Because I have to share my food porn over here if I'm sharing it other places. This is what a perfect donut hole looks like. (It did not survive more than several seconds beyond having its picture taken.)

It's been too hot to do serious cooking so last night I made Thai lettuce wraps with grilled (and brined) shrimp, homemade sambal olek and nuoc cham, shredded carrot, cucumber, vermicelli noodles.  That sort of thing.

 

Tonight we are grilling again.  We are having grilled thick-cut bone-in pork chops with a Greek-inspired wet rub, roasted Greek lemon dill potatoes and Caesar salad with homemade torn croutons and unctuous dressing with anchovies et. al.  Maybe grilled halloumi if my husband picks some up.  Oh, and I nearly forgot - grilled Parmesan, chipotle and lime corn on the cob.  Not fresh from the garden as the corn in these here parts is about 6" tall.

 I live in an area full of immigrants and we have more than half a dozen hispanic markets here and in the next city over... I still had to call 4 before I found one that isn't out of fresh guavas. <_< I actually had the store by my house tell me they could order guavas for me for $7.99 a lb. I told him I'd think about it. Are these people aware that there are all these hispanic markets locally selling the same thing for 1/4 of the price?

 

I stopped for milk while I was out and found fresh local corn so corn on the cob is for supper, with a pork loin. I could still kiss whoever thought up cooking those suckers in their bags. I'll probably make myself some mashed taters because the potatoes in the pantry are looking like they just sat through a week of 100+ degree weather that the A/C didn't quite do enough for. At least they're mostly gone. (Note to self: just because 15 lb. bags of potatoes are cheap, does not mean you need 15 lbs. of potatoes.)

Made it to fireworks -- up on the rooftop...we can see several coast displays...IF the smoke gets blown out to sea -- ah ya -- this is kinda like ol' puxatony phil -- the smoke rarely gets blown out to sea -- yet to be up on the roof while my men are trying not to blow injure themselves with short fused fire crackers is something I have missed these past 4 or 5 years -- was a blast -- especially like the patriotic music in sync to the fireworks...guess i should check if there is a music sync to our nightly display from SeaWorld!

 

Tonight is steak and asparagus and those little cheese bread ball deals that Addie posted awhile back -- strangely I am graving little round dough balls for some reason today ;)

 

Tomorrow we'll have about 30 young adults for burgers &/or vegan chili -- son is hosting yet another house show -- this time ALL acoustic for two reasons 1) to give our poor neighbors a break 2) he knew it was too soon to ask me for another plugged in show -- smart kid!

Thanks for the birthday wishes *feels special* :wub:

 

Tonight we're having creamy vege pasta made with coconut cream, pumpkin, zucchini, tomatoes, mushrooms, capsicum, onion, sweet potato and chives, using San Remo rice pasta spirals.  No idea about tomorrow night.  It's the last night of the Winter school holidays, although it's far from cold here, I'm in a singlet and shorts at the moment and it's mid-winter.  Was thinking of "bangers and mash" with the gfv sausages we bought the other day.

So I went to the kitchen to make start dinner and it seemed dark. Then I looked out the window at the thermometer and noticed that the sky was BLACK! It was still about 90 then. In the space of half an hour the temp dropped 25 degrees and it rained some. (People here probably thought the sky was falling, but I grew up where it rains, this didn't look like it could soak a person in under 3 seconds so it wasn't pouring.) Most impressive was the thunder and lightening. It only lasted about half an hour but the storm passed right over us and it was enough the for a good 10 minutes in the middle of the storm the house kept shaking with every crack. I guess somewhere deep down I have sympathy for people afraid of storms, but I was just loving every second of it. I went out when it was over and enjoyed some time on the back steps smelling the rain and the whipping wind blowing. (It only took 5 minutes for the steps to be dry, love the desert!)

 

I even still managed to get dinner ready on time! I did baked instead of mashed potatoes due to the lack of effort needed. They got crispy just fine with a little appropriate TLC.

I went to the farmer's market today and found beets with their greens still on them. Not a particularly common occurrence around here. I thought I would give the greens to my bunny, but have decided to see if I can tolerate them. I haven't had anything green and leafy besides plain old lettuce in a year and it is making me crazy. I'll probably still give the bunnikins at least half, spoiled princess that she is. I also picked up fresh corn, some green onions, some fresh basil (because I kept talking about planting some but apparently I'm all talk) and some honey sticks for the hubs. There was also a food stand with ice cold San Pelligrino! I indulged, because I really do think it is a crime against humanity that every store in two cities seems to have Perrier (ew!) but not San Pelligrino cold.

 

So tonight for dinner will be recycled pork roast (see, I'm not calling it leftovers!) with roasted beets, sauteed beet greens and corn on the cob. As long as all goes well with the greens, I'll be into my homemade mint chocolate chip ice cream for dessert. (Which is also what is for lunch.)

.....that's because they are encores !  (or I guess, "recycled"  is okay) Leftovers just sounds so "sad" to me.

I admit to liking Pellegrino water and occasionally, I have seen cases of it on sale at BJs. (not sure if you have access to one of those?).

or 12-packs on a ma zon for a reasonable price.

 

I love beet greens (well,  ALL greens, really) and I hope they agree with you now. :)

 

Have not been around much the past few days, but I see you all are eating well. That's good.

 

As  some of you know, a close friend died suddenly on the morning of the 4th and I am still reeling. :unsure:

I occasionally indulge in a whole case from Costco when they're on sale. My husband thinks I'm spoiled, I tell him I just like the good stuff. :D I generally stick with the bottles, because I have no business drinking the flavored ones with citrus juice in them. I was pushing my luck this morning with a blood orange one, my favorite! It didn't disagree with me though so it looks like those are in my safe citrus limit YAY!

 

Your pizza sounds like heaven. I'm almost drooling on my computer.

 

I make sure every day I do something fun. It doesn't have to be spectacular, like last night it was just simply enjoying 10 minutes out in the rain cooled air. Idk, a meteor could fall out of the sky tonight and land on my bed. I decided at the beginning of this year that I got robbed too much with this stupid disease and I could die tomorrow of some senseless tragedy or plain stupidity. I won't go with regrets, no matter my age. ^_^

 

(((((hugs))))) have some more hugs, you probably need them. :wub:

This sounds like me when I had to give up cheese. I wasn't so pissy about all the other things, but cheese? You have got to be freakin KIDDIN me! I thought nothing of going throw 10-15 pounds of cheddar, 5-10 of mozzarella and 5-10 of assorted other cheeses in a month. For two people! And I was probably eating 3/4 of that, if not more. I never considered my cheese habits to be a problem. :P All I wanted for a month was to stand in the kitchen, stamp my food like a toddler and yell "I want macaroni and cheese!" and pout accordingly.

 

I've discovered now that fresh cheese and I can be bestest buds. I eat fried queso fresco, fresh sliced mozz, ricotta and have discovered a whole new love for goat cheese. I had goat milk once and it was nasty, so I assumed I'd hate the cheese... never been more wrong in my life! You do learn to adapt once you learn what cheese will be your friend.
