Thanks, @jedovaty, those are always in my freezer, like the cod from Costco and their scallops are the only frozen scallops I’d buy. I guess I need to wait for one more year to go to Spain or Italy for the kind of seafood I have in mind 😅

Hmm.. I'll give those a cautious try.  I'm a bit spoiled with fresh seafood having a Santa Monica Seafood outlet nearby, and also there's a grocery store near my work that carries some amazing fresh scallops sometimes (6-8 per pound they are HUGE!). 😛

Some of my local markets source from Santa Monica Seafood. Excellent vendor. I grew up with the Cigliano kids.

Haven't heard of them, assuming it's a seafood vendor?

Every time I go back home, this is the place I go. It’s just a food shack  on the rocks, they  barely cook their fish. Oasi del Riccio, in Savelletri, Puglia. Riccio means sea urchin,  you can order a tray of 50 sea urchins for 35 euros, link to the menu in English here. Once you are used to this, all the rest is a pale comparison 😒

Yesterday was my birthday and I was planning to make a small beef tenderloin roast with a wine sauce and an apple cake.  I found out at the store that that roast cost $28.00/lb and changed my mind. I got a couple of ribeye steaks instead. I already bought the wine so made the sauce anyway but I didn't like it and threw it out.  Right about then Charlie asked me what I wanted to have for dinner and I asked if our favorite Korean restaurant had reopened yet. He said it was open for pick-up orders so i said that was what I wanted and it was a very nice dinner. The apple cake was dessert.  No pictures were taken.   The steaks got grilled today.

@kayb  - I think that I missed wishing you a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

 

@RWood – thank you for the link for the potatoes.  I will be making those.  I would love to have them with @Duvel's roulade!

 

@shain – the khachapuri looks insanely good. I know that I’ve had one somewhere, but can’t imagine where. 

 

@Norm Matthews – Happy Birthday! (We seem to have LOTS of July birthdays at eG)

 

Leftover meatloaf means sandwiches.  Toasted cheese bread, BBQ sauce, Cheddar, and Durkee onions:

IMG_2846.jpg.c80f602e4a712a76be25841080a5f9cd.jpg

Along with yellow squash, broccoli salad, and the last of Mr. Kim’s gazpacho:

@Duvelshowed a picture of some really good looking spaghetti and meat sauce the other day in the lunch thread, I think.  I was swooning over it and Mr. Kim said he’d make some today:

It was so good and exactly what I wanted.  Salad and garlic bread made with cheese bread:

And Jessica brought over some home made ice cream that she bought from someone she knows:

On the left is peaches and cream and on the right is smoked bourbon and peaches.  The peaches came from a friend who was driving up from Georgia.  The flavors were divine, but there was a bit of iciness like there almost always is in the homemade stuff.

Last night was a stir fry to use aging occupants of the vegetable drawer. Broccoli, carrots, tofu, a shallot. I tossed the tofu cubes with some hoisin as they browned in the wok, which added nice color. A bit of bottled peanut/coconut sauce added near the end. Served with brown rice.

Happy Birthdays to @kayb and @Norm Matthews!!

 

I had periodontal surgery on Wednesday.  Ugh.  Not supposed to eat anything with seeds, but oh HELL no I can't not eat tomatoes!!!  Hopefully I don't get myself in trouble lol.  Ronnie caught some catfish yesterday so I did some up in beer batter.

Rigatoni in rose sauce with blistered tomatoes, onion, lots of chives, Parmesan, a little vodka and garlic. This is one of my favorite pasta recpies, I've been making it for years. Not heavy on the cream, the onion and chives complement the taste, and the cherry tomatoes add texture and freshness. 

Served with semi-dry rose wine (pairs well, as the names suggests) and a simple vegetable salad.

Our neighbour was out on his boat a couple of days ago and brought us back some of his salmon catch again. He's very generous that way! We had kind of a teriyaki salmon dinner, sandwiches for lunch the next day and quite a bit more in the freezer. #BestNeighbourEver  😄

 

IMG_20200715_201149.thumb.jpg.68b3227d2103f7d6dc09762d78d3f73c.jpg

 

Then last night we had pork cutlets made with panko crumbs.

Nothing at all special about the way these meals were cooked or plated. I was quite busy trying to do other things while cooking and really needed to use up veggies as the new CSA box had arrived and the crisper drawers were full. We received the carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, peas, beets, potatoes and parsley in the current or previous week!

I found my freedom on Blueberry Hill when I found you................actually in a bowl of Hainanese Chicken Rice on Singapore Hill.

 

First place I had Hainanese Chicken Rice was in Singapore and got addicted immediately until I went to Malaysia and started tearing up.....

 

This one I enjoyed lovingly. The Chicken sliced over the rice and the Chicken broth on the side to be enjoyed as such or poured over the chicken.

To complicated the taste buds, four sauces were served which now gives a mind scratching number of combinations and permutations.

Chicken and rice mixed with chicken broth and ginger sauce and sweet soya sauce and tamarind sauce and sambal sauce....

At the butcher that had a suckling pig roll, which is essentially the deboned belly and back in one piece, connected by the still attached skin. I scored the meat, rubbed rosemary, fennel, lemon zest, chili, garlic & salt in, rolled the whole thing up and SV for 24h @ 68oC. Roasted in the oven to get a lovely suckling pig porchetta ...

Final assembly with baby spinach and a sauce made from two whole grain mustards & the bag juices.
