I went to the Italian Market again, so the sauce for this is simmering on the stove right now:

Italian Sausage casserole w/ basil crumb topping

(Constance, freshly picked asparagus? Slow roasted pork loin? YUM!!!)

Grilled green chile sausage, batter dipped zucchini sticks, and chive cottage cheese. In the batter I put a half teaspoon of chipotle chile pepper powder. It gave the zucchini a nice little kick!!

very cool, i'm glad you enjoyed it abj. i stole the idea for it from "east", a japanese restaurant on w.55th just off 9th ave, next to the original location of the soup nazi.

i think i'll try adding a little sugar to the sauce next time. thanks. i usually end up sipping the leftover sauce because it's so good.
i'm also going to try using spinach, maybe with some sesame oil.

for us last night was our usual friday sushi/sashimi.
miso soups, salads with ginger dressing, veggie gyoza, dragon roll, salmon skin hand roll, sashimi deluxe platter.
the chef put a lot of shiso leaves in it last night. they were delicious. they must be in season.

alix, next time i'll save you some of the dragon roll. it's a california roll topped with overlapping slices of eel, a drizzle of eel sauce, and dollops of masago.

our cats were very happy last night there was so much.

Just save me some tuna sashimi and I'm happy. Although I'd take the dragon roll too!
