Ever look at the price of an oxtail

Once a year, they do go on sale, but you never know when in advance.

Loaded up the grill. Thick loin chops from Costco, hand made sausages from zhers fresh today. The butcher there is a newf.  These sausages are the bomb. Some tater and a bit of green to stay on the healthy side. Well except all the budda. That Is why there is no sour cream. LOL

Tonight's supper was bacon-wrapped halibut chunks, oven-sauteed wild leeks, and fries.  It was fairly toothsome.  But I am not much of a picture-taker when it comes to food.  My wife thinks taking a picture of a meal is downright BIZARRE.  (Yes, we are not exactly millenials...)  😉

 

Hey SINKER!  Better haul your butt down here while I still have a piece of halibut for you!

So ya, another pie. Caramelized onions, sun dried tomatoes and Anchovies.
No tomato sauce, just fine Olive Oil and a wee bit of fresh Mozz I needed to use up atop home made pizza dough.

Bon Appetite.

This works for either regular white or a medium rye bread. If you're making white just use 3 3/4 cup white, for rye split as below.

2 1/4 cups white flour,  1 1/2 cups rye flour (bulk barn).

1/3 cup sugar, pinch of salt

1 pack of Fleishmans fast rising yeast and 6 teaspoons of Fleishmans bread booster.

1 1/2 cups of milk and 4 tablespoons butter (no margi, yuck).

Mix dry ingredients in the mixer bowl,  warm the milk for about 2 minutes in MW with butter til it's melted, stir and add to the dry mix.  I run the mixer with the dough hook for about 4 minutes on #2 speed.  Pre heat oven to about 150F for a couple minutes and turn off.

Take the dough and knead it for about 2 minutes on a floured surface,  and fit into a 9x4 inch bread pan, spray with PAM, (I prefer glass pan).  Put into the oven for about 45-50 mins or until doubled.  Take out of oven, preheat to 350F, insert loaf pan for about 23-25 minutes.  Take it out of loaf pan onto a cooky grill and let it cool.  Store in a paper bag, plastic will make it sweat too  much.  If the smell doesn't make you drool, you have covid. I found the Fleishmans bread booster made a big difference.

Soup was delish as was the bread. The bread was free formed as I don't have a loaf pan, yet.


And I still need to find this  --->  "Fleishmans bread booster made a big difference"

So my wife was away last evening and I thawed a package of elk steaks my buddy had brought from BC.  No sense sharing elk if I don't have to!  I have never butchered an elk, so did not recognize the cut.  For sure the small steaks were cut from a larger piece, and my guess is bottom round.  Anyways, elk really should be eaten no more cooked than medium rare, and it goes from rare to medium in a heartbeat.  Difficult to achieve on the BBQ, even with indirect heat, so I pan-fried them, and even took PICTURES!!!  That orange stuff on the plate is a vegetable.

Yes, my favourite brunch is pan-fried deer tenderloins with eggs done in the pan juices.  These little elk steaks were fabulous with those nice runny eggs!  😁

A twist on breakfast for dinner.

A deep dish Quiche (Western Omelette style) and homemade breakfast sausage loaf.
Everything homemade including the pastry shell (my first ever, much to learn yet) and the bread crumbs in the sausage loaf which was served with some home grown homemade Rhubarb Chutney.
