Doncha hate it when you get home from the supermarket and realize you've forgotten the ferric orthophosphate? Again? :P

I have little problem with MSG.   I think it has received a worse rap than it deserves.

Neither do I. Media here in US turned it into such a devil.

You know how when you use your food processor sometimes the veggie you're slicing shifts in the feed tube and instead of a slice you get something that's more cut on the bias/diagonal?

I made spaghetti and meatballs last night using Paul Newman's "Italian Sausage & Peppers Pasta Sauce". I opened the jar and poured the sauce into a glass bowl to heat it up in the microwave, and out of the jar plopped nice big chunks of onion and huge slices of sausage. I know it's not meant to be sliced this way but I'm not complaining. In fact I'm thinking about going back to the store where I bought it and buying more jars of that sauce in hopes that more of the jars in that shipment have chunky sauce, as well.:) I know, I know...I need to get out more.xD

Cold noodles (actually pasta cooked in alkaline water), fire roasted eggplants with chili oil. Fish fragrant sauce with ginger, garlic, fermented bean paste, sesame oil, black vinegar, some soy sauce and hoisin for sweetness, msg, chili, sesame oil (the sauce is the bottom of the bowl, to be mixed). Cucumbers and scallions. And an egg.

@liamsaunt – what an incredible fried meal!  That is my favorite shore meal!  I’ve only ever had whole belly clams twice – both times in a restaurant in Jacksonville FL.  We went two times in the week we were there, and they were so good that they were the only thing I ordered both nights!  And those onion rings look absolutely perfect.  It’s hard to get anything but batter dipped rings anymore, but much prefer the crumb coated.

 

Dinner last night included the wonderful gazpacho that Mr. Kim made from a lot of our produce stand haul:

IMG_2783.thumb.jpg.7c683f6671457528f58f56e098de6725.jpg

Rice flour/beer batter fried shrimp, beets (for Mr. Kim), naan, and cocktail sauce flavored with this stuff:

Mr. Kim was able to order two bottles of this limited edition of hot sauce.  It is perfect with seafood.  Also tomatoes and corn:

Gazpacho looks so good.  I've never made that ...I'm thinking this summer would be a good time to try it.  I like your idea with pairing shrimp with it.  Ronnie always has to have a protein.

 

AND that Old Bay Hot Sauce!  Wow!  I had no idea they made that.  I googled but wasn't able to find some to buy except for Ebay and it was like triple the price I bet.  I hope they make some more.

I made lasagne in that CSO-sized deep lasagne pan and we had it for dinner for three nights in a row with some salad or garlic bread, but neither of us complained one bit. I did get tired of taking photos of it, though. 🤣

Pesto Pizza! Basil and early girls from the garden. Crust is the master dough with starter from The Pizza Bible (Tony's pizza in North Beach is my favorite). 

Cooked on the grill on a pizza stone. Drizzle of arbequina and fresh basil. So good!

Fagioli E Tonno.  Rancho Gordo Marcella beans.  Which I aspirated, choked on, and thought I might die.  Other than that, delicious.

I lost track of time yesterday and forgot to go to the fish market until after it was closed, so we ended up doing takeout. We shared a couple of appetizers.  Polenta fritter with slow roasted tomato and burrata

Husband's brother ordered swordfish pasta

outstanding T.O. !

 

money-mouth.gif.1a42bd4ce63d5e647598eedd9350c1e4.gif

 

when I saw that  ' tomato ' pasta dish

 

I thought I saw   ' S.V. egg yolks !'

 

what an outstanding TO service you must have !

 

then I realized there isn't a TO service that could get you the SV Yolks whole like that

 

so they were tomatoes .

 

it broke my heart 

 

it did.

Pasta itself looks very toothesome - oops overused goofy descriptor - but not sure how else to describe its appeal

Last night's spaghetti cacio e pepe. I like to toast the peppercorns a bit, and then grind them in the mortar - I think it ups the dish.

Snack with drinks...
