Thai time

by Larry Greenly » Sat Jan 13, 2007 12:33 pm

I'm going through my freezers nibbling at the foodstores I've stashed away like a squirrel. Last night I discovered half a sirloin. A quick rundown in my head about what ingredients I had on hand (which made a lot of screeching, grinding noises--I need some Focus Factor), I determined it was Thai time.

Menu:

Thai beef curry
Stir-fried chinese cabbage and veges
Basmati rice

Yum! The basmati rice is from Costco (it comes in a burlap bag) and it's really outstanding.

What did you make?

Lentil soup. Spinach ricotta pie. A baguette.
And a few glasses of 05 Domaine de Vissoux Cuvee Traditionelle
Yum.

Didn't cook. Went to a birthday party.

Last night I threw together a sort of cross between risotto and pizza. ;)

Seriously: Fashioned about a dozen simple little meatballs out of a smallish amount (half-pound) of ground veal, and simmered them until they floated in about a quart of good strong chicken broth. Gently lifted out the meatballs and left them to stay warm in a little homemade tomato sauce with some oregano, while I fashioned a risotto with carnaroli rice, chopped onions and green peppers and minced garlic. When the risotto was done, I mixed a little Pecorino Romano into the tomato sauce and meatballs to thicken the sauce; a little more Romano into the risotto. Then put the rice in a serving bowl and poured the meatballs and sauce over it. Pizza flavors in a risotto, voila! (I skipped the mozzarella step, though ... )

Today we hit a local taqueria for menudo and tacos de lengua de res - cow tongue and cow tumy! - and I'm so full that we're basically skipping dinner tonight, although I'm making a sheet full of grissini to last for a few days and will certainly find room to munch a few of them.

I'm so embarassed, I had a rotisery chicken from Sam's and simple tosssed salad. :oops: I'll do better tonight, I promise. I'm thinking beef stew with spaetzle and a shaved fennel/radicchio salad inspired by Phil's photos from Italy.
