Lunch, earlier

edit:

The first pic is mackerel rilette on potato blini.
The middle is roast chicken breast on top of peas, bacon & cabbage. Carrot and watercress on top. The swathe of green puree is pea.
The last is lemon possett (basically a very rich lemon pudding). Has some sort of granola crumble and mandarin segments with a quenelle of lemon sorbet on top.

I'm almost ashamed to post pics after Mal.  :P. But this Thai chicken curry was delicious and I made it so I'm proud of how it turned out.  ;D

   :-D  I know man....I wanted to ask but thought Mal might explain. Desert looks like maybe some sort of peach cobbler/crumb delish thing.

yeah sorry Jon, Bob.  I forgot.
I've edited it to include descriptions. The middle one was roast chicken breast.

Fried in my favorite cast iron skillet, loin chops seasoned with Montreal Steak seasoning and fresh lime and nuked baked potatoes, smashed and seasoned with salt, pepper and some dill. All were sprayed with that yellow bottle fake butter spray (I like it for frying and smoking/grilling some things) til crispy and perfect. Now to set down to eat, they've rested enough!! :drool:

Nice!  Dill can be so refreshing.  I was a naughty girl and had some battered fish tonight at a car show.  I don't usually eat fried food, but it was done well so I have no complaints.  Just have to get my veggies in over the next couple of days.

Nice!  I take it you omitted the bits of hardened maple(ish) syrup in the pancakes, right? I would love to be able to recreate those bits at home.

How did you shape the egg?

Yea I didn't make the maple crystals but I did make little cinnamon balls to replicate them with some CinnaBun protein powder. I used ring molds for the pancakes and eggs. They were good but could have been way better so now I know what to do next time. The eggs took WAY longer than I thought to cook in the molds. The pancakes cooled down to much because I made them first and the protein balls kind of got stiff. Also I wanted the pancakes to be thicker like the McGriddles but I didn't have enough batter. If I only made one it would have been fine but not for two of them. Next time it's eggs first and at the same time bacon. Then pancakes last since they baked pretty fast.

I've never seen them done nor have I researched it, but I'm pretty sure the eggs are done in a thin layer and then folded- that way, they cook fast- not to mention, there's something textural about a thin layer of egg (an omelet) that you just can't get with a thicker layer of egg.

Just yesterday, I combined bacon and doughnuts for the first time.  A couple years back, I had bacon PB cookies, and those were pretty amazing, but I haven't really gone all that haywire with bacon and desserts.  This could end up being really bad for my health- and the way bacon prices are going, bad for my wallet as well :)

Went out for a sashimi/sushi omakase meal today.

some of the sashimi highlights:
marinated aji
hamachi
kombu-cured engawa (turbot fin)
kama toro (tuna collar)

some of the nigiri highlights:
aburi otoro
black cod

marinated ikura with yuzu (gunkan maki)

Temaki of minced tuna (otoro, chutoro, akami) and pickled gourd

Tamagoyaki to finish (cake-like not folded)

Didn't take any pics but here's a collage of a few pieces from previous visits:

<edit: can't remove the photovisi.com "watermark" on the image but fwiw it's the online photo collage tool I used>

You guys are too funny thinking sugar is bad for you... This all fits into my macros which is all that matters.

Ha!   ;D  I would hit it anyway; and yes, I truly do take medicine for type 2 diabetes. But so what man...bring on those flap jacks!  :drool:
