    I've got a mate coming over for dinner tonight. He's a little complicated to feed because of FODMAPs intolerance to onions and garlic. Planning to do California roll your own hand rolls, miso soup with tofu and seaweed, pavlova for dessert.

    Not a meal, but I have beef stock cooking in the Instant Pot. I essentially only really use the thing for beans and stock but it's very good at both of those. Beef bones were on sale for $1.29/pound at the HMart (a national Korean chain) I went to and they had some flank steak that needed to be sold today that was $2/pound.

    It probably has another hour and a half or so in the IP and then will take forever to natural release. I'll likely let it cool in a large container before portining it into smaller jars for freezing as there is going to likely be a lot of fat that needs to be removed (and saved for some other purpose).

    And this, friends, is why buying "bone broth" is a waste of money when you can just make it yourself.

    Roll your own California hand rolls and miso soup. I forgot to take a picture of the raspberry pavlova until after we dug in.

    you like cooking?

    Welcome to the thread jc4meandu!

    If it's solely for myself, I do quite enjoy cooking (soups, stews, one pan roasts, on the grill and salads).

    For family and friends, even catering, I prefer to take directions, as an assistant to the lead in the kitchen, not at all opposed to maintaining a clear and clean kitchen as we work through the preparations from start to table.

    A quick soup with beef broth that I made earlier today, vermicelli noodles, korean style dumplings, and a chopped scallion. Could easily be improved by adding fish sauce, some sort of green, etc. That said, it was fast and good.

    Moroccan-style chicken with prunes, almonds, couscous. Pressure cook version. Served with side cucumber-tomato salad. Tastes great, even if the presentation isn't spectacular. Fast/easy in the cooker. Still have to figure the MFP macros. Tri-color couscous, by the way, accounting for the colored speckles.

    Another simple-ish, pre-Thanksgiving meal: slowcooker Italian-style chicken served over spaghetti squash and sauce, mixed veg on the side.

    Turkey smoked sausage with a sweet potato, pepper and onion hash.

    Very tasty (but a complete fail in terms of form!) sweet potato and harissa cakes.

    I’m experimenting with sweet potato because it’s something that I’ve always thought I didn’t really like but I’m discovering how good it is late in the day!

    I’ll take a tip from the post above me and use the rest of the mixture as hash! 😂

    I had my usual breakfast of 12oz of instant coffee, oatmeal with Smart Balance, brown sugar, and raisins. For lunch I'll have roasted turkey with cornbread dressing and green beans with homemade cranberry sauce. I've never been much on gravy, so no temptation there!
