National Cheese Lovers Day Dinner - 1/20/2019



I made a thin crust cheese pizza for lunch, and have a slow cooker full of chili going for dinner. I'll have to grate some cheddar to go on top.

I'll be back out with the snow blower late this afternoon. We only got 5 inches or so last night, and not the foot they were predicting. We are supposed to be getting freezing rain this afternoon, but it's just been sleeting. Freezing rain is the worst - it brings down trees and power lines, not to mention making driving treacherous.

We love Cheese!
I like the softer ones, while DH prefers Hard Cheese aka Parmesan.
So, for supper I'm putting that pan of Three Cheese Lasagne into the hot box
(I didn't make it the other night after all)
and a loaf of No Knead Roasted Garlic Clove Bread
Can't Wait!!!

Our grandson is here for two days and he did yeoman work today clearing snow and ice. We try to have his favorite meals.

I further reduced the load in the freezer by using a meal of Sunday ragu with meatballs and sausages over spaghetti. It was a hit.

Yep. We don't get much snow down here, but we do get ice storms. I've seen some beautiful live oks split in half by ice. It makes me almost want to cry. As for driving, I've owned four Audis, with quattro. Great in snow... useless on ice. If the road is covered in ice, or packed sleet (we get that here, too), leave the car parked.

Hey, it's a great excuse to stay home and cook! And EAT!!!

Mix those cheeses. Some fresh Mozz with a sprinkling of freshly grated parm-reg on top is a perfect bite, IMO.

Nice!

Pork loin is great for sous vide. I see a little hint of pink in the loin photo. Sous vide cooking lets you do that, and not worry.

Are you old enough to remember when any sign of pink in pork was considered certain death.

Fantastic looking dinner!

Thanks..I brought it up to 140 for 10 hours..that pink part is the cap and for some reason it stays that color..But, you are right about pink pork..I can eat loin done to medium but no less..we grew up with trichinosis..I believe that has been eradicated for the most part..one good thing about commercial farming, I guess..

As for me...

Woke up this mornin' just about noon
Rolled back on over, it was way too soon
My sensibilities hadn't stirred you see
Might bother some, but it don't bother me. -- Little Feat, Ain't had enough fun.


Nothing worth mentioning to eat at the doghouse tonight. Just grazing.
