What's for Dinner #384 - The Isn't it Labor Day Yet? Edition

Shopping today wasn't too bad (MIL opted out).

40 pounds of Napa cabbage, 30 pounds of daikon, couple of pounds of green onion and garlic, fish sauce, and some ginger. All the fixins for a new batch of kimchi.

Min is also making cucumber kimchi with cukes from the garden.

Grilled chicken tonight with corn on the cob, peppers, green onion, and garlic cloves (all grilled). Fresh cucumbers and raw chili peppers from the garden, kimchi, and rice as sides.

Can't sleep so turned to kitchen play for late night munchies.

Korean peppers stuffed with pepperoni and beaten egg, then fried.
Pepperoni, ham, and roast beef dipped in egg, then fried.
Hit the spot so maybe I can hit the sack soon.

Took a couple days off to get a four day weekend, so Min puts me to work in the garden. Pruning, trimming, cutting, weeding ......
I'm also drafted for shopping run with Min and Mother in Law for tomorrow.(sigh)

Jeyuk Bokkeum (Spicy Stir Fried Pork) again tonight. Cukes and peppers from the garden.

Cooking meat without a grill

A one burner butane or propane stove and a grill plate. Inexpensive and works great with Korean or Asian style thin sliced meats and vegetables.
You can get them in many Korean markets, or on line from H-Mart or Amazon.

Real (digital) camera.
An old Canon Powershot A590 with only 8 mega pixels.
Natural lighting - no flash.
Love this one because of the macro ability.

Grazing again.

Stacked roast beef and ham sammich (red bell pepper,onion, Korean omelet, Korean pickled cuke, and cheese) as soon as I got home from work.
Grazing for the rest of the night is from our garden:
Cucumbers
Peppers
garlic chives
leaves (don't know the name)

All dipped in ssamjang, wrapped in kimchi, or eaten plain.

It really is better than most of the restaurant versions I've tried, although there have been a couple of exceptional dishes.

Min is doing fine, just has to get lab work every few months for long term medication usage (thyroid and arthritis).

Buttered with cinnamon was always a favorite when growing up.

Flour Tortillas - What do You do With Them ?

Haven't thought of that one.

Have done a "Pot Pie" with the smaller sized ones.

Another long day.
Boss took myself and the other two top slots to a congratulatory/forward goals lunch meeting because we are apparently doing "SOMETHING RIGHT" (close to the lowest shrink % in the company, making budget AND a profit, record sales for the past two months, etc etc) . To the Casino buffet.

Got home late, Min pawned dinner off on me (no blame, she had a full day with medical appointments and blood labs). Went with something vaguely like that Chinese Generals Chicken dish (sweet/sour/spicy with crispy breaded chicken and assorted peppers), call it "That Damn Captain's Chicken" since there's a General and a Colonel already associated with chicken.

Was good and hit the spot after the Meh buffet.

Flour Tortillas - What do You do With Them ?

I prefer the uncooked tortillas we get from Costco, but they aren't large enough for some of the things we use them for so I also get Mission.
My mother used to make them from scratch but I never got her recipe, and like you said - not fond of the process.
Wish there was a place nearby that made fresh for sale.

Flour Tortillas - What do You do With Them ?

In the "Whats for Dinner" thread, I posted about a couple of the things I have done with flour tortillas.

Cherry Tortilla Pie - Cherry pie with flour tortillas for the crust. Buttered flour tortilla, cherry pie filling sprinkled with brown sugar, another buttered tortilla for the top crust, sprinkled with sugar and cinnamon, then baked until the tortilla begins to brown.

Tortizza - Pizza toppings on tortillas. Flour tortilla topped with cheese, second tortilla topped with pizza sauce and assorted toppings, baked until browned.

Other than the usual Mexican/Tex-Mex or deli wraps, what uses do you find for flour tortillas?

Kimchi fried rice with over easy egg again tonight.

Up thread talked about cherry pie made with flour tortilla for the crust - that sent me down memory lane and so -

Cherry Tortilla Pie

What's for Dinner #383 - The Shank of the Summer Edition! [through August 28, 2015]

As a young un-married service member, you pick up a few things.
Try the tortilla fruit pie -
place a large flour tortilla into a buttered pie tin, making sure that the tortilla edge comes up the side to form the crust.
Butter the top of the tortilla.
Add Hot cherry pie filling (or filling of your choice), sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon.
Place a second tortilla on top to form the top crust, (Seal edges with egg wash and crimp together).
Butter the top of the tortilla and sprinkle with sugar.
Place in oven at 425 and bake until tortilla starts to brown.

Stayed with the vaguely tex-mex theme tonight. Ground beef browned, with poblano and red chilies, onion, re-fried beans, some Rotel, a splash of soy sauce, some oregeno, cumin, and basil. Slapped into a flour tortilla with cheese then covered with the mix.

Try the BLT with cheese version - strips of crispy bacon, red leaf lettuce in strips, and the firmest part of tomato. Add shredded cheese and roll.

No smoke meant taking MIL shopping today. That meant going to the Vietnamese store, the Korean store, Costco, Cash n Carry, and Lowes Home Improvement. Of course they are spread out from north central to the east side of town.
And nothing to eat except a few pieces of Kimbap early this morning.

Finally home and settled went with spicy pork and chicken with hatch chilies, jalapeno, onion, and red chili on toasted flour tortilla. Smothered with cheese and folded.

LoL

Yeah hot dogs. American franks are actually a close fit to one of the Korean sausages that is often used in Kimbap.

Also sometimes use Spam, but that is an addition due to American military in Korea during the Korean war and after, like the popular soup Buddae Jjigae which was born from military ration packs and canned meats, and married to Korean noodles.

This morning we used cucumber strips, fishcake (sliced flat sheet type), pickled radish, sliced egg sheets, and sauteed carrot (sesame oil, soy sauce, sugar).
Other additions we often use include ham strips, burdock root, doragi (bellflower root), bunch type spinach, hot dogs, and/or kimchi.

Clear Air.
Day off.
Clear Air.
Cool morning temps.
Clear Air!!!!!!

Son is attending Sasquan (Worldcon/World Science Fiction Convention) here in Spokane and decided he wanted to carry lunch today instead of go to the local restaurants. So up early on a day off to fix up some Kimbap and Fishcake Soup to send off with him.

No idea yet what will be for dinner tonight.

Did I mention we have clear air this morning?

Fallen firefighters.
More evacuations.
Smoke literally blanketing huge areas far outside the fire zones.
National Guard mobilized in certain areas.
Firefighters from Australia and New Zealand arriving.
Even getting monster dust devils reaching the size of houses and towering hundreds of feet tall.

Min surprised me by asking for a repeat of the tortizza tonight, so tortizza and rollups the order of the day.

Nice to see you back.

General Soup Question...

Depends on what flavor you want from the meat.
A quick sear at high heat, then adding with the tofu to finish yields a better (to me) flavor for the meat.
Adding the meat to the broth raw and cooking will add some of the meat flavor to the broth.

"I don't know what the turkey vultures do but it has to be something cool."

Cleans up messy leftovers and motorist/wildlife intersects.

Ready meals?

They look similar to the "Main Dish" component of some of the MREs Phreddy referenced. IF they are anything like the MREs they could be very good or very bad, depends on your taste preferences.

I spent 20 years in the military and ate a lot of the various iterations of military field rations, from c-rats to MREs, and really enjoyed some of them.
