Last Wednesday, Harry was kind enough to not only hip me to some house made hot dogs at Marlow & Daughters but he also drove me there to get some; I could not be more thankful. Tom, Brent, and the rest of the M&D crew really know their sausages and these dogs were, in the words of Kyle, straight up Bombastic. We chopped up some Ricks Picks pickles for relish and made a salad to accompany them. It was the ideal backyard lunch. I implore to go get some dogs!
PS In case you're wondering, yes that is my leg hair, get over it!

The weekend before last it was a beautiful sunny day and we accordingly took a stroll through the McCarren Farmers Market. Despite the 'tough economic times' we couldn't resist splurging on some Hen of the Woods (or Maitake) Mushrooms. Polenta seemed the logical accompaniment and we also made a dish of Asparagus and a Fried Egg with Chives and Truffle Oil.
Hola Amigos, as you may have noticed we are very behind on posts. Our apologies, we have been crazy busy. Sadly, I am not even sure when this dinner is from, but I remember it fondly. -dmp. (ps click on images for more info)
