Thought I'd throw a bunch of sausages (Polish, Italian, Czech, German, etc) I picked up from my neighborhood butcher in the ol' crockpot with some peppers and onions tonite and have a sausage fest!

What's on your table tonite?

Well, since you asked...

Leftover turkey soup from the leftover bird. Boiled the carcass with water, onions, celery, garlic, picked the bones clean, added 'em to the soup along with fresh onions, celery and rice, and fresh thyme and sage. Good, hearty--but oddly (and surprisingly) bland.   Don't know A little extra salt and pepper has helped. I wonder whether removing some of the turkey fat removed some of the flavor? 

Is it too late to invite myself over to dinner???

Salt,

the scrouge of modern food!  Well not quite, but obese people with high blood pressure have to look out for that stuff.  When not using a bunch of salt in soups,I would try adding a bunch of garlic, a little acid (vinegar etc...), certain herbs such as oregano and chili pepper.  I don't generally use Cumin in soup, but I bet that would work as well.  I was surprised at how good a low salt chicken soup tasted the other day.

I had a chicken sandwich tonight, with a chocolate turnover!

Had a bowl of spicy chicken soup and some leftover turkey enchiladas.
My mother-in-law made some red chile sauce which made for some scrumptious enchiladas!!!!!!!!!
Like turkey,  even better a couple of days later.

Spiced the soup with some of my wife's grandpa's chile salsa.
Hooboy that stuff is YUMMY!!!!!  And HOT!!!

Lucky for me, Grandpa shared the recipe with me so I can make it on my own.

Oh yeah!

Ronnie R. might be proud of me for this,  although I could NEVER come close to his mastery of soups & the culinary arts in  general!

BUT!!

I made a butternut squash bisque with crab that rocked!!  First time trying a new recipe and I'm pretty happy with the result.
Even my 13 yr old daughter dug it!

WOOHOO!!!!

Also made some beef & chicken fajitas for the kids.

Not much of anything left!
Good sign.

Have a great weekend All!

Thanks

I made a beef casserole yesterday. Good quality stewing steak, onions, garlic, carrots, bay leaves, bit of a cheat by adding a "beef casserole mix" of herbs/stock, and a healthy dollop of port (I'd run out of red wine) gave it a comforting richness. Enough for several days, which is just as well seeing as I'm currently snowed in.

I'm going to throw a couple of chix breast into a slow cooker and add a bunch of veggies. Not sure what I'll season with; oregano looks like it'll be in there, along with garlic. Starting to stay away from the potatoes (which irritates the better half but pleases the doctor...) so probably long on onion and carrots.

Last night I cooked burgers on a 'Foreman' grill.

1 lb 90% lean ground beef
1 lb mild Italian sausage
One piece of bread
One egg
Salt and Pepper

Mix ingredients in a bowl, form patties (I made 7 from this), cook to medium or so.

It's based on a recipe I got from a Jamie Oliver book and it works very well on the 'Foreman' grill. I'm not sure I'm sold on this mix of flavors.

What kind of grill do you have?  My Weber kettle grill has many virtues, but cooking pizza is not among them.

We're still working on cherries for dessert.

It's a conventional gas grill. I put the pizza on a sheet till the crust browns, then turn the grill off & slide the pizza on bare grill for an instant, then back on to the sheet and immediately transfer onto a clean brown paper bag.  Cool & cut.

Yeah, I grilled a skirt steak.  Daughter has been a vegetarian for about two years now.  I suppose I could cook meat anytime I want, but I need to have something for her to eat.

I don't have a gas grill.  I use hardwood lump charcoal.  I used some apple wood chips this evening.

The lump charcoal lights real easily.  Give me a grill, lump charcoal and a few sheets of newspaper, and I'm ready to cook in about 15 minutes.

Tonight I did skewers of haddock, mushrooms and pineapple.  Served with Jasmine rice.  The hummus and baba ganoush didn't really fit, but I had to do something with the eggplant I grilled yesterday.

I certainly hope your free-camping and poaching was on public land and not private, could have been dangerous. Other than that...sounds like a helluva time!

No. None of it would fit in the toaster oven. I use the baking tray that came with it and some glass casserole pans that I bought because they fit. I got rid of all my "non-stick" cook-ware a long time ago. I have a nice assortment of cast iron. I can make darn near anything in a cast iron skillet with a cast-iron lid when needed.

And get this - no pee smell!

No. None of it would fit in the toaster oven. I use the baking tray that came with it and some glass casserole pans that I bought because they fit. I got rid of all my "non-stick" cook-ware a long time ago. I have a nice assortment of cast iron. I can make darn near anything in a cast iron skillet with a cast-iron lid when needed.
Bad writing on my part. Do you use it in your larger oven?

"It" meaning the cast iron skillet? I could, but I choose not to.  Idea!

Today will most likely be semi-healthy. Tonight, less so. My plan is to throw Id4 on the DVD player and have munchies instead of the more traditional holiday faire. Yesterday we went to a great party and did the brats, dogs and burgers thing.

Options include:
Guacamole
Crudite
Cheese
Sliced Roast Beef
Crackers
Fresh Berries, Watermelon, Pine Apple

Chicken casserole. Free range chicken breasts, onions, carrots, garlic, mushrooms, potatoes, bay leaves and, the one cheat, a "chicken casserole" mix containing cornflour and various herbs/spices. I would have added some white wine, but if I had, there wouldn't have been any left to drink. :)

I was in an nice restaurant yesterday with family. Long time since last time. I don't know the English name on the food, but it was so good, I could nearly not believe it.  Amazed The meat was from lamb. The vegetables and potato was made so special, it could be a meal in it self. Its the best I ever tasted.

After such a meal, you feel really well and relaxed!! Until the bill was on the table. But in fact it was worth it  :)

Last night had a nice roast chicken (raised locally), slowly cooked on the BBQ with a can of beer in the middle, and fresh herbs from our garden; fresh local "candy cane" beet salad with fresh local fennel; fresh local steamed green beans; fresh local heirloom tomatoes/fresh local cucumbers/fresh local basil with basalmic vinegar/olive oil dressing; fresh homemade raspberry cobbler with our own raspberries; local rose' of Sangiovese wine. Followed by a local Port wine afterwards.

I gotta tell you, I so much do NOT want to buy grocery store produce or meats again!!! This 'locavore' deal is awesome...such flavors cannot be found in a store. We shop farmers markets all season long, buy locally raised, grass-fed beef, buffalo & lamb, and grain-fed chickens. Of course, we have awesome fresh caught local (regional anyway) Pacific salmon, halibut, ling cod, shrimp, crab...what a bounty.

Tonight we're having fresh ling cod fish tacos with locally-grown cabbage, fresh avacados and homemade salsa, with locally-made tortillas, topped with a squeeze of fresh lime juice. Locally brewed beer...mmmmmmm :) :) :)

The only way I'll roast a chicken anymore.  If it rains, I do it in the oven.

Has anyone ever done this with a turkey and a big Foster's can?  Just an idea I've had but not tried yet.

If I smoke a turkey, I generally will split it (removing the backbone for soup) so placing the can inside the cavity isn't an issue.  What about using Foster's as part of a brine to soak the bird in before roasting/smoking/BBQing?

No, not a highjack - it was what was for supper on Wednesday Aug 1, 2012.
My wife and I ate out. Very pleasant afternoon... waiting 1.5 hrs in traffic, and another 30 mins to get to the counter. Ironically, it was VERY pleasant. No one was upset at the wait.... everyone was polite... "thank you", "excuse me", "how are you today"... "nice to see you".... there was a very sweet spirit in the facility. Good!

Fast Food sux,... yea,... but chicken is better than a greasy hamburger..., eh? Don't know

Last night - Ham Sammich, with lettuce, mayo, salt, pepper, and freshly sliced 'mater out of the garden.  Good!

cajun red beans and rice.  I have a recipe from down south that is killer. It just takes 4+ hours to cook.

Pressure cooking it right now for 15 minutes to soften the beans and hamhock.

It smells wonderful in here. Shallot, garlic, hamhock, andouille, green onion, one bell pepper, black pepper, chili powder with new mexicos in it, cajun seasoning, parsley, oregano, celery etc.....

Ill be eaten good all week. it makes a couple of gallons of beans. I use small reds not kidneys. The 2 beans I dont care for are kidneys and mayacobas. small reds are great!

Egg noodles with mushroom alfredo carbonara. Real bacon I crumbled myself. took 2 1/2 hours to make. Num lots o left overs.

Sounds great!!  There's nothing quite as satisfying as eating a successful dish that takes a long time to make.  Having done it lots of times (I use bacon in several potato dishes), I'd suggest doing the bacon in a mini grinder.

Not tonight, but tomorrow we have meatloaf planned. I like to add some bacon on top  Evil Rice pilaf as a side and some garden grown lemon cucumbers.  Good!

Beer battered cod and some big ol' steak fries. Sadly I forgot to buy tarter sauce... And I can't make any  Pant No coleslaw either, but an assortment of veggies will do.

Pork Gyoza, with 1/2 a blueberry muffin for desert.  This brand of gyoza actually taste more Japanese than Chinese.  Many "gyoza" are more like chinese pot stickers.  The flavorings and dough is different.

My father's family used to do the twelve varieties of seafood for Christmas Eve dinner.  Christmas Eve is also my wife's birthday.  I need to do something nice, even though I can't count to twelve.  We did three.  Clams, scungilli, and scallops in a white sauce over linguini, with a cabbage salad on the side.  It was served with a local, naked Chardonnay.

It all sounds and looks delish.

We did Irish stew with venison instead of beef, with lotsa onions carrots mushrooms barley etc.  With a cheap grocery store Paisano.  Even my high school age daughter filled up on it and it's not easy to find something she likes.  Nobody left the table early!

Merry Christmas and blessings in a wonderful new year to all.

I made split pea soup tonight.  Swedish recipe for yellow split peas which I used for green split peas.  1# peas, swedish ham cubed (no smoke or sugar in the brine), carrots, celery, garlic, pepper, marjoram and some ground ginger.  It was quite good tonight it will be excellent tomorrow.  My wife is sick so this hit the spot.

I made my first roast beef tonight!  It was a New York strip roast, and I made it using a port and mustard sauce that seems to be popular on the web.  It came out great, even my wife, who isn't crazy about steak, loved it.  I make steaks frequently for myself using a similar method (seared in a cast-iron pan and then finished in the oven), and was surprised at how much differently the NY roast tasted compared with a NY steak.

Sides were simple but specialties of mine, sweet carrots and mashed yukon golds.

Well done, Michael!

If the shops co-operate this morning, I'll be serving prawns with lemon and crusty bread, followed by a decent cut of free range pork roasted with trimmings, and Creme Brulee which is already waiting in the fridge. Trouble is, although I quite like cooking and serving food, I'm really bad at eating it myself. I'll be full after the prawns!

No food porn for us tonite. More like food documentary. Almost a miniseries.

Leftover hambone, no, not making split pea soup again, but rather just a ham vegetable soup.

Boiled the hambone with some aromatics, added some diced browned pork, a bunch of fresh veggies (peppers, onions, celery, brocolli florets, cauliflower, pea pods, chili peppers, etc).

Can't wait!

Dang!!  Can't believe it's been almost a year since we've visited this thread!!!!


So this morning I had a Jones for biscuits & gravy,  started browning some sausage and started thinking....Dangerous I know!
Remembered I had some gravy left from a couple of ducks Mom & I baked last week,  threw that into the pan along with a bit of extra black pepper & a dash of cayenne.

Poured that over some toasted sourdough and a couple of eggs fried in smoke-infused olive oil.
Dash of Cholula sauce.

Oh yeah!!!!!!!!

STUFFED!!!!

Ah, you're an artist, Eric! Good!

I'm going home tonight and removing, from the fridge, something called a "Little Dish", a TV dinner designed for children of one year old which has no salt, sugar, colouring or other evil things. This means it doesn't taste of much, but it IS very small. I think I'll add salt, coarse ground black pepper, a chilli from my plant, and maybe a piece of celery. And it will STILL be too big!  Amazed

Split Pea Soup with smoked sausage, baconblocks and meatballs, together with some buns with peanut butter, haha, plain n simple.

Well last night,

As my father calls it "Swedish Table".  Since I don't speak Swedish I can't comment on the spelling, but we had a Swedish ham, rootmoosh (phonetically spelled) a rutebega potato mashup, some type of baked carrot dish, Kale, rolls, meatballs, Brussel sprouts, No Johnsens temptation this time just scalloped potatoes, spiced pears and some rice pudding for desert.  I got some leftovers from the feast. So I will make some yellow split soup sometime soon with the leftover ham.

I am making breakfast for my wife and father in law whenever my father in law gets here! Bacon, sausage, eggs and Pillsbury biscuits.

Lots of good stuff!

For Christmas Eve, the wife and I partook of our tradition of driving around and looking at everyone's Christmas lights.  We had in tow some pumpkin white hot chocolate with homemade vanilla marshmallows, and a drizzle of spiced rum caramel.

For breakfast this morning, it was spinach and mushroom baked eggs, with marzipan pancakes and cherry syrup.

Dinner tonight will be beef filet with blackberry coulis (sp?), homemade macaroni and cheese, duck fat roasted brussels sprouts, and chocolate-raspberry creme brulee for dessert!

Christmas morning: Cottage cheese and sour cream pancakes--kind of like blintzes, but thickandfluffy like pancakes.

For dinner tonight, we're on our own, so we're having rack of lamb with new potatoes, onions and carrots. No father-n-law, who hates lamb, so we get to indulge.

Mincemeat pie for dessert--the stuff-in-a-jar mincemeat, not the real mincemeat, but still very tasty! I once had real mincemeat pie made with bear meat from a bear hunted by my grandfather. Very different, but very delicious!

Merry Christmas to all!

Last night it was a vegetable stew, Moroccan inspired, but using what I had on hand.  Onion, garlic, winter squash, tomato, potato, carrot, bell pepper, Brussels sprouts, chick pea, pear (last of the season), seasoned with cinnamon, turmeric, cayenne, paprika, served on cous cous.  It's a lot of stuff, but it worked well together.  It would have been nice with any Mediterranean white, but I drank an Ommegang brown ale.

Last night I made a tasty faux pasta with clam sauce.

Melted butter & olive oil, a mashed clove of garlic,  some clam juice & chopped clams,  added some half & half and then whisked in some grated parmesan cheese.  Finished with a small rub of nutmeg.

Served over spaghetti noodles instead of fettuccine.


My eldest daughter loves it!  So I'm happy!

I bought a couple of free range pork chops yesterday.

Now, what should I do with one for lunch?

This depends on items in the recipe being available at home!

Hmmmm. Pork chops with barbeque baste, done in the oven.

I don't have tomato ketchup, but I do have some old tomato puree in a tube.

I don't have mango chutney, but I do have an old bottle of apple, onion, mint and chilli chutney.

I don't have castor sugar, but I do have ordinary sugar.

I do have butter, onion, vinegar, fresh mustard and Worcestershire sauce.

Accompany with mashed potato and green peas. I've got those.

OK, that sounds like it!  :)

Rubbed a skirt steak with stuff I like.  Fired up the grill.  Three minutes per side was too much. Chimichurri covered my sins nicely.  Unfortunately, there was no Malbec in the basement, but there was other reasonable plonk.  Oh yeah, Erling Kroner was playing in the background.

It was a pork shoulder kind of day.  When I got home from parade and ceremonies, I rubbed and started cooking a pork shoulder.  Some hours later, I pulled the pork and mixed it with barbecue sauce I made.  The sauce was strong with chipotles.  Served it on rolls, with cole slaw (red cabbage, green cabbage, carrots, red onion, peanuts, olive oil, lime juice, cider vinegar, fish sauce, garlic, more chipotles), and lentil salad.

We made the "beer can burgers" recipe that's been floating around social media lately.

We filled them with Gouda, foie gras, and roasted peppers.

Delicious!

Thai basil garlic chili green beans with added ground pork. Plucking the red basil off of the stems was the longest part.  Needs a packed cup of basil.  Whole head of garlic minced.  6 tablespoons roasted chili pasted with soya bean oil, 1# trimmed beans (1.5"), oil for sauteeing, a couple tablespoons fish sauce, and a little water thrown in to steam the greenbeans once coated in goodness and covered.  Must eat on rice.  Sauce is too strong/salty without rice.

Smells great!  Fish sauce drives some away, but the basil is so awesome!

Banana, honey, and pecan frozen yogurt for dessert was pretty tasty.  Made it in the blender.
