What's Cookin' Tues. Nov. 22nd???

I'll be starting my dinner around noon today (no, I'm not BBQing anything).
I bought a beautiful looking chuck roast the other day. I'm going to cut it in half and freeze half, then season the other half, sear it in a skillet, and lay it in my slow cooker with some veggies, seasoning and a minimal amount of water. I've got some putzing around to do outside today and I'll save that for the afternoon, because nothing smells better than walking back into the house after being out in the cold and smelling that roast cooking away. Well, maybe baking bread does hmmm, I think I'll bake a loaf of bread today, too.

Give us this day our daily bacon.

I'm making barley stuffed poblano peppers. My own concoction.

I roast the peppers over a gas flame until charred. Let them cool in a paper bag and peel, split and seed them.
Cook some barley in vegetable broth until just tender to the bite. Saute some frozen corn, can of black beans (drained and rinsed and drained), the barley, salt, pepper, dried oregano and granulated garlic. Stir in some toasted pecans and a small handful of raisins. Stuff the peppers with that.
Make a sauce of soaked dried California red chiles, garlic, oregano, chile soaking liquid, sesame seeds, s/p, tsp honey and 1/4 tsp unsweetened cocoa all whirled around in the blender.
Place the stuffed pepper into a dish that is spread with a bit of the sauce. Small amount of sauce added to the top of the filling also. Bake at 350 for around 15-20 minutes. Sprinkle a bit of shredded sharp cheddar on top and bake another 5 minutes or until the cheese melts.


¿Como como? Como como como.

Its warmer today, but still really overcast. I'm waiting on an inspector to come and check out my furnace etc. If they hurry up, I will be able to shower and get out for a loaf of french bread and I'll leave roast beef melts for the family. If not, they get the frozen homemade pizza in the freezer. I'll be eating at work and have no clue what is being served.

macaroni and cheese with hotdogs and some kind of veggie thrown in.
A little kindness goes a long way.

Tonight I have a condo board meeting so we'll be eating separately and whatever is available.

I may make an omelet with some of the ham steak leftover from last night's dinner.
