Thanks for the syrup recipe. That "Hawaiian Toast" looks good too, could use King's bread. I have some Passionfruit pulp in the freezer - I freeze it in icecube trays, just the right size for a Hurricane

I'm trying Hilda. It's hard though, I can't just throw ingredients in a glass like I do in a pan

Catalan Saffron Orzo with Linguica and Grilled Vegetables with Picada

My wife makes a great Pineapple upside down cake. I don’t core fresh pineapplew very well. 1rst time she’s made one with fresh. Thanks to me it’s the best we’ve ever had.

Pineapple upside down love that!

Ok so how many people had to look this up?

Picada (Catalan pronunciation: [piˈkađə]) is one of the characteristic sauces and culinary techniques essential to Catalan cuisine and Valencian cuisine. It is not an autonomous sauce like mayonnaise or romesco, but it is added as a seasoning during the cooking of a recipe.

Mike a lot of your food is brown or dark green.

You need some yellow plates to complement your food with your dishes.

Dave, that cake looks delicious!!! I bought a cheap pineapple corer at the dollar store and it works well. Good pineapple shells for drinks too

Skip, I had never heard of Picada either. This particular recipe may not have been too traditional as it called for Panko bread crumbs instead of pine nuts or almonds. Browned in olive oil with garlic and herbs, it added good flavor and nice crunchy texture to the veggies.

I saw that lack of color contrast when I went to take the picture, that's why I added the tomatoes These plates look really cool alone but I didn't consider how they would look with food on them. I think that white plates are much more versatile but the wife likes color. Happy wife, happy life

"These plates look really cool"

Yeah they are cool plates.

We have had the same white plates forever, they do have a green bamboo border.

I never want my plates to look better than the stuff I put on them.
But any more we don't make fancy foods.

"This particular recipe may not have been too traditional"
There must be a ton of ways to make it.

Thanks for the inspiration nui 'umi 'umi. French toast with King's Hawaiian bread, fresh pineapple, bananas, toasted coconut, and passionfruit syrup (that syrup recipe worked out perfectly!) A perfect combination of flavors, it was one of the best things I have eaten in a while! I meant to put some pecans in but forgot Toasted macadamias would have been AMAZING on that

Looks delicious Mike. I usually use the rounded loaf (unsliced) but when the grandkids see it they “just a little piece” it till it’s gone. Nuts sounds like a great add
Cheers

nui 'umi 'umi and Mike, Those French Toast and Pie pics look tremendous. I'm not a huge sweet fan, but those would be worth going for.

Also Mike, great looking Saffron Dish...love it.

Skip, Good plate info, I myself have dozens of different Restaurant Plates from the 30's-60's that we use regularly...along with my wife's "matched" ware.

Cold, Rainy Wisco fall evening...My wife's Great Grandfathers Beef Stew w/ Drop Dumplings....not Pretty, but OMG good. Very different than most Beef Stew as it is a tomato rich-root vegetable recipe...very unique.
