Used my La Chamba casserole to make Ciorbă De Perisoare - rice and meatball soup.
This casserole does a marvelous job of sauteing without burning. Most of the veggies came fresh from my garden. I still have tomatoes and peppers on the vine, amazing for this time of year around here.
Rice, onion, garlic, egg, cooked rice and ground pork beef mix.
Added the meatballs to the stock and veggies.
Served with some micro greens, they are still growing too.
There is a lot of stock in comparison to the veggies. I did put a serving or cooked rice in the bottom of the bowl before adding the soup.
This soup is really tasty in fact I had two bowls and had to resist a third.

This cabinet is just what I needed and looks awesome. Just got the cover for it and now I'll be protected from the elements.
Never one to skip a challenge, when I saw the empty crate I wondered what I could do with it besides trash it. It occurred to me that I could use some pull-out shelves in the cabinet like some of you have, only you bought them with the cabinet. I was able to salvage wood from almost all of the crate, plane it down and cut it to size to make two shelves. They are on full extension slides and I lined each with a sheet of brushed stainless, like the top of the cabinet. It was more work that I had intended and of course it took longer than I wanted, but it wasn't too expensive and I think it looks ok. Certainly not furniture quality and I had to make some compromises to stick within my inventory of salvaged wood and I am proud to say I only needed to buy 1 piece of 2x2 and I had another on hand to make the cleats to mount the slides on, inside the cabinet.
