MsM, you're killin' me with that Devils Food Cake pic.

Kind of cool and cloudy today. I thought it would be a good day for split pea soup, so I've got a small pot of it simmering on the stove. I'm out of ham but found some cooked bacon in the freezer, so I'll chop some of that up and add it. A slice of garlic toast will accompany.

That's a drool-causing picture, msm. What ingredients do you need? I'll be there with a basket filled with them as soon as I can.

I have shrimp dry-brining in the fridge, have trimmed the green beans, and am just biding my time until I cook. Shrimp made it to the top of the menu right after seeing Kayelle's grilled shrimp in the Tajin thread. I will be basting them with butter and Tajin today. Thinking of sauteing blanched beans in bacon fat after I cook up some pieces. Salads, too, because my tub of mixed greens seems to multiply every night as we sleep.

Outstanding cake, MsM! I too would happily bring you any needed ingredients if you would make it for me!

I made soup with the leftover ham, cheese, and Tajin roasted cauliflower from last night. Good stuff.

Covering my eyes, looking between my fingers at that cake picture!! Dang!!

I'll be pan frying our favorite thick loin lamb chops from Costco. I like using just sea salt and Herbs de Provence. I'll do some onion and mushroom Orzo for him, and some roasted asparagus for both of us.

Porchetta pizza


Spinach and mushroom pizza


Margharita



I was so tired by the time we got done with these, up at 4 a.m. to work today, that I forgot to take a pic of the pepperoni. It was good too.

Dinner turned out wonderful.
I glazed the meatloaves with a mixture of (in order most to least): ketchup, sriracha ketchup, brown sugar, honey, sweet baby ray bbq sauce, apple cider vinegar, chili powder, cumin.

Ribs were great. I realized we had leftover potato salad, so we had that instead of cole slaw; I'll make that for the leftovers tomorrow. Also, we stopped at Aldi this afternoon and they had pineapple at a good price, so we bought one and grilled a couple slices. Sprinkled it with Tajin!

Wow, are we some good cooks. If we lived closer together we could start our own restaurant. Wouldn't THAT be something!

The verdict on our dinner tonight was "delicious". In spite of mixing a very generous amount of the Tajin into the melted butter, Himself and I didn't taste a lot of flavor. Sprinkled more onto the shrimp and that made a difference. I see a ride down to Aldi's this week - the one jar we picked up was in the middle aisle where they put their non-regular stock. I need more before it's all sold out.

Ended up making the beans with buttered almonds rather than searing them in bacon fat. I needed the second big burner to saute zucchini I found in the veggie bin.

The greens were tossed with homemade orange vinaigrette and poppy seeds, then topped with orange, strawberries, avocado, and candied pecans. I guess when I do "fancy" I have to go all the way.
