    Braised Lamb shanks over polenta. Big ass shrimp. Those two are over a quarter pound
    What sauce did you put over the lamb?
    So what it was braised in obviously.  Onion, garlic, some diced tomato, stock, white wine, herbs, etc. Then braised it in the sauce for a few hours. The green stuff is a gremolata of rosemary, lemon zest, parsley and garlic.  Pretty good if i say so myself.

    Verdict on the buttermilk bath for the birds?
    Meh.  Not a big difference between the dry brine and this, imo.  If you have issues with drying out your bird, go for it.  
    They were grinding either way.
    Had to break out the large cast iron since we went side by side this evening.




    Hmm, interesting.  When you said buttermilk, I assume it was going to be fried.

    That cast iron guy is legit.

    Yeah, I saw the buttermilk soak on Salt Fat Acid Heat
    I ate some of the chicken breast today with lunch and it may have been even better, cold.  Taste was great -- but vs. a dry brine that I have been using from time to time (just heavily salted w/light kosher and fridge for 24 hours) I am not sure it was worthwhile. 

    That particular pan is heavy.  Very heavy.  It doesn't fit in all ovens (I brought it with me a few times when cooking for people) but the versatility of the classic iron skillet is raised a few notches when it is this large -- and you can put it on the stove-top across two different heat sources.  My wife cannot use it because she can not transfer to/from oven when fully loaded.  It is a bear but it is a utility knife that I love to own.  Think it was $40?  Was a gift.  The standard skillet was less than $20.

    I am sure some of us have cabinet space filled by pricey cook ware.  You can do an awful lot with 2-3 cast iron cheapos.  (Also, they are next to impossible to damage.)

    Rose's Special
    Only ate half and am stuffed

    Sandwiches are a fucking religion around here

    This beauty had prosciutto, capicola, regular provolone, sharp provolone, soppressata, and roasted red peppers



    The 4 yr old got a bacon egg and cheese and could only finish half, as well.

    I know many are fans of this show.
    Quite possibly the, ummm, least intelligent person that Sean has had on the show.  Good thing for her that she looks good and can sing.  She missed on a whole bunch of words and -- best part -- she went on a show eating fucking hot wings when having a black pepper allergy.

    I've been watching Jamie Olivers cooking with the nonnas show. Want his Italian cookbook now.
    Need to try making my own pasta.

    Ha I made pancakes for the niece this morning. Those look much better.

    Also, I have stated my preference for flour tortillas, but these south Philly barbacoa guys are on another level

    Add ripped pieces of basil and balsamic to that and you have a masterpiece.

    In my book Classic American comfort food has to include Mac and cheese or pastina if you have Italian roots.

    I have had Mac and cheese 3 separate times in the last 8 days. I feel like poop

    Went out to dinner tonight after doing the stupid Mall Santa thing with the kids

    The Sea Bass was good but the 4 year old's side of Mac N Cheese was the best thing on the table.

    Suckered into 2 apps and 3 desserts.  Frigging wife is as bad as the kids!

    I'm not the biggest Mac and cheese can, not that I don't like it, but it's not high on my list.
    I had a macaroni pie in Barbados on our honeymoon that basically ruined macky chee for me by being so delicious that nothing compared favorabfav.
