Bought a big bag of dated green peppers at my local store for 70 cents. Made a giant batch of stuffed peppers, half to freeze to give out to my sister. They have been on simmer for hours and are really tender.

Dinner on the fly tonight between four solid hours of data entry and the monster trucks show. Went to http://georgiosgourmetpizza.com/ and had one Hawaiian and one pepperoni and sausage deluxe. They're kinda spendy, but ohmygod do they make fabulous pizza. And two slices with a drink is plenty for dinner!

  Just two photos from an earlier version of this same dinner...  as I was busy with the preparation for this evening's dinner.
Rack of Lamb (ribs) , w/ Oven-Roasted Potatoes and Asparagus.
Pan-seared the Lamb after dusting with some seasonings, then covered and continued to pan-fry the lamb to medium rare.
Heavy blanching the Stalks, then spread on cookie sheet and sprinkled Parmesean chees all over it, baked til cheese was browned (barely). Potatoes were good but didn't make the photos in our first try.
Here is the previous attempt at this combination. Turned out pretty good. Lamb was VERY tender and flavorful, and not gamey at all.
I love this combination...

The Lamb tastes every bit as good as it looks !!!

Al, That looks great and I'm sure it tasted great .....
 
I had a 5lb Chicken, so I cut up into pieces to use some for fried chicken, wings and back for stock for soup and the other half breast for either Chicken Cordon Bleu or Chicken Kiev. NIce to be able to get 3 or 4 meals out of one Chicken........This is the buttermilk fried Chicken, nice and crunchy on the outside tender and juicy on the inside. My wife made Potato salad, garlic toast and baked beans, it doesn't get much better than that...................pnwc

I actually had time between shows to go across the street for a monster burger! 1/2 pound of ground beef, stuffed with bacon and real bleu cheese, topped with onion, lettuce, tomato, cheese, and an onion ring. Happy hour pricing is $6.00, add $1.00 for onion rings. The knife sticking out the top (sorry the picture is blurry, I was starving and in a hurry) is the standard size steak knife, and you can only see about 1/4 inch of the blade. Gastric nirvana!
 


Of course, now I'm in a food coma and I have another show to do, but I'll manage.

PNWCHEF...the chicken looks good...was it fried or baked...???  If fried, what kind of oil...???
 
Last night was just a couple of kosher HN dinner franks...grilled...
 
I've been perfecting my grill timing...between rain & snow showers...whenever the rain or snow lets up, I ask myself "can I grill now"...???
 
This spring / summer I'll build some kind of vented enclosure for the grill, so I can grill in the winter time without wearing a parka...

Now I really, really want clams. Instead, I was once again completely uninterested in cooking, so I made some preformed broccoli and cheddar stuffed chicken breasts, microwaved a box of frozen broccoli in cheese sauce, and heated up a jar of Harvard beets. Perhaps tomorrow I'll feel like cooking.

Dinner...a real thick bone-in Noo Yawk steak...
 
I cook with the hood down for added baking action besides the direct and indirect flames...
 
The grill has 3 burners...I cook steaks in the middle with the flame up to sear, and down medium low to cook (the flame shields over the burners are called "flame tamers")...at the last minute I grease it with bbq sauce, and turn it a couple of times to put "flame on the sauce" to carmelize it some... the 2 side burners are going full blast to bring the temperature inside the hood up to 400* to 600* about 3 inches above the steak (kinda like getting a little flasher oven action going)
 

Yummy
 
I cook chicken and roasts slightly differently...after the quick sear the middle burner is shut off, leaving the 2 side burners to provide indirect heat for most of the cooking...and only turn the middle burner back on if I want to put flame to some bbq sauce at the last minute...
 
Sometimes I don't grease me vittles with bbq sauce, put rather serve it on the side...a really good hunk of roast beast can stand on it's own with only salt and pepper, and bbq sauce just sometimes gets in the way of the natural flavors...
 
I'm enjoying calibrating myself to this style of cooking...every way of cooking needs calibration, whether stove cooked, charcoal grilled, cowboy fire with open flame, or a gas grill...
 
This is the first winter in 14 years I've been able to grill outside between rain / snow storms...my previous method was oak downfall wood from my rancho and an open flame using a tripod cowboy chuck wagon type grill, but once the woodpile and fire pit gets wet at the beginning of winter, it was over until springtime...Now I can grill yummy stuff without regard to how wet the oak wod or fire pit is...as long as I have a long enough break in the weather I have the grill going at least 5 days a week since last June...
 
I see Grill Zone gas grills are are sale this week at True Value hardware stores in my area, possibly in your area also...

Has anyone here perfected the clean removal of the top part of the soft boilded eggshell?
 
I bought the scissor type and it laughs at me.
 
I bought the type that has a point that you turn around the egg and that doesn't work.
 
I spent a small fortune on a piston pull thing that I saw one of the TV chefs use and I think you need 2 or 3 people to help while you pull the piston.
 
I've always wanted to serve some sort of egg appitizer in the actual eggshell, but first I have to have a dozen perfect shells.   Perfect means the top edge is perfectly round without any chips.  There has to be a way!

I made Sloppy Joes the other night, I was really on my way back to a nostalgic trip back in time. I grew up with American Chop Suey ad it's the perfect comfort food for a rainy gloomy day. I was looking through the internet today to see if this has changed any for my earlier days in Connecticut. I saw this picture and thought, wow, it has changed and for the better. We all look for things to so with hamburger, this is the perfect meal to fill up a family. It also works well to kick it up a notch with some spicy Italian or Cajun sausage...........This isn't my recipe or pictures, I though you guys may enjoy this idea........... I think they did a great job making an old favorite New England dish look like it could be served in a fine dining restaurant...........pnwc

Fact is, growing up in Connecticut I never heard of American chop suey. I did eat chow mein sandwiches, though, at Nickel Charlies in New Haven. When I got to Ohio I learned of Johnny Marzetti, named for the brother of the woman who owned Marzetti's, a Columbus restaurant (same family as Marzetti dressings).

I took my mother out to dinner.  We went to The Main Course
 
http://themaincourse.biz/
 
It's right around the corner from where my mother lives and they serve wonderful European dishes.
 
Sorry for the quality of the pictures.  I'm learning my new Iphone AND I had to snap the pictures before my mother stuck in her fork.
 
I had the Stuffed Cabbage which was stuffed with ground turkey mixed with rice.  I usually hate stuffed things that are mixed with rice, but these were delicious.  They were served in a wonderful sweet and sour sauce.  They were very light.
 

 
My mother had the lamb shank.  She would have liked a sauce over them... which it had.  (She liked my sauce)
 

 
I highly recommend this restaurant if in the Century City area of Los Angeles.   The rolled cabbage was $12.95 and the lamb shank was $14.95.  If you wanted a cup of soup or a small salad it was an extra $2.50.

Mar, looks great I love Stuffed Kapusta, Holubky, Golabki, no matter how you say it, they are great. I grew up with these, never with a sweet and sour sauce. I always made them layered in a baking dish covered with diced tomatoes and the outer leaves of the cabbage. This helps them steam in the backing dish and makes a nice tomato base sauce........ I have seen a lot of recipes that call for a swwet and sour type sauce.

Slumgullion, WOW, thats a new one on me, so is Mish Mash. Although I could see myself yelling anyone want some more Mish Mash.

I also like the cabbage barely cooked so I quarter it, smear a little butter on the cut sides and microwave it for a couple of minutes. 
 
I found that I didn't like everything tasting the same when I boiled them all together.  The carrots and potatoes cooked with the corned beef.

That's what I think of as goulash, in both instances. What threw me was the American Chop Suey thing, which in my world has no ground beef (it's cubed steak), or tomato anything.
 
Tonight's dinner was catering, as I'm doing a show. Prime rib, mashed potatoes with garlic and parsley, broccoli with pine nuts, salad bar, cheese and homemade bagel chips, corn chowder, salmon, shrimp, and for dessert, espresso parfait.
