    Asparagus with Green Goddess Niman Ranch chop with tiny gnocchi, enriched pan deglaze
  2. That could be. Heretofore, the produce has come from their local dedicated farm.
  3. Not farmers' market but produce from Tusk's farm, now funneled through their wine bar. Today, you read it here, RAMPS in San Francisco

    Supper

    Oranges with red onions, EVOO pressed with blood oranges Corn frittata with ham, fresh chevre, bolted chard buds With splash of green chili sauce With a warm loaf
  5. I think it depends on the work ethos of the office. If management is invasive in staff time, useless meetings,, etc, then working from home may well be more productive.
  6. Now taunted by strewn spruce tips. Where will it lead? Where will it end!

    Supper

    Oh, my, joe...agony! I want it all! Almost no cooking tonight -> mushrooms with (good!) truffle oil Packaged, frozen lobster ravioli, butter sauce Greens with banyuls vinegar, EVOO
  8. After washing iron pans in water, I usually wipe them with an oiled paper towel and finish drying them on very low stove top heat for a minute or two.
  9. Would this work for you?
  10. Extraordinary times call for extraordinary food. Deep fried prawns and "French fries". Not plated, just plattered. Cocktail sauce for prawns, mayo for potatoes. Husband's darker fry Big pan of garlic sauteed greens for balance
  11. Is it absolutely necessary to use fire starter?
  12. Have I vented on how much I hate "smart" appliances? On, off and a dial of choices works just fine foe me.
  13. Granted, we're charter members of "Practicing Paranoids", but we never leave the house with an appliance on. Not a small appliance, not the dishwasher, washer or dryer. I was the one to call the fire department when the dishwasher went south next door. And for the rice cooker with a life of its own on our other side.
  14. With apologies, I am so often reminded of the admonition of a now deceased grand-dame who told me, "Always ask, is the screwing you get worth the screwing you get."
  15. And this is of course what will make of break the return of restaurants. At this point, I don't see the "value added" of a restaurant meal. For us, while quality of food was the criteria for our choice of venue, the interaction with staff contributed enormously to our enjoyment. Chatting up The Lone Ranger seems pretty weird. $200 for a simple meal I could approximate at home cuts it only if charity for the restaurant is your goal.

    Supper

    Niman Ranch pork chop, apples sauted in Calvados, pan deglaze, crushed potatoes
  17. Maybe just water and paper towels for a while until you build up some schmutz. Remember that great-grandma had no detergent, only bar soap, and her frying pans were used for that, frying. The best and fastest seasoning I created was on a dedicated crepe pan. Oiled and heated after every crepe, so essentially a dozen times per use, and never washing in anything but water.
  18. I'll see yours and raise you one. When I dine alone, I put a candle on EACH side of the sink.
  19. Yeah, I loved the Wisconsin guy who quipped re bars opening up this week, "Hey, I really love my fiancé, but we can only take so much of each other."

    I could easily frame this.

    Supper

    Stunning salad and artichoke. Husband had a 6" artichoke for lunch. I had thought it would be shared but it wasn't. Funny because he hated them when we met. Later when I balked at buying them just for me, he quipped, "Go ahead. I'll eat artichokes with you." And today, he demolished the whole megalith.
