I had a hankering for some pasta, and Bolognese just popped into my head. There is nothing like the aroma of beef, veal, pancetta and aromatic vegetables as they slowly cook down with red wine, tomato paste, and beef stock… It’s like the smell of a fine perfume.
While the sauce was cooking down, I rolled out some thick flat noodles, and let them dry on a rack. Some generous shavings of fresh Parmesan, fresh garlic bread, and a nice chardonnay completed the meal. So yummy.
It’s a beautiful evening with cooling temperatures and just a slight breeze. I see a couple of my neighbor’s peeking over the fence… Glad I made extra. What a beautiful way to end the first day of the workweek.
I hope all my JAP family, and everyone else is having a wonderful Monday evening (((HUGS))).
I made a really unique baby back ribs pork barbecue sauce yesterday.i'm going to use it on my ribs today. It Came out absolutely delicious. I won't be able to post it here for a couple of weeks. It was entered in a contest.it cannot be published etc.
It's gonna be a hot one today! It's already 76 degrees @ 9 a.m! going to a high,a very high high of 94! UGH! I don't like to cook in this weather! I don't like to do ANYTHING in this weather! but I just took a salmon fillet off the grill,I'm going to make Barefoot Contessa's Salmon Nicoise Salad .I wanted to cook the salmon early so I can chill it.Since I had the fire going,I also grilled half a chicken for my hubby & Aunt's dinner tomorrow.
CHICKEN AND DUMPLINGS from scratch. Rey bought a free-range hen, and I'm making some kickass chx & dumplings. Lots of flavor with fresh and dried herbs & aromatics. I will soon be letting the hen cool while I make the roux made from sautéed celery and yellow onions, and flour. I cook it to the blonde stage. Then add it to the hot chx broth the chicken made, bring this mixture to a boil. I like lots of dumplings, so I add about 1/2 the dumplings and let them boil for about 10 minutes, then retrieve them with a slotted spoon. Then I add the remainder of the dumplings, and repeat. I put the already cooked dumplings, I cooked 1st, then put the pulled chicken in the broth. YUMMO!
