I made butter from 1 qt. of heavy cream. It gave me about a pound - give or take, and about 1-1/2 pints of whey (buttermilk) for the dogfood and making homemade biscuits topped with homemade strawberry preserves tomorrow morning for a Sunday breakfast!

Of course, both of them were totally ripe this morning so I made the gazpacho and enjoyed some for breakfast. Mmmmmm!

I cleaned and chopped up a couple of bags of scallions and got them in the freezer.

I made a container of pimento cheese with some bleu cheese crumbles.

I used about 4 oz. extra sharp cheddar, 1/4 cup grated 3 cheese parm., and about 2 oz. bleu cheese crumbles. I tasted it before I put it in the fridge for sandwiches. MMM mmm.

Next, I took all of the drumsticks I had from the 10# bag of chicken quarters I had separated yesterday.

What's going on in your kitchen today?

I've got them in a gallon zip bag with lite soy, brown sugar and crushed pineapple w/juice.

Next, I plan to get a beef stew started with a baggie full of braised chuck.

That's what's going on in my kitchen today.

What's cooking in your kitchen today?
Wow, that's a lot of cooking in one go.

Now I have seen you use the term "3 cheese parm" twice. What is it?

The plan is to make a Danish pork meatloaf for supper. This time I checked early and made sure that the ground pork is not frozen.

I'm smoking some Berkshire pork belly on the charcoal grill today. Couple some of that with BBQed potatoes and some grilled watermelon salad, and I'm going to be a happy girl.

After 15 days on the road, I am craving home cooked food. Am pressure cooking some rice to go under sautéed chicken, broccoli, cabbage, onions, garlic, green pepper, parsley and carrots.

Since Mother Nature is providing weather more like summertime we're having a summer-type meal.

Grilled hamburgers, homemade potato salad, corn on the cob, sliced onions, and pickle relish made from Famous Dave's Devil's Spit Pickle Chips, iced tea and homemade strawberry sherbert for dessert.

P.S. Famous Dave's pickles are awesome. They pack quite a lovely punch!

It's made by Kraft. It's Parm, Romano and Asiago. Good stuff.

Well, with all that cooking, I'll finally have a little room in the fridge. The other advantage is that once I gat my kitchen cleaned up, I won't have to cook or clean the kitchen for awhile.

If I didn't do all that cooking, my fridge would be so stuffed I wouldn't be able to find any thing

We don't have a grill here at the apartment in Honolulu (against local ordinance), so I broiled a Strip Steak (we share just one steak) and added Tako (Octopus, it's cooked) and Ahi (Tuna, raw) Poke along with some steamed white (sticky) rice and a salad of fresh, local veggies from
the Farmer's Market.
ONO (delicious) !!

I was in the commercial kitchen all day. I am having steamed wild asparagus. That's it. I don't feel like cooking and I don't feel like washing too many more dishes.
