To me it tastes more like gai lan which I love over broccoli. Though thinner so different texture but if you get to an Asian market i'd give it a go.

 

Broccolini is Japanese but I would not go looking for it in an Asian market.  The name broccolini is trademarked, so the same vegetable may be available under a different name, such as "baby broccoli".

 

It might be my favorite vegetable.  Whatever else, undeniably broccolini is not cauliflower nor kale.

I was suggesting she try gai lan not the broccolini. As usual I talk too much at times and at others don't explain well ;)

Definitely one of my favourites. Not over easy to find around here. As you note, it was developed in Japan and is a hybrid of broccoli and gai lan.

That's good information, thanks Heidih. There is a large Asian and South East Asian population in our township and outlying areas, and we are in a frming belt but it also a long standing meat and potatoes kind of place. A T&T supermarket opened here recently which I hope to visit, but even after two weeks of being open, there are line-ups to get in and guys directing parking. I'm waiting until things calm down.

Wow that is great local enthusiasm. My first gai lan was in a yum cha place in Sydney  - I think just steamed or boiled with an oyster sauce and soy drizzle. Been addicted since.

Cauliflower shawarma.  We decided at dinner that making both rice and flatbread was too much food.  Based at what was left on everyone's plates, next time I will skip the rice.

Lovely plate, as usual. Was this by any chance Melissa Clark's Cauliflower Shawarma with Spicy Tahini, from the New York Times? I've made it several times and we've always been delighted. If not the same, maybe you can point me to what you did? I might like it even better!

I made a batch of dough this morning for baguettes and enough for pizza.
1000g flour, 4g yeast, 27g of salt at 63% hydration.
Dough was given an 8 hour fermentation at room temperature.
Divided the dough into three balls of various sizes for pizza and shaped two baguettes from the remaining dough.
 
Matt likes full size pizzas so one ball was 450g, one for Moe was 250g and the third ball was slightly smaller.
Matt made his Greek Potato Pizza and baked it in the oven at 550°F on the stone.

As an act of LOVE, I made Moe a fresh pineapple and prosciutto pizza.

Not something I will eat, but he actually likes the combination.

And a smaller pepperoni and mushroom pizza for me. Both baked in the Ooni.

The pizza crust was great considering it was a same day dough.

You've got that right! If I made that for anybody that I know, they would throw it at me.

Yes indeed!  We really like it.  I made a large batch of the spicy tahini this time and stuck it in the fridge for future dinners.  My husband did comment that he would especially like it if I would make chicken shawarma to go with it, so I might try that next time.

 

Last night, miso salmon noodle bowl with bok choy, scallions, shiitake mushrooms, oyster mushrooms, and chive flowers.  All the veggies were from this week's CSA box.

The good news is, although he really enjoyed his pineapple pizza, he also had a slice of mine and when asked

which he preferred, the "normal" pizza won out.   Won't be baking any more pineapple pizzas.

That salmon noodle bowl is beautiful!

 

Yes to the cauliflower shawarma recipe being good. It's quite compatible with chicken; I cooked thighs here by doubling the spices and cooking the thighs with the vegetables on a single sheet pan.

 

For those interested, the recipe is also provided by the Seattle Times, not behind a paywall. Here it is!

Yesterday we were treated to Domino's at work.  Sorry, no pictures.

At the risk of having a pie thrown at me, I'm on team Moe. However I'm very fussy about the fruit: it can't be too ripe or too sweet.  And if it's canned fuggetaboutit.

@Katie Meadow, you probably would have liked this one then. It was fresh pineapple, and it wasn't overly ripe or too sweet.

No.  Could only have been an improvement over the bell peppers.  And the Domino's delivery was an hour late.

Nope! I’m a bit jealous! I just bought hotdogs and tend to “pan fry” them with some water but I’m starting to really miss grilled foods!

It depends …

 

Now, if there would be a picture of the progress of your ongoing hot dog hollapalooza (including, but not limited to the appropriate Mai Tai pairings), I would gladly take time to assess both of your burning questions …

I recently found Nathan's natural casing hot dogs - what could be bad?  I also like the hot dogs from Brooklyn Hot Dog Company.

If that makes you a bad person I must be horrid because I am terribly jealous. The hot dogs that we get down here are no texture and no taste. They are terrible. I once saw a package of 8 Hebrew National hot dogs and they were $16. Right now, I would give my first born for a package of good hot dogs. That may sound terrible but you don't know my first born. It would be a great trade.
