@ehBeth,
We’re home and I was finally able to cook in our own kitchen again.

Tonight I made Chicken Alfredo With Crispy Bacon. First I fried up the bacon until it was nice and crispy, then chopped it up.

I diced up the chicken and fried it in a little olive oil with some minced garlic, just long enough so it was tender, then finished cooking it in the sauce.

I followed this recipe for the
Alfredo Sauce
.

All three of the kids cleaned their plates, in fact little Alex Martin lifted up his shirt showed us his stomach and said “My belly is full” Cool

For dessert I picked up a carrot cake.

@jcboy,
Friday night we went out for dinner. We all ordered something different, Fish & Chips, Flat Iron Steak and Empire Chicken Curry. British restaurant.

I think I’ll go to the market today and buy some fresh salmon and make the Asian grilled salmon recipe again.

@jcboy,
Oh my, while out at the market today I noticed they had ice cream sandwiches so somehow a box ended up in our freezer. Sounds like we're having ice cream sandwiches to go along with the left over chocolate cake I baked, which by the way came out fabulous. Cool

@jcboy,
Very Happy

I made my version (like no other, she says) of Chile con Carne, really a stew with some already slow roasted pork, slow pinto and black beans, a couple of small san marzano tomatoes, two peppers (homemade ancho chile pepper and some crushed piquine peppers), plus, prev sauteed spicy collard greens and some prev caramelized spanish onions. Oh, and some leftover pork juice from the roasting. I'll probably doctor it before I dish it out . It's been resting in the fridge. I may divide it and add some turmeric or curry powder to part of it. Or not. It'll need some garlic and black pepper.

Some toasted Terni sourdough bread as a chaser.


The bread, in case you want to indulge -

Uh, my starter (biga) is just plain ap flour, not rye.
Yet, anyway.

@ossobuco,
a garden medley of fresh veggies in a shrimp creole.

fresh celery, onion, meaty tomatoes, fired slics of yelw zookinis, garlic and fresh fired sandia peppers for a bit of heat. It was made yesyerday so It was out tanding

Corn on the cob is just fantstic this year and the butter and sugar hybrids are the best when roasted. (They dont get chalky like the yellow corns do. They retain tht sweet juiciness and take on a slight blackened flvor

@ossobuco,
I made the Asian sauce to cook the fish in. Now the salmon is cooking. Having it with rice and fresh steamed broccoli. Alicia said she didn’t like broccoli but that was before I cooked it.

They're eating it up now, patiently waiting for that ice cream sandwich with chocolate cake Cool

They know better than to ask for dessert until the plate is clean!

@farmerman,
I hope by next planting season I will have recovered enough to plant a few veggies. I also need to get fertilizer for my flowering plants. I wan to string a few bird feeders in my largest trees, Im just worried that the black snacks will get them.

Isn't he just! Razz I remember some earlier visits here - when he couldn't cook a thing. Great improvement of skills!
