Last night at dinner, the Master Taste Tester commented on how long it’s been since I made Pâté. I agreed and decided to make Julia Child’s Pâté de Campagne or Country Pâté from The Way to Cook.
Several years ago, I had this incredible Sausage Bread that my sister made. I’ve been wanting to make it ever since, and was thrilled when she blogged about it on Grits and Pinecones! It took me several additional months to make the Sausage Bread – next time, I’m not going to wait so long.
Because the weather is finally starting to cool off just a little, the Master Taste Tester suggested grilling out for dinner. What a great idea, I thought! I said “what about grilling some pork (that’s what I had in the freezer)?”
Yesterday, I made some ricotta cheese and meat sauce for lasagna. We’re in the height of hurricane season, and I’m busy making frozen meals that will be easy to reheat if the only power that we have is from the generator.
I’ve been a huge fan of Julia Child for a long time. Part of the reason is that I’ve never made one of her recipes that didn’t turn out amazingly good. Rôti de Porc Poêlé avec Sauce Moutarde à la Normande is no exception!
Lately, the weather has been pretty yucky – warmish, humid and rain mixed with fog. This afternoon, however, the weather broke and all of a sudden we had 70° F weather with blue sky and a light breeze.
These tender and flavorful turkey meatballs glazed with a sweet savory sauce will definitely score the winning points at your Super Bowl party!
I bought 4 pieces of pork tenderloin. Before I freeze them, I trim all of the silver skin and fat off, and vacuum seal each one individually. Invariably, I end up with 8 to 10 ounces of pieces that I use in stir fry.
English sausage is different from American sausage in that it generally contains “rusk” or breadcrumbs and water or stock. These two ingredients produce a fine textured sausage that I look forward to when I visit the UK.
Last night for dinner, we had roast beef. It has actually been quite a while since I’ve cooked a roast. Not surprisingly, we had leftovers! I’m not a fan of leftover roast beef at all, so was in a bit of a quandary in terms of what to do with it.
