Jalapeno sausage wrapped up in corn husks and smoked about 45 mins (until 160). Got the recipe off Triple D and they are wicked good. I double ground my pork but next time I'll try just one grind. A little time consuming but worth it

Made a quick week night "lasagna" using Penne pasta, itialian sausage, kalamata olives, marinated artichoke hearts, ricotta cheese, and italian blend cheese along with....... jar sauce! Made in Italy though so good jar sauce! 30 mins prep time, 30 mins cook time. Came out hot and bubbly. Could feed an army. Total cost, about $9 for an entire 10 x 13 pan! I stocked up when Smith's (Kroger) put all the "Italian week" specials on closeout. $5 jars of pasta sauce for $0.50, Italian pasta for $0.25. Awesome sauce!

Pot luck at the Cub Scout 'Blue and Gold' Banquet. I went southwestern, with some salad topped with taco meat and a really good chicken chili. Having dessert now in the form of a LR Shiraz Viognier.

I lost about 40 pounds without even trying. I've gained a little back over the winter with less activity and a bit higher fat in my foods, but I'm sure that will melt off once spring comes and I spend more time working outside at the winery and have my fresh garden produce available.

I usually try and take one dinner meal on the weekend to try something new that will be easy for my 18 yr old son to serve for dinner on Tuesdays/Thursdays when my wife leaves in the morning and doesn't arrive home until 9 pm+. Crock pot fare is the norm, so we tried some cheese steaks tonight. Big hit, every one enjoyed, and my wife bemoaned the fact that she would have to wait until the next day to try it (assuming we leave her leftovers).

Served with an Irish Red keg beer, yum!

Made up a paste with garlic, kosher salt, fresh ground pepper, rosemary, lemon zest and olive oil. Rubbed that all over some lamb chops that I'll be grilling up shortly (chicken for wife and kids). Ho made bread, salad and steamed broccoli as well.

Great minds! I also have lamb chops, and I made up a Moroccan-inspired relish of preserved lemons, parsley, cilantro, mint, olives, and garlic. This is currently marinating, and I will broil this in a few minutes. I also made roasted green beans with Ras el Hanout seasoning (cardamom, cinnamon, coriander, cumin, paprika, turmeric, pepper), and pearl cous-cous with some of the seasoning and some of the parsley/cilantro/mint mixture.

This is the "maiden run" for a batch of preserved lemons I started back in August. Mighty tasty so far!
