So it's time for cold (vegetarian) borscht, with boiled baby potatoes, sour cream, and dill. Served with a big salad.

Just me tonight and tomorrow morning I am having a tooth extracted, so they say no solidish food for a couple of days.  So I made a batch of split pea soup for the next couple of days, but tonight's dinner was a ribeye, cooked SV then torch seared, served with corn, salad and the last of the red box wine.  Fresh cherries for dessert.

Pretty deadly crust, that

Smoked salmon, olive oil, fancy French seaweed salt on an open panino. Same as lunch, just because it was good.

In my ongoing quest for the perfectly balanced thali, this one will take some beating.

Kangaroo vindaloo, potatoes with spinach, beans & lentils, lemon rice, roti, salad, cucumber & dill raita, tomato chutney, mango chutney.

I know, I know.  My pork chop looks anemic.  I SV'd it and I didn't feel like searing it.  It was very tender so I don't care what it looked like lol.

@ElainaA – I have a half a container of ricotta in my fridge right now.  No idea what I will do with it.  Probably nothing!

 

@Thanks for the Crepes – I always cook steaks in an iron skillet.  I love the crust I get.  Glad you liked the experiment!

 

The other day I found what was supposed to be a local tomato and had to have one of these:

It was ok.  Really too early for good local tomatoes, I guess.  Sigh.

 

Mr. Kim’s Father’s Day gift was an Edwards petite country ham:

Sliced:

It is fabulous.  This little guy is going to last us awhile.  I could make an entire meal of it with nothing more than a sharp knife.  Called for breakfast for dinner:

Two biscuits – one with the addition of a friend’s fig preserves, tots, scrambled eggs and another go at that tomato from the night before:

DSCN7168.JPG.e3aa514cdc1ef3eafa8b45fe8a80924f.JPG

Helped by a big clop of Duke’s, but still not great.

 

Tonight was salad, chicken Kiev (frozen – a guilty pleasure) and the bits and pieces from the fried rice that I made the other night – more like snow pea and bean sprout stir-fry with rice:

Glorious looking food, Kim, especially that lovely ham. Gorgeous!

 

There were local tomatoes that looked really good on the display marked "Local Goodness" in the Food Lion a couple of days ago. I picked up a zucchini, an ear of corn, and some peaches, which have been really good here this year. I bypassed the large local tomatoes in favor of the 1 pound clamshell of Campari tomatoes over on the display with avocados, other tomatoes,garlic and stuff. Those Campari were $2.49 and they taste like summer garden grown tomatoes. Sweet and juicy. I know you have access to Food Lion, so maybe your local store offers them too. I love tomatoes, but especially in a tomato sandwich, less than stellar ones can be very disappointing. Campari's are about golf ball size. This makes them great to control leftover partial tomatoes. They last over a week on my counter, just getting better with time. This batch was branded Sunset, but all the Camparis, regardless of brand, have been wonderful.

 

I paid a lot more per pound last month for a supposedly heirloom tomato that looked like one, complete with pleated shoulders and brownish tint. It was juicy, but brought no flavor at all to the party. I'm sticking with Camparis until I walk down to my seafood outlet. Their summer tomatoes taste like they are grown in the family that owns the shop's backyard. Camparis are just as good,  though.

This is dinner. Times 10. (The crackers, not the glasses of fino.)

 

Sobrasada (raw, cured, spreadable chorizo) and brined cockles on Jatz crackers, a very cold glass of fino sherry on the side.

Dinner last night out with Johnnybird and a friend, Aurora, who is east to clean up her brother's estate.  Went to her go to place in Caldwell, NJ, Calandra's Italian Village.  They both had the whole wheat penne with game hen and I had a salad of watermelon and tomato with goat cheese, candied walnuts and a balsamic and olive oil drizzle along with an appetizer of their meatballs sugo.  When we do go here I ALWAYS order the appetizer as part of my main.  15 mini meatballs in their own marinara that are light and the sauce is so flavorful...I did share at the end with the other two.   Perfect bite on a hot and humid night.

Cold or hot borscht runs in my veins.  Sour cream powers my brain.  You can take a person out of Russia but you can not take borscht out of her or him.  Very timely post since my son and I have just spent six days in Moscow making arrangements for my father's caregiving.  Beets rock!

I love summer for many reasons but close to the top of the list is just having little tidbits like this from the garden to munch on before dinner

Jamaican jerk pork loin. Cooked with pecan smoke.

Mango habanero slaw.

And the not very photogenic but very tasty rice & peas.

Sunday dinner...

jamaica1.jpg

Cooked chicken broth, cider vinegar, brown sugar, lime juice, molasses, habanero, garlic, fresh thyme and crushed allspice berries to make what I'm calling Jamaican bbq sauce. Not at all authentic Jamaican and not really bbq sauce but it's mighty tasty with the pork.

@Thanks for the Crepes - thank you!  I actually buy those Campari tomatoes all the time.  They are great all year long, it seems.  And, yep, I get them at FL.  I love grape tomatoes, too, but they are hard to make a tomato sandwich out of, so I was thrilled to find the Campari when I was jonesing for a tomato and Dukes sandwich in December!

 

Last night started with salads w/ ginger dressing:

And, as Bruce (eG) used to call them, eternal cucumbers (in summer, at least, we ALWAYS have marinated cukes in the fridge:
