bacon egg and cheese.. Arugula with lemon and salt, sriracha, land o lakes cheese... The cheese sort of melted off the egg a bit as it took me and extra minute or two to track down the spatula.. Still can find it and had to use a pastry tool... English muffin

 

Lots of pepper and a little srircha after the pic.. Also, you can see the cheesy sort of burnt crust that formed. Sort of a happy accident.

@KennethT 

 

Ive had similar Fz Bus  from Ranch88 or more local small  chinese / oriental groceries 

 

you are correct , no awards    but you have them

 

i sued to get  fresh on BOS  Chinatown , and  they were spectacular.

 

hope to do that again in the future.

 

I doubt there is a Trader Joes near you

  

but they have a few Fz  " Thai " gyoza buns that are to die for.   

 

to pick up responsibly

When I pulled out Mark Vetri's Mastering Pasta yesterday, I spied a recipe for Farfalle with Chorizo and Favas.  I had favas in the freezer and was convinced there was a small piece of Spanish chorizo in the fridge so I embarked on making the farfalle this morning using the Whole Egg, Bread Flour and Stone-Ground Wheat Dough from his book.  The chorizo went missing so I settled on some 'nduja instead.  Vetri calls for Pantaleo, a hard, aged goat cheese from Sardinia.  I subbed Cabrillo, a Spanish-style goat & cow cheese from Stepladder Creamery on the California central coast.

Next time, I'll roll dough a little thinner but it was a good learning experience - I used pinking shears to cut the dough 🤣 and a satisfactory lunch with a glass of syrah.

So I made this carrot and fennel soup... I took the tops of a dozen fennel the other day and instead of tossing them. i took them home with me.. I have been trying to find different ways to use the fennel top.. Plus, as I am on lock down, it's one of the only green things I have... So, I have make a fennel pesto, a fennel pesto marinade,  fennel salad.. Last night, I made fennel and carrot soup and this morning I made fennel simple syrup and fennel caramel.  I plan on making fennel top falafel tomorrow, 

 

So here is the soup.. Carrot, onion, fennel tops, a half a fennel, homemade turkey stock.. I added a bit of fennel simple syrup and some curry at the end. 

 

Whoops, i guess an apple too:

Made a simple beer bread:

I made a batch of pizza dough from Ken Forkish FWSY and used two portions of dough yesterday for pizza with homemade pork sausage and pepperjack.    Today I used one portion for pizza with smoked turkey, more pepperjack and oil cured olives.  The remaining dough was roughly formed and baked after the pizza was cooked.  I used the gas grill both days.

Superstore Instacart Grocery Delivery brought me two beautiful heads of cauliflower.
 

Oven roasted cauliflower steak with Creole seasoning, steamed green beans and tomato chunks = great lunch!

Lunch today, Fish and Chips!  Fish is cod.  

 

Bit more involved then we usually do for lunch, but my wife teaches in the later afternoon/evening so can't do this mid week and we picked up groceries too late on Sunday to make this on the weekend.

Nothing is better than frying in lard.

Nothing.  Do not quote me on this.

I’m Pennsylvania Dutch and my mother’s maiden name was Seltzer.  I grew up eating summer sausage, aka Lebanon Bologna.  I would eat it on buttered white bread with potato chips. My mother also use to roll them up with cream cheese.

There's a local sandwich shop that does something similar to this, with a wonderful oil and vinegar dressing. I love it because for those of us who are off gluten, they'll wrap it in lettuce leaves. Then it's an "unwich."

I remember eating these sandwiches years and years ago.  My Syrian aunt's mother (that sounds like a sentence from a foreign language lesson: "the sister of my uncle's wife"😁  ) would get these giant sheets of lavash from somewhere and stuff them full of cold cuts and cheeses and vegetables, sprinkle with a lemon and oil dressing and roll them up in a towel.  They'd sit in the fridge for a couple of hours and then she'd slice them and load up a platter.  Mine was sadly not that stellar, but it was pretty dern good.
