    Dinner 2019

    I am pretty sure that you are not a fan, but the absence of capers on that beautiful platter will probably bother me for years. HC

    Dinner 2019

    Korean BBQ rotisserie chicken. One for us and one for Deb's daughter and SIL. Potato salad was an afterthought, but a good one in my book. HC

    Lunch 2019

    Corned pork tongue Reuben sandwich. For those among you who have expressed distress at seeing the true process (and I am sure you know who you are), I have skirted the grizzly details, and only documented the more picturesque parts of the whole process. These are every bit as good as beef tongue, but way, way less costly. Two weeks in the brine and IPot for 60 minutes. HC

    Pork tenderloin piccata. When these things go on sale for $1.99 pp, I can't help but load up the freezer with them. This was my last batch. I'll be watching for the next sale. HC

    Dinner 2019

    I cooked a 15 pound turkey (49 cents a pound at Walmart) on New years Day and finished off the last of it last night. The wings and drumsticks made a pretty great turkey stew. Deb was a little skeptical at first, but packed up a lunch portion of it after dinner with some enthusiam and actually commented on how good it was. It started out as turkey pot pie, and morphed into turkey stew as I decided against making a pie crust. HC

    Breakfast 2019

    Toasted English muffin with ramp compound butter, bacon and eggs that were a little more than the over easy I was aiming at. HC

    Dinner 2019

    Dinner tonight was an old classic that happens to be one of Deb's favorites. Baked, stuffed shrimp. HC
  12. Layered slices of roasted beet and raw turnip pickles. HC

    Dinner 2019

    For some reason, I was in a cicchetti frame of mind tonight. Hot wings, leftover turkey stuffing with gravy from NYD, deviled eggs, prosciutto stuffed cherry peppers and smoked salmon spread with crackers. HC

    THE BEST: Smoked Salmon

    As a matter of fact, I made a smoked salmon spread yesterday from some salmon I smoked myself. This is a picture of the one I made for us, but I also made a foot long one for the guys in the truck shop where Deb works. I brought it in around 9:30 this morning and at noon, Deb sent me the picture of how much was left. HC

    THE BEST: Smoked Salmon

    On a recent episode of Alaska The Last Frontier, I was interested to see that one of the things they do in the spring is take any salmon that is left in the freezer, brine and smoke it, then pressure can it with some oil. I don't remember the exact details, but can't help to think that the product would be much better if it was pressure canned without all that time in the freezer. I would imagine that smoked salmon spread could be made as needed using that shelf stable product. HC

    Cheese Fondue

    Now that I have just about everything I need, it's a matter of deciding what to have for dippage. I am kind of thinking about ripe pears, blanched baby carrots & sugar snaps, raw cauliflower slices, leftover kielbasa and garlic and thyme croutons. HC

    Dinner 2019

    When I was in the restaurant business, New Year's Eve was one of my least favorite nights of the year and ever since I left, I have celebrated by not celebrating and I like it that way too! HC

    Breakfast! 2018

    Poached eggs on ramp compound buttered English muffins and smoked salmon with fresh salsa. HC
  21. I brined some fresh salmon from Aldi overnight, put it uncovered on a rack in the fridge for most of the day today. As soon as we got back from lunch (champagne brunch at Todd English's Tuscany), it went into the smoker with some hickory chips. HC
  22. Spotted some pork tongues and snapped them up this morning. Into the Morton Tender Quick they went within minutes of their arrival at the house. See you in 2 weeks! HC

    Dinner 2018

    I found these two little chuck eye steaks that were just about perfect for dinner last night. HC

    Breakfast! 2018

    Poached eggs on little beds of rehydrated porcini mushrooms sautéed in butter and dry sherry, on toasted English muffins, scrapple and a generous portion of fresh, hot salsa. HC

    Dinner 2018

    @Shelby, I confess to never having used chicken gizzards for anything, but gravy in the past. I have my doubts about how receptive Deb will be to them, but I intend to give them a try as a fried food, based on your efforts. HC
