Back in Business

My kitchen is open and tonight we eat good; pork, caramelized apples and homemade potato cakes.

As for last night's takeout, Tim's pizza was so-so. And I'd like to say that my sub roll had the texture and taste of a sponge, but that would be an insult to sponges.

  1. Oh, too bad about last night's dinner. But today sounds like it's going to be a killer good day. On my way out soon, but wanted to stop in and say 'hey'. So...'hey'!

    1. Pork is defrosted as I write this, soon to start the apples. Pancakes I'll probably do fresh.

      Hope you had a good day out.

  2. My kitchen is also open, but the food is not very adventurous at the moment.

  3. What can I bring for tonight?

    Now you made me wonder if the pizza I bring home, my wife think it's less than a sponge eating experience. But being polite (her) she just say thank you! LOL

    1. If you want to know what your wife really thinks, why not simply ask her?

      If it's not something she likes, maybe you can find something she does fancy.

    2. I don't want to ask a question that I don't know the answer...

      Also my wife is not difficult, she married me, didn't she

    1. No, my kitchen was closed, Alex. That's why the takeout.

    I enjoy eating out....but only at certain places....
    Take out? NEVER! Always tastes like the box.....
    Enjoy your day...
    Cheers!

    1. The box probably would have tasted better. Sadly, where we live it is a culinary wasteland of ding ding buy-ins, and over-priced menus.

    1. 5:30 ish - And seriously, when I read your post, I thought I was right there with you.

      No lie.

  8. That has to be the downside of being a good cook. you know the difference. I, on the other hand, will eat just about anything and be happy that I didn't cook it.

    1. It does change things. Even ingredients too. I'll use something for awhile and then get a hold a better grade of said ingredient, and it's like, wow. This is how it should really taste.

      How goes you today?

  12. Dinner does sound good, we're getting our upteenth snowfall right now, so it's beef stew for when the shovelers get done with their task. We have a 10 foot bank of snow in front of the house, all the snow from our driveway, it has to go somewhere. It's sitting on top of the well, so that's good, right? Next Wednesday, the 50's - doing the snoppy dance!!!!

    1. Oh man, beef stew. That sounds so good, too. 10 foot bank of snow. Oh you poor girl. I'm sorry about that. 'They' tell me spring is near but I have my doubts.

      50s? Oh my gosh, people will be in shorts. Crazy people, but still, people.

    1. Love the island in your kitchen. Looks like a great workspace. Though how do you reach the really high shelves?

  15. Bummer about your sub. Here's to your home cooking.

  16. I can't imagine any take-out comparing to anything you might cook. Right? You'd have to go some place nice and expensive to get cooking as good as yours I think.

  20. In response to your question on my blog, I love to cook...I think I mentioned this not long ago in one of my posts. My cooking tastes very good but my presentations are not great. Oh, well. LOL! I have made roast pork many a time and it turns out beautifully. I just put it into a baking pan, sprinkle a little salt and pepper on it and make little "pockets" at the top of the roast where I put garlic cloves. I roast it for one hour a 300F, then another hour at 350F. It comes out tender, moist and delicious every time. :)

    1. My bad. I remember you saying that now about the presentations. I'm stinky at that part too.

      I've not make a full roast yet. Sounds delish.

  21. I also think your dinner sounds delicious! I especially love potato pancakes! Now I want a midnight snack!
