This can be problematic.   We stayed at a chambre d'hote in Brittany where there was a resident "cat in charge".     At dinner, with a French couple, the cat chose my lap and settled in to shmooze during the meal.    The French guest was quite huffy that she wasn't chosen and kept chatting up the cat until it finally decided to check her out.    Cat competition, who knew?

I was expecting to have fish for dinner last night, but my fish share delivery was cancelled because the fishing crew was sick.  Supposedly it is now coming tomorrow (fingers crossed).  So, dinner was mostly pulled out of the pantry: paneer butter masala, maharajah rice and some freshly baked naan.

Potato Soup with Bacon and Green Onion

 

 

I am not normally a big fan of potato soup, but that looks wonderful to me tonight!

Made my fishing dream come true! The partner and I caught 3 big yellowtail in Loreto. Each weighs about 10kg.

Took half of one fish to a restaurant nearby and got it cooked. We shared the meal with the guest house owners. The four of us couldn't even finish it all, it was really a lot.

Do not miss the ex but do miss the fish from the corporate Mexico fishing trips. Thanks for the lovely images.

Yup, I did fry them ... but that doesn’t mean I ate them 😉


I peeled them like asparagus and except for one they were too tough and stringy. The stems, that is. Rest was great !

A friend mentioned baked ham and scalloped potatoes, so I had to make that our supper as well.

The potato dish was called Prairie Scalloped Potatoes, and I don't know why! Didn't have Dijon mustard so I used the whole grain variety.  Beets were expensive! 3 beets for $3.98, but hubby likes them so good for a change.

The ham was a "shank". Having trimmed off the fat, it made the ham drier than I like. Thank goodness for the pineapple!

Romanian style bean stew with caramelized onions in sweet and smoked paprika.

Balmos (a sort of cheesy mamaliga).

And sour cream, of course.

Pizza02192020.png

 

Pizza tonight.  Mushroom pizza.  Perhaps my finest pizza to date, due largely to the exceptional dough left over from last night's bread.  This was not a 90 second pizza.  I let it go two minutes to get the mushrooms fully cooked and slightly charred.  Notice none ended up on the oven floor.  Basil from the dining room.

 

Good as it was I could only eat half before the Duvel ran out.  Sometimes life is hard.

 

 

 

 

@JoNorvelleWalker,  It is all about the crust for me and your pizza looks perfect.

@shain, both dishes look delicious! Could you please provide a recipe for Balmos, plus an explanation of what makes the bean dish Romanian? Thanks in advance.

Do you favor a particular brand or type of caper. My grouper jealousy knows no words.
