Since I'm not getting out of the house very much, I figured it was a good time to fire up our little deep fryer. Very happy with how the corn dogs turned out.

Professionals, please do not laugh (too much) at this clearly amateur effort. Been trying my hand at French-style omelets lately. Earlier this week I got a pound of garlic chives from a local farmer/friend, so the past few mornings it's been chive omelets . . .

Tedium is really beginning to set in. That, combined with the extra time on my hands, led to this . . .

Yeah, don't judge me. Those are a couple of Nathan's hot dogs wrapped up inside the omelet. My son was quite happy to wake up and find (most of) this on his plate this morning.

So far today, it’s all about the little cooking chores...setting up for the week ahead.

Thankfully there is an orange tree in the yard where I am stuck. First project...gathering and squeezing...

Love this oil for pizza. I spend part of the year in France, where every pizza truck around the Mediterranean tosses in packets of hot oil with your pizza, and pizza restaurants keep bottles of the infused stuff on the tables. Peppery, herb-y, it can make a great pizza better (IMHO) and makes a pedestrian pizza more interesting. Later this week I’ll make dough, bake a crust with only mozzarella, toss on fresh wild arugula and sea salt, then drizzle with the oil.

I usually bring back dried packets of the pepper and herb spice mix to just plunk into olive oil and let develop. Today I’m trying it fresh thanks to a template from the NYT. Olive oil, Japanese peppers, rosemary, thyme, fennel seeds, crumbled bay leaves. Warm to the point of a sizzle, cool and bottle.

Was finally able to use the sauerkraut I started a few weeks ago -- along with some homemade pastrami -- in some reubens last night . . .

My coworkers wondered why I butchered all the halibut before they got in for the day - here's why!

How would you prepare them?

Damn, nice! Maybe a brief marinade in miso+sake+mirin+sugar and then under the broiler for a few minutes?

I don't think to take pictures normally. But I do have a couple from some recent dishes due to some Zoom call interests.

A pork taco with beans, quick-pickle radish, and chipotle-lime sour cream:
Roast chicken and veggies:
Korean-style braised short ribs with daikon and bok choy over rice:
Quinoa and herb salad with chicken:

Having pretty much everything I needed in the pantry/fridge/freezer, it was the availability of leeks that prompted me to make a batch of Mapo Tofu for dinner this evening . . .

Love it - I keep a few different olive oils with herbs/galic/peppers in the kitchen at all times. Started years ago, but got more into it when Stephano (Sicilian guy) kept adding new bottles to my kitchen - I think I have 7 different bottles on the counter rigso I'm gonna try the oil ht now and a few more in the cupboard. Have one with Ghost peppers, garlic, and herbs for the brave - it's way too hot for me so only a couple of neighbors ever use it. We are having pizza some time this weekend (got some tuna and veg at the market today, but we are probably going to a place where I can get a crawdad poorboy tonight if it's not raining), and SO wants a pizza from a place that we have never been - so I'm gonna try the oil on pizza - thanks
