Friday Florida Fall Food Fest
Some recent cooking here at PFHQ. You can tell that's my plate by the presence of Bubba filled with 52 oz of unsweetened ice tea.
That's only good Yankee concord grape juice in the wine glass. I like my dark fruit phytochemicals sans alcohol ... mostly.
I didn't cook the chow in the top pic, but I did help eat it. Mrs. FC made this dish, she calls it Chicken Pepperonada (I'm not sure I spelled it correctly). It's one of those dishes you have at a restaurant somewhere and then recreate at home from the tastebud and visual notes you took while eating it the first time.
It's chicken, italian sausage, garlic (duh), bell peppers, tomato sauce, and the usual host of italian herbs. It's good with a mild spice heat from the hot italian sausage, but I usually shake a little ground cayenne on mine for a little more whoopee.
That's my turkey above, rubbed with olive oil and then sprinkled with basil, salt, and pepper. He was also basted with wine during the cooking process.
I was mowing the yard (MOWFLEX!!) simultaneously while cooking this turkey last Sunday, so the poor thing didn't get the usual TLC during the roast, but it was delicious.
We love turkey and it's too tasty, cheap, and good for you to eat as a seasonal or holiday food only.
I'm a wing man ... when it comes to turkey. I always claim one and then hope for the other. We need turkeys with more wings. I wish those genetic food modifier scientist types would get busy on the octowinged turkey.
I'll buy it when they do.
In other news ... it seems that, as of today I have been going steady for 22 years.
Have a great weekend, I have a mission tomorrow that might prove to be an interesting post if I am successful. Either way, the post about it will be in the afternoon since I'll have to get going early.
