It's October?!?! Panicking. How can it be so close to the end of 2020?
9/23 Spiced Ginger Shrimp with Burst Tomatoes (NYT/Melissa Clark) Curry powder, heaping cup of tomatoes, half a bag of baby spinach, half a pound of shrimp, cilantro, full sauce. SO GOOD.
9/30 Whole Wheat Chocolate Oat Cookies (SK) Let cool before eating! Chewy, perfect texture. Used only 3oz chips--I like more cookie in my cookies--and walnuts. [Want to try the frozen ones—these still spread and were a bit greasy. But I could see them moving to Good ]
9/20 Ratatouille Sheet-Pan Chicken (Dinner in French) Really good, if a bit fussy.
9/26 Thai Pork Burgers with Sesame Green Beans (ATK) Good, but not anything I need again. Would be better grilled.
9/25 Stir-Fried Pork, Eggplant, and Onions with Garlic and Black Pepper (CI) This was better than I thought it was going to be. Maybe it is just the smell of fish sauce. Like the taste, but the smell still seems off. Would have liked the eggplant cooked more. Used ground pork.
9/20 Plum Cobbler Bars (NYT) Took someone else’s shortcut and just put chopped plums over top of crust. Added about ¼ c pecans to topping. Really crispy, but that only lasted the first day then soggy.
9/9 Slow Cooker Pork Shoulder with Zesty Basil Sauce (Epicurious/victorial) Very floral/citrus/herby/garlicy. Different from the usual pulled pork. Didn’t have “crockpot” taste.
9/1 Waffle Iron Hash Browns (CL 3/17) Adapted to only one potato. I didn’t get enough fat on the iron, but could be good. Lots of crispy edges. Eat immediately!
9/1 No-Peel Slow-Cooker Marinara Sauce (EW 9/20) Cannot beat it for ease, but lots of skins remained in my stick blender—maybe it is too dull. Forgot garlic.
9/23 Spiced Tea Bread with Fresh Plums (EW July/Aug19) Spice disappeared; texture too rough; not sweet enough.
