Sardines with capers, a local olive tapenade, and lemon

had a slight brain hiccup. with exception o' anchovies, you pretty much listed ingredients o' typical tapenade.

am admitting we kinda like sardines, and am knowing they is good for us and all, but am certain we would eat far less if our dogs did not get so much enjoyment licking clean our sardine tins. first couple times we worried they might cut their tongue on the cans, but would appear they have a preternatural tongue deftness which makes 'em immune to such dangers.

we like sardines ok. the dogs love sardine tins. we have sardines frequent.

HA! Good Fun!

It's funny because I actually thought about changing it to say a tapenade with added or extra lemon and capers. Instead I went with what was the first thing I typed which is just the order I threw things on top of the sardines.

Lunch (crumbled meat is ground turkey)

Snacks.

To keep the sweet and snack cravings in control fruit is great. And a couple large tablespoons of vanilla ice cream, softened and mixed with lots o berries works well as a tiny treat.
I may not be that impressed with "FOUR CAMERAS" in the phone but it does take better pics than the tablet at least.

Me hungry. Me HANGRY.

No, really. I feel like I'm digesting myself. Like Pizza the Hut in Spaceballs. :p

Well to explain that, this was lunch:

While tasty that wasn't very, say, satisfying. Dinner wasn't much different either (well less tomatoes and more picked peppers with sauerkraut and some bread with ham). Plus an awful lot of stress at work right now. Yeah... :)

today, post morning walk, we were brushing one o' the dogs. his snoot/snout fur were noteworthy matted so we gave it a bit o' extra attention. the odor released while brushing were o' a thousand bloated beach corpses putrefying under a blistering summer sun... and sardines.

am gonna need be more observant o' the need to clean doggy faces after we allow the pups to lick clean sardine tins.

HA! Good Fun!

Went to the local farmers market store (been around for 30 years). They had Rainer cherries. OMG I love those. I always called them "white cherries" - like "white peaches". Anyway, never liked Bing/purple cherries.  But Rainer's ... I bought two bags and have to keep myself from eating more than a handful a few times a day. 

One of those truly nature's candies.

I gotta give props to the Kroger in southern Columbus, Ohio. I'm picking up a load in Columbus tomorrow morning, so after dropping my trailer at a nearby truck stop I bobtailed over to Kroger to do some shopping. I scooped up some spicy tuna rolls and this is probably the best supermarket sushi I've ever gotten.

Earlier this year I did the carnivore diet for a little over 2 months and wound up losing 20 lbs. I am happy to report that a bit over 3 months after stopping the diet and going back to eating more balanced I have not gained a single pound back. I think the main factor is that I have stayed away from refined sugar like the plague. Refined sugar is enemy #1.

For dinner I made buttermilk biscuits from scratch. Kind of a pain but totally worth it. Two were enjoyed with strawberry preserves from my garden last spring and black coffee. Two more come breakfast time with more coffee and a little drizzle of honey

I made cheddar & broccoli soup to take on the road with me when I go back to work tomorrow.

I haven't actually eaten a bowl of it yet, but I licked the ladle after I finished transferring it to tupperware bowls and it was delicious.

Butter, white onion, carrot, clove of garlic, broccoli florets, chicken stock, half & half, shredded cheddar, corn starch to thicken, salt & pepper to taste.

So I'd found a brand of kim chi (they're in Oregon) sold via Amazon. Make it fresh when you order, bag it, send it to you.  Came in 3 pounds. Store bought jars I've had were 14 oz I think, and I could eat two of those in a week easily so 3 pounds didn't seem like a huge stretch.  Anyway, turns out 3 pounds is a lot (filled a giant mason jar) since after an initial binge week the amount eaten can drop heavily. 8)  Was dubious about online kim-chi but this is good stuff, I'll buy it again ... if I ever finish this jar. Still have almost 1/4 of it left.

 

(originally full to the lid, time period minus 2 weeks while I was sick/not eating much...)

Now this is good deal which my Cpt family and I are going to participate in over the next few weeks or so, a 10 course seafood tasting menu that is only $20/person when you consider the exchange rate and that  is very reasonable :thumbsup:

I decided to experiment yesterday with Spaghetti Bolognese, I used Pork mince instead of Beef and it was delicious 

Making meals like Bolognese is always a good idea because  you can freeze extra mince and normally the mince I cook lasts for 2-3 days for other meals

My " quick " Bolognese meal is easy

  • Fry onions, garlic and mushrooms for about 4-7 minutes until onions are translucent 
  • Then add the Mince and brown it off for about 5 minutes
  • Then add Tomato Puree and Tomato and Onion mix or other primary sauces ( I would also add Red Wine )
  • Reduce heat and slow cook for about 1 hour or so 
  • Add spices and additional flavors as you see fit

🍲

I'm a simple person, often enjoying the simple things in life. Especially now that winter is over and it's spring, so I can sit outside in a t-shirt and have dinner. Just a bit of steak and onions from the BBQ and some microwaved potato mash from the grocery store (yeah, boo!). The onions could have used a bit more, but I'll keep that in mind next time and start them 10-15 minutes before the steak

Thats looks so ideal, well played Gorthfuscious...I live on the first floor of an apartment complex and we only allowed electric barbecues which doesnt quite add the same flavoring and smoking as a traditional barbecue with wood or coals

When  am I getting an invite?

Avocado goes in last just before serving. I cut it into small cubes and gently stir it in.

That makes sense, good tip for incorporating Avo in cooked dishes 🥘

Now, I'm not much of a cook, but there's a youtube channel I've been following during the epidemic, about different historical dishes sprinkled in with some history, and I absolutely love the show and the host. Been debating where to post it, but this seems the best place.

 

Civilization, in fact, grows more and more maudlin and hysterical; especially under democracy it tends to degenerate into a mere combat of crazes; the whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary. - H.L. Mencken
