it is my boyfriend’s birthday so got takeout from his favorite Thai place: curry puffs, crab rolls, larb, green papaya salad a duck curry with garlic rice. For dessert I made his favorite coconut cream pie. 

If I was your SO there would be no takeout on my birthday.   That’s like dating Emeril and he orders takeout haha!

@biakbak I want 4 cheese stuffed hand made ravioli in a Gorgonzola sauce, homemade garlic bread, a salad with brioche croutons and something chocolate and divine. 
 

I kid- I love you got him that but I am amazed at your skill.

I know theirs is more of the thin and crispy variety but if you also like a thin and kind of folds when you a hold a slice I have to say the Shaq-a roni from Papa Johns is pretty solid for it being from one of the major 3 for 12 bucks. 
 

Ooh, thanks. I may have to try this. Papa's John's in across the street from my work.

Awww, thank you so much! He wanted takeout so he could force me to go on a super long bike ride without me making an excuse we could spend more time on his birthday together. 

We had buttermilk to use up so fried chicken and potato salad and corn on the cob.

Blue Apron sweet and spicy chicken stir fry with snow peas and rice. It was very good.

Got an email from Blue Apron saying they are collaborating with Amanda Freitag. Can't wait!

Blue Apron Spanish spiced (whatever that is) salmon over red quinoa with zucchini and carrots served over seasoned Greek yogurt. It was good.

I wanted something super simple and that would not require washing dishes last night so I took a bone in chicken breast and liberally doused it in Myer's lemon juice, then sprinkled on a little salt, freshly ground black pepper, lots of garlic powder and a bunch of dried oregano, and then put several pats of butter on top. All this went into a foil lined baking pan and cooked at 375 degrees for one hour. It was delicious and very tender.

I tried a new recipe for a mushroom and egg galette. I overcooked the yolk. My fault.  Dang. I’ve tried to resize the image, but it’s not working tonight. Use your imaginations.

Using what is the house today. Chicken, mash potatoes (that were left overs) and cream of mushroom soup as a sauce for the chicken.

I'm making a turkey stir fry from Blue Apron, which is to be served over cauliflower rice. After reading the instructions on how to make the "rice" from a head of cauliflower, I decided - no, too much trouble. I'll make rice and use the cauliflower for something else. When I was telling my husband, he was, what? cauliflower rice? Never heard of such a thing. I said yes, it's for people who are watching their carbs. What he heard me say was - yes, it's for people washing their cars. Why would people want to wash their cars with cauliflower rice? 🤣🤣🤣

I am envious of your dinner and your weather!

I had a tuna sandwich with tomato and watercress. I have eaten so many tuna sandwiches since I’ve been working from home. Somehow it’s also become the default dinner when neither of us feels like cooking. Maybe because we stocked up on so much tuna at the beginning of the pandemic. We still have at least 10 cans to go!

I need to move to SF...65° in the summer? It's in the 90's here, don't wanna think what the humidity is. We had Thai delivery & my seafood curry was a bit too spicy (it didn't even have that little red pepper by it on the menu).  But it was delicious! Hurry up autumn.

Tomato pie and arugula salad. 

We had extra sweet potatoes to use up so decided to go with pie because why not!

For some reason a huge pack of flour tortillas was added to my Instantcart order from Costco so I made sort of hybrid chicken fajitas/burritos with a tequila lime marinade and guacamole.

Taco Tuesday with grilled local sweet corn on the cob.

Tacos here, too! (Granted, ours came delivered from GrubHub, but still...) And they gave more than ordered, we weren't charged, so bonus.  🙂

Too hot to cook so we threw this together. 0F5F7C39-2BCA-48DD-9CE9-580432AABEA0.thumb.jpeg.37b98350358d86485002f50cfe77c6d2.jpeg

That looks soooo good. Is that chicken salad, prosciutto wrapped melon, toasted or grilled something...

Last of my Blue Apron meals from the Friday shipment - Calabrian shrimp & orzo with zucchini. Tasty with easy prep.

My primary meal is irrelevant.  For dessert, I had a big heaping spoon of Trader Joe's cookie butter with M&Ms mixed in.  Delicious!

Last night was my three spice baked chicken thighs (oregano, thyme and basil with garlic powder, salt and pepper topped with a big pat of butter on each thigh - bake at 375 for 1 hour ten minutes) - tonight its going to be way too hot here to cook anything inside, so - grilled prime top sirloin steak with a salad should do nicely 🙂

We got one of the handful of hot days we get a year, over 90, and I don’t deal with heat well so it was ham and cheese wraps with potato chips and pickles.

Dinner was grilled sirloin beef steaks, grilled corn on the cob, and baked potatoes.

For the 1st time since I started using Blue Apron in April, my 3 meal box that was supposed to arrive today is MIA. Blue Apron has credited my account, but dang, that's 3 meals I did not plan on shopping for.

I made meatloaf, mashed potatoes (Bob's) & spinach (salad for Mr P914). Also made a small apple crostata for dessert.

Another too hot day so a cold pasta salad with tuna. I also am teaching a 9 year old to cook over FaceTime so this morning we made chocolate pudding pie so we had that for dessert.

I had a mango smoothie for breakfast, a spinach salad for lunch, and Blue Apron* creamy pesto chicken with orzo for dinner.

*My Blue Apron box arrived Saturday morning (was supposed to arrive Friday), looking the worse for wear - wet from rain and starting to fall apart, but everything inside was okay. The gel freezer packs were still partially frozen enough to keep everything cold.

Lunch:  steamed kale and poached salmon 

Dinner tonight will be: Japanese-Mexican fusion - baked vegetarian gyoza (okay, reheating frozen ones in the oven) with vegetables, pinto beans and guacamole.

Coconut curry chicken, curry roasted cauliflower, and basmati rice. 

I've got a leftover head of cauliflower I didn't use from a Blue Apron dinner that called for making cauliflower "rice" from it. Instead I just made regular rice. Curry roasted cauliflower sounds good!

It was! Cauliflower, olive oil, curry powder and salt, roasted for 30 minutes at 425. I otherwise don’t like cauliflower, but I love it roasted. In the fall/winter I roast a couple of sheet pans of broccoli, cauliflower, sweet potatoes and whatever else is around, almost every weekend. We are having unusually cool weather the last couple of days, so I was able to roast and bake a few things.

I'm fine with it in general (and love cauliflower "rice" as a substitute for rice, which I find utterly pointless filler but I sometimes need something like it in a saucy dish), but roasted is my favorite.  I particularly like it roasted with olive oil and red pepper flakes.

Delivery pizza and I tried new (for me) toppings: diced tomatoes & fresh mozzarella. Very good! And a Greek salad.

Add basil, and that's a summertime favorite for me.  Margherita pizza is one of the few with a tomato sauce I love (I prefer pesto, olive oil, alfredo, or another white sauce); the other is a pizza topped with chorizo, cilantro, onions, and jalapeño.

I made roasted curry cauliflower soup with the leftover Blue Apron head of cauliflower, a red onion, and a packet of Vadouvan curry spice. It was very good. I cobbled together various cauliflower soup recipes. One recipe said not to use an immersion blender - didn't get it smooth enough. I ignored that and used an immersion blender and it was nice and creamy.

We tried a Katie Lee recipe--grilled hoisin pork chops, along w/ mashed potatoes, and a Greek salad (leftover from that pizza delivery--it was huge). For "dessert" I had a cup of diet Swiss Miss with a ton of mini marshmallows. I'm ready for autumn!

I made a tomato and corn pie with a biscuit crust. I used 2 tomatoes from my neighbor’s garden and one from mine. I’m going to take over a couple pieces of the pie to my neighbor and her sister.

Last of the Blue Apron box that arrived late - Korean style steak and rice bowls with mushrooms, Bok Choy and snap peas. The steak was flank steak that the recipe called for salt, pepper, and a sauté in olive oil. I nixed that and marinated it in olive oil, soy sauce, honey, red wine vinegar, and garlic and we grilled it. Much better.

Easiest and best marinade I've found for flank steak is Paul Newman's Classic Olive Oil and Vinegar Dressing which is what I did last night - started marinating the meat the day before and then grilled it last night. It is super hot and smoky where I live and we are being asked not to use our ovens (or any powered cooking devices) in the evenings as to spare the grid so I guess I'm grilling every night until this is over.

Pan fried scallops in brown butter with cauliflower rice in the butter with preserved lemons from Morocco and sliced garlic and a few capers. Yum, I'm kind of eating a bit upscale as my appetite is down so I am trying new things to make it interesting.

Grilled pork tenderloin, baked potatoes also on the grill, and tossed salad. Wacky cake with butter cream frosting (so I guess it lost its vegan status).
