    Yep, pre made pizza crust by Wewalka is our go to now. It's great stuff and convenient as heck. Has been harder to find during pandemic - maybe as it is made in Austria?!? - but been easier of late.

    Don't think I posted this a few days ago. Finally came up with a working solution to wife liking her pork chops cooked to dryness. Kroger has started stocking thin cut AND thick cut pork chops. So, we get one of each. She can eat her nuked chops, and I can enjoy a moist chop.

    Our first foray. Shake N Bake, of course. I added a little ground up chicharrones to the Shake N Bake, because this is Texas and that's how we roll. Tasted great. Kicking myself for not whipping up some Mac n cheese.

    $8/lb?!? Holy schnikes! That's robbery! How was the taste/quality?

    Looks perfectly cooked.

    I’m no ahi expert, but it didn’t smell fishy at all and was tasty and the texture was as normal. I only bought it because it was so cheap, but I’d never noticed the price before...not sure if that is the normal price or not at my Costco.

    Yeah, we have 13 chickens so it's a damn good thing I got it figured out. Whenever I don't work nights I eat scrambled eggs every morning- kinda cool to be cracking open eggs so fresh they're warm...

    I recommend making cutlets as you'll have leftover egg whites. Pork is fine they needn't be veal. I also have one of those Italian electric cheese graters - NO pre grated cheese please...also, I am Italian so I eyeball everything.

    1. 8 egg yokes in a deepish bowl with about 1 cup of cheese- needs to be at least 3/4+ pecorino (romano) and the rest parmigiano (I like the sharpness so it's all pecorino for us). Combine and make a thick paste with freshly ground pepper.
    2. Render and crisp 4-5 oz of guanciale (or pancetta if you can't find it) in cubes or lardons.
    3. Cook pasta. Needs to be dried pasta- fresh doesn't work too well.
    4. With 4-5 min to go whisk in a cup-two of pasta water to the paste to make a sauce (temper the eggs- u don't want them scrambled). Add more pepper. You want this more thin than thick or your cheese will seize.
    5. Pasta goes in your mixing bowl with the pancetta & combine with the sauce. Keep swirling it to cook the eggs with the heat of the pasta.

    And thanks! But my son is home- and he doesn't like fish so we eat a lot less healthy than I'd like, and my wife insists on a starch especially for him, but I try.

    COVID put grad school on hold for one year, but.....he did do a dual major in 4 years so I view it as a push. Now he has two programs to get his music masters- UT and U of Denver- the latter a near complete full ride. Feast or famine.

    thank you so much for the detailed recipe. We get fresh eggs from nearby farms, so I’ll make sure we have those when we make your recipe. Gotta track down the pork and cheese here. Will report back when we try it. Thanks again!

    I plan to try Five Guys for a bacon cheeseburger and poutine. Every time I've driven by the place, a line out the door.

    wow!

    (those crostini only meriting an "it was ok" makes me wonder if roasted brussels sprouts would be better in place of the broccoli? IIRC a place in Scottsdale that has amazing crostini does one very similar and they use brussels and iirc a bit of honey.)

    Very ambitious meal ya'll made!

    My wife would cry years of wow over the doneness of that beef. Mine would be tears of joy! I'm still amazed at how you can get the outside such great color while the inside is perfect.

    Chili. Long way to go. Big batch. 6 lb of chuck roast cubed up.

    Tonight is lamb on the grill. Marinated in rosemary, lime (didn't have a lemon), S&P, garlic powder, tarragon.
