    Dinner tonight is steak with chargrilled courgettes, aubergines and red peppers. Mixed with Puy lentils and a sauce which consists of garlic, chilli, red wine vinegar, oregano and crumbled feta!

    Probably not - I'm sure Harri would like the meat but as veggies BBQ is not top of my list. I don't like the fake meat products and there's only so many vegetable and halloumi kebabs I can face in the summer....

    Probably a nice Greek style salad here tonight with home made bread and if I can be bothered to brave the rhubarb patch, a rhubarb fool :D

    It’s been a bit hectic, settling into the new job / apt / neighborhood & routine, but i’ve done lots of cooking. :)

    Highlights include a lovely fish chowdah, with line-caught Alaskan cod, roasted veg (potatoes, bell pprs, onions), & arrowroot as the thickener for the milk broth, with OTC crackers; chicken paprikash with mashed pots & grilled asparagus; pork pot-stickers with jasmine rice, & sautéed spinach.
    I also roasted a gorgeous big spaghetti-squash with EVOO & granulated garlic - that was scrumptious, I ate it several ways, stirring fresh-grated Parm-Reg into it, or with primavera red sauce... it was yummy any way I had it. :)

    This morning my client had his sliced banana & strong coffee; I had a crepe, filled with black seedless grapes & cantaloupe, plus vanilla yogurt... everything organic. Mmmm...

    What’s been on Ur fork or spoon, lately? :)

    You’re making me hungry! All sounds yummy.

    We are making the most of the dry weather and are having a bbq with marinated tikka chicken thighs, all types of veg and roasted sweet potatoe. I love the taste of the veg done on the bbq!

    Wild & brown rice with fried onion, pesto, cherry tomatoes, lime juice and cashew nuts, topped with char-grilled asparagus, broccoli and halloumi.

    Some of the ingredients were just added because they needed using up...

    We had pasta with tuna, fresh chopped tomatoes and cucumber olive oil and salt. It was lovely! We made it yesterday and ate it today as we are all tiered...

    I’ve created a yummy new combo for brekkie:

    I take a pumpkin-spice cookie from Lenny & Larry,
    some applesauce, a ripe banana,
    & a couple spoonsful of Wild Friends pumpkin spice PEANUT BUTTER...

    all of them together are so good - :p Now, I have to find a source for Wild Friends p-b, LOL, as i’m addicted. :oops: The jar of p-b came in my most-recent box of samples from UrthBox, & I have no idea who sells it, retail. :D Wish me luck!

    I’m bummed, & shocked as well -
    One 16-oz jar of Wild Friends p-b will set me back $20, plus S&H. :eek: From their own website, direct purchase!

    WTH do these ppl think they’re selling, an elixir of healing?!... :blink: It’s not even organic, it’s only GMO-free, which is a very low bar, IMO. :( Yes, it’s tasty, but at over a dollar per oz, I can make my own, thanks very much. :p

    It’s only pumpkin-pie spices added to plain-Jane PB, it shouldn’t be difficult.

    Oh, yeah - & no retailer the Boston area carries it, either. :—/
    Could it be that they are an overpriced product in a highly competitive niche market, all fighting for shelf space?...

    We’ve had some very interesting meals, lately -
    IMO, the best was a picnic for dinner, with assorted fruits, cheeses, 2 kinds of bread, an incredible dry-cured Italian copa ham (for my client) & stone-ground Mexican chocolate for dessert. Wow! - best of all, it was a surprise, my boss came home with 2 incredible cheeses from Jasper Hill Cellars plus the paper-sliced ham, & I assembled the rest. :)
    It was scrumptious. Especially on a chilly, windy night!
    I even brought sparkling organic cider, that was delicious, too.

    Today was a work-from-home day for my client, so he had 3 meals here -
    1/2 a ripe banana plus a BelVita oatmeal cookie (slathered with applesauce - the cookie, not the banana) for brekkie while in bed,
    fresh-made egg salad with minced shallot & Dijonnaise on toasted English muffin open-faced,
    & for dinner, spaghettini with a beef sauce.
    We split a pear for dessert, plus a wedge from the Taza chocolate disk.

    I had my egg salad with a whole-grain horseradish mustard, & my pasta with basil / garlic red sauce. :) Yummy!

    Tomorrow i’m making sausage sandwiches for his dinner, sautéed pprs & onions over hot Italian sausage with a little red sauce, on crusty ciabatta.
    I have 3 Delicata squash, I think I will oven-roast those & 2# of parsnips with EVOO, some garlic, & fresh-ground pprcorns. // I also have 2 gorgeous sweet potatoes, organic Jersey Golds, they can go into a 375’F oven with the rest. :D

    I love Hasselbach baked potatoes, drizzled with EVOO, sprinkled with a little sea-salt, garlic, & fresh-ground ppr...
    when I eat them, before reheating them, I add grated Parmesan between the “pages”, or some caramelized onions, or after reheating, top them with a good Greek yogurt (rather than sour cream — I carry enuf pudge, LOL, don’t need any added fat! :D )

    Hasselbachs are scrumptious, no matter how they’re made. :)
