I am having a great Veteran’s Day!

It was so nice to have the time to smoke some brisket on the grill, then prepare it in my own creation of maple, bacon, brisket pasta!

Gallons of chili

This is the first time I made gallons of chili!  But it was fun.  And it was for a great cause.  I made 2 gallons of my buffalo chicken chili for the Washington Multi Family Housing Authority chili cook off, to benefit Dawnrising.org and all victims of domestic violence.  I did this as a representative of my company, Avenue5 Residential.  Our theme for our booth was Andy’s Room from Toy Story and I was dressed up as Woody.

Everyone loved my chili, came to our booth asking for it by name, and stood in line to wait for a sample of it.  For presentation I served it with a stalk of celery and a sprinkle of cheese.  My chili was so popular, I ran out of chili just after judging was completed.  I made the semi finals but didn’t win a prize for my chili…this year.  We’ll get them next year!

Portland Eats

On a recent trip to Portland, I discovered they have amazing food culture there.  I was able to sample various establishments, food trucks and restaurants.  The one that impressed me the most was Laurelhurst Meat Market.  They had amazing salads, pate and steaks.  I highly recommend it!

Amazing grilled cheese and soup!

Yes, that’s goldfish in this wonderful tomato basil soup with creme fresh.  The salad has a lovely balsamic dressing on it.  And the sandwich is actually macaroni and cheese on a grilled cheese.  This is amazing comfort food on a gloomy, misty day in the northwest.  It was fantastic!

Be grateful for your senses!

Be grateful for your senses and all of the wonderful experiences you enjoy because of them.  Think of all the wonderful tastes and textures you experience with your mouth.  Enjoy all of the wonders you see with your eyes and music yout hear.

Smell the wonders of nature and luxuriate in your touch.  Never forget it is a wonder and privilege to be human.

My latest offering with sauce from scratch

I made a penne with a Marsala sauce I made from scratch with white wine and mushrooms.  I topped it with diced peppered salami and provolone cheese, spread upon a sprinkle of Cayenne pepper.

Summer is a great time for fresh fare

Summer is a great time, with the hot weather, to enjoy fresh, cold dishes, seafood, salads and other fare al fresco.  I made this seafood salad with grilled salmon, balsamic, large prawns, capers, shaved red onion and mushrooms over crispy greens.

It is quick and easy to make and if you don’t like shellfish or can’t eat it, substitute fresh pulled pork or grilled chicken and enjoy the cool tastes of summer!
