As noted in the prior post, we were looking for a quick, easy meal. One of our favourites is a grilled pork chop. I had been wanting to try the Louisiana Grills Tennessee Apple Butter seasonings I had. Continue reading Louisiana Grills Tennessee Apple Butter Pork Chops
OK, I am old. As the name of the blog confirms, I am also fat. One of the contributing factors is that I love bread. I decided if I am going to eat bread, it might as well be healthy with fiber and all that stuff. The problem is that most high fiber breads remind me of a Brillo pad. To get around this, I don’t use 100% whole wheat flour and I have added oatmeal bran which has fiber without the coarse texture of wheat bran. Continue reading Oatmeal Bran Bread
I love the “Chinese Food” of my youth. I suspect most Chinese mothers would cluck disapprovingly over the suggestion that the food I ate in “Chinese” restaurants when I grew up resembled anything they would serve their families. That being said, I still love it. So, when She Who Must Be Obeyed told me I had a couple of small chicken breasts that she wanted stir fried, I made Chicken Fried Rice like I used to get.

It was my birthday recently. At my age, you don’t want to admit you have a birthday let alone celebrate it. However, if it is an excuse to make something great and to get She Who Must Be Obeyed to exercise her culinary chops, you bite the bullet and admit it is your birthday.

I bought 2 kinds of cheddar, some Monterey Jack and some jalapeno jack.
When I made Bacon in an earlier post, I needed to cold smoke it. I took the opportunity to cold smoke some cheese at the same time. I have smoked cheese before but I always tended toward lighter smoke flavours, oak, cherry or apple for example. I decided I wanted to try hickory this time for a stronger smoke flavour. Continue reading Hickory Smoked Cheese
Steak! With the cost of beef it is becoming a rarer and rarer item on our table. Add to that the fact it isn’t She Who Must Be Obeyed’s favourite meat and I find it a real treat when we pick up a piece of steak. So, I fired up the Louisiana Grills Pellet Smoker and tried one of the seasonings I got from them, Smokey Sweet Spicy Hot Seasonings. Continue reading Smokey Spicy Sweet Hot Steak
We were cooking a steak. One of the problems with cooking a steak is that it should rest between cooking and eating it. What do you do while the steak is resting? I have tried cuddling with She Who Must Be Obeyed. It took a while to heal. This night, I decided to make some great garlic toast. It is the first time I tried it on my Louisiana Grills Pellet Smoker. Continue reading Grilled Garlic Toast
