    Leftovers? Well I guess it was a pretty big pot. It was almost as good tonight it was yesterday.

    Next time you make it, Norm, do this and your guests will be wowed!

    We had Shakshoukah at a Bed and Breakfast in Md after the Mid Atlantic Small Craft Festival. Loved it.

    For New Year's Eve dinner: shrimp with cocktail sauce and a salad of baby spinach with a dressing of olive oil, dijon mustard, red wine vinegar, rosemary, salt and pepper. For New Year's Day lunch: BLT sandwiches with fruit on the side. For New Year's Day dinner: rotini pasta with marinara sauce and pecorino romano cheese... with a side salad of cucumber, cherry tomato, sweet onion and button mushrooms with a fresh vinaigrette.

    An easy lunch and dinners to prepare and deliver to the nursing home and mom was happy.

    Chicken soup, from scratch, in my new Dutch Oven, a Christmas gift from my mother. I was out of egg noodles, so I used rigatoni.

    i'm going all in tonight on comfort food for a icy, snowy, windy, cold night in front of the wood stove and tv with my wife

    baked stuffed pork chops, stuffed with cornbread moistened with chicken broth
    real mashed potatoes
    gravy with mushrooms and onions
    fried corn
    brussels sprouts
    cornbread
    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    I do like my baby shrimps. This time it was sauteed in a ton of garlic, some onion, and a wad of fresh basil. Add green beans, frozen from last summer, then tiny elbow macaroni. Mix with a sauce of my own concoction that started with sriracha, but also had lime juice, a bit of chicken broth, and some diced tomatoes. Turned out quite nicely. Just enough heat to break a sweat, but not enough to paralyze the taste buds <G>

    Yuck! Who taught you to sauté with fresh Basil? Heat destroys the volatile oils which give it aroma and flavor, and turns it black.

    Spaghetti alla Carbonara, with homemade pancetta. Low prep time and effort, high delectability. Salad of baby greens from our hothouse.

    Our guests brought panna cotta for dessert, with raspberry syrup.

    Took my youngest to the local bodega. Foreground is my fried pork and yellow rice. Margaret had rice and beans and chicken soup. Great food on a cold day( quick and cheap, too)

    Yes, that was misleading. I didn't saute the basil, the macaroni, or the green beans. Except that the basil went into the pan for a moment, just before the already-cooked macaroni & green beans did. The bit of rosemary, however, went in early.

    -----------------

    Tonight - I'm stuffed, and in heaven.

    Nothing I cooked, but my sweetie picked up a batch of tamales from the young Hispanic woman whose mother and father make them. She camps outside the local hippie/organic/healthfood store with coolers full. I usually get chicken or pork, but tonight it was veggies with extra cheese. Nothing like it... I'm a huge tamale fan. Wasn't expecting such a surprise. She may be my 'starter wife'... but I'm beginning to think I might just keep her. <G>

    When our friends came for dinner, they left us a pan of rye sandwich rolls. So I fetched a hunk of homemade pastrami (below, left) from the freezer and steamed it all afternoon. Thick schmear of mustard and we were in heaven. With sliced ripe tomatoes and big red grapes.

    Kangaroo sausages, chicken rissoles, chicken kebab and pork sirloin steak. Only three of us.

    Italian Pot Roast

    It's snowing here and is forecast to continue through this evenings rush hour.

    The good news is a hot meal will be waiting for me when I get home.

    Bocconcini (little balls of fresh mozzarella) with sausage, red bell pepper, roma tomatoes, and brown mushrooms, garnished with fresh chopped basil and served over penne, on a bed of rocquette (arugula).



    Como bread and butter on the side, and a bottle of Col di Sasso red.
