This was the main attraction at the pig roast we went to today.

chuck steak on the grill, with jumbo shrimp kabobs (kinda ;buffalo" flavored, spicy), garlic bread/toast, not sure what else. Thought we'd eat out, but decided to grill at home instead.

Made pesto crusted salmon, bruchetta, and risotto. I was teaching my oldest daughter (13) how to make a few things so we made bread from scratch starting in the morning. We made baguettes and a large sheet of cibatta for sandwiches tomorrow.

My daughter said it was too time consuming to make a dinner that large from scratch. But I try to explain that it is much cheaper and we really weren't doing anything else with our time. It is a gourmet dinner for 9 and it was under $20.
Two things make every meal better. Pork Fat and Carbonation. It's that simple.

Wow - you're lucky!!! Around here "Silver Queen" is a late-season corn. It won't be hitting our farmers markets or truck farmers sales for another month!

Right now we're getting the early-season yellows & bicolors, which, while nice & sweet, still aren't as good in my book as "Silver Queen".

Woo Hoo!!! Last night we christened hubby's Fathers Day pizza stone & peel gift & it turned out GREAT.

Bought some ready-made pizza dough at the market & let it rise, then spread it out & gave it a light coating of Ragu's "Pizza Sauce", a nice covering of grated mozzarella, sliced turkey pepperoni, dried oregano, & crushed red pepper flakes.

Preheated the stone for an hour at 500 degrees, & although I was nervous, the pie slid onto the floured wooden peel & onto the cornmeal covered stone like I was a pro - lol!! And in 20 minutes the perfect pie with a wonderful crisp crust slid back onto that peel just as easily. I'm so thrilled!

Guess we'll be eating a LOT of homemade pizzas from now on - lol!!
