@Kim Shook and @patti, I commend this one to you, from Mr. B's Bistro. The grits are over-the-top rich, and that's no more red-eye gravy than I'm a spaceship, but they're damn fine and a regular when I go to NOLA. (I have cut back the cream, etc., in the grits, and they're still wonderful.)

I didn't get home from work until after 6:30. 
This dinner was quick and easy. 
Crappy photo, but it tasted much better than it looks.

I haven't had Turley in years... I don't think we have any more left...

 

We still have quite a bit.  My husband was in their wine club for years. He finally left because we had so much in the cellar.  The shape of the bottle makes them a bit of a pain to store.

My husband boiled crawfish. They were worlds apart from the last boiled crawfish we picked up to go, which were ridiculously over salted. These were *chef’s kiss*!

 

We have lots of leftovers, so you might see lots of crawfish dishes coming up. But I’m also happy with cold boiled crawfish. 225B8128-7894-44A9-BD31-6436AD25ED4A.thumb.jpeg.5e3bf9f52a658cc9640265979227d28c.jpeg

Tonight

 

Lemon and Chive Risotto from Food Network with Gianda: https://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/giada-de-laurentiis/lemon-and-chive-risotto-5592292

 

20210402_175734.thumb.jpg.8495dfa69d502760d5494e44c9c6af39.jpg

 

Same episode as the sole - which we actually made for lunch today (though since I posted it last weekend I did not take pictures again)

 

It's very good risotto, I modified the recipe method to use a pressure cooker ala the method in Modernist Cuisine at Home.   So we didn't make 5 cups of the lemon stock but more like enough for 2-3 times.

Three hour sweet potato, eight minute Berkshire chop, thirty second green beans (not shown).  The pork and sweet potato were as good as ere I’ve had.  The green beans were, as my younger son might say, grody.  I ate them anyway.

Friday night is steak and potato night, but I'm running out of interesting potato recipes.

 

I also apparently need a way to crowbar more carbs into my diet.

 

So, what's better than carbs on carbs?

Carbs in carbs!

 

This potato pie is loosely based on the Tourte Bourbonnaise, and is essentially shortcrust pastry, potatoes and a shallot and sage butter. It's 16cm across and would probably feed 3, or a hungry 2.

I got a lovely Hudson Valley Fisheries steelhead trout filet from Cervo's. Cured and smoked in the gin donabe.

 

Don't you just hate it when someone does this?

Quality control before making 15,000,000 of them.  It was good, and can't wait to have the leftovers, on toasted rye, for breakfast.

You could ship some of those leftovers up to us - they'd last about 10 minutes!!! Drool...

I scored six big bell peppers (red, orange, yellow) on sale for $.50 each the other day at WinCo.

Last night I made stuffed peppers, a CI recipe, in the crockpot.  Wonderful.

Arborio rice, crushed tomato, Italian sausage, etc.  So good.

@kayb – thank you for the link to the recipe.  It sounds wonderful and I’m looking forward to trying.  You’re right, of course, without coffee it really isn’t red-eye gravy.  But since I detest coffee in any form, it will probably work out well for me.  I will even forgive the recipe writer for this spelling:  marscapone cheese 😄

 

Thursday night we picked up dinner from a favorite local middle eastern place:

Gyros and falafel. 

 

Last night was dyeing Easter eggs.  Jessica picked up some Publix chicken and macaroni salad and I made green beans, cheddar grits, and some freezer biscuits:

Dinner tonight was a photographic failure, but tasted fine.

 

Steak and kidney (minus pie) with onions, carrots and rehydrated dried shiitake mushrooms cooked in the 'shroom soaking liquid with some 'Wooster sauce' and lots of black pepper. Potatoes added to the same pot after some time.

To compound the felony of the bad presentation and ill-lit photograph, I totally forgot to photograph the much prettier stir-fried cabbage and chilli which accompanied it.

I love the idea of such a UK type dish such as steak/kidney pie served with something so SE Asian - stir fried cabbage with chilli.  How did it go together?

Fine.

As a kid, I often ate steak and kidney pie with a side of cabbage, so I thought I'd just spice it up a bit. I often mix UK/Western dishes with more Asian elements. They don't always work, but this one was fine.
