So I dropped SWMBO at the airport this morning, she and SWMBO Jr. will spend the week in Durham with the in-laws. That means I get to play! I started today by making some salsa, vidalia onion, a poblano, and 2 jalapeños, with olive oil and salt and pepper. Then about a pound and 3/4 of Roma tomatoes with olive oil, cumin, and chili powder.

Got those on two levels, the onion and pepper on the lower, tomatoes on higher.

The things closer to the fire were done first, and went into the food processor, followed by the tomatoes about 15 minutes later:

Then whirled it around until the consistency looked good.

I'll use this to snack on this week, and maybe to sauce tomorrow's spatchcock.

    Then I started on the side, a quick salad. I tossed a bunch of green onion and 1/2 pound asparagus tips with olive oil, salt, and pepper.
    image
    Tossed these on the egg, raised direct, until the scallions had wilted and the asparagus was cooked, but still crisp.
    image
    I chopped the asparagus and scallion on the bias, and tossed it with some raw sugar snap peas (also cut on a bias), and a basic white wine vinaigrette (olive oil, white wine vinegar, Dijon mustard and 2 cloves of garlic, minced). It turned out really well.

    I don't think they can make it from Durham to Baltimore in hour.  I like a few days by myself, but if they could do this Wednesday, I'd be happy to see them!

    ACN, the whole cook look fantastic, but I am most intriqued by the tomatoes.  I am going to try that just to eat as a hot vegitable.

    How far are you from Dundalk? Meal like that, I could easily pretend to be visiting family and sneak over. Haha!

    I love brisket thin sliced like that, that's the kind of phó I get. I have a recipe for it, but I think there is no way I could make phó as good the Vietnamese family that owns the local place.

    Thanks all!

    @thatgrimguy - I didn't make the kim chee, although I've been eating a bunch of it recently (0 points on weight watchers) and my wife and I have talked about making our own sometime.

    @bys1981 - I'm about 30 minutes from Dundalk - it is on the southeastern side of Baltimore, I'm on the northwest side.  I agree - pho is one of those dishes that I will just go out for when I have the urge.

    @GeorgeS - I have an almost 7 year old daughter. I have more fairy stuff than I ever expected to in my life.

    @chainsaw19 - looks great, I love the grilled lime addition!
