Sunday Dinner January 5th 2014

Enormous pot of red beans and rice to share with friends and family at our house today. Mrs 40 C wanted a double batch...had to get down the 12qt All-Clad stock pot.

Boneless pork loin on a bed of kraut with some onions, carrots and dried mushrooms thrown in.

Wish I had some of that soggy pecan pie for dessert!

A little while ago I put a huge Boston butt in the oven. I liberally coated it with a variety of herbs and spices and put lots and lots of little garlic slivers in it. Smellin' pretty darn good right now. We'll have baked sweet potatoes and steamed Brussels sprouts as out sides. Hot tea to drink and, of course, more Christmas sweets for dessert.

We had family Sunday Dinner today. Jr called yesterday and said they are driving into the city and they would stop by. I asked how ‘bout lunch/ dinner. I asked them to pick up his mom on the way. Otherwise she is here faster than it takes to warm up the car.

Baked chicken and biscuits, turn out an additional recipe hot buttermilk biscuits on the side so there was plenty, honey and home-made tart cherry jelly. Scalloped corn casserole. Marinated sliced cukes, ( my summer pickles in winter), with halved and whole baby tomatoes, a few small onion rings, and one diced avocado added just before serving.

I put a pinch each of thyme, sage, and dried rosemary in the gravy sauce. I used quick blanched carrots, onions, frozen cauliflower and peas, fresh cooked green beans and there were still fresh peapods from Christmas that were still crisp as veggies with the chicken mixture.

For dessert we had cookies and ice cream. I knew Dx would bring cookies. She just does this-- Have cookies, will travel.

Another quickie meal here. Spent the day cleaning up Christmas and DH has been fiddling with the kitchen faucet that is leaking. We'll do up hot dogs and beans.
I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

As it's Sunday we nearly always have a roast dinner. Tonight it was a pork loin which I cooked according to Julia Child's covered roast pork recipe. Marinated in herbs, allspice and salt for 6 hours or so, then sealed and cooked in a covered roaster at 325 with onions, carrots and a little red wine. The OH said it was the best pork joint I'd ever made and as I've been cooking for her for over 30 years I'll take that compliment, thank you!

I just pulled a bunch of cold cuts and cheeses out of the fridge. I have half a recipe of pizza dough in the fridge from last weekend. It smells great! Now I need to find a good recipe for pizza sauce. I don't make it often, so I don't have one at hand. Hm. But I do have a marinara sauce I like. Maybe I'll just use that. Okay, off I go!

We are going out, just don't know where yet. I'm kind of in the mood for Asian, but don't know if it fits in my gallbladder diet. Sushi might be better.

Living gluten/dairy/sugar/fat/caffeine-free and loving it!
