Homemade fried chicken tenders. Very tasty.
Ginger-Chicken Soup and Spring-Rolls
This is a light, refreshing combo that takes minimal effort for great results.
The soup consists of a broth from simmering onions, fresh ginger, garlic, black peppercorns and chicken. It is garnished at serving time with fresh cilantro from the garden.
The spring-rolls contain shredded Napa-cabbage and carrots, green onions, cilantro and glass noodles. They were served with sweet chile sauce.
Have to try the shredded napa and noodles ... I usually go with rice and vermicelli ...
Pickled ginger? Bit of an acquired taste, that ...
Baguette + home made garlic-mayo + a bit of lettuce + a lot of confit de canard = Best Sammich Ever!

Everybody, don't forget to click the pic and check out some of the other meals featured in da Bucket. Looks like some good eating there!
Tonight's unhealthy snack fare: (mildly spicy) cream cheese wontons
Hint of sugar
Dipping sauce (not shown):
Rice wine vinegar
Home from work late and real hungry so keeping it simple working from what's on hand and quick. Toasted wheat rolls, bacon gravy, bacon, scrambled eggs and tomato with lots of fresh ground pepper on top. I guess it's the acid, but whatever it is, I love how tomatoes bring out the heat in ordinary pepper. When there's eggs in the fridge, there's always something good for dinner on a rainy night. Washed down with a cold Fat Tire. I'm good. Time to spin a record or so until I have to go pick up my wife from work.
Spaghetti with a tuna and tomato sauce. One of the first recipes in my cookbook (I learned it from a tv programme when I was 9 or 10), and still one of the best. Quick, easy, delicious!
Spaghetti with TUNA??
(Sounds kinda fishy to me ...) <G>
But I just know I'll have to try it ...
PS ... ever try a tuna and olive sandwich? Both green and black, with lettuce, celery and onion ...
Do try it. It tastes great, and it's more filling than a regular tomato sauce - especially if you use whole grain pasta. Sometimes, when I'm feeling very adventurous, I'll throw in a couple of spoonfuls of capers as well.
The tuna and olive sandwich is a classic with good reason. I usually make them with a home-made dijonnaise, and whichever greens I can find in the fridge.
I don't know what those 'matoes are doing on there but the picture is great!
First Strawberries of the Season
We have been waiting for a long time for these strawberry plants to produce significant fruit. We just harvested these from our garden, so I wanted to make folks drool a bit. They "were" spectacular.
A one skillet chicken dish. Leftover rotisserie chicken with orzo (toasted), onions, carrots and peas.
I originally posted this in a Superbowl food thread. This is not going to replace my favorite local pizza but they are quick and easy to make and taste mighty fine.
For breakfast today ... fingerling potatoes, farm fresh eggs over easy, and what I think is the world's finest bacon. If you're ever up in Rogers City, Michigan ... stop in at Plath's Meats and pick up a few pounds.
For dinner tonite ... stuffed peppers. Mix of burger and pork sausage, with barley and onions. More bacon on top, with salsa and caramelized onions for garnish.
Darn...forgot to take a picture. Had some leftover corned beef and made a couple killer Reuben sandwiches. My, my, they were delish.
Cod en papillote with white radish, spring cabbage, fennel, and celery (and a bit of coriander, white wine, butter, and lemon for extra nom):
Roast chicken thighs, roasted red potatoes and roasted brussel sprouts.
Duck/shitake mushroom spring rolls, spring cabbage/cucumber salad, and a chili/coriander mayo for exstra nom
