We had salads and BLT sandwiches on brioche rolls. I also had made pie dough last night in anticipation of today being National Pie Day. However, Himself had a doctor's appointment today, was allowed to roam unsupervised, and wandered over to the Italian bakery shop near the doc's office. He came home with two huge lobster tails. They are best fresh, so pie will wait until another day.

So CG, lobster tails are some sort of pastry?

Yes, delicious pastries. The shell is similar to phylo, the filling is a very rich cream. I already scarfed down my tail; this photo is the half of his that Himself is saving for later.

I made a batch of a type of barley risotto, with some Italian sweet sausage from the freezer, and I also used a little bit of something else something else I have to use up - dehydrated eggplant! I always get so much eggplant in the summer that I dehydrate a LOT of it - just cut it into slightly larger than normal chunks, and put it in the dehydrator. a pound reduces to 1.45 oz. I just re-hydrate it, and use it in recipes like this, or curries and the like.

This dish also had some mushrooms - cremini and a little boletus - with some onion, garlic, rosemary, and the basil, added toward the end. I used some thin soy, as the salt, because I always use soy in mushroom dishes, as the flavors just seem to go together. It was delicious, and creamy, like a risotto, but I'm sure it will solidify, and I'll have to add water to the leftovers when I reheat it.
