Shrimp Cakes, Avocado Salad, Dill-Yogurt Sauce

While
 my stomach tells me that the larger the shrimp, the more I love the dish, my wallet sometimes pulls back the reins and tells me to take it easy 😦
So last week when I went to the store to buy shrimp for this dish, these small salad shrimp for $7.75 a pound seemed more suitable than the large ones for $28.00 a pound. (My wallet insisted). I had planned to chop the shrimp, then add peppers, seasoning and an egg white and prepare shrimp cakes in the traditional way. However, these here babies with the tiny cooked shrimp turned out to be just as good, perhaps even better. The texture is of course very different from patties made from chopped raw shrimp, but as I said, not inferior, and maybe even better.
Hurray for the  cheaper  solution. (Ooops, of course I mean the more economical solution ) 😦
And there you have it – more expensive is not always better!  (However, most of the time, it really is) 🙂

German-Italian Friendship (Deutsch-Italienische Freundschaft)

>
>
I have  prepared this dish in different versions for 45 years. Like so many other unsung culinary heroes, the dish is so simple and logical when you either have leftover pasta and sausages, or cooking it from scratch just because it’s tasty, quick and  cheap – ooops, sorry, we don’t say cheap here – I meant economical 🙂
Use any type of pasta, cheese and sausages you have at hand, just stick to the basics (or not) 🙂
However, if you want to use the name I gave the dish, use a mix of German/Italian ingredients; other than that, let your imagination take a walk on the wild side………….

Chicken Fried Steak

>
>
The  great thing about CFS is that one can utilize an economical (cheap, in plain English)  cut of beef, such as top round or cube steak and still get excellent results. However, I happened to have some leftover raw strip loin left from yesterday’s dinner, which I sliced thin, then pounded it even thinner for this CFS.
Usually the traditional side dish would be mashed potatoes, but I am trying to cut down on my starch intake, so I felt the flour from the breading and the “Gravy” was enough of that for the day.
(The rendered fat from the chorizo and the chicken fat made this southern style gravy even tastier than it’s usual version made with bacon fat)
American comfort food at it’s finest ! (Just don’t tell your cardiologist) 🙂
