What's For Dinner #333
Ann, that beef always looks perfect and so do the Yorkshire puddings. Your picture reminded me that I haven't made popovers in a long time either. (same pan, LOL)
Here I've been canning, drying herbs, trying to get things straightened around for winter on the farm. The house is finally on the market, but it's not such a good time of year to sell a house, so we'll see.
In the meantime, I made some turnip soup with crispy fried poblano rings. Elery liked it a lot, I hope he forgets about it because I was very underwhelmed and wouldn't make it again, LOL.
Today we had shrimp and scallop Spiedinis with lemon butter, some gnocchi with tomato sauce and cheese and cole slaw left over from a couple of meals ago. The cole slaw was a vinaigrette type and got really sour, so it was pucker, but the rest of the meal was yummy.
Elery has been playing with his new pizza oven, there's a learning curve he says. Couldn't prove it by me, he made this foccacia and it was delicious, with nice big holes. He drizzled it with the Italian herbed olive oil that Sherry brought when she came to visit and that gave it a nice "herb-y" taste, as well as a small grating of good parmesan.
We used some for breakfast sandwiches, it was good cold too!
A few days ago he asked me to make some pizza crust, but we didn't use it so I stuck it in the fridge for a couple of days. Yesterday we hauled it out and made some calzone with our homemade Italian sausage and cheese.
And since we had that stone oven heated up to 700 degrees, I rolled out some homemade corn tortillas:
We had black bean and rice burritos one night and so Elery took the leftover beans and rice and the tortillas and made breakfast, along with some eggs. I passed on everything except the eggs and made a slice of toast, I just can't eat that spicy stuff in the morning.
The final verdict, though, was to just slap the tortillas in a cast iron skillet, they were so not worth messing over in the pizza oven.
