That time of year is finally here!
When the chef gets to play with his toys. A cooked mixture is about to be immersed into a potato-leek soup.
A homemade Shrimp Etouffee when I was on a Creole kick a while back. It was pretty good if I don’t say so myself.
A teeny-tiny organic grass-fed sirloin (that was totally worth the price) along with some sauteed string beans and roasted potatoes.
A couple of steaks marinating in soy sauce, dark soy sauce, garlic, scallions, and crushed red pepper.
This really needs no words, does it?
When you have a surplus of potatoes, make your own chips!
When you can never get your homemade pizza to come out round, so you make them rectangle and call them flatbread to spare the hit to your ego.
I don’t like meatballs, but I make a mean meatball parm. #terribleitalian
The golden beauty of fried plantains.
A pan-seared lamb steak with some garlic-lemon potatoes on the side. It was delicious, and so easy to make.
A crock of homemade Crab Imperial. With all the mayo, eggs, and butter, I was expecting it to be as decadent as I have had in restaurants. While it was still very good, I will save such a luxurious item for dining out (though making it myself was indeed much cheaper).
