matt, Dad was all smiles before, during and after our meal. :thumbup:

He brought out a 47 year old Schnapps his father made. A real treat today :D

Thank you kindly!

Was looking for something to work as comfort food to help offset yet another cold, wet & miserable day here. Thinking along the lines of a free-range buzzard, when much to my surprise I discovered the very last smoked bear ham, still safely secured in heavy shrink wrap! Excellent!

Image

Tossed that Bad Baby in the clay baker and set about to scorch some Sesame Oil & Butter Brussels's to go with:

Image

Maple Candied Yams definitely go well:

Image

And about then the ham had the whole house smelling Most Wonderful!

Image

A quick slice & dice:

Image

Onto the plates:

Image

Then served under candle light with a rather fine Red:

Image

This one never fails to please! Tender, juicy and full of excellent flavors!

Man, I NEED to collect another fat bear this fall! :thumbup:

Cheers,
Nog

I had a succulent frozen burger pattie pan fried because my wife is scared of the egg. Drizzled in a hearty helping of nothing, and served on a light and fluffy bun made fresh by the fine folks at Dempster's probably some time last week. With a side dish of freshly de-bagged machine whittled baby carrot sticks.

But it's 34°C out and I'm covered in dirt, so it was good. That's it, just good.

Cheers! :lol: :lol:

Not supper, but will be the focus of many a dessert come this fall & winter!

I did not think our cherry tree was going to produce much of anything this year. The lack of sun meant that 65 - 70 % of what it was trying to grow either rotted on the vine, or simply dropped off the tree. Couple days back I noticed the local birds showing some interest, so quickly surveyed the situation. The ones that were there were ripe, so I set about the harvest. Hate ladders, but these things are so damn good I try to overlook that aspect...

Ended up with over 3.5 gallons of fine cherries! Excellent! :thumbup:

Graded and washed them, then set about to make my Lady's Absolute Favorite: Black Forest Cherries!

Image

Pitting machine makes short work of that task:

Image

One and half ounces of Cream de Cacao per pint, a hot light / medium syrup and ready to go:

Image

Into the water bath canner for 15 minutes roiling boil:

Image

And set to cool:

Image

My Lady can never wait to try them on, and so as usual they barely cooled and she went at it.

Her findings?? Image

Going to be downright pleasurable chowing down of these over the winter!

Three more batches to go...

Cheers,

Spent yesterday out in the 30 degree heatwave, painting the huge fence that runs around our place. Was sunburned and in a bit of a chitty mood when She Who Rules said: What's for Din-Din. Ignored my initial internal response which would have gone like: "Whatever the hell your making"... LOL Self preservation mode kicked in thankfully!

Did not want much due to heatstroke, and sure as hell id not want to heat up the house by cooking much either. A little rummaging, found a bag of prawns, a vac sealed bag of Dungeness crab, an avo, some shrooms, few cherry tomatoes, onions and salad greens from the yard. Good to go.
Light, refreshing & Yummy!

Wow Nog, those plates look like they came straight out of a Master Chef's K'itchen. I bet they were scrumptious and delicious, and went down well with the red wine.

BTW, I love your signature and take on political correctness.
