So dinner in my dreams was a 2 1/2 inch thick perfectly marbled, perfectly cooked ribeye. No such thing exists in my freezer. It is Labour Day. None of the grocery stores are open in my area. So dinner was canned salmon flavor boosted with some ginger, sriracha sauce and scallions with a side of broccoli and potatoes baked then pan fried in duck fat. No it didn't measure up to a ribeye but it was adequate.

Carrot and caraway crostini, marinated olives

Basically sliced carrots and a garlic clove simmered in lightly salted water until the carrots are tender, then combined with onion sautéed in olive oil and seasoned with sea salt, black cumin seed and caraway seed, then puréed in a blender or food processor, along with a little lemon juice.


Chicken, braised with wine and tomatoes


Sautéed radishes, North African herb sauce.

North African herb sauce (from David Tanis' book, "One Good Dish"): coriander seeds, cilantro leaves, parsley leaves, serrano chile, preserved lime, scallions, mint, sea salt, extra-virgin olive oil, cumin seed. The mint and preserved lime are my own additions.
