Long time no posting - Last week we at at Los Cuates   (http://www.loscuatesrestaurant.com/) on King Street in Old Town. 

We have been on very restricted doctor controlled diet January - last week and thus not eating out except a few steak places and stayed off the board as it was just to tempting - Diet (Ideal Protein) was a success we lost 87 pounds between the two of us and more important my blood sugar numbers are normal.  

 

But once done we had to choose where to eat - and I knew that Mexican food was going to win out as the idea of cheese and carbs combined was the thing I missed the most -  I had the Seafood Burrito Veracruz and he had steak tacos, we split a guacamole  it was wonderful - even on Cinco de Mayo we only had a 15 minute wait cause they were being great about extra staff and getting food to table quickly.

Baked ziti was last night's featured presentation.  I thought about a salad, but found that my lettuce had frozen :angry: .  There was spinach in the ziti, though, for a green vegetable.

We made these veal roulades of a sort.

 

Roll some pounded out veal that has been lined with thin prosciutto and a nice nubbin of fresh mozzarella (and pepper), up like a crescent roll. Pinch the ends shut with toothpicks. Then take two skewers and jam the roll on to it and move it down. Take some 1/4 inch or less pancetta half rounds and jam them on the skewers next. Then repeat with the veal, pancetta, veal and pancetta. Do this again for another set of skewers. Do this to have at least one set of full skewers per person. Grill these on a medium to medium high grill, flipping regularly and basting regularly with olive oil, for twenty minutes or so (depending on how rare you want things, and how runny you want your cheese. We served it with an arugula salad and a nice toscano rosso (not the bestest pairing, but it worked). Not my best work, but still quite tasty.

We're making goat cheese ice cream with cognac boozed fig 'topping' to go with to finish up some Ottoleghi-an lamb chops paired with a carrot with crispy chick pea salad. We'll see how the ice cream turns out (it is a Jeni's recipe - the gold standard).

Dinner: kimchi pancake and the last of the leftover chard-goat cheese-bacon pizza.

 

Currently cooking for weekend lunches:

Chard, roasted sweet potatoes, and quinoa with a lemon-garlic-balsamic dressing.  I am tempted to drink the entire bowl of dressing as is, but I guess that would be a bad idea....

Was in Atlanta yesterday, and happened to be at the fish counter (huge) at Buford Highway Farmers Market just as they were putting out some red snappers, so beautiful, so fresh.  I couldn't resist, so brought home a 3+ pounder in ice.  This evening I improvised a poacher/steamer in the largest roasting pan I own using lots of foil.  Poached/steamed it on the stovetop.  Included some onions, tomatoes, potatoes, savoy cabbage, and corn on the cob right in the poacher.  Made a butter sauce with shallots and garlic and some herbs.  So good!
