Dinner

Night after Christmas, not sure what the traditional meal is, but it's a ragu with meat sauce tonight, linguine, with a tomato based meat sauce, with ground pork and beef .

Had both leftover ground pork and ground beef in the freezer, out it came. Then combinations of various open packages of linguine, some of them might remember the administrations of GWB, in the very back of the cupboard. I rarely venture back there, who knows what might be hibernating here in the Rockies?

Anyway, saute onion, garlic, add the rest of the sauce,  Oh. I add a chopped frozen thai chili from the Montagnard farmers, One. Diameter of a thin pencil, maybe 3 inches long....it'll make it's mark of this.

Drain the pasta, Mix in the pan with the sauce, Cut the baguette from the oven, pour a glass of wine, and find some trash on netflix to watch.

And what did you have tonight?

  1. You've made me hungry. That looks and sounds delicious.
    By request I did a French roast chicken and there is enough left for Lana and me this evening. As I carve and slice before serving, I made stock from the bones so we will probably have an opening of chicken soup.
    I suspect it will be flavorful as I injected the chicken with a combo of orange juice, cointreau, with a wee bit of truffle oil and fresh olive oil. Herbs of the Provence' over the top and into cavity along with a sliced orange.
    But that pasta sounds wonderful. I'm a pasta fan, big time.

  2. We drove from Madison, WI with a stiff tail wind, then 180 miles of blinding rain and dense fog in Ohio, got the cat first, pulled in to our own drive and took left over soup from the freezer. While it heated, and Laura unloaded the car, our neighbor came over with a tray of cookies and a broad grin. His wife didn't leave him, after all! Happy Boxing Day.

    1. Well, I guess one's wife not leaving is either a blessing or the other thing. And you get cookies, as part of a marital makeup. What fun, better you than me.

  3. That looks/sounds great...

    I'm having Szechuan-style shrimp with peppers, carrot, celery, and a little extra oelek to kick up the heat a skosh and a beer. Nice way to clear away the chills and snorfflies from being outside all day.

    1. I usually ended with a turkey enchilada, with hatch chilies. The leftover were discreetly scraped away the next morn.
