My DH is really, really, really stubborn about this kind of thing.  I'm humoring him for this one more thing...though the part didn't arrive yesterday and he goes out of town for the weekend tomorrow. :(


I hope he appreciates you! I'm reaaalllly missing my oven. But I'm totally tapped out right now. It's all I can do to get the tree/rat thing resolved. I'm home until Sunday and then 8 days in Chicago.

But, I really wish I had an oven right now.

Sorry RA.  Lately, not sure he appreciates me all that much tbh.  It's ok, he's just overworked and there's a lot going on.  But the part did come tonight (spark module) and that was the one we think.  Oven seems to be lighting reliably.  I'll plan to bake something over the weekend that could go in the toaster if needed (like veggies) and we'll see.   :fingers: :fingers:

I had 2 cute little honeynut squashes waiting to be cooked so I took the plunge and turned on the oven.  It lit and ran for the 20+ minutes I needed to cook them.  And they were delicious.

Oooh! Yay! That sounds super yummy.

I'm looking forward to the time when cooking meals feels feasible again. It's 6:11 and I'm still working. Heading to the gym in 30 minutes and then dinner just for me. So will probably go to a neighborhood place on my way home from the gym for a bowl of soup. No! Wait! I have some curry lentil soup leftover from last week. Yeeessss.

I get it. We have ordered parts and repaired our 5 year old fridge like 6 times. I keep hoping my stove will die because I hate it and want a new one.

Southern Maryland stuffed ham.  The folklore is that this recipe originated with slaves who worked the local plantations.  Full disclosure, I haven't tried it yet, but I'm planning on serving it for the holidays.

This was delicious:

http://pressureluckcooking.com/recipe/instant-pot-cranberry-balsamic-brussels-sprouts/ and would probably be a great Thanksgiving dish.  I made it with this:


http://allrecipes.com/recipe/189966/balsamic-baked-tilapia/?event8=1&prop24=SR_Title&e11=tilapia&e8=Quick%20Search&event10=1&e7=Recipe  and just put the tilapia on top of the sprouts in big bowls.  Fabulous and ridiculously easy.  I did the fish in my cast iron skillet, so one pan in all for that.

Pear Hazelnut Gnocchi with Greens: http://foodanddrink.ca/lcbo-ear/RecipeController?language=EN&recipeType=1&action=recipe&recipeID=7187



some notes:
I made about 1/2 c. of pear paste (pear butter) from 6 ripe pears and 2/3 can of hard pear cider, just cooked it down to a paste, mashing in the pan when the pears softened enough... time consuming but simple... but time consuming, so worth buying pear paste or pear butter if you can.

I'd never made gnocchi before so I carefully followed the Serious Eats instructions but using 2 lbs (fresh weight) of potato for one egg yolk: http://www.seriouseats.com/2015/03/how-to-make-light-tender-potato-gnocchi.html and was very pleased with the results.

Also, I've gone off pinot grigio lately but have been into dry rieslings, so I used riesling.

The dish was way fantastically delicious... but took all afternoon to make...

This was delicious.  I've been on an Instant Pot kick and DH loves Indian food....he found this recipe.

http://www.carveyourcraving.com/instant-pot-spinach-chana-masala-vegan-gluten-free/ 

I only had canned chickpeas, and couldn't find Chana masala anywhere.  Google told me gharam masala plus a little lemon juice is a good substitute....I forgot the lemon juice, but the gharam masala worked.

I doubled it, other than that the pot settings were the same despite the canned beans.  Served over brown basmati rice, it was really good.


I made this last night and I didnít like it. DH liked it. I thought I would love it because I will eat chickpeas straight out of the jar. I used fresh tomatoes instead of canned sauce so maybe that was it.

Here's the butter chicken recipe I used last night.  Both Instant Pot and stovetop procedures are provided, but when I make this again, I'll use the stovetop method.  This was amazingly good.

My Cioppino rocked.  Actually, it was Giada's, but oh well.  Anyway, quite easy.  I used cod, tuna and mussels.  I also used serrano pepper flakes (some heritage spice club I got for Christmas).  It makes a ton so we will be eating it for the next 2 days.   :)

Basically, it's the Italian version of Bouillabaisse (and a lot easier to spell).  If you do have it, a tempranillo is the perfect red for it.

I used heavy cream opposed to evaporated milk and served with zucchini noodles. Holy shit good!
