Adam is post-call this morning and I am taking my weekend day off so we get to share the same space for a bit, woo-hoo! We have some really exciting date options to chose from, like a grocery trip and maybe the gym.
I worked Saturday and Sunday – and was off on Friday but spent the entire day reading and/or watching tv – so I don’t have too much excitement to share this recap. We did go on a very delicious dinner date Saturday night though.
Cinnamon chocolate pudding.
Snowdays shaved ice! Black sesame with grass jelly, mochi, and strawberry sauce.
Yesterday I made a dish that was moussaka-adjacent. No potatoes but the other layers were there. Roasted eggplant / sauteed turkey with tons of onions, spices, and tomato / mornay sauce with parmesan.
And Saturday we did an awesome Israeli dinner at Timna. You select an entree and then the table gets all of the appetizers tapas-style. Also we ordered two desserts because we just couldn’t choose! It was one of our best meals to date. Falafel with pickled mango.
Kubneh bread baked in a flower pot served with crushed tomato, creme-fraiche, and jalapeño salsa.
Grilled beet salad with beluga lentils // tuna sashimi with green tabouli, tatziki, and ponzu // grilled cauliflower and artichoke with curried yogurt, homemade raisins, and pickled onion // smoked eggplant with feta cheese and sumac.
I had “the fish,” striped bass with cherry tomato confit, grilled zucchini, grilled fennel, fried eggplant, Greek yogurt, and bread crumbs. We loved the meal from start to finish but the fried eggplant was my favorite bite of the night.
Kubneh bread with creme patisserie, white chocolate, and honey and sage ice cream.
Sicilian pistachio ice cream with tahini, silan, and shredded halva. swoon
Back to the grind we go!
