What's for dinner Monday, Aug. 25th?

whatcha cookin' today?

i will be making a buffalo tongue in the crock pot, but i doubt it'll be ready by dinner time. maybe later tonight for a snack.

i'll probably end up grilling bone in chicken thighs unless i can come up with some other inspired recipe for them. suggestions welcome.

what's on your table tonight?

I'm making a small pot of stewed tomatoes and eggplant cutlets or a leftover stuffed pepper.

Too early to tell, I'm still sippin' my coffee!

did you ever make a tongue before, B? (cooked, i meant. not just sticking it out at someone).

Pickle the tongue as if it were a brisket. Even better, smoke it after it has sat in the bring for a few days. You can cook the tongue first, or pickle it first. What else do you have in that crockpot? I usually simmer it low and slow for about 2-1/2 hours or put it in the pressure cooker.

Many years ago, braised beef tongue and venison tongue with pickling spices, skinned them and sliced them paper thin for sandwiches, very nice dense fine textured meat.

Can't find them anymore all of the local butchers use vacuum-packed sub-primal beef cuts.

I suppose the tongues end up in the bologna bin or the hot dog hopper with the lips and .....

You can also use your favorite Sauerbraten recipe as a guide.

I have a condo board meeting tonight so I'll eat something quick. SO's son is visiting from Florida so they will probably go out for dinner.

Picked up a giant turkey drumstick when I was shopping the other day. It's in the slow cooker with onions, carrots, garlic, herbs, seasoning and chicken stock. Will have it with baby potatoes, peas and broccoli. Haven't christened the pudding yet.

Gruyere Puffs with Roasted Garlic-Tomato Sauce € Recipes € Hubert Keller

and Craig's homemade poblano chili pork sausages. The tomato sauce is already made so all I have to do is roast garlic, grate the cheese and make the pate a choux

I picked up some andouille sausage from a smokehouse over the weekend, and have a big pot of red beans simmering on the stove to serve with it.
