What are you cooking?

So, does pork roll (Taylor ham for north Jersey people) on Amoroso’s Kaiser rolls in the evening count as breakfast for dinner? I think most people around here cook pork roll for breakfast but I’m not originally from around here and have never cooked it in the morning, always to make sandwiches later in the day.

As it does with bacon my big Foreman grill cooks pork roll very well with no splattering to deal with.

One-time Central Jersey kid here. We always had pork roll on a kaiser roll or burger bun, for lunch or a late afternoon snack. It was a great treat to share with a sibling at the community pool’s snack bar. If Mom was in a generous mood. (But she never cooked it at home.)

I made chipped beef on toast with potatoes for breakfast this morning. It came out good!

That’s something I haven’t had in years. It’s been so long that I can’t even remember if I liked it or not. :smiley:

Threw together some more of that good navy bean salad today. This time with some lemon dressing we had left over. Should make for a nice lunch. (Over lettuce, and some whole-grain hippie crackers on the side.)

Chicken enchiladas. Not at all authentic but very tasty.

I did it! I made chicken curry with rice for dinner!

It came out well. I used “Kitchens of India” brand curry mix. My local Walmart has Japanese style curry (not as spicy); I may try that next time.

I neglected to get a before picture but I took my first attempt at a rhubarb crisp to a potluck Packers party at my Lions club and it went over quite well.

I’m impressed. I’ve had strawberry rhubarb pie myself.

After an afternoon of using the chainsaw I treated myself, made a pan of Scaramuzza’s spinach and cheese manicotti with their really good meat sauce and some farfalle to fill in the extra space in the pan.

Now I’m way too full…

Couldn’t help but picture you using the chainsaw as a kitchen tool when I read this, and I suspect I’m not alone.

Just got done with a nice dark caramelized curry paste (when I tell you that this house is whiffy right now :sweat_smile:) and now it’s in the crock pot with black lentils, chicken stock, and that chunk of butter. I’ll be back with naan at dinnertime.

Yesterday, I made eggs with thyme from my herb garden and toast with lavendar honey (bought from a lavendar farm).

Earlier this week I suddenly really wanted to make mini bundt cakes. Why? No idea. But I bought a pan and found a recipe and made them. …and I was underwhelmed by the recipe. It’s not bad but it’s kinda bland. I’ll have to find another recipe.

That’s too bad because they look amazing. I want to eat one!

I’m wondering if it needed more salt or something like that. The batter tasted fine, though. So I don’t know. Maybe I’ll like them better tomorrow. :slight_smile:

The secret with chocolate recipes is vanilla. If there wasn’t any vanilla in the recipe add some next time.

There is vanilla. I could add more. :slight_smile:
