Made some fried chicken thighs with the cream gravy from this recipe:

It was pretty delicious. I made a lot of gravy so I’ll use the leftover on biscuits from Popeye’s. :laughing:


#1086

that gravy looks amazing.

The Bayless pork tinga recipe that @catholiver posted a while back is pretty dang solid. Very homey.

Bunk picture alert:

I was just thinking about that ‘dish.’


#1090

“Lean pork shoulder”?


#1091

Interesting; never noticed that. How is a pork shoulder “lean”? But this is a solid recipe.


#1092

You could dissect a chunk of shoulder to separate the fat from meat, but it still wouldn’t be lean.


#1093

Yeah, I didn’t know what that meant either, so I just got a regular pork shoulder.

Last night’s dinner was one day late for my (71st!!!) birthday celebration. Foie gras, prime tenderloin, grilled peach, avocado, toasted brioche, and sauteed mushrooms.

With the leftover foie ‘jus’ I fried eggs. So very very good.


#1095

Very nice!

That’s my girl.


#1096

Happy Birthday!


#1097

I celebrate for weeks but this was the main event :slight_smile:


#1098

my b-day was on Sat (9th)—my folks were in town for my nephew’s h.s. graduation so we got together @ my sister’s on Sat. to hang and chill by their pool. I was CRAVING a cheeseburger and corn on the cob—so that what she made in addition to shrimp skewers, veggie skewers, salmon, pilaf, salad and lots of vino. it was a nice afternoon and the family was mostly on good behavior :laughing:

happy b-day!


#1099

I do that as well—my celebration usually lasts a couple of months by the time I get together with all my friends n family.


#1100

Wow, what a feast! Lucky you and happy b’day too! Ditto re the 9th.


#1101

When needed, it can also be a “birthday year.” Last year - the big SEVEN-OH-NO - for sure.


#1102

yeah—my 50th was like that. :+1:


#1103

They only get better!!!


#1104

meanwhile I made a nice salad for dinner


farmers market red kale, romaine lettuce, white yams, avocado, trader joe’s quinoa w/a dressing of cider vinegar, oil, honey, salt & pepper. bourdain would have hated it.
