What I Cooked Today

I'm up north working for a week - away from my egg. Even my mini - which normally lives up here - is down south getting it's new handle and hinges. I'm in Egg withdrawl. But I still must cook.

Dinner tonight was ribs done using a recipe from the latest LCBO magazine - Sticky Oven Ribs. I changed things a bit - braising the ribs stovetop, using sweet smoked paprika in place of paprika and chipotle powder in place of cayenne. For the slather I replaced most of the molasses with honey, and fig-balsamic in place of the cider vinegar.

Not my best picture ever - but these were some tasty ribs considering they weren't egged.

I made the Smashed potatoes cooked in duck fat to accompany the ribs, as well as steamed some asparagus that was then garnished with butter and parmesan.

I also baked a couple of loaves of the Tartine Country Bread - one for tonight's dinner and a second to take to work tomorrow. My yesterday's attempt at this bread resulted in a couple of wonderful smelling doorstops that were binned as soon as they cooled.

To take to work this morning I put together the dough for Pierre Hermes Olive Sables - unfortunately in the store here in LIttle Current there were no oil cured black olives so I opted to use some nice pimento stuffed greens instead - it still works - they were gone by noon!
