Wife Jan loves carrot salad and it is her birthday dinner. This is my third attempt at making a carrot salad for a Uyghur meal—big plate chicken this time. Today, I am trying for a black vinegar vinaigrette.

I was making a very meat heavy meal with Coca-cola pork and I wanted to work in more vegetables. I added shredded cabbage to my potato salad, but I wanted one more dish. While I am not fond of cooked carrots, my family loves them. Glazing the carrots with the pork’s cola sauce seemed a reasonable next step.
I am making a French(-ish) roasted chicken for Sunday’s dinner. My original thought was to make a carrot soup, but daughter Miriam requested a carrot salad instead. Looking at French carrot salads on-line, I found that I did not have fresh parsley and Miriam cannot eat onions at the moment. I had dried chervil—A.K.A. French parsley—and I decided to substitute currents for the onions.
Wife Jan is very fond of carrot salad. I am making barbecued chicken and Jan has requested a carrot salad to go with it. While the seasoning of the bird is “mostly” French cuisine, I decided to use a more Japanese dressing on the carrot salad. That’s called California Fusion.
I had decided to make a Japanese feast this Sunday. Miriam had requested that it be a vegetable forward and a low sugar meal. Japanese dishes seem to have a lot of added sugar, but I could work with that. I found a site with a list of nine Japanese vegetables dishes to go with my main dish of chicken yakitori.
Once again, Eilene is having friends over. I decided I would make chicken teriyaki and rice. I wanted to make a side dish, but it was too late to make pickles. I have been making blended soups lately, so I thought I would make a carrot soup with an Asian twist.
Chris requested New England Boiled Dinner for his birthday. According to Wikipedia: This is a “traditional New England meal, consisting of corned beef, or a smoked “picnic ham” shoulder, with cabbage and added vegetable items, often including potato, rutabaga, parsnip, carrot, white turnip and onion.” This is one of the original American “one pot meals.”
