Using up leftovers – D took the second (of three) leftover pieces of grilled chicken thigh and cut it up, and added to the already-leftover-once rice with onions and herbs (parsley I think). He started by cooking some chopped red … Continue reading

“Poblano quiche”; panzanella – 24 June 2017

We had half a cup of whipping cream to use up, and I suggested this dish – which we call “poblano quiche” despite its lack of a crust – and D thought that would be great. Amidst all the grilling … Continue reading

Sandwich and marinated, roasted red peppers in the concert venue’s parking lot – 6 June 2017

I always forget to photograph dinners that are significantly out of the ordinary. Well, I guess I’ve got an excuse for this one. Arrived after 2 1/2 hours driving what should have been a 70 minute trip, and didn’t really … Continue reading

Random punted dinner after City Arts & Lectures – 17 May 2017

Omelette with mushrooms; broccolini; tarragon potato salad – 14 May 2017

Don’t remember this well (writing the 29th) but I think there was something important D wanted to use up in the omelette. Maybe just the mushrooms. We had more of the broccolini that D had bought from the Grand Lake … Continue reading

Lamb Merlot; semolina with bay; asparagus with aioli – 8 May 2017

We had this odd non-cut of a lamb leg in the freezer, left over from some previous lamb dinner (with R&E) when the requested cut was made in the wrong place. Instead of getting a shortened bone-in leg of lamb … Continue reading

Spaghetti with defrosted fresh tomato sauce with new mushrooms and hard sausage – 5 May 2017

Bitty bit of fresh pasta with tomato/chevre sauce; asparagus with aioli – 3 May 2017

Still using up the Laura Chenel goat cheese we opened. Costco is now selling this in a terrible container – too large, and too vulnerable once opened. Bring back the 11-oz logs! But we make an attempt 🙂 I weighed … Continue reading

Common Grill Black Bean Soup; kale – 7 April 2017

Rainy and cold, so I suggested we make a soup. We had planned on nachos soon, so buying salsa and sour cream worked for both that and this soup. I made the soup, changing only a couple things from the … Continue reading

Cheese sandwich and cranberry-coated bananas at 35000 feet – 1 December 2016

Decided, since I’d been sick, not to indulge in expensive takeout or wine for dinner in the air on this flight home from Mom and brother B’s. I made a nice sandwich with longhorn cheddar on a pugliese that B … Continue reading

Grilled lamb with “Indian spices”; cumin-spiced kabocha squash; naan – 3 November 2016

I discovered that my remaining half of a large kabocha squash was still doing fine in the fridge, so thought about ways to use it. I came up with one, then decided perhaps it needed lamb to go with, then … Continue reading

Two-cheese sandwich; red and green peppers; apple, at 37000 ft – 3 January 2016

I made a pretty decent sandwich for my dinner on the plane home from Mom’s. I toasted a Thomas’s English muffin and buttered it (being reluctant to use mayonnaise for something that would be warm for awhile). I used up … Continue reading

Cannellini and prosciutto salad (aka “speck”); prosciutto-wrapped figs; green beans – 21 June 2015

A 12-picture day! – lots of memorable food, including a Father’s Day treat from R, of course. I have a semi-choreographed ballet of ingredients-to-use-up, of which dinner was a part, but I can never keep all the elements of it … Continue reading
