night baking! or rather I baked a pie crust a couple nights ago* and tried to make some berry, chiffon pie filling to put in it.

Thepictures looked really nice. I did some things wrong, the meringue was the consistency of latte foam, but it set up okay. Using too much gelatin helped with that, probably. It probably would have gone a lot faster if I had used the blender and a hand mixer instead of trying to mash fruit through a sieve, and using an egg beater.

I like egg beaters. I'm not sure if I like chiffon pie.



*I made chicken pot pie for a dinner last week, and wanted to test the crust I was making to see if i had it right**
**I usually use all crisco, but this time I didn't have enough crisco and used 1/2 a cup butter, forgot that would make the dough softer in my 80 degree kitchen and didn't add enough water

Saag paneer and spiced shrimp over rice pilaf.

Do you make your own paneer? I've done that once, it turned out decent.

I wanted to make fajitas last night but had to work and just ordered pizza; so this morning I improvised breakfast buritos with the ingredients in the fridge. I fried some minced beef with cumin, oreganum, coriander and a hit of paprika, then scrambled some eggs into it. Made some salsa with red onion, cherry tomatoes and pickled jalapenos (no coriander to hand).

Assembled by spreading the tortillas with some garlic sauce (no sour cream either) and filling them with grated cheese, the mince-eggs mix and salsa.

I am sure it's in no way authentic (most of what I know about Mexican food is via American TV) but it was pretty tasty!

*hint. I think a hit of paprika would have been too much paprika.

Just call it Tex Mex.

Friday I made a tarte tatin for my family before we said goodbye and flew back home. It was delicious, but it was a bit sad to leave.

Yup, looks like Tex Mex to me. Kinda similar to a wonderful breakfast made with leftovers that is authentic: Machaca.

Saute onion slices, Bell Pepper, garlic (optional hot pepper slivers here)
Add slow-cooked, shredded beef (optional tomatoes here)
Scramble eggs in same pan
Place on plate, sprinkle cheese on top
Serve with a roast-y red salsa (salsa borracha works great here) and warm flour tortillas.

Yesterday I made: Nothing. Actually, I've been lazy. My better half is out of town until after thanksgiving, and it's just much less fun to cook for yourself. I've been living off leftovers and simple meals (roast veggies and animal protein, with salad.
