What's for Dinner? Friday January 3, 2014

Made some Barbacoa tacos using the sous vide method for an upcoming video.

1 2 pound Beef Cheek
1 Chipotle Pepper
1 Chile California
4 Chile Piquin
1 teaspoon Sea Salt
1 teaspoon ground Chile Gualillo

20 hours at 185F.

This should also work in a crock pot on low but not for as long.

PPO, you've done it again, drool all over the keyboard (again). Great photos, as always. Slurp!

Today was payday and shopping. I've got one sirloin pork roast just done. It was marked down 1/2 price! So a nice hunk of that will be dinner.

I think Tacos rank right up there deserving their own food group, just like ice cream, chocolate, beer and bacon do.

I'm having Costco rotisserie chicken, just the legs, so that critter can't run away before becoming weekend casseroles. There's also buttered corn and a spinach salad. Milk and chocolate chip cookies.

Colder than a witches' here so a bit of Quinttessential American Food is in order. Went at some frozen turkey leftovers and made up some turkey and biscuits.

What a coincidence! Found some turkey in the freezer leftover from Thanksgiving and whipped up a quick turkey ala king and served it on toast. Not bad.

I had turkey and biscuits for lunch yesterday! It doesn't get more comfort food than that.

I'm having beer and Klondike Bars for dinner. Almost out of beer, but I've got enough KB's left

I'm having some leek and potato soup I pulled out of the freezer. We're running out of easy food. Almost no bread, 2 eggs. I do have a bunch of cheese, so I'll probably snack on chunks of cheese.
