What's for Dinner #49 - the Falling Leaves Edition - Sept 2019

What’s become my standard Friday night dinner: steak tips with Ballymaloe steak sauce, a gigantic half a baked tater with TPSTOB and sour cream, and asparagus.

Oh yup. Wine.

Almost 61yo, and it still happens. To me, it’s the whole point of cooking…you screw up, you adapt and figure it out.

Oh, Sweetie, I may be double your age, and I find myself pulling off the weekly flop. There’s always Chalula or Guacamole Salsa.

We have 2 bushes @Ttrockwood and they produce from about mid July and usually last through September. Enough for us to enjoy and also share with the grownup kids. They’re wonderful to have.

I’m wanting to make shakshouka,

@pilgrim and @LindaWhit - Thanks for the support, it’s really kind of funny, makes me feel like I just started cooking :upside_down_face: and it was really awful. Just need to remember not to make that substitution again!

nice, thanks for this. i think the oil is key…

i’ve seen them made in pupuserias, where the women just flatten them into submission with their hands after they’re stuffed.

It’s hot here in San Francisco. For dinner, a sous-vide ribeye with béarnaise sauce. Used the béarnaise sauce recipe from here:

but it broke on me. I think I added the melted butter too quickly :neutral_face: . Luckily was able to fix it using this method described by Chef John:
