Turkey club sandwich! Heyday turkey breast from last fall, roasted with homegrown herbs; homegrown, home-cured and -smoked bacon; Butler Green tomatoes (!); homegrown lettuce; homemade mayo from fresh homegrown egg; Udi’s white sandwich bread (we are doing a gluten-free experiment at our house).

Also an artichoke! Which I grew! Served with more of the homemade [...]

G. wouldn’t stop singing Chicken Pot Pie, which I will not embed because I find it sort of horrific.

Anyway, made with homemade pie crust (made of homemade cultured butter, storebought organic Fresh Breeze cream; and storebought organic flour), filled with freezer Leapfrog Farm celery, homegrown carrots, rehydrated previously-dehydrated Laughing Crow onion, [...]

We went to pub trivia and so we got home late and I was sad and cranky. I had some horrible nacho cheese Doritos at trivia. When we got home G. made me a turkey club sandwich, with leftover homegrown turkey obviously, home-cured Island-grown bacon, another Kittitas Greenhouse tomato, some Butler Green Farms salad mix, [...]

Leftover pozole.

What I had for dinner on Sunday, November 27, 2011

Turkey pozole, except a much smaller batch than this recipe called for.

Homegrown turkey and homemade turkey stock. Laughing Crow onion, LC and/or homegrown garlic. Storebought non-organic :( chipotles in adobo sauce. (I’m going to look up making these next year). Storebought non-organic :( hominy in a can. Not sure what to do about making [...]

Friend Anne’s Kentucky Hot Brown. Except we used gravy instead of making cheese sauce, because we were super lazy. This may invalidate the whole thing but I don’t care because it was delicious all the same.

Homegrown turkey. Macrina bread. Kittitas Greenhouse tomato. Home-cured and -smoked bacon. Homemade gravy of turkey drippings and Utah organic [...]

What I had for dinner on Thursday, November 24, 2011

Oh, not much, just some random stuff from the freezer.

Oh wait, just kidding, I forgot.

We started with some of the cooking on Tuesday and Wednesday, but did most of it during the day on Thursday. It was just the two of us for dinner, which was great — it ended up being pretty [...]

We went out to the Owl & Thistle with friend Errant, then came home for dinner which G. had already prepared: tortilla soup, prepped mostly like so.

Homegrown turkey stock and homegrown turkey. Homegrown Czech black pepper (a beautiful jalapeño type that is purple then turns red). Suyematsu Farms delicata squash and home-frozen sweet corn. [...]

What I had on Sunday, October 30, 2011

We finally took our day off! Since we finished turkeys last Sunday, we have been angling to have a day off for one or both of us. Today worked out well for both of us, as well as cashing in several groupons.

First stop: tour through Pike Place Market en route to Le Panier, where we [...]

What I had for dinner on Saturday, October 29, 2011

Homegrown turkey, with Laughing Crow shallots and homegrown sage and thyme inside, roasted at 425º until the thermometer said it was done. More Laughing Crow shallot, this time a French Grey, very thinly sliced, sautéed in the cast iron pan with some homegrown kale and a bit of butter. And Laughing Crow potatoes, boiled, with [...]
