Well, they both have lettuce...
Pretty nice day outside, have been neglecting the grill, so fired "her" up to do some grilling. Kids wanted burgers and dogs, so cooked those and some country french fries. Never did get around to doing a vege, so offered some "lettuce", ie. a salad to any takers. Two older ones had theirs with Muenster cheese (aka monster cheese), mine was a swiss with some sauteed button mushrooms. Diced onion, romaine lettuce and a kosher dill pickle on the bottom, shrooms and some steak sauce on top. Made it go well with a Murphy's draught style Stout, doing some research for my next batch of Stout. Dryer than I remembered it, but at ~$40 a case, not something I buy every day/month or year.
Well I spose........ Laissez les bons temps rouler!
I shoulda waited until Ash Wed. for this one, but it was a fish night. Started with cold-smoked salmon, doused with lemon-macerated shallots, capers, and EVOO. Then a main course of mussels with chunks of ho-made bacon, shallots, and garlic, then steamed in ho-made Pinot Gris/Viognier, with parsley. The juice was sopped up with crusty sourdough. Also, a simple side of Savoy cabbage braised in ho-made chicken stock with sauteed onions.
Honestly, I refrain from any European culinary activities. My wife says I even cut the bread wrong for Fondue. (Now think about that.... How hard is it to cut bread? But I apparently do it "wrong".)
Indian, Asian, Mexican or Italian I can comment on. I can whip you up an awesome burrito. On a home made flour tortilla. But Hungarian cuisine? Not a chance.
I can only suggest my good friend Dan's article on cooking Pörkölt.
New color for 2018. Collect them all! LOL
Oooh! Boatboy like!!!
What's the Costco price now?
Probably same as last year $699 for the K24. They have not been spotted in the wild in the US that I know of, this one was spotted in the UK at a Costco over there.
Found it online at Costco. In the past the online price was ~$100 more than the in store price. The online price includes shipping.
Brócoli, shrimps, some mash potatoes and some ravioli.
Washing it down with my 2015 Chardonnay from grapes.
Wine from the Future!
My favorite. Varis, will that be a good year for Chardonnay? Thinking of buying some futures.
Tonight we're having sous vide tenderloin steaks (finished on a ~700F Weber), grill roasted asparagus marinated in EVOO, S&P, lots of fresh garlic and taragon, oven roasted new potatoes and a simple salad.
Lol, I will edit that post....
I just assumed you had done some heavy "washing down" before posting!
This was part of our Valentines Day Supper. Barbara wine, grilled steaks, and roasted carrots. The wine was wonderful.
Alice Springs was in the house last night!
I know vegetarian @GreginND will scoff at this, but I always get a little twitchy on the Thursday between Ash Wednesday and the first Friday in Lent. After fasting (and no meat) yesterday, and facing a day of no meat tomorrow, I have learned to try to pile it on on Thursday. I grabbed a NICE, BIG steak this evening. It is a ribeye that (similar to a few days ago) has more than just the usual two muscles in it. As I wrote the other day
This one even had a bit of a fourth muscle. In any event, it was really delicious. First of all, it was THICK: okay, only 1.25" thick, but my dang grocery store rarely carries anything over an inch. (Look at the side view picture below!) I, therefore, undercooked it. I was shooting for med. rare, but I would say I hit perhaps the rare side of rare. Damn good, however.
This was complemented by a baked potato and baked Delicata squash (both courtesy of the DW), and some mustard greens and onions braised with ho-made chicken stock.
