I had asked B to make some chili this past weekend -- which was a success -- and I found out later that he had used a Cook's Illustrated recipe.

:blink:

I suppose I'll have to revisit my dislike of that magazine now.

Oh, this was tonight's dessert:  a fig galette that had a bit of frangipane spread beneath the fruit.

@TrelayneNYC that galette looks delicious. If you don't mind sharing, where did you find the figs?

Was from the Ferry Building farmers' market this past Saturday.

They were going for 1 lb./$5.50.

Broiled cod with anchovy-raisin-parsley salsa
Creamed corn

The salsa saved the meal from being a dinner straight out of the 1950s. Plates were almost monochromatic.

BTW, the corn is from a recipe from "Small Victories" by Julia Turshen, page 104. Takes 15 minutes from start to finish and has three ingredients not counting salt and pepper. B remarked, "It's better than the canned version!"

A very lemony dinner for @MichaelBDC and me last night. Dusted off Ad Hoc at Home and made Thomas Keller's brined pork tenderloin. Skipped the preserved lemons for fresh ones. Sides were roasted potatoes with garlic, lemon, and oregano and sauteed green beans (with a squeeze of lemon juice).

Last week I wasn't cooking as much, we were just fairly busy, but I did make:

Stir fried rice noodles with shrimp, daikon, snow peas with a peanut sauce that I diluted down with some beef stock into more of a pasta sauce than dipping sauce.

We had leftovers for dinner tonight:

kare-kare (oxtails with eggplant and bok choy in peanut sauce) and bagoong (fried garlic and fermented shrimp paste)
adobo (chicken and pork with vinegar, garlic and soy sauce)
fagiolini e pomodoro (green beans braised in tomato sauce)
creamed corn (corn cooked with butter, salt and cream)
 

Then I prepared the following for a dinner party for three:

Beef and pork meatballs (breadcrumbs, milk, Italian parsley, mint, Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, nutmeg, egg, beef, pork).

The meatballs were baked instead of fried and will be braised in a tomato sauce tomorrow afternoon.

I have made these plenty of times before and prefer baking them instead of frying. They're lighter and there's not as much mess; can't beat that.
