Chinese fondue. I never tire of it.

The bouillon recipe has been used in our family for over 25 years. The sauces for the beef and chicken are so easy to make, so delicious, and 100x better than anything store bought.

Rather than use thinly sliced beef like the tradition wants, I use filet mignon sliced in cubes, as if you ate a Bourgignon fondue. The meat is so much more tender and it retains the taste of the bouillon better. Accompany with some shrimps, garlic bread, rice or potatoes, a Cesar salad and a good red wine... easy to make and is always delicious.

Toblerone chocolate fondue for desert was planned to stay in the fondue theme, alas we were so full we never got to it. Nothing beats bananas and strawberries dipped in melted hot Toblerone enhanced by a dash of cream. *drool* There's always tomorrow I'm gonna have to stay an extra hour at the gym tomorrow to make up for this dinner.

Serve on top of waffles!
Dairy-Free Ice Cream

Freeze over night:
1 banana (peeled, chopped in thirds)
6-8 cubes (from a regular ice tray) of almond milk (or any "milk" product that you like)
1 cup of your favorite frozen fruit (strawberries, blueberries, peaches, etc)

Place everything in a Vitamix (or similar very good blender), blend and keep pushing everything down, shouldn't take more than a 60-90 seconds (the Vitamix "tamper" is ideal for this). Serve!

(It's probably more like a sorbet but the beauty of this is that it's so quick to prepare. We now have a stash of frozen bananas, frozen soy milk cubes, and about four other kinds of fruits in our freezer at all times. Yum!)

Fired up the smoker today and did 2 racks of St. Louis style ribs. One with my home made KC Style rub and one with store bought Famous Dave's rub. Had Yukon gold potatoes baked with olive oil, salt and rosemary and fresh green beans with bacon.
Also made an apple pie. Put too many apples in and lifted the top crust but it settled back down once it cooled.

I've finally learned how to make a proper bechamel sauce.

Banana bread/muffins - this is a recipe from a pastry chef I know. It is a banana 'pound cake' but not with a pound of butter, flour, eggs, and sugar.

It only has 4 tbs of canola oil and uses yogurt (fat free) but I use a full fat plain yogurt. No nuts so my youngest can eat it and the family absolutely loves it - even the wife who does not like bananas.

Very moist - I use bananas that are VERY ripe, then frozen and then I whip them up partially frozen in a blender. What I can't get out of the blender I use to make a smoothie for the kids.

My oldest asked me to make more after doing these..

'St. Louis' style pizza - this crust cut into squares. No yeast in the crust - only baking powder. Tried to see if it would be close to Dayton's Marion's pizza.

Unfortunately I had to use pizza sauce but not bad - I thought the crust would brown more but it might be that the recipe does not like to be cut in half.

Not quite Marion's but fairly close.

Thanks - it was pretty tasty though the wife said it was sweet. Probably from the onions - I might have to see about cutting them down a bit.

I had 1/2 of the largest one on the plate, cooked on the bar-q, perfectly rare, as I like it. The rest of the dinner was fresh asparagus and mashed potatoes. I am still drooling when I look at that steak...all of them, really.

Mexican chicken stuffed shells. I think this was a Pintrest recipe that my wife wanted to try. Not bad - I would make some rather large changes as we have a LOT of filling left. The filling also has a lot of cream cheese - I would half it at least.

I poached the chicken myself and have chicken broth left over.

For us - I can probably half the recipe and then reduce it further - this made 38 shells and can see 5 shells per person depending on sides.

Looks tasty!

Here's the recipe if anyone wants it.
Serves 12-15
Cook Time 30 minutes
Prep Time 30 minutes

Ingredients

4 cups chicken breast, cooked and chopped
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
6 green onions, diced
1/2 each of red, green, yellow, & orange bell peppers (or 2 whole bell peppers of your choice), diced
3 (8 oz.) blocks cream cheese, softened (not melted)
2 cans diced tomatoes with chiles (don’t drain) (Rotel or store brand, either works)
1/4 - 1/2 cup chicken stock
1 tsp cumin
1 1/2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
1 cup of picante sauce
38 large pasta shells, cooked al dente

Instructions

Cook pasta shells in well salted, boiling water until al dente (still have a little bite to them) If you cook them too long, they will be difficult to stuff, plus they will have additional cooking time, once they are stuffed. Drain the pasta and set aside while you make the filling.
Cook, drain and dice enough chicken breast to make 4 cups. I always have homemade chicken stock and pre-cooked diced chicken bagged in my freezer. You could use canned chicken broth if you prefer.
To make the filling, mix diced chicken, drained black beans, green onions, diced peppers, and cumin in a large mixing bowl. Thoroughly incorporate all the ingredients.
In a separate bowl, mix the cream cheese, chicken stock and undrained tomatoes with chiles. When thoroughly combined, pour it over the chicken mixture and mix well. (If you have trouble incorporating the cream cheese and tomatoes, you can heat it slightly in the microwave.)
Spread 3/4 c. picante sauce in the bottom of a large baking pan. (I used 13x18x2, but I’m guessing that two 9×13s would also work.) Reserve the final 1/4 cup, for later.
Using a spoon, or your fingers, fill each of your cooked and cooled pasta shells, setting them into the picante covered pan. Continue until all shells are filled and arranged in the pan.
When the pan is full, drizzle the shells with the remaining 1/4 cup of picante and then sprinkle with the shredded cheddar cheese.
Cover the baking pan tightly with foil and bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes or until hot and bubbly.

I would cut back to about 2.5 cups of meat - 3 at most. I would add another can of beans, delete one philly package (maybe only do 1.5 packages) and - to 1.5 cans of tomatoes with chilies.

If you want ti spicier then add jalapenos and a spicier picante.

Visited my parents in Kansas last weekend. They sent us home with some crappie fillets.
Made them tonight along with olive oil and rosemary baked finger potatoes and white hominy.
Used Zatarain's fish fry to coat the fish in and deep fried them.
I'm pretty picky on what fish I eat (it can't taste fishy) and crappie is one of my favorites.

Made it tonight. Needed more spice for my liking. I did help it along by putting some sriracha on it after I plated it.
And I only used 2 blocks of cream cheese and had lots left over so I froze it.
