    Those were amazing. I cut 2 off the rack of eight the night before because I had some leftover dim sum from lunch and popped them on the hibachi for a "warm up". They were even less cooked than the rack, truly rare, cool center and it was like lamb sushi!

    I want some!

    A grocery chain here (Raleys) has a craft bread with olives that is just wonderful and a regular for us when they have it (sells out quick). Yours looks better.

    Raley's Sheepherder Bread! Damn, I miss that!

    The quality of produce here in FL is very sadly lacking. Even the oranges aren't that good and the corn is a joke. :unamused:

    Surely there is a farmers market near by? Whole Foods? Natural grocers?

    Bread is free, but shipping is $100. :tonguewink: My sourdough starter had its first birthday last week, and I haven't bought a loaf of bread since I got it.

    I cook and bake for Mo and me. Anyone who wants to be a chef or work in the food business is welcome to it. Cooking for two enough effort for me. Tonight's menu is spaghetti with broccoli rabe and sausage. :sunglasses:

    John my post was directed at Dan, bemoaning a lack of shopping options.

    not directed at you out your culinary bonafides.

    I misunderstood Carl, sorry. I thought you were suggesting that I sell my wares, something I'd never consider. It has been a great hobby during my bum-hood, I mean retirement. Tasty too. Thanks for the pasta recipe.

    One thing about being stuck inside and nothing to do is that I get to cook for a change.
    Made pizzas for dinner tonight. Cast iron skillet pizza with FWSY’s Overnight White base dough and some homemade sauce from tomatos we canned from my MiL’s garden. 97506BF9-42A1-4CC1-A57F-75BB85BF7F76.jpeg 5E24A9C8-9AC6-440C-A8AC-3AC246D5D4C7.jpeg

    I've been cooking too. Made pizza last night, and tonight it's risotto rice cakes from last week's leftover. I add a couple of eggs and more Reggiano to the leftover risotto, make 4 oz balls, roll them in panko, flatten into hockey pucks and freeze. I fry them in evo and butter, with a little salad. Yum.

    One of my favorite jokes. Variations I like include "What's the hardest part of smoking a chicken? Finding rolling papers big enough."

    John that left over risotto sounds like a arancini. I ate a lot of that as a kid. Gnocchi was smashed down and quick fried too. Nd don’t even get me started on chicken feet or pigs feet. Gawd I hated that. My grandmother thought we were all spoiled young Americans.

    Survival rations for coronavirus lockdown. Fresh chimichurri. Lasts a long while in a good jar. Put it on...everything.
