Who’d a thunk it!

Today, Labor Day, is actually my day off. And, for a change, the weather is cooperating. So I decided to do a semi-traditional meal. I’ve got three racks of ribs in the smoker, even as we speak.. These were put up my usual way: slathered with my own spicy mustard, and covered with my rib rub.

I believe I’ve posted recipes for both of them in the past.

Sides are a little less traditional. With the ribs I’m serving butternut latkes (basically, latkes made with butternut squash instead of potatoes), Moroccan Eggplant Salad, and Jicama Slaw.

Be still my heart!

Weekend September 9th: 


Now that "the extremities" of temperatures  have levelled off to  16 degrees Centigrade in the early early mornings and by 11am - 12pm  rise to 27 - 28 degrees,  it is an inspiration to get back to preparing shellfish  and fish,  once again ..

During the summers in Spain ( months without the Letter "R " which,  is an old historic adage, of not buying fish during these 4 months )  and so, availability is quite limited as there are regulations for spawning and protective measures .. 

Calamar, Squid, Prawns and a few Mediterranean varieties are available at good prices ..  

So, I am going to prepare a tiny Paella for 2 Friends who are visiting from  Northern Europe and then they shall be flying over to the  Balearic Islands before returning back to Northern Europe .. 

At their request,  I am preparing a Shellifsh Paella Marinara .. 


What is on the agenda for the weekend of the 9th  ? 


Have  a wonderful day ..

This weekend's One Of Those Birthdays, and my family's throwing an International Potluck. I can't wait to see (and taste!) what they come up with. One sister's making Ethiopian Injera.

It's snowy and cold so I'm making this in my slow cooker today.  I'm looking forward to it.

As I may have mentioned in the past, my days off are Monday & Tuesday. So that’s where our “weekend” falls.

Last night I made crab-stuffed haddock turbans with duxelle sauce. This was accompanied by sweet & sour red cabbage, and a clementine/red onion salad with cumin vinegraitte.

Stuffing the turbans took a bit of extra effort, but was well worth the finished result.
But we hae meat and we can eat
And sae the Lord be thanket
