Welcome @RuthEats!

I was looking forward to seeing this. :slightly_smiling_face:

I think it’s Colatura which is pretty much the Italian version of Fish Sauce except a not as concentrated, salty and pungeant as Asian Fish Sauce.

Yesterday I made creamy Cajun chicken and wild rice soup. I used leftover jerk chicken and made double chicken stock (cooked the carcass in stock made earlier that week). Red bell pepper, onion, celery, and carrots were the veg.

I made Cuban (turkey) picadillo, served over leftover black bean rice and topped with chopped jalapeño, cilantro, and avocado. Cucumbers in orange vinaigrette on the side - the kiddo ate them!!!

You want to hire a couple for handyman-woman chores? Or adopt a pair of mature kids?

Dinner plan was upended for mexican takeout.

I, however, am fed up of (this kind of) mexican takeout. And I had straggling piece of fish marinated that needed to be cooked or thrown.

So I made a quick fish curry. Then I added two leftover shrimp to it too, and boiled two eggs - because egg curry is also delicious.

So fish/egg/shrimp curry over rice was my dinner, with elote from the takeout. Very satisfying, if odd!

I also made a small loaf of sandwich bread last night after dinner - just a few slices left (and another version proving in the fridge).

Sorry about the take out takedown.

A rather mundane Saturday night dinner featuring baked chicken, mashed sweet potatoes, but saved by my Brussels Sprouts with bacon, bourbon, and brown sugar. I’ve cheated with frozen sprouts a lot, but there really is no comparison to fresh for this particular side.

This pic doesn’t do it justice, but a killer Gimlet for a pre-dinner cocktail.

Crab cakes again, as it’s still Dungeness season, and young

asparagus for dinner at sister’s, with a dill/caper sauce. Asparagus were sweet and tender, with just a little butter, lemon, and EBTB.
