Sometimes it's almost too easy to use large quantities of vegetables from the biokiste:

The nice head of escarole in the biokiste was calling out for beans and greens, but since I was going to be on a plane the next day, it mutated into something else.

This was going to be a succotash, but then it changed. :-)

I made a batch of risotto to go with the leftover pork roast: olive oil, minced onion, diced carrot, white wine, chicken bouillon, and (of course) rice. Served topped with parmesan and drizzled with a bit of olive oil.

A recipe from the Le Menu archive selected to take advantage of all the fruit that we picked up at the market.

I actually cooked this Wednesday night; we ate it on Thursday:

This time, vegetarian wraps with: steamed green beans, mozzarella, cherry tomatoes, corn, lettuce, and a dressing made from pesto (basil, almonds, olive oil, garlic) with extra oil and some white balsamico.

Driven by a desire for something at least vaguely mexican; wraps with:
- Ground beef cooked with cumin, pimenton, garlic, and onions. Red wine and soy sauce added and allowed to reduce off.
- a quick salsa: tomatoes, onions, garlic, lemon, chilies, piment d'espelette
- corn, cheese, lettuce, sour cream

Timed this one perfectly: Andrea got the last flat of sour cherries for the year from the guy at the market. whew!
Andrea picked up a big bag of pickling cukes yesterday, so I'm trying another pickling run.
An idea that's been kicking around for a couple weeks:

We still have lots of cheese to use, so doing mac and cheese seemed like a good idea.

A simple one for Monday night: two different vegetable "pizzas"
Squash with alp cheese: slice summer squash and then microwave (uncovered) a few minutes to start the cooking process and dry them out a bit. Brush rolled out pizza dough with olive oil, brush on minced garlic, top with the squash, sprinkle on some salt and fresh thyme, top with alp cheese., bake.
Tomato with fresh mozzarella: brush dough with olive oil, top with sliced tomato, season with salt, top with sliced fresh mozzarella, bake, sprinkle with fresh basil before serving.
Even using the prefab dough from Coop these were quite good.
of course we also had a big green salad.

A random one based on what was in the house and inspired by the really nice cheese we bought in the alps.
Thinly slice a couple of onions and put them in a baking dish with a bit of rape seed oil. Toss in the oven at 190C for 10 minutes. Add a good splash or two of white wine and bake until the wine is mostly evaporated (another 5 or so minutes). Meanwhile steam some sliced new potatoes until they are almost cooked. Top the onions with sliced tomato, then with the potato slices, then with sliced alp cheese. Salt as appropriate while building the thing. Toss the baking dish back in the oven and let it cook until the cheese is bubbly and starting to brown.
This was really, really good. I need to come up with a name for it. Oh, and more onions next time; caramelized onions are gooood!
Of course we also had a big green salad.
