After what Lionel and Jean would call a fry-up for breakfast (no tinned beans or soggy tomato, but voluminous and beholden to grease), and a late mug of a riff on Lulu's garlicky French lentil soup (love Vitamix!!) sipped for lunch, an lperry sort of a dinner:

Left side of plate:
Raw Tuscan kale salad w thyme-scented marinaded feta, black bits of oil-cured olives and squishy yellow, slow-roasted Italian plum tomatoes.

Right side:
Shreds of raw, red beets w slivered, supremed Tarroco orange, snipped chives and chiffonade of mint.

Thick slab of Puglese, toasted to mop up
Good Chianti, not quite vinegary but

N.B. The Tarroco orange was fantastic. Purchased at Friendship Hts Safeway. Pretty and sweet as the ones I've had on winter mornings spent over the course of many years in cold kitchens not far from their source.

Dinner last night:

Chilled early spring soup (roasted asparagus and green garlic from dupont pureed with a couple canned san marzanos and south mountain cream), vincotto, pickled shallots, brioche (LeoNora!) croutons.
Weisswurst (German gourmet) over endless summer arugula* wilted with shallots, red chilis, green garlic, muscat grapes, and pork stock.

Cheap cold white wine...the house was hot. Keswick choclate pudding for dessert.

Hmmmm. I didn't realize I have a pattern!

Spinach salad topped with roasted butternut squash (from the 2011 garden), apple, goat's cheese, and dried cranberries (cliché, but tasty), all in a mustard vinaigrette. A fall-ish dinner to go with the fall-ish weather.

cochinita pibil* made with herb-brined eco-friendly pork shoulder
home-made refried beans
rice
salsa cruda which included tomatillos and roasted corn
tortillas
mango panna cotta
Negra Modelo

*skin on meat is scored, then the roast is completely enrobed with a spice recado made of achiote paste, orange juice, lime juice, garlic, onion and cilantro, wrapped in banana leaves, double wrapped in aluminum foil and slow baked in the oven at 300 degrees for 4-5 hours. Unwrapped and top-roasted for 15 minutes to brown and crisp the skin. Fall apart succulent. We were happy campers last night.

Home-grown radishes with butter and salt
Pizzas topped with new potatoes (pan-fried in butter) and goat's cheese (put in the mini-chop with fresh dill and lemon)

The pizza crusts were the frozen ones from the Happy Tart, and they were quite good.

Even more leftover stuffed pasta shells (did I make a lot of those... :blink: )
Eggy fried rice with garlic, ginger, mint, and fresh peas

Casual company, al fresco, and ahhhh:
  • Cherry Glen Monocacy Chipotle on Edward & Sons purple rice and black sesame crackers
  • Smith Meadows Bratwurst and mixed bell peppers, beer-steamed on the grill, on just-baked rolls
  • Beer-steamed asparagus with garlic (yes, roasted/grilled is better, but we got lazy and the wolves were after us)
  • Freshly cut sweet potato oven fries, with a dill/peppadew/lime mayonnaise for dipping
  • Palate-bracing jalapeno carrot and cucumber pickles (Del Ray farmers market mavens take note, much deliciousness from Fresh Crunch!)
  • Ancient Peaks Zinfandel, roof-smattering terroir providing a surprisingly soft and supple, crowd-pleasing effect
  • "Simple Slushies": Malbec wine, with vanilla pod/apple/cinnamon/honey simple syrup, and a splash of tonic water, served over ice
  • Apple and orange pie, hot, a la mode, with a drizzle of the long-steeped simple syrup

Life is uncertain. It is certain, however, that if you don't root through and switch out some of the mangos in a case, they all get ripe at once.

Sweet rice with mango and coconut cream.

Homemade tagliatelle. Sauce made from rendering some Benton's prosciutto and then sauteeing some chopped fresh asparagus in the prosciutto fat, some added smoked bacon fat, and a pat of butter. Added the pasta to that mix along with a ladle of pasta water and parm to bring it together.

Laughing Dog Devil Dog IPA.

Last Night: Black Beans, Pork, and Jasmine rice.

Made stock from 4 hour slow poached smoked ham hock w/ some thyme, bay leaves, fennel seed, corriander seed, carrots and a head of garlic. Strained and reduced stock and cooked soaked/dried black beans in until tender. Reserved stock / black bean liquid for rice.

Crisped up some "lardons" cut from my homemade bacon which I smoked this past Saturday. Removed "lardons" and scorched a "sofrito" (from food processor) of celery, red bell, green bell, 2 jalapenos, 1/2 spanish onion until the liquid was gone. Added some canned san marzano tomato liquid cooked until reduced. Added rinsed rice, lardons, shredded smoked ham hock meat, reduced stock / bean liquid, and hand torn canned san marzano tomatoes.

Seasoned with ancho chili powder, cumin, apple cider vinegar, sea salt, and black pepper. Cover with heavy lid and cook @ 350 for 35 minutes until thickened.

Tonight was a red wine and mushroom stock risotto topped with crimini mushrooms in a red wine, balsamic, honey reduction. Roasted cauliflower on the side. That stuff is just amazing.

Last week I made some Indian vegetarian food,
Posted Image
and some Thai food (of course),
Posted Image

This week I finally got around to cooking from my new Sri Lankan cookbook, Rice and Curry. The author of this book is S. H. Fernando Jr. who turns out to be the same guy as Skiz Fernanado AKA Spectre AKA The ill Saint, DJ and label head of the strange and confounding Wordsound label. This music was one of my main inspirations for getting into the DJ game (though I don't actually spin Wordsound music much outside my own home. It's an acquired taste.)
Turns out Skiz has been doing food related stuff for a few years now, including living with relatives in Sri Lanka for a year to collect recipes for this book. He appeared on the No Reservations Sri Lanka episode (which I have not seen) and has a nice cooking and travel blog and some good cooking videos. He now resides in Baltimore.

I made Kukal Mas (chicken curry the photo below is cooking in progress, not the finished dish),
Posted Image
Vambotu curry (Aunty Manel's Special Eggplant Curry), Radish and Tomato Sambol, and brown jasmine rice. I had been waiting to cook from this book till I could get fresh curry leaves, but all the usual spots were out, so I just left them out. Everything was still tasty but if anyone has seen fresh curry leaves anywhere let me know. I will be cooking from this book again very soon.
Posted Image

Back to Thai food last night. Salmon with basil and chillies, roasted eggplant salad, pork jerky (from Bangkok 54) and brown jasmine rice.
Posted Image

This week also included much sticky rice and mango, both store bought and homemade.

After a lot of travel and a lot of time away from the kitchen, I cooked dinner for my husband and parents last night - and I am definitely RUSTY! I made a saffron chicken pasta dish that I've made before, but I totally underestimated the timing, I forgot two key ingredients for the sauce (lemon juice and basil), and I somehow undersalted the whole thing, even though I seasoned at every step. Luckily, everyone was really hungry. :P

Glad to be back on the horse...

Some things I have been cooking,
Saturday I grilled a chicken (ไก่ย่าง) (garlic, cilantro root, white pepper, coriander seed, palm sugar, fish sauce), steamed some sticky rice (ข้าวเหนียว), and made green papaya salad (ส้มตำมะละกอ). Also made a dipping sauce of lime juice, fish sauce, shallots, roasted rice powder, roasted galanga, palm sugar and dried chillies (น้ำจิ้มแจ่ว).

Sunday, grilled chicken salad (ยำไก่ย่าง), rice and vegetables. (no photo)

Monday, more som tam (green papaya salad, ส้มตำ) rice, bacon, vegetables, Thai "omelet" (ไข่ยัดไส้), and Lagunitas Imperial Red Ale.

Last night - chicken, pepper jack, and peach quesadillas with a salad. First peaches of the season are teeny tiny, but oh so tasty.

Tonight - grilled chicken and pineapple sandwiches with jalapeno and red onion, with the first corn of the season (also teeny tiny - not very sweet, but I always get really jazzed about the appearance of summer produce).

Recipe !

Well, I found this version today, which is probably more like chicken nuggets. Mine went something like this:

1 to 2 pieces of chicken breast meat (cut into cubes)
Salt
Pepper
Ginger slices (or insert your favorite herb here)
Sweet Potato Flour
Panko

Marinade (Night before):
Milk
Alcohol (Rice wine or a sweet hard liquor)
A splash of soy sauce

Prep:
  • Cube chicken, put into marinade, let it sit overnight.
  • Take chicken out, pat dry a little, toss into salt and pepper.
  • Coat with Sweet Potato Flour and then finish with panko (egg wash optional).
  • Use leftover fat (chicken fat in this case) + high-heat-tolerant frying oil -- heat to optimal temperature for frying. (Make sure it covers half of the chicken).

When oil is hot enough (chopsticks test), toss in herb (ginger for me), then place gently coated chicken cubes.
Flip when ready,
Drain and serve.

Saturday night, pre-Mom's day special: Hardware Store Oysters*
  • rinsed thoroughly, shucked quickly to the halfshell
  • topped with minced shallot, ginger, and mango, and a splash of a moscato vinaigrette
  • then placed on a mesquite-smoke lump charcoal fire, and put the lid on.
Four minutes later, this was the kind of food that makes you gasp "there is a God!". Smoky, briny, barely fruity, edge-of-spicy from the ginger, hint of sweet from the wine, and above all, pure and prevalent oyster flavor.

*From a tucked away cooler in the corner of a tiny hardware store in the Tidewater area. The store owner's cousin has an oyster business. Whenever the owner has to make a trek over to the Eastern Shore by way of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel, he recoups his $13 fare by selling 25 outrageously perfect oysters for $13. You can sometimes luck into buying more than one bag, which we did Saturday night, and have an epic feast.

Last night:
Sourdough toast with hummus
José Andrés's Fried Egg with Chorizo
Steamed spinach
Roasted red potatoes

I found the egg/chorizo recipe on Serious Eats. It was delicious and satisfying, but I altered the recipe a little and it was a bit too greasy. I'm not sure if making the recipe exactly as written would result in it not being greasy, though. Since the SE notes on the recipe said it would be good with greens, I served this over the spinach.

Dinner around 10 since I made strawberry shortcake for a late-afternoon lunch (again) with a surplus of strawberries mostly from Next Step Produce and cream from Clear Spring Creamery. Walked off a bit of it when heading to and fro Qualia, chosing aromatic coffee beans from Sidoma as a splurge.

Japanese food Sunday:

Yudebuta to shiomominasu - sumiso dare: boiled pork shoulder with raw eggplant, vinegar-miso sauce
Toumorokoshi genmai gohan: brown rice with fresh corn mixed in
Hamaguri bata-yaki: butter-fried clams
Kyuuri to wakame no sumomi: vinegared cucumbers and wakame seaweed. I don't think mine could actually be called sumomi because I used ponzu instead of a vinegar dressing.
Miso soup with shiitake
Iburigakko: smoked pickled daikon radish
