One of my favourite--if not my absolute favourite--things in the world to eat, cioppino. Fresh cod, squid, mussels, clams, and salmon (my addition) in a tomato and white-wine broth. Lots of garlic, and I made it extra-spicy with chili flakes and cayenne. Fucking hell, I could eat this for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

And I have!

Kimchi fried rice has been my go-to “lazy” dinner:

- 1 serving of rice (I cook 2 cups at a time and split into 3 servings)
- 1/3-1/2 cup kimchi, chopped
- 1 egg
- 1 green onion
- 1.5 tbsp Gochujang (Korean pepper paste) thinned with water

Literally fry the rice, add the egg, and add in the kimchi/sauce. Quick and tasty meal.

An Aldi frozen salisbury steak family pack. Did it on the range with a lid, added a chopped onion and bell pepper, also a can of mushrooms. Added some various seasoning too.
Not bad
edit- forgot to mention that after I cooked it down a shitton I threw in some half and half too

-Shakshouka. It's pretty easy and cheap. It's a middle eastern spiced tomato and onion dish with eggs on top.
-keto cheese chips. Hear me out. They're genius. You just put chunks of cheese on parchment paper on a baking sheet and you bake it until they spread out and start getting crispy. Then you have chips for guacamole, salsa or whatever. I made some taco meat to go with them at one point, and it was incredible with homemade guac and chopped tomatoes. You can sprinkle a little cumin on them before baking for more flavor.
-We bought some Ethiopian food as a treat and I had extra injera, so I made some lentils with berbere spices. Delicious.

Shephard's Pie.

I don't eat lamb (or veal) so it was just made with hamburger. I add corn to the peas and carrots, partly cuz I always like to beef up the veggies in any meal and it makes it go a little farther.

The massive recipe calls for 2 1/2 lbs of meat, so I always make a few extra for family, hubby's boss, friends or freeze it.

The mashed potato topping has butter, milk, parmesan, garlic powder, salt & pepper as well as an egg yolk and topped with cheddar cheese.

I know it is not an exact replica of my forefather's, but kids and adults alike always get happy when I make it. I've considered substituting turkey but have not quite had the heart for it, plus a few people would declare Mutiny on me.

I serve it with a big salad.

eta: did my old brain already post this? ugh, oh well.

god has left the building a long time ago.
I saw Babish's recipe for Okonomiyaki and had to try it because I'm still on a cabbage-spree.
I didn't have Katsuobushi so we just ate it without them.
Most delicious thing I've made/eaten in a while.

The picture is stolen - I forgot to take one before I wolfed it down.
