Burst garden cherry tomato sauce spaghetti. In these cooks I used linguine noodles instead of spaghetti. There are three varieties of cherry tomatoes including the highly rated sun sugar (orange). When plating I added fresh hand grated grana padano cheese on a few plates and powdered grana padano on the other two plates, plus fresh basil (some plates have Thai purple basil).









More fresh garden cucumbers with salt, vinegar and 4 peppercorn grind.


This is fresh from the garden bok choy (two types). I wok cooked/steamed them with fresh garlic and a bit of oyster sauce.

Ok, I'll give it a try...

Indian chicken massala/curry with long beans (?) rice and sweat&sour cucumber.

What you'll need for preparing the chicken massala:

Chicken (1 - 1,5 kg)
Onions (5-6)
Garlic (3-4 small pieces)
Indian massala/curry powder
Salt and pepper
Oil

What you'll need for the long beans:

Ofcourse long beans
Salt and pepper
A little bit of oil

Lets get started:

Boil the rice as you like.


Cut the long beans into little pieces
Cut the chicken
Chop the onions into very small pieces






Heat the oil and when it is het put the garlic and onions in. After a while, put the chicken in. Also put the salt (about 2-3 spoons, as you like) and a few pinches of pepper.
If you like it hot, you can also put some fresh peppers in it, I don't do that.

When the chicken is starting to get white, make some space in the middle to put a few spoons of the massala/curry powder.




After that, drain the oil. And put it in the oven to keep it warm (60 degrees Celcius or so) while preparing the long beans.



Put 2 or 3 spoons of oil and the long beans in the same wok as the chicken (don't clean it), put salt and pepper on it as much as you prefer.



When it get a bright green color it is almost finished, taste it, must have a small bite.



This is the basic recepy for the sweat and sour cucumber, you'll need:
1 cucumber
500ml a bit warm water
8-10 spoons of vinegar
8-10 spoons of sugar
4 thea spoons of salt

Put the water in a bowl, stirr the vinegar, salt and sugar through it. You'll have to taste it and add the things you want (sugar/vinegar) to make it perfect for you. Add the cucumber and let it rest in the fridge for a day.

This is the end result, onions with the oil is also a sort of sauce. Maybe you'll have to try it a few times to get it as perfect as you like. But, I know you'll enjoy it...

That looks and sounds top notch @Ghetto Bassie! I really enjoy massala and adding cucumbers in a sandwich sounds like a great complimentary contrast. Great suggestion.

Red wine and shallot marinated beef kabobs.


Jalapeno and tequila marinated beef kabobs.




Cooked brussel sprouts in salt, pepper and olive oil, served with coarse sea salt edamame.


Tianjin style steam-fry pork dumplings served with garden leek onion/stalk and sambal olek sauce.


Enjoy the weekend.

I can tell you that you must watch out that you don't eat your fingers with it... :grin2:

I got the recepy from a collegue of mine (with his roots in Surinam) about 18 years ago. Still make it a few times a year. My collegue always makes it with chicken legs and wings and uses peppers (thought madame jeanette peppers) to make it spicey. I don't like the bones, so I use chicken breasts.

After some try-outs (with less ingredients to start with), I got it right for me.(how much salt/pepper I have to use). It is really something to try out. Enjoy...


Must say that those kabobs also look fingerlicking good... ��

I grilled a spicy apricot glaze ham for Canadian Thanksgiving. This one is a 10 lb bone-in shank picnic style ham, smoked with apple, cherry and hickory wood chips. The meal included scratch-made candied yams, scratch-made cast iron skillet stuffing and fresh sliced garden cucumber. Dessert was premium pumpkin pie with whipped cream.













Cheers.

BBQ pulled pork. Smoked with hickory, apple and cherry woods on the Weber Summit grill and done low and slow for almost 13 hours at ~ 240 F.

Big pictures with lots of resolution. Here the the pork shoulder/butt just before I took it off the grill.


Pulled with bear claws.


I picked up two different sets of fresh buns (kaiser and sesame) and had one of my favorite butchers make up a premium coleslaw to serve with the meal. Here are a number of sandwiches.












The pork shoulder/butt was custom ordered and vacuum packed from a favorite butcher.



Cheers and have a great weekend.

I think I need to hire a personal Chef. I'm having one of the packets of entrees, from my Doomsday Prepper stash! If I eat the whole thing (4 servings supposedly) I'm gonna have to double, or triple up on my blood pressure meds, since there is almost 500 mg of sodium per serving! 😝😝😝

Caesar salad.


Another half pound custom butcher beef burger, this one from the Weber Summit grill with romaine lettuce, pickles, sliced garden tomatoes, diced garden onion, double american cheese, mustard and Melinda's Habanero ketchup on a toasted kaiser bun.


Fried Green tomatoes. I used late season garden tomatoes picked before the first big frost. Some had ripened as can be seen in the picture but were still nicely acidic for this cook.


Cheers and enjoy the weekend.
