Marinated and grilled center cut pork chops, with oven-roasted cauliflower. The former had a mix of chipotle lime marinade, apple cider vinegar and Dijon mustard. The later was tossed in olive oil, kosher salt, fresh cracked pepper and chipotle powder. A simple but delicious meal. 

Fine dinner at Café Boulud tonight. Roasted beet salad, followed by Peekytoe Crab capellini and sautéed spinach, accompanied with a 1990 Beaucastel.

My son is home from Africa for a wedding and his girlfriend is here with him.  She is a pescatarian, so we've been eating a lot of seafood this past week.  Grilled up some Sea Bass, Halibut and Salmon.  They were downtown last night, so the Mrs. and I had some smoked chicken breasts.  My wife, who would eat beef everyday is going loony.  Good thing there is some steak on the horizon next week...

Home alone for the week while FKG is in Vegas for a conference. Last night

Grilled rib eye

Grilled chicken to have over next few days

Sweet potato fries from Trader Joes

 

BGE roast rack of provimi veal

Caramelized fennel and sage risotto

Chard with anchovy

Some langhe nebs and a blueberry pie.

 

 

 

Grilled Jelepeno and peca pesto pizza, bella rosted chicken & bravo mexican pizza. All the credit goes to my portable wood burning pizza oven. It makes cooking such recipes easy for me. 

Leftover fried rice.  Two over easy eggs on top.  Smashed together with a healthy squirt of Sriracha.  Frikkin' delicious.

Grilled Coho salmon with basil pesto, roasted red potatoes with rosemary and garlic, Grilled corn on the cob with chive butter, and a salad with garden tomatoes.

With all of the fresh ingredients, August - October is the best time of year to cook.

Red wine braised short ribs of beef.  Disaster!  After the ribs were cooked and placed in the oven to stay warm, I got distracted while reducing the braising liquid.  I returned to the stove to find the liquid reduced all the way to dried black char in the skillet.  Necessity being the mother of invention, I found some teriyaki sauce, poured it over the ribs, and made a meal of it.

Turkey chili with beans. Gotta horrify the Texans once in a while. 

Hell, Bill... you just horrified a Yankee with that post.

Now I can horrify everyone - McDonald’s happy meal. Certainly not the plan, but sometimes life jacks with you.
