Reasons things might not make the cut to show up on the blog are things such as:
- the recipe is a work in process
- the recipe has nothing new to add in terms of content
- I didn't like the pictures
- I just didn't feel like posting it.
Pasta with ham and peas
|Visibly lacking fat, too lean.|
|Gouda on some, colby jack on some.|
|Great grill marks from GrillGrates.|
I fresh ground a tri tip roast and a chuck roast for burgers. I grilled a dozen burgers on the Big Green Egg in batches. I didn't post it because the meat mixture was too lean for my tastes and the texture suffered as a result. I have several more grinds that I am working on and my favorite will eventually be posted.
Huli Huli Chicken
This was a practice run for our upcoming Blogger Party (click here for details). I was using the America's Test Kitchen version but divided the finishing sauce so I could use it as a baste too. Using several quesadilla baskets like the one shown, it lets me "turn turn" (huli huli) the chicken frequently and easily so I will be able to crank a bunch out in a short period of time at the party. Will be a future post after the party with better pictures.
I got a good deal on two pretty T-bones (closer to Porterhouse steaks) at Food City. Seasoned with salt and pepper, grilled and then topped with a compound butter using Dizzy Pig Cowlick seasoning. This was just a quickie.
While all of this stuff doesn't make it to the blog, I do post almost everything on my Nibble Me This Facebook page . If you want to see behind the scenes, trial and error kind of stuff, follow that page.
