    My daughter made Korean BBQ for Father’s Day. Turns out the Cobb Cooker we learned about here from Ingo was perfect.

    It's been [really] hot here in the PNW the last several days. So the mantra has been Thou shall not fire the oven.

    Saturday night, we made grilled tuna steak with sauce vierge (a raw, herbed tomato sauce). Last night, it was gazpacho with tuna ceviche.

    The grilled tuna is great. It's a recipe from Patricia Wells' Bistro Cooking, one of my flavorite cookbooks.

    Grilled Tuna With Sauce Vierge

    Sauce:
    3 tomatoes, peeled, cored, seeded and chopped
    1/2 cup (12.5 cl) of extra-virgin olive oil
    4 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
    3 garlic cloves, minced
    Salt
    Large handful of fresh herbs, preferably a blend of chervil, chives, tarragon and parsley [but use what you've got]

    Tuna:
    1 pound (500 g) fresh tuna steak sliced 3 inches (7.5 cm) thick [And I wouldn't sweat the 3-inch thickness too much. We're looking to leave the center uncooked here.]
    1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

    Prepare the sauce: Combine the tomatoes, olive oil, lemon juice, and garlic in a bowl; stir to blend. Season with salt to taste and set aside for 1–2 hours to allow the flavors to blend. Just before cooking the tuna, mince the herbs and stir to blend. [I wouldn't be too dogmatic on the "1–2 hour" rest. It's perfectly fine making it up right when you need it.]

    Fire up your grill, as hot as you can get it.

    Brush the tuna with the olive oil. Cook the tuna for just 1 or 2 minutes on each side. The tuna will be very rosy and rare on the inside and charred on the outside. [We're looking for charred outsides and barely warm sushi on the inside here.]

    Remove the tuna to a large preheated platter and top with half the sauce. Then cut the tuna into thick strips and serve with additional sauce.

    Serve with pasta, baby red potatoes, Spanish rice, or some grilled vegetables with lemon juice and olive oil.

    We are heading to another FREE concert on the lake tonight - Magic! ( never heard of them but then we watched a YouTube and we were like OH yea I know that song )

    I lucked out, getting us a front row center blanket spot. You see they do this lottery you show up and everyone gets a colored wrist ban with a number. Then they call out the color and the number. I got there late and they were just starting to call the first group, people show up at 5:30 am I got there just at 7:00 when they call the numbers. But here's the thing its totally random, no sooner did I get my bracelet they called Pink 3, Just as I looked down and saw I was wearing a Pink 3 wristband

    So the concert starts at 7:00 we are going to take the vespa down with chairs and a backpack cooler with some crisp Rosé, some cheese, olives, crackers, charcuterie meats and maybe some hummus and enjoy the show

    Thats our blanket in the foreground

    Stuffed Summer Squash

    I grew the squash, tomatoes and parsley. I used beef tonight, but this works great with venison. This is tasty, nutritious and colorful. And easy.

    Here we go!

    Slice summer squash/ zuchini lengthwise and deseed.
    Using a spoon, scrape out the flesh to about half its depth in each slice. Dice those scrapings and set aside.

    Blanche the squash halves.

    In a pan with a bit of olive oil, lightly sautee chopped onion, pepper, minced garlic. Add ground beef ( you will want about 1/5 pound per squash half, maybe a bit less ) Lightly brown.

    Add diced tomato, chopped parsley and the squash scrapings. Toss pan, cook for two more minutes and remove from heat.

    Spoon meat mixture into squash halves. Place in a 350F oven for 40 mins or so.



    Remove from oven and top with grated cheese. I used queso blanco.





    Serve with hot sauce.

    Cross section!

    without regard to time, noise, or mess
    okay okay, i'm pretty much always free of those constraints, lol
    but i digress

    It'll be a weird dinner.

    I'm grilling some chicken tenderloins and some bell peppers... and the kids are ordering pizza for the babies, but will get enough for every one. A 'two-course' dinner?

    Not fancy, but tasty. For Her birthday yesterday:

    Grilled shrimp and red peppers (warm) on esquites (Mexican corn salad - cold), new potato salad (cold), green beans (warm), beer (ice cold).

    Potatoes, beans, lettuce, Serrano peppers, and all herbs from the garden.

    Dog for scale, then sent away.

    Three slabs of baby back ribs, mesquite smoked on the old Weber Smokey Mountain Cooker while the Tornado sirens were going off. What could possibly go wrong?

    I've been planning our first trip back to New York since the pandemic and completely lost track of time going down the AirBnB wormhole. I just realized it's after 8:30 PST which here in sleepy SoCal means local restaurants are putting the chairs on top of tables and locking up. Renee is working late tonight should be home shortly so I'm gonna run to sprouts and figure out what to make for dinner.

    I can't wait to walk into a busy NYC restaurant and be told to sit at the bar and wait for a table at 10 pm

    Jeez, the price of good steak is high there. We would perhaps pay that for a Kilo.
    There is nothing quite as permanent as a good temporary repair.

    Simple dish tonight. A Caribbean style curry with local king George whiting my son caught with organic jasmine rice with turmeric.

    Thanks. It had several different kinds of lettuce, beet tops and stems chopped small, parsley, dill weed, onion tops, chives, lemon balm, cilantro, fennel tops, salvia, tomato, several herbs, Johnny-jump-up flowers and other flowers. Sitka strawberries.

    Here, the Prime Cut costs about double of “Choice”. It’s more heavily marbled and very tender. Prime Cut is in short supply here. The store has a large meat area and there may be total of two to three Prime Cut steaks amongst a hundred “Choice” meat packages.

    That’s enough of meat for me to have two to three meals while Kalevala is out to sea.

    Son1 made Vietnamese Chicken Soup. Mung bean noodles, rich broth, chicken, sprouts, mint, basil, cilantro, to taste... and a dash of hot chili paste for the adults. Big hit. Even the babies liked it.
