    Someone was showing off their Shepherds's Pie the other day. It finally inspired me to make one.

    Nothing fancy tonight, but the combination turned out well. Cheese omelette, with mostly sharp cheddar, and a dollop of gorgonzola. Roasted cabbage with salt/pepper/paprika & caraway seeds. Steamed asparagus with a lemon/garlic aioli.

    Just put the chicken thighs in to marinate for Chicken Tagine to feed the kids tonight. First time dish for me. Wish me luck. Jeebus saffron is expensive.

    I'll pair it was a Greek Salad, and some chewy bread. Brownies for dessert.

    Never tried Tagine, but I should give it a go.

    We had friends over and I made eggplant parmesan.



    Sauce from our greenhouse tomatoes, fresh basil, a delicious mess. With crusty bread, a fresh green salad, and a couple bottles of Ridge 2013 Zinfandel, in its prime.

    Homemade everything: weissbier, bratwurst, blaukraut, sauerkraut, and potatoes. Epic.

    Potatoes. White with yellow flesh, very tasty, long storage life.



    We're still eating last year's crop from the cellar. They'll run out in May.

    I made that chicken Tagine, and the greek salad, for the kids last night. So tonight was leftovers. The greek salad really hit the spot. The chicken tagine was very good, but I was hoping for stellar. I'll do it slightly differently next time. A friend brought over a slab of home-made fudge, so I had a bit - with milk - for dessert. Delish.

    Herself asked for Mac & Cheese, and I happened on a recipe in the NY Times for a stovetop version. No roux. Cream cheese for the creamy texture, with whole milk, sharp white cheddar, unsalted butter, and leftover penne.



    Big hit. Definitely cook it again– so much simpler than the classic sort.

    Just got an order of heirloom Mexican beans from an outfit called Rancho Gordo. This one is called the Yellow Indian Woman. I cooked the beans in a pressure cooker (we're at about 2300m / 8000 ft.) Then I simmered the beans with finely-minced onion, carrot, celery, and garlic for an hour or so. They were delicious right out of the pot: plump, meaty, with a silky broth.



    With the order came a cookbook: The Rancho Gordo Vegetarian Kitchen. I flopped it open at random and cooked the recipe on that page, which he calls breakfast, but which also made a great dinner. An asparagus nest filled with beans and topped with a poached egg.




    We've been shifting away from meat and this sort of delicious thing is a great incentive.

    Haven't done much exciting for dinner lately. But today's lunch was a keeper. My sweetie made a mushroom-based chicken spread, so I had some of that on rye toast, with melted Stilton. Oven-roasted potatoes on the side, with some of that Indian ketchup. Pilsner to drink, since I'm taking the day off. Hot dang... I want ANOTHER. Oops... the weight-loss plan says otherwise. So I'll just sit here and savor the memory.

    A good trick for potatoes. Cube and boil until barely tender. Let cool. Toss with kosher salt and olive oil. Roast on a baking sheet at about 400░F until slightly browned.

    Crisp crust around a fluffy center.

    That's was my sweetie does. And they are really good, indeed. Only she does them as wedges.

    I believe the word you are seeking is halal (permissable). The opposite of that is haram (forbidden).

    I thought it was clear in the photo that she was cutting up my meal for me

    Copper River salmon from 2017, vacuum-packed and frozen. Yukon Gold potato salad, near the last of the 2017 crop from the cellar, on romaine lettuce. Greenhouse tomato, sliced.



    Hahn California pinot noir, not costly but very good. As I get older, modest portions are becoming the rule.

    SWMBO is on a campaign for healthier dinners these days.... possibly as a result of my gaining about 10 lbs over the winter

    So, last night, I made cioppino... or, at least, MY version of the classic Italian fish soup/stew... super easy and quick, and pretty healthy.

    It starts with a couple of vidalia onions, sweated in a large soup pot.... add chicken stock and a large can of diced tomatoes, a couple of diced Yukon Gold potatoes, a bunch of chopped parsley, some rosemary and thyme... and simmer for a half hour, until the potatoes are tender:



    Ten minutes before serving, add the fish. Last night, it was haddock and shrimp, both of which were on sale yesterday:



    Served in soup bowls, with some crusty ciabatta bread.

    In Murano, Italy. This pasta dish with crumbled fresh fish and tomatoes in a light herb sauce was outstanding.Finished with a espresso macchiato.

    I can't compete with what I'm seeing here. Tonight I will make some tarragon chicken salad just for nibbles, but I honestly don't know what is for dinner.

    Rotini pasta tonight with shrimp & marina sauce. Also - black olives, garlic, basil, lime, and fresh-ground pepper. My sweetie also had salad. I stuck with the pasta for an appetizer. And dessert.
