Pics or it didn’t happen
I’ll post some the next time I make them.
Ziti with sweet sausage, onions, and fennel. There is more sauce below but you can’t see it because it’s a wide skillet.
I’m gonna fucking pass on that fennel.
Not a fan? Today was my first time trying out the recipe. The recipe called for three cups of it but the amount I used ended up probably being closer to 2 cups. I’m kind of glad because it’s a somewhat powerful flavor.
Hearty beef ragu out of The Joy of Cooking cookbook. This is before putting it in the oven for 3-4 hours.
3 cups of fennel!?! Holy fuck bro.
Yeah. That was my first time cooking with it. I didn’t use any of the stalks at all. Once I took the outer shell off it was more like 2 cups. I was just following the recipe.
Oh jesus, I was thinking dried fennel. Derp
I'm not a huge fennel fan, but in certain arrangements it can be nice.
I thought it turned out decently. I think it would even be pretty good if you didn’t use the fennel. The sauce is essentially noodle water, caramelized tomato paste, and pepper flakes.
I just made a big spinach pie that is great left over, we'll eat it tonight and for several more days. Take a few sheets of filo and put it in a greased casserole dish, then a layer of thawed frozen spinach (squeeze the moisture out), then a layer of swiss, then another layer of filo. Brush this filo with melted butter containing nutmeg, then more spinach, swiss, and a top layer of filo with the butter mix.
Easy as shit, freezes OK after being made but it gets a little soggy.
I fuggin' love it! Roasted like other root vegetables, it turns nice & nutty. I like it raw, too though (apple/fennel salad comes to mind).
But hate black licorice
Same. Black licorice is the devil's vomit candy, but I like it both of those ways too.
Pork shoulder going on the smoker around 5am tomorrow to pull for dinner and leftovers. Hamburgers going in the smoker for about an hour for lunch with chicken breasts added later to use the rest of the week for meal preps.
Should be a nice day outside with the smell of cut grass and smoke in the air and some bourbon in the glass.
Uh, an even better idea would be to send some to me and @moxie!
