Roast veggie burritos - roasted carrots, onions, and potatoes. Homemade salsa, plain yogurt, and pickled jalapenos.
the rest of the potatoes go to Syracuse style salt potatoes. I took some belly pork slices, hit them with my usual dry rub mix,and let them go low-and-slow. Broccolli florets will go in the oven for the last while to finish the meal. (3/4)
I made a medieval inspired erbolat using puff-pastry, the broccoli stems (run through the food processor), some bacon, and eggs lightly beaten with a little cream. Probably an onion, too.
I'm getting my hummus variations dialed in. This version was roasted butternut squash, chickpea (gram) flour, olive oil, cumin, salt, lemon juice, tahini, and a few red pepper flakes.

A menu planning thread ... our box from Riverford this week had potaoes, carros, onions, fennel, butternut squash, black kale, radicchio, and sweet corn. We also had some broccoli ... let the planning commence.

The other day we shot some footage for a cheesemaking tutorial for an upcoming #sca event, and at one point I mentioned that you didn't need a huge cheese press. I pointed at some empty plastic cream thingies and said you could use those.
A week later, here we are - tarragon in one, sage in the other. Herbs from our garden, by the way ...
So, fifteen-ish years ago, I did an #SCA Coronation feast from late Roman sources, mostly Apicius. A few days ago, Legonium, a Latin by way of Lego Twitter account - https://twitter.com/tutubuslatinus - posted a comment about Moretum, attributed to Virgil, which I had made for that feast. As it happened, I had some home-made cheese handy, and plenty of celery leaf in the garden. The garlic wasn't mine ...
