Chorizo/beef, red onion, cilantro patty with aji verde. Farmer’s market cotc and a salad of mixed greens, radish, avocado, snap peas, green onion, creamy Greek dressing. Lambrusco.
Figs with sour cream, balsamic syrup and pistachios. Oh I should have put some maple syrup in my balsamic.
I never saw the sun today, smoke and fog. Aka smog.
Those pork tenderloins are so finicky
From done to overdone in a matter of seconds. I’ve done it more than once . I still have one in the freezer .
I hope everyone is safe and your power comes on soon.
Out with friends at Dali tonight. It’s been too long!
We had Croquetas de Jamón (ham and Manchego cheese croquettes) with tomato jam (these were SOFAKING GOOD!
Garlic Shrimp (sizzling video won’t upload)
A small Paella del Océano
and Churros and Licor 43 for dessert. (Toasting video of the Licor 43 won’t upload)
There was Sangria. Obvi.
Pacific power updated. Tomorrow at 6 pm . Maybe. Happy Labor day weekend. I have it covered. Thank you Linda. All this outdoor cooking for the last two months. Has prepared me .I just need more wine. I’ll get that tomorrow.
Hakka-ish umami-ish noodles for dinner.
Wanted to avoid anything fermented because I’m trying to cut back on histamine triggers after a slight allergic reaction a couple of days ago, so no soy, no oyster sauce, no miso, and so on.
Lots of garlic and ginger, mushrooms, cabbage, sesame oil, and chicken bouillon. Oh and angel hair pasta because I had a package open (and I love it).
Pretty good, given everything that wasn’t in them!
Grapefruit and white chocolate cake for dessert.
That’s just awful. Hope they can get it under control soon, and that they could save everyone in the zone.
As of the moment. 2580 acres. Zero containment. Fuck.
worked late tonight, came home to BF’s snacky dinner - so many good things, including those Nigel Slaterish tomatoes, and some terrine de campagne au cognac a friend brought me from Paree. leave for Amsterdam on Tues., but now I’m officially on vacation for the next 10 days! wheeeee!
i was scrolling from the bottom up and i knew even before i saw the name this was Mr. Happy…
Quick fish stew with kohlrabi, asparagus, shrimp and peas cooked in a sauce made from coconut milk, garlic, ginger and lime juice. Cod was pan-fried separately and added at the very end. Served over rice.
Been following the Mill and Mountain fires on Twitter and via the WatchDuty app; sure seems like Siskiyou Co. gets more than their fare share of these blazes (much like Butte). Stay safe, please.
I’ll be stocking up again today as well. Always good to lay in a supply.
This is my mother’s recipe, she called it “American Goulash”. I’m not sure if that is the correct term or not. I’ve tweaked her recipe a bit by adding “Chamoy” hot sauce.
Enjoy! And please report your finds!
emglow, please continue to update. CaFire reporting and mapping is frustrating,
This real time aircraft reporting is our country go-to.
Hope your wine stock is replenished. As is charcoal and water. All good thoughts.
The power just came on 20 minutes ago . Fire is burning. 20 percent containment. Around 4 thousand acres .Sad
Last night we had a chicken and penne gratin. Pure comforting indulgence.
We’ll be in Boston in two weeks. Have to make sure we get to Dali!
Im glad your power is back. Hopefully they can continue to increase the containment and put it out completely very soon.
