I got a text from Cigarson on Tuesday.

He and the new bride [almost 6 weeks no -- and they said "it wouldn't last"!] would like to come by on Thursday, and there will be lasagna.

No, they aren't bringing any lasagna.

I have to multiply the recipe by 1.5 to fill the bigger pan.

And it needs four layers of noodles. Who makes a lasagna with two layers of noodles?

Labor Day Dinner.

Grilled Pork Steaks
I discovered that there are parts of this country that don't know about pork steaks. This could explain why there are states that still vote Democrat.

Roasted Potatoes with Roasted Garlic
This is an easy recipe.
- Buy some whole bulbs of raw garlic. Peel the cloves & cut off the stem ends. You can cut the big cloves in half, if you like.
- Get some of those fancy little potatoes. Or cube some Russets to bite size.
- Toss the garlic cloves and taters with any seasoned salt, some dry herb blend, and olive oil.
- Roast on a cookie sheet for 30 minutes at 375°F or so.

The oily potato gets crispy like a french fry. The garlic cloves lose a lot of their bite... they turn into little dollops of garlic paste with caramel edges.


Just spoon some some taters and garlic next to the grilled pork steak, and eat like a king!

Cold smoked chicken, from yesterday's hurricane Laura fundraiser. Wishing I had a really good beer. And a really good cigar.

I decided to pass on the garlic butter bacon burger and tater tots from Sonic Drive-In, and opted instead for a bowl of multigrain Cheerios with banana, and a slice of apple pie.

Brussel sprouts and gnocchi, using this recipe:
https://cooking.nytimes.com/recipes/102 ... own-butter

Was pretty rich, and I used too much salt, but it went well with gin and tonics.

Dessert is pears with cheddar cheese, but a bit later.

We've got a bundle of asparagus that I was supposed to broil tonight but forgot. I guess we'll cook them tmrw. Lay them on a sheet pan, drizzle some olive oil, a sprinkle of sea salt ...

Nuked up left over grilled lamb steak.

Bear loves bones. Lamb is a rare treat.

No pepper? Pepper flakes? Any sort of pepper what-so-ever?

Black pepper from a grinder is a given.

Ended up throwing some of the sparagus in with scrambled eggs this morning btw, along with grated cheddar and picante, folded into a flour tortilla(s) for breakfast.
