Braised country style pork rib tacos with fresh cilantro, shredded red cabbage, and my homemade salsa. Going to use chipotles in adobo, onion, garlic and some other spices during the braise.

    Quickie supper night here. Raining and grey for the third day calls for Spag with meat sauce (with ground venison as the main meat, but some pork and beef mixed in there also(. One loaf of Garlic-roasted Bread, sliced and garlic-butter spread as well as the cloves included in the dough of the bread . Pot is simmering now, warming this end of the house and making the place smell great.

      Mayor Al - your dinner sounds like just the thing for the crappy weather we've been having to deal with here also for the last three days. 
        
      We usually grill almost every night but the rain has been relentless so last night we opted for a shrimp boil with artichokes and potatoes.  With the rain continuing today and the temperature dropping I decided to do a pasta and garlic bread thing tonight - but after I got home this afternoon  the rain had finally stopped and there was a light north wind  I fired the grill up and threw on a pork filet.  Made a light potato salad and some sauteed cabbage.
       
      For tomorrow night?  I'm thinking.....

        OK. It's not for dinner tonight, but on Sunday night I tucked into one of the most magnificent meals I've ever enjoyed. The resident chef served roast duck (and, oh, the skin was so crispy) with a wonderous, velvety sauce; turned, glazed turnips and carrots; and the finest potatoes it has ever been my good fortune to eat -- Pommes Darphin. This repast was enjoyed with a Rodney Strong pinot noir.

          She is a Master of the Kitchen Arts, is she not ?  While not a real 'Duck' fan, I would walk a mile (a big deal for me) for some of that crispy skin !!
           
          Oh and I would sip a Slushee Cup (44 oz) of Apple Vodka and sweet fresh Cidar while crunching my 'duckskin'.

                I'm doing just fine. And as I recall, that football game accident happened at the Hillhouse-Harding game on a Friday night in Bridgeport. Oh, and it wasn't a hotdog and mustard. It was a razor blade in the Harding defensive tackle's taped hand.

                  That's why they stopped the night games.............I never missed a Thanksgiving day football game, even after they threw me out of Harding High School...................

                    One of our guys -- Laury Zernitz -- kept a sharpened Phillips head screwdriver taped in his waistband for use when needed in piles.
                     
                    Considering the thugs they allowed to stay at Harding you must not have been very nice.

                      Sounds perfect. 
                       
                      I had eggs and hash browns at IHOP.
                       
                      Now I 'm looking forward to the Pommes Darphin recipe.

                          Ah, well the recipe will have to come from lleechef. But I should warn you -- lleechef made me leave the room when she was making them. I did manage to learn that she included some duck fat, though.

                            "Roast Beast"...???
                             
                            Does this mean they're not sure what it was...or are they just not wanting to make it public...???
                             
                            Last night was simple...2 grilled burgers after a long day...no rain for the last 10+ days so the tarp IS off the grill again...
                             
                            The grease (bbq sauce) was from Shamus T Bone restaurant ( I ate there 2 monthe ago) and the sauce has raspberry in it, which seems to be an emerging fad...btw, the CFS I ate at S T Bones was super crispy, just the way I like it, with gravy on the side, not smothering the CFS...
                             
                            I'll be leaving to go "down the mtn" today into "town" and who knows what dinner will be...but when I get back it'll be dark so I'll turn on my LED xmas lights to greet me upon my return...

The resident chef served roast duck (and, oh, the skin was so crispy) with a wonderous, velvety sauce; turned, glazed turnips and carrots; and the finest potatoes it has ever been my good fortune to eat -- Pommes Darphin. This repast was enjoyed with a Rodney Strong pinot noir.

                              So did you bag the Duck yourself?

                                No. lleechef bagged it at Giant Eagle. This was just the third or fourth domestic duck I'd ever tasted. Frankly, I never cared much for domestic waterfowl. This bird changed my mind.

                                  It was actually a very simple meal that I whipped up at the last minute.  The pommes darphin consist of potatoes, salt, pepper and duck fat.  Easy.

                                    Duck fat is never a problem as long as I have gas in the car.  It's in the display case next to the rabbits.

                                      I dusted off my mandolin and it will be set up and ready in May.
                                       
                                      Then again it's a last minute item which is not a good thing... for my culinary skills.
                                       
                                      We'll see.

                                            Dinner tonight was  Chicken Fried Steak at Be Bop's Diner in Ukiah...while watching a young person take the "Belly Buster" challenge of a foot tall, 3 pound, 11 patty hamburger...he was just a few bites away from making it within the 1/2 hour limit...

                                              Feels like it. The guy I've been seeing off and on has strep throat, and I suspect that's the direction I'm heading. Or the flu. Blech.
                                               
                                              Anyway, tonight I made my recipe for gumbo. Couldn't taste much, but I know it's good. Plus, it makes a huge vat, so later I'll get the full flavour.

                                                "Roast Beast"...???

                                                Does this mean they're not sure what it was...or are they just not wanting to make it public...???

                                                 
                                                NO it is just an homage to Dr Seuss & The Grinch

                                                  I guess I'd rather have "roast beast", than green eggs and ham...but then again, roast beast could mean just about anything exotic, such as monkey brains, eels, or python steak...
                                                   
                                                  I need a good dinner tonight to make up for last night...
                                                   
                                                  I got a new road atlas for Calif, and I spent the entire night thumbing through it...looking at places I've been, and also places I've not been to yet...
                                                   
                                                  It was after midnight before I realized how late it was, so I had a handful of Wheat Thins for dinner...
                                                   
                                                  I will make amends tonight...

                                                    I'm thinking of having a few slices of olive loaf for dinner, with a couple of bites of Gorgonzola.

                                                      I love olive loaf!! Boars Head makes an excellent one.

                                                        That's what I have.

                                                          I decided it was time to cook.
                                                           
                                                          I saute-ed peppers and onions with Italian sausage.  I cooked them with some wine, jarred sauce and lots of seasonings to be served over linguini.

                                                            Um, that looks really good.
