We've been eating at home quite a bit recently......here are some of what we made.
Didn't know what to make for dinner...ended up buying some Italian Sausages and making a very basic sausage and peppers.
I do the thing where a brown the sausages over medium low heat and then cook the peppers and onions in the rendered fat. Surprisingly, the Missus enjoyed this and I ended up making it as one the dishes for Her Xmas potluck.
We had that alongside one of my favorite things....oven blasted brussel sprouts.
I love those leaves that fall off and get crisped up like chips.....I'm surprised that they haven't packaged that yet! Or maybe someone has and I just don't know about it.
Leftover sausage and peppers means a fritatta.
Alongside roasted baby white potatoes......
As you can tell, the oven is getting a bunch of work.....
Loved the oven roasted baby eggplant.....
How about some oven roasted cauliflower????
I've been making that pepper-tomato-harissa-cumin shakshuka thing. Here's a flat-iron steak seasoned with cumin-salt-pepper-paprika-granulated garlic-oregano, on top of the salsa/sauce.
There had been a a couple of packages of tempeh in the fridge that the Missus bought....tempeh.....sigh.... I went ahead and smoked it for the Missus, which She told me tastes really good. I'll take Her word for it. She decided to take what was left of the "shakshuka thing" and mix that with shaved vegetable and roasted kabocha, sauteed, with an egg cracked in the middle finished in the oven.
She's really into that "Ottolenghi look", huh?
I'm thinking slicing the smoked tempeh thin and frying it....bacon style...maybe....well...maybe not.
I saw some wild Mexican 41-50 white shrimp at Catalina Offshore. It might be small for many uses; but I think it's perfect for Gambas al Ajillo (Garlic Shrimp).
So there you go....been cooking at home quite a bit lately....have you?
