Quail have been very scarce around here for a lot of years, but Ronnie went hunting and was able to get three--a perfect meal for us.

Did them in the CSO with mushroom risotto and stewed tomatoes to go with.

My mom started a tradition years ago that we have soup for the first day of winter, so I follow in her footsteps.  I bought myself some cute Christmas bowls and we had lasagna soup last night.

I love quail and those look like nice big birds, bigger than farm-raised.  I'm having quail next week for New Year's instead of a big roast.

Pizza.  Between the five of us in the house, only two could agree on what flavor they wanted.  So, I made four kinds, making them smaller than usual.  Pepperoni for my nephew

Lots of leftovers of all but the lobster in the freezer for late night snacking over the holidays

Yes, those quail look wonderful.

 

D'artagnan sells a larger quail; they run about 8 oz. a piece...https://www.dartagnan.com/french-jumbo-quail/product/FQUMA010-1.html?dwvar_FQUMA010-1_freshFrozenWeight=fresh-FQUMA010C#q=Quail&start=1

Apparently they do! Gives new meaning to the phrase “divided by a common language”.

Yeah, You American's claim everything.

I'm pretty sure they didn't invent those steaks in NY.😛

Ouch. I’ve been called many things. I am a Canadian. And we Canadians know perfectly well that a porterhouse steak is a T-bone on steroids.

As would a Mexican. We may all belong on the same continent but we don’t all appropriate its name. 😂

And it can’t hold a candle to a real porterhouse.

Last night, this 'porterhouse" chop, simply pan fried with salt and pepper. With beans, rice, and raab.

Home made bread with cornmeal, poppy, flax and pumpkin seeds. 

My first attempt at aged cheese (see here).

Cauliflower and mushrooms, with garlic, thyme, balsamic vinegar, bay leaves, pepper, nutmeg.

Off-season figs, roasted with some sugar on top so that will be acceptable (I was given them, I have no idea who in their right mind will by figs mid winter...).

Sirene cheese, avocado, Russian pickles, fresh veggies, Cabernet Sauvignon.

Thank you!  Bananas? Wow, better ripe or green?  

That wasn't chicken
