Garlic simmered in olive oil and butter, thin sliced leek, a little parsley... add some cooking sherry, add the clams, the shrimp just as the clams steam open. A little salt, maybe a little extra butter... over steaming pasta. Cures what ails you on a winter day. And the Aftermath.
Did I not say I wouldn't put another flatbread up here? Well, the pizza dough called to me in the market yesterday, I rolled it out flat (with the help of my six year old, who exponentially multiplied the time and mess), did the ol' 'smokin' cast iron/roasting pan sealed to the broiler' trick and got some of them to puff. Three pics: fresh from the oven, eclipsing wife, and with cold leftover salmon and extra blackening spice.
Onion roll from Kupel's. I mean, just look at how packed that thing is. I almost added insult to injury by getting one from the local Stop and Shop. They took a big hit when the Market Basket opened down the street. Their onion rolls are anemic by comparison. Like they wave an onion over it or something.
Well, I didn't, and neither did my kids. My wife got them at Target (apples from Target? please...), so I baked them before they could get moldy, ran it over a vegetable grater, added some cinnamon and voila, applesauce.
Vegan Spring Rolls. Shredded lettuce, carrot, scallion, Vietnamese Basil, and bean thread simmered with vegetarian boullion for salt and umame. Two dipping sauces: mustard dill, and peanut/sweet chili pepper/fish sauce blend. All yummy.
Wheatberries boiled soft, diced tomato, minced garlic and purple onion, a bunch of shredded parsley, and a dressing of salt, pepper, lemon juice, and olive oil. Taste of the mideast in my kitchen. Good with hot sauce or diced chilis.
I just swapped out my old bottle of sri racha for a new one. I'm going to see how long it takes this time. I want to think I go through one a month because I'm such a tough guy, but it probably lasted six months. New bottle cutting its teeth on hard boiled eggs this morning.
