    Dinner 2021

    Made some hummus and shishlik with recipes and inspired by the Zahav cookbook hummus right out of the food processor shishlik with a marinade made of onion, parsley, lemon juice, garlic, salt, pepper and oil filet with the same marinade veggies after cooking—cooked in the oven because I didn’t want to get out the grill. Would have been better over charcoal hummus topped with garlic, toasted pine nuts, olive oil and paprika

    Dinner 2020

    Very easy: 12oz bag of cranberries, chopped in Cuisinart 2 Granny Smith apples - cored (but not peeled), chopped in Cuisinart 2 Naval Oranges (with peel), chopped in Cuisinart Combine chopped fruit with 1.5 cups sugar Best when prepared a day early so the fruit has time to absorb the sugar. Compared to traditional cranberry sauce, it's much more refreshing and less cloyingly sweet.

    Dinner 2020

    My first year hosting Thanksgiving...very traditional, and a small group (6 adults and 3 kids, only folks who live in town). Happy with the way it turned out, and learned some things for the future. sweet potatoes with brown sugar and butter mashed potatoes with loads more butter my mother’s chestnut stuffing recipe Brussels Sprouts, with the bacon leftover from the morning’s bacon and eggs giblet gravy my grandmother’s cranberry/orange/apple “relish”

    Made a tomahawk steak for my wife’s birthday using a new method. Reverse sear at 250 in oven for an hour, then high heat sear on charcoal chimney to char. 42oz steak seasoned with harissa, salt and pepper. After an hour in oven at 225, internal temp was 110 when I pulled out. searing directly on chimney grill marks on first side final product rested for 5-10 mins ready to serve!

    Dinner 2020

    Inspired by @liamsaunt beautiful antipasto, but scaled down for a casual dinner for two. Burrata caprese with some home grown heirloom tomatoes, plus proscuitto, calabrese salami, cappacola, and some Brie. Enjoyed with a bottle of Pinot Nero from Alto Adige Südtirol. Very nice and light Pinot for a hot summer night. Currently smoking a pork shoulder to shred for various meals this coming week.

    I just bought more--my new favorite balsamic. Fattoria Estense Silver Label Sphere Balsamic. Very flavorful, and relatively affordable as far as balsamic goes (about $10 for that bottle)
