    Very nice @Kerry Beal! Enjoy 😊 We cut the jamón, it’s clearly not bellota. But my husband thinks it’s good for practicing cutting and honestly it’s not bad at all. I made again duck in plum sauce, roasted potatoes, onions requested by the girl of the house and salad not pictured.

    Yes, exactly!!! This frittata is quite thin (my husband ruined my egg pan🤬) so I’ve been using a larger blue steel pan. 100-120 egg whites and 1 egg, I love it!

    @heidih I took inspiration from Shain here , it’s a kuku, a Persian frittata but less eggs, only to bind vegetables together. I used herbs I had in the house: dill, parsley, watercress, some scallions, a little bit of rucola and spinach salad, very little coriander because I didn’t have. I added some broken walnuts and cranberries because I didn’t have zereshk (btw love them!). I think this is not everybody taste, I like it! Don’t think the rest of my family will, so I am keeping it for me 😁. Also, it’s very time consuming to clean all the herbs and came only with 8 muffin with my quantity.

    @BonVivant I can only imagine how that tastes 😋 I discovered I really like to eat my frittata as bread (it’s really one egg and all egg white). I made mini kuku sabzi @shain and except yogurt, everything are leftovers from yesterday.

    Dinner 2019

    Yesterday was my husband birthday and we were having maybe 40 guests. I was watching the weather closely because it’s rain season now and I was happy to see that rain was stopping. Well, until I was starting setting the food 🙄. It was pouring like crazy and we were thinking of canceling but eventually cleared. These only some of the pictures, I was too busy for it. I made mini burger (buns with a brioche dough) and inside a base of sobrasada and actually a chicken croquette instead of slider and a candied piquillo pepper, watercress. Skewers of cherry mozzarella and cherry tomatoes confit and a crouton; of roasted zucchini and shrimps; also of mint, olives, marinated feta and melon. A cauliflower salad from Ottolenghi. Eggplant caviar. I made chinese pork roast but instead of the steam buns that I couldn’t reheat I used the italian tigelle, with cucumber marinated in ginger juice and some spicy sprouts, eggplant kuku, and also piadines that people thought were quesadillas, filling queso tetilla, roasted vegetables, rucola and spinach, etc. We had the slicer going with all the Spanish charcuterie, we ended up not opening the Jamón, too much work. Cheese. I made a huge bowl of crackers and grissini with rosemary and raisins. On the grill we had picanha and flap meat not pictured, I was busy slicing. For dessert I made bignè, puffs with pastry cream. A crostata with apricot jam, than I made a galette with frangipane filling using brioche as dough instead of puff pastry.

    Yes! It was a very good deal. They had a discount in the store (it’s called Delicias de España, here I found a link, in the store they had a promotion going and I payed $50 less than that) and other 2 people before me walked away with one. I didn’t plan buying one, but time to get to the car and I walk back to get a leg myself. Not that expensive, it’s not bellota but de cebo.

    Dinner 2019

    Too busy organizing my husband birthday party this Wednesday. I am trying to make some stuff ahead of time. Making piadine and freezing them (I want to put them on the grill. One bottom, filling, top with another piadina, on the grill and cut in wedges). I also made tigelle, that I want to serve with Chinese roast. In the meantime I am too tired to cook, so I stole a tigella, an a piadina that got burned, some of the tacos de jamon that I bought today at the Spanish store. Maybe a yogurt for dessert 😁

    Sound great. Tarragon is hard around here...I’ll try a mini version to see how it goes. I have a pool party for Wednesday and things like this are ideal. I could also try a “Greek” version with zucchini, mint and dill, plus feta. Thanks for the inspiration.

    I sold it when we moved. But honestly I had a problem with my CSO, it broke and they replace it but it never worked as at the beginning. But I am so tempted now to buy it again although I have NO space for it. @BonVivant wonderful. I always joke with my husband to go to pilgrimage to Jabugo. But soon or later...

    @shainloooove it! Which herbs did you put in the Kuku? Ah, ah, I also have in the repertoire an Ottolenghi eggplant kuku, which I renamed bastardized Italian kuku 🤣 @BonVivant I don’t feel pity for you no finding a restaurant open 😙 😋
