    Last night I had soup and salad, tonight I'll eat the rest. Apparently Sams sells Panera Bread brand Broccoli Cheese Soup, and I just add a salad and I'm set. Salad has everything almost-cheddar, raw broccoli, raw carrots, onion, grape tomato, s&p, little ranch. Could use some fresh bacon bits though.

    Hey, I just made FF's two or three nights ago :)
    Had them with the last of the meatloaf and everything smothered in gravy.

    Tonight I'm sweet talking some pork chops into thawing faster.
    I'm not sure how they'll be cooked yet, but some home fries are in there somewhere.

    For meat I try to put it in the fridge 24 hours earlier (only burgers, steaks or chops) to thaw. I will put it under med water in the ziplock, but dont prefer it unless I dont have a choice.

    Heck man. I'm still using the black painted, grooved piece of aluminum (As seen on TV!) platter I was given by my mother 30 years ago!
    Works great. Just takes a couple hours.
    I never know what I'm eating 24 hours ahead. That's a long time. I could have died by then.
    Feed Jake.

    I try to plan ahead, when I forget its usually not nearly as good. When I finish supper I throw something in the refrigerator. I have ruined a couple pieces of meat by changing plans and thats just wrong. All wrong. :(

    Nice salad. Throw some garlic flavored croutons on there and I'd be in heaven.

    I went with fried. In lard :)

    I took my first shot at venison steaks made with my dads cast iron skillet. A little olive oil at first, then butter with Montreal Steak Seasoning. It was on point for the moistest, tastiest pan fried venison steak I have ever had. Doing this again!

    First time using lard and I've had a block of it in the fridge for a few months.
    I was pretty happy with the results.

    I had most of a Little Caesar's Supreme pizza for lunch yesterday, so supper was a couple slices of Swiss cheese.

    IMG_5593.JPG IMG_5592.JPG IMG_5591.JPG Suppose to get cold here. So tonight I made wifey and I an "eintopf". So we'd have leftovers! Kinda like a shepherd's pie kinda deal

    I used a 1/2 lb of ground elk, 2 sausage links, 2 slices of elk backstrap diced, leeks, minced garlic, paprika, a little Tony Chachere, black pepper, about 1/2 cup of leftover peas, sliced mushrooms all topped off with mash potatoes and lots of grated cheddar!!!

    It was very good!!

    Edit! Oh! And 3 big dollops( tablespoons) of hog lard to fry up in first.

    Sear it HARD and flip it over, baste continuously until cooked to just shy of what you like;

    Low side of mid rare for me please, she thought I said peas..
    IMG_4552.JPG

    My lovely bride felt like pasta and I'm absolutely sick of it, being a pasta making fool of a chef.
    So she gets meatballs, gnocchi and peas with a healthy grating of real Parmesan Reggiano.

    Bon appetit.

    VERY nice!
    I'm trying to get more into cooking steak in a pan, just so I can play with some sauces. I've always been a grill guy.

    Start with pork, the light meat will give you a better gauge of where your temp is. Then remove the protein to rest, pour off the fat, return the pan to the heat. Once the residual fat starts to lightly smoke add 1/4 cup of stock or broth, scraping the bits with a wooden spatula or spoon. Add a large spoon full of butter and a spoon full of mustard, whole grain is best. Reduce until thick and season to taste with black pepper and salt.

    Forgive me, no pics. Homemade Chicken Parm (homemade by Fieldcraftltc), homemade sauce from scratch (yep, I crushed the tomatoes, etc.), spaghetti zucchini squash.

    Low carb, high protein, and lots of flavors!!!

    BTW, I do rent myself out for cooking gigs!!!!
