Its been a busy month and Ive been pretty lazy. Here are some random pics.
went bowling with the Belshes and Dieckmans. Had to get the bucket o beer. Was too cheap to pass up!
Then the very next day our friends Amy and Nakia wanted to go bowling! WUUUUT so we went to Mission Bowling Club in SF. Pretty nice!!!
The foods pretty good there. I guess theres a chef that worked at Mission Chinese cooking there.
corn doggies and fried chicken on sticks
then we eat at home. Amina made this iron skillet roasted mussel dish and we dipped with hot butter. yumo!
I made some mushroom risotto
squid on rocket salad
lamb chop and parsnip puree
salmon with the risotto and roasted cauliflower.
Then I tried to make this simple pork terrine with pork belly and ground pork
Its got pork, brandy, garlic, parsley, orange zest, salt, and thyme.
Line the loaf pan with bacon.
after letting the mixture above sit overnight in the fridge you add an egg to bind
fill the loaf pan
hug the meatzilla with the bacon. **hUgZ**
wrap in foil and bake in a bain marie for a while. AND!!! it tasted bad. The amount of orange zest the recipe called for was wayyy too much the entire thing just tastes like meaty oranges. Anyhow Im going to grind the whole thing back up and add more powerful seasonings and make some sort of stuffing out of it. Booo on the recipe. Tastes so bad it doesnt deserve another picture!!!!
The lamb at Arcadia. Sadly nothing special about it.
same with the tomohawk steak
and this is how we ate the leftovers... as drinking snacks. HAHAH pass the steak yo. Quit bogarting.
and as if dinner wasnt heavy enough this was my breakfast
the hotel we stayed at had a bidet. I unfortunately did not use it. I did use one in Japan that made me waste so much time it was ridiculous.
