For our second "farmer's market" weekend dinner, I took inspiration from France (I think).

Pan-roasted tilefish, fingerling potato and trumpet mushroom hash, pea-shoot microgreen salad with orange bell pepper. Lovely Pouilly-Fuissé to complete the meal.

One of our favorite Nero d'Avolas too, which was a nice complement to the bold flavors in the pasta sauce.

I can't be certain as we don't know the ingredient list of the bread, but this may have been an 'accidentally vegan' meal too. 2/2

Last night's "farmer's market" dinner was inspired by a trip to Sicily (to which we hope to return some day):

Fresh (locally made using bronze dies!) conchiglie pasta with Sicilian eggplant, orange cherry tomatoes, roasted garlic, and an entire bunch of scallions.

Sauce seasoned with crushed red pepper, rosemary (too much, but still delicious), and loads of flat-leaf parsley.

Bread made by a local bakery, and filled with briny green olives and Za'atar, and was soft and savory. Big winner. 1/2

An abundance of squash flowers in the garden meant we got to enjoy them battered and fried yesterday 😋

The batter was simply an egg, some flour and a generous splash of beer.

How do you eat yours (if you do)?

If Andrew Yang's zero-idea third party gets into a debate thanks to Yang’s repetition of slogans, the other candidates should mine this Alexandra Petri satire piece.

That cooking adventure yesterday was making scratch #pasta and then forming up some #tortellini. The results were pretty tasty.

It's hard to go wrong with home-made pasta.

cis people will literally call a car “she”, then claim that pronouns are about biological reality.

I hope Alex Mashinsky and other Celsius executives have to read every single one of these letters.

Inspired by @ehashman I will also occasionally post food pictures here.

This was last weekend's shrimp curry (without the use of curry powder/blends) over rice with toasted coconut. Naan was store bought, I ran out of time to attempt my own... this time.

After making curry from scratch I now understand why Indian kitchens have such a large quantity and variety of spices.

The so-called “clones” problem in app stores is well studied in #FOSS policy circles. We took a moment to write up the basics of the trademark-based approach usually applied to build solutions for the problem:

A must read to understand what #forge #federation is about and what is going to happen.

The "State of the #Forge #Federation: 2021 to 2023" report was published today on the @forgefriends blog. It contains a retrospective of what happened in the past year and explains what is likely to happen in the next twelve months.

This is important. Very, *very* important.

Like, "human extinction"-level important.

> John Deere has extraordinarily terrible information security.

This is great. So, so great.
