Pork chops baked in a creamy mushroom & onion sauce which is then thickened into a slam-your-arteries-shut gravy, steamed broccoli, garlic & cheddar mashed potatoes. Washed down with Gritty's Vacationland Ale.

About to send the stepdaughter out in search of a cheesecake for dessert. (an afterthought)

Roast Chicken on a bed of stale Ciabatta with EVOO and Thyme. The Chicken juices get soaked up by the bread; toasting and becoming very delicious, sauteed Spinach with shallots and a splash of cream and roasted Rosemary potatoes. Hmmmm mmmm good.

Saturday night.

Weiners and beans.

Home made cole slaw and baked beans. Hot dogs and just about the last of the fresh corn on the cob from the farmer's market.

Washed down with Yuengling's Black and Tan.

Boneless pork butt in the "smoker" since 6 a.m. when I was leaving for Annapolis. 12 hours later.....sliced thin, made Nawth Karolina style sauce for it...simmered it for 20 minutes...warmed a hamburger bun and slapped it full. Cole slaw and a couple of niblets on the side....ice cold unsweetened tea........then made a cuppa hot green tea and recovered a slice of key lime pie from the fridge.......cleaned up dishes, fed critters...getting ready for another shower and crash and burn.

Spaghetti carbonara. I was out of Romano cheese, but there was Parmesan and Asiago, and it was yummy anyway.

All sorts of stuff. Worked the frenchfry booth at our church Oktoberfest last night and tonight. RC, so a rather broad representation. In the last two days we've dined on Philipino, Mexican, Polish, Italian, EasternShore (crabcakes, that is) and of course, German. Oh yes, and some decent dark beer.

Tag! Bought a punnet of (6 cherry tomato) seedlings a few weeks back, potted them up and they now wait in fear....3 go in soon, with the other 3 as backup in case a late frost nails the first lot. Cunning, eh?;):)

Dinner was Vegetarian Thai red curry and rice.....a mix of home-grown, fresh and frozen vegies but it tasted fine and it took about as long to cook as it did to eat.

Quail, slowly pot roasted in good olive oil and a little butter, stuffed with parma ham and sage and finished with a little white wine (a couple each) Garlic potatoes. Dunno about the other veg yet. I've been picking blackberries, the new Coxes are in and we have some clotted cream, so that will make a good crumble. Maybe we might open that nice bottle of Savigny that's sitting in the wine rack......

I'm not normally one for the "best in all the world" lark, but I really can't imagine an apple more delectable than a fresh plucked, perfectly ripe, "first of the season, English Cox's Orange Pippin.

Bon appetit! :)

Dinner here is a nasty subject.

I'll eat anything other than liver, kidneys, or salted watermelon.

My wife is about the same.

The rest of the folks here are quite selective in what they'll eat, and the list of things all of us will eat gets pretty small.

One interesting meal I've devised that all seem to like and is simple and cheap:

1 lb of elbows. While the elbows drain, I dump two cands of crushed tomatos into the pot, keeping low heat on. Then I dump the elbows back into the pot.

Next I add 16 oz of grated cheese; sometimes cheddar, sometimes mozzarella, sometimes the mexican taco mix.

If I'm in the mood, I'll have been browning a small package of chopped beef, sausage, or such, which I will have dumped into the strainer before the elbows, so the hot water rinses the meet.

Once it's all back in the pot, I put a lid on and stir every couple of minutes until the cheese is melted.

I'll eat anything other than liver, kidneys, or salted watermelon.I've been having trouble finding good deep fried chicken livers up here in Michigan... guess I'll have to do them myself. I bet Katherine will not be happy with that for dinner... maybe I won't tell her what she's eating and just serve them over rice smothered with gravy (bacon grease gravy probably;))

Went to an Oktoberfest last night. We brought a pork tenderloin that was filleted, stuffed with apple, bacon and onion (all sauteed in a bit of the bacon fat, carmelized with a bit of brown sugar and deglazed with cider vinegar) wrapped in bacon and cooked with a bottle of hard cider in the baking dish. Yum. There were galumpki, potato salads, cole slaw, sauerkraut, ham, bread, sausages and more. I was stuffed!

Bacon and apple stuffed pork, cooked in bacon fat and apple cider, wrapped in bacon, served with a side of pork sausage, and ham.... "And to drink with that?"
"Pork cider!"
"Very good sir!" :D

Lefty - the pork is sooooo good that when we visit my in-laws, my MIL makes me prep two of them all stuffed and tied up to go into the freezer for after we've gone!

The New Zealand ones, perhaps? :D:p

Sadly, getting harder to find as growers swap to more commercial brands such as the dreaded Braeburn*....:(


*Braeburns are, in fact, quite a nice apple if eaten fresh from the tree....at least mine are. :)

Tonight? Mushrooms sauteed with garlic, thyme, parsley and de-glazed with red wine and topped with some fresh mozzerella and browned under the broiler. Add some Kalamata olives, fresh bread, a balsamic/basil/garlic/olive oil dipping sauce and a few glasses of a decent red and that was dinner.
