Italian Sausage Stuffed Acorn Squash
Since the weather decided that it needed to heat up, I took the sausage, got a few more things and boom, sausage and pepper sandwiches.
Roasted Tomato sauce with Spaghetti Squash
I can still make a sauce off the cuff. I may have over roasted the spaghetti squash a little, but still made for a pretty delicious meal.
Roasted Tomato Sauce Pizza
Delayed, dough is out of the fridge and rising. Went to the Beaverdale (almost) Fall Festival instead.
Lucky George Imperial Russian Bratwurst
Good things. I kind of wish I had the matching beer to go with these. Perhaps I should plan better in the future.
Beyond the Meat burgers
Decent smell, taste was over whelmed by the cheese that I added to it. Decent texture. Still prefer the behavior of meat, but progress is being made.
Curried Goat with sweet potatoes in flat bread
Should've cooked the goat a little bit slower, even so, it turned pretty well. Little bit of sour cream, good stuffs.
Shannon loves pasta. I love pasta. However pasta has a lot of carbs, so I don't make it very often anymore...but Spaghetti Squash! The fine people at Wabi Sabi Farm had some squash down at the market yesterday So we'll start the spaghetti squash season.

Bratwurst Reuben (Need to use the other rye bread in the freezer)
Yep, good stuffs. My own kraut, some really good Alpha Tolman, and other good things. this is a fantastic sandwich.
BLT (probably the last of the season)
*sigh* The season is mostly done. It was fun while it lasted. We'll see you again in a year BLTs.
Simple and good.
I cracked open the Momofuku Milk Bar book to make chocolate crumbs and chocolate chocolate cookies. And made Sambal Oelek cashews (1 cup cashews, 2 T butter, 2 t Sambal Oelek). As a side note here, I don't know if it's amazon effect or that Whole Foods has a better source, but there is a $4+ / pound difference between Hy-vee ($14 something / pound) and Whole Foods ($10 something). I didn't believe it the first time I saw, but when I went back and checked...yep.
Anyways the cookies turned out really well, I went to a few stores to find glucose, but had no luck there. They turned out pretty well even using Corn Syrup. I've got another batch ready to go for today for a block meet up (in the fridge already).
Fresh Green beans from Grade A Gardens, some pork tender loin and a good recipe. Easy win for an evening.
Citrus Brined Roasted Chicken Thighs Salad (roast one day, use next day)
I made entirely to many thighs, however I did make a nice simple chicken salad. Little Celery, little mayo, mustard, and sriracha.
Om Nom nom.
I remember that some lockers may not know the difference between lamb and mutton, specifically on this package. Good stuffs.
Beef and Rice Bowl
So I have this jar of miso sauce, and I spiced up the beef with Sambal Oelek and the miso. it made for a nice simple topping to rice.
Fresh Slow Roasted Tomato Sauce & Pizza
Let it be known, always choose good mozzarella, because if you don't, it really is detrimental to the pizza. This was my own fault, as I forgot that I needed the cheese. Luckily I was able to get enough parmesan off what was left in the fridge, but even so, I should've taken the trip to get fresh mozzarella, rather then the "fresh" mozzarella at the normal grocery store. It detracted from the experience as a whole. That being said, the tomato sauce was good.
Om nom nom.
Roasted Tomatillos, Peppers taco salad.
Good Stuffs. Funny story. The peppers were a bit hotter then I expected and I should've used gloves. Needless to say, there was quite a bit of extra washing after the fact. Even so, good stuff.
I do like the add of the pickled onions. Plus I got to make a Gibson or two or so.
Slightly modified from the recipe for the purpose of incorporated the leftover roasted tomatillos and roasted peppers. I did quicken things up but using my food processor to quicken up the biscuit topping, however in doing that, the lid has broke again (making it unable to turn the lock so it'll spin, thank you mr knife), so that'll need to be replaced. Anyways it turned out pretty well. Lots of leftovers.
Chicken Tikka Masala (using fresh Tomatoes)
So an small army of children and my sister Emily and her husband, and my lil' brother Isaac showed up at my house. Since it was the day after Isaac's birthday I let him pick the dinner, approved it with Emily, then interpreted it from there. With the fresh tomatoes and some roasted tomatoes.
Finished with some picked that morning watermelon. Thanks to Jordan at Grade A Gardens for letting me come out and get one.
Funny thing, my nieces and nephews spent some time burying watermelon seeds in the dirt that the city had put in to fill in the added curb. So far, no watermelon plants, however, it did rain last night... So who knows.
Grilled Cheese with Slow Roasted Tomatoes and Leeks
Whole wheat bread, Prairie Breeze, fresh tomatoes (I still had some left) and some sautéed leeks. Good stuffs.
Italian Sausage Burgers with Slow Roasted Tomatoes and Leeks
Again, still had fresh tomatoes, and used that and the sautéed leeks. Easy simple meal.
Fresh Slow Roasted Tomato Sauce & Pizza
Delayed until today. Forgot to make the dough in a timely fashion.
Added an egg, good stuffs.
As an added bonus, walking around the Farmer's market, I thought about robiola, tomatoes, english muffin bread and some pancetta. Made for a good dinner.
