Sunday Bulletin Board: ‘Are you out of your mind? You can get perfectly good chicken at the grocery store.’

DEBK of Rosemount writes: “Chicken-butchering of 2021 has just concluded with Taxman’s stuffing the last of this year’s roosters into the freezer. Thus ends an effort that each August or September consumes a full week of our lives and moves me precipitously — though temporarily — toward vegetarianism. And friendlessness, too, as it happens.

5 best things our food writers ate in the Twin Cities area this week

Get this while you still can. A thick slice of heirloom tomato is the star of this open-faced dream of a summer tomato sandwich, which resembles the Spanish griddled bread with pulpy mashed tomato in name only. Petite León chef/owner Jorge Guzmán riffs on an old-reliable mayo-white bread combo using milk bread from Patisserie 46, toasted and slathered with Duke's mayo (why is that South Carolina mayonnaise so good?), topped with the juiciest tomato from farmer Nissa Inselman-Field, and a spoonful of the house-made condiment-of-the-moment, chili crisp. "It's the simplest dish on our menu, but is just a full summer throwback for many," Guzmán said. "Sans the chili crisp." A mound of gorgeous herbs and flowers on top ("whatever we had come in that week from Nissa," Guzmán said) remind you: this is garden-to-table eating at its finest. (Sharyn Jackson)
