Did a whole packer brisket Texas Style over Mesquite for 5hours and in the box for another 4. We went to a cook out and there were beef ribs, Colorado Lamb Chops, a side of hot smoke Salmon, Pulled pork and a few beer can chickens.  It was meat-a-palooza as our host liked to call it.  Great dinner with friends and an amazing home brewed selection of beers.

Nothing exciting for me tonight I'm afraid! Was visiting my grandmother all day so we just stopped at the chip shop on the way home... frown.gif nothing beats homemade chips though!

I agree!

We only eat a fish supper (in my case, a white pudding supper) about three or four times a year - but I adore it!

Thanks Petals. You are very kind to say that.

That is napa cabbage sliced very thin at an angle, and pickled in red dressing.

 

Skate is delicious like crab meat, if done correctly, otherwise it's get a funny taste.

Kgirl,

Your pizza has all the toppings I like on mine ( when I read root beer, do you remember the frosted glasses they served it in at A & W ? ). Looks delish ! Made a pizza here the other day, but they do not eat chilli and anchovies.....nor sriracha.....

Oh Petals, that is pretty!  Well, I mean the plate and the food, of course.

Funny thing, I keep nice, thick mugs in the freezer for Mister K~girl,

but he prefers it straight out of the bottle.

When I was a kid, that was a special treat if we had been good

all week long, Dad would take us kids over to A&W. 

Sister would have a float and I just wanted the Root Beer, creamy and delicious! 

That was the only soda pop that I liked.

Chicken -- brined in buttermilk and herbs -- and baby back pork ribs; both grilled over oak.  Herbed potato salad; "regular" cole slaw.  Rhubarb pie.  Vanilla ice cream.  Everything home made.  A 2004 Chateauneuf de Pape for the wine drinkers, Somersault for the beer drinkers.  Wished you were here.

Marvelous pizzas,  kaneohegirlinaz and Petals.  I have never made a shrimp pizza, got to give it a try someday.

 

Two dishes I made.

 

Pasta clam sauce on sautéed watermelon and peas

 

Pan fried cod on baked watermelon rind and beet stems

BEAUTIFUL Dcarch. 

 

We had chaud-froid d'oeuf, and a fondue d'ognons with sorrel, fava beans and a rhubarb chutney - an accidental vegetarian meal from a meat lover!

In my best Peter Brady voice… “Pork Chops and Apple Sauce”

Well, my way anyway…

 

Pork Chops and Apple Sauce, grilled chops and apples

 

I grilled three beautiful “olde tyme” boneless sirloin chops

(to medium rare-ish, about 130 - I don’t care for well done pork)

 

Pork Chops and Apple Sauce, the sauce is a Apple Butter Syrup reduction with diced/grilled apples and ground Chipotle Peppers

 

Took a clue from chef “Braddah” layne, and made a very thick reduction from the Apple Butter Syrup,

that was just sitting in my fridge, forever,

added the grilled then diced Apple slices,

along with just a couple of drops of lemon juice to loosen it

as well as ground Chipotle Pepper (it bloomed nicely in the hot syrup)

 

Pork Chops and Apple Sauce ala K~girl!!

 

And plated

LET'S GRIND!  (it was really good, even if I saw so myself)

 

Pork Chops and Apple Sauce really good!

Now there’s a perfect meal for me!

I can’t stop staring at that rabbit, ordo (is that a nice glug of EVOO over the top?)

And then top it off with chocolate soufflé, kuan (JUST you and the boy? Oh my  thumb.gif)

What's For Dinner, Namasu, pickled veg salad

 

Tonight, I thought a little ahead and prepped some English Cucumber,

Daikon (a type of radish), Carrots and Sweet Onion for a

type of Japanese Salad, Namasu, Pickled Vegetables

 

What's For Dinner, steamed Japanese Sweet Potato

 

I was originally looking for Okinawan Sweet Potatoes yesterday,

but found Japanese Sweet Potatoes, just as tasty!

 

What's For Dinner, Okazuya style supper, think Japanese deli food

 

Along with some fantastic Shoyu (Soy Sauce)

boneless Chicken Thighs, steamed Bok Choy and two scoops rice,

we had a lovely okazuya (think of a Japanese deli) style supper,

YUM!  Just like home! Made me want to cry, gosh it was so on the money. 

I may have mentioned before, a lot, if not most, of the dishes

that we would eat in Hawaii, I never made, because you could

go right down the street and get it fairly cheap. 

Here in the desert I have to teach myself, blindly.

K-girl, I love that type of meal. A nice raw-veggie salad that's rather vinegary, adobo-style chicken (is it? It looks like it) and white rice. A perfectly balanced, simple meal. You managed to make yours look beautiful. Your salad looks like a flower bouquet. 

 

PS: tonight we had pizza. No time to cook. Still good, with a nice glass of pinot!
