Dinner, May 2, 2016?

Yesterday, I used a copycat recipe I had found previously and also watched the clip of the show on YouTube, plus used our own touches to make the Bolognese from Giuseppe's on 28th as seen on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. You can usually tell when Guy really likes something and he looked like he did with this sauce so thought I'd make it. Took just over 5 hours to cook, of which close to 1-1/2 hours was active time of chopping, browning, sauteeing, etc. The few little taste tests I took were pretty darn good. Craig really likes it too. Meat part is ground beef, ground turkey, italian sausage, bacon, chicken livers and b/s chicken thighs that are cooked whole in the sauce and then shredded. Vege are red onion, carrots, celery, lots of garlic (20 cloves). Dried thyme, red pepper flakes and fresh rosemary, plus S and P for the spice mixture. Liquid is cabernet, supposed to use ruby but we couldn't find so just used regular, plus they used water on the show. We used chicken and beef broth. Plus we also threw a parm bone in. The only tomato product on the show is 6 oz tomato paste. The copy cat recipe also used a 14 oz can of diced tomatos but I didn't use that.

The chef made fresh tagliatelle on the show, which I may do since sauce is already made (and it made A LOT!), depending on how the work day goes. Will give a final review later and post pics if it comes out as good as I think it is going to.

Dinner Monday, 5-2-2016

I'm about to toss beef chunks and stuff into the slow cooker to brew up a batch of barbacoa meat. I'll serve them up with onions (white and scallion both), tomato, fake cilantro (parsley) and avocado. Is there anything else you can suggest? Thinking of a veggie side of grilled corn (frozen last summer) and black beans seasoned with Arizona Dreaming.

What's happening in your kitchen?

Tex-Mex stuffed red bell peppers, green salad. I've had this recipe on my to-do list for a bit, and it happens to be vegetarian (black beans, corn, onion, rice, pepper jack cheese). We're not vegetarians, but figured that a vegetarian meal every now and then won't hurt me, as long as I do it in moderation.

Baked ham, sweet potatoes with pineapple, steamed broccoli, iced tea and, drum roll...strawberry pie made with the first local strawberries of the season. I think I'll begin with dessert.
