    Grilled baby gem with ranch to start. Rice with Cantonese fish/shrimp paste stuffed peppers and aubergines drizzled with black bean sauce as a main. We are having some repeat dinners this week to use up stuff in the fridge before we go on vacation Monday.

    Our first dinner on vacation in Bologna. Ate at a traditional mom and pop trattoria. We shared the mixed veg antipasto followed by secondi and veg sides. Finished with shared panna cotta.

    Day 4 in Bologna on vacation and the first time we had pasta at dinner time. We shared the vegetarian main as a starter, and I followed with tagliatelle with ragu.

    Reverse seared steak finished with butter, garlic & thyme with pan fried potato, carrot & onion. After searing the steak we poured the remaining butter/herb mix over the vegetables. We also marinated the steak with a smoked whisk(e)y.

    Last meal in Bologna before heading to the airport. We shared the peasants vegetable side, and I had cappalletti with butter and parmesan. If you are in Emilia Romagna and want a cold coffee in hot weather a shakerato is great. Thats two shots of espresso shaken with ice with a tiny bit of sugar and topped with milk foam.

    We brought home a lot of charcuterie and a little cheese from our Bologna holiday. We weren't careful about checking sell-by dates and the two packs of smoked tuna need to be used up this week. I made a salade nicoise with one pack today. Will probably do sushi rolls tomorrow with the other pack. Any ideas for the two packs of smoked swordifsh slices that need to be used up before the end of the month?
