End of the Week Wrap-Up

I have no idea where this past week has gone. We ate dinner. I took photos of those dinners. Did I post anything? No. By the time blog posting came around I turned off the lights and got some much needed sleep. Enough excuse and on with the posts -

Roasted Sausage, Peppers, Onions and Potatoes.
Easy prep. Just roasted all the ingredients after they were 
tossed with olive oil, salt, pepper, oregano and crushed red pepper. 
I heated up the sub rolls and we added Provolone and fresh Mozzarella Cheese.

Bacon and Onion Calzones
So good. The crust was the Jim Lahey recipe. I filled them with 
sauteed onions, bacon and Ricotta and Mozzarella Cheeses. 
I had some Marinara sauce in the freezer.

Chorizo and Butter Beans
I found this recipe on the Food and Wine site
This has been in the cue for some time but 
never seems to get made. Tonight I finally made
this and it was a hit! Only change I made 
was to add a red pepper that I had in the fridge.

Ingredients -
One 14-ounce can butter beans with their liquid
1/2 pound chorizo, halved lengthwise and sliced crosswise 1/4 inch thick
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon sherry vinegar
1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
1/4 medium red onion, thinly sliced
1 cup coarsely chopped flat-leaf parsley
Salt and freshly ground pepper

Method -
In a small saucepan, heat the butter beans in their liquid. 
In a large skillet, cook the chorizo over high heat until
it is lightly browned and most of the fat is rendered, about 2 minutes.

In a medium serving bowl, whisk the oil and vinegar. 
Stir in the tomatoes, onion and parsley. 
Drain the beans and chorizo and add them to the bowl. 
Season with salt and pepper and toss. 
Serve warm.

A Hamburger!
We headed up to the Infinity Hall to see The English Beat. What a excellent show!
For dinner I had a hamburger. It seems like it has been awhile since I have had one and this was
delicious. It even looks delicious in this photo! I opted for the Smashed Potato Salad instead of fries.

And if you can't remember the The English Beat this will help -
