  1. Chicken drumsticks with bbq sauce Smoked cheddar - jalapeño mac and cheese Steamed green beans TJ's multigrain sourdough bread and evoo or butter
  2. Mini cheeseburgers with lettuce and tomato Purple hull peas with rice and bacon I bought the people hull peas at Eastern Market...a couple of weeks ago. I wasn't sure how to cook them, so looked up traditional recipes, which is how I came up with the rice and bacon combo. They really didn't seem different from regular green peas in the pod, except the pods were prettier. I used leftover rice pilaf for this and made roughly 1/3 of a recipe because I only had a cup of shelled peas. I bought some smoked cheddar from the same stand yesterday (Sunnyside?) and used it on the burgers. I bought the meat at Union Meats inside the market. Their butcher's blend is fantastic.
  3. Wednesday was baked cod with thyme, lemon, and butter; roasted broccoli and baby potatoes; and sautéed chopped kale. Last night was fish tacos made from the leftovers (cod, kale, chopped tomato, jalapeno; lime juice and sour cream); rice pilaf; black beans).
  4. You're most welcome. I love Joy's blog. Using the dried porcini in that recipe is truly worth it in terms of the depth of flavor. It might just be me but I find that I end up chopping the chicken rather than being able to fork-shred it. It's not that it's not tender, but just the way that cooked boneless chicken thighs seem to be. After the Caps parade, I stopped on the way back this afternoon to watch the rally on tv and eat a mushroom pizza. I ate half and brought the other 4 pieces home for my husband's later dinner. I doctored it up with additional sautéed cremini mushrooms and shredded pot roast, plus fresh basil from the plant on our porch, banana pepper rings, provolone, mozzarella, and Parmesan. He called it "loaded" pizza and wolfed it down. I ate the dregs of it and thought it was pretty good. I also made a salad of iceberg lettuce, sliced cucumber, and sliced strawberries, plus crumbled feta and a grating of black pepper. Homemade balsamic vinaigrette.

    DR Summer picnic -7/29/18 Noon to 5ish

    Getting that thing hacked open was quite something.
  7. Thursday: Braised chicken and mushroom ragu over pipe rigate (a very good recipe I found via the Joy the Baker blog and have made a few times) Friday: Pot roast with tomatoes, garlic, potato and carrots (based off this recipe, with potatoes and carrots roasted separately) Saturday: Poulet à la Moutarde from David Lebovitz's My Paris Kitchen (have made several times; this time served with steamed cauliflower, which was great coated in the creamy mustard sauce) Sunday: Iceberg lettuce, sliced tomatoes, and ranch dressing; leftover pot roast, potatoes, and carrots.
  8. I woke up looking forward to a celebratory day, and this was the first news story I saw...This short piece has a link to the CNN report. How awful for all his friends and family. Poor Eric Ripert.
  9. Toasted multigrain sourdough bread Eggplant Parmesan Spaghetti and meatballs with marinara sauce Knowing I was going to be at the Nats' game in the afternoon, I had made the meatballs and eggplant the day before. All I had to do for dinner was reheat the foil-covered eggplant in a low oven and the meatballs in marinara sauce on the stove while making the spaghetti. Topped everything with some grated Parmesan. Very good.
  10. Cucumber salad Sliced tomatoes Baked chicken breasts Baked sweet potato with maple syrup Boiled corn on the cob with butter and Parmesan
  11. Multigrain sourdough bread Spinach tortellini with baby spinach, sun-dried tomatoes, herbs, and ramp - pea shoot butter
  12. Last night was a catchall stir-fry (tofu, broccoli, onions, garlic, bell peppers, sugar snap peas, and haricots certs) with Thai rice noodles and pan-grilled boneless pork chops sliced and served alongside. Wednesday was leftover pickled black-eyed peas and a chicken, kale, and mushroom casserole.
  13. You know, for some reason I was assuming this was for someone coming from the North. Coming from the southern side, in addition to all of Capitol Hill, there's there's that 3 Brothers on Kenilworth/295.
