Ratatoille from the farm stand – 26 July 2018

Maltagliati with chives and bacon; salad – 24 July 2018

For the two of us for dinner, we need something like 2/3 of a recipe of Paul Bertolli’s pasta dough – which is irreducible b/c it has one egg – so I dry the remainder in some useful form. When … Continue reading

Two locally-made sausages; refried potatoes with chives; zucchini; reheated roasted tomatoes with thyme and garlic – 23 July 2018

This dinner was D’s idea – some leftovers, a new zucchino, and two different sausages from recent farmers’ market purchases. I cooked the zucchini in olive oil with salt and pepper, and also reheated the boiled potato chunks in EVOO … Continue reading

Fresh pappardelle with sausage and chicory; zucchini – 22 July 2018

D invented this, after a dish I cook with some low frequency, radicchio with bacon/pancetta, the original from Saveur. It mostly worked really well; the only exception is that we misguessed how to cook the chicory, and it was too … Continue reading

Pappardelle with radicchio and bacon; four-lettuce salad – 9 July 2018

We had a little bit of radicchio to use up – about 2.3 oz, as it turns out, in good shape, all usable but the core – so I decided this pasta would be a good use for it. Amazing … Continue reading

Risotto with taleggio, kale, sweet&sour parsnips, and not enough rice – 8 July 2018

D found parsnips at the farmers’ market awhile back and bought them, thinking to make this risotto (I wrote in the recipe here). We finally got to Cheese Board for taleggio on Thursday, and I bought the kale at the … Continue reading

Oven-roasted baby back ribs; roasted tomatoes; radish greens; marinated red peppers – 7 July 2018

Back on the 2nd, while buying a pork loin roast, I noticed a sign at the meat counter that baby back ribs (pork) were on sale for $3.69/lb, which was $3/lb off the regular price. I’ve never cooked pork ribs, … Continue reading

Breakfast for Dinner: Fried eggs; Country Sage sausage; multigrain toast; pan-cooked tomato; green beans – 1 July 2018

We put off (again) a pork roast of some kind, in part b/c we haven’t settled on what kind that’s going to be, and partly b/c it’s Sunday and going to the Bowl is not optimal on the weekend. So: … Continue reading
