Second night was ham and cabbage (with Asian influences...sesame oil, rice wine vinegar, mirin), lightly sauteed.

    Everyone's work schedule has been wonky, so the ham has been there for sandwiches.

    Last night, I made cauliflower puree and rib-eyes (and I also had sauteed spinach in olive oil and garlic). I found a John Besh recipe for the cauliflower and wow, it was good. The three of us ate the entire thing.

    Now I need to go pull something from the freezer for tonight...I think I'll wait until I get my CSA so I know what veggies I have.
    OMG. Those dishes sound Wonderful!

    Nennie, what are brown beans?

    INthegarden, purple hull peas are my favorite!!!!!!!! They are difficult to find in my area too.

    Today is farmers' market day --
    We're making a dish from Cooking Light, but tweaked a bit to cut out some of the processed stuff that the magazine tends to favor.

    One of my local supermarkets will take 30% off meat that has the next day's date at 5 or 6 pm.
    If it is the same day expire ... they put a 50% off sticker on it.
    They usually put it in a "clearance" section ... but I search around because sometimes they miss some and the butcher will automatically make it 50% off!

    I hunt for the rib eyes and strip steaks!

    ETA: Oh ... dinner tonight is cabbage rolls made by a friend ... and last time they were just so-so. with a Caprese salad.

    I love them too.
    I planted two rows of them this year....twice... due to all the rain. We had the worse gardening year but I finally got the peas to grow.

    Stuffed peppers (got peppers in the CSA, flavored it with Berbere ("burr-bare"), used brown Basmati rice and mozzarella cheese).

    (Also in the CSA this week: tomatoes, eggplant, pickling cukes, eggs, two kinds of radishes, salad turnips, beets, Boston lettuce, and green beans. Passed on the bok choy, zucchini, summer squash, and kohlrabi this time...hubby's going to Rhode Island for the week for work, so my son and I will have eggplant parm, shrimp and garlicky green beans, and spaghetti aglio y olio. And probably quesadillas. I'll eat the beets for lunch.)

    I smoked a pork butt yesterday and made pulled pork out of it so I had that for lunch. It was really good.
