Lentil soup and a dish of strawberries with whipped cream!

CG, I've started making small amounts of whipped cream using a clean Smucker's peanut butter jar and the stick blender, any excuse to buy another jar of peanut butter!

That's a good idea, AB, but I pretty much do a squirt from the Cabot can.

I do have a couple of empty Smucker jars for "just in case", but right now we actually prefer a different brand. I tried "Hampton Farms" on a whim, and we were smitten. I get the tub of natural. It really tastes like fresh-ground. It's a little thicker than the Smuckers; I like that about it, too. Plus, it's easier to find and a whole dime cheaper!

I made what Steve Kroll made Friday but I used this recipe Shrimp Gumbo with Andouille Sausage Recipe - NYT Cooking It is quite good but could be better. Perhaps the flavors need more time to blend. Everything I cook is better the next day after 24 hrs of sitting in the fridge.

Still wrestling with my maintenance medication and, thus, not up to par.

Decided to do a play on osso buco and make it using turkey legs and do it in the crock-pot. Sure smells good and we'll have risotto with it if I feel good enough. Otherwise, I'll prepare pasta of some form. We've been eating a little less lately, so no dessert tonight. We tend to eat less during the warmer months anyway, so nothing too unusual.

It all started from a few spinach leaves I picked from the garden...I found a dough ball in the freezer, made up some pizza sauce and had all of the other fixin's so I decided on a Chicken Florentine pizza. Then, I tossed some ham in there and, this was it...

SC got a pork shoulder out of the freezer, and I'll be doing Kaluha pig in the Nesco Roaster.
K, Kaluha or Kalua Pig ??
I saw something on Pinterest where the cook STUFFED Cabbage with Kalua Pork, MMM, what a great idea!

We're having a second meal off of the Smithfield Portobello Pork Loin, along with roasted Yukon Gold Potatoes and Broccolini
For dessert, I'm making Apple and Pecan Crostata to share with our new landlords.

K-Girl, maybe Kayelle made Kahlua pig.

Himself first questioned whether or not I actually had chicken under the peppers/onions/etc! Yeah, I overdid the "smothered" part, but that's what makes it so good.

Chicken thighs came out perfect (moist and tender), but the sauce is a lot sweeter than we are used to. Might be the particular brand I bought, but with that amount of sugar I think it could stand up to a lot more Sriracha. CG suggested using it as a glaze for grilled chicken, and I might give that a try. Sparingly, though, as that stuff is pretty caloric.

You know you can put some cream in a small clean glass jar (not sure if it works with plastic), like a jelly jar or a pint jar, and shake it baby shake it and it will form whipped cream. Saw that a while back as a tip on some site a while back. It actually does work and only the jar gets messed up. Uses up a few of the calories you are going to be eating via the whipped cream too!

Definitely not the prettiest plate but our stuffed mirlitons with crawfish buttercream sauce and rice pilaf sure tasted good.
