Lamb chops (these were sirloin so I boned them and skewered them back together then grilled on the stove top...this time 2 min/side and they were a much better shade of pink); roasted fennel/onion with salsa verde mixed in after it was cooked (in the CSO); Air Fryer smashed potatoes and a mix of morel/chanterelle mushrooms from today's farmers market.  I only ate 1/2 the potatoes...too much food.

Just ate those left over from last night for breakfast.  Garden  potatoes are just so different than those available in the grocery stores.  This time I boiled them in their skins until 3/4 of the way cooked then I took the nasty bits of skin off so they were about half way skinned.  Better earthy flavour this way.  Thanks.

This is the aubergine. Bottles for scale. It was too ugly and not uniform for the supermarket.

The caramelized peach and onion hash sounds fabulous. Details?

Woof!

It's evolving and was a spur of the moment thing...I used diced canned peaches (squirrels stripped my trees again🤬).

I used a dry pan to get the peaches real caramelized and set them aside.

Diced red onion cooked in the same pan with a small dollop of very smokey bacon fat.

Add peaches back to the pan, with a sprig of rosemary and a tsp of soy.

I let it sit while the pork roasted...fished out the rosemary...salt and pepper.

 

It was good with pork.  I think I'd add some heat next time...a bit of chipotle probably...and maybe diced rosemary.

 

And next time I'd let the pork rest before slicing  LOL

 I bet that would be wonderful with duck breast too.

Thanks. I did an ancho cream peach sauce with roast pork loin once, and it was excellent. The ancho adds a lot of flavor and a little heat. Sans peaches, it's wonderful with corn risotto.

Tonight's dinner: Corn Chowder Mac and Cheese

I prepared dinner for a group of friends the other night.   I've made and posted about all these dishes before but unfortunately managed to take only one photo from this meal.

Cocktail: Bound by Venus from Batch Cocktails by Maggie Hoffman.  As written, it's rosemary-infused gin, fino sherry and yellow Chartreuse.  I made both that original and a vodka version as I know there will be vodka-only drinkers in the group.  Some of the vodka drinkers allowed that the gin version was more flavorful - duh! 
Nibbles: Brined and Roasted Almonds and Frico from Six Seasons by Joshua McFadden.  I used more than half a pound of Red Cow Parmigiano Reggiano to make the Frico.  Not sure it was worth the investment but they were excellent salty snacks to go with the cocktails. 
Starter: Burrata Caprese with Peaches, Tomato & Basil from Dinner, Changing the Game by Melissa Clark.  Four kinds of heirloom tomatoes and peaches from the farmers market with a drizzle of basil/lemon/olive oil dressing.  So pretty.

1432753806_IMG_1557(1).thumb.jpg.2dc173a25594106e423baefaad01d03d.jpg
Main: Pork Shoulder in Red-Curry-Braised Watermelon from Deep Run Roots by Vivian Howard.  Pork choices at the farmers market were limited so I went with a nice pork butt roast and cut it up.  Cooking this ahead and reheating worked very well.
Rice - I made the version from Shaya's Red Beans & Rice but with Massa Organics brown rice because I know it reheats well and it has nice flavor
Side: Raw Corn with Walnuts, Mint & Chiles from Six Seasons was a good side that didn't need cooking

This photo is actually from a plate of leftovers but gives you the idea:

Dessert: Peaches in Chilled Moscato from How to Eat a Peach by Diana Henry made a light, elegant ending

Great idea.   Thanks.

Great looking meals everyone...my 'like and delicious' buttons are hot, hot.

Last night was grilled Porterhouse...again, like the lamb, I boned then skewered it back together seeing we were sharing it anyways (two pieces....tenderlion/strip loin parts with a Montreal Steak Spice Rub) .  Morels, broccoli & garden carrots with garlic and shallots, IP'd garden potatoes and corn from the market...so good, picked just at the right time...tiny sweet kernels.

Back home after a long weekend at the beach.  

Lunch yesterday from leftover salmon from the night before

Watching Dorian with interest.   Crazy it’s not moving but glad it’s not moving across the state to me.  Saw this as the outer bands passed over us.   Looked scary but just a bit of heavy rain

Back home.  Pan seared mahi and sea scallops with micro salad greens for dinner

Looks delicious. I think that you can categorize it as a sfincione.

Thanks., I've learned something new.    It is my approximation of Liguria Bakery's foccacia.
