What's Cooking Friday, September 21

No thread started? What's up with that?

I'm working on cooking what's necessary from my latest bounty, hunted and gathered at the grocery stores(s).

The crabmeat that I wanted to stuff into portabella mushrooms, will be turned into crabcakes, now that I came up with a recipe that I think will work this time. I made salmon cakes that came out great, so I'll try that one. (Sorry Ma, maybe next time.)

I wanted whole portabellas, but was only able to find slices, so I'll just go ahead and cook some of them in garlic butter and have them on the side. (I got two packages, so I'll have more later.)

I also have a 2# pork sirloin roast that is in the oven now, braising over apple juice and covered with bacon since there wasn't much of a fat cap.

I'm cooking that really slow at 250, until an internal temp. of 185 for super tender pork. I'll put some in the freezer for later, and keep some in the fridge for dinner tomorrow, either BBQ or smothered in gravy.

I've also got the ingredients for super simple fudge, (chips, sweetened condensed milk, vanilla) and have walnuts, pecans and cashews to use, either, or all.

That's what I'm cooking today. What are you cooking?

We'll have hot dogs tonight. I actually have polish sausages to cook and will serve them like hot dogs. Have chili, cheese, sauerkraut for toppings. (I like the kraut, the guys like the chili). Not sure what will be served with them. I have some German potato salad or some leftover cheesy rice. Salads are possible also.

Leftover night here.

I'm not sure yet if it will be just straight leftover or if I'll get creative and make something new out of them.

Fancy French style butter with extra butter fat. The name comes French for more fat, "plus gras" (don't pronounce the esses).

Tonight's going to be a salad. Of course, it's going to be an epic salad, with lettuce, carrots, tomatoes, avocado, celery, green onion, sunflower seeds, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, pineapple, mandarin oranges, & probably chicken strips.
I basically just throw everything sitting around the kitchen into my salads XD
