It's turned a littler colder and we got a couple of snow flakes yesterday and it's expected to continue for the next 5 or 6 days so I went into full comfort food mode. Upcoming menus include Chili Mac and cheese, Sausage with peppers, onions, tomatoes and pasta, Pork Carnitas. For lunch yesterday we had grilled cheese sandwiches and canned tomato soup then this pic popped up somewhere yesterday. Is that a perfect name for it or what?

Had grilled cheese and tomato soup a couple of days ago. Good old comfort food!

We enjoyed rack of lamb (garlic, thyme, rosemary, fennel), roasted butternut squash (coriander, chipotle); spinach (garlic, marjoram, EVOO); and roasted artichoke hearts (parmigiana-reggiano, truffle oil). Washed down with champagne and a bottle of Valpolicello Ripasso.

Picked up a boneless, brined turkey breast at Weg's today. Took it out of the packaging and gave it some random seasoning (smoked paprika, poultry seasoning, black pepper, and a touch of cumin). Seared it on the Weber outdoor oven at about two minutes per side, then into a pan to roast indirect. Turned out great. Also made some acorn squash, rice pilaf and as an experiment, tried some Passover friendly (I think) stuffing - it had minimal ingredients, so I wanted to give it a try. I cooked the stuffing in some store bought chicken stock instead of water and it turned out pretty good. Not a lot of good pics, but here are a few. A pretty good, 'easy button' Friday night dinner.

Follow up on my 24hr sous vide eye of round. It was really good - the non steak lovers said it was great. For me, a little dry - could've used some more moisture. But it was incredibly tender and tasty. Served with a Caesar salad and the rice recipe I'll link to below. I didn't follow the recipe exactly - avoided the 'condensed' soup mixes. Instead, I put 32oz of beef stock on the stove and reduced it to 20oz. Separately, I made some caramelized onions. Put those in the pan with the rice and butter and to make up for not using the condensed junk, added some salt and pepper. I think I'll work on the time/temp with this recipe to get a more moist end product, but can't complain with today's results.

Question: 24 hours under water?

Pan-seared swordfish (from TJ) with salmoriglio (which is lemon juice, salt, EVOO, and marjoram); baked lima beans with olives, EVOO, and garlic slivers; Swiss chard with red pepper flakes; mushroom/seafood risotto with Manchego cheese. Washed down with a ho-made (kit) Chardonnay.

Made dinner for a few future nights! 26lbs of German Sausage. 60% Pork Butt, 40% Chuck Roast. Test patties were awesome so we stuffed it all in short order using LEM Casings and my 3L Hakka Stuffer. As usual cleanup and put away takes as much time as the actual work (if not longer)!

How do you guys cook the cod fillet, found a nice one at Costco, fresh wild.

Varis, Cod is so versatile and can be baked, pan fried or deep fried. My favorite is to bake it in a tomato sauce, like a good marinara. I also like it pan fried with lemon, garlic and butter. Check out YouTube for cod recipes. There are some great ones on that site.

Thanks, yes really versatile it seems.
Dominicans I think cook it two different ways if I remember (already forgetting my roots....lol) and one is the cod is sort of shredded into small pieces and they use potatoes and I think boiled with some condiments.

I’d like to try pan fry in a medium to bog piece 🤔🤔
