Tuesday, May 31, what's cooking at your house?

We are having some of the foie gras that was part of my birthday present. Two preps, both seared. One will be on brioche toast with a port and balsamic reduction. The other will be on a fesh corn cake with a raw corn sauce topped with a dollup of citrus marmelade put thru a strainer.

My loaf of brioche is GORGEOUS and the cinnamon rolls with the rest of the dough look pretty darn good too.

The rest of the foie is soaking in milk and will be made into torchon over the next couple of days.

Oven roasted shrimp drizzled with garlic/lemon butter, marinated cold asparagus, and a fruit salad.

Just getting ready to start a quick supper - a North African chicken dish we've enjoyed (recipe from a Penzeys catalog), sauteed lemon-butter broccolini, all started off with a spinach salad (bacon, egg, black olives, tomato). We'll finish up the leftover cherry clatoutis for dessert.

Med, I must say that you often inspire me to learn more, and this is no exception. I've had foie gras once in a restaurant but would never think to do something as exotic as Torchon myself so I just had to learn more.

We had a nice lunch out so we'll likely just snack tonight.

This'll put a secret smile on your face. I made KL's Crack Slaw ( Cabbage Burger Casserole) for supper. (Wfd Feb 5 2016 )

Dinner Friday, 2-5-2016

Since I was fine chopping ginger, I made some steamed slant sliced carrots finished with a ginger brown sugar butter sauce too. My tummy is full.

Joey's dinner looks good enough to eat and then some.

KL, I was originally going to just try to make a half recipe, so there wouldn't be so many leftovers, but then I thought it was a little too humid to do math, so I made a whole recipe. Grated cabbage until my arm got sore, then I grated some more. I would eat a third helping except that would be impolite.

I bought a package of very thin 6 inch tortillas the other day, I think I will try some crack cabbage tacos tomorrow.
