    I'll be baking Pumpkin Cream Cheese Dump Cake for a potluck tonight. Because the first day of fall calls for something pumpkin, even if it's still 70 degrees outside.

    I know, I'm lame. But it's the most I can seem to manage nowadays.

    (last week, I used the slow cooker to cook a pork loin with bagged sauce to have pork BBQ meals for a few days. It actually was good. But I haven't done much from scratch at all in recent years.)



    I was always looking for a decent way to make General Tso's (or sesame chicken) in terms of the batter, but I don't want to use a deep fryer. It never seems to cook in the cool lumpy way the restaurants do.

    I've used this recipe many times. I have also used a tempura batter, I don't like that as much as the cornstarch this recipe uses.

    Cooked lots today so I'll have mason jar lunches all week plus extra.

    I made poha (Indian breakfast dish made with flattened rice), a roasted potato and fennel soup, and a pasta with asparagus, mushrooms and balsamic cream sauce. I have lots of leftover borscht and a mixed vegetables and coconut milk curry from yesterday and I'm going to maybe make baingan bharta (charred eggplant cooked with tomatoes and onions Indian style) tomorrow so my eggplant doesn't go bad. OMG so much food but this is what happens when you lack the ability to control yourself in the produce section.

    I'm cooking with friends tonight and we're gonna make among other things a mushroom, broccoli and bell pepper stir fry with Thai peanut sauce.

    Heated up leftovers of a very special meal I made the other day.

    It's not that special, really. But it's special to me because, even though I just made it up based on laziness and what food I had lying around, it got me to enjoy eating again after having an upset stomach for over a week.

    Recipe in spoiler tags below.



    TLDR, it's basically spaghetti with homemade tomato sauce. But I made up the sauce. And I'm amazed that it actually behaved like a sauce in the end (i.e. sticking to the pasta).

    It's noodle soup season, motherf*ckers!!

    Bought a pack of instant udon noodle soup from the Korean grocery -- three servings for $4.50 and it doesn't taste half bad! You boil a cup of water, add the noodles, cook for one minute, add a liquid packet (mostly soy sauce) and a seasoning packet (mostly bonito flakes and seaweed), and cook for another minute. It's a tad salty but still way better than I expected. And what a deal!

    So, today for lunch I cooked up a serving of that instant udon soup, sautéed some salad greens that had wilted in the fridge and added those, and topped it with a seven-minute egg. Would have added scallions but didn't have any lying around.

    A chinois strainer will solve the consistency issue.

    I finally succeeded at making lamb shanks with mint sauce. They were delicious.

    I also made fried potatoes with bell pepper and onions. I could never get those right in the past, never the right texture. No matter which pan I used they'd stick. So I tried putting them in a cast iron pan on cooking them on the BBQ. Now they're perfect every time.

    That sounds really good. I have several lbs of tomatoes from my garden I dunno what to do with. Maybe this,

    FYI: maybe you already know or even care but; shocking tomatoes ( boil for about 30 sec and then toss into ice water) is a great way to get rid of the skins. ( I hate tomato skins. They make me gag.)

    Try it! I'll bet it would be even better with some sprucing up. Maybe adding some onion to the tomatoes while they're cooking. Or some fresh basil. Maybe using butter instead of olive oil would be better too.

    Really? I have no opinion either way -- didn't occur to me that tomato skins could be polarizing!

    While I knew the trick about blanching tomatoes, I just didn't care enough at the time.

    Yep. Peaches too, the skin just slides off. I like a food mill for making sauce - no skin, no seeds, very nice but not everyone has a food mill. A fine strainer will also work.
