    Gnocchi with prawns, cherry tomatoes and red hot chilly pepper. I cooked the prawns (100gr-71cal) in the pan with just a bit of home made extravergine olive oil (4ml-33cal), garlic, cherry tomatoes and a bit of red hot chilly pepper. In another pot I boiled the gnocchi (250gr-400cal). total calories it is about 530 cal (I didn't check the cherry tomatoes and garlic). Really tasty and I feel full :)

    A Peruvian chicken recipe from the NYTimes https://cooking.nytimes.com/recipes/1018974-peruvian-roasted-chicken-with-spicy-cilantro-sauce . I only used half of a chicken because I am one person and I didn't add the feta to the sauce. I ate it along with a baked sweet potato - the sauce also tastes very good on that (frankly it'll taste good on anything).

    Classic dish for a downpour-rainy, cold, January Saturday evening here in NJ USA: slowcooker roast, potatoes, carrots, onions, side salad (not pictured). Haven't yet computed the MFP macro counts on this, but reducing the potatoes percentage while boosting the carrots helps with keeping a lower glycemic load.

    Roast turkey! I added a ton of rosemary this time and it was great!
    If you don't already do this, separate the skin from the meat with your fingers and slide herbs between skin and meat. Really ups the intensity of herbs on roasted fowl.

    Pasta (mezza maniche) cooked al dente, with smoked wild salmon in a cream sauce with Parmigiano Reggiano.

    Last night pulled pork and broccoli (boiled slightly--I like it bright green and firm) with EVOO and salt.

    Ok went a little crazy on the artichoke love today. I found some fresh baby artichokes (carciofi) from Egypt at a lil market.
    (And I didn’t take a photo! Dah!)

    Was seriously craving my Grandmother in law’s Carciofi alla Giudìa and Carciofi all Romana. So I made both! I think the artichokes we grow in Rome in our backyard are a little more tasty in the spring —- but I’ve still never met a artichoke I didn’t like!

    I've lived in Rome for 33 yrs and there are not many backyards. Where do you live?

    Wow. Carciofi all Giudia is great but way too labour intensive for me. I've only eaten this at restaurants. Just looking at the instructions for how to clean them makes me tired. Kudos to you.

    Hi Snowflake! Hi neighbor!

    We own a building in Trastevere. (Also in Flaminio and off the Appia Antica by the catacombs / our main residence is in Trastevere though when we aren’t in NYC. ) We have little courtyards in all of them.. but my husbands Grandmother’s house south of Viale di porta ardetina has some substantial land around it. It gets some lovely sun all year round.

    Are you familiar with Trastevere? We are close to Ponte Garibaldi.

    What neighborhood are you in?

    @acpgee - I’m still trying to perfect the crispness! My quest continues..

    My MIL flash fries them ... there is a restaurant not far from us that makes it so perfectly ....I could eat the whole plate.
