You do do have a bathroom, do you not?

Nikomi hamburg which has been unappetizingly translated as “stewed hamburger”. However, for someone who is not a fan of hamburgers but is a fan of Salisbury steak this is a tasty compromise.

 

There are probably as many versions as there are Japanese families. In this version ground pork and ground beef are combined with seasonings and binders, formed into oval patties, browned, and then finished  in a sweet and sour sauce.  Served with rice, steamed broccoli and tomatoes.

 Love the single-headed garlic which you introduced me to. It is becoming more common now in our Asian stores and I have a few bulbs in the house.

It's the only garlic  I use now.  I have more than a few bulbs.

I also recently found some fermented black single-headed garlic.

 Now that I have not seen. But I can’t say that I was looking for it. Trips to the Asian store are infrequent and only rarely leave time for leisurely exploration. But I will be on the lookout for it on my next visit.

It's rare here, too and all my stores are Asian! Only one place had it that I know of and they only had two packs, both of which I bought, of course.

Single headed garlic?  Aka Young garlic??

 Nope. I hope @liuzhou will chime in again and explain it.

We've seen the single headed garlic for sure - noticed it again the other day when I was in the Asian store that is on my way home from the Mission. We could blacken it ourselves.

Yes, I was with you couple of weeks ago and I picked up a tiny basket of it.

It was Canadian Thanksgiving today, so of course there was the obligatory turkey. Aside from the bird and the dressing, there were new baby potatoes from my garden, baked buttercup squash, fresh shell peas, steamed broccoli, cauliflower and asparagus, multi-color carrots from my garden, green and yellow string beans, baby turnips from my garden, brussels sprouts caramelized with onions and bacon, and lots of mixed greens from my garden (holiday meals at my place are always something of a "veggie-palooza"). Also I made pan rolls, Marian Burros' plum torte (because the plums are in season right now) and a blueberry cobbler.

 

No photos, because I didn't think of it until we'd finished filling our faces.

Pinto beans and hot Italian chicken sausage from Aldi. I loaded this pot up with fresh sage, thyme and rosemary. The beans were quite excellent, but the sausage was not a fave. I served this with small salads (that were never touched and were covered up and put right back in the fridge) and cheddar bay biscuits. As a little side note, that pot with the beans and sausage fit nicely into the Ipot, something I will not soon forget. This one was done with canned pinto beans, but once I get the flavors zeroed in, I will start with dried beans.

Here is the dish from a recent trip to Italy, hat I was shooting for:

This dish was so memorable, with crusty Tuscan bread, that I will try to recreate it quite a few more times,

although aside from the sausage, I was pretty happy with this effort.

Starting my turkey gravy today for Thanksgiving (and a sooner than that turkey dinner - had to take a turkey out of the freezer to make room for all the soon to be goodies I'll be making for our church Holiday Market):

DSCN8660.JPG.2551e0cd951145bdc3838531f3f93627.JPG

Currently roasting turkey necks, onions, celery, carrots, tomato paste, Bell’s seasoning and sage.  When done roasting it will all go into slow cookers with chicken broth to make my stock.  We'll all wake up tomorrow morning craving a turkey dinner!

 

Wow Kim! That is going to make one awesome gravy. I do love a good gravy.

Dinner tonight was supposed to have been Chicken with Fennel, Preserved Lemon, and Olives, a la @Wolfert.  For which I made a special trip to the store.  I got the olives.

 

Today's trip to the store was in what one might call Scotch mist, not the loveliest of weather.  And after baking two loaves of tonight's bread I had not the stamina for a Wolfert recipe.  Dinner was actually olives, bread, Ramapo tomatoes, provolone, Soave, salami, chocolate.
