    I am the weekend cook. Tomorrow we have friends who want to learn how to do California hand rolls, which we will cook together. Protein will be surimi sticks, poached prawns, tamagoyaki and raw tuna. Doing miso soup with that. Ice cream with miso caramel sauce, dehydrated sweet potato shards and roasted sesame seeds for dessert. We have a small Japanese grocer around the corner so we will pay a visit while the sushi rice and tamagoyaki are cooling.

    A late summer salad: quinoa, roasted buttercup and cauliflower, the last of the garden tomatoes, avocado, baby spinach and Greek halloumi. Seasoned with pepper, a salt and herb blend and a splash each of balsamic vinegar and olive oil. 06n9e6um0f7r.jpeg

    Fettuccine, mushrooms, garlic, butter, kale.
    So simple, so damn good.

    Careful--you'll become Italian. :D Living here I learned to cook from my mother-in-law and her sisters. It was a stitch because they were all widows, short and dressed in black. I'm a tall, blonde, Polish American. They come from Puglia in Southern Italy. They cooked simply with quality ingredients. I learned to cook simply.

    Risotto with leftover scampi and the sauce I made from boiling the shells, heads and claws and straining to get the liquid, EVOO, broth, saffron, black pepper, a little milk, and freshly grated Parmigiano Reggiano.

    @Safari_Gal_ Sounds yummy! how did you make the crust? Ingredients/amounts? What temp did you bake at? Is chicken already cooked?

    I see that you use Parmigiano Reggiano frequently......I do too..it's delicious! In the States it's on the expensive side, but well worth it.😋

    It's the gold standard here in Italy. Prices depend on how long it's been aged.

    Come on over. I am a feeder.

    That dessert by the way is vanilla ice cream, miso caramel sauce from this recipe

    toasted black sesame, a few bits of chopped candied ginger, dehydrated spiralized sweet potato. Next time I will replace candied ginger with a little crumbled halva.

    I normally only cook on weekends because I have the corporate job and the hubby is a freelancer. Now that my employer has everyone working from home I will probably start cooking during the week. Tomorrow's plan is reverse seared sous vide steak. Will warm up some batch cooked gratin dauphinoise from the freezer in the air fryer. We have some sweet potatoes lying around that we can roast those in the air fryer at the same time. There is a romaine we could grill as char grilled salad works well with steak.
