still have pork chops in the fridge. still don't wanna cook them. was really hoping DS22 would work his magic in the kitchen.

Toss them in the crockpot with your favorite BBQ sauce. Then you can just reheat them whenever your ready. That way they don't spoil.

black bean burger

Okay how does the black bean burger work? Is there any meat? Just black beans mixed in? This sounds strange. Curious.

I like to use the Zatarain's Crab boil
Just the word Zatarain makes me quiver.

Also...Nutella! If you have not yet tried it there is an organic Nutella like product called Nocciolata that I became addicted to over the holidays because Costco was selling it in 3 jar packs. I put that stuff on everything. Ice Cream, pancakes, english muffins with cream cheese, shortbread, you name it. Worth trying if you can get it but I warn you! It's hard to stop eating it.

I don't make them, I just grill them. They are Morningstar Farms Chipotle Black Bean burgers. I get them at Costco by the ton.

I'm not a vegetarian (I love steak and bacon FAR too much for that to ever happen), but I do go meatless often. And these are the best meatless burgers I've ever found. When this box runs out, I'm going to try this homemade version - http://iowagirleats.com/2012/06/18/chipotle-black-bean-burgers/

ps: My dinner plans were usurped by DS bringing home my absolute favorite pizza on a lark. So the black bean burgers and potato salad have been delayed until tomorrow.

Today's dinner plan. It's going to involve ground bison. I haven't much used this protein but I've eaten it in burger form a few times and it was fairly tasty.

The plan is to season it with um...suggestions? It has a slightly more game taste than beef or turkey so what works well with venison, for example? I'll probably go with the classics of oregano and thyme, garlic, salt and pepper.

Anyway, I'm gonna brown it, then brown some onions in what's left in the pan, then make a roux out of that and then add some beef stock to make a kind of rich gravy. Add the browned meat back in and serve over egg noodles or whatever starch, really. BS likes egg noodles. It works well with vegetables to make it more stewish but just meat and gravy satisfies as well.

So that's the plan! What're y'all having tonight?

I think I'm going to whip together a quick stir-fry. The leftovers will be convenient to have for lunches at work during the week.

Okay I have to confess that I am completely intimidated by grilling. I always feel like the deck is going to burst into flames or the propane is going to explode. It just feels fraught. Probably because I've never studied it.

Anyway, that sounds delicious to my taste buds. Glad you had bountiful blessings of food today.

Ahhh yes, international night. Are those strawberries from the aforementioned U-pick haul?

With today's gas grills you have little to fear!!

Give it a try... you'll love it.

Just make sure you have an instant read meat thermometer to check the doneness of your meats!

Last night's dinner plan did not come together. Was too tired from gardening to spend much time on cooking so I made patty melts with the ground bison. Salt and pepper only. Sauteed onions. Good cheddar. Good sourdough. It worked. Now I have half a pound of ground bison left.

Tonight's dinner. Buffalo Quesadillas. Which is very much not the same thing as a cow pie.

May your table be bountiful.

My dinner plan was a pasta casserole. I went downstairs to put in a load of laundry and while I was down there my 10 month old lab ate the meat. .
I'm very lucky he didn't burn himself. Luckily I had it on very low. I can't believe how bold this dog is.

Anyway.. thankfully I had cooked and shredded some chicken and thrown it in the freezer yesterday. So I pulled that out and made fajitas pretty quickly.
I love my pup but he's a food stealing jerk.

Metamorphosis

At that age that's the kind of thing you almost want them to have a small amount of self inflicted suffering from so they have an incentive not to do it again. When she first came to live with us our cat jumped from a table to the top of the woodstove. Exactly once.

Anyway, I'm glad you had a plan B. It's always good to have a plan B!

ETA: Actually it was not when she first came to live with us. It was when the table first came to live with us, and she had never had a place to make that jump from before. It seems insane to correct that detail here, I'm sure, but it's part of my brain rewiring work to catch not-quite-truths and fix them. Carry on!

I roasted some pumpkin this weekend, and I made homemade tomato sauce, so I made a pumpkin-feta lasagna for a dinner party I hosted, and just finished the leftovers for dinner last night.

I just cooked chicken cacciatore and red pepper soup, shredded fennel for a salad, and zapped a head of cauliflower into teeny pieces to make pretend pasta for the cacciatore sauce--all for a dinner with my bestie tomorrow night. Mmmmmmmm. I love cacciatore.

what works well with venison, for example

I occasionally use juniper berries with venison and wild boar.

Yes and we have another GALLON of them to process!

Definitely NOT!

We did a taco and burrito bar with seasoned ground beef, corn or flour tortillas (shells), homemade salsa, corn & black bean salsa, sour cream, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, guacamole, and Spanish rice.

What is the essence of cacciatore? Besides it being a really fun word to say, I mean.
