Beautiful! Looks so tasty and comforting :yum: I’ve never cooked farro at home. I’ll have to add that to my “to try” list :blush:

Meat, potatoes and salad served with Vegan bearnaise gravy. Nope I’m not trying to upset the Vegan option is the only option here without dairy or gluten. But on the other hand, this is the third time I’m actually getting sick of this food so I seriously consider skipping the meat next time.

Funny you should say that, farro is my favorite grain, but this is my first time cooking butternut squash and lately I’ve been wanting to learn to cook with it more. Farro has such a lovely chewy texture and hearty flavor. I like it a lot in grain salads, too. 11/10 recommend :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

I’ve had it before a few times and enjoyed it. Just never made it myself… same with fresh Brussels sprouts; had them but never cooked from fresh! :flushed: always had the frozen ones growing up.
Now I’ll add some farro to my next order. Good source of fibre too. Looks super (souper?) tasty :yum:

Ha! Good one! It’s easy to work with, hard to overcook, just have to cook long enough to get it tender enough. I usually just boil it in a big pot of salted water and drain it. And now I’m hungry for Brussels!

Mmm I think I’ll cook up some farro and throw it in a beet salad with arugula, goats cheese crumbles and toasted almonds for work. Thanks for the tips!

Actually decided to try picking something up at the club. It was pretty good.
Roasted double lamb chops with a chimichurri sauce. And I think you’d like this Sophia, garlic mashed chick peas. They weren’t bad. I was pretty surprised !


And a deconstructed blue cheese wedge salad.
Ala Daisy.

Those chops look phenomenal! It all looks and sounds good, actually. Deconstructed might be better than the original wedge…:thinking:

I think so. They actually call it a blue cheese wedge. And the first time I ordered it I was like “what the fuck is this?” It’s how they serve it. So now I’m not surprised. But it’s stupid they call it that. Their blue cheese is great so I don’t care.

Uh, yeah, that’s pretty stupid. I’d be pissed off until I realized I liked it better that way, probably.

I don’t know what the chefs are thinking these days.
I ordered a chopped salad at this nice restaurant. I love a good chopped salad. Like at the nice steak house. It wasn’t chopped at all. That one really pissed me off. I’m old and lazy when I eat now. :crazy_face:

By the way the lamb chops were amazing.

Now that’s just a lazy kitchen. That would really bug me. Glad your chops were great! Next week I’ll have to pull the chops I have out of the freezer. Nothing fancy like yours, but local meat.
