    Default Dinner

    Braised beef short ribs (red wine, stock, mushrooms, chopped onion,
    carrots, thyme, bay leaf, S&P)

    When it was done, I removed the ribs, chopped the meat, skimmed the
    fat from the cooking liquid, reduced it way down, added a spoonful of
    Dijon mustard, returned the meat to the broth.

    This I ladeled over bowls of shredded Nappa cabbage so the hot broth
    wilted the cabbage "noodles."

    Not bad. Took too long to cook and I should have wilted the cabbage
    slightly before it got the broth treatment, but on the whole it wasn't
    bad.

    Sounds very good indeed, if the weather's cooled down! I don't think I'd
    like it as well on a hot day.

    Lin and I had burgers. Lin grilled the (ground chuck) burgers, and in the
    last minute of cooking she melted gorgonzola on top of them. She also
    toasted the whole-wheat buns we used. I caramelized leeks and fennel
    together as a kind of relish. We had arugula, basil, and leaf lettuce as
    greenery for the burgers, along with a sliced CSA tomato. For more
    vegetables, I steamed vari-colored string beans and drizzled them with
    clementine-infused olive oil. I pan-cooked zucchini planks seasoned with
    savory. And I cooked a mixture of turnip greens and rainbow chard with red
    wine vinegar, a little sugar, salt, and red pepper flakes. We had a
    half-bottle of local Zinfandel to drink.

    Yup. It's been quite cool for Texas lately. Rainy, too.

    Sounds lovely. Tell me about the clementine-infused olive oil, please.

    Not much to tell: We bought the bottle at a kiosk in the Oxbow Market in
    Napa; the brand name is The Olive Press.

    Poking around online, I see they have a web site at www.theolivepress.com,
    and that particular product is
    http://theolivepress.adconn.com/cata...showitem&id=91

    I'm certain that we didn't pay $20 plus shipping for it at the market! I'm
    guessing it would be fairly easy to make; the "cuties" clementines are
    widely available in the winter.

    That sounds really good! I've not yet ever purchased short ribs.
    They've always been overpriced when I looked at them to date.

    While shredded cabbage certainly works, another noodle "substitute" is
    bean sprouts or thinly sliced or shredded zucchini.

    Believe it or not, shredded iceberg or romaine lettuce works too.

    These were marked down when I bought them. Full price is just too much
    to pay for short ribs.

    I've got something similar working - porkchops in the slow cooker.
    Tomato, onion, mushroom, spinach, an apple, a corn. tastes ok so far,
    but I'll probably have to tweak it a bit. Thinking about serving it
    over pasta. Rigatoni or something similarly hearty. But the broth is
    pretty thin and the big noodles will want gravy. Mostly doesnt matter
    - I'll play around. I like the idea of wilted cabbage "noodles". I
    usuallly just throw the leaf into the pot, but if I have a chance
    where presentation matters, that could be very nice. Thanks, modom.
