Bare minimum cooking tonight.

Lemon-pepper sauteed Gulf shrimp on top of salad greens. I used up some radishes, red bell pepper, red onion, and cukes, with grated carrot, chopped tomatoes, goat cheese and a lemon-tarragon-parsley vinaigrette. Not too bad.

A glass of wine during prep. Ok, a large enough pour that it lasted through dinner as well. :wink:

I’m a little behind in posting so I am sharing linguine with zucchini and mint and sliced red pepper and half an avocado for dinner last Thursday.

Yesterday’s take out lunch was a cheese tray from a nearby restaurant so I had crudites for dinner.

Tonight’s dinner started with a spring roll that I forgot to photograph, a venison pot pie from the pricey butcher and beans from my CSA.

Leftover scallion chicken - with mushrooms and garden peas – in a light cream sauce over pasta.

We enjoyed another outstanding dinner at. Bistro D’Azur in South Orange, NJ including duck 3 ways (duck breast, duck confit salad, foie gras), whole branzino, excellent straciatella salad, fruit de mer, and flourless chocolate cake with coffee ice cream for dessert. We also had an amuse bouche of tuna and avocado. It all went great with an excellent red blend and Brunello di Montalcino.

I make Lamabageen often but not often enough. I cheat and use flour tortillas as the base

We had that Pfaltzcraft pattern growing up :slightly_smiling_face:

Collaborative dinner with friends camping last night. They made burgers and watermelon-feta salad. We topped the patties with chanterelles we all foraged. For our part we brought corn on the cob, s’more stuff, tomatoes and salad. Some stuff not pictured.

And potato salad, oops. Store-bought and deemed “not worth the calories” by me.

Easy dinner of pasta salad and COTC. Roasted some fruit (nectarines and blackberries from the CSA and figs from our tree) and served over ice cream - vanilla and coffee hazelnut that were the remnants of two open pints taking up space in the freezer. The fruit was really the star of the whole meal.
