Sometimes a big fat spicy meatball just hits the spot. Classic bolognese sauce with anchovy & lotsa fresh garlic simmered for a couple hours ... then I added the meatballs spiced up with red pepper flakes & green onions/herbs, eggs, breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese & simmered some more. Sided up with a big green salad & garlic toast ~ Mama Mia, dat's Italian!
Mais, gonna treat mahself to a steak t'night ~ got a nice big ol' flatiron marinatin' for to throw on the coals this evening ... just prepped these vegs fer hot roastin' to side up dat steak. What ... I LIKE veggies, so sue me! Thinkin' I might make some garlic toast wit dat fresh baked bread, too. God Bless America!
Mais, I went all foo foo and lattice like on the biscuit topping for this chicken pot pie ~ even put some parmesan cheese in the biscuit dough (Lord, I apologize for that ... and be wit them starving pygmies down there in New Guinea)
Here's what underneath dat foo foo biscuit topping ~ nice thick savory homemade chicken stew wit lotsa fresh veggies & chunks of slow-stewed chicken.
Well, I had the oven cranked up so I hauled off and baked a few soft, chewy peanut butter/oatmeal cookies too.
I've been very blessed over the years to have many good friends, and most of them are talented musicians. I have no idea why these talented people let me hang around with them, because I cain't carry a tune in a bucket ~ but in any case, this is the weekend of the great Walnut Valley Festival (know simply as Winfield to us) and it got me to thinking about some of the good times I've had with these folks above. Laissez le bons temps roulez!!
Mais, I got lost at the groceria this morning ~ hadn't had mah cawfee yet & was looking fer something quick for breakfast ... found mahself in the canned meat isle & spied a can of bacon SPAM ... dat's right, bacon-studded SPAM. Now, how's a bubba like me gonna pass that up, huhhh?? Came home and fried it up and slapped it on a scratch buttermilk cathead wit a splash of Tabasco and a drizzle of homemade blackberry jam. It was so gawdawful I ate 3 of them. Now ... it's time to crack a beer and settle in for an afternoon of NFL action.
Bonjou All Y'all Welcome To My Lil' Cabin On Da Bayou
