Joan–be sure to bake something particularly yummy to celebrate having your oven in working order again.
I made a new recipe for dinner on Friday: Crispy Oven Fish and Chips with Dill Tartar Sauce. The recipe was one featured in an email or online from the now closed Chefs Catalog. I used a pound of cod and adjusted the proportions accordingly. It called for toasting the panko used for breading the fish. As the fish only bakes for 15 minutes, that gives a nice golden crust. I also cut my potatoes into long wedges (large Russets into six each). The tartar sauce is exceptional. It uses mayonnaise, dill, minced dill pickle, lemon juice. I did not use grated onion, but I did use ¼ tsp. of Penzey’s roasted onion powder. The sauce was a hit with both the visiting son and my husband, as well as with me. I had only made a one-third recipe of it, but I might make a half recipe next time I make it for more than two people. It says a lot when dedicated ketchup eaters will consider tartar sauce as well.
I was hoping to post a link to the recipe, but with Chef’s Catalog gone, so is the recipe. If anyone is interested, I will post it at Nebraska Kitchen and note my changes.September 17, 2021 at 8:50 pm #31408Mike NolanKeymaster
We had takeout pizza and salad, plus Texas Chocolate Sheet Cake, nothing fancy but something we like and easy.September 18, 2021 at 7:45 am #31409cwcdesignParticipant
Belated Anniversary Congratulations to both Joan and Mike! What great milestones to reach:)
BakerAunt, I would love it if you would post the recipe. I like the idea of prefacing the panic – I don’t like how pale it looks on baked goods.September 18, 2021 at 11:44 am #31411
Auto-correct has sabotaged you, CWCdesign! I will post the recipe either today or tomorrow. I will post it with my changes, but will add a note about what the original recipe does. The cod I used was packaged cut into squarish pieces; it would work well for a fish fillet sandwich that would be scrumptious with the Tartar sauce.September 18, 2021 at 1:41 pm #31413Mike NolanKeymaster
The parts for the dishwasher, refrigerator and freezer should all be installed on Thursday.September 18, 2021 at 5:19 pm #31414Joan SimpsonParticipant
BakerAunt I haven’t baked anything yet except nachos but I will maybe tomorrow.
Tonight we had loaded nachos so not really cooking but it sure was good and easy.September 18, 2021 at 6:58 pm #31416
On Saturday, I made a Greek Pasta Salad—riffing on a recipe from the blog Olive Tomato by adding a purple and a brownish red bell pepper and using green onion tops We had it alongside leftover potato salad for dinner. I made my Zucchini-Turkey Loaf with Peach Dijon Mustard glaze for the entre.September 18, 2021 at 8:43 pm #31419cwcdesignParticipant
Oh my – it sure did. I’ll translate for anyone who was confused. Prefacing panic should have been “pre-baking panko.” This time auto-correct wanted to write Pan Korean.
But there is something to be said for prefacing panic . . . Sometimes it feels that way.September 18, 2021 at 10:14 pm #31420RiversideLenParticipant
I made a pork chop and had it with noodles.
