My usual Tuesday brunch, a crab omelet plus trimmings.  ;D
Mmmm!  :)

Here you go: https://dishingouthealth.com/butter-cauliflower-recipe/

Nice!  I cooked black bean quesadillas earlier in the summer and chicken quesadillas more recently.

My recent cooking was a meatloaf, and I tried my new onion dicer.  It really saves time!
Thanks for the link.  I'll check it out.

Meatloaf, so what do you top yours with?  Haven't made one in some time though I remember fondly enjoying meatloaf sandwiches later in the week.  My mom, if I'm recalling correctly, used to top hers with a combo of Heinz's Chili Sauce, a bit of brown sugar and also a bit of powdered mustard?  Haven't ever tried a hand-operated veggie chopper (other than a knife).  If I'm doing a lot of chopping or slicing, I'll used either a food processor or a mandoline.  I've cheated before when caramelizing onions using a food processor, but the results aren't as consistent as I'd like.

It is like a square lattice of blades and you hand press the vegetable through it.

I've seen things like that before advertised on t.v.  Does it work well on other veggies (if you have tried it yet)?

Not on potatoes nor tomatoes (but the manual warned about that) but yeah.  The key is some slicing is needed to not do too much pressing at once unless you're strong.

Breakfast is still several hours off, but for today I'm thinking pancakes, ham, scrambled eggs and coffee.  8)

Oh my!  Fit for a king!

No fresh fruit though?

Will have some yogurt with blueberries in a bit....probably something heavier later this morning (post-gardening).

Well thanks, but l have no royal aspirations ( though there certainly have been those willing to crown me... ). I'll think about some fruit for lunch.

Made a homemade beef stew. Delicious and filling.

Made with all local in season produce...... some from my own garden and some from the local market (green beans, green pepper, carrots, celery and celery leaves, thyme, red potatoes, Spanish onions, garlic).

Sounds very tasty!

Did you save any for me?  :D  And did you have it over rice, pasta, or???  And how do you make the sauce/gravy for it?  Liquids?  Any flour?  Tomatoes?  Wine?  Do tell.  ;)

Sorry for the late reply. No pasta or rice, just on its own.

Brown the stew meat after tossing it in flour, salt and pepper. That alone adds a little thickness to the sauce. Beef broth. No tomatoes but a small can of tomato paste, which I could have probably put only half of it. And no wine this time (last time I added wine and it was too boozy tasting for me).

Thanks for your reply.

A suggestion for you which you may or may not have tried in the past.  Double-concentrate tomato paste.  It comes in a tube and lasts forever; once opened, store in refrigerator.  It's very handy and you avoid using too much t.p., or wasting what's left in the can, or having to freeze it by the tablespoon in plastic wrap, etc.  There's a brand called Amore (Italian) which I really like and is easily available in supermarkets in the US.

They also make an anchovy paste one which I also use.   :)

PD

p.s.  Here, made a batch of spaghetti sauce last night with a nice green salad with tomatoes from my garden, and scallions.  I added olives to mine.  My friend who joined me in both dinner and watching the men's final at the US Open yesterday doesn't care for them.  Eggplants are coming in strong along with a modest amount of tomatoes, so I'll have to figure out how to use them.

Made a bit special breakfast today:  Broiled tomatoes with fresh basil and oregano, olive oil & s&p.  Omelette with a sauté of mushrooms, onions, shallots and parsley and some chopped feta....and a glass of oj.

Life is good!

No restaurant today, it's rainy and when l got off shift l wanted my bed.

So now, of course, sleep won't come. Since l hit Safeway otw home I've stocked the fridge to the point that l won't need to leave home until l had back to work Tuesday night.

I'll probably still go to breakfast tomorrow, weather permitting, and if l do chalk up  another crab omelet.  :laugh:
