Brined thick cut boneless pork chops, seasoned with HdP and well seared in duck fat, then finished in shallots and mushrooms deglazed with wine/Dijon/cream. Steamed broccolini, and one baked potato made a little seasoned potato casserole for him, and stuffed potato skins for me.

One grilled country style rib for tonight, the rest for leftovers. I let the ribs rest in a covered casserole dish when they came off the grill while I finished making the salad, and spooned some of the rendered fatty juices back over the ribs. They turned out fork tender and delish.

medtran, did you use the dough recipe, too? It's so much richer than the one I made (once), so it looks like it might be easier to work with, not to mention almost melty in the mouth. They certainly look good.

That looks like one spicy sauce on your pulled pork, s&p.

taxy, what is "ranchoid dressing"? BTW, your dinner looks yummy, too.


Himself had another sky viewing night, so I made an "eat it when you want it" supper. l sliced all of the leftover pork roast from earlier in the week and tossed it into the slow cooker with a bottle of Sweet Baby Ray's sauce, made potato salad and coleslaw, and finished up the last of the pickles from this year's Batch One. Lots of pork and salad for leftovers in a few days, just enough slaw for Himself.

I browned chicken thighs, then sautéed peppers and onions in the fat and added a sauce of cream of chicken soup, homemade Dijon mustard, a bit of leftover Alfredo sauce and Penzeys Fox Point seasoning.

Put the thighs back and simmered till tender. Served it all over rice blend of white, red and wild rice cooked with Fox Point and chicken broth. Pretty tasty.

All this food looks lovely.

Yesterday was insanely hit for being September in Sweden , it was like July. We was going to have Indian food, but I did a Columbus and ended up with Mexican. Lovely spicy chicken skewers with tortilla and veggies.

Yes. It was easy to work with, except it was starting to get a little sticky toward the end simply because it was so hot in the kitchen from the cabbage cooking and the water on the stove to boil. I'll post some comments on the pierogi thread about some changes I'd make.

Such yummy looking meals.

CG, ranchoid dressing is sort like ranch dressing. This time it was yogourt, mayo, garlic powder, onion powder, a splash of cider vinegar, and a couple of glugs of fish sauce.
