Mojo rotisserie chicken with the first corn of the season. Our little town has a farmers market on Sundays and I stopped  there today.

Market dinner.   Started out very nutritious, then got "fried".

So-called, and never tried before, "wild spinach"

Above spinach, really good, fried green tomatoes with tartar sauce, famous eG shrimp/corn/tarragon

I posted on the "Garden Forum" a little while ago about growing giant Royal Corona beans in my garden.

 

I harvested some yesterday for dinner.

So what do you think of the behemoth beans? Flavor? Texture? Would you/will you grow 'em again?

There are many others here who have cooked and tasted these huge beans, I think they will all agree that the creamy and buttery flavor and texture are above average in the legume world.

 

Of course  I will grow them again. They are not cheap beans to buy. Growing the beans yourself is great because they are not dried out if you pick them fresh. Much faster for cooking them tender. Definitely no soaking required.

I put a pot of my favourite chili on to simmer before leaving for work on Saturday. 

 

Also cooked a pot of beans in the Breville Pressure Cooker. A combination of small red chili beans, pintos and black beans. The recipe I use is a Tex Mex chili recipe which doesn't call for beans. But I love beans in chili so I always add them.

After I got home from work all I had do was reheat the chili and make the tortillas. My favourite side with a bowl of chili.

Chili topped with cheese, homemade salsa and a little chopped red onion.

OOH that chicken has my mouth watering.

Corn is just starting to come out here.   Tomatoes, Garlic and Corn , my favourite time of year.

I am ALWAYS hungry for mashed potatoes and gravy.    D-I.L. had told me none of the three children liked potato.   None would touch it in any form.     I served them mashed potato with roast chicken gravy and we soon ran out of both potato AND gravy.

A few days ago:

Salmon sous vide at 115F. I put it in the pan to give it a crisp side but it didn't want to cooperate. Tasted good though.

@robirdstx Wow, just wow.  What great looking burgers.  Did you made your own meat or did you get it fresh ground because it's pretty 'rare' if not.  Just a stickler for safety.

 

I am not a burger fan but about four times a year I'll make a burger.  Of course I like the patty but the 'bread component' looks interesting.  I don't like commercial hamburger buns but the homemade variety  is good.  If not available I like to use Heston's recommendation of an English Muffin.  And, I have to say, after the homemade bun, the muffin is my favourite.  About a 4 or 4.5 oz burger is perfect for me.

My issue with most ciabatta for burgers is that the crust is usually too tough and that in the process of trying to bite through it, everything just squishes out.

Thank you! I did not grind the meat myself, but the burger looks pinker in the photo than it really was. It was more medium than medium rare.

We use the Marketside ciabatta rolls sold at Wal-mart. I cover the rolls while they are toasting, which allows them to steam a bit and to be soft, except on the toasted side. I don’t like trying to bite through tough ones either.

It was in the 90's today, so I chose to keep the cooking for dinner early and to a minimum. First, I made chicken soup with some of the bones and meat from last nights mojo chicken, then chicken salad with the rest. A can of cannellini beans, some lemon juice, olive oil, garlic and salt, pepper, with the immersion blender, made a pretty nice hummus. Nachos, for dipping, rounded that out. Some garlic, basil, good olive oil, sea salt, tomatoes and some good toast, made for the bruschetta I was after. Add to that a Caprese salad and dinner was pretty much covered.

I've known many people that love eating raw potatoes.   Peeled of course.  With salt.  

My mother, my husband.   Not so much large quantities but snatching pieces while you're prepping potatoes for something else.
