    Do I qualify as chef-ing? I threw a roast in the crockpot. Bought the buns and cheese at Greers. If that ain’t chef-ing I don’t know what is. 
    Chef-ing or not, that roast beef poboy was fantastic. I will be doing that again. 

    Looks awesome!

    No money shot, they went about 30 min too long.  Big fail on my part.  Went to slice and various chunks just fell of the bones.  Very ugly looking.  Excellent tasting though and not dry at all.  SWMBO was happy and she won't hold back on critisms, constructively.

    @SciAggie those look suspiciously like beans!  Mmmmm

    Nola got a book about those. Pretty soon his entire diet will be chocolate chip cookies and beans. 

    @caliking we host a yearly holiday cookie exchange party so I can confirm there are other types. Have to do it remote this year but I will soon have 16 different types of cookies to shove in my mouth.

    @blind99 They’re black beans of course. After I plated it though I thought they looked like deer scat scattered around the plate... Maybe that’s why I’m a cook and not a chef?

    @blind99 “He did make a sandwich though...”

    Never forget, you first eat with your eyes. Presentation is key, even though it all ends up in the same place with a final rinse via bidet for some of you. 

    What did I chef last night? Pizza from my buddies pie shop we make the dough for. Hard to pass on the discount we get......

    I’m watching “Chef” on Netflix so in a little under 2 hours I’ll be more chef’d than I am now. 
    I think

    I decided to rewatch that last night after your post. Maybe I'm imagining it, but did you hear the Star Wars reference when they were in Austin selling off the truck? At least I think it was. Seeing how involved Jon Favreau is in the Star Wars universe now, I can't think it was a coincidence that of all the order numbers he could have called out, he called out Order 66. That can't be a coincidence.

    And I didn't chef anything last night. I took Duke to his indoor soccer game, while Mrs. G stayed home and made dinner.

    Making Birria Tacos tonight- Apparently this is some Tik Tok Rage that both my daughters have been begging me to make.   Since its still a work day I went ahead and made the sauce last night so I can braise the Chuck Roast today

    Used the IP to boil everything together- easiest thing in my Kitchen to cleaning up.  Will use CI DO for the 4 hr braise today.


    Put all those Solids and 2/3 the liquid in the Ninja- Then take this and run through a strainer to remove solids.


    More later tonight or tomorrow-

    Recipe I am running with

    We extended our stay at the beach another week and haven’t gone back to the grocery, so I’m playing chopped with the pantry. Tonight, leftover mojo pork, with onions peppers garlic tomatoes and butternut squash - stew style. Luckily I saved off the sauce from the mojo which is half cooked down seasoning and half pork fat. So I’ve been using that to season the stew (and as the fat to sauté everything). Debating whether to serve over rice or pasta. Rice would be better, but feel like pasta.

    @nolaegghead - Manicotti looks killer, but if you're having trouble with chaffing, I recommend applying some aloe vera gel instead.

    I don't doubt that there are other types of cookies... but everything is a lesser breed after dark chocolate chip cookies. Exalted even higher by the addition of pecans.

    I'm not allowed to participate in things like cookie exchanges. Because I would eat all 16 varieties. By myself.

    That's one more thing we have in common.  I do it because I don't want to insult any of the chefs.
