Those are some nice looking dishes .

Tonight was beer can chicken. So good and easy (beats cooking pieces of chicken).

On Saturday, I was craving some pasta and was also craving scallops, but didn't want anything too heavy. I found a great recipe that called for fresh corn to be cooked and then pureed to make the "cream" in the sauce. My blend was on the fritz and my hand blend didn't do too well in getting it very fine, but this was excellent nonetheless, if not a bit "chunky." Lots of scallion and fresh basil, a little pepper flake, and some Parmesan...delicious. Went well with a 2018 Paolo Scavino Langhe Sorriso.

Looks great. What's your method for cooking the scallops ? My wife likes them well done on the outside , but not overcooked. Hard for me to find that balance

Thanks. I always rinse my scallops in cold water, rubbing the flat surfaces. If nothing else, it seems to remove any "fishy" flavor that might be there (which is rare anyway, but I still do it). Use room temperature scallops, then SUPER dry their surface, kosher salt and ground pepper right before going into a very hot cast iron skillet with just a little bit of canola oil. I give them a gentle "push" on top when I put them in the pan to make sure they're in full contact. On flip, I drop in a tab of butter and "baste" the up-side with the butter for several times with a spoon and the pan slightly tilted so the fat collects on one end. The side you see in the pic above was the side that first hit the pan, and then got butter basted to finish.

For lunch today we had duck ramen, almost entirely made from scratch and locally sourced ingredients.

Duck meat and broth is from leftover duck roasted for dinner the other night, sourced from a local farm. Eggs from the same farm, boiled and marinated ajitsuke style by my daughter. Chives grown over the past month in our backyard garden. Hand-stretched noodles.

@Brandon - running behind on this thread, but damn those are great scallops. I have a long history of searing them (and leaving the best part stuck in the pan), overcooking then until they’re rubbery or c) trying to prevent the former and coming out with half-cooked scallops. So, I basically suck at cooking scallops :)

Andrew/Lonnie, I think the most important part might be emphasizing how dry they need to be when you put them in the pan. I squeeze each one in paper towel and salt immediately before going into the pan. Cheers.

You can also try the one-side method. Leave the seasoned side down in the pan the entire cooking time without peeking under them or trying to move them, then take the pan off the heat entirely, flip to the other side and baste with butter (I like clarified butter for high heat) for maybe 10 seconds off the heat. You'll only get a crust on one side, which is the side you present up, obviously, but it gives you a little more leeway to get the balance between cook through and crust. It's really important not to peek or try to move them around - that's how you'll leave some stuck to the pan. They release in their own time.

Garlic Studded Monkfish with Fennel Cream Sauce. The sauce is almost entirely fennel, pureed with just a bit of cream and put through a tami sieve, so the dish is actually much lighter than it looks.

That looks tasty. I really enjoy sauces when the body of the sauce is from pureed veggies and not from just cream. We do a pork shoulder that we cook with veggies that we then puree with the de-fatted jus and it's so luxurious, even without any cream. Never done it with fennel, though.

Sous vide warm-aged sirloin with homemade Teppanyaki sauce (114°F x 90min + 131°F x 120min).

Made a huge batch of this sauce and froze portions. Nice to see it thaws without breaking.

Thanks! We're on a fennel kick. We love it, it's incredibly versatile - especially good with pork, btw - and there's always tons of it in the store, I assume because no one in this neighborhood knows what to do with it. :)

Saturday, Marjorie was bored, watching Cash Cab. A question came up to which the answer was tartar sauce, of which I had never been a fan, having been exposed to only commercial crap. They listed the 4 main ingredients, and I said to myself, “Self, you gots all of dem”. So with roasted snapper on the schedule for last night— the recipe they gave called for mayo, but I wanted to change it up. So— 4 oz of 4% Skir (or Greek Yogurt), 1 oz of mayo, 2 tbs chopped capers, 2 tbs chopped pickle, 2 tbs chopped shallot, salt to taste. Trés magnifique. Enough for 4 portions.

Buddy picked the file cabinet up for free and tried to set it up as a vertical smoker. Burned it out three times before doing his first cook, but I don’t think he understood some of the science behind air-flow and gave up on it. I drilled some holes on top to drive more air-flow, as well as the charcoal tin which was just a Weber drip pan. I dropped a sheet pan on top of the holes I drilled on top, as well as pulling the charcoal drawer out a bit, in an attempt to regulate air-flow. As you noted, super inefficient.

End of day? 90% story value, ribs came out great and we drank quite a bit of bourbon while cooking. Vacation is good.

Sous vide & deep-fried chicken breast roulade, roasted carrots, sous vide onions, vegetable gravy (squash, carrots, onions, celery).

Was having a zoom wine dinner with Philly friends last night, and was inspired to try one of the signature dishes from Blackfish byob (my favorite Philly area restaurant).

Teaching my daughter how to make fresh pasta. This is Chive pasta which we had with a roasted tomato sauce. Grilled steaks and grilled asparagus. Appetizer was brie and arugula pizza with balsamic fig glaze. Note the tropical storm rain in the background where said cooking of steaks and asparagus took place.

Andrew I agree. Too many different ways to show approval or disapproval. I drew the line at Snap and Instagram. FB and TWTR I can handle.
We have a goal this summer of her being able to do 12 dishes or so. I'm teaching her the fundamentals such as the mother sauces and incorporating into any dish. Pasta making is completely unnecessary, but it is fun and teaches you to play with your food so you understand what happens when you manipulate things. Taking semolina from rough and dry to supple and smooth just through letting the dough rest then putting through the rollers. Then cutting once it gets to the desired thickness.
