Certainly far from photogenic - but surely not far from delicious unctuousness!

Tonight a hurricane is a blowin’,  but we still have power. I had two servings of salad with homemade croutons, dried figs, Gorgonzola, pepper jelly vinaigrette. The supporting players were arugula, spinach, red onion, butter lettuce.

Last night I had leftover soup with non homemade croutons.

And roasted delicata squash.

.really great looking potatoes. What’s your method?


Thank you! Fortunately, I took photos during the process. 😁

After frying and tossing the potatoes to get some browning on them, I added the peppers and onions, tossed and put the skillet in a 400F preheated oven. Tossed after ten minutes and then roasted for another ten minutes.

So the cheeky trip away didn't go as planned. The kid stepped on some nasty Australian Ocean critter at camp and didn't tell anyone until I noticed he couldn't walk properly. 

One emergency surgery later. This is the kids dinner.

Another day at the farmer's market yielded last night's dinner. Hudson Valley Duck, those fine purveyors of all sorts of ducky products, had fresh Moulard legs on sale - 2 whole legs for $5 - and these legs are not skimpy! With more room in my freezer, I'd have snatched up a dozen pairs, but having recently received lots of frozen seafood, I limited my purchase to 6 legs.

Well seasoned (a la confit) and slow roasted for 2.5 hours, temp cranked for the final 15 minutes before serving. Over @rancho_gordo's yellow eye beans, cooked simply with mirepoix. Bitter green salad on the side. Pinot noir to drink. Quite satisfying.

Got some fun stuff delivered (see the food pandemic thread).  Part of it was Wellfleet oysters and halibut cheeks!  I've had halibut (maybe twice) but never cheeks.  Wow, they are good.  Almost like crab legs or lobster in how rich they are.  I found a recipe for halibut cheeks with lemon-dill beurre blanc (I don't even know how to pronounce that. 🤣). But I liked it.  I was worried it would break, but I lucked out.   Here's my sauce:

I have one more pack of precious asparagus frozen.  I semi thawed these out, drizzled with olive oil and sea salt and roasted

Halibut cheeks over pasta with the sauce and 4 Wellfleet oysters a piece :)

I'll pass the market by later today and check it out.  Usually I avoid the market like the plague on the weekend because of the crowds, but that kind of price would make it worth it.

Grilled striped bass and halibut that we brought back from Wellfleet, topped with garlic mustard butter.  Sautéed spinach and crispy oven roasted purple potatoes that came in my CSA box this week.

They're there on Saturdays and still had the same price. I picked up 5 packs of 2 and will cook/chill sousvide today!

Stopped by @Alleguede's patisserie yesterday - he's been making any number of different croissant variations and for Thanksgiving he made this
