A poor mans lobster roll substitute.  Butter poached royal reds served with potato salad.  The potatoes were cooked in crab boil and the eggs were brined in Bubbie's pickle juice.

Interesting. I had to google Bubbie‘s, but it seems it is „just“ a lacto-fermented pickle. We have plenty of those here, so you just take the leftover brine and pickle the boiled eggs in it ? For how long ?

 

P.S.: Hardly a „poor man‘s“ substitute 🤗 - I‘d take those in a heartbeat

@Duvel We usually leave them in the brine for two or three days before eating but sometimes as long as two weeks.  Royal reds are $8/lb for 10/12 count headless shrimp so you can stack 'em high on the bun!

So are those wild caught? My best tasty deal out here is Argentinian wild red frozen at $10/lb

Pizza at work yesterday, white pizza with spinach and tomatoes. Could have used a bit more garlic, but tasty.

Yeah. I'm fine too. I am convinced 99% of trad Chinese medicine is total nonsense. But I enjoyed my soup. Twice!

I may have to add a half hour to my nap after finishing off this one. Grilled luganeca sausage topped with aged gouda and mozzarella cheese.  Dressed with roasted red peppers, onions and lettuce.  Served on overnight white bread.

All generally tasty fried with a really light batter like rice flour or cornstarch. Brings out the tastes. The kids were particularly fond of oregano flowers. Just leave some for the bees ;))

As I await the Sunday lunchtime feast that @BonVivant often shares with us, I have a question about the lucky souls who share these bountiful meals.  There always seem to be enough for quite a crowd. Friends?  Family?  Do you cater meals professionally? And most importantly, how do I get invited? 😉

It's been hot and getting much hotter starting tomorrow. Chilled romanesco soup with pan-roasted tomatoes.

The heat and glorious sun reminds me of Greece so Cretan-style toast is on the lunch menu.

Brought back from Cretan capital. Very nice cheese. Cheese specialist said this is the cheese for dakos.

Grated tomatoes for the toast. I even used Cretan olive oil.

My elaborate lunches are mostly at weekends and I eat them a bit later. On such days I usually forgo dinner (or "dinner" is just wine or beer).

 

Thanks!

That romanesco shot is indeed awesome, and I agree on thanking and supporting our pollinators. Food looks dang good too.
