      bought 3Lbs of strawberries, they were on sale for $1.00 per carton, but also bought 6 containers of blue berries, (my daughter's favorite) so i had to use them up today b/c they were starting to get a bit pruney.

      so what to do?

      So a quick update.

      in preparation for Valentines Day I have done a few things, tonight I made a nice dinner.


      Enjoy the update!!



      included
      smoked gouda mashed potatoes
      organic corn
      Rosemary garlic leg of lamb
      with a side of tomato and cucumber salad in a vinaigrette.















      after dinner, i went to grab some bakers chocolate and made some chocolate covered strawberries for the wife (yeah im a sucker but I love her )

      these are made with some crazy toppings. i used maldon flake sea salt and crushed Cape Cod kettle cooked potato chips. Sweet, savory and a bit tangy from the strawberries are the ultimate sensory overload!

      Today for Valentines day I made some waffles, used a new recipe b/c i hate waffles. the only waffles i love are the crispy type ones, stuff like eggos are perfect, so I found one that resembles Roscoe's chicken and waffle recipe. they were AMAZING! super light, fluffly not cake like at all, very airy, absolutely delicious. if anyone wants the recipe let me know and i'll post it up.

      enjoy the pics and happy valentines day!

      So i went to costco and bought an entire Filet Mignon it was about $80.00 but I managed to carve about 9 steaks out of it. saved the trimmings for making a stir fry or something. Last night decided to do bacon wrapped filet Mignon on the BBQ. served with some brussel sprouts, corn and some golden yukon mashed potatoes. damn good!




      Enjoy the pictures!! and as always, thanks for reading!!!























      I also bought 4lbs of strawberries from costco.... people are sick of eating them! so what did i make this morning?

      Strawberry Jam!

      thanks!!! my wife said the "Death by Chocolate" cake was insanely good! its so rich and decadent that she couldn't finish a slice. its like super chocolate x 1000.

      the cake was chocolate sponge (made from scratch) whipped chocolate ganashe in the middle with a layer of thick shaven chocolate for some texture, another layer of sponge then a ganache on top, sprinkled with some cake crumbles and more shaved chocolate.

      must have used about 3 lbs of dark bakers chocolate to make it

      absolutely

      2-3 lbs of home ground chicken thighs
      1 vidalia onion
      1/2 a jar of salsa (leftovers)
      3 tomatoes
      1 can of tomato sauce
      6 cloves of whole garlic
      1 stalk of celery
      1 can of heinz baked beans! (yes i know! trust me its awesome!)
      cumin
      paprika
      salt/pepper
      cayenne pepper


      I know I am missing quite a few ingredients but I will try to remember them then come back to edit this post. it was a last minute thing that I decided to "throw" together.

      lightly cook the onions in a tablespoon of olive oil. add the chicken, and the garlic. cook to about 50%

      add your remaining ingredients in whatever order you want. allow to simmer for about 30-60 minutes. serve.



      I add the habanero sauce on each spoonful (yeah i love it hot hot hot)

      chop up meat and triple grind with spices and mix well.

      par-freeze

      Everyone knows when its summer you BBQ, whether it's steak, chicken, pork or... Salmon or even...


      lobsters!

      dinner tonight was lobster with salmon lightly seasoned and grilled on a cedar plank, lemon, salt olive oil pepper asparagus and zucchini for the veg.

      lobsters as is.

      does anyone have any know-how on cleaning lobsters before cooking them? (removing the intestines)

      some pictures for the masses enjoy!

      I've never eaten or cooked lobster, but won't it get dry if you cook it directly on the grill like that? Just curious, food looks great as usual.

      Tip to cooking lobster is high heat quick cook. Lid down. Takes about 7 minutes high heat. Flip them front to back so they cook evenly. The head takes longer than the tail so I start tail first then head then tail then head. Prevents overlooking. Here are some after shots
