    Dinner 2019

    Today it was a Costco day, so we got some prime center cut ribeyes but I already defrosted some jumbo key west pink shrimps, so we had both. We have a store here, called Wild Fork Foods, just frozen. Paradise for proteins, we get shrimps there.

    Dinner 2019

    Pizza for the kids: no cheese for the boy, cheese for the girl. Picanha for us, with salad and some krauts (comparing Trader Joe’s and Cleveland Krauts). How much we miss the kimchi from our Korean veg shop in Brooklyn 😩

    Yes, I am renting! As you can see I didn’t spend my morning cleaning my backsplash mirror. The only advantage I can see it’s that I have an ocean view as I cook 🤣🤣🤣 obviously when it’s not covered in grease that I cannot see anything 😁😒

    Yes! I deeply hate it! I call this a “kitchen for those how don’t cook” 🤬 I was actually going to ask help for keeping it clean. I use detergent soap first and then windex but It’s impossible to keep it clean. I also cracked it!!! I was just warming up my cast iron grill. I thought the mirror would be heat resistant.

    I wish I had Bonvivant crevette gris on my plate and some bulots too if possible 😁 but I had do with some key west pink shrimp, salad and a frittata.

    Still diet food but not too bad, at least adios low fat. I never ate so much chicken in my life, I much prefer duck. But a calabrese spicy sauce makes everything better 😁. Chinese eggplants, shishito peppers and broccoli on the side.

    @Kim Shook it’s good culture. If there is a little liquid I just drain it from the container before scooping the cottage cheese out.

    Weird zucchini

    Ahhh, ahh, googootz, love it. I remember when I used to work in NY a colleague of mine said to me, in English, that he won a competition for his « googootz », I had to hold myself for not laughing. I didn’t want to be mean, it was just unexpected. It’s like speaking in English and suddenly saying something in Sicilian dialect. That is known in Italian as zucchina siciliana, zucchina lunga (long) or italianized cucuzza. In all South of Italy « cucuzza » in dialect means zucchini and in colloquial terms in Italian it also means « head ». The long zucchini is generally peeled and cooked into a soup. The most famous, you can google it, is pasta con i tenerumi. The tenerumi are the zucchini shoots. The zucchina trombetta, trompette for the french, is totally different. The skin is softer, no need to peel .

    Lunch 2019

    I made snacks for my daughter playdate (and her mom) in the afternoon, that became my breakfast and my lunch. I guess today I can call it a cheat day. Tigelle with coppa serrana, jamon, chorizo and sobrasada. Olives and cornichons. Focaccia. I also made bignè with pastry cream and bignè with chocolate cream and a fruit tart, no picture for that.
