A Few Cooks

Work has been crazy busy ever since we've moved into this new lab. It's like they actually want me to work and stuff. Haven't been able to get on here as much as I like too, but been lurking when I get a free moment or two. Not often long enough to make a comment and definitely not long enough to do any posts of our cooks. THought I'd drop a few pictures in here realy quick before anybody else comes in this morning.

Saturday night we had some friends over, watched some football and cooked some fajitas and jalapeno cheese sausage. Nothing fancy, just HEB brand fajitas. Only managed to grab two pics. Really like the new serving platter Mrs. G surprised me with.

Sunday, Mrs. G kicked me out of the kitchen. She wanted to try and recreate the Cream of Jalapeno soup from the Blue Quail Deli in Goliad near our ranch. Don't know what it is, but the women in the family love that stuff. They buy extra to take home with them every time they go. Had some ham and cheese Paninis to go with it. Sorry, nothing was Egged. maybe next time Ill try roasting the peppers on the mini first.

Next up was sort of an experiment. We didn't want to go to the store and just wanted to use what was on hand. Thought we'd try your basic tuna noodle casserole but with grilled chicken since Mrs. G can't stand the smell of canned tuna fish. We employed the mini for this one. Wasn't everly impressed. The Campbell's soup recipe for tuna noodle casserole is pretty bland and boring. Definitely, needs some work, but we liked the tast of grilled chicken in it.

And then we did another soup. What can I say? We've been on a soup kick lately. This one was an Italian Sausage Tortellini Soup using the very last batch of our home made hot Italian sausage. Came out really, really good, but now I need to make more sausage.

That's about all we've been up to lately. Still sorta kicking around the idea of going to the Plano Eggfest tomorrow. Who all is going? If not, I'll be making and smoking up 12 lbs of venison jalapeno cheese sausage tomorrow. The wife says I gotta clear some of this venison out of the freezer.

  • I have been craving that cream of jalapeno soup ever since I saw it on your blog.  It looks fantastic and yeah, I was thinking the chiles should be fire roasted first :)

    @NibblemMeThis thanks. I'll see if I can talk Mrs. G into it next time. Once she "has" a recipe and its "hers", its hard to get her to let me tinker with it.

    Thanks @ChuckChampion. I left the recipe at home, but I'll try and get it posted. I think it might be the first time I've ever used kale in a recipe. No...I know it is.

    I get real scared when the Mrs kicks me out of the kitchen. Love her to death but the poor girl can over cook a pot of water.

    She does make a good Top Ramen though.

    LOL @TUTTLE871 . I'm lucky in that my lady is a pretty darn good cook. We just cook different things which is good because sometimes I get sick of my food. You got plans Saturday? You going to the Plano gathering? The Mrs is going out of town so I got a hall pass.

    @twelvebeer water treatment plant. That is why @Village_Idiot secretly moved out of Houston. He was worried about what I was letting into the river above stream from him. :))

    And the water tastes soooo much better.  It doesn't taste like recycled Italian Sausage Tortellini Soup anymore.

    Good stuff, Grif. Is that the same platter you saw en route to the ranch recently? Sounds like Mrs. G picked up on your not-so-subtle hint? :)

    That jalapeno cream soup looks terrific. Would likely be great with Hatch chiles too. Please please post the recipe once the kinks have been worked out (doesn't look like there were any).

    It was one of the platters. She did good. Would probably be good with hatch as well. I think she's settled on the recipe but next time she's down there she's going to try and pump them for the recipe. I'm not sure we nailed the cheeses right. Doubt they are using gruyere down in lil ole Goliad. Probably too hard and expensive to come by. The recipe she's happy with is on our blog. Didn't post it here since its not bbq related really.

    @Griffin Grif, I've got some roasted hatch peppers in the freezer, how do you think they would be instead of jalapeno's in the soup?

    @billray depends on how hit the Hatch chilies are and what your heat tolerance is. Mild wouldn't be hot enough but I've had some hot that are way hot. Try a few and adjust I guess.
