There was quite a bit of discussion about gyros and our favorite kabob & gyro place closed a few years ago so I was pushed to give this a try. Oven baked gyro loaf of lamb & beef. Turned out rather well; it is our new favorite!  🙂

Wow, @KennethTthat rendang looks incredible, the new lazy me can only admire the effort you must have put into it. 

 

Our second day in Sarasota. Yesterday we had Trader Joe’s pork pot stickers, too tired to go out. 

 

But tonight we were in the mood for oysters. Sorry I didn’t take a picture of the oysters. They were kind of tasteless...And the rest of the menu was pretty bad too. The old saying that also shoelaces are good fried it was not true this time. But I liked the location, it was a good open space and relaxing and atmosphere was good, but the food was not that good. The Trader Joe’s frozen pot stickers of yesterday were better 🤣

It's been a crazy week at home, myself and one of my sons tested positive for COVID, and a couple others in the house have symptoms. Thankfully it's been VERY minor for us: Just an irritating fever and tiredness.

 

Anyhoo - that means we're all at home for the duration, still waiting on test results on the rest of the clan. We did get out yesterday and the whole family went hiking on a deserted ridge to break the quarantine blues.

 

I had a boneless leg of lamb from Costco I defrosted to smoke. I've never cooked lamb at home, but love eating it. Especially in the 'before times' when we used to travel non-stop. 

 

Dry rub, smoked for about 3 hours. My lovely wife made some incredible looking sides of peas and pilaf but alas, last night I discovered I had developed the other symptoms of loss of taste and smell. I can taste sweet and salt, and that's about it.

 

Daughter #1 made some lovely pumpkin pie empanada's for dessert.

Do you have a link to the recipe you used, if you used one? That looks like something I'd like to try.

@Shelby @robirdstx I’ll PM the gyro recipe to you as soon as I can. Just in case you have the book, the recipe is from “One Dish Meals” from the CIA.

Would you add me to that PM list? I have ground lamb and ground beef in the freezer.

 

@pastameshugana--Bestwishes for a quick and easy recovery for you and the clan. Dinner looked fabulous; so sorry you couldn't taste it.

 

Don't ask. Eat it.

Wow those are plump birds.  Wild duck is so delicious and so different than farm-raised birds.

Made a German feast.  This season the wild chanterelles were late by about three weeks, but now in abundance. These are harvested here in Eastern, Washington and sell for a very reasonable $12.99 a lb.  Served with homaemade spaetzle.  I actually like the texture of the dried German spaetzle I usually use, but this homemade had more flavor and more tender.

 

I hadn't done a Sauerbraten for a few years.  I use a recipe out of the old Time-Life Series Foods of the World-German edition.  I went a little far with the beef in the marinade at 5 days, but it was delicious and served with gingersnap gravy.  Then homemade applesauce with golden delicious apples and currants.  The sauerkraut was a fresh brand I like from the store, just added caraway seeds.

Looks very much like Alton’s loaf method.  Last time I made it was in 2007 as I can see from the time stamp on my photos 

flavor wise it was quite good and very close to the local gyro joint.   Used the oven the first time and baked it on the grill the second time to get

APO chicken...

I followed the anova recipe.  I consumed the entire leg quarter at a sitting which is more than I would often eat.  Skin and flesh were excellent.  Broccolini and wild rice were not half bad either.  Cranberry sauce not shown.
