I fired up my smoker at 6:20 am this morning. I've got a pork picnic shoulder going right now. In about 40 minutes, I'm going to pull it out, wrap it up, and get it into a slow oven for another 4 hours. Once it's done, I'm going to pull it and make a Posole for dinner tonight. Hopefully I'll have a little extra left over so I can make some BBQ sandwiches, quesadillas, or enchiladas as well.

Sattie's duck made w ginger, soy and honey is my inspiration for a whole roasted chicken. Going to put a sliced orange in the cavity, and orange slices in the pan. Potato, mushroom, onion & gruyere gratin on the side - either steamed broc, snow peas or green salad. Depends on if I get to the market today & what fresh ingredients look good.

When's supper Allen? And how do we get to your house--my goodness I'm salivating that sounds so good

Pork tenderloin, corn on the cob, tossed green salad, broccoli,onion and mushroom quick stir fry, and whole wheat rolls. Some watermelon for dessert. For the tenderloin I'm experimenting with adding some orange marmalade and Asian sweet chili sauce to some canned whole berry cranberries as a side sauce. So we'll see how that concoction goes. Darling daughter is coming home after spending nearly 2 weeks overseas so thought that she might like some comfort food--as she is 21 I also have some Fosters cooling in the fridge!!
