  1. My wife and I are down here for the first time in 2 years (no kids!). So next few days I’ll be posting our eating journey. Love this place it’s magical started with lunch today at Salve Asador de Campestre aguachiles, ceviche, tuna rolled tacos and grilled octopus. 100 degrees outside so good food/weather
  2. @tony b funny I was literally thinking about making something similar last night after watching Rick Bayliss make a show cooked beef rib with a mole sauce. I did a slow cooked beef rib then put it into a sauce for another 8 hours and put it over pappardelle pasta last year on news years Eve and it was luxurious. Very rich though i agree with you that the beef rib is incredible but I find it’s a special occasion dish as it is very rich, but I think you’ll see me cooking one in the not to distant future as it’s been on my mind a bit. You’re looks lovely as usual iM hungry now
  3. Happy birthday @C6Bill. Looks like a great meal to celebrate a milestone birthday. Well done
  4. Saw this article about it this morning on my news feed. https://qz.com/2060418/why-are-so-many-container-ships-waiting-to-dock-in-california/ hang in there Dennis!
  5. Thanks @Tuck I know that brand Incas food it’s legit and candidly I’m still working on my Pollo a la brasa marinade. I was planning on going to Peru last March and nailing down a few recipes but that trip got cancelled due to the pandemic
  6. @Tuck looks good. I’d love to see the recipes you used for the sauce and chicken.
  7. Homemade Green Curry Paste Green curry with chicken, snow peas, red, yellow & orange bell peppers, sweet onions and oyster mushrooms super tasty. Green curry is my standard Thai dish that I judge Thai places by. This is better than my neighborhood Thai restaurants. So easy to make once you have the paste
  8. @BOC I agree I tried my hand baking bread last year at the beginning of the pandemic abs found it was too much effort. Same with tortillas I can buy excellent freshly made bread and tortillas locally so I search out the proper store to purchase bread rather than waste my time with it @Basher I’ll send you a DM
  9. Everything is done and purchased. We’re keeping the cabinets and restaining them. Tile floor, new backsplash, new countertops, new fridge, dishwasher, sink, faucet new range top and new vent fan wife and I do our research online then didn’t answer entire day shopping at stores, it’s what we’ve done on all our home projects but she and I can make decisions quickly but we do loads of research online prior. Just waiting for the kids birthdays and parties in October plus a lot of electronics are back ordered but we have our final meeting with the contractor we’ve selected tomorrow but anticipate an early November start date. I will post some pics before/after when it’s that time
  10. @BOC looks great. Do you make your own naan or purchase it somewhere? I prefer naan to pita as well but I’ve never tried to make it nor found a good spot locally to purchase
  11. I used to make my own Thai curry pastes but haven’t made it in at least 4 years so I decided to make my red & green curry pastes on Sunday. I go to the Thai market and get all the stuff and every time I go there the lady says “oh is this for your wife?” And I tell her “no it’s for me”. This time she responded by saying “wow you make very traditional curry paste, most foreigners don’t know to use shrimp paste”. I took it as a compliment tonight I used the red curry paste to make red curry with flank steak, red, yellow & orange bell peppers, sweet onion, oyster mushroom, mango, pineapple, Thai basil, lime zest & fish sauce. Served over jasmine rice. Pretty tasty and my jar of curry paste will last 3 months+ so super easy to make all kinds of currys quickly once the paste is made
  12. @tekobowhen you take your trip here and to Mexico I’ll stuff you full of tuna. The bluefin is $16/lb which is incredible at a sushi restaurant you’ll pay $16 for two pieces of nigiri. It’s one of my favorite parts of living in San Diego having access to super high quality seafood that’s fairly inexpensive. I buy directly from the fisherman so it’s usually 24-48 hours out of being in the sea
  13. @Basher you’re not going to believe it but we are actually about to do our kitchen as well. Not as major a renovation job as yours but it will be a complete facelift/makeover. Work projected to take two weeks, starting Nov 1. I seem to be following your lead on backyard remodel and now kitchen so I wonder if a Santa Maria grill will be showing up on my patio sometime soon…..
  14. New Zealand salmon grilled over mesquite wood tricolor quinoa with sweet onions, carrots abs celery two chicken breasts for quesadillas on Wednesday night
  15. @C6Billid be interested in seeing what kind of chicken salads you make. I usually buy the value pack at whole food where you get 6-8 breast for $17-$22 and I cook them on Sunday night after I do a big KK cook. I usually do one of three things with them 1. Summer strawberry chicken salad with candied walnuts, strawberries, arugula, Parmesan cheese & raspberry vinaigrette 2. vegetable salad with carrots, cucumbers, bell peppers, avocados, chicken, spring mix, Parmesan cheese & raspberry vinaigrette 3. grilled chicken quesadillas with homemade flour tortillas, oregano, garlic powder shredded cheese and sliced avocado on top I try to eat somewhat healthy when I can but I struggle for healthy chicken salad ideas and usually end up doing the same thing over abs over. I’ve posted all 3 of those dishes before but stopped because I cook them so much and they are so “boring” that I didn’t want to piss off @tony b or @MacKenziewith my pedestrian chicken breast dishes every week 😀
  16. Local bluefin tuna, soy sauce & siracha
  17. Letting my KK take a breather this weekend and I’m making a few different dishes next few days that I’d like to share tonight is seared scallops served with a sweet corn, red onion, orange & yellow bell pepper, applewood smoked bacon, heavy cream and chive sauce/succotash
  18. Troble

    Do you like Sausage?

    Looks good @Tyrus I’d eat one
  19. @jonj looks like you nailed it. Glad you enjoyed it, it’s time consuming but very fun and generally impresses your guests. Glad you all have enjoyed it
  20. Flat iron steak rubbed with Santa Maria seasoning. Served with homemade chimichuri Sweet corn on the cob sweet potato w/Greek yogurt
  21. Too busy hosting my cousins and keeping an eye on 6 kids to take photos but made lamb shawarma on the Trompo king
  22. My local butcher started selling these pre-formed Wagyu brisket cheeseburgers. I bought some a few weeks ago for a little party my wife had and everyone was raving about them. I was too busy to take pics that time but tonight I picked up a few for my family put a little Montreal steak seasoning on the patties, grilled with some mesquite wood, brioche bun, romaine lettuce, tomato. Pretty good burger frozen sweet potato crust cut fries & ceased salad
