Katsudon: Easy Japanese

Here's the recipe but it's basically (for 2)
1. Start rice.
2. Debone pork chops and cut fat.
3. Start oil in small pot - wait for it to get to approximately 340 degrees F.
4. Meanwhile, flour, egg and panko pork chops.
  5.  Put thinly sliced onion and 1/2 cup dashi broth in pan until it boils. Add some soy sauce and mirin (I didn't use sake because I didn't want to have to buy it).
6. Crack 4 eggs and whisk so that you get a loose scramble. 
7. Rice, then add pork, then add egg scrample and top with green onions.

Bacon & Guac Grilled Cheese

French Onion Soup Grilled Cheese

Capellino's Cupcakes!

Pork Loin Lasagna and Healthy Creamed Spinach

Beet and fennel salad

How did we ever make this - it has beets and it came after the cleanse!

Salmon, butternut squash and dill mac&cheese

Part of the mac and cheese month! Mmm why don't we make this more often?

Hot Chocolate!

This post would make a lot more sense in the fall or winter instead of the spring, especially since both this winter and this spring have been unseasonably warm. But it doesn't matter: on a cold warm, snowy rainy drizzly day, a nice mug of hot cocoa can be just what the doctor ordered.

We had some extra dulce de leche from when we made empanadas. And when life gives you dulce de leche, you make lemonade hot chocolate!

This recipe was pretty rich - it was almost like a drinking chocolate - so you might consider adding more milk.  Or just some churros...


This is the recipe I used and the result. I used whatever spices I had. Lay loose on the cardamom.
