Matt - your presentation to the Lady Of The House is impeccable. Good on ya, my man!
As I sit here typing, I can smell the bacon cooking.... that'd be the bacon that I laid over top the breast and legs of the roasting chicken in the oven.... my mouth is watering and my pre-dinner drink is going down really fast.
I forgot to take pictures but I took out 4 nice strip loins (elk) out yesterday. I gave them a bit of dry rub spice and let them "sweat" in a bag overnight. Also, took some whitetail from daughter's deer out yesterday and sliced it for jerky and gave it an overnight marinade. Since today is NASCAR day for me, I fired up the smoker and loaded it with jerky over mesquite. About 3 hours before supper, I gave the steaks a good "smoking" then gave them a hot flash on the que. They turned out very good, no complaints.
Tonight Peter is heading to a poker party so this morning he says to me, “Muff, I forgot to tell you I have to bring an appetizer to the poker party. I know you will work your magic.” My face looks like I went 3 rounds with Rocky as I was at the dentist yesterday dealing with a root canal and feeling rather exhausted but being the good wife I am, I muster up what little energy I have cause that’s what I do. Pulled Pork Sliders coming up..... dough made, first rise, bun shape, rise, bake.... pork in oven, pull pork, pulled pork sliders ..... Poker Party Appetizer ready...... leftovers for me to nibble later on......
Fresh off the boat shrimp & squid.
Handful of mussels picked up at the beach.
Package of halibut retrieved from the freezer.
Couple of King Crab legs just arrived at the local market.
Fresh asparagus, brown mushrooms and sweet onion from the market.
Handful of garlic cloves from last year's efforts.
Fresh dill diced finely.
A little bear grease, and a little better than a brick of Philly.
All served over fresh pasta:
Ate so damn much I don't know when I'll ever be hungry again!
Three nice fairly thinly cut pork loin chops (from my son's pig) fried up with a homemade rub. Beside them was some bacon wrapped avocado slices with cumin, paprika, chili powder and a speckling of salt baked in the oven to a crisp and creamy smooth delight.
My day proved to be productive with choices by noon.... baked blueberry muffins (menfolk lunches) and French buns for beef dips (left over roast beef from night before)...... made chicken and roasted garlic alfredo sauce to go with choice of pasta (Braydon’s supper for tonight).... made gourmet naan bread single size pizzas (for those snack, I am hungry moments)........... Thursday night is date night so we went out for super..... lol
