I picked up some corn on the cob from the roadside stand with the full intent to grill some along with some meat for dinner.
I took out two packages of pork loins and was going to grill them both up using some SBR, but only package is going on the grill. The other package contained cut up pieces of pork loin So that package is going in the CI skillet along with some potatoes and onions already frying in bacon grease and I'll make some kind of gravy with it.
So basically I am cooking two dinners and will choose between one. I'm still leaning towards the grilled dinner.

I'm about to put these beautiful loin lamb chops on the grill along with asparagus. Potato salad will round out the menu.

More super fresh corn. Mind you, maybe it was on the roadside stand for weeks, getting covered in exhaust fumes....

Winged it with a sauce tonight. I had 4 button mushrooms left so I shaved them, threw in some garlic, green onion, loads of parsley. After searing the filets and putting them in the toaster oven with the spuds to finish, I threw everything in the pan, deglazed with a bit of Madeira wine and some beef stock, fresh ground black pepper and let this reduce to almost nada. Then, spooned the results on the steak... turned out pretty cool tasting, actually...

Ain't that the truth!
I've had corn brought up from the southern states that was better than the *fresh* stuff for sale locally. What the stands don't sell goes back out the next day. At least grocery stores get it in pretty much daily and move (sell) it.
But this time it was pretty darn good!

Pacanis. Did you have the fresh corn with proper butter?

(No margarine nonsense.)
