    Lunch 2020

    I made a batch of pizza dough from Ken Forkish FWSY and used two portions of dough yesterday for pizza with homemade pork sausage and pepperjack. Today I used one portion for pizza with smoked turkey, more pepperjack and oil cured olives. The remaining dough was roughly formed and baked after the pizza was cooked. I used the gas grill both days.

    Dinner 2020

    Dinner was an adaptation of a Jody Adams recipe for chicken with poppy seeds and pancetta. I substituted Wright's smoked and peppered bacon for the pancetta and cooked the bird in the oven instead of the grill. Served with comfort sides and cornbread.

    Dinner 2020

    Gruyere and heavy cream. The cheese was cut from a wheel that must have had a little age on it as it had a much earthier taste than the shrink wrapped blocks.

    Dinner 2020

    Käsespätzle and fried onions served with smoked brisket and asparagus. Last night dessert was a celestial brownie with Blue Bell homemade vanilla ice cream and whipped cream. I was a little heavy handed with the whipped cream but we suffered through it.

    Dinner 2020

    Yesterday I made a double recipe of cannelloni to distribute to some of our housebound friends and for the freezer. I have used the same recipe from Cotton Country Collection by the Jr. League of Monroe LA for about forty years. The filling is ground beef, spinach and a little chicken liver bound with eggs, cream and pecorino romano. I make fresh pasta sheets to substitute for manicotti tubes. The stuffed pasta is covered in a bechamel sauce then topped with red sauce. I'm embarrassed to say how much we inhaled for dinner but the freezer certainly isn't going to have to work as hard.

    Dinner 2020

    Roast beet salad with whipped goat cheese. The goat cheese is a recipe from Alon Shaya and is just terrific. A dish we never get tired of shrimp and grits gussied up with scallops.

    Dinner 2020

    My take on a great dish from the former Madison's Diner in Pensacola. Salmon Rockefeller- grilled salmon, fried oysters, hollandaise, spinach and gouda cheese grits. And from a few weeks ago smoked ribs cooked on a gas grill using a Smokai smoke generator.

    Dinner 2020

    Last nights dinner was based on a trip to the back of the frig. I reheated beef ribs (under the broiler) which I had separated from a rib roast prior to serving for Christmas dinner and served them with other remnants of meals from the past week. The ribs had been vacuumed bagged and had held up quite well. New years dinner included all the usual suspects with the addition of a roasted beet and satsuma salad that was really refreshing. A few other dishes that were incorporated over the holidays included mirlition, sausage and cornbread dressing A delicious rutagaba, turnip and butternut squash gratin from a Southern Living recipe A 9-inch cake pan surface area is the equivalent to 2 x 4-inch and 2 x 5-inch so I made these White Chocolate and amaretto cheesecakes to serve and also to gift. The bread is overnight white from Ken Forkish.

    Dinner 2019

    A few dishes from this past week. Shrimp, chicken and chaurice sausage served over creamy grits bolstered with pepperjack cheese and heavy cream. The sauce was reduced cream with hatch chilies and some jellied pork stock. The hatch chilies and sausage also made an appearance with grilled oysters. And a chocolate espresso torta from a recipe from Jody Adams.

    Dinner 2018

    I saw this reference to a style of Kentucky BBQ ( https://www.nytimes.com/2018/10/23/dining/monroe-county-pork-steaks-bbq.html) that I tried tonight. Pork steak is pretty common in my part of the country but it is usually breaded and fried or baked. I've never seen it offered at a BBQ joint except for one meat and 3 restaurant where it was featured as the Thursday lunch special. The basting sauce is equal parts lard and butter with distilled vinegar, cayenne (75,000 shu) salt and black pepper. Served with cream potatoes and a green salad. The steaks were cooked with hardwood charcoal and pecan embers. We've been eating a lot of turkey the past month ( 23#, 12# , 2x16#) prepared grilled, baked, SV'd., turchetta, sausage, and boiled etc. I was afraid that I over-cooked a dry brined breast last week so I pumped it while warm. I injected over 4 oz in the evening and injected the remaining ~2 oz the next morning. It turned out great! Breast roasted at 275F. Getting ready to pump. "Plumped" Breast
