2017 - Week 19 Cooking Results

White Park Steak (Lucky George) with Asparagus with Crumbled Bacon (or seared Prosciutto) and Balsamic Vinegar (or not)

Remember, Shannon doesn't particularly like steak, even strip steak.  Certainly a nice buttery flavor of the steak, clearly Lucky George is trying to find the right breed for their farm.  I liked how the roasted asparagus turned out as well.  I ended up just using crumbled bacon.

Roasted Green Garlic pesto w/ toast and and egg on it (stealing from Brett right here)

Salt + green garlic tossed in olive oil, roasted, then pureed with olive oil.  Then I took a side path, and decided to make burgers instead.  Pretzel buns + 15 Fields Irish Cheddar + bacon + hamburger fried in bacon fat + Green Garlic Pesto.  Good stuffs.  That turned out great.  Admittedly I was thinking about it for a good chunk of the day.

Ramp & Sausage Risotto

Ramps!  Yay!  I made extra so Shannon could have risotto leftovers, cause I almost never make risotto anymore.

Quinoa Pilaf with Scallions and Saucisson Sec (reference)

I made it to spicy.  I used jalepeno pepper powder, and just added to much.  My apologies to my wife.  That being said, I'm enoying the leftovers.  I like how filling Quinoa is.
