Probably atop a salad. After cleaning VERY well, of course. :-D

I'd call it tangy/sweet/spicy, lingua. You can heighten the heat by adding more red pepper flakes.

Yeah, I figured the jaws on the pittie might not be amenable to what you wanted to do. LOL

And PERFECT with pill-filled potatoes. Hah! Momma always wins. ;-)

What's for Dinner #322 - the pre-Labor Day Weekend Edition

Last night - OUT. Early start to the weekend with a visit to Dali with a friend before the college kids and their parents invade during Move-In Weekend.

Short day at work today...most of the bigwigs gone, so we ordered pizza and were outta there by 2:00 p.m. I picked up some steak tips at my local butcher on the way home, and went a-hunting in my Mastercook software. Oh yeah! Here's another oldie-but-goodie marinade recipe I had forgotten about!

They'll be cooked on the grill pan and finished in the oven. Baked potato alongside (with butter and sour cream as toppers), and some CSA corn on the cob that I got earlier this week from the pickup from my coworker's CSA. A true end-of-summer (almost) meal. :-)

Oh - and Vodka & Lemonade as the libation. Perhaps some Cuarenta y Tres for dessert while I watch DVR'd Top Chef Duels from Wednesday night.

ETA: my "carrot harvest." They're supposed to be about 5" long. Next year, Farmerette Linda will know to follow the sowing directions on the seed packet. ;-)

~~~~~~~~~~~~
LLW Notes 5/06/01: Marinade has just the right amount of bite. The maple syrup and lime juice help caramelize the marinade when the kabobs are cooking on the grill, slightly glazing the meat and veggies.

Sounds VERY good, Gio! I hope G feels better. Give his bowl some extra ginger or sriracha to help burn the cough out of him.

(Mucinex works wonders!)

NW, if you need to without putting too much stress on her, try prying her mouth open a bit and toss in a painkiller towards the back of her throat. Clamp her mouth shut and stroke her throat until she swallows the pill. I can do that with my cats (the prying open is the hardest part) and it does work 90% of the time. :-)

Is anyone going to boycott Market Basket?

I stopped by the Main Street store in Tewksbury (not Store #8 where the rallies were held). Parking lot was jam-packed. Some dairy (butter, cheese in pretty good supply; milk and yogurt much less so); deli was minimal but did have some activity; meat/seafood cases were empty, as was the majority of produce. Anything that was frozen or canned was FULLY stocked; sandwich area and bread was minimal.

Staff was all smiles and appreciative of everyone in the store, and the store manager was getting handshakes from everyone he walked past, including me. My checkout cashier replied "We are SO happy to be back!" when I said "welcome back!"

Also went into Somerville for dinner, and the parking lot of the store on Somerville St. was also jam-packed.

This morning while driving past the headquarters, the parking lot was full to overflowing - and I mean cars were parked in non-parking spaces along the lawn around the pond in front of the building all the way down to East Street entrances. They're going full force to get the shelves restocked.

UGH! NW, so sorry you're doing so poorly! You and your baby girl need to get better together.

Top Chef, Season 12 will be filmed in......

HAH! Had to go a-Googling to figure out Bohnen. :D

Chowhound now allowing advertising posts?

Caveat #1: "Unless it is determined that we need ad-click revenue. Then? Shill away!"

I always use the hand guard when using my mandoline, so perhaps just when I'm chopping would I use the glove.

Hah! No finger cots; just a large square nonstick bandage that I wrap around the nail and finger.

Thanks all. It's doing quite well. This was a smaller cut than the one @ Thanksgiving 2011, so it should heal up more quickly than that one did. The finger guard remains off while at work; just for driving and sleeping to avoid smacking it against something.

Lingua's and Berheenia's knife glove is looking better and better. :-)

Nope, it's the third. Two times with the left forefinger; 1x with the left middle finger. Not *quite* an annual event. ;-)

And I probably should get one of those gloves, huh? :-/

I think this article in the Boston Globe online says a lot as to how quickly they'll get restocked:

So pleased to hear of the outcome last night.

Drove past the Market Basket headquarters this morning. The parking lot was packed with associate vehicles. Probably eight different news trucks there. Podium was built for Artie T. to get out there and speak to the associates at 8:30.

Cars were also honking at every Market Basket truck they saw on the road. The drivers all had HUGE grins on their faces.

Nope - just cut off about 1/3 of my fingernail. The metal finger guard is strictly to protect me from banging the finger against something.

I apologize in advance for any typos over the next few weeks. The Great Knife Incident of the Summer of 2014 occurred while chopping a CSA Cubanelle pepper for dinner tonight.

Two sweet Italian sausages were browned, and a small Cubanelle pepper, some CSA kale, and about a cup and a half of halved CSA cherry tomatoes were added, along with a half cup of chicken stock, a glug of white wine, and some Aleppo pepper. Simmered that to reduce the liquid and added some heavy cream towards the end.

Tossed the sausage and veggie sauce mix with some cooked penne, served it with some grated Parm-Reg on top. A glass of wine alongside; some Advil as a chaser.

The latest fashion accessory that everyone is going to want is pictured. :-)

Ugh! I do hope the overnight helps and she gets hungry overnight and is able to come home tomorrow!
