Sukiyaki is another great meal for a chilly evening. Cooking at the dinner table is really fun too!
Tonight I made Chicken Tikka Masala from scratch, using this recipe. It turned out great! The procedure is pretty easy, as long as you have the ingredients. Mariko made naan in the cast-iron skillet, and we also had a pre-made mattar paneer to round out the meal.
I’m not sure if chicken tikka masala’s origin is India or the UK, but it’s delicious and a favorite in our family. It’s so satisfying to cook from scratch too. 😊
This delicious beef curry was made (by Mariko) with leftovers from our Thanksgiving meal. No, it’s not made of leftover turkey, but from the leftover pot roast we served alongside the turkey. Since the pot roast had carrots and potatoes, it was perfect to re-purpose as a curry. Add a couple of soft-boiled eggs, and you have a perfect meal. 😊🍛
Today we took a break from leftovers and went to Komé Sushi Kitchen for lunch. I like turkey, but a nice Japanese lunch of fried ebi, oysters, miso soup, rice, and a selection of nigiri sushi was definitely welcomed!
Of course for dinner, leftovers is on the menu. 😆
Happy Thanksgiving! Well, the dry-brined turkey turned out great. It’s funny, because after Thanksgiving each year, I think to myself that I should roast a turkey (small one) more than just once a year since it is so easy. But I never do…
Anyways, this year two other families joined us and everyone’s children are getting bigger. And they have started bringing their girlfriends/boyfriends as well, which is new. There were six “kids” this year, three college freshman, and three in high school – they really do grow up so fast!
I hope you had a nice holiday if you celebrated!
