Sunday's dinner, Oct. 30th, 2011

i'm bored so i thought i'd start today's thread.

i bought a pork rib end roast to make today. i'll use it to make my pork roast with butter and apple gravy in the crock pot. i'll have to dig the herbs in the garden out from under the snow, but it'll be worth it.

the best part of this roast is that one end is very lean as a pork chop, and it gets fattier towards the other end so there's a cut for everyone. and the gravy comes out great!

so, what are you cooking sunday?

I think I'll be cooking my Spicy Turkey Stew
Although I'm really fancying a chilli. Or a beef casserole. Damn decisions!
Ok I'll get back to you

Beef stew here. It has been a cold weekend and comfort food is definitely needed.
Quoth the chicken, "Fry some more."

It's supposed to get up to 50 today and sunny. A welcome change.

The Browns are playing the Forty-Niners, so this weeks personal pigskin challenge will be that San Francisco treat... no, not that treat, the other one. Cioppino! A good day for fish stew.
Give us this day our daily bacon.

Decided on chili! Got a great bit of beef (that's what she said!)
And I love the 49ers! And the SF Giants :)

I have a couple of end cuts of top sirloin. It's destined to become swiss steak. I'll make some Yukon Gold mashed potatoes to pick up the sauce from the steak. Salad on the side.

Roast turkey. Freshly dug potatoes. Kale (or Swiss Chard).

It's chilly, and my heating unit isn't working, so I started a pot of baby lima beans with a couple of large pieces of smoked pork neck bones.

I may have to figure on cooking something else if it doesn't warm up a little. Baby limas cook up as quickly as split peas.

If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side.

I found some ribeyes on sale yesterday. Picked those up for tonight's dinner along with baked potatoes and salads.
I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

i turned on the heat for the first time this season. it is quite chilly here, and the wind is blowing. i think i'll be making lentils and sausage, with a soffritto base. the sausage i have on hand is new orleans style, smoked. i'm just not sure about seasonings--the sausages pack quite a bit of flavoring as well as some heat, so i may be good....
