Only natas. Oranges are in season at the moment. All the cafes and snack bars juice them to order.

I presume you mean "eat".

 

You arm yourself with a toothpick and winkle out the flesh, eat it, then suck the spicy, garlicky juices from the shell.

 

Repeat until replete.

 

 

Oh my - a new repeatable phrase "repeat until replete" - brilliant :)

For no particular reason this dish reminds me of an article in yesterday's local paper.  Three Chinese clam poachers were apprehended by the police with an estimated 22,093 illegal clams in their vehicle, destined for a NYC restaurant.  The clam poaching has been ongoing many months.  Not many yards downstream from two sewage facilities.

 

 

Oh well the local Japanese population would collect mussels off the the rocks even when signs warned "danger" - nobody died...

You reminded me that dried shrimp are missing from my pantry. I have great access- I just  added to the list (which I typed as lust - oh the brain)- cuz w/o the list  am a loose dog in the store

We usually go out somewhere for brunch after church, but Mr. Kim spent the whole day smoking 6 pork butts for aA  church fundraiser, so this was what I served:

A Carolina dog (mustard, chili, and slaw) and Fritos.  Both the slaw and the chili were purchased, but the dogs were Kirkland, so that raised the level a bit. 😄

It's the tail end of the salmon season, we managed to find some fresh coho salmon at our local grocery.

 

Cooked Sous Vide  at 113F with at little bit of soy sauce and toasted sesame seed oil.

 

Steamed a red potato and some broccoli for a side.  Very tasty.

Grilled endive and radicchio. Grilled shiitake (and a couple cherry tomatoes) with some chickpeas and a little bit of Chile crunch condiment, parsley, garlic, a squeeze of lemon, some shredded leftover chicken thigh. 

If it wasn’t for those chickpeas…… This would be close to perfection.

Made a double batch of @caroled's baked beans for my FIL's 80th birthday party on Saturday:

As always, they were very popular.

 

There were enough leftovers for one of my favorite dishes for lunch today - Beanie Wienie:

Made with @caroled's beans and Kirkland dogs, it was exceptionally good!  Also I've still got some of the crackers that I made when we had company last week.  They are good, but cornbread would have been perfect.

I've moved on to rural Spain after taking 4 different buses from Tavira, Portugal. Had a simple lunch of jamón whilst waiting for the 4th bus to reach my destination Alajár.

Hand-sliced jamón, olives, bread and beer. This is one of the most basic meals here in the heart of jamón producing Sierra de Aracena.

Even the supermarket is called ham.

Portugal has relaxed alcohol laws. Half the menu is alcohol and this is a pasty shop.

Did an 8hr hike today... Oh my legs! More photos of Jamón can wait.

I got a copy of Nigellas' 'Kitchen' for $7 in a shopping centre book sale. I perused it with the kid who asked me to make the 'Marmite Spaghetti'. So I did.

He loved it. But I didn't really ... get it. Smelt like warm marmite, tasted like buttery Parmesan pasta 🤷‍♀️

Do you mean you didn't care for the flavor, or you didn't see the point of using Marmite to get that flavor? It looks good!

For medical reasons I'd rather not get into, I've been confined to the house this season (no garden, no clamming). One of the things I miss most, is the shopping, where I would come up with the evening meal, but I digress....

Deb picked up this snow crab cluster for me as a little lunch gift / offering the other day and after just a few minutes in the IPot, it was ready. I am pretty sure that I enjoy crab more than lobster. We have to get more of these!!

Love snow crab; especially the sweet chunks where the legs were separated from the body. . Affordable. I usually wrap in damp paper towels and nuke for a few seconds cuz I like them lukewarm. I think they get cooked on the ships before transport.

What's to eat when there's nothing to eat, country version,.

White pizza = sour cream, mozz, leftover cooked potato sliced razor thin, leftover rouille dribbled, shaved sweet onion, EVOO, parmesa.    Baked at 550 in our 75 year old inherited Wedgwood, on rack next to oven floor.    Very, very good.

Daily salad 

I’ve inspected it carefully and I don’t see any chickpeas in there. Unless they’re hiding that looks like a perfect salad.  I would love something like that. What did you dress it with? Or did you not bother? It looks good enough to eat without a dressing.
