Saturday Night's All Right for Eating! Aug 16, 2014

I get a newsletter from a local restaurant about their weekend specials, and I'm making one of them at home, modified a little according to what I have on hand Jumbo shrimp sautéed with garden-fresh Roma tomatoes, zucchini, onions, garlic and capers in a white wine-butter-parsley broth, over fettuccine, with pesto-tomato crostini. I don't need a salad with this, right?

Dug a couple of filets mignon out of the freezer. They will be pan roasted to medium rare and served with baked potato and steamed broccoli. I have a nice chilled Sam Adams Boston Lager to wash it all down. Later on, some milk and cookies for my delayed dessert.

I finally used up the last of the ham and made hashbrown casserole with ham stirred in. We have salads to go with.

Yummy sounding meals, everyone.

I'm trying to use up things from the freezer so I dug out the last of the frozen Swedish meatballs and mashed potatoes from last month. Will probably make a throw together gravy, make a salad, and call it good.

Taxlady, Stirling, the DH, and I had a late lunch at the farm. I made my version of this Swiss Chard tart with a whole wheat crust, served it with a tossed salad dressed with EVOO, some of my homemade cherry vinegar, S&P, and a bottle of red wine:

Recipe Details

The leeks and chard were from the garden; the eggs from the girls. And of course the salad ingredients were from the garden. I used Asiago as well as the cheeses in the recipe. Added freshly ground black pepper and dried basil to the crust. I used four large eggs and 300 g of ricotta since I was using a spring form pan instead of a pie pan. Blind baked it for about 10 minutes before filling it. Simple food at the farm, good company.

I've actually made that that recipe before and liked it. What did you think?

This is the third (maybe fourth time) I've made it. I really like it with the whole wheat crust in a spring form pan. The first two times I made it with regular crust.

I tend to like to use rhubarb chard instead of just green chard. I've made it with green onions when I haven't had leeks. I've also added bacon. I like it warm (and cold). It is a TNT recipe.

LCBO Food and Drink has excellent recipes. I have yet to make one that hasn't work or that I haven't liked.
