165Boiled brisket, horseradish sauce.
Black radish salad. (Made some the other day, with chopped HC egg and onions fried in schmaltz.
Hold the presses! Our beautiful, 17 year old neighbor girl just brought us some caldo de pollo casero, (home cooked chicken soup with vegetables) but best of all, a plate of huge corundas ( a sort of polyhedronal unfilled tamal.) I unwrapped a corunda, put it in a soup plate, and it resembled nothing so much as matzoh ball soup, but the corundas are made of coarsely ground nixtamalized maíz.
I should have some pictures uploaded in a few minutes.

166Having received so much applause following his performance at #164, Aaron Lebedeff returns to sing In Odessa. I love the old postcards showing views of the city. At about 55 seconds, the steps that figure in a famous scene from Sergei Eisenstein's film "The Battleship Potemkin."
And to bring this back to food, maybe you will buy some hot bublichki.
Edited to add the second link.

172Pan con tomate (bread with tomato) is Catalan national dish.
A slice of light toasted sourdough bread or baguette topped with finely chopped tomato mixed with pressed garlic, a drizzle of olive oil, s&p. Quite nice.
Alternatively, the whole thing can be put into oven for a few mins to become bruschetta style.

173There's a recipe in the older Joy of Cooking for Creamed Eggs with Asparagus. It's hardboiled eggs and asparagus in a cream sauce, made in part with asparagus cooking liquid. Baked just long enough to crisp a crumb topping. It sounds rather awful, like a ladies luncheon dish from the 1930s, but I find it great comfort food.

174Fieldgate - now that sounds good! I would probably make the tomato stuff as a dip on the side though. It's a lot like the bruschetta sauce I make for angel hair pasta except I put in more seasoning and red wine, of course.
Nutrax - OMG! That does sound awful! I like all of the ingredients but not together! Sound like something that was invented by some high society wannabee on too many drugs!

Melted butter goes always well with asparagus. Another version is chopped hardboiled eggs with mayo and smietana (half and half), s&p, or only breadcrumbs browned in melted butter.
