Amazing birthday dinner my house made for me

My housemates are amazing.

Caoimhin made me a perfectly cooked super thick steak (the kind that would go for like $70 at a steak house)

Mark made me French onion soup (super cheesy and amazing) and picked up this super delicious oak barrel aged ale.

The most amazing part? That dinner wasn't even planned (well except the steak). The real food is going to come at the party tmw night.

I couldn't ask for more amazing friends.

Smokey rice

Dinner/Snack for lazy people:

Wanted something easy for dinner, and an excuse to use the new smoked salt I bought. Went really light with the seasonings so it's subtle and amazing.

Rice boiled in applewood smoked sea salt then added a bit of BBQ sauce, creole seasoning and lime juice.

I'm satisfied.

Updates for all!

Hope everyone enjoys the inundation of old food posts. Got through all the easy ones, now I just need to make some process based posts.

Look forward to:

  • Pasta and red sauce
  • Scallion pancakes
  • Bahn Mi watermelon variation
  • Lotus root stir fry
  • tofu goulash
  • Beryl's Birthday Potluck

Excited yet? 

Also-- cooking club members, I am waiting for some interesting posts from you guys, or else you will be sitting at the kiddie table next event we have. 

Speaking of next events-- the next actual meal we do is probably going to be a large one. In interviewing members for my co-op I may have found us quite a few new members (yay!). Any suggestions for themes?

Garlic butter scallops pan seared.

Had a major Bergamot craving, so I tried to pull it off myself. Wasn't even close but that could have just been because of the scallops.

BBQ Spareribs
These were the most amazingly fun things to eat ever. Slow cooked for 4 hours the meat was falling off the bone. Amazing.
