    Thai basil chicken from a couple of nights ago. Super quick… maybe 15 mins all in. Worth adding to the weeknight rotation. 


    Love Thai basil. Non stop harvest all summer here. Experimented with vac seal as is and freeze. Opened a pack to sample and pleasantly surprised, it’s almost as good as fresh flavour wise.

    Does it turn black like in ziplock frozen.  The black doesn't affect flavor but needs to be used in darker sause or it does not look right
    Chamber sealed and frozen a week ago. So far hasn't turned black yet, time will tell?

    We have vac pac’d sweet and Thai Basil for the last 3yrs. From our experience it stays green until you open it then goes dark.  Flavors are still fresh but the leaves themselves are a bit limp after thawing.  Works great for sauces but not visually appealing for a dish like Thai Basil Chicken.

    chili for the weekend

    starter kit of various dried chilis simmered in guinness


    bowl of red


    with crema


    then some chili mac


    Looks delicious.  I would like to try that chili, the chili with crema, and the chili mac.   As a sidebar, the lawn in the background does not appear to align with what I know about you.

    Flank steak tacos.  The shells had a "Best used by" date of April, 2012.   :|
     
    Think I'll swing by the market this afternoon before heating up any leftovers.

    @MasterC - That is a killer cook and banquet right there.  That $$ shot has my kind of finish-nailed it.  (Every picture tells a story don't it...Rod Stewart).  
    Great skill set right there.  Congrats.

    It has been a few years since I posted up my thoughts regarding the $$$$ shot and we have many new members-Here's a link to a throwback thread-

    Does the Money ($$$$) shot tell the story of the cook?

    Stay healthy and safe out there-

    Enjoy 
    And forget those "need green on the plate" people. This counts as a salad.

    You are one righteous dude.
  • Toasted bagel sandwich from a day or two back. Featuring salami, sharp cheddar, mayo, Dijon, avocado, dressed spinach and pickles. Served with homemade chunky ketchup.


    I was with you on this right up until the ketchup.  I’m sure it’s great ketchup, just seems weird to me paired with that sandwich.

    Not really a traditional ketchup. In truth, more of a relish or chutney by definition, I suspect. Great recipe. https://www.ricardocuisine.com/en/recipes/4398-homemade-chunky-ketchup-the-best
