dw has a bridal shower to go to today, so i have to get up early to watch the boy.

not good for either of us. i'll only get about 2 hours sleep, and she will be in a room full of people who won't be speaking english for the most part, only macedonian..

i like my odds of having a good day better.

so i'll probably be grilling today. if the urge strikes, i'll even shake out the freezer and fire up the smoker.

how long do i need to brine small (under 1 lb.), whole trout for smoking? and i know there's turkey legs in there; maybe a corned beef.

cestiki!!!

Corfu, Greece: 60km. from Puglia, Italia

Saturday evening, the Vet and I celebrated his birthday at a lovely manor house, on a side alley lane, close to the Port ...

We shared uncountable Meze, small appetiser dishes of an array of local regional cuisine ...

Taramasolata
Grilled Octopus
Tzatziki
Feta: fresh sheep cheese, Kasseri which is a yellow Greek Cheese that is semi firm and is cylinder in shape & Kefalotiri, a Greek type Ricotta; Greek cheese platter ...
Greek yogurt
Dolmades filled with shrimp and pinenut & dill rice
Oregano, lemon, garlic roast lamb ( a tiny tasting because it is heavy at night)
aubergine

Just had some iced café and some fruit ... More than enough for me today ...

Have an enjoyable August.
Margaux.

Homemade sauce with tomatoes from the DIL's garden, a variety of herbs, both fresh and dried, plenty of garlic, pepperoni, and onions. Garlic bread...Avocado salad...
The FBS is in my future.

Low and slow oven ribs, cob on the corn. I had them all prepped to go to the cottage and do them on the smoker but the rain hit, and frankly, I don't want to pack, load and drive there just to sit inside. Going to stay in town and hit a few second hand stores.....Pics to follow, if I don't soak back too many wobbly pops........

not long. Fish flesh brines/marinates faster than beef/pork/chicken. Once thawed, an hour should do the trick.

"Hootenesca"

I'm having spaghetti, too. I'm making my sauce from the leftovers throughout the week; a little taco burger, onions, peppers and mushrooms, and I'll also add some zucchini because someone gave me a huge zucchini yesterday that I don't want to go to waste.
Just put me down for something with zucchini for dinner until about Wed or Thurs

If you're doing it from frozen go with 2 hours. It will thaw in the brine.

Dinner here is still being discussed, but I think I'm doing a pork tenderloin, a salad that includes avocado, tomato, cucumber and green onion, and maybe some romaine lettuce. I think I'll do something with the mango I bought too. Can you grill mango? I have pineapple to use up too. Mango, pineapple and a bunch of berries for a fruit salad maybe?
