It has kale, kabocha squash, bacon, and eggs. I've made it twice, now. It's great when you have leftover kabocha squash, or maybe some kale, or both (and everyone has eggs and bacon, right?).
First, I chop some peeled kabocha squash into small cubes (1/2 inch cubes or so), toss them in olive oil, salt, pepper, and fresh thyme, and roast them until they're tender.
Then, I prepare a bunch of lacinato kale/cavolo nero like so (ala Lucques): half an onion, sliced, cooked in 4 tbsp olive oil until soft and just colored; a clove of garlic, minced, cooked with the onion for a minute; then the kale, stripped of ribs and roughly chopped, sauteed until done, alternating the heat between very low (most of the time) and very high (for brief periods), until it's dark green/black and kinda crispy. Season, of course.
And then: chop up some bacon into lardon-size pieces and saute them until crispy, then melt some butter, then add some eggs (I add 4, beaten) and scramble them. When they're done, mix in the kale and squash. We like it!
I made this, and it was delicious!
Lovely dinner, tonight:
I also made pizza dough and some tomato sauce for tomorrow night's dinner. All together? A very nice day in the kitchen!
Can we call this national make-pizza-at-home week? That would make me really happy. Why? Because pizza at home is so good, so easy, and so so affordable.
YES. I've been making lots of pizza, lately: a shaved asparagus pizza, a radicchio and gremolota pizza, a roasted fennel and Italian sausage pizza, &c.
Here's what I do: the day before I want to make the pizza, I make the dough . I let it rise for around three hours, then I put it in the refrigerator to sit, overnight. The next night, I make the pizza, and we eat it. The (delicious) end.
That's the great thing about drinking. Win or lose, it's appropriate.
Best line of the day, so far.
