Friday,9-26-14, what are you bellying up to?

In answer to Rocklobster's question from yesterday's dinner thread. Pork belly with a rub of fresh thyme, S&P, then roasted at high heat for a bit, then down to 350 for a bit on a rack. Then transfer to a bed of apple slices, sliced onion and fresh sage to roast a bit longer to cook the apples/onions, which will be a side. Then will make gravy with pan drippings and cider. Roasted baby tri-color potatoes to go with. Trying a new recipe.

We weren't able to get decent pork belly until just recently.

For BT, had some Korean style a few weeks ago with gochujang and steamed yeast buns with a cucumber relish. Yummy!

I am at the farm and brought a big pot of cabbage roll soup out. Tonight I'm adding some more tomatoes, cabbage, hot sauce. I know--boring, but I was feeling lazy and thought a big pot of soup would be the perfect thing to feed me all weekend with extra stuff from the garden (salad, etc.).

Weather-wise it's more like summer here than fall and I tried to resist the urge to cook something autumn-like for supper. I'm weak! So...I threw in about a pound of soaked great northern beans, a couple of pounds of smoked turkey necks, lots of chopped onions and garlic, some chopped tomatoes, and gonna let 'er rip all day long. We'll have cornbread to sop up the goodness. Iced tea to wash it down and fresh raspberry cake as our sweet.

It's just too beautiful a day to spend it inside and I've been creating things to do outside for that reason. Later, I have a feeling I'll jump into the pool, clothes and all.

Life is good!

I'm making a soup to eat this weekend; pinto beans, smoked ham and bone, onions, garlic, carrots, celery, bay leaves, hatch green chili's.

Yesterday I made my first tortillas to go with the soup.

DH came home and asked "what are those?"

Not the correct question.

Trying out the new cast iron pizza pan GF bought for me. Bacon, sausage, mushroom, onion, and red pepper. I am famished. Will probably eat too much and regret it around 3:30 in the morning but, oh, well, bring it on!!

I just watched this TV program not long ago
and they were touting the virtues of spearfish vs line fishing.
When we were in Newport Beach California,
on the menu was spear-caught-swordfish,
couldn't really taste a difference to be honest.
