We had an excellent dinner at Sayola Restaurant in Montclair, NJ, an upscale Spanish restaurant. This was our first time dining here but definitely not our last. The restaurant is gorgeous and the service was exmplary. We have to find a way to work this into our regular dining rotation. Below is a link to the details and pictures.
What's for Dinner #43 - 03/2019 - the SMarch Edition
Random snacky plate for dinner last night, should have had red bell pepper here too but it wasn’t good enough to have raw (will end up in a green juice soon)
Smoked tofu, cucumber, tortilla chips and hummus. Yeah, a lot more chips than pictured were consumed. Also, I’m still very burnt out on hummus, wasn’t into this at all.
And more than a few cornichons
Today was finally spring! And sunshine!! Lots of biking today, and a stop for a late afternoon smoothie for the first time in forever (I can’t handle cold things when it’s also cold outside)
Randomly found a new (affordable) mayo brand and decided i wanted potato salad. Bought the center original one (surprised it’s quite good) and just did a mini batch of potato salad with a splash of the cornichon brine, deli mustard, chopped cornichon, salt, and the mayo with a few red potatoes.
Tasted like summer!!
Not pictured side of more cornichons, cucumber and smoked tofu
Obviously, Spring has not sprung here in the upper Midwest! An inch of freezing snow on the ground prompted me to make another soup to end a dismal month. So, here’s our Cabbage Soup, with rice cakes, button mushrooms, and stubby carrots for dinner tonight. BTW…the Detroit Tigers open their MLB season at home Thursday. Football weather!
Here’s pics of the soup:
Taxes for 2018 done but not yet submitted because I’m hoping that I’ve screwed up somehow with TurboTax. But I’m sure I’ve hit all I can for my taxes. Let’s just say I’m not a fan of “tax reform” when I lose almost half of the expected refund because of no personal exemption. I am NOT pleased.
Dinner was a final winter comfort food: Mom’s Lemon Pot Roast, boiled potatoes and carrots.
Actually, we’re all losers. Congress has abandoned doing right by this citizenry.
We had an excellent dinner at Boulevard 572 in Kenilworth, NJ. Below is the link to the details and pictures.
Shrimp and snow pea stir-fry after an indulgence out
Chilly rainy day- unfortunately total opposite of yesterday.
I went with some freezer cabbage yellow curry, topped with a cilantro pile and some sliced radishes for some crunch. The rest of the bunch of radishes i just had on the side with a little spiced salt
Chops from our farmers’ market were marinated in greek yogurt, brown sugar, salt, garlic, and smoked paprika all night, then rubbed with a mix of bourbon sugar, habanero sugar, smoked bourbon paprika, granulated garlic, s&p. Turned out super tender and juicy. Unpeeled red skinned potatoes were boiled with bay leaves, then mashed with 1/2 & 1/2, cambozola, and melted butter. The bay leaf flavor was subtle but really delicious. BF made the salad.
and my morning activities: Goat yoga! (yes, it’s a thing, and ours was the first in CA. i worked it, not participated.)
that goat is literally giving you the side eye about the goat yoga situation!!
Please tell me the goats are…pets? Part of a rescue program?? (Not destined for someone’s goat curry??!)
I volunteer at CityGrazing, a non-profit “land management” organization. the goats get hired out to munch grass and brush, get rid of invasive vegetation, etc. they’re green!
we actually have goats that have been donated that were slated to become someone’s WFD!
Smart goat learning yoga ." I’m never going to be roasted. "
Here’s the April '19 thread:
That’s just terrific!
A post was merged into an existing topic: What’s for Dinner #44 - 04/2019 - the April Flowers but no Showers Edition
K that’s officially the BEST answer possible!!
I love that you support such a great organization :))
“Goat yoga! (yes, it’s a thing, and ours was the first in CA. i worked it, not participated.)”
We were WONDERING about that mention from Captain Obvious! And if you were referring to the first picture or the last.
Here are the shenanigans. Parking here so I might find it again. As in tonight…and tommorow. And maybe Friday.
My hubby tried this. It was much better than a previous attempt to just straight smoke a rubbed brisket, which we had gotten from Aldi and was pretty crappy quality (solution-injected?). That previous one had to come out both dry and extremely salty. Sous vide plus smoking worked out well.
