A simple, fresh omelet, fluffy and light, containing no more than fresh free-range eggs, salt, pepper and a splash of water, done quickly at high heat in organic butter scented with a little fresh ginger and garlic. A few scattered pale brown spots might still earn the wrath of a CIA professor, but I'll take the delicious taste of browned butter over an imaginary chef-instructor's rant, thank you. ;)

Sure, you'll have to bring your own dill, though. Or I could make you a dill pickle omelet, I guess ... :lol:

Roasted curried cauliflower, florets cut in thick slices, then tossed with onions, peanut and sesame oil, salt and pepper and Madras curry powder, and convection roasted at 400F for 25 minutes, turning twice.

Tuscan ham and Bean soup with some of my leftover Nueske's Applewood smooked ham ( god, it's good!)

Starting sourdough starter again. I've been trying to avoid bread baking for awhile ( I make good bread, then I eat it :roll: :) , but the weather and soup seems to demand beautiful crunchy bread.

I am so on the same page, Deb! Why does something as delicious and natural as bread DO that!? It just ain't fair. <sob>

Tonight I'm making a sirloin of beef with root vegetables. It is damn hard to find kohlrabi in this town.

I've seen it at Kroger and at Whole Foods, but possibly only in season. Creation Gardens? Or substitute broccoli stems?

Thanks Robin. We found it at Meier, but I was trying to stay local as all of my other ingredients were purchased from Paul's, Lotsa Pasta, or Kingsley's. And now that Creations Gardens is lost in the mystery that is the south end, I rarely venture out there...

Ronnie-
I will say that as I much as I complained about them closing the downtown retail store, I did finally place an on-line order with them for New Years. While nowhere near the pleasure of browsing thru the store, you can place an order by 11:00 for delivery to either Gyslain or Nanz & Krafts the same day,no delivery fee and there did not appear to be a minimum. They called to let me know one items was out of stock, and offered a substitution or to deliver that $3.00 item solo the following day. I was pretty impressed and will use it again for potentially hard to find items.

When it is in season and available from local farmers, Ron at the Root Cellar has kohlrabi. You can't get any more local than that, and since Kohlrabi is a late fall, and sometimes winter crop, you might have some luck. I know I've gotten some there recently (though I don't recall how recently), I believe it was grown on Ivor's Firld Day Farm. Pretty sure Whole Foods has it almost year round, again subject to availability, so in other months it comes from the southern hemisphere, if you choose not to go local. And since Paul's only has a tiny amount of truly local stuff, and Kingsley's and Lotsa very little too, why not give your money who walks the local walk instead of just talking the local talk?

Well Damn! Just got a note from Creation Gardens that they have ceased delivery for Retail customers- you need to go to their warehouse. There goes that option- permanently! :(

I got that too. I wonder what's up. I guess they weren't doing enough business to make the numbers work?
