Monday, January 19th already

I plan on fixing fat sausages, sauerkraut, mashed potatoes and will incorporate a green chile in there somewhere.

What's cooking at your place?

I'm determined to dirty up my new stove today.

The menu will be something like yours Beth. I'll be doing a one skillet meal with a bed of cabbage, onion, potatoes, and big fat sausages on the top. Wish I had an apple.

We enjoyed the last CP pulled pork I made so much that I had to try and duplicate it. Last night I threw a bunch of spelunked ham and pork loin chunks into the Nesco along with some diced onion, garlic, diced hot red peppers, and a bit of maple syrup, and slow cooked it. Ate some today with my beloved pickled red onions and a squirt of Sweet Baby Ray's. It was delicious if I may modestly say so. Have more than enough to freeze.

Cleaning out the freezer still. Potstickers and poppers.

I've been wanting liver for a while. Unfortunately the store only had frozen calves liver packaged in those little packets where it looks fabulous and ends up sad once it thaws. So, the liver was thawed and placed in the sous vide. It came out tasting mild and fabulous, though it took on a lump-like shape in the sous vide. Onions had been sauteed until thoroughly caramelized, and then the liver was browned in the same skillet and the skillet was de-glazed with a splash of white wine. Instead of potatoes, cauliflower proceeded with a chunk of cream cheese, butter, and a splash of heavy cream, salt and a bit of pepper. Unsweetened lemon jello for dessert.

Meat-za here too!

Topped with seasoned tomato paste, two kinds of cheese, red onion, black olives, pickled hot pepper rings.

I used the frozen "crust" I had stashed in the freezer. I cut the zip lock bag open with scissors and laid the crust on a baking sheet for about ten minutes to thaw before popping it into the oven.

2nd day in a row the temp is above freezing. And that means Grilling Weather. I pulled the Smoky Joe from the garage and set it on the back stoop.. Marinated grilled chicken and skewered Brussels sprouts.

What better way than to break in my new stove than with a dish I grew up on. Smells like home to me. Now I'm cookin'! That big burner is a dream!

It's a happy thing when the replacement appliance meets expectations, Kayelle! I hope it brings you many happy meals...that you share with US, of course!
