Marinated vegetables and bacon/sun dried tomato sausage. All of the vegetables were grown in Ontario, some within 30km of home. The sausage was made in the grocery store right here in town.
Have picked about 4 cups of Chocolate Cherry Tomatoes in the last few days. That’s on top of the 8? cups picked before this week. More are on the way, in varying stages of maturing and ripeness.
So good simply popped in my mouth – not all make it inside – in salads, baked in a little olive oil with garlic, rosemary, and pepper.
I smoked a chicken recently. Spatchcocked it, applied Simon & Garfunkel rub, into the smoker, and finished on the grill to crisp the skin up.
It was marvellous, as was the smoked potato salad and grilled asparagus.
It is a little hard to see the seven asparagus spears in our small ‘spare grass’ patch. We have already enjoyed several fresh spears. The strawberries are starting to flower (though you cannot see the flowers in this image). The haskap bush in the background has flowered and should set fruit soon.
We got take-out from a Jamaican place. On the left (from left), jerk chicken, rice and beans, coleslaw, pork rolls with a spicy dipping sauce. On the right (from left), the rise and beans, coleslaw, dipping sauce with the pork rolls, and curry goat. Delicious.
Oh and at bottom: Lucy expressing a desire to expand her culinary horizons.
A beef brisket, rubbed with spices and herbs, smoked low and slow. And oh is it good.
Pizza on a home-made crust with a pesto base, chopped bell pepper, fresh mushrooms, smoked chicken, and mozzarella.
Pan-roasted salmon garnished with cilantro and quick-sauteed diced jalapenos, oven-roasted skin on sweet potatoes, and jasmine rice also garnished with cilantro. Delicious.
Courtesy of Nick’s House of Pancakes, Ann Arbor. I went with the hash browns, scrambled eggs, chicken and chorizo rolled into a tortilla which was topped with diced bell pepper, cheddar, and a most excellent tomatillo sauce. It made for two generous meals. While I can’t and don’t eat this way all the time, it was well worth the gustatory splurge.
Tonights’ dinner: a nice spinach frittata with slices of a home-baked baguette (thank you sweetie).
