Soba salad with lemon/miso dressing, also asparagus, shiitakes, broccoli, spinach, nori and shrimp. Got overheated moving stuff around in preparation for the apartment being painted (and it's about time), so cold food.

Working my way through some Indian recipes from a not very good book - an experiment in seeing what works and what doesn't. The night before last I turned my kitchen into a post-hurricane site with a

Ta. I must give this a try.

Thank you thank you. But doesn't everyone look better wearing a bath mat?

Small BBQ yesterday:

--Grilled boerewors and marinated lamb chops
--Grilled garlic bread
--Assorted grilled vegetables, cut and tossed with some butter lettuce
--Home-canned green beans cooked in a sweet & sour curry sauce
--Shredded carrots with fresh mint (this was a dud for me--too bitter)
--Anchor Steam to drink

No dessert--we were too full and it was too hot, even indoors.

I've been jonesing for ravioli (for some reason), and since I don't make fresh pasts (for some reason), my trip to Formaggio Essex was quite successful yesterday, as they recently started carrying Raffetto's.


Mushroom and cheese ravioli. In a butter/olive oil/ parmesan cream sauce. Now I'm jonesing for meat or cheese ravioli in red sauce.

Raffetto's is good stuff.

Oven-roasted squid on salad, vichyssoise. Soup was too thick and and a little glue-y. I think I used the wrong kind of potatoes, or I over-whisked, or something. Squid was perfect. Salad was also perfect, because it was cut approximately 15:00 before I ate it.

Veal shank braised with maitakes, baby carrots; pappardelle

OOOOOOZY Red Hawk, fresh Bing compost

Vanilla "tarrazzo" (strawberries, cherries, toasted almonds, Meyer lemon peel, mint)

Mrs. P made a delicious black angus burger, topped with blue cheese and caramelized onions, on a bed of arugula, with sides of shishito and mini peppers, as well as four types of radishes. We also had TJ’s sweet potato fries and homemade guacamole with TJ’s blue corn chips. It all went great with an excellent Syrah.

In which I make a half-assed attempt at low-carbing and end up just eating a lot of stuff that isn't bread or pasta. Glazed shiitakes with bok choy. Chilled tomato soup with sour cream, cilantro and pickled coriander seed. Shrimp & egg salad salad (sic).

That's low-carbing!

In honor of Spanish Canadian Unity Day, a holiday I just made up this second, mussels escabeche and poutine with mushroom gravy. FYI, that's a half pound of mussels. LOL mollusks.

First night in the country after, for me, a two month hiatus while manning the scaffolding in town.    Husband has been baching it, adding odd bits to the pantry.    Tonight started off well enough with tomatoes and barrata.  


Then onto a freezer and fridge dive.   Hm ...packaged pre-cooked pork spareribs.   Okay....  And, what the hey? canned potatoes?    Hookay, it's only dinner.    Heated the ribs and fried the pre-sliced potatoes in butter.    Really not bad.   Actually quite good!    Better than crappy "off" market potatoes.  

And to drink, from the back of our country wine rack, where we leave nothing of worth because of the extraordinary temp variations, a sub-ordinaire Cal pinot that amazingly was a rufous joy in the glass with the pork and tates.


Where this came from or why, I haven't a clue but it was a lovely glass.

I don't plan on repeating this dinner but was glad I came.
