On a pantry shelf. Temptation lurking.
While working on the upcoming (July 2018) People at Work show, I found this favorite in the archives. The Gridiron Grill at Heinz Field.
Red beet fries. Just around the corner, I saw a painted sign on the glass window of Schoene-Burger and asked my son if he’d get some to try with me sometime. Tonight he came home after work with an order of Beet Root Fries. Still hot.
They were delicious.
Hmmm, what can I find to shoot for the MarchSquare challenge? I was looking around my house. Ah. Spotted one of the little covered square butter dishes my friend Joanne sent me. With a bit of Irish butter in it. My grandmother’s butter knife.
If you want to check out more squares and squares within squares and circles in squares here’s Becky B’s “It’s Nearly Over” post with lots of links
Mushy Peas. Never ate them or even heard of them until today. We were browsing in World Market. I’m sure making them at home is superior to the canned version. A recipe below. Hoping blog readers who are familiar with them will leave a word.
Looked up Mushy Peas on Wikipedia
And here’s a link to Jamie Oliver’s recipe for fish and chips and mushy peas.
Lunch on Friday afternoon in Ohio. Granddaughters Anna and Maura each made a grilled cheese sandwich, plated them with a garnish of fruit and served the sandwiches to me.
I was to eat half of each and cast my vote for the winner. Yikes. Anna’s wasn’t quite as grilled as Maura’s but she used garlic butter and that was unexpected and delicious. Maura’s was thicker with cheese and toasted nicely. Mmmmmm. I ate a half of each but I declared it a tie. They said my verdict wasn’t allowed. It was not quite Iron Chef but it was fun. They kept jockeying the plates so I’d sample their efforts first. Anna selected her dad’s favorite mug to serve the oj. Nice touch. I loved them both and it was a great lunch.
A delicious lunch with a nice friend on Wednesday. Amel’s Restaurant describes itself “Homey Mediterranean & Middle Eastern eatery” –
I had the Butternut Squash Tortellini with Sage Butter and Pine Nuts and an Amel’s Salad.
For dessert our server went into the kitchen and chopped up fresh baklava and mixed it with vanilla ice cream. Oh my. Honey syrup, walnuts and flaky phyllo and a smidgen of cinnamon perhaps?
So refreshing. We shared one order but I know I could have eaten it all by myself. Oink!
Cheri Lucas Rowlands at WordPress challenges bloggers to post a photo of something (or someone) sweet.
Vincie brought the foil wrapped Betsy Ann chocolate balls (made in Pittsburgh) to the House Concert and Molly brought the Sarris Candies (from Canonsburg) for Valentine’s. Sweet!
I think the bright wrappers make it inviting to unwrap them.
