What's for dinner #315 - Summertime... and the living is easy.

It worked out really well, considering it was totally made up. Boning out the hens is a little fiddly, but not that hard and you get a nice even flap of meat that works well for stuffing, roulades, balls, etc. Pretty tasty for a freezer bird too.

Midweek dinner for two out of the freezer -- the young athlete is having dinner with his roommate-to-be.

Nice cool evenings the past couple of days, so a respite from grilling. Guinea hen ballotine stuffed with sage leaves, ham & fontina. Sous vide then seared, served on a artichoke & white bean ragout. Remarkably good combination for a scrounge.

That must cut down the applicable recipes on that site by about two thirds. Exclude ground beef & mayo and you're down to 10%

Avocado on Sandwiches: Mash or Slice?

Slice, unless it's way overripe. If so, toss and get a new avocado.

Pre-searing steak before sous vide

Sous vide, pat dry & sear. Never understood the idea of pre searing sous vide.

Swordfish has a very narrow temperature window -- either over- or underdone is not good and it's about 5 degrees F between the two. With sousvide, you set the temp to 115f, cook for about 40 minutes and grillmark it for a minute a side. The fish can stay in the sousvide for at least another 40 minutes with no harm, which gives a lot of flexibility as to timing. Doesn't matter is you have different thicknesses either -- they all come out the same. I

I was referring to the 275 GTB/C. If the Facebook money is in the house, could do $50MM. Will absolutely blow past last year's NART Spyder.

FWIW, I cook and eat almost everything (you can look it up) and also loathe "fruit in my dinner". And almost anything made by Heinz, including their pickles.

Try rice flour in place of the wheat -- even crunchier

Fry me a river. The young athlete has returned home from a grand tour of Europe. He really "got it" and really made the most of this opportunty, as opposed to his traveling companions whose experience consisted of hrs working out in gyms, eating chain Chinese food and getting shitfaced in clubs & casinos.

The (requested) welcome home menu was "a mess of wings". Done -- Buffalo & Bangkok. Plus fries & cold PBR.

Great to have the boy back for these final few weeks before college.

Seafood Main Course for 8 That Doesn't Break the Bank?

Probably not suitable for the weather, but mussels are cheap and a no brainer to cook -- sauté garlic celery & shallots in a big pot, load in the mussels, splash in wine, lid on & presto. Lots of good bread & plenty of muscadet and you're all set.

You get wild rabbit locally? Very cool -- how do they differ from farmed ones?

When you have basil shrubbery (to say nothing of the oregano hedge) you need to use it whenever possible.

And the pasta came out well and slightly brothy.
