I warn you before you read this post that the accompanying picture is weak at best. I am including it because it seems as if a blog post without a picture these days is like a movie that goes straight to DVD: nobody bothers. The thing about movies that go straight to DVD is that the production company KNOWS that’s going to happen, so they choose the route of not even attempting to garner interest from theater-goers. I’m going the opposite route here by attempting to draw you in with the promise of a picture of delicious food. Which I will provide. Quality not guaranteed.

In the meantime, I also made another apple pie. This one had extra EXTRA crumbly cheese topping. And was mildly photogenic:

Homemade crust. Works every time.

I am late posting this. I realize it makes me look like a huge slacker. But, as you will see below, I spent Friday afternoon through Sunday afternoon in Chicago (well, the burbs of Chicago) playing Ultimate until I was covered in mud and could barely stand up. And then I had to catch up on work AND homework. But don’t worry, that didn’t keep me from eating dinner! So here we are, slightly late but just as happy.

Sunday: St. Patty’s Day!

Today, as you likely know, is St. Patrick’s Day. Traditionally, American kids get drunk as hell and make jokes about Irish stuff we don’t know anything about.

Well, today, lucky me, I got to go to WORK! So I had to skip the traditional part, but I did get to make Irish-ish food for dinner! I went the shepherd’s pie route since I had leftover mashed potatoes, and it was an excellent choice. First you make a meat pie:

This is the base for shepherd's pie. And fullness.

And I’m late posting this. Don’t worry, though: I still ate the same things regardless of when it hits the Internet.

This was a rough week. I had a couple exams, a project, and a lot of non-school non-work volunteer duties to take care of. I’ll admit, dinners suffered slightly. But hey, we still ate!

Also, Sunday was memorable for both the quality and the quantity of eating, so at least we started off strong!

Sunday: Wings

Good thing the only stuff we ever store in our fridge is vegetables and leftovers! This took up pretty much all the extra space!

Today was not a day for regular eating. No. Today was a day that I did not have work OR class, AND a day that U of M played basketball, so we decided to have people over and make wings. In advance, so I had time to fill my fridge the night before with twenty pounds of marinating chicken in various sauces.

My dad is still the grillmaster in my mind, even though I haven’t lived with my parents for nearly a decade and I have a lot of friends who are very good at grilling. The grill was just always on in the summer when I was a kid, and the magical foods that came from it made a permanent impression on me.

So when I went to visit my parents last week, I couldn’t believe he would let ME come up with a recipe, while he would still do most of the work. I chose as my main ingredients the half-pineapple chilling in the fridge and my dad’s (SUPER EXCITING AND COLORFUL AND I WANT MY OWN) pepper garden out back. That’s right. The man has a fenced-off garden of pepper pots on risers with his own homemade sprinkler system to water it. The variety of spice and color in that pepper jungle is making my mouth water. Anyway, this recipe kind of came up with itself. The resulting grilltime was fun and relaxing at the same time. And, not surprisingly, the results were definitely worth repeating:

Did I mention he also likes to take pictures while standing on chairs for a good camera angle? This picture features grilled salmon and a glass of wine (behind the lens).

Tres Quiche

Quiche, as it’s most often served in American diners, seems to be a dish consisting primarily of eggs and cheese, with the occasional strand of vegetable crying for attention. That is a different kind of quiche from the one I have made up. Mine may not be the more traditional kind but, since I rarely use real recipes, I wouldn’t know that, so I will pretend that all quiches are stuffed to the [crust] brim with veggies. On the other hand, maybe that means it’s good for you! Furthermore, the yoghurt makes it really fluffy and nice. I highly recommend… my recipe. Surprise, surprise.

Put these things into the oven, and out comes a delicious quiche!
