Lamb merguez from the local butcher with homemade flatbread (it has a little yogurt in the dough) and a tomato-cucumber-green olive salad.

We had leftover olive salad and flatbread dough, so N bought chicken thighs, marinated them in olive oil, lemon juice, oregano, and other herbs, and grilled them and the flatbread.  Fort Point Westfalia (Nurnberg red ale) to drink.

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?

Penne and string beans in pesto.  I didn't love the pesto tasting it plain when I made it the day before.  But a little rest, and then using half of it on the pasta - it came out really good.

Japanese chicken curry - subbed in celeriac for the classic potatoes, and it was very good.

And since it was very hot (and since I tweaked my back), I also subbed in steamed chicken from the scallion chicken I had purchased at Wu's when I picked up some lunch there.  It didn't suffer from being heated up in the curry; actually, the white meat on the bone was perfect for Significant Eater, who has a bit of a problem when she sees blood red chicken near the bone. Me? I prefer the ribs, back, wings, legs, neck, etc. Which you get all of (including the feet) when purchasing a steamed chicken at Wu's.

N loves steak salads, so since it was perfect grilling weather yesterday we had grilled New York strip over arugula with chimichurri, cherry tomatoes, and avocado. Garlic-rubbed sourdough toast on the side, iced green tea with lemongrass & mint to drink.  We'll have the leftovers tonight, with beets subbing for the avocado.

Tamales purchased out of an SUV in Lodi Home Depot parting lot.    Cheese and green chilis, altho pork and chicken were also available.  6/$13.    With fresh corn and peaches from a farm down the road, a nice first night in the country dinner.

May this should go into "things you learn every day" but I never realized that Lodi that far north. I thought it was closer to Bakersfield/Visalia. (I know someone who grew up in Visalia which is the only reason I've heard of it.)
