What I had for dinner on Sunday, March 11, 2012

On Saturday I went to the farmers’ market, where I got a couple of shoulder steaks of “wild pig” (whatever that means, exactly; the market booth staff couldn’t really tell me). I also got some green garlic and some parsley from a different booth, some cremini mushrooms from a mushroom farm, and a few lovely [...]

I went to Texas! I went to South by Southwest Interactive for work. By the time I got my hotel (back in like November) all the downtown places were sold out, but I found the Hotel Allandale, which, though it was like ten miles out of downtown, has a kitchen in each room and is [...]

What I had for dinner on Thursday, March 1, 2012

We were tired and uninspired. G. had work in the city during the day and we were on the same boat home — 5:30 departure from Seattle = 6:30ish arrival home. I made magically delicious soup! with homemade Italian sausage, homegrown kale and carrot, leek from the one place at Pike Place Market whose name [...]

A while back I got some sausage at Uli’s, though I can’t find the previous post for some reason. Maybe it is one of the “I don’t know” days. Anyway today we had the other sausages I got that day, which was a South African sausage called “boerewors“, with beef and pork and red wine [...]

Steak au poivre again, mostly following Julia’s instructions like before, except we used red wine instead of cognac.

Probably also kale and potatoes.

I have no use for Valentine’s Day. Which is why I have zero recollection of what we had for dinner. I have some vague idea that it was something totally prosaic with potatoes and kale. Because, you know, February.

A delicious rib steak au poivre, according to Julia. I let it sit at room temp for a few hours coated with white and black peppercorns roughly crushed in a mortar and pestle. We did not follow her directions for cooking it, as G. prefers Alton’s method, with a very hot (like 800°) cast iron [...]

I think we had T-bone steak, prepared like this roast. I think we also had oven fries with squash sticks as well as potato sticks, and I think we also had kale.

I got some Swedish potato sausage at Uli’s yesterday when I was at the Market — not homemade, but I’m storing that recipe here for future reference. We ate it tonight with more boiled Laughing Crow potatoes with rosemary butter (homegrown rosemary, storebought organic butter), and sautéed homegrown kale with homegrown cayenne flakes and LC/hg [...]
