It all started out well...

Comice pear with blue cheese

Then the ham needed to be glazed and shooting pics went out the window.

So dinner = spiral sliced ham and baked yam loaded with butter.

Between us, I HATE spiral sliced ham.   Husband loves them since he has a sweet tooth and the accompanying glaze.    I find we have one meal straight out of the oven, another of some kind of ham casserole and then the balance gets sent to son or trashed as it dries so much faster than whole or intact ham.   Just my take...

Yeah , completely agree. Spiral ham is an abomination. Good for buffets and in laws.

Yotam Ottolenghi, Eggplant with buttermilk sauce -- the cover dish of Plenty.  Not the first time I've prepared Eggplant with buttermilk sauce.  And not that I would second guess a master but I do make a minor alteration to the recipe.  Ottolenghi calls for roasting the eggplant at 200F.  Should you roast your eggplant at 200F you shall sit to a late supper.

 

Served with good bread.

 

As much as I enjoy Ottolenghi's buttermilk sauce, can you imagine this dish with David Chang's buttermilk ranch dressing?  I can.  And I have another eggplant.

Typo, 200 degrees celsius...US should be 400 degrees F. Beautiful plate.

As well, a home made Tahini sauce would also work really well in this dish!

Weird.  My copy of Plenty says to roast the eggplant at 400 degrees.  Your dish looks fantastic!

Is it possible he said/meant 200C which is roughly 400F?

 

Ooops, I see this is addressed above.

Thanks.  In the British edition of the recipe Ottolenghi calls to roast the aubergine  at 200C.  Obviously eggplant is more tender.  When I first made the dish I used the recipe from the US print version of Plenty.  But the Kindle version clearly states 200F.  Why a publisher can't fix an eBook typo after the fact I do not understand.

The other night at a Hunan place - it's not like most Americanized Hunan, but straight from the region - the owners and all employees are from there and are proud to only serve Hunan food...

Rice noodles with chicken. I first ordered it spicy, but the very nice young woman at the counter got a horrified look and said that no one would ever eat it that way. She convinced me to get medium, and I'm very glad because it was at the edge of what I could tolerate. Holy crap.

Home made shrimp/pork/chive dumplings. These were amazing.

I don’t do kindle cookbooks. I read novels on my iPad (had a kindle but it died). I prefer actual cookbooks because I write in them.

Tonight, I winged something - Our Indian cookbook has a Pilaf with Caramelized Onions and Broccoli 

 

We make a smaller amount of rice then one would want to do in a pot, so I made the rice in the rice maker, made the caramelized onions w/ cloves, green cardamom, and cinnamon.  The broccoli is fried with black mustard seeds and cumin.

 

This is all tossed with the rice, and was REALLY GOOD.  We'll be amping up the spices even more next time.

I bought the hard copy of Simple and it turned out to be his only book I didn't like.  I usually read the hard copy from the library before ordering the Kindle.

In the oven now is my LeCreuset Brasier filled with Sicilian Baked Sausage.

Italian sausage links, sliced sweet pepper (orange), onion, carrots, potato with s/p, dried basil and red pepper flakes.  Poured over a can of Italian diced tomatoes.  Smells yummy.
