    I'm sort of overwhelmed, in the best of ways, with the challenge of using all of the produce that arrived in my first CSA delivery yesterday. Anyone have suggestions for good recipes involving red chard or golden beets (with beautiful leafy tops)?

    toss the chard in olive oil, sea salt and pepper and grill it. roast the beets and make a salad with goat cheese.


    roasted beet and grilled chard salad with goat cheese, candied walnuts and lemon vinaigrette.

    If I had beet greens right now I would make this pasta which is really great: http://www.foodandwine.com/recipes/f...-crazy-bastard

    cherry tomatoes, toasted walnut halves, beet greens and goat cheese tossed with pasta.



    edit: my stomach growled writing this post.

    Ha. Yes, it occurred to me this morning that I should probably invite some people over, so I did so. Impromptu dinner parties are the best.

    I have a fridge full of lettuce and golden beets and carrots and things from my CSA so I'm going to make a big simple salad. And I'll get a nice crusty bread. This is not a very well planned event.

    I am seriously considering making a spinach and grape leaf pie today. Except I don't know for sure if my favorite grocer will have grape leaves.

    bought a bunch of Hibiscus flowers in Egypt and made my own batch of Karkaday tea for the first time today. Karkaday. Drank all over the streets and in toasts at Muslim weddings and supposed to lower blood pressure. It's heavily sugared, so now you know why, along with the mass consumption of sweet mint tea, their teeth are so fucked up. SOme look like Enrique Eglesias until they open their mouths. Habbibi.

    That is an amazing looking pie. Wow! As for the beets, I like to slow roast them in the oven with some salt, pepper, and olive oil (sometimes with a bit of truffle oil as well), and then top them with crumbled creamy mild danish blue cheese.

    I made butter a few weeks ago. It's tough to cut when you take it out of the fridge.

    I made mashed potatoes last night with some of that butter, milk, and garlic salt. Turned out very good.
    We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.

    We need to have a traveling meal group for this year's festival.

    Show up at my pad for appetizers, move to the next spot for . . . Etc. We could do a breakfast version.

    I corned my first brisket this past week. After 8 days of marinating in pickling spices and brine, it is now in the slow cooker on high for 1.5 hours, then reducing heat to Low and another 3 hours (4 lbs cut). I may do a glaze of brown sugar and Dijon mustard at the end. But, considering this is my first time doing it, I think I'll let that go and instead focus on the quality and tenderness of the meat. I'll post a photo once it's done (and provided I didn't blow it)

    Yea, the recipe I used called for 5 days. Then I read an Alton Brown recipe that said to go 10 days. I split the difference. The brisket was actually 7 lbs total. I cut about 4 lbs to do now and then stuck the rest in the freezer where the pickling should hold it up just fine. From there I debated on what I would do with it. I picked up a loaf of Jewish Rye and I'm thinking just some straight up deli style sandwiches with pickles and side of slaw is the way to go. Any leftovers, I'll chop up some potatoes and onions and do hash. I also have some red lentils I'm soaking. Plan there is to de-grease the fluid I cooked the beef in and use it for a stock to make soup.

    I'm in downtown LA. Come on over! Seriously though, no problem if folks want to get together for some home cooked food. I'm big on that stuff. Actually have a shindig tonight with my neighbor downstairs. French wine from a purveyor in my building and hors d'oeuvres.

    I used to cook for a living in another life. Now I just do my thing. Lately I am into pickling and am using a variety of dried peppers in my dishes (there's a great shop for them at Grand Central Market). I also went a bit wild and picked up a few pounds of Hatch chiles during this latest growing window for them. I've used most of them. They make for a dynamite Chile Relleno! An easy recipe there is blacken the skin of the chile, peel, slice down the middle, de-seed, stuff with Mexican melting queso, dredge in flour, take 2 eggs and separate whites, fluff the whites, add 2 tbs of flour to the yolks, blend, fold yolks back in with whites, coat chiles with batter, fry in hot oil. YUM!
