    Buttermilk & Cornmeal-Fried Okra, Take 1
    Warning: Food appears more delicious than it actually was. :D

    Reading the recipe, it didn't seem like it was going to work very well but against my better judgment, I blindly followed it anyway. Not only did the dredged coating (2 parts flour, 1 part cornmeal after a dunk in buttermilk) not stick to the okra, but it cooked too fast, so the okra was still fibrous after the exteriors were done. If I'd cooked it at a lower temperature, I don't think the exterior would have fried correctly. Maybe I should have instant-potted and cooled the okra first or cut it into smaller pieces.

    After Round 1 of frying, I realized that the recipe wasn't working, called an audible and added sparkling water and a beaten egg to the flour/cornmeal mixture. It went slightly better from there but by then the oil had all sorts of debris in it from Round 1 and it was not cooking efficiently. All in all, I'd describe this overall effort as the Epic Okra Fail of 2020. I often defend okra to those who don't like it but as far as I'm concerned, we're no longer friends. Okra doesn't behave nicely like squash blossoms. I should have taught it a lesson and stewed it! :lol:

    Working in an izakaya in Japan we used a single edge razor to slice okra into a bowl of ice. Chilled and snotty was the goal. Yuzu kosho or togarashi was the go-to garni.

    Yeah, I think that would have been better. I thought ~1" was adequate but maybe it wasn't. Even the really small tips were fibrous, though. Not giving up but if I get another pack of okra in a future box, I'm more likely to stew it or pickle it than fry it.

My overall food costs from 3/16/20 - 7/25/20 (groceries, restaurants, bar, liquor, wine, etc.) were down a whopping 36% from the same period in 2019. Not surprisingly, the categorical ratios almost completely flipped year over year, too.

    In the 2019 period, these expenses were ~20% groceries and 80% restaurant/bar. In the 2020 period, grocery expenses have been 74% of total food, while restaurant/bar have only been 26%. I haven't been to a bar since March 13 so, the latter figure is largely wine and spirits (some purchased from local restaurants). Through that lens, even that expense is deceptively high since it could arguably be categorized as grocery rather than restaurant/bar. In any case, the overall savings have been significant . . . enough to fund a nice knife habit! :D

    =R=


    I'm a data guy too and was curious how my household numbers compared. The numbers confirmed my hunch that we were just about flush– with groceries up 35% and eating out down 64%.

    The surprise here is that our eating out costs are pretty level with the groceries- cheap! With small kids at home & move to the burbs with limited options, we never go out to dinner (which also saves in the booze column.) So its all take out, chain lunches for her in Dekalb, and mom-and-pop joint lunches for me in the city.

    Also, I keep a separate column for booze, which is 100% store bought. There hasn't been a significant change in that expense.

    Its still blowing my mind that we're spending $800- $900 a month on groceries!

    Just wondering if any of your grocery expenses are “entertainment” related though—meaning more cooking projects—and if you factored that into the analysis.

    I wouldn't say that. I mean there was a bump in expenses in May around a birthday–some nice cheese, some skirt steak, but nothing too extravagant. Projects have veered on the cheap side ingredient-wise, bread baking & kimchi. But making that stuff from scratch tends to save money.

    As discussed upthread, I have noticed a general increase in grocery prices, there certainly seems to be less sales.

    Oh also, the preschooler is not eating lunch at school and some of that kid-friendly convenience food adds up– hotdogs, lunchmeat, chicken nugs, & the like. Why do kids love high-sodium, processed meat so much?!

    As someone who grows okra regularly, fibrous okra is the result of picking when the pods are overly mature. In hot weather okra needs to be picked every day or two. Otherwise you will have some fibrous pods. Longer cooking or moist heat will not soften the fiber.

    Tomato-Cucumber-Feta Salad & Kurosaki Fujin VG10 Gyuto, 210mm
    Really tasty salad. Even thought the tomatoes we're getting in our CSA aren't very good yet (the early outdoor tomatoes aren't as tasty as the greenhouse tomatoes we were getting before them), they take to doctoring quite nicely. We dressed this with evoo, red wine vinegar, a small, microplaned clove of garlic and some basil from our garden (also s&p).

    With homemade potato salad, instant-potted esquites (corn also not quite there yet but improved over last week), tomato-cuke-feta salad and some low-grade andouille that I grilled because it was a pretty small hanger for three people.

    Even though the sun had dropped behind the trees, it was sweltering out by the grill. I'm glad we kept it to a minimum amount of effort tonight and used no more than the instant pot inside the house.

    Just saying, the recipe called for bell pepper, but I don't like them much, so I upped the onion, way too many! Next time, I'll add some celery and ??? Also, I cut up way more ginger than called for, so I left it as match sticks and through it in as well, should have diced it.

    Not bad, but the sauce seemed heavy tasting to me. Next time I'll reduce the Hoisin sauce and Oyster sauce a bit and up the vinegar and soy sauce, see what happens. I had forgotten my dried peppers lost a battle to pantry moths, so I used some pepper flakes instead.

    The beef is coated with baking soda, salt, cornstarch, water, and oil. I refrigerated it overnight. The beef was very tender, but the sauce overpowered the beef taste.

    I've been making Yogurt & Turmeric-Marinated Chicken for so long, we actually call it yellow chicken because when my son was little, that's what he called it. Well, now that he's 23, he still calls it that and says that it's his favorite of my grilled chicken tricks. :D

    It actually ended up being a yellow dinner kind of night . . .

    Yellow chicken for me as well, Southern Style Thai Grilled Chicken from SheSimmers blog. SomTam, sticky rice, prik nam pla, sweet sauce for chicken and loads of crunchy veg. Two types of Thai sausage as well. Over the years I've made Thai grilled chicken numerous times, this is the best version to date.

    Sounds loads better than my mother's infamous white dinner. She claims it was an accident, but one night the meal was broiled whitefish, tartar sauce, mashed potatoes and steamed cauliflower. We never forgave her.
    The mashed potatoes sound alright, but not the rest. :P Not a fish/seafood, or cabbage family fan here.

    Huzzah for Tuesday's yellow chicken cookers! :D Sounds like Anna and Gary both knocked it out of the park.

    Joel, the white dinner kinda scares me! :lol:

    And, as always, nice knife.

    Thanks! My recipe is really simple. I came up with it when I was trying to recreate some restaurant dish, though I can no longer remember which one . . . :?

    Yogurt & Turmeric Marinated Chicken
    (use with 2-3 lbs. chicken pieces of your choice)

    1 C Whole Greek Yogurt
    2 cloves garlic, crushed or grated
    Juice of 1 lemon
    2-3 tsp Kosher Salt
    1 tsp whole Coriander Seed, freshly-ground
    2 tsp whole Black Peppercorns, freshly ground
    1 tsp ground turmeric
    ¼ cold cup water

    Place chicken pieces in a ziploc bag. Mix everything together and pour it all into the ziploc bag, completely covering the chicken with it. Place it in the fridge for at least a few hours, or up to 24 (might want to put the bag in a pan in case of leaks). I try to 'flip the bird' at least once, about halfway through the marinating time. After the marinating, just cook it in your preferred manner. My favorite is indirect grilling with lump charcoal. Sometimes I wipe off the chicken pieces before cooking. Other times, I leave as much marinade as will stick on them.

    Enjoy!

    Thanks Ronnie, guess I'll try it with some corn on the cob, yellow, and some saffron rice, or maybe gold rush mashed potatoes. :mrgreen:

    I've definitely watched too much Food Network, but it seems to me that Yellow Chicken would look very nice with a drizzle of pomegranate molasses.

    So I bought some boneless pork chops at Costco today. 3 bucks off a package, which came out to $1.97 a pound. Nice looking pork chops, but they are 2 inches thick. Not wanting to stuff them, so whant, slice them to 1 inch thick? Also, I haven't prepared pork chops in 10 or more years, suggestions? Rather not run the oven today. Thanks.
