cold, Cold, COLD here today, perfect weather for soup. I had a leftover smoked pheasant carcass so I'm making 15-bean soup with that instead of smoked ham hocks. It has been simmering for a while now and smells wonderful. There will be some fried bread for dunking and some veg too, but not sure what yet.

Just shave the ground beef off with your spatula as it cooks. Assuming you are using it for meat sauce...

Rock, the chicken and roasted veggies look perfect. We don't have Swiss Chalets in the US. Can you describe their sauce for the unitiated? Thanks.

Thanks! It's kind of a tangy, chicken based dipping sauce. I can give you a recipe that is pretty close. It is made with a bit of broth, tomato juice and seasonings, which is thickened with some corn starch, so if you don't like it, it isn't a big waste...I like it with plain oven roasted chicken. Swiss Chalet makes rotisserie chicken, but as long as it is a crispy skinned roasted bird it's cool

That's a pretty big recipe. I would cut it in half. You don't need much. 2 or 3 ounces is plenty per serving...

Bunless burgers tonight. Don't let the juice on the plate fool you, there was still plenty in the burger. The lettuce covers it up but there is a portabella cap with melted swiss cheese under there. We were out of tooth picks so a scewer held it all together. It was ridiculously good.

It's a South African- Portuguese combination. Steak rolls with homemade chilli sauce made with red wine


This is a prego roll...
