Does daikon crisp well? 

 

Not like a french fry but I give them a coating of flour first that gives some crispiness.

Stink bug (now departed) on my neck at dinner not withstanding.

perhaps the stink bug was a cilantro note to replace the bay leaf

Lamb sirloin chops with rosemary/garlic paste rub, baked potato with sour cream/chopped green onion and bacon bits and fennel in an orange sauce from Geljina.  This is really delicious.  Seems a bit out of focus....my little camera is failing.

A BBQ dinner tonight at a place called Pie Alley in Yeppoon. Supposed to be New Orleans style food in a Whiskey & Blues Bar. Set in a literal Alley. 

There was a brilliant live singer but it wasn't Blues. There was not that great a Whiskey selection and I have never been to New Orleans but I didn't see any Gumbo or Jambalaya on the menu ... so not sure if very authentic. BUT the food we did have was Very Very Very good. 

Pretty sure my hub would have prefered to take more loaded "fries" home over me 😂

 

Obligatory kids nugs & chips

More “linner” than dinner ... grazing through La Boqueria, the main market in Barcelona.

I skipped the tempting ham shop as I have quite some good stuff at home 😉

 

First stop: salted cod fritters - so fresh, so good ...

Then ... some freshly shucked oysters:

... aaand a couple of pristine sea urchins, just opened. My wife had to drag me away from there !

My son was not to enthusiastic, so we had to get something “real” for him. He wanted octopus, therefore ...

I prefer with some spicy paprika ...

Next came fried baby squid (“chipirones”) ...

And some razor clams, for good measure!

Got some mushrooms & snails for the family dinners on the upcoming weekend ...

Finally, a strawberry cheesecake icecream and everyone was happy !

Next: a bit of sports 🙄

You should!  It is worth the effort.  I recall @Chris Hennes has made it too.  I don't have the stamina to make lasagne al forno more than once a year.

 

I'd also like to try Bugialli's lasagne all'anitra all'aretina, duck flavored lasagne from Arezzo.  Sort of like neko nabe the duck is discarded or reserved for another use.

For lasagne al forno, not that I could find.  Maybe Chris knows one.

 

The NY Times has an article on Neapolitan lasagna for carnival.  The author explores options "but in the end I decided to tackle the toughest one possible, Giuliano Bugialli's."  Though she used instant noodles.  I could not make this up.  Anyhow very different from lasagne al forno.

 

However I did find the recipe for lasagne all'anitra all'aretina on line if you want to try it and report back:

I have always used Marcella Hazan's lasagna recipe.   With either spinach or plain pasta sheets.    Back in the '80s, this was a frequent party dish.

Watched the Food Network while at the gym today and decided to make a simple recipe that Michael Symon demonstrated. Baked cod shakshuka style. I made it with scrod, doubled the red bell pepper, and tweaked the spices a little. It was very easy and tasty, served with riced cauliflower since I am trying to reduce carbs this month. I would make it again.

OMG!  Michael Symon makes me want to throw up.  His incessant cackling is intolerable.

IMO, he is an idiot.  Not saying he can’t cook, just that I can’t watch him.

My stomach is blown out from all of the rich holiday foods, and my husband had to fly a red eye to London tonight, so I went simple and vegetarian with soups.  I made two kinds as different folks like different things.  Both are from the cookbook Half Baked Harvest Super Simple.  Butternut squash with pumpkin seeds and sage. I accidentally focused more on the bowl than the soup with my camera, I think because I have not used these bowls in a while and I like them.

Not shown because I forgot to take a picture, but I made popovers to go with the soups. There was also a salad.

I have always loved those bowls.

 

Soups look good, too. I'm making Brunswick stew tomorrow.

Yes, that's my go-to lasagne recipe, though like you I only make it about once per year. I love his suggestion of layering alternating spinach and plain noodles, the slices are striking:

Eat Your Books tells me I have seventeen Bugialli lasagne recipes in my collection.  No two seem alike.  Tonight's dinner is lasagne al forno.

@Margaret Pilgrim I do find that mustard pairs so well with cruciferous veggies like the b-sprouts. Looks really appealing.

Last night of the Jollies. Many a leftover shoved in a Doggy Box. 

Chicken Parmy (Aussie tradition is to judge an establishment by its Parmy - or so my hubster tells me when he orders one 75% of the time and I accuse him of being boring).

Kid had a Cheeseburger 

20200105_185346.thumb.jpg.0ed621a7dfe2d8cf5f61c7d231126842.jpg

 

I tried a 'Rueben' - again not sure if truly a Rueben as had brisket and pastrami but was yummy and huge.

Jalepeno Poppers to Sample

This was a diff restaurant to the other night but a few in the area seem to be trying to do things 'American'. 

We even saw a Carls Jr in nearby Rocky.
