    Grilled salmon steaks (Tomak--great minds think alike) with lemon juice and salt, Broccolo Romano (this is a cross between cauliflower and broccoli, It has a cone shape and is light green in color, actually beautiful, and has more flavor than cauliflower) with EVOO and salt. I also made a pie with raspberry jam.

    Broccolo Romano......... around here its called Romanesco broccoli. Very expensive, hard to find, but as soon as I see in stores its in my kitchen. Its almost too pretty to cut up and cook haha :)

    Yes!! That's my baby! Here, it's cheap--like cauliflower or broccoli in price.

    PS: Tomek, how do you cook yours?

    My fav was to eat any cauliflower and broccoli is to roast it. Brings out the sweetness. I then add it to various dishes like pasta, stirfry, curries etc.

    But this one, since its so pretty... I take the whole head, strip the leafs, place on a plate and loosely cover with plastic wrap, place in a microwave for 5min. It will steam / cook through. I take take it out, paint it with oil and into a hot over at 450F until its all charred. Here you are not cooking it, its already soft, you are only charring it. Yumm.

    to show my nerdy side, there's some math wound up in this veggie. beautiful. original "star trek" used to color cut-up sponges to represent alien foods. they should have used this stuff, lol. we don't see it a lot here, except in the big produce/farm markets.

    A little more about this vegetable. It's called Romano, or Romanesco because, even here in Italy, it's mainly grown in the countryside outside of Rome--Lazio region. Our climate here must be right. It's a winter vegetable, like cauliflower.

    Last night's dinner: Homemade chicken soup, oriental turkey burgers over rice, baby carrots, and wine.

    My husband and I work different times and don't often have dinner together, so it was a good meal.

    Sounds exactly like that great Italian dish...pasta fagioli.

    Salad with pear, blue cheese and candied pecans to start. My ribeye and shared sides. Carrots were roasted too long and look awful but tasted nice. Mash. Leftover sauces from last weekends roast. Onion gravy and hollandaise. The latter can be reheated at the lowest setting of the microwave.

    My last meal was a Lenten Friday supper, so I kept it simple: a sweet bell pepper with hummus and a bowl of edamame (well, technically mukimame -- they sell them shelled in little plastic tubs in the produce section sometimes), dressed with rice vinegar, soy sauce, and a little sea salt.
