Dinner 2019


Recommended Posts

had a wonderful time last night with another couple for dinner.  Mara and Dave roasted some brats she bought from Costco and hey were really tasty.  We sautéed some Vidalias and mixed color peppers to serve with them on some toasted buns.  We had a big salad of arugula, chives and chive blossoms, cherry tomatoes, olives, lemon and I'm not sure what else.  I had picked up several packages of pierogies from Quaker Creek near Pine Island NY.  Desserts were phyllo shells with mixed berries and wj

hipped cream and figs with Ewe's blue stuffed into them, wrapped with a mantle of thinly sliced prosciutto then grilled.  Leftovers are going to be sliced up and tossed with some of the leftover arugula for salad today

Nothing is better than frying in lard.

Nothing.  Do not quote me on this.

This was listed as a Bacon Cheeseburger meat loaf.  It is intended to be eaten as a sandwich on the first day instead of as a leftovers sandwich the next day.  They said to have it on a hamburger bun with lettuce and ranch dressing.  As a hamburger it was good but we couldn't taste the cheese. As a meatloaf, it was just another meatloaf.

you seem to live in the area where I grew up

 

Nice a real deal cantaloup 

 

keep your eyes peeled for a 

 

galia melon

 

galia melon

 

cross it might seem from a cantaloup and a honey dew.

 

ripe

 

they are to die for

 

 

To die for, absolutely.    The melons of our life were bought on our way home from the country,  Louise Road, Lathrop.    There was a packing house along there and they'd set up a stall and sell "over-ripe" honeydews for something like 8/$1.00.   We'd haul them home and parcel them out to friends who to this day say that they will never have another decent melon, once having tasted these fruit of the gods.   

We will look for Galia melons.   They sound "divine" indeed.

For folks in cold zones, it's kind of a waste of time to try to grow artichokes. Not enough time for them  to set blossoms.

 

But don't give up. Look up 'Vernalization' for growing artichokes. It works.  I did (my zone 6 area ).

 

Artichokes are better if you grow your own, because you can pick them young while they are tender. You can pick them with long stems (the best part). You can pick them with young leaves (also nice tender and tasty). They are also very decorative in your garden landscape.

I grew up within 20 miles of the "Artichoke Capital of the World".     They were on our table and in our fridge as snacks throughout the season.    Food of the gods, indeed.     We've grown them in our backyard in SF, certainly not a warm weather  area but/and similar to the Central California coast artichoke growing belt.    Without doubt my favorite veg.

We had some wonderful clams with pasta the other night, and today, I could not resist the urge to return for more, this time just to have with garlic, herb and wine broth. These were not a disappointment! I served them with warm bread.IMG_0443.thumb.JPG.f6421af227dfaff554098965d7f5eaed.JPGIMG_0444.thumb.JPG.50babecb40713c858e28daba4a710355.JPGIMG_0446.thumb.JPG.bc4c92b91bad85f948dc10bef8c13281.JPG

This last photo is a testimonial to how much we enjoyed them. I saved the leftover herb broth for some future endeavor.

I'm gonna cook tomorrow. I swear I am.

 

It's been so long.

 

But I do have country style ribs in the SV for the Fourth, and the layers for coconut cake cooling on the counter.

Oh, I thought they were plastic.

 

Pizza tonight here, whenever I finish my mai tai.  And assuming I don't drop it* on the floor.  Oven is preheating.

 

 

* mai tai or pizza.

Dinner last night started with English cucumbers topped with Jessica’s pickled shallots:

Grilled chicken thighs with Bullseye sauce:

 Even though I was introduced to real BBQ at a young age by visiting my grandparents in NC, this is what was meant by BBQ chicken in our house.  My mom never grilled it either.  It was oven baked (usually bone in and skin on pieces of chicken) and slathered in Kraft BBQ sauce, then broiled for a few minutes to give it a little char.  I loved that chicken and still do.  

 

Corn from a peach orchard in Crozet, VA that we visited over the weekend:

Served with Parmesan noodles (a mix) and broccoli:
