    Instant read = yes. I normally go on feel, but the recipe called to cook to temp. and I didnt want to dry it out. No brilliance in the recipe - it was shamelessly taken from the costco magazine of all places. It looked good, so I tried it. Used lemon juice since I had a couple meyer lemons from the tree looking a little marginal in the refrig and did not want to hit the store for that small amount of two other kinds of citrus juice.

    The local fish store had some Cobia, which I simply cannot pass up. Very simple preparation of lemon juice, capers and olive which was vaccumed sealed and placed in my sous-vide for 30 mintes at 140F. I then grilled the fish for 1 minute at 500F.

    The fish was served on a bed of forbidden rice and steamed brocolli.

    This was all paired with a very nice white burgundy.

    I cut my own 1 and 1/2 inch pork loin chops and stuffed them with crumbled applewood bacon, blue cheese and sauted yakima pears with garlic. Seared in the cast iron pan for 3 minutes a side and then in the oven at 400 for a half hour.

    Served with steamed broccoli and cauliflower mashers and Avery White Rascal.

    Red Kuri squash is in season, it's an heirloom, and if grown organically and not too long off the vine is super rich and sweet, gorgeous color with no squash starchiness that cause squash haterz to hate squash. Look for something blood orange in color and roughly football or pear shaped. Night and day difference compared to the average starchy acorn squash that's been sitting for a week or more at Safeway.

    Stuffed Kuri squash with a filling of sauteed shitake mushrooms, chopped tart apple (Northern Spy is the classic thin skin variety, don't peel!), fresh cranberries, walnuts, garlic (one of the domestic porcelain varieties, not the chinese sh*t found at the supermarket), fresh ground coriander seed, chopped basil and Jarlsberg cheese, sauteed it all in butter and dry Vermouth. Pre-bake the squash halves then fill and bake until the tops brown, they will glaze over with the natural sugar from the squash and apple.

    Here's the duck from last weekend. Got one nice meal of duck breast, potatoes and veg, a night of duck tacos, and a good pot of stock.


    Wife out of town all week on biz. She isn't the biggest fan of the only gray meat, so I cooked up a 3lb pork loin- 240F for 4+ hours. Should be enough for pork tacos (shredded), reheated loin with kale, and assorted other meals this week.


    Pizza tonight with homemade dough, homemade marinara, and cheapo store bought cheese. Easy and unambitious but probably one of the more satisfying meals I've had in a while. Bell's Oarsman accompanying. Super thin crust. Hits the spot.


    Made a quick boule with the rest of the dough- good for a quick slice before getting on the bike in the morning.


    My dough is all Bob's Red Mill Flour- 2 parts unbleached white and 1 part wheat spelt.

    By a long shot the best chicken pot pie i've ever had. Everything from scratch. chicken legs onion carrot celery potato bechamel with herbs. Really unbelievably good. I'll be doing it again soon for sure.


    Notice the stock going on the upper left corner. I'f you're cooking chicken you should be making stock. Even if it's just 2 cups. Soup tomorrow.



    Crust Detail. Butter Flour Water Salt.

    Cobia is a real treat! They show up in the spring inshore off NC. In the fall the Wahoo's school up in the blue water.

    Pork Belly on the egg at 225F for 3 hours, then crisped up in the oven to finish.
    Parsnips
    Broccolini
    Brussels Sprouts

    The cut was too fatty, but tasty otherwise.

    Had the crew over for a grill fest over the weekend. The guests brought some shrimp and chicken skewers and some steak with marinaded mushrooms. All good. I did up some sliced pork tenderloin that soaked in a bath of thai red curry, lemongrass, soy, sugar, garlic, etc for a few hours. The recipe is in the current Sunset magazine - very easy and really good. I also did the slipper lobster on the grill - went simple, salt and pepper, with a healthy squirt of fresh lemon that had recently fallen off of the tree that is about 10 steps from the grill. The lemon looked ugly, but had great flavor and a ton of juice. First time doing slipper lobster - they took longer to cook than I had expected, but had a really great flavor. Like a big meaty prawn, but sweeter. I will get these again and perfect them.

    Robin, that pork belly looks killer.
