More of my chow – coming right up!
Have I mentioned the importance of a good pair of kitchen shears? I use them for everything – quickly dicing veggies (e.g. the nuked frozen broccoli), deboning chicken, chopping herbs, menacing people – the list goes on and on. Go buy a pair!
I hung out all morning with Lil-O…
…and in between games of Candyland (during which he CHEATED repeatedly), I worked on a new recipe for Paleo chawanmushi (savory Japanese egg custard) filled with chicken, shrimp, and shiitake mushrooms.
Of course, I had to sample a cup to make sure I got the seasoning right.
Since I had a ton of leftovers in the fridge, I decided to make just one veggie side dish for dinner.
I grabbed my jar of homemade lard from the fridge…
…and roasted a tray of lard-tossed broccoli in the toaster oven.
I plated the baby trees – Lil-O will only eat them if he’s pretending to be a giant gnashing on puny human vegetation – along with a couple of pan-seared slices of 4505 Meats Turducken Junior and half a duck sausage.
By the way, I know that some of you have been asking for the recipes for some of my recent creations. You may be wondering if I’m
holding back hoarding them…and you’re sorta right. We’re hard at work on a cool little project involving those recipes, and the wait will be worth it…hopefully. In the meantime, you still have a ton of other to choose from on my recipe index, so keep cooking!
