers and hot food generally.

I don’t mind hot food, I grew up living with a lot of black people, it’s just fresh coriander. It tastes yuck to me.

Yes, red beans and rice is Cajun food.  My wife (from New Orleans) told me it was the Tuesday lunch, in all of New Orleans.  That was the tradition.  Tuesday?  Down to the QUAH-TA for red beans n' rice...or a muff-ah-LOTTA (Italian-style sandwich with cured meats, cheese, and olive salad oil)...sometimes called a PO-BOY.

That dish looks really nice, OQ.
I find sweetcorn very hard to digest, so would have to
substitute for something else.

Depicted is yellow corn. Try white corn. Anyway, the corn isn't essential, just traditional native American...which is what Mexican is. The essential ingredients are pinto beans, black beans and the chopped red onion...plus cilantro.

I think about 15% of folks thing cilantro tastes like soap. It's actually genetic.

That's why dairy products are always available on a Mexican table.  Even in the above, see the cheeses?  Dairy cheeses and creams dampen the heat.

When I lived in Tucson, I attended a pig pit-bake with some Mexican families. The host brought in some pico de pajaros and offered them. Immediately, the women went to the refrigerator and started pouring some glasses of milk and getting out the sour cream.

Xlnt. Make sure you remove the seeds. The flesh of the pepper is hot enough. The seeds are on fire.

Marinated steak with Nigella’s Salt and Apple cider vinegar potatoes.

Chile crisp shrimp with green beans and shredded carrots served over egg noodles.

Slow cooker shredded beef tacos.

Recipe for the chile crisp shrimp with green beans, por favor? I happen to have the ingredients in the fridge now (fresh bought), and your dish looks delicious.

Well Nigella did it, I just followed. I saw a Jamie Oliver video the other day and he suggested getting a small bottle spritzer/spray and filling it with flavored vinegar or vinegar infused with a herb and spraying it on roast or baked potatoes when they come out of the oven. I’m going to make a white wine with tarragon and a red wine one with thyme.

Welcome. Sorry it came out in the wrong order. It’s early. Didn’t sleep well so brain not quite awake. Enjoy. I added extra soy sauce because I’m a rebel Cool

And so add the peanuts. They give it a nice crunch.

Great. Now I want a pork pie AND I CANT GET ONE. Thanks a lot mate Sad Razz


Tonight is takeaway. Either Vietnamese or Pizza. Tomorrow I’m making a chicken pot pie from scratch (apart from the pastry because life is too short). Monday is Mr. C’s birthday so we are getting takeaway from the local steakhouse.

Well I ordered baked salmon with lemon and dill from Asda, which I was going to have with a gorgeous salad (I am good at salads Razz)

Instead they substituted it for smoked mackerel fillets. Crying or Very sad

That is what puts me off online shopping. I would rather not have it,
then they give me a substitute Neutral

I never used to have a problem way back when with Tescos or Sainsburys except very occasionally with some veg that was almost off.

Here in the US they allow you to say no substitutions for the whole order or for individual items. Like I usually buy the store brand milk but I say it can be Shamrock or if they don’t have Kerrygold butter I’ll say another brand. Can you not do this over there?

They have also started in the last few weeks of texting you what substitutions they have made and you can accept or decline.

Asda do offer a no substitute option,  for all or individual items, I  just didn't use it, I will in future though.

I dont want to moan about them, because they honestly have been a Godsend delivering my full weeks shopping, promptly and politely.
The main supermarkets round here have had horrendous waits just to get in, so I have been grateful for the service.

Yeah I learned the hard way about substitutions.

Here it is free pickup at the store in a designated slot and time. It is fulfilled by grocery store employees. And that is what I have been using for the last 2 months. If something is out of stock, then so be it and I will adjust.

The delivery service on the other hand is expensive and is contracted out to individuals, a bit like Uber or Lyft, and I did it once. The couple were a bit weird and kept pressing me for an extra tip and some of the substitutions were not even close. Plus a thing of butter was missing. I asked and they said it wasn’t in their car. So. Yeah. No more of that.

Hi Cass, the asda delivery here always comes direct from their own drivers  in Asda vans.
Costs between £2 and £6, they offer slots of  one hour, and always text when they are on the way.

We have no contact with the driver, he bags them up  and leaves them on step.....as we are self isolating we are always around, so it works.

There is nothing like doing your own shop though, picking your own fruit and veg, choosing good sell by dates etc.....but in these present times it's a good service to have.

It looks nice, but like Oscar Wilde once said about kids....'I couldn't eat a whole one', I would have to share. Cool

Well, I'm a pig.

On a side note, they took my temperature before I could sit down. Second place to do this to me. You can't eat there with a fever.

Busy day. Blueberry bread, brownies, bread and chicken pot pie. Pastry was a fail, I’m only good at it with sausage rolls, but it was delicious nonetheless.
