Grilled, marinated swordfish with red pepper aioli for Easter dinner; Brussels sprouts; mixed rices – 1 April 2018

Resisted the temptation to tell R&E “April Fool” about the promised swordfish. Since the Bowl would be closed on Easter, I asked on Friday if there would be a fish delivery on Saturday, the last purchase day before we wanted … Continue reading

Sandwiches with leftover grilled pork tenderloin; Brussels sprouts – 5 February 2018

My old notes on the grilled pork tenderloin recipe that we made the 3rd say that it’s worth making just for the leftovers, to use in sandwiches. These were really fine sandwiches, but not as obviously fabulous as the notes … Continue reading

Common Grill Black Bean Soup; Brussels sprouts – 30 January 2018

To use up what was about 6.4 oz but should (per the recipe) have been 8 oz of remaining Niman Ranch ham – from a 3/4″ or so thick round slice that was a pound – well, I said I’ll … Continue reading

Spaghetti with three kinds of mushrooms; sauteed pea pods – 8 January 2018

D cooked a perfectly delicious pasta tonight – made it up on the spot. Or actually, he probably thought out bits and pieces previously… He cut up three large white mushrooms into rather thick chunks, and also used the extra … Continue reading

Pizza with walnuts, gorgonzola dolce, and arugula – 6 December 2017

We have a half-pillow of arugula from the Bowl, since R found a pillow and asked us to split. Our half I think was pressed into too small a bag, and is a bit broken up and therefore its lifetime … Continue reading

Hamburger; Brussels sprouts – 9 June 2017

I for some reason wanted a hamburger. Just like the occasional hamburger, I guess. So I decided to leave one of the packets of hamburger from Costco on the 8th in the fridge and we cooked it up tonight. We … Continue reading

Common Grill Black Bean Soup; Brussels sprouts – 12 April 2017

Ham, potatoes, and Brussels sprouts – 20 December 2014

Open faced sandwiches with random stuff; Brussels sprouts – 9 December 2014

Sausages and Grapes; Brussels sprouts – 11 November 2014

Spaghetti with reinvented tomato sauce; Brussels sprouts – 27 March 2014

I am burnt out and don’t want to do any more super-cooking this week, so D suggested I just cook up the fresh tomato sauce he made… not sure when. It’s still good, though. I added water and boiled the … Continue reading

Pizza with potatoes, grilled red pepper, and olive tapenade; Brussels sprouts – 25 March 2014

Definitely a favorite pizza! I used the recipe I wrote up in January to make this pizza, decreasing the topping ingredients slightly b/c I used 1/3 dough instead of 1/2 dough recipe this time. Also boiled up some Brussels sprouts … Continue reading

Fondue Pizza for two; Brussels sprouts – 7 March 2014

I asked D if he wanted to try a Fondue pizza and he said sure, so I made one tonight. Since it’s all cheese, and therefore pretty irredeemable as far as health is concerned, I used 1/3 of a dough, … Continue reading

Spaghetti with sausage and pinto beans; Brussels sprouts – 25 Jan 2014

Chorizo; rices and beans; Brussels sprouts – 23 January 2014
