Leftovers Saturday (heading out for a couple days starting Monday so this fridge needs emptied asap)
Below is a tiny chanterelle and onion tart with a crust of dressing
The ever present avocado on my table
Leftover roasted veggies get mixed with cream and topped with leftover mashed potatoes to create the vegetable pie below
My new favorite gluten free gravy mix plus mushrooms
And here it is!
It’s Friday but instead of dinner, we did lunch at El Queso Grande…
I did change it up and have eggs
For a snack…super yummy (but a tad salty) bolder canyon turkey and gravy chip
And for dinner…leftovers
Leftover stuffing patties, potato and turkey hash, some cran resin and an avocado so far today….
i was reading the new zingermans catalog today and saw the cheese of the month, olive oils of the month, sausage of the month, etc clubs…and I thought OMG we could have an ingredient of the month club! Everyone could join a “of the month club,” or rotate choosing ingredients, or if they are local ingredients we can set a price limit and the chooser could ship to everyone and we take turns or whatever!
Being internet based, we could share pics and recipes each month in a yahoo group or blog or something…and if people live near each other they can do mini potlucks and share with each other and share pics and recipes!
I’m sure I am not the first person to think of it, but it’s totally knew to me and I’m excited and the first friend I told, Zinna, said “I’m in!”
We could theme a quarter like grains or brassicas , cakes, etc. or whatever we decided!
Who thinks it’s worth exploring!?!? Maybe we call it “food friends” or “friends in food”
Tried out some kale-ettes today
Had some last year and tried again…trying to not eat the thanksgiving horde because it’s all needed.
Sautéed them with color and pees and butter!
Cook up the gluten free gnocchi
I enjoyed it
Next time, no butter
Use Olive oil!
My Spanish rice…yikes I was out of regular rice so this is wild rice and Japanese black rice cooked with spices and tomatoes…it’s actually quite yummy
Potatoes…sautéed in olive oil and spice…for potatoes tacos
Over marinated and cooked shrimps for shrimp tacos
I cut the base on the head and realized that it’s perfect for wraps so you can layer I. Your taco or make it into a taco without the tortilla
Marinated carrots and radish and jalapeño
Background is avocado and o decided that this type doesn’t peel well so I gave us each a spoon to scoop
Beans, rice, potato, and shrimp
Mission Goethe free tortilla
I made him look happy!
One of my cooking helpers..
We really like Nomura Sushi but it’s a little farther away than some other places.. But it’s very good.
They have Echigo which is nice rice beer that is gluten free–you have to ask, it’s not on the menu
You are always welcomed with a bowl of miso which we believe is not gluten free which means I get two.
It’s always pleasant at the sushi bar and we have always had great sushi chefs
Shishito made with tamari with the finest wiggly bonito flakes on top
Amberjack, sea breem, and octopus with shiso in that order. The breem and octopus were really outstanding today.
This roll is yellowtail on top and yellowtail inside with shiso inside too!
Avocado roll to wind down
They always give you oranges with the check
One day we will Uber it there so we can really check out the house made pineapple infused sake.
