    @snowflake, I made some bacalao on the weekend too. A few weekends ago I got a weird hostess gift from a dinner guest who spends part of the year in Spain. She gifted me quite a lot of salt cod I am not sure what to do with.

    Croquettas pictured which I make into cubes because it is easier than rolling into the traditional shape. Cool the batter in the fridge in a rectangular container lined with baking paper where the mixture will be approximately 1 inch thick. Tip out cold congealed batter and cut into squares. Dip into beaten egg. If you are cooking in an oven or air fryer instead of the deep fryer it is easier to bread in greasy bread crumbs that has been mixed with a little olive oil instead of spraying finished croquettas with olive oil. I cooked a few in the air fryer and froze a few.

    I made mine like this: Big nonstick frying pan, add EVOO and chopped onions and garlic--simmer
    Add pieces of Baccala' skin side down add white wine
    Add chopped cherry tomatoes and season with crushed rosemary and salt, if necessary--the
    cod is usually salty
    Add precooked and sliced potatoes on top
    Cover and simmer 10 min.

    This was so good, and I even got compliments from my sons. I will for sure be making this again.

    More curry, Thai this time. It was a "I don't know what else I want to eat this week but I need to go grocery shopping today" decision. Green beans, yam, broccoli, Chinese eggplant, green beans, and onions. That is along with Mae Ploy red curry paste, a can of coconut milk, and about a few teaspoons give or take of fish sauce.

    I've learned that I am not a fan of cheapest, but very much not an Asian (or Latin American), brand of coconut milk that the closest grocery store to me sells. It was a last minute "I don't know if I have coconut milk and I forgot to get some when I was buying produce at the Korean grocery store" situation. Normally I just go with Aroy-D but oh well.

    Meatless monday so I had moroccan stewed chickpeas and veggies topped with roasted diced potato with a side of zataar manakesh.

    @aokoye Aroy-D or WholeFoods brand always.

    Crab meat and shrimp. Has three different kinds of cheeses and I have now added fresh jalapeños in it to slice it up. If you I don’t feel like paying for crab meat. I just do a pound of shrimp.
