Tonight we’re going out for Tacos. It’s Taco Tuesday.

Last night I made three cheese garlic shrimp risotto with steamed zucchini. It was delicious and the kids loved it. Cool

@ehBeth,
"Egyptian walking onions"

These sound wonderful. I've never heard of them.

They conjure up great images! Smile

I love the taste of walking onions. They are robustly flavored without the strong sting that is so disagreeable to me in some varieties of onion.

In my climate walking onions produce scallions (green onions) during the entire growing season. In hotter climates they may form a dormant bulb during the hottest part of the summer. The bulbils may be eaten as well. The bulbils are small, so I like using them in dishes that don't require peeling such as pickles or roasted onion.


you can use the root bulb, the green onion portion AND the bulbils at the top


an old onion porn thread ....

Okay so last night we stayed in and I made a delicious beef stroganoff, I added a little tomato paste to the recipe and it came out delicious!

The kids asked me to make it again!

@jcboy,
You guys eat gourmet food compared to our household. I enjoyed a bowl of cream of mushroom soup tonight. Yogurt for dessert.

@jcboy,
Kids loving zucchini is a big deal. As a squeemish kid I hated a lot of foods, including anything that wiggled (eggwhite, cover it up!, mayonaise, yogurt... oddly, jello was ok by me).

Since then, I grew up a bit and now love the last three, especially sliced zucchini roasted with lemon on the side. I'm still a picky egg person, it must be just right.

I've just finished making a stock using bacon bones and veggies in the slow cooker. Skimmed the fat off - so now it's waiting for....what? I have a whole bag of zucchinis and a bag of red peppers (on special). Hearty Vegetable soup?

Cold and wet long weekend here (happy birthday to some queen or other!) - so I need something warming.

@ehBeth,
Yes it does but I had to google Bacon Bones.

Quote:
In the past, bacon bones were part of quite a number of economical Australian and British recipes. Today, cooks generally use bacon bones for the tasty flavor they impart to soups and scrape the meat from the bones after they have been thoroughly cooked, discarding the bones. Bacon-bone soups are simple and easy to prepare and include scotch broth, tomato and pumpkin soup, bacon and lentil soup and cabbage and ham soup.

we must look like we're losing too much weight

today at the pool, M brought me bbq pork and T brought me char sui bao. then while I was sitting outside, little N ran up with croissants with egg salad "from Mom and Dad". Mom and Dad have a Japanese-French patisserie.

Dad's croissants are better than candy. I love to peel them apart <swoon>

Tonight we shared the bao. I had a split of dealcoholized champagne with mine. Very good.

Tonight I’m making teriyaki salmon over rice and a steamed vegi.

I’m also going to half some boneless chicken breast, put them in the crock pot with a large can of cream of mushroom soup, dice an onion,, add more mushrooms, celery stalk, garlic, salt and pepper. This will be for the kids lunch tomorrow since they’re out of school for the summer.

@jcboy,
Are they going to summer camp or who is taking care of them during the day?

@CalamityJane,
We have Elena. Day care provider, she takes care of them in our home. We had her even before we adopted the two little ones. She took care of Antonio when we first moved here because he felt he was too old for day care.

And tonight we’re going to order a pizza and antipasto salad. The kitchen is closed! Razz
