Heh.  If I had a strapping young apprentice, Mrs LMNO would never leave the house.

Can't you just tell her he's a present for a friend?

Luckily she just has a fat, old chef who occasionally forgets to wear pants under his apron.

:fap:

I really need to come into ownership of a 50's housewife style apron for exactly that purpose. Except on me.

Despite clearly being a different style of apron, I have now just pictured you as Renee Zellwioaggwearwer in Empire Records. But HAWTer. :fap:

Same idea, though.

It'll make boozemuffins THAT MUCH MOAR EXCITING.

How LMNO gets work done: for a large part of the day, he can't get out from behind his desk. :lol:

I wouldn't want anyone to faint, or anything.

I'm not a huge fan of beets...I'm wondering what else I can throw in instead.

It's basically "garlic + ________", so you could roast some broccoli, or asparagus, or....

great, now i want your kitchen. cancerous bipolar vomit, and i just got a new one.

also, on a good day, when we're together, this is what my gf and i spend part of the day on. the teamwork yields unpexpected amazements for both parties :) ... and on a bad day, we eat the leftovers of the day before ;-)

and obviously i need more beets. i need one of those veggie subscriptions, but on my own i can never eat all of it, i'm afraid.

TripZip:  Dinner parties.


Also, last night's meal was interrupted by pterodactyls a last-minute band practice, so the kale soup will be for tonight.

This may be of interest to DCup: We went to the Plough and Stars for dinner instead, and it was REALLY GOOD.  It was unexpectedly excellent.  I have a feeling it's very close to your apartment, so if you haven't already, GO THERE.

Yeah, it's right near me. I will have to check it out sometime, as I've never gone. I usually stop at People's Republik and never make it up to the next corner for yet more Commie goodness. Thanks for the info!

That looks really, really tasty. Also, I initially read the title as "Cocking with LMNO" and I was excited.

That thread can be provided.

No pics, however.

Let’s see, kale soup… what first?  Ah.  Onions, Garlic, Habenero.  It's true, I use lots of garlic.



We’ll also need to cube some potato.



Don’t forget to wash that kale in a salt water bath.  Might as well tear out the stalk while you’re at it.



The missus requested it to be slightly healthier, so we’re sautéing some Italian chicken sausage, which explains the color:



After it’s browned, remove.  Hey DCup, check out all the bits stuck to the bottom. That’s the fond.



Turn the heat down and add the onions, habenero, and a couple of bay leaves.



When they get nice and soft, add the garlic.  Stir it around, srsly.



Here comes the deglaze:  Turn the heat up and slowly pour in some white wine (shit, looks like I need to get more).



Scrape the fond up, let the liquid evaporate.



ECH and others might say otherwise, but in this recipe, I let the wine evaporate almost completely.



Add the kale.  It’ll break down soon enough.



…And return the sausage.



Add enough stock to reach the desired liquid/solid ratio.  What?  You don’t make your own stock?



This is the stuff, right here.  Trust me.



Ok, it’s back up to a boil.  Add the potato, turn the heat down, and simmer for 30, or until the potato reaches the texture you like.  Season to taste (though the habanero and nam pla adds plenty of both heat and salt).



A little parmesan finishes it off.



And there you have it.
