    Went to Costco today and refilled my nonexistent steak inventory and while I was there picked up some fresh catfish and shrimp. I decided to blacken the catfish and serve it with cold boiled shrimp and some okra stew from my ex lover, Patti Labelle. We’re still on good terms though and she keeps me supplied with her frozen okra stew. Dipped my shrimp in some of my homemade cocktail sauce, heavy on the horseradish.

      JCGrill 😂. Seriously though, people, if you haven’t tried her okra stew...get you some now! It’s excellent. It’s only sold at Walmart in the frozen food aisle. It’s better than anything I’ve tried at home. You won’t be disappointed.

      HEY!! I remember you now, you're the...the.. blankety blank that stole my Patti from me!

    My wife’s birthday was yesterday and we ordered in because of the hectic work day she had. So last night I asked, what can I make for your dinner tomorrow - being the taco loving family we are......she smiles and says skirt steak and chimichurri! Ha! So who am I to deny Taco Tuesday on Saturday for a wonderful birthday dinner!

    I recently made a Crowd Cow purchase - used about 1.25lbs of skirt for these, and my son is picking up on things. He asked where the skirt steak came from because it had different flavor and better texture. This pack was great - and was butchered well, nothing but the meat on this.

      They look yummy!

    Red Beans and Rice kit from back home. The beans were soaked for a few hours before cooking and then simmered a little over two hours with the included seasoning packet and my own pork sausage. I didn't use the little bit of popcorn rice that was in the bag, I have my own rice. They both taste the same, the popcorn stuff just gives a popcorn-like aroma during cooking, hence the name.

    Nicely marbled, it called my name... so I dry brined it for 36 hours and seasoned it with coarse black pepper.

    Midway through the cook, added a bit more wood to the coals:

      Hard to resist a chuckie that looks like that! I check the chuck roasts every time I’m at the grocery store and pick up any that look like that.

      that flank looks incredible!

    Grilled a couple of rib eyes (one bone-in, one boneless) on the Buckaroo over a live oak fire. Also grilled brocolli and served with sauteed oyster and enoki mushrooms.

          Those look great! Not surprised they would be in demand.

        I grew up in a rural winegrape growing region in Northern California. There are a lot of Italian families there and my best friends growing up, and to this day, is one of those families. Many Italian families feature ravioli with their Christmastime meals and the Lucchettis are no exception. When we were kids it was always a fun day when family and friends would gather to make literally hundreds, if not thousands, of homemade ravioli. There is nothing like them!

        Fast forward to last December when one of the now-adult grandchildren purchased her great grandma's house that hosted so many of those memorable ravioli making parties. I casually mentioned that to Kendall one day and that was all it took for her to get the ball rolling with her mom and grandma! She got the whole family together and we spent the day making "Grandma Annie's Homemade Ravioli", drinking bloody Marys and celebrating a lifetime of friendship, memories, and love.

        Unfortunately, I'm not at liberty to share that family recipe for it's not my place to do so, but it did inspire my wife and I to try our hand at lobster ravioli. I gleaned this recipe from the net: Lobster Ravioli | Just A Pinch Recipes and tweaked it to our tastes. I also grabbed this recipe for the peppercorn sauce for the filets: Beef Tenderloin Steak With Peppercorn Cream. We used Annie's basic dough recipe for the ravioli, but that is a pretty standard recipe. This was a very easy cook and I will say it might be one of the best things to come out of our kitchen. It was as rich and decadent as anything you could get in a restaurant. The biggest challenge was timing, especially with the 2 sauces, but it all came together nicely.

        We are taking an RV trip to Coos Bay with some of our Lucchetti clan next month and this will be our meal to share with them as a thank you for sharing their family recipe with us.

          HouseHomey we really like the Coos Bay area. Part tourist town, mostly working town. Lots of great little hole-in-the-wall restaurants and great "coasting".

        Made this the other night: Toad in a Hole served with onion gravy. A British dish of sausages cooked in Yorkshire pudding. I used a bit much pudding batter, the sausages are supposed to be visible. I used my Serrano and Cheddar Venison sausage. I'm Texan born and raised but mom was from New England. I grew up on roast beef with Yorkshire pudding and gravy, I like it almost better than mashed potatoes and gravy.

        Based on this recipe from former royal chef Darren McGrady: https://youtu.be/az6wAd6RIZ8

        I posted this on the super bowl thread, but at the end of the day, we probably will not watch the game. We did have a starter for today with the main course on its way shortly. This is a smoked queso dip.
