May 31, 2011


When I wrote the menu for last week, sauerbraten and the like sounded good.  We were still in the monsoon season of damp and cold. Then Spring came – both days of it…Then we were in full summer mode – Hazy, Hot, and Humid.  Temps in the 90’s.  Ugh! So, in any case, you’ll see we switched a lot of things around for cooler eating/cooking.

Am now trying to gear up for the seasons grilling.  It is amazing how much one forgets over a season.  That’s a good reason why I keep indexes – I can go back and fresh my memory as well as get new ideas.  One of the ones I’d forgotten was Stephen Raichlen’s ketchup potatoes.  Sounds dreadful, but really is a lovely, easy dish with no cleanup.  Basically sliced onions and potatoes are layered in aluminum foil with white wine, Worcestershire, butter, bay leaf and a little ketchup.  The foil is folded into a packet and thrown on the grill.  Viola!
