    Dinner 2018 (Part 1)

    My wife said to me: "This is what you get when you leave your wife alone in the kitchen all afternoon " (referring to having to run the dishwasher again) She made Tomato Sauce used in: and then Chocolate Macarons with a chocolate and strawberry ganache!

    Lunch! What'd ya have? (2018)

    In the past I've know about split pea soup - usually comes with Ham. ATK has a recipe for "pea soup" - no ham and it's not split Maybe it's as thick as a foggy day in London.... We're moving our freezer so trying to empty what we can - this was an excuse to use up some more chicken stock - so my wife volunteered to make this - and it's good! P.S. the 70s want this color of green back...

    Chili and Cornbread - Made around 10 portions of this chili yesterday from ATK cookbook. Yummy! Beef, Red Pepper, Onion, Garlic, and lots of spices.

    Risotto - this time it's pork stock and celery + the normal things. (Rice, Corn, Onions, Cheese, Butter) Verdict: Celery is now required - the crunch is nice.

    It's starting to cool off outside, so running our oven at 550F is an option again... so it's PIZZA TIME! I like pepperoni on my side, but little cheese, my wife no pepperoni but more cheese

    It's my wife's birthday today so I said I'd cook her what she wanted for lunch. She wanted something vegetarian and choose omelets with shiitake marmalade in them from MC. Served along with Country Style Bread from MB: Texture of the awesome savory marmalade:

    Dinner 2018 (Part 1)

    Saturday night dinner with friends. Cassoulet Toulousain (Autumn) from MC, without the duck It's Lamb Shoulder cooked for 48h in stock and duck fat w/ spices, a garlic sausage I made myself, beans pressure cooked in stock, and a ham broth. I wanted to make Duck Leg Confit, but there were no local sources for Duck Legs as one supplier in my state had their duck barn burn down. I didn't want to pay $80 to get duck legs and tongues shipped from Pennsylvania. It was still quite yummy! For desert it was Pavlova my wife made: Raspberries from our garden, White Nectarines, and Golden Figs, in a cream sauce with a meringue base. It was divine. Alone with this I opened the first bottle of my case of 2012 Whitehall Lanes Cabernet Sauvignon wine, and it was fantastic!

    Stir fry with green beans and carrot from our garden, and a red pepper over rice. The sauce is a hot orange, heat comes from a fatali we grew as well.

    Tonight was mostly boring, 12 yr old aged cheddar for me, some younger cheest for my wife - with crackers, olives, and nuts. But our Bulgarian Carrot pepper plant finally produced 2 ripe peppers!!!! So salsa was made, and it's hot and very yummy! So tonight is just some salsa food porn

    MC Meatloaf and Fried Pickles (the sandwich that I just do as a loaf alone) I battered it with the same thing the pickles are in and used the same oil. Tasty!
