I haven't put them to the fire yet.
That will be in a hour or two.

They sounded good so I hope they taste as good as they sound and that I don't screw em up by overcooking them.

You use what you have and improvise as you must.

If they turn out good I'm hoping for lunch for a couple of days.
If they don't I'm sure the wild critters outside my door will enjoy them.

Lovely dinner, CakePoet. Sorry to hear the dessert didn't sit well.

Zagut, those chops look great...but a bit undercooked? I hope we get a review and a photo of the finished product.


As long as the weather holds out, Himself will be grilling burgers. Sides will be oven roasted potato wedges and the first pickles from Batch 3. Maybe something else on the side for color...

Please let me know. I'll make it if you say it's good. It sure does look interesting.

Thanks for the thanks Dawgluver.
Now can you give me any advice on how to post the pics in line with my posts?

At the moment it's all hit or miss with a puter dummy like me.

What's cooking Sunday 9-18-16?

Oh geez, Zagut, I'm no expert! We'll have to ask Janet H or some of our more computer-savy members.

I take pics with my iDevices, and they post OK. I thought your pics looked fine. I usually just post a pic after I say something, then another pic after I say something else. They seem to show up on the same post.

They are NOT ! undercooked.

You've heard of Steak Tartar haven't you?

Well these are Piggy Tartar

I'll post pics of the finished product but I still can't figure out how to put them in line on the post.

New recipe that sounded good and it was very good. Spatchcocked chicken marinated in a balsamic, honey, dijon, basil, oregano, S AND P mixture, then roasted over a bed of potatoes, carrots, criminis and brussel sprouts. I precooked each of the veges individually in the microwave in a shallow dish with some water. Veges were perfectly done.

AND since we were using the oven, I cut another chicken in half and rubbed one half with sage, butter and S and P. This will be used for pot pies later in the week. The other half got an olive oil, cumin, S and P rub and will be used for fajitas. They are small chickens but a fab price.

I also made individual flans, but savory with leeks, garlic and half of a large potato. The veges all got gently sauteed in butter until they melted, then they got zapped in the food processor with a bit of cream until smooth and then went into rest of flan mixture. Had to try one, YUMMY! They will be a side for lamb lollipops. Left them slightly undercooked so they can be rewarmed without being overcooked.

Been doodlin' around all day and trying to do something interesting for dinner that required not much effort. Ended up making chicken cacciatore per Giada De Laurentiis. Sure smells good. Will use up some baby limas as a side and slather on some real butter on some potato rolls I made this afternoon.

I bought a (I'm sure) brand new bread machine for a friend at a thrift store and I've been putting it through a few tests. Love having to eat the results.

We are having neighbors over for a simple dinner; pasta salad with garden vegetables, chicken salad with the same, fresh pesto on sliced herbed toasted long skiny bread loaf, and they are bringing a pear tart. All to be enjoyed with Long island Iced Teas

I have a code. Had a headache all day and feel like crap, but we have to eat and DH has been doing outside chores all day, so time to step up.

Going to prep some chicken wings to roast and toss with a spicy honey glaze, watermelon-feta salad and maybe a green salad if I have enough energy.
