I'm STILL a self confessing, self professing know-it-all, or so I think!

no stew for you!

… and no, I ain’t the stew nazi, lol!

this is what 14 hours low n’ slow in the crockpot looks like! oh, and mine’s an old school ceramic Rival model w/only two settings; low & high. no timer, nuthin’ fancy folks – workhorse still gets the job done!

Grilled Greek

Sometimes pics don’t do the food justice. This is one of those times. Slightly pounded, then marinated chicken breasts … grilled them over hot coals to blacken them. Also grilled the green bean, tomato, and onion salad. And yes, I know I’m feta-heavy, but I REALLY REALLY love my feta, lol. A few pics y’all!!

Salad and chicken (a few olives too) platter

fluffy omelette

… almost souffle like!! Something I’m strivin’ for when whipping up an omelette. The shape, (ain’t bustin’ open – staying intact), colour & texture look perfect … almost as if I used a mold, lol. Threw in leftover steak, onions and mushrooms … that’s Monterey Jack cheese you see oozing out … fill it as you please. Oh, and it’s 4 of the most free run, hormone free brown eggs ya can get – that’s key btw, use the best/freshest eggs … ALWAYS!!

grilled kale

… just a few pics, fresh Ontario grown kale (on sale of course, lol)!! Something completely new (who knew?!) … looks AWESOME, can’t wait to try it … but RIGHT NOW have more Weber wood grilling to do before I can dig in  … we’re real time blogging here folks, lol!! Sweet onions, slivered garlic … copious sea salt/freshly ground pepper then sprinkled with chili flakes … sorry, gotta go y’all … roasted creminis, NY strips, and grilled garlic focaccia awaits …
