Okra, broiled from above and then baked at the bottom of a 450°F oven. Mrs. C, who does not like slimy okra, approved of its crunch. 🙂

Bavette steak with leftover green sauce from the Peruvian grilled chicken.  With it I served pasta with asparagus, loosely inspired by @blue_dolphin's suggestion to make Pasta alla Gricia with Slivered Sugar Snap Peas in the Farmers Market thread. I cooked some locally made lemon parsley pasta (from last year's Farmers Market), and threw in the asparagus at the end to cook it briefly. Drained then mixed it all together  butter, parmesan, a bit of pasta cooking water, and a lot of black pepper.  We liked and it's something I'd do again, especially with a pasta like this that has its own thing going on.

How often could one say this about pasta? I love pasta, but this sounds especially special. I want some!!

 

Thanks for the reminder that not all pastas are created equal.

@Smithy My parents bought some of this company’s pasta at the farmers market when they were visiting a few years ago and now order it online. I went to look it up and found out they’re not local after all - just “Western!”  But here you go if you want to order.  https://pappardellespasta.com/collections/all-product-categories

 

Some of our repeats are the lemon-pepper (both this shape and pappardelle), the Calabrian chile and honey pappardelle, the gourmet five blend, and the southwestern blend.

Larb and drunken noodles.  Tried konjac noodles for the first time.  Didn't care for them with spaghetti sauce but they are pretty good as a sub for rice noodles.

Dinner was leftovers from a late lunch on Saturday.  My wife is very involved in animal rescue and I prepared a big spread for the TNR gang.   The mezze's included roasted beets and carrots with whipped citrus goat cheese, marinated roast peppers and eggplant (Escalivada), grilled zucchini , sautéed shrimp with feta,  smoked eggplant dip (Mutabal) with toasted pita and bread. I was so busy with prep and serving that I didn't take a single picture.   

 

IMG_20240513_192547006_HDR-EDIT2.thumb.jpg.bf98aa9d73a4c3f1da162426f9f1e52f.jpg

 

Dessert was white chocolate cheescake.  This slice is heading over to the next door neighbor.

The main course on Saturday was my take on Salmon Rockefeller as served at the former Madison's Restaurant.  This photo was from dinner a few years ago but the plating was identical.  My blender hollandaise was definitely not as good this time as it was a little thin.

Shrimp with a blended sauce of guajillo and chipotle chiles, roasted garlic, roasted tomatillos, chicken stock, crushed tomato, black pepper, and Mexican oregano. Chiles were toasted, soaked, blended, and strained, and the sauce was fried and then simmered.

Chayote al mojo de ajo - with toasted garlic and lime juice. This was really good mixed in with the shrimp and sauce.

Egyptian inspired dish with oven/broiler roasted eggplants and chickpeas which get mixed with a sauce/vinaigrette made with harissa, cider vinegar, ground cumin and coriander, honey, fresh mint and dill - simple but very tasty

As the proud Mother's Day Roast enters her last stages of life, she submits to the rule of Soy Sauce and Day old rice. Surrounded by old vegetables we witness the end of a Rib Roast.

A little bit of schlepping yesterday brought me close to the 120-year old Raffetto's:

 

IMG_2078.thumb.jpeg.76761f157a8d43923bd3102027a523fe.jpeg

 

Where I bought two types of ravioli; classic cheese and a box of the wild mushroom. Each box of 48 pieces is under $10. So I made a nice marinara sauce (and have a good quart or more left over) using a couple of big cans of Bianco DiNapoli tomatoes, butter, olive oil, onion, carrot, celery and garlic.  Endive alla Romana accompanied.

I bought two small 7lb turkeys just after Christmas and still had one left.
RoastTurkeyMay14th2024.thumb.jpg.0d901116b9758afa17687f7df101b1ea.jpg
So pulled it out of the freezer Monday and roasted it yesterday morning. 
RoastTurkeyMay14th20242.thumb.jpg.5c9dc1f33071a92cbd92e3b6446b0d8c.jpg
 
We had hot turkey sandwiches with homemade fries and peas.
 
And lots of rich turkey gravy.
RoastTurkeyGravyMay14th20243.thumb.jpg.98d413e96d191fc581c58d76c457a493.jpg
 
This little turkey netted 4 cups of gravy.
The carcass and the legs went into the stock pot last night.
Will make soup later today.

I had never heard of Salmon Rockefeller. 

 

looks very interesting  

 

do you plate yours over mashed potatoes ?

I think the dish was a restaurant original.   I use gruyere cheese grits as the base.

Pan grilled strip loin, mushrooms in green peppercorn gravy, loaded perogies made by a friend: bacon, onion, cheese, taters, dill

Salted, tucked with fresh thyme, and roasted chicken. Fresh asparagus from a Hutterite colony. Love that they cut just the top 4 - 5 inches. Maybe they keep the rest of the stalk for themselves. $4.00 / lb, and they were amazing!
