    "Real nice" is a bit of an understatement...friggin' gorgeous is more like it.

    Agree 100% with BR, "real nice" is understatement. Love the plating, absolutely delectable.

    Gary,

    I have to ask: how messy (or not) was the ramen burger to eat?

    Would you do it again?

    C2,

    Not messy to eat at all, I ate the top bun first while dipping in chili oil and the sandwich itself open face.

    Do it again? For sure! I adore pan fried noodles. Its actually quite easy, ring mold, par cooked noodles, slow pan, oil, patience. A burger on pan fried noodles, whats not to love.

    Gary,

    How were the tomatoes? It's early but I've already had some good ones this year (and some not-so-good ones). I'm curious how the ones you bought at the Skokie Farmers market were. Btw, those plates all look delicious!

    Good, not exceptional. Yellow tastier than red. I made a special trip to the Skokie Sunday Farmer's market for tomatoes after seeing Andy Rickter's post on instagram. Corn, also bought there, was terrific.

    Tonight's dinner was supposed to be a shrimp boil. When one guest fell ill, we moved this to dinner tomorrow.

    Instead dinner was pasta with slow-cooked cauliflower, anchovies and garlic. I skipped drying and cooling the cauliflower after blanching, instead it was shaken dry and into the frying pan. I did do the 20-minute pan roasting, added a touch of rosemary and no chilis. I did not make the anchovie-garlic paste, because anchovies break up so quickly and easily. Breadcrumbs was Panko.

    Delicious!

    Looks like a good variation - dried shrimp are not terribly popular in my house. Doesn't help with the Kosher-keeping daughter-in-law though, probably need bonito flakes or something like that for her. What's the primary veg? Can't tell if it's green papaya or something else.

    Oh there's lots of dried shrimp in there too but I like to pulse them in the food processor before adding to the paste.

    And it is green papaya but shredded on a too dull box grader which gives a finer texture than optimal imo.

    Was at Mariano's on Elston thought I'd buy a Bell and Evans chicken breast and see if it equaled the glorious tasty juicy behemoth of a chicken <insert double entendre> from Joseph's Finest Meats . While checking out the breasts I noticed they had pre-coated in the case, tortilla (the counterman's favorite), panko Parmesan and one other I forget. I asked if they were Bell & Evans? Response, no, and if they were they would be 30% more expensive.

    I wanted air chilled Bell & Evans, and I could easily duplicate coating at home with better chicken, cheese, spices etc, so I opted for boneless skinless chicken thighs. Mariano's chicken breast did not sing to me, I like chicken thighs, plus I wanted to pan-fry.

    Short story long, I made pan-fried panko Parmesan Herbs de provenance coated chicken thighs with Granny's Kugel and mushroom gravy. Not photogenic, needed some color, but tasty.

    Tonight will be bean, bacon and ham soup. It will have carrots, onions, celery, bacon, ham and thinking about putting a few diced potatoes in too. And a few chopped tomatoes maybe just a can or two of diced. I will smash some of the beans so it is creamy rather than brothy. I am missing my soups and I am not fond of the soup bar soups. The Danada deli has not opened yet and I'm missing their cabbage soup. the pea soup, and bean soup. Soup season here and no soup.

    Thanks, I knew that, and was what I meant but did not specifically designate when I wrote "Mariano's chicken breast". Either way, Mariano's on Elston B & E breasts did not look all that enticing which is why I went B & E thighs, aside from simply liking that (chicken thigh) part of the chicken.

    Yesterday at JB Market (the Glenview Joong Boo), whole chickens were $1.49/lb, whole Amish chickens $1.99/lb. Did the upgrade, roasted a la Thomas Keller (just salt and pepper in a skillet at 450, add thyme to the juices afterward and baste off the heat), fantastic bird. I should have done two, one of each kind to see the difference.

    Okonomiyaki
    In the pan cooking in a combination of peanut oil and bacon fat. A few recipes I found online called for the inclusion of bacon strips in the pancake itself. That wasn't what I wanted to do but I liked the idea of incorporating some bacon flavor, so I used the bacon fat in the cooking medium.
