I'm working Wednesday - Sunday this week, did my Thanksgivng dinner tuesday night. 5 pound 2 rib beef roast, smothered with a garlic and horseradish rub. Used the 5/500 method to cook it. I got too anxious on the yorkshire pudding, didn't wait long enough for the oil to get hot hot hot. Wasn't bad, but I've made better. The beef and the gravy, thugh, were spot on!

Could do this in time for the challenge, but I made a slow stock from the smoked turkey we had last weekend. It started snowing yesterday so it was a perfect day for French onion soup. The crouton is leftover garlic bread and the cheese is a mix of smoked gruyere and manchego - quite a nice blend. perfect with a glass of Port.

Venison liver, onions, bacon, mushrooms and potato. I trimmed the liver, soaked it in milk with garlic and hot sauce then did an egg wash and into seasoned bread crumbs. Fried in bacon drippings till just pink in the center. Not tough, very tasty and it's good for you. It doesn't get more "free range, or organic that this".

Pan seared Pork tenderloin with a blueberry demi, roasted fingerlings and baby carrots. A bottle of Alpine Beer co. Duet to wash it all down.
I did something similar. I did pan-seared thick pork chops with a blackberry jalapeno preserve. I was at a holiday fair this past weekend and one of the vendors was selling her spicy preserves. I like the blackberry jalapeno preserve she had. On a cracker, it tasted like it had more of a kick than hot or spicy. A one-pint jar was $7 . . . so why not.

Some friends from Welfleet, MA can up to hunt last week. On Friday we met up and John gave me a bag of Wellfleet oysters.
I have been guilty of trespassing on private property in order to get Welfleet oysters fresh out of the water. Yes, as good as any you can find.

Talking of oysters: saffron cured salmon with Malden oysters and home-made rye bread:

The oysters are huge - easily 4 to 5 inches long and bastards to shuck!

Made one of my favorite things today - Braised Rabbit with Pearl Onions and Morel Mushrooms. It's an involved meal, but well worth it. Nice meaty rabbit and dried morels along with pearls, shallot, garlic, white wine, and the liquid from reviving the mushrooms. All make for a delicious slow cook that yields tender everything.

I didn't make notes, but it's not that long ago...
I'm quite sure I used fish sauce, some chili's, garlic (obviously) and I think I used a bit of smoked paprika.
The cheese was a mixture of processed cheddar (processed cheese is all we can get) and some extra old maaslander (imported by myself on my last trip to Holland).
The big pie had egg in it, the small ones didn't (as my egg mixture was finished)

Yeh, fish sauce and garlic, who needs much more here, and I'd use a smoked gouda since I can easily get it.

After a week of party foods I made a really nice SALAD last night and it was just fine by us.

Happy New Year everyone!!! I made a proper New Years dinner - Michael Ruhlman's "Hoppin John", collard and mustard greens with ham and my sausage, "smutty" rice (sausage, no livers) and my first ever scratch made biscuits. (It's painfully obvious I need fresh baking powder.)

I too plan on having black eye peas on New Year's Day. Roasted some pork neckbones earlier to get some color on them, they went into the crockpot with some sweated onion, salt, pepper, and a dash of chili powder.

I was planning on serving the beans alongside some blackened shrimp. When I unwrapped the shrimp a few minutes ago, I remembered how long ago I bought them. Straight to the freezer for a while so they won't stink up the garbage can too much. Drat.

Guess I'll just have a bowl of beans before work.

So I got some fresh shrimp and some collard greens. Made some hock stock yesterday by simmering some smoked hamhocks in water for about 2 hours. Used that to stew the greens. So I got some South in my mouth, with a plate of blackened shrimp, the black eye peas and the collards. I will not be going to bed hungry.

Seafood chowder with local crab, scallops and clams.
I must have liked it. I noticed afterwards I'd burned my mouth.
