What's on the menu Sunday 4/14/2019?

I got my free ham from Shop Rite. So I broke it down and boiled the bone. I had ham and green pepper scramble for lunch. I think we will have split pea soup tonight for dinner. My hands are really painful for the last week so soup will be easy.

Let us know how you did your sear at the end. And, how it turned out.

I haven't found burgers to be any better cooked sous vide, so I am curious what you think, and how you did yours.

Don't get me wrong, I love sous vide cooking. But, some things seem to be a perfect match for that technique, and others are kind of, meh.

I'd love to hear about your experience.

Right now, at 3:40 in the afternoon, I've got a riff on spaghetti carbonara bouncing around in my noggin. It won't be authentic, for sure, but is uses things I have on hand, and things I like.

I want to try to incorporate some kind of sausage into the cook. I looked in my freezer, and I have WAY too much sausage in there.

Cut a couple of sausages into coins, put in a pot with pasta sauce and let it flavor the sauce. Serve with pasta of your choice. Happy eating!

Thanks. I pulled some really good German smoked sausage from Central Texas (settled by German immigrants), and plan to use that. If it doesn't render enough fat, I can add some olive oil and butter.

It will be a "shoot from the hip" carbonara-like dish, but I think it will be good.

Felt like comfort food tonight, so it was meatloaf, mashed potatoes, and asparagus.
