I eat goat in Indian restaurants whenever I see it on the menu (usually Rogan Josh style)…delicious. And yes, I think they’re adorable too.
My best friend’s sister lives in Chicago and she has been working her way through Falastin. I try not to look or read the posts because I do NOT need another cookbook in my house. But I’m also obsessed with these flavors.
Why do I think I will need to have my credit card handy?
oh, good to know! that may have to be the new #covidkitchenproject!
i know, why do delicious animals have to be so CUTE???
My cabbage pad Thai mixup…mixtape? I’m going to look for the right word. I looked at many recipes, and it evolved over a week. It ended up including two kinds of reconstituted dried mushrooms (shitake and chanterelle), green cabbage, wilted a bit with a but if salt, green onions headed for a new life in the garden, bean sprouts with a yesterday use by date, some chicken I roasted for husband, “true Thai” basil from the Aerogarden, and 2 eggs scrambled in the wok that would have added more if I had taken more care with them.
Friday Lunch. An interesting home made Asian Fusion “Dim Sim …DIMSIMTWO107549015_10214613740651859_4808254765976260397_o|700x525
Wow! During lunch? That would be impressive even if you had all day!
In Spain, we eat our MAIN MEAL, lunch from approx. 14.00 - 16.00 …
So we spent all morning preparing this lunch for our 2 visitors (2 grandsons aged 7 & 8) …
Turned out quite exceptional actually …
Have a great weekend Shrinkrap.
It looks exceptional, and I am inspired.
I will do my best! It is crazy hot today. My garden thermometer is saying it can’t compute.
Nice day here. 26 degrees centigrade …
And very breezy …
As an aside, can I assume many in Spain might not be able to have lunch this way ? Or maybe they do. I have loved my travel in Spain, but got the impression that “lunch” was changing, and there was some good and some bad to it. My fantasy is that spending all morning preparing lunch would be “best”. If so, I think I’d love to retire there.
My son lives in Turkey, and it’s different. Different from where he grew up in Nor Cal, which is different from where I grew up in Queens NYC, which is different from where my daughter lives in Queens right now.
All good perspectives brought to us by "the internet ".
Tonight’s Playbill was filled with the usual stars with a few unexpected substitutes: grilled steak tips with Ballymaloe steak sauce, a baked tater, and sauteed spinach with shallots, garlic, and dark soy sauce.
The long-running Broadway favorite of simply grilled steak tips was greeted with much applause, and while there was disappointment in the Russet not being on stage tonight, the convection-baked understudy of a large Yukon Gold performed admirably. The asparagus also decided to take the night off, so spinach stepped in with a last minute’s notice, to much fanfare.
The wine almost never takes a weekend off, and sure enough, it arrived early at 6pm, and was still going strong when the curtain was raised at 8pm.
The Tillamook Waffle Cone Swirl ice cream might make an appearance at curtain call. It’s still in its chilly dressing room deciding whether to come out and wave to its adoring fans.
Break a leg . The show must go on
Nigel Slater’s preserved tomatoes on grilled ciabatta, smeared with soft goat cheese (some with bacon.) Heaven, i could have just had the whole plate of those. But we had a lot of produce, so, big salad of FM curly red leaf lettuce, roasted orange cauli, spring onions, and radishes in a dijon vinaigrette. BF had to augment his dinner with an Italian sausage to ensure he got his daily recommended requirement of meat.
