What are you cooking?

Just curious-for those of us stuck at home in the huge blizzard coming our way( or has already hit)What are you cooking and how are you spnding your time stuck in the house?( Between snow removal) I made a pot of chili and a pot of chicken dumpling soup.Bob has decided its a good time to make his home made rolls/bread.We rented a couple of movies, and are going to settle in for the next couple days.

    It's a little chilly out here. 58 Degrees with 15 MPH winds at 5 PM MST. So I heated up some Home-made Bean soup I had in the Freezer. Would not be able to do any shoveling even if it snowed since I sold my snow shovel in a garage sale before leaving the Northeast!

    I haven't been near a snow shovel since I was 17. If someone has a need to get to my house then he or she will have to get there through whatever snow is on the ground. And if I can't get out of my driveway then I either walk, ski, snowshoe or stay home and make snow angels.

    We got the pasta machine out yesterday.  Nothing like homemade macaroni and meatballs.  The roads were bad, but once word got out, we had a house full of people.
     
    Started today with eggs in the basket, using the leftover Italian bread.
     
    Heavy layer of ice on the driveway and no sign of a plow yet.

    Machine? I'd have thought you'd be making your macaroni the old fashioned way. Or don't you know how to roll and cut?

    Well, it's 18 degrees with winds gusting to 40 mph and the power just went out, the effing generator won't start so we're huddled in front of the fireplace dreaming about cooking some beef stew to eat with some crusty bread.

    We're hosting several Egyptian kids and, as we always do when hosting Egyptians, made Thanksgiving dinner the other day.  Breakfast this morning was fried eggs on top of leftover stuffing with a touch of gravy.  A truly inspired combination -- even better if the stuffing contains sausage, which, regrettably the Egyptian-friendly version doesn't.

    I smoked a Top Round yesterday, started selling smoked Pit Beef sandwiches, cooked to rare/ med rare. Incredible moist and tender, and tasty. !/2 lb on a Kaiser, au jus on side. I would have pics but I had to fire my photog, she decided to start helping herself to an extra helping of cash.

    The sandwich sounds good, but it sucks that you caught someone helping herself to the cash.

    Cost me $2700.00 to put it in to catch her and another waitress, even though I have them on tape, they got the nerve to keep denying their thefts!

    Everything I could find in the frig into one pot.  First I found what turned out to be curry cubes (package in Japanese and Chinese only), one old potato, one onion, some squid, some salmon, some dry scallops, and some chicken meat (also found some frozen chicken, but it said best if used by Sept. 2009).  I was going to put it over pasta, but couldn't find any.  Someone above mentioned chicken and dumplings, so I made curry and dumplings.

    I grilled some pork chops last night while I could still get to the garage, had an Italian sausage omelet for breakfast before shoveling for 3 hours, and a can of Wolf chili for a late lunch afterwards.  There's a French loaf in the bread machine and later on I'm preparing some Cuban steaks known as "palomilla" from a Steven Raichlen recipe.
     
    Had a kid come to the door at 12:15 this morning; he'd gone off the road and was stuck pretty good.  I checked it out with him and there was no way he was getting out (the wind was vicious) so he arranged for a ride to pick him up and this afternoon he and some friends have been trying to get it out, so far without success.  We told him we'd help if he needed it but now we're both starting to feel the effects of this morning's manual labor so I hope he doesn't take us up on the offer.

    Improvise!  Is your fireplace wood burning?  Stack up some bricks on both sides and straddle them with a big pot of stew.

    On Saturday past here in DullAss it was 75. I cooked New Mexico Red Chile Pork Stew, sauteed yellow squash w/onions, garlic & jalapenos, & made some frijoles refritos. Good thing I did, because today it's hitting single digits & it is too friggin' cold to do anything except envy the gatos their fur coats! So I'm just heating it all up in the microwave... Not the gatos, of course...

    CTF, your smoked rare beef 1/2 Lb sandies sound wonderful. I want one w/smoked provolone & horseradish. Uuumm. I'm sorry you have to deal w/sorry a** employees. I often wonder how people can sacrifice their integrity for such minimal returns. I hope you find a new photographer soon because I love your Food Porn pics. Maybe you should take 'em yourself? 
     
    PLB, I don't think 2009 frozen "discoveries" are too old. I inherited the contents of my Mother's freezer(s) & roasted a whole rib-eye that was ... Dare I confess? YES! 10 years old! & it turned out fine! (I think it turned out OK because it was so big. Less old, smaller cuts did not fare as well.)
     
    Sir PapaJ8, our weather here HAS been weird hasn't it? 65 degree variance in just a coupla days! And that red chile stew is sooo easy. 2 Lbs pork dredged in flour, browned in a T or 3 of oil. Remove. Cool. Chunk. Then saute  a big ole julienned sweet onion & several smacked & minced cloves of garlic in the oil & toss in the left-over-from-dredging flour (@ 3 T) & cook a few minutes. Add a pint of stock (I used chicken) a pint of frozen red chile. (While I DO roast & freeze fresh green Hatch every Fall, I just let BUENO brand take care of my red chile needs.) Return chunked pork to pan & simmer until the pork is tender. Serve over rice (is nice).

    Ham and Bean soup, with potato and herbs.
     
    In large pot, sweated onion and carrots.
     
    Added Chicken stock and water and navy beans.
    Let cook.
     
    Beans plumping up, added smoked ham.
     
    Did not want broth too starchy, so I cooked potatoes separately.
     
    As soup seemed near finished, added potatoes and herbs.
     
    Came out great. Yielded a lot. Most was jarred up. And my goodness, was it good a few days later out of the jar and re-heated.
