 I'm launching a campaign to have green onions treated as a full vegetable rather then just a garnish.

 

On my Croatian side big platter of grilled green onions  necessity and also raw whole  to munch.

Back from a week on the road, catching up on this thread. Absolutely gorgeous meals, y'all. @Objective Foodie, I too would like that recipe/technique for pickled fennel, should you wish to share it.

Looks good - did it have that “special” ingredient ?

Not generally considered a flavor enhancer - more experiential

Purple carrots were cooked together with the octopus (on purpose). Like beetroots, purple carrots stain everything.

I love fresh caught halibut and I do like both the broad bean paste and fermented black beans but would hesitate them together fearing a poor relationship. Worked I guess. I am always in need of mind expanding :)

Definitely not, though it could have if I wanted it to.  MJ is legal for recreational use in my state.  You can even grow a limited amount of plants on your property.  It's not of interest to me at this time, though I am appreciative of the medical and emotional relief it can give to those so inclined.

 

Tonight, beef tenderloin topped with the last of the garlic scape butter from last spring (for the guys, I have not eaten red meat in over 30 years, and my sister gave it up about two years ago), macomber turnips pureed with milk and topped with crispy shallots, the last of the purple carrots from my CSA (thank goodness, those buggers stain my hands), Lighthouse Inn potatoes and standard peas.

And the wine pairing (excuse purple fingers from evil carrots)

I’m afraid my cooking expertise with the special ingredient has been limited to the highest possible expertise in butter infusion, deep layers in brownies.

 

I don’t like it. I have tried to cultivate a clear mind.  But it helps a good deal.

I presalted a little Sterling Silver Top Sirloin roast Saturday morning so it would be ready to roast when I got home from work tonight.
 
Turned the oven on to preheat at 5:30 (500°F) and we were eating just before 7:00.

The roast rested while the Yorkshires baked.

A couple of simple dinners as we complete a birthday week.  

 

Here's the lasagna, mentioned previously and picked up from I Sodi, and the asparagus beurre moussant:

 

IMG_3787.thumb.jpeg.76585c70060a9beb0811c94932c7eac7.jpeg

 

There was a smallish (2.2 lbs. about) Joyce Farms poulet rouge needing heat. As it's getting warmer, didn't feel like turning on the big oven, so back to the steam girl...

 

IMG_3796.thumb.jpeg.db215073424741d3d4585e8a9cdb90b4.jpeg

 

Nice crispy skin and tasty.

 

And finally...

My wife wanted Pizza - so she made the dough on Friday.  And then we made the pizza on Sunday:

 

The entire pie:

Once at the table we had fresh basil (from her office window) to add:

My 7 year old currently makes plans where to go for trips after all that Corona stuff is finally over. First thing will be to Japan, of course. But my wife told him she wants to visit NYC ... and he was wondering what kind of food they have over there ... I know where to bring him 🤗

Veal cutlets and tomato-edamame salad with burrata ... wish I could show  you a nicely plated picture (or a complete one at that) but family was obviously hungry. When I returned from getting my beer, half of the dinner was inhaled ...

We are sorry for the delay! It's a simple recipe for a quick pickle, based on a recipe from J. Weissman.

Ingredients:

1 cucumber

1 fennel with its leaves

360g apple cider vinegar

180g water

15g salt

15g white sugar

Optional: dill, garlic

 

Method:

Cut the cucumber into 1cm slices. Cut the fennel on a mandolin (2-3mm slices). Combine both in a jar. Bring to boil the vinegar and water. Dissolve the salt and sugar in the liquids. Pour the liquid over the vegetables. Cover and cool down. Ready to eat in 2-3h. It can be stored in the fridge for weeks.
