    .....The centerpiece of our Christmas dinner was this delicious prime rib....man oh man, that was a tasty hunk of beef. Incidentals (but well worth mentioning) were shrimp cocktail, baked sweet potatos, mashed potatos, and a mixed baby greens salad.

    Brunch Salad, Fresh from the Garden

    The prime rib we had the other day was so good that I did not even want to throw out the fatty end. This morning, I woke up with an inspiration and it turned out great. I sliced the fatty end into thin strips and rendered the fat out of it, for use in making tacos later tonight. The remains were nice, crisp strips of beef that I dusted with sea salt and fresh cracked black pepper.

    Next, the salad (all fresh from our garden): nasturtiums (our first of the season), baby beet greens, red Russian kale, green and red romaine, Lucinato kale, baby Bloomsdale spinach, baby arugula, buttercrunch and black-seeded Simpson lettuces, radishes, and sugar snap pea pods (also our first of the season). The dressing was a special, locally brewed balsamic vinegar, extra virgin olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Finally, a couple of fresh poached eggs rounded off the presentation.

    That's nothing. The night before last we had salmon on the BBQ. On cedar planks.

    Thanks

    We decided to forego a "big meal" last night, and just grazed all evening, which worked out quite nicely....
    Happy New Year, folks !

    Made this recipe last night. Stew is always great cold-weather food!

    http://cooking.nytimes.com/recipes/1321-craig-claibornes-beef-stew

    The wine made for a nice, richly flavored sauce. Think I'll add 'shrooms or fingerling taters next time, but this is pretty good as is.

    Forgot to snap a photo, but it looked pretty much like this.

    Pan fry them fingerlings in olive oil first ... sweetens them up some for a unique flavor.

    Looking at the stew above made me realize I have all the stuff. So last night at 10 I started this in the crock pot. This morning at 7, I turned it down to warm. Then when my girlfriend gets here around 11, I will make some cornbread and dinner will be served.
    The meat is scrap from the 3 beef tender loins I cut up for Christmas. I used...........
    Beef tender loin
    Butter beans, string beans, corn, English peas, carrots, new potatoes and onions. (dehydrated) for heart burn reasons. I almost forgot, diced tomatoes.
    Seasoned with a couple table spoons, instant coffee, What's this here sauce, hot sauce, salt, pepper, thyme, and a little garlic.

    It's been comfort food week. Starting today, it's not supposed to get above freezing for 3 days. Nights low teens and single digits. So I made this big ole chicken and dumplings. Should last a couple days.
