...and the oysters are gone...
nothing quite like oysters on the half shell, roasted over an oak fire...that smokey flavor and served with a spicy cocktail sauce...

so now we have to go setup the oyster blinds, rattle the traps and run the little bastards down yet again.

Try replacing the turkey with eggplant, or pulled pork.
OHHHH! Think about using cabbage leaf for every other layer of pasta. My sister does that, and it works very nicely.

Last nights cold and blustery weather warranted something hearty. In the pantry I found a package of Adobe Milling Moki bean soup mix and a frozen spiral cut ham bone from Easter in the freezer.
Into the pressure cooker with it all. After 60 minutes I gave it a look, needed a bit more water and time. After 90 it was ready.
Outfreakingstanding!!!!! Not only did the bone render out it's gelatinous goodness to give it a Chile consistency but the sweetness of the glaze paired with the earthy, spicy goodness of the spice packet resulted in something special. Served with a warm crusty baguette it was very satisfying.

It was 24f when I woke up this morning. Supposed to be the same tomorrow (Then spring back up into the mid 70s daytime by Wednesday) So a Pasta e Fagiole warms the body and the soul..... And after that, a chicken thigh casserole with chopped onion,tomato,ginger, garlic, and apple served with broad egg noodles with too much butter and a chicken stock/ heavy cream / mushroom sauce.
