Do you shred and dress a big portion of cabbage all at once, or do it as you make your sandwich?

 this rather simple dish exceeded all my expectations in terms of taste and texture. It is based on a Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall  recipe from Hugh’s Three Good Things.  

 

In this case the three things were tomatoes, bread and eggs with the option of adding some mozzarella cheese and I decided to add some parsley. 

 

 The tomatoes are seasoned and drizzled with olive oil before being roasted in the oven. While that is happening,  some day-old bread is torn into chunks and also tossed with oil and seasoning.  As the tomatoes begin to take on some colour the bread is tucked in among them so that part of it is soaking up tomato juice and part of it is becoming wonderfully crunchy. When things seem to be coming along nicely an egg is broken into the centre and the optional cheese added here and there. The egg I chose happened to be a double yolker and wouldn’t you know it? I broke both yolks. Cooking continues until the egg is done to one’s satisfaction.

Because I love the crunch of fresh cabbage, I slice it real thin on the meat slicer to order, dress it,

then use it on the sandwich. Cleaning the slicer is a minor issue, after slicing lettuce or cabbage.

Battered hake pieces from the fishmonger. I ate half of it standing in front of the market stall, the rest was lunch the next day.

For the first time in decades I dressed it with a commercial dressing (bought for another application).   Back to homemade dressing next time.

Tuna salad sandwich made with Genova tuna, Best Foods mayo, minced celery and onion, Steinfeld's sweet pickle relish and white pepper served on honey whole wheat bread.

And an iced mug of red beer.

Yum.

I also just finished making tuna and mayo.  Rolled a couple corn tortillas with the tuna filling.   I really like the toasted corn flavor with the tuna salad

Yesterday was a toasted ham and cheese; today was corned beef hash with hard scrambled egg.  

Gotta get off now - the husband has to check our investment accounts and then get on to do some buying as the stock market is adjusting,

Exceptionally fresh sole from WF (on sale for 5.99 a pound) sautéed at low heat, served with cabbage and salsa verde.  Fillets are thin and delicate so I cut them in half prior to cooking to make transfer to the plate easier.

@chefmd

 

C*Rap

 

Id put on a disguise 

 

to go to WF for 

 

"" Exceptionally fresh sole from WF ""

 

if the sale extends

 

consider stacking  two w a bread crumb mixture inbetween

 

then bake un tip the fish is Just Done

 

you can torch the top breadcrumbs is you like

 

a little dry white wine , some fresh finely chopped  bread crumbs  some garlic , not too much , a shallot or onion

 

the same  and of course some melted butter

 

it your herbs are  on the stinger side , use less

 

i like cilantro , flat leaf parsley 

 

don't like cilantro ?  not problem

 

just keep the herbs muted  so the Fish and hint of Wine shine through

 

the mistake would be to add too much Wine

 

the water in the wine would make the crumb mixture soggy !

I had some extra filling from the mini Jamaican beef patties I made as part of tonight's Super Bowl food. Dumping it on some tortilla chips, topping it with cheese and chopped green onions, baking it and eating with the habanero salsa I had in the fridge seemed like a good lunch plan. Jamaican nachos! Unfortunately, while not actually bad, it wasn't as tasty as it sounded in my head for some reason. Maybe my brain is in slow motion today and was expecting more conventional flavors. Anyway, it got rid of leftovers... that's always a good thing.

Had some farmers market fennel that needed to be used up so I made the Spaghetti with Spiced Sausage & Fennel Sauce from Diana Henry's Simple.

Nothing fancy, but it hit the spot and the fennel is no more xD To paraphrase @Tri2Cook, getting rid of leftovers something in the crisper drawer is always a good thing!
