PB, I'd suggest scallions, very finely chopped and/or chives or garlic chives. JMHO!

Made a big pot of caldo verde on this cool Florida evening. Boy do I love this stuff. I'd eat this over a steak any day

It's been pretty chilly for us folks in the Florida panhandle so comfort food is in order. Lentils and lamb with sun dried tomatoes, parsley and green onion. The french lentils were cooked in turkey broth and seasoned pretty aggressively with a harissa blend from World Spice with additional coriander, cumin and fenugreek.

Roast chicken. The rub was a mixture of salt, pepper, half-sharp paprika, toasted ground Sichuan peppercorns and star anise. Served with bread from Poilâne (an early Xmas present).

Flounder. I bought a whole guy and discovered there was roe. Soaked the filets briefly in warm milk, dipped in flour. cooked in butter. Made a brown butter and caper sauce. Simple green beans boiled, then salted, then lemon'd.

The marinated pork chops were too thin to stuff so I put the stuffing on the bottom of the chops. Stuffing was pineapple, greens, green onions, garlic, salt and pepper and sesame oil. Also had stuffed mushrooms, asparagus with buttered bread crumbs from leftover brioche bread and potatoes.

Cooked unilaterally. Yes, from Craft. This one in particular caught my eye. Beautiful marbling. The flavor of fat is almost like foie gras.

Bought 2 lbs of mussels yesterday and was planning on making a simple mussel pasta with jalapenos and white wine. However, all the mussels were open.. So, that wasn't very good. I read the fish tags and they had been pulled out on the 15th of this month. I don't have an explanation but, whatever.

So, I made a pasta sauce with garlic and oil, anchovies, tomato paste, red chile and a little white wine. Topped with cheese and homemade toasted bread crumbs.

It was actually fantastic.

Basquecook, those cracklings look so good.

My refrigerator looked like the desert tonight. I managed to make chicken noodles soup, some sauté mixed salads (outer leaves), shredded carrots and chicken salad with sesame seeds and a little plate of salame, jamon and bocconcini di mozzarella
