Yep! I said it (my fave btw)! And, in my Le Creuset dutch oven no less! Not one to read/follow rules, prefer to make up shit as I go … bear in mind, many, many years of cooking/techniques in my back pocket help. I get the pot to a scorching high heat, add olive oil (here’s the secret blogging tip: start w/ very little olive oil and continue adding if needed as opposed to the opposite. It’s very important – keeping in mind the onion and rapini will release liquids as you keep cooking. It’s very crucial you allow for this compensation. For this grilling method we want dry, not wet. We can always add, can’t subtract), then the sliced onions, seasoning as I begin searing. After a few browning moments, next comes the broccoli rabe followed by more seasoning. Look at how high heat fry cooking essentially grills everything w/ not a hint of sogginess! Sweet! A final sprinkling of chili flakes seals the deal! Enjoy!
Not only am I NOT dreading it, I’m embracing it!! It’s to the point where recently I’m taunting/daring/wanting anyone & everyone to ask me my age … go ahead, lol! I haven’t felt as healthy in my life, I feel vibrant & strong, got plenty spring chicken zip in my step and not a single person I know who turned fifty could say the same, nor did they indicate being excited ’bout it either … in fact, I’ll match up my 50 year-old Ken-Ken playing, 8K running, BBQ-ing/grilling, Vitamixing skinny-ass against the lot of you!! And yes, I’m being premature by a month with my 50giddiness … like I said, I have zip, lol!
My official 50 year-old pics (don’t know what it is, it’s not that I’m unhappy with the pics, I’m not – just can seem to get the lighting to co-operate, and I’m not happy about that, despite my efforts trying to correct it) … and don’t give me grief I’m not quite there yet, it’s MY blog … indulge me … lemme enjoy each and every day getting there … one more month baby, one month!!
… as for my present: (come back strong with) 50 belly dancers … can’t stop addicted to the shindig …
Warm weather means BBQ season’s back. Not a moment too soon, winter was long … and nasty. And with hotdogs, hamburgers, steak, chicken, etc., set to sizzle, the time for replenishing supplies is prime … talkin’ ’bout the essentials … A1 Steak Sauce, Heinz 57 Sauce, Cheez Whiz, and Kraft Singles … yep, I’m good to grill!! 😎
