Wow. Crab encrusted Cod sounds and looks amazing.
The Strip Steak is extraordinary too and blue rare which is how I prefer.

Have a lovely day ahead.

Wow, are those small zucchini (courgettes) with the blossoms still attached?

What a happy sight. Looks like spring is making progress where you are.

We had more keeping us busy than I thought on Sunday yet I still wanted a dinner that was not leftovers. Store-bought cheese ravioli, fresh spinach (Farmer Dave’s CSA), and shiitake mushrooms did the trick.

I concocted a light creamy sauce with a couple dabs of mascarpone, truffle butter, and a bit of the pasta cooking water.

Easy, and worthy of a Sunday dinner.

Farmer Dave’s “Spring” CSA just started. Eventually I’ll get around to posting about that. Until then, here is a peek at last week’s bounty. Greenhouse spinach, baby greens, and lots of storage veg (interestingly to me, the parsnips are sweetly fragrant).

I’d be good with this box! It’s when the kale started coming in that I and the two others I shared with at work were in major kale-overload. I froze a LOT of mine and only used it in kale-bean-sausage soup.

My salsa puerco from the freezer, BF made Rancho Gordo ayocote morado beans and mexi-rice, and a cheater version of chile relleno - he roasted the pepper, stuffed it with jack, and then fried it. little avo/tomato salad on the side. All tasty stuff.

Indian tonight, using up a bunch of leftovers, and some fresh food to supplement. (Too much as usual - I’ll be freezing the vegetarian stuff again.)

Made today - cauliflower in a tomato-onion-cilantro gravy (some just roasted for the little guy), plain dal for kids, spinach, and a last-minute addition of paneer matar. (Now you wonder - is that not an entire fresh meal? Yes, yes it was.)

Leftovers - lamb with spinach, kali dal, beets.
