The day started out very nice. I BBQed a slab of spare ribs and trimmings.  Here is the smoker going and next to it is my brand new grill.  Next picture is after two hours, just before wrapping the ribs and the last picture is after another two hours.  As soon as I took them off, the sky got dark and the clouds opened up.  I wanted to do a quick run to the store to get a few things to finish dinner but the storm sirens went off and the car radio said there were tornadoes sighted.  I was at the store but they closed before I could get in so I'll have to finish dinner with left overs I guess.  The ribs are nicely done and very juicy, btw.

Today I found beautiful black trumpets high along a steep mountainside.

I made a riff on the famous Philadelphia pork and broccoli rabe sandwich with provolone and cherry peppers.  I will admit that I used leftover pork blade chops instead of slow roasted pork shoulder.

I grew up in Philadelphia.  This is the first I have ever heard of this dish.  But then when I was growing up in Philadelphia I had never heard of broccoli rabe.

Dinner was Ottolenghi eggplant with pomegranates, a baguette, half of a small chicken rubbed with grapeseed oil and baked quickly at high heat (eg, after the baguette).   And some cheese.  I was not at all sure I could finish half of even a tiny chicken by myself, but isn't MR wonderful?

BonVivant,   I would have been happier with your lamb dinner.

 

Couple of dinners from earlier in the week.

 

I finally found a cut of lamb that I'm not that keen on. Lamb breast/riblets.    I still have a few cuts of lamb from a whole one in the freezer.

I also lived in Philadelphia for a time and have no memory of this sandwich from then.  My Philadelphia memories are of hoagies, cheesesteaks, giant pickles, and soft pretzels.  Of course I was a child then and probably would not have even considered eating broccoli rabe.  But, this sandwich is a Philadelphia thing. Google brings up many recipes and shops where you can get it.

That looks like perfect summer fare. My basil is also reaching the point where I can harvest it - pesto in the next few days! As for the lamb - I've been hankering for lamb, but I can't buy any more meat until I've worked down through the freezer. No lamb in there. :-(

The only thing that seems to be missing from your meals is your lovely bread.

I'd be happy with yours. Everything looks perfect here. Love the overhead shot.

 

Lamb ribs are popular with the Turks, they also braise them. I shall do that when it gets cold.

Liam that Philadelphia broccoli sandwich looks so great.

Ann very impressive basil. Mines been anemic.

I did get to incorporate some home grown parsley and mint in dinner tonight though.

I made these yogurt lamb leg kebabs with tatziki, tabbouleh with the fresh herbs, and oven roasted mixed potatoes.

Cooked the lamb on the rotisserie.

It is a legit South Philly sandwich that hasn't spread as far as the cheesesteak. I'm not sure you can find one north of the Reading Terminal Market

 

Sometimes with sharp provolone. A note of rosemary and a hint of garlic in the roast pork and jus. Nice.

A few dinners. 

 

My husband was in charge of this one. Strip loin medallions, I think? He did them on the BBQ to a medium/rare after cooking the potatoes (wrapped in foil with a bit of oil, S & P). He didn't think it needed anything else, but I insisted on the tomato. You can tell he likes new potatoes.  :smile:

 

It was really quite tasty. The cat and I sat and watched him and drank wine. (Well, I drank wine.) All in all, a very good meal.

 

(The cat got a taste or two.)

Marcella Hazan tomato sauce (with butter and onion), topped with a  bit of parm-reg and a bit of basil. I made extra sauce and froze it. Not that it takes much effort to make it, but it does take a bit of time. 

 

IMGP4835.JPG

 

Tomahawk pork chops - after an apple cider marinade, cooked sous-vide to med-rare, then seared quickly on the BBQ. With fresh local snap beans (yay, I love beans!) and some homemade pickled beets and red onions.

Corn and crab cakes with lime cream and iceberg-cilantro slaw.  Recipe was from the current issue of Fine Cooking magazine.  I enjoyed this and it was fast to put together on a work night

Haven't posted for a while.

 

Needed to use up some lemons so thought I'd make hummus.

 

This led a Middle Eastern inspired dish -- hummus with spiced marinated lamb and pine nuts.
