Dinner 2015 (part 4)

Recommended Posts

the soup was warm ?

 

its given me an idea of a cold version

 

things that needed cooking to get tender  i.e. green beans and dried beans, pasta etc are cooked / chilled.

 

the stuff that's good raw  : squash etc are added to the cold stock w the chilled cooked stuff :

 

summer time veg. gazpacho.

 

thanks for the idea !

It was served as a warm soup, but I like your idea too!    :smile:

I LOVE your soup FauxPas.  I have a whole bag of frozen parm. rinds that I need to use.  Thanks for a great idea to use summer veggies!  What kind of dried beans did you use?  What shape of pasta, macaroni?  I can't see for sure from the pic.

Shelby, I just used macaroni because I had some that had been languishing in the cupboard though I did think of getting something more interesting! And the beans were some frozen pinto beans that I had initially cooked a month or two ago. I think a white bean would have looked nicer, though.  

 

Simply Recipes got me started on it, with this suggestion

It's autumn already so I'm having a meal to match the weather. The opened ones were steamed and the other half of the dumplings was boiled. Chilean snow crab meat and pork mince used in the filling.

FauxPas, great idea for a soup. Did you make a separate stock with vegetables that you discarded, or was it a one-step process?

 

BonVivant, you truly live up to your moniker. Also, beautiful dumpling technique.

Fedelini tossed in the pan w/ a "sauce" of EV olive oil, garlic & shallots, Dragon Tongue beans, Blue Oyster mushrooms, Cremini mushrooms, Cherub tomatoes, an "ugly" tomato, and broccoli florets at the end before the pasta went in.  Seasoning adjusted.  Fried eggs.

EV olive oil, garlic, Mexican chorizo, Shishito peppers, Cherub tomatoes, Japanese Trifele tomatoes, the leftovers from the meal above, parsley.  Seasoning adjusted.

Pastelitos de Carne Cubano (beef & pork; chicken) from Taste of Havana.

Note to those who have not had Cuban pastelitos -- they have a distinct sweet note (from the syrup brushed on them before they are finished off in the oven) to go with the savory filling.

A Cuban neighbor often made and shared them with me. She favored them for breakfast with a strong coffee.

Never did find the can but I am still looking.

 

Glad to have run across this exchange. I have cornbread in the freezer, leftover roast chicken in the fridge, chicken and dressing on the menu this week. Must Get Cranberry Sauce. Note that I had no question at all about why cranberry sauce was in the fridge. That's where mine lives  as well.

I had a hankering for calzones.  I spent most of the day in the kitchen on various projects so I figured calzones would fit right in.  My husband doesn't care for ricotta cheese so I used cottage cheese, egg and parm. with thick slices of fresh mozz.  I sautéed some onions and mushrooms along with ground pork and spinach.  The insides were excellent...the outside, not so much.  I used my pizza crust recipe.  It's great for pizza, not for calzones.  I must do a bit of research before I try again.

 

On the up side, I brought out some of the homemade pesto for topping and my husband liked it.  Pesto is another thing that I thought he didn't like. :wacko:  Apparently I'm dredging up husbands from a past life or something.  :laugh:

BLT's on homemade bread, fried okra and green tomato (it accidentally fell off of the vine....I can't fathom picking a green tomato on purpose this time of year ;) ) and silver queen.  Man, summer is good.

We've had some non-summery meals, because we had some cooler weather and had some things to use up. Red wine-braised short ribs last night, for example. These looked prettier after adding a bit of parsley and some sliced tomatoes, also had some gravy on the side. Fresh corn was excellent, mashed some new potatoes.

Weather is warming up again, though.
