I love the chocolate shavings!  It looks like dessert!



Sumac, it’s sumac.  Also, when can I come over for one of your pizzas?  I will drive you around all day long to procure the ingredients ;)

I started off making chicken salad for Deb's lunch, but quickly changed direction, thinking that I could make soup, use up all the leftovers and put a check in the dinner box as well. Tonight I used the Red Lobster Rosemary Garlic Parmesan biscuit mix, which we both loved!

After a cold, wet tropically torrential autumn afternoon I needed air conditioning and comfort food:




Mashed potatoes a la Kenji, informed as always by Herve This.  Copious cranberry sauce and methode rotuts not shown.


I did make it out to harvest a few waterlogged tomatoes.

I saw these in the local Walmart Neighborhood Grocery store. A little odd in that they were charging ten cents more for it than the cost of the box of the regular Cheddar Bay Biscuits. 

Must be worth it! :laugh:

The store had some meaty looking ham hocks so that decided dinner. They didn't have any collards or spinach, just kale and turnip greens, so I decided to do bok choy separately and add them with the beans and hocks at the end.  I had a Tim Tam cookie crumbled over the last of the vanilla ice cream for dessert. It was the last cookie too so I suppose Charlie will end up raiding the Halloween candy bowl later when he gets hungry for dessert.

Rice paper wrappers with rotisserie chicken, lettuce and kimchi. Dipping sauce is sriracha mayo with a little extra kimchi thrown in because you can never have too much kimchi.
