Nasty storms coming through during the dinner hours tonight, so I went with this instead of grilling. A combo of thighs and BSB's.


It's very good - maybe a little too much honey and mustard (depending on your taste), but I think I'd only back them off slightly and maybe add a touch of vinegar and some herbs. Turned out great though. Rice in the cooker done in chicken stock and butter, with some dried parsley and S&P. Mixed green and arugula salad with balsamic vinaigrette.

Baked brown rice (butter, sage, mushroom stock); peas (sauteed onions, basil); dried lima beans (cilantro); sauteed beet greens, mushrooms, onions, braised in beef stock; roasted Romanesco broccoli with garlic/lemon/capers sauce.

You may dimly recall that I learned about baked, stick-o'-butter rice here. (Looking at you, @Boatboy24 !)

Honestly, it looks like a fantastic meal and your pics had me drooling. But I have to ask: 🤣

I was in a cooking rut, looking to do something different:

pork 1.jpg

I butterflied a pork tenderloin, opened it up and pounded thin. Sprinkled with a bit of paprika salt, then sliced mozzarella and goat cheese. Folded it over, sprinkled with a Mediterranean-style blend I created. Then sprayed with oil and dusted with Parmesan and Italian seasoned bread crumbs. Baked at 350 F for 40 minutes. Served with baked potato and butternut squash.

Mrs. WM81 was very pleased.

The second tenderloin in the package is marinating in red wine and the Mediterranean seasoning. Tonight we're having scaloppini!!

I'll dust the pieces in cornstarch, pan fry, and make a wine sauce. Probably serve over pasta with leftover squash or spaghetti squash.

We enjoyed lentils with carrots, onions, ho-made stock, etc.; roasted artichokes; sauteed cabbage, mushrooms, and onions with red pepper; green beans with cream and that Saint Agur bleu cheese that I posted elsewhere; pork chops, garden-grown sage, and butter braised in a white wine (ho-made Vidal) pan sauce.

Photobomb! (Sorry about that.)

After a long hard day, I made a pork tenderloin (toasted coriander and fennel, S&P, browned in butter with thyme sprigs and whole garlic); deep-fried artichoke hearts with grana padano and truffle oil; sauteed spinach with garlic and EVOO; roasted "teinturier" purple potatoes with rosemary and marjoram; seared shishito peppers with lime and salt; side salad with no lettuce, only arugula, frisee, and cilantro. (All we had in!).

Roasted delicata squash (coriander, cinammon); sauteed spinach with lots of garlic and EVOO; roasted fennel with ground fennel seasoning and pecorino; broiled flanken short ribs with a Moroccan seasoning mix (cumin, paprika, ginger, cayenne, coriander, cinammon, salt...); salad with lettuce, frisee, arugula, 'shrooms, parm, etc.

So much for meatless Monday! :slp

I was going to roast a chicken tonight, along w/ some good sides and veg. Sadly, work got in the way and there was no way I was going to pull that meal off before 9pm. So, fridge/freezer diving was in order. Kiddos got some chicken dumplings with ho-made sauce and a not-so-fancy salad. Mrs BB had some leftover takeout in the fridge, so that left me on my own. Found a small packet of pulled pork and a potato-broccoli gratin in the freezer. Made a 'pulled pork pancake' topped with a Piedmont style sauce, along with a tater side. In hindsight, should've probably had some salad too.
