Pork schnitzel, white gravy, "zucchini butter", something joe and I differ on, my equivalent of his green beans.  And of course a shower of scallions on the Yukons cause I love them.

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?

Another unusual salad, with burrata and crisp oyster mushrooms.


And redfish with sage brown butter. Trying like hell to leave fish alone until it's ready, and I almost succeeded!

That's very nice of you to say! The blessings of a small kitchen. I can reach most everything without moving much. And I have a very interesting way of picking up stuff I drop - let's call it "drinking bird."

The RG recipe for black caviar lentils with bacon, morels, and cabbage.  We'll be eating this for a while. 10 Barrel Brewing's Crush (apricot sour) to drink; ice cream for dessert.

A couple of simple dinners, made easy by access to good products...


Raffetto's has been making good pasta products for over 100 years. 48 Ravioli for under $10 can't be beat.


They take probably under 5 minutes before they're ready.


I make a little roasted tomato sauce with onions, and a fresh vegetable alongside. 

Yesterday, I took a ride out to see these guys again...




I bought 1/2 lb. of pork and 1/2 lb. of chicken. They give you more like 1.5 lbs. of each, so it's a lot cheaper than it appears. Made some rice, did a stir-fry of broccoli and carrots with lots of ginger, heated up some of the pork and chicken (there's plenty left for dinner tonight!); dinner in 30 minutes. It's getting hot!

I loved getting fresh spaghetti, linguini, etc. from Raffetto's.  Sigh....

Yeah, I went thru a phase where I was making pastas - enough of that, though!

Half-pounder burger last night. I cannot cook a burger without setting off the smoke alarm, but I have discovered that bothering the alarm briskly with a broom reduces the time it sounds.

I swear my first New York apartment had a fire alarm that boiling water would set off.

Tonight, the rest of the ground beef in sloppy tacos. So I need some cilantro, so I need an ATM, I can’t run a card to buy a single bunch of cilantro.

Oh, diced ramps in the beef, which leaves my very last ramp bulbs for the roast partridge tomorrow or Sunday.

small h's international salad bar buffet (avert your eyes, buffet-haters!)

Kimchi tuna salad. This preparation would not have occurred to me, but it's pretty good!


Finnish mushroom salad. Also good! But mushrooms in sour cream, I mean, you can't go wrong.


Celtuce leaf oshitashi. The lone clunker. I tasted this several times during prep, and it seemed fine, but the finished product was very bitter. Probably there are a few bitter leaves in there, ruining it for everybody else.


Caprese salad with burrata from Formaggio Essex. Not the greatest burrata, to be honest. Not the worst either, but I'd like to find something better. I wonder if Di Palo's stocks it.

Roast partridge, braised Chinese radishes. Basted the bird with olive oil but it was never going to turn brown without being over cooked. I think braising or stewing is best for this bird.
