We had guests for lunch and I made caprese salads, with tomatoes and basil from the greenhouse and cilengine (fresh mozzarella balls).



Also an antipasto platter with home-cured soppressata and pepperone, gruyere and white cheddar, assorted olives, and a sliced baguette. Bottle of Hawley Old Vine Zinfandel.

Bitzer, are you sure you're not a food artist? That's a gorgeous presentation, and very nice picture. Wish I had the talent, and camera for such shots.

Ta! I love composing a plate.

The camera is a 3-year-old Panasonic Lumix digital. Looking at a Leica review, I noticed that they'd bought the electronics from Panasonic, so I looked some more and saw that the Panasonic had optics from Leica and cost a lot less. It has a long zoom, good for wildlife shots. I do light editing with the resident Apple photo setup.

Leftover wagu bottom round steak, cooked rare, sliced very thin against the grain Homemade rotini noodles with 5-cheese sauce made from powdered extra sharp cheddar, 10 year aged cheddar,, brie, with the rind removed, Pecorino Romano, Parmesan Reggiano, butter, and a bit of the pasta water. Combine over low heat, stirring until silky smooth. Add 1 tbs. yellow mustard, 6 grape tomatoes, quartered. Add al dente noodles to sauce. simmer to cook tomato, and thicken. Place cold steak into a bowl, cover with rotini and cheese. Stir to combine. Serve with a lightly grilled baguette dressed with EVOO. It was like a deconstructed Philly cheesesteak, but with noodles, and added tomato. It was yummy.

I asked Mom if she would like some lunch this afternoon ... "No, I'm not hungry".
I asked DH if he would like some lunch ... "What'cha got?"

I also had the Hamburger buns from Labor Day still in the pantry.
I reheated the sliced Pork, spread Mayo on one side of the bun
and Pesto on the other; added sliced Tomatoes (for Mom, but not Moi), Romaine Lettuce,
S&P and Bob's your Uncle!

Really tasty! Nice and juicy, tender meat made in the Sous Vide cooker.
Let's remember this sandwich.

Today, for an early dinner or late lunch, whatever you want to call it, I made some Som Tum, with some julienned kohlrabi, instead of the traditional green papaya. I had to clean the dust out of my kruk, as I hadn't used it yet this year!

I used 3 Meteor peppers, and 3 Superchilis, and it wasn't as hot as when using my usual Thai peppers. Before using the Meteor, I tried a whole one, and it was a little bitter, but not as hot as the supechili, which aren't as hot as the Thai Vesuvius.

I eat most of it wrapped in a lettuce leaf, and this time some endive leaves, as that it growing even faster.

Great idea to use kohlrabi, and the lettuce/endive leaves! Love the pictures, too. I'll definitely try this.

Creamy Ham & Potato Soup with CI Skillet Rolls ala S&P
I must say DH said that the Rolls didn't taste the same as the
previous batches.
I did use a different Beer.
Usually, I use Trader Joe's Dark Beer, but today I used

Aaahhhhh! That's what made the difference!
Beer with Orange undertones versus the Malt-y.

Everything was tasty all the same!

A soup of blenderized tomatoes, slapper chopper fine diced broccoli stems, green and red peppers, onions, and thyme, oregano, basil, and a touch of salt. With ryecrisp crackers. Very refreshing.

Three leftover cheese burgers (homemade), minced. This was put into a pot with 1 cup water, 1 tbs. catsup, 3 tbs. smoky BBQ sauce, a tbs. Worcestershire Sauce,, 3 tbs. dark brown sugar, 1/2 onion, minced, and 2tbs. chili powder. Everything was heated until the onion lost its bite,, and a rich sauce developed, then served on hollowed our burger buns . Pretty tasty Sloppy Joe's
