We had plans that would keep us busy for most of the day. We needed an ultra convenient meal that wouldn’t keep us busy as we would both be tired. We had some frozen coated fish in the freezer. I can put up with decent frozen pieces of fish in a pinch but I can not do frozen french fries. They are high in fat, low in taste and have a texture that is either mushy or leathery.

I have previously posted the Sourdough Biscuit Recipe from my friend Linda. They were terrific. Such a nice coating around tender moist biscuits. However, I love whole wheat. Continue reading Whole Wheat Sourdough Biscuits, A Canundrum
It is recommended that you only have two to three ounces of beef at a sitting. In one piece, that is about the size of a deck of playing cards. I don’t know about you, but that doesn’t look like much beef to me. Continue reading Slice Your Steak, Fool Your Stomach
The cost of wild salmon is very high these days. So, when the local supermarket had a sale on frozen pink salmon fillets for less than a king’s ransom, I bought some and made smoked salmon. Continue reading Smoked Salmon, Experimenting
Further to the prior post, we grilled pork last night. As long as the Weber Barbecue was fired up, I decided to grill some potato wedges.
I start with two fair sized baking potatoes. I cut each potato into six wedges. I tossed them in 2 tablespoons olive oil and 2 teaspoons steak spice. I used to use Montreal Steak Spice but I found one with no salt that had the same other flavours and I use it now. Just use your favourite steak spice.

It has actually warmed up to above freezing so I decided to grill last night. We had some Country Style Pork Loin Chops. I grilled them and some potato wedges (next post). She Who Must Be Obeyed made a salad and we had a great meal. Continue reading Grilled Pork Loin Chop, Country Style, a Great Dinner Doesn’t Have to Be Complicated
I am starting a two day project to smoke salmon. Of course, I need a good start. I have mentioned before I don’t like fried eggs. So I made something easy but filling, home made back (Canadian) bacon and fried potatoes.
The potato goes in the microwave, is sliced and browns in minutes, about the same time the bacon takes.
MMM! A breakfast of champions (and fat old guys).

I had the best hot beef sandwich made from left over pot roast. I think I enjoyed this even more than the original meal.
One of the best things about cooking for yourself is the easy and delicious meals you get afterward.

Beef is very expensive here right now. However a cross rib roast came on sale for just below the national debt. As this is my favourite cut for a pot roast and it is currently cold here, I had to make a pot roast. Continue reading Mushroom Gravy Pot Roast, Winter Comfort
