You Have to Do This

I've been lax and complacent about my household dishware for a long time.
Yes, I collect eclectic plates. Yes, I have several settings of "grownup" dishes.
Ew. Tiresome and repetitive. Boring.
This is my new love: A gathering of four different-colored shallow bowls, hideously wide and fantastically "Alice in Wonderland." Eat me!
Today. A goat meat stew cooked with slightly acidic green tomatoes (they will not ripen; they've had their chance; off with their heads!). Seasonings of backyard mild chili pepper, garlic, onion, cumin. Splash of red wine and a blurp of chicken broth (liquidiness was needed). Cooked pink beans.
My serving was placed in a misty blue bowl. So pretty.
And, the food was really good. Thanks, Cranky.

I'm liking the misty blue bowl almost as much as the burnt orange one! Very cool. Lunch sounds pretty good, too!

That's a beautiful blue bowl & pink beans, are they like kidney beans only paler?

Makes for a good picture. Depth of field and whatnot. My dish envy grows by the day, and with each new blog I find.

Zoomie: I'm afraid we've opened up a wound. Dish collection. Hell, you have the disease too. xx

Claudia: Bigger is kinda neat, and the food is little. Odd, but curiously amusing.

Stacie: I know! I didn't know who duff was, but I read your whole post. Blowing up cakes! You rednecks.

Morgan: It's moody, atmospherically pretty. And. pink beans are like white beans, only pinker. heh.

Peter: Give in to your lust.

Such a pretty bowl. Keep this up and I might soon find myself infected with the dish disease.

I love your bowls and the stew looks good as well!

Sam said...

the bowls are wonderful.
I could have used one of those for serving my potato, AUBERGINE and 'leftover roasted tomato' and bacon bake last night.

thanks x

I have never had goat meat. What does it taste like and what other meat is it similar to?

cookiecrumb said...

Dagny: It turns out to be chronic. We just got ourselves soup bowls. Whee!

Chris: I wish you could see these bowls. They're huge, but not frighteningly deep. Fun!

Sam: Unngghhh! Mmm! Sounds insanely good, and would have looked great in one of these. We have one AUBERGINE left.

Kat: It's not at all strange. Not even as distinctive as lamb, at least to my tastes. More like beef-pork. I'm sure it varies depending on where/how it's grown; the goat we bought came from a local grower and it's legendarily tender.

Ed Bruske said...

yes, want goat meat

Ed: The leftover goat stew sat around in the fridge for a few days, and then... it was... spectacularly tastier!
(Nice writeup on you at Ethicurean. Congratulations.)
