Spaghetti with chili and mint (from my garden)

Looks great but I think you need to expand "garden" as indoor carefully curated but possible in an NYC apartment ;)

@BonVivant your cherry dumplings are so lovely. Have you ever tried making them--or other fruit dumplings--in potsticker fashion to get a crispy bottom? I've made "apple wonton fritters" doing a shallow fry so they are crispy, but never thought to use round dumpling wrappers for a fruity snack. Sounds so good!

 

I have actually done dumplings gyoza-style, with blueberries. Unfortunately, there was no natural light that day and this week I'm out of dumpling wrappers. Next time.

Are they sweet cherries or sour cherries?

 

 

I don't know the name of this variety but it's big, fat, juicy, sweet-sour kind.

Lunch today, we got fresh corn from my sister (picked this morning) and had potatoes to use.  When my wife said she was in the mood for a potato salad I looked in Jack Bishop's book and found a recipe for this:20200802_112623.thumb.jpg.fbbe5937de950d9323dfc87c53b59c31.jpg

 

It's Creamy Potato Salad with Southwestern Flavors

 

I normally hate potato salad, but Jack uses less Mayo then my wife says most do, and adds chipotle chilies, lime juice, and cilantro.

 

I really enjoyed this, and the corn was really good too!

@shain – great color on that corn!

 

@robirdstx– dern!  I need to make that cheese.  I even went out and got the right cheese sticks. 

 

On Wednesday we picked up lunch at a local deli.  Mr. Kim had the “club”:

It was honestly a little stodgy.  It needed more bacon or some ham – there was just way too much dry turkey.  And the tomatoes were almost non-existent – unforgivable in VA in summer.  I had the ham, roast beef, salami, muenster sandwich with Russian dressing:

The meats were delicious and plentiful and the bread, as always fantastic, but it needed more cheese and dressing.  We shared this enormous “side salad”:

It was in one of those square sandwich clamshells, but when fluffed out into a bowl, it was more than enough for both of us.  They need to bottle and sell their 1000 Island dressing. 

 

Lunch on Thursday was weird.  I started with this marked down Ukrops’ (local food manufacturer – used to be a grocery store) single serving sausage quiche:

IMG_3001.jpg.3a5bd6c6db1a99c64258640f58657fe5.jpg

It tasted very good, but the sausage had a really unpleasant texture.  It was almost as if a very thin, crunchy plastic had been put into the sausage.  I don’t know what it could have been, but it was very off-putting, so I tossed it and got out some crackers and “crab” dip:

MUCH better!

 

I had a couple of days of not feeling so great, but woke up yesterday feeling much better, and we decided to pick Jessica up and drive over to Charlottesville to get lunch at Al Carbon.  This is a central American place and our official family restaurant, perhaps our favorite food destination on the planet.  We’ve introduced everyone we can to Al Carbon.  We just order everything we like and take home what we can’t finish.  We found a cool, shady, secluded place in a city park and had a picnic.   Chicken:

@Kim Shook, food looks great. Is that white stuff (in the cemitas) all cheese? It almost looks like cole slaw as well. Looks like some avocado (above and below the meats) and some mayo as well? TIA.

Yep.  That's all cheese - no slaw.  And definitely avocado.  But they don't mention any mayo or dressing of any kind.  I don't think that even fresh  Oaxaca cheese is that creamy?  Not sure about that.
