Broccoli di cicco, pan fried with garlic. This stuff is so good, sweet and tender with no blanching necessary.

I made this classic ginger scallion sauce, which goes so nicely with chicken. And everything.

Some cooking fatigue...had homemade spinach soup which I had made earlier in the day (liquified creamed spinach, yum), shrimp/seafoid burgers from the freezer (TJ’s) and frozen white/yellow corn mix.

Spinach salad with dates, almonds, and sumac crusted pita from Ottolenghi's Jerusalem

 

salad.thumb.jpg.1c0cd5b551247815846c8e6d3a744465.jpg

 

Then, from his cookbook Simple, two recipes: oregano-ricotta meatballs, and pasta with spiced tomato sauce.  The meatballs were very light from the ricotta cheese.  This is my 21 year old nephew's plate--no way could I eat that much food.

I love this salad, though I make it with silan rather than dates.

I feel your pain, and seriously was thinking about something along the lines of Top Ramen last night. However...

 

1528114653_Risotto4mushroom05-17.jpeg.e7bcdab0dbd4f9f74954a9cd679d3a98.jpeg

 

This 4-mushroom risotto was made in under an hour, already had the stock made, so was a fairly easy endeavor.

 

720057836_Zucchini05-17.jpeg.0f0f25393612b1943afd55c514621c6e.jpeg

 

And sautéed some zucchini with red pepper flakes and vinegar, while the rice was cooking.

 

If I only didn't have to clean up.

Looks superb! Recipe, please?

 

 We used https://www.budgetbytes.com/naan/ as it was simple and included yogurt.  Only deviation was adding a about a teasp of veg oil to the pan.  Enjoy!

@Eatmywords, what did you do with the leftovers? There are only two here (and no dinner guests), so this is a big recipe to make.

@liuzhou – pork chops with HP is a perfect picture of my hybrid childhood – Southern US mother and British stepdad! Momma would make battered and fried pork chops and I’d have two little ones – one with her gravy and the other with HP!

 

@Shelby – Mr. Kim would LOVE asparagus gratin!  It never occurred to me to do it.  Just a plain bechamel or a cheesy one?  And did you blanch them first? It just occurred to me that this Boursin Potatoes recipe shortcut sauce would work really well for this, too. 

 

@scubadoo97 – your grouper looks wonderful!  Would you share your recipe, please?

 

 

Dinner last night was the same as the night before – Lasagna Soup – only last night I remembered to add the spinach at the end:

IMG_2254.thumb.jpg.960c4ba4ba77a9521a23e8ee5a080f2e.jpg

Really good reheated.  And a salad:

IMG_2253.thumb.jpg.c9db9aca79a24288488a6c6b2ca79d9a.jpg

I tend to be lazy when it comes to salad dressing and use bottled.  And then I’ll shame myself into making my own.  I even special ordered a fairly attractive container that I could mix and serve the dressing in:

IMG_2261.thumb.jpg.629073d03c04aa3284330cd62e340d83.jpg

It is so much better than bottled and yet, I know I’ll probably get lazy again sometime soon 🙄

C'mon, the 2 of you can't eat 4 each? 😲   They freeze well actually, follow her instrux - let cool, zip lock.

Oh it's so easy!  I tossed asparagus (non-blanched) with salt, pepper, some garlic slivers and a bit of red pepper flakes (optional), put it in the dish, drizzled with heavy cream and sprinkled with fresh parm and some slices of racelette cheese and maybe some mozz. cheese (can't remember lol)--any melty cheese would work.  Bake at 400F for about 20 mins.  Put oven up to broil for a couple of mins. if you want to brown the cheese up a bit.

Since I'd received an amazon delivery last night's dinner was to be bluefish.  But after a three and a half mile walk, one thing and another, it got to be midnight and I realized I had not started the baked potato.  Not to worry, I sat down with my mai tai* and peanuts.  Peanuts were the first thing I'd eaten since the night before.

 

Two hours later the potato was ready but I realized I was not hungry enough for bluefish.  I had coleslaw with what of the potato I could finish.

 

 

*fooled you.  It was actually Mississippi punch, minus the cognac which I am low on in the pandemic.

I don't care much for bottled but they do appear in the house from time to time (little one likes baby carrots dipped in Ranch for ex).  Can be fun to experiment w.  A spoon of ranch in a dijon vinaigrette adds a nice creamy dimension and tastes pretty good.

Amazon bluefish*, Philips grilled asparagus, wild rice.  Melissa Clark's anchovy caper sauce currently featured in the NY Times.  Followed by Rainier cherries.

 

*Yes, I am aware, bluefish is not a riparian species.

Someone is getting the short end of the stick!
