What's for Dinner #384 - The Isn't it Labor Day Yet? Edition

Tonight was International dinner night. Mediterranean pizza: Italian sausage, sauce, cheese, Spanish peppers, Greek Olives, shallots, garlic. Salad of corn, tomatoes, pimento peppers, onion, cilantro, oo and sherry vinegar. Padron peppers were mouth numbing, nose running hot tonight. The Yorkie cleaned his plate. Tequila before, Malbec with. Getz & Gilberto on the stereo. Dessert will be apple crumble top pie. Apples gathered under the watchful eye of mother deer and her fawn, sorry love these are for my pie. British telly after the dishes are done. Ok LW, keeping up with my International theme I'll finish up the Licor 43.

Pollo al ajilloi is a keeper. Sides were fried fingerlings and padron peppers, green salad with a creamy cilantro dressing. Tequila before, wine with. Smoke finally cleared out late this afternoon, up to an inch of rain predicted for this weekend. Woot, woot.

I just blistered some for dinner tonight, I think maybe the reds may be just a tad sweeter. One of the reds was super hot though.

Dinner tonight was grilled pork "tenderlion" with Tuscan seasoning, garlic and basil on a bed of grilled peppers and onions. COTC and Caprese salad. Tomorrow I'm going to try pollo al ajillo. I scored some red and green Padrón peppers at the FM today I want to have as a side. Just blister? Any other suggestions, it'll be my first time. Gracias

Could he have wanted to know if you were available?

cast iron skillets

I have four cast iron skillets in three different sizes, I use them almost every day. I've had them for many years. I don't do fried chicken or cornbread either.

I found this silly guy in the garden today. Dinner tonight was fajitas, grilled blsl chicken thighs, poblano & bell peppers, onions with pico de gallo & sour cream, salad of grilled corn, avocado, jicama, onion, cherry tomatoes & cilantro with a sherry wine vinaigrette . There was tequila. Dessert later will be an apple and Welsh cheddar, maybe I'll take a page from LW's book and have a wee dram of Cuarenta y Tres.

Don't know about cod, but I do Pacific snapper. I just douse in oo, chopped garlic and fresh herbs. I use one of those enameled grill trays with all the holes in them, so if you don't have one of those, I'm not much help I guess.

Her fawn ran off and hid, but she just gave me that "You really think I'm going to quit eating apples?" look. Hannaone, I found your smoke, I'd be more than happy to return it. WFD, spaghetti and meatballs, puttanesca sauce, panzanella salad and red wine.

What's for Dinner #382 - the Weather Gone Wild! Edition [through August 22, 2015]

I freeze all kinds of peppers, raw or sometimes roasted.

Fog is rolling in here too, hasn't reached me yet but the sowesterly breeze is feeling mighty fine. Dinner tonight, penne rigate with Italian sausage, corn, peppers, onion, garlic, oo, lots of fresh basil. Green salad with cukes and Sun Golds from the garden, red onion, olives, my Sun Gold vinaigrette and more fresh basil, garlic bread and red, red wine.

Hot, 89°, and hazy from a fire NE of us. Dinner will be tuna salad. The green beans are making a comeback, maybe a potatoless Niçoise. And there will be something tall and cold to drink. PS: credit nw with prompting me to google how to make a degree sign.

What's for Dinner #381- The Summer Doldrums Edition! [through August 16, 2015]

It pissed here this morning also, but it was much appreciated and made for some lovely art. Dinner will be the deviled snapper, curried cauliflower and cabbage/apple slaw

Me too, I can use Pacific snapper and my fig chutney.

Autumn, no, not ready yet. Call me at the end of September. Although the apples are ripening and dropping on the ground, I leave them for the deer, fattening them up for the neighborhood hunters. Dinner tonight will be grilled NY strip, cotc, green salad with lots of garden tomatoes and for dessert an encore appearance of the RBF.

This indulgence is all your fault, you know who you are. Dinner was cashew chicken, cauli rice and slaw.

It was easy peasy. I keep forgetting that last year I roasted Sun Golds, garlic & herbs in oo and when done ran through the food mill, bagged up and put in the freezer. I just used some of that pulp with sherry vinegar. I think it is delicious. The inspiration was a ghg post on last weeks #378 WFD. http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/1020565

I thought the sun was going to come out today. Went to town and saw a big strip of blue on the horizon, but it did not happen. Dinner will be grilled NY strip, cotc and a salad of greens, Sun Golds, avocado, red onion and a vinaigrette of Sun Gold sherry vinegar and oo. Will probably add black olives & capers a la ghg. There will be red wine.

Fresh tomato ideas

This is what I do, roast in olive oil, garlic and herbs and bag up and freeze. If I am doing cherry tomatoes I will run those through the food mill.

Something new to do with figs, fabulous, looks delicious.

What's for Dinner? #379 - The dog days of August [through Aug. 7, 2015]

No dog days here yet as we are still socked in. At least I do not have to water. Wfd: Grilled chcken thighs with chimichurri/green sauce, cotc and Pipirrana without the tuna and egg. Picked 2 dozen figs this morning so I guess it's no secret what dessert will be. My gratuitous picture taken several years ago that I had titled "Dog days of August"

What's for Dinner #378 - The Hot! Hot! Hot! Edition [through August 3, 2015]

Okay, thank you, sounds delicious. I was envisioning a vinegar made with tomato pulp or juice similar to the fig vinegar I made.

Socked in today, lots of thunder. Puttanesca sauce simmering on the stove. Will be served with spaghetti, breaded chicken cutlet and a green salad. There will be red wine, dessert will probably be figs, sour cream & brown sugar. And as a charter member of the "It's 5 o'clock somewhere" club a martini.

We are back to our wonderful 70s. Dinner was grilled pork tenderloin with fig chutney, grilled cotc and garden tomatoes with, yes, balsamic fig vinegar and oo. The chutney is excellent if anyone has an abundance of figs http://www.davidlebovitz.com/2012/09/...

What's for Dinner #378 - The Hot! Hot! Hot! Edition [through August 3, 2015]

How did you know it is 100 degrees here today? WFD will be a large salad with leftover grilled blsl chicken breast. The heat has caused all the figs to ripen at once. I'm making fig balsamic vinegar as we speak and if it is cooler tomorrow as predicted I'll make fig chutney. Some tall icy G&Ts will be on deck soon.
