    Salad 2016 –

    Panzanella, since I finally got garden grown tomatoes from co-worker. Pretty much followed the recipe from Serious Eats, but added some grilled fennel and tiny mozz balls. Also not totally authentic due to the multigrain bread, but that was what I had.
  2. Went to the office today, got a bag of tomatoes from co-worker (large, grape, and tiny cherry types), he also gave me these cookies which his wife has been enjoying with tea.

    Dinner 2020

    First time dining at a restaurant since March...Blue Point Grill in Princeton has a good amount of outdoor seating, we sat on the roof which was really nice and shady, got a little breeze, plus watching the scenery below. Split a bowl of NE clam chowder (waitress put in to two bowls for us on her own), crab and guacamole dip, and my entree was sauteed bronzino filet (crispy skin) with miso butter. Hubs had pistachio crusted trout.
  4. Went to the Shop Rite supermarket across the street from my office (haven't been there probably since Feb/March)...my observation is that this store wasn't quite as well stocked as the one near my house. The chain has different owners for different locations, so they must manage stock differently. I was just buying some snacks and stuff for lunch, so I didn't hit all the aisles. Did get a loaf of nice artisan olive bread (day old) for $4. so that will be good for the freezer (less the slices I cut off for lunch). I'm waiting for my opportunity to make panzanella, only need tomatoes...
  5. My coworker who is a skilled bow hunter always takes some venison to a local food bank. He also had a private farm who asked him to take care of some critters, and he got to harvest tons of asian pears they didn’t want. You know they sell them at the supermarket for like $1-2 each...

    Breakfast 2020!

    Because it looks far more attractive while still in the tin...sardines on rice cakes.
  7. @JoNorvelleWalker, perhaps time to speak to the Produce Manager and find out what the issue is, since Shop Rites all over NJ seem to have them. When I was at Whole Foods yesterday, I noticed there were still empty spaces on dry goods shelves. Some of it could be that they buy from some of the smaller companies (ie, not Nabisco) who may be behind on shipments due to staffing issues. The produce, dairy, and meat were fully stocked.

    Lunch 2020

    Back when I still ate red meat (maybe 30 years ago?) pastrami was my deli meat of choice. That looks terrific. And I use that mustard pretty regularly, also.

    Food after Dental Work

    Can you eat something like Indian dal, mushy lentils? Palak paneer?

    Salad 2016 –

    I have waited all summer to make this, fresh corn/tomato/avocado salad. Finally found some decent corn today at Whole Foods, 50 cents each.

    Dinner 2020

    Baked Argentinian Red Shrimp with garlic butter and panko+parmesan crumbs on top. They were deveined but the shell was split open and butterflied, so it really reinforced the “lobster” leaning flavor. Sauteed a bag of some kind of shredded veg mix, bloomed a small amount of curry powder in oil first (didn’t want it to be a strong curry flavor, just wanted the warmth) then added a little vinegar I am infusing with orange peel and a drizzle of honey. Multigrain pilaf to absorb garlic/shrimp juice.

    Cantaloupe Overload

    Cantaloupe "gazpacho" (plenty of recipes online)...I've made watermelon gazpacho, and it was tasty. I'm supposing if you make a batch to see if you like it, you can then make more and jar it for later consumption...

    Lunch 2020

    @blue_dolphin, that recipe looks very appealing. What do you think would work as an alternate green in the pesto, since I am not sure I have seen collards in my local market?
