I'm channeling pacanis today and grilling wings. Not at all sure what we'll have to go with it. I'll think of something.

Sounds good.

I have a pork belly braising in the oven in stock and spices. Going to take it out after two hours and put it on a rack and crisp it up for an hour. It's going to be served with fried rice and stir fried vegetables with almonds....

Sounds good, all.

I'm having pan seared scallops, steamed green beans with almonds, and maybe some of the potato salad I made yesterday.

I needed to s/thing with the 3 lb of Swiss Chard leaves I brought home...I think I have enough Swiss Chard Pesto in the freezer for 30 meals using pesto...that's a month's worth and the chard is still going gang busters.

I made this:

Recipe Details

For my crust, I went with:

1-1/4 c AP flour
1/4 c chickpea flour
1 tsp salt
Fresh ground pepper
garlic powder
grated parm.

1/4 c lard
1/4 c Crisco

3 T ice cold (from the freezer) water
1 T cider vinegar

I changed up the recipe by using Greek Yogurt instead of ricotta (I didn't want to open a 32 oz. container), whole milk instead of whipping cream, added bacon, and topped with bacon and more grated sharp white cheddar. I also added about 1 c of leftover kale from breakfast.

Let me know how that channeling works for you--I have wings in the freezer and was thinking of doing the same thing later this week..

Surprised, CWS, that you did not sneak a few eggs into your recipe
