    Yesterday, The Wife made us a caprese salad with burrata for a light lunch. For dinner, I made us ceviche with halibut, shrimp, and scallops.

    I lunched on a salad with lettuce and little tomatoes from my very own little garden! Oh, and then I discovered that the little plum tree that's never done anything since we bought this place in 1997 has gone and produced these!

    Trivial stuff that bugs/amuses me: I took that picture in landscape format, although with the camera pointed mostly straight down. When I put it on the computer it showed up portrait in the file manager, then opened in landscape in the editing program. The thumbnail shows as landscape in my other forum, but portrait here. I can't wait to see how it'll look after I post and click on it.

    ETA: Wow! It was portrait as I was composing the post, and now that I'm editing it. But the thumbnail shows up landscape and then goes portrait when you click on it!

    We are having the grandkids ( 4 & 6) l over for a sleepover during the school holidays and asked them if they wanted Sushi for lunch. As it is a favourite of both of them there was an enthusiastic response. We let them choose and they both said that they only liked avacado ones. My wife then bought some teriyaki chicken and crispy chicken ones for us.

    When it came time for their lunch I was outside in the garden. I went in for my lunch to find that not only had they demolished their avocado ones but they had suddenly decided that they liked chicken Sushi as well and ate most of them as well. They did leave us a couple of pieces. (My wife was with them so they didn't 'snatch' the chicken ones but asked politely - ish for them. It is actually nice to see their tastes expanding all the time.)

    Just because I'm not that familiar with sushi outside Japan, are they rolls, like crispy chicken in the middle, surrounded by rice, and then surrounded by nori? Or are they like onigiri (triangle-shaped)?
    As above, so below

    The first type not onigiri.

    Edit: If you are interested here is a link to the menu - it is just a small shop in the local shopping centre.

    I finally got around to wet brining a whole chicken. It’s easy enough to do, but you need to make enough room in the fridge and adding in the inconvenience of the long lead time before it can be cooked, I haven’t tried it until now. Results were good, it does make the meat moister and the mild saltiness of the meat really brings out the flavor. I tried adding garlic and some other stuff to the brine but my impression is the extra stuff mainly went to waste and just made initial work and cleanup harder. I don’t usually eat much skin and I couldn’t taste much of anything I added to the brine in the meat. Now I’m wondering if there is any reason to go beyond just plain brine. Incidentally, is there really a point to putting anything (like garlic or other things) in the interior cavity? I’ve tried a few recommended variations on this when cooking a chicken but it never seems to me to add any noticeable flavor.

    Despite the issues I do plan on brining again, it really is tasty.

    My brother-in-law came to Perth yesterday to visit us for a couple of days. The farm where he lives is just under 300 km away. As he lives about 40 km outside a small town his choice of restaurant food is pretty limited so we usually go out for a meal when he comes. Today we went to a small 'Malaysian' cafe a few km's away for lunch. The food is pretty much exactly what you would be served in a similar place in Malaysia and was pretty good value, for Australia, for about the equivalent of $23 US. We ordered three dishes but two would have been plenty and we are not small eaters.

    Biryani Rice with Lamb Curry, Spicy chicken and three different vegies.

    I know that you are just being jocular but I did feel a bit of guilt about posting my photos considering the circumstances in some places. However, I thought that it was at least something cheerful to talk about. Plus, I also thought that many on here may have not run across authentic versions of this sort of food very often, if at all.

    Just got back from town and picked up some suishi and put a little to much wasabi on a piece.

    We have some friends who are wild about Mexican food. They sometimes invite members of the family over to make Tamales. It's an all day, all hands on deck project resulting in a very large batch of tamales which they share with us.

    My family emulated them recently, so we had homemade tamales filling our fridge, and have been eating off them for three days. We're down to our last few today. I just finished some, they're delicious.

    Yesterday for lunch, I cut the middle out of a slice of bread, put some butter on it, plopped it on the griddle and dropped some bacon pieces and an egg in the hole. Cooked for a couple of minutes, flipped for a couple, and ate. Very good.

    New Years Eve day I cooked a turkey just for me. For the first time, I wet brined the turkey using a kit. It is definitely a pain (itís heavy and you need to make lots of room in the fridge, also you need to be very careful to keep it from spilling) but the results were good. I kept the side dishes simple - salad, mashed potatoes, homemade cranberry sauce (I hate canned), also not really a side dish, but I had some very ripe bananas and made banana bread the same day.

    Itís made for a number of meals. I really like turkey sandwiches with the right sourdough bread.

    Oh, and a couple of days later I made chocolate chip oatmeal cookies. I donít consider myself much of a cook, so that was new for me, but I used to love homemade oatmeal cookies and this was the first time I had them for a long time. They turned out great. Store cookies range from inedible to okay but not that good. For one thing, store cookies are often far too soft (I always liked crispy cookies) and seem half cooked to me. This reminded me of what proper cookies taste like.

    I donít cook much, especially when living alone - itís harder to work up enthusiasm so usually go for the quickest and easiest options. But it is nice to do a bit more work once in awhile especially if it results in a fair number of meals.

    I envy your turkey dinner. Especially the leftovers. Perhaps I'll make some soup soon, I've got frozen stock.

    I've been watching my diet, as noted in other threads. It's getting tiresome. I want a dang burger!

    I'm the designated maker of Sunday breakfast for the house. It's the only day of the week we get have a more substantial, self-indulgent morning meal together. Sometimes, it's pancakes and I've long used a cast iron griddle that sits over the stove's oval center burner. It's well seasoned from years of use and care and I like cooking with it a lot. Oh, but my head was turned by a beastly beauty that showed up in my Facebook feed: a flattop griddle that covers the entire stovetop.

    By rights, I should blame my sister for this because she shared it with me and my mother. Of course, my mother egged things on. Still, I didn't jump right up and buy it. I checked it out. I thought it over. I went to the website and put one in the shopping cart to see what shipping charges to Alaska would be. Fifty dollars. Not bad at at all considering it's 27" x 20" and weighs 30 pounds (686 mm x 508 mm, 13.6 kg).

    But I still wasn't quite ready to buy it. I was still mulling it over, until...until...the sneaky, underhanded tricksters sent me an e-mail containing a 10% discount code. You see, their shopping cart doesn't provide shipping estimates up front. I had to go through the motions of checking out and that's when they got my e-mail address...and they got me. They triggered my predator/prey response and I bit.

    I think I'll make pancakes this Sunday and not just two at a time. Welcome to the Peters Creek Cafť.

    Speaking of Sunday, we made our usual tagteam production of cooking entirely too much food for two people just because it was Superbowl Sunday. I'm no football fan by any means (US or otherwise) but I am a fan of food.

    My contributions were sesame-almond chicken wings and fried dumpling with pork shu mei. I also made a dipping sauce for both from soy, rice wine vinegar, shaved green onion and ginger, and a touch of sesame oil. You can also see some elk 'smokies' with blackberry-bourbon barbecue sauce in the green bowl, which my wife prepared.

    I'm on a diet since my diabetes diagnosis three months ago. I think I hate you.

    Also: You call that a griddle? This is a griddle!

    Thatís pretty impressive but Iíd hate to pay shipping on that hawg. The manufacturer of mine does make a pro model thatís twice as thick (3/8Ē or 9.5 mm) but I donít wanna heft 60-ish pounds of steel before breakfast.

    I would even pretend to have some interest in American football just to be invited to share that repast! The food looks gorgeous.
