    Braised boneless skinless chicken thighs, yams, and onions. It's as if I think it's Fall.

    Hubby normally cooks on weekdays but Wednesday is my work from home day so I volunteered. Green salad with home cured duck prosciutto and balsamic vinaigrette followed by linguine aglio olio stretched with some spiralized courgette.

    I made coconut chicken curry and rice last night. I was planning on just using a jar of pre-made sauce, but realized that I didn't have one once I had already started cooking my chicken and potatoes. Luckily I had a can of coconut milk, a jar of red thai chili paste, plus the necessary spices, so I was able to make homemade sauce. It came out a little too sweet originally because I was a little heavy handed with the brown sugar, so I had to add some lime juice and fenugreek to even it out.

    Hubby will pull out a batch of beef and guiness stew from the freezer tonight. Will have that with ranch mash and some tomato salad.

    Tomorrow it's my turn as I am the weekend and company cook. Easy dinner party. Doing air fryer wings in Vietnamese merchandising water. That's a sauce of very dark caramel mixed with fish sauce, so named because street vendors use it to give foods a shiny glaze. Also Vietnamese roast aubergine salad and sticky rice. For dessert I have a batch of chocolate sorbet made last weekend.

    I made beef stir fry and rice last night. Leftovers for lunch today.

    I make my own stir fry sauces now. I just combine soy sauce, fish sauce, garlic, onion flakes, sesame seeds, ginger powder, and red pepper flakes. I add some cornstarch in cold water at the end to make it sticky. I just discovered the wonder that is corn starch a few months ago. My mom always used flour as a thickener, so I never learned about corn starch.

    I also just realized that we've been on an Asian food kick this week. Ramen, curry, and now stir fry. Plus we had Korean take-out last week. Beef bulgogi and kimchi & pork fried rice.

    I asked the hubby for a squash to make Cambodian custard to use up some leftover coconut milk.

    Unfortunately he came with a big chunk of pumpkin, when you need a small whole squash for that recipe. Microwaving pumpkin to turn into gnocchi to freeze,

    Pumpkin gnocchi a total failure so far. That stuff when microwaved and pureed is very watery. I have already incorporated all the flour in the house and it is still to wet to handle like dough. Dumped all the gloop in a huge tupperware box in the fridge to deal with tomorrow, because tonight's dinner guests are arriving soon.

    For next time, I typically have very good luck making pumpkin puree by roasting the pumpkin. It is far less watery that way.

    Slow roasted "bbq" chicken thighs. I did a variation of this recipe but my spice mix involved 2 tbsp of brown sugar (~40g), 1 tsp of salt, 2 tbsp smoked paprika, and unmeasured but amounts of garlic powder, onion powder, and powdered mustard (probably around 2 tbsp each. I made the sauce using the drippings from the chicken along with around two tsp of honey and maybe a tbsp of apple cider vinegar.

    Currently the chicken and sauce are waiting and I have broccoli roasting in the oven.

    Butterfly chicken, with lemon and wine sauce, carrot and rutabagas mash and brown rice.

    Butterfly chicken (or spatchcock) is the #1 trick to make whole chicken juicy and tender everytime. It you never tried it, invest in a good pair of kitchen cisors and try it, you’ll never go back I promise!
