Default Dove Birds for Dinner

Enjoying the fruits of our labor from this yeaars’s opening day of Dave season. Bacon-wrapped dove stiffed with onion abs japs, “burnt” carrots (a la Tim Move), a simple side salad, abs a cool, crisp Riesling.

Life doesn’t get any finer than this.

Having an affair with Dave and bragging about your abs. Not very becoming of a lady of your stature.

It’s interesting that you ask because I dislike carrots greatly, or any carotinoid-containing vegetable for that matter (sweet potatoes, acorn squash, etc.). However, the waiter at one of my favorite restaurants—Lonesome Dove—suggested that I try them because, as he said, “People who hate carrots love these!” And although I have rarely found this statement to bare out, in this case, the waiter was right.

Here’s my take on how they make them:

Cut carrots lengthwise into 1/4-inch “planks” (I use one carrot per person). Cook them in a lightly greased cast iron skillet at high heat until you achieve charring. Turn the carrots and char on the other side.

Meanwhile, mix equal portions of honey and lemon juice in a bowl (1 tablespoon of each will work for 2 to 3 large carrots); I also add a few dashes of soy sauce to give it a salty/umami balance.

Remove carrots to a bowl or platter when done. Spoon honey/lemon dressing over carrots while warm. Top the carrots with goat cheese. Sprinkle with a little chopped fresh parsley, then serve.

Note: I pop the carrots under the broiler for a minute or so after I top with goat cheese. Entirely optional, however.

The charring makes all the difference.

The older I get, the greater my appreciation of the Maillard reaction—the caramelization of sugars in foods that make them “brown” in the cooking process—and the additional flavor profiles it lends to cooked foods. In fact, one of my favorite salads is a grilled Caesar salad where the head of romaine lettuce is sliced I half but kept in tact, then “flash” grilled long enough to acquire char marks before it is dressed in Caesar dressing. Nothing is more delicious!

This post is like a bad dream…one on a continuous loop that plays over and over again. You know the kind, like they’re chemically-induced and you know you’re dreaming but you can’t seem to wake up from it.

Probably brought on by taking an enthusiastic amount of my personal COVID prophylactic of hydroxychloroquentinolone (floater), zinc, and German Riesling.

Of course, the good news is I don’t have COVID.
