today is the 22nd day of october… we are truly blessed w/ the autumn weather, folks!
a few pics from my awesome leslieville life…
grilled AAA striploins, served w/ Ace potato & chive bread
… shit don’t get no better!!
… saved the best for last! flying solo too. lots of work making it all come together; as the per usual run myself ragged routine. but GODDAMN… i’m worth it, so i did! parm regg, chianti riserva, olives, my best homemade bolognese (grain fed white veal + angus beef extra lean sirloin), rosemary focaccia, best italian noodles, etc. etc. – the whole 9 yards, the whole kit and caboodle, the whole shebang! y’all know me too well! oh, and even splashed on mr. burberry for the special day/eats… not only the food smells good folks!
… my apologies, table was cracked, so i nailed ‘er… shitty host, lol!
h n y … see ya in ’17 suckas!
no bowl, no problem!
always had a knack making shite up as i go!
saved, and sliced an oj container makin’ a makeshift bowl. bob’s my uncle!
fridge/freezer clearing out process before the big move is today’s meal!
sausages grilled, then tossed my mario batali grill pan. thang was heavy as fuck!
PLUS… w/today’s returns, made a whole nineteen dollars and four cents… holla!
3 year old balderson/hot banana peppers omelette, grilled sausages, seasoned wedges!
damn straight… i’m def kitchn’ bitchn’!!
the whole nine yards lasagna… was a coin flip, both blogposts work/rock! not one to be shy w/leftovers… #foodforafrigginweek! meat sauce is my most complicated, time involved, meatsaucemakingendeavourever. oxtail and veal are the stars of this show… took hours of low ‘n slow-cooking perfection. puts my awesome lasagna bolognese to shame, it’s THAT good! sheets are Italian (of course), these are the thick-ass ones w/wavy ridges, made from durum wheat semolina (of course, again). five cheeses – don’t ask, and went w/a chianti reserva to seal the deal! mangia tutti!
megamofodeepdishlasagna! now, that’s a blogpost folks!
technically Fileja Calabresi, but spewing that three times fast is a mouthful of marbles gone horribly sideways, plus ain’t alliterative! in any case, is spaghetti epitomized to the nth degree… and then some!
danssauce is a culmination of time+effort… as well as my superduperchefskillset!!
… and for all ya foodies out there… shite def don’t get better than this!!
… that’s right!! started w/searing a beauty piece of oxtail before doin’ ma regular meatball thang (this is shit i make up as i go folks, i swear)… was looking to give that extra depth of flavour. is perfect when ya think ’bout it… my meatballs are veal & pork, the beef completes the meat trifecta – genius! btw, deglazed w/white wine too for more oomph! and, we chefs love oomph! purposely wasn’t shy using a shite-load of homemade sauce filled to the le creuset brim today either! why? how do you spell leftovers? l-e-f-t-o-v… never mind, lol! sides of creminis and hot (i mean, HOT) ontario peppers are the perfect compliment. at this point no skimping… olives too y’all! decided on my famous meatball sang today, provolone, romano def don’t hurt my fave/best (ok, ONE of, lol) italian meals ever! finished w/an obligatory splash of masi of course, and … roberto’s yer zio!!
Is how I’ve been… my brain frantically figuring out food for today! Thought I had it all set in stone last night too… Zin Zen was the plan, and don’t get me started on that one, woulda been the day of all days… the eats of all eats… the best $0.99 I ever spent! YES… 99¢ folks … y’all have no idea (OK, Caymus is a clue for sleuths in ya)!! But, Mother Nature stepped in (bitch… cunt, lol), and ultimately, ultra high humidity nixed it, nipped it in the bud! As a result, today dansplans kept changing, OVER AND OVER… at least dozen times! And, after much bustin’ brain against the wall (ok, pillow, lol), here is were we stand!
Fresh ground, hand formed burger, cremini ‘shrooms, heirloom tomato, swiss emmentaler, special sauce, on a buttered and grilled kaiser bun!
inspired by my PC® brand buns (check out the poppy seeds, extra long too) purchased today… love these bad boys! already had the all beef jumbo franks in the fridge… was a perfect marriage. roughly chopped sweet onion, sliced tomatoes, hot peppers, mustard… and, the secret ingredient (drum roll, please)… cheez whiz!! perfect for a hotter than hell july day, after a long day of work… and, after a 5k run… danistrulythemotherfuckingman!!
organic spring mix, best tomatoes EVER (from Holland), Vidalia onion, pumpkin seeds, and that’s just the salad!
best buns (Toscana), my bomber sauce, creminis (50% off), Jarlsberg, Angus Beef (seasoned w/ s&p, and Barberians)!
all served w/ my beloved Creemore!
… the feck ’bout this shite ain’t yum, lol?!?!
