Another football Sunday, another day of feasting. Plenty of delicious dishes – none of them prepared by yours truly… Ivon’s bacon-topped turkey meatloaf Rob’s sweet potato waffles Akemi’s chickpea salad Akemi sour cream apple pie And I would be remiss in not mentioning some of the tasty plates Akemi has made over the past couple of weeks: Salt-baked sea breem. Packed in salt then baked at 450 degrees for 20 minutes. Crack the salt, peel off the skin and enjoy. Yum! Polenta cakes topped with oven-roasted cherry tomatoes, olive oil, and basil Sous-vide tuna, potato, and tomato confit with tarragon Crispy gnocchi …with brown butter and oregano Oven-roasted cipollini onions in olive oil and balsamic vinegar Risotto balls with tomato sauce Garlic-roasted bar clams Phyllo pastry pizza Spinach and cheese phyllo pockets Autumn spice cupcakes And, for the dogs, Peanut Butter Cookies! 00Share this:FacebookTwitterPinterestEmailPrintMoreRedditTumblrWhatsAppPocketLinkedInLike this:Like Loading...

How was the sous-vide tuna? Were the potatoes able to cook at the lower temperature?
The potatoes were actually cooked prior to putting them in with the tuna.
Can Akemi come cook for me? All I’ve eaten the last couple days has been Hormel chili, peanut butter and jelly, and eggs. 😛 I need to get to the store….soon!
Tell Akemi her gnocchi look as good as Campagnolo’s. 😀
🎶 …hot sausage and mustard… 🎶
Wow, wow, wow! I didn’t know you could make waffles with sweet potatoes or fry gnocchi, everything looks so good! My puny pineapple-parsley pork ribs seem kinda lame now. That pie is dazzling, and those doggy treats are adorable! I love how Fall-ish all the dishes were, lots of tasty comfort food on a chilly night.
I’m enjoying one of my old Napster CDs from the 90’s, and yep, lots of the stuff just has not held up over the years. Never thought I’d say this but if I’d rather be conked in the head with an Acme anvil than listen to Andrea Bocelli again.
Akemi’s chickpea salad!! Akemi’s chickpea salad!! I must have that recipe…pleeeeease. My dad went and bought a case of canned chick peas. Twelve cans! Help meeeeeee!!
All the food pictured here today looks amazing!
Salivating too much to type. yum.
several of those dishes sound interesting.
Too funny one my favorite dishes my wife makes is her bacon-topped turkey meatloaf!! Very few times is there leftovers!
However, I have to say one my all time favorites is her Taco Ring, but we have renamed it in our household to be TACO GATE! =)
This is serious, Joe did not talk about the games or his teams….oh-oh.
But the food sure looks like winners.
That seabream recipe sounds really interesting! I’ll have to recommend it to customers at work when we get some in again. ^__^
Mmmm, sweet potato waffles…. pure love with maple syrup.
I’ll fill in the football commentary. Did you know Nacho Libre invented Tebowing?
Everything looks amazing! I’d even munch those dog biscuits. I may have to try the salt baked fish. Sounds good and easy.
How is everyone today? Back pain anyone? I hope all are well.
Ryan “Stitch” Nixon: Recipe? Looks good!
You know what I want? I want Akemi to do one of your blog entries, Joe – but NOT as herself. Instead, I want her to post the entry as YOU…or, as she sees you. A Day in the Life of Joe, According to Akemi.
How’s that sound? 🙂
dasndanger: Perhaps Akemi could put one of those POV cams on Joe for a day or two (or three or four). Then it could be a video blog, either with Akemi doing voice overs describe the crazy wacky adventures, or just add subtitles.
I’d never considered doing sous-vide in mason jars, but of course it makes perfect sense.
For you screenwriters who are looking to break in (and who live in Canada) here is the application info for the Bell Media Diverse Screenwriters program, the deadline is October 28 so get scribbling.
I think das has a great idea! (but not such a great diet this week – Hormel Chili?????)
And all that food looks wonderful. Except maybe the tuna thing. Not so sure about that.
@ Sparrowhawk – Hormel chili really isn’t that bad, considering. It doesn’t have a lot of chemical ingredients, and I always doctor it up with a bit of fresh tomatoes and onions, a squish of lime juice, and bit of pepperjack cheese. In a pinch it makes a decent meal…for homeless people. 🙂
Okay – been sitting long enough!
How about a link to the song “food glorious food”! They ALL look so good. Reminds me that I will be eating a lot of Sea bass ( 3 flavors, w/lemon, salt and grilled (Blah Poa-with fire).
I am suffering from a major munchies attack after going through those food pics.
… and Tio came empty handed.
