We had leftover Turkey Breast from a lunch we hosted yesterday so I was going to make grilled Turkey and Jack sandwiches with avocado. Went up the market and all the avocados were due to ripen in about a week.

So... I made Turkey Lasagne. [swoon.gif]


I had made sauce a few weeks back from my garden veggies. I added layers of mushrooms and fresh basil along with the thick Turkey slices and cheeses and...

While not "last night" per se, but I spent most of the day yesterday canning. It's so smoky out that being outside really wasn't a great idea, so I decided to make a mess in the kitchen.

Elberta peach jam:



Canned a bunch of tomatoes, too. These are San Marzano variety I grew, but I had to buy a couple of boxes of Romas too.

Well done!
Thanks, Bruce. Picked the (likely) last six pounds of the San Marzanos yesterday and made a batch of basic marinara and canned it.

Just made a pot of Yak and Elk chili for lunch. I'm trying to cook for my FIL who has gall bladder issues and was told to cut the fat.

Grill take over down in Portland at a buddy’s house. Friend brought over some Columbia River king, so I whipped up a soy-miso glaze and cooked it at a fairly low (300-325) temp to keep the albumins from popping.

Great article here on it -> https://www.bonappetit.com/story/white-stuff-on-salmon

"Albumin is a protein that exists in the fish in liquid form when it's raw, but coagulates and becomes semi-solid when you subject the salmon to heat, whether that's in the oven, on the stove, or on the grill. As the meat cooks, the coagulated albumin gets squeezed out and appears in the form of the weird, slimy, white substance that you are probably familiar with (and weirded out by)."

If you're not paying attention (and some times, even when you are), it's easy to let the temp get away from you on the grill... resulting in globs of white stuff on your salmon. Doesn't taste bad, per se, but has a weird texture and looks goopy.

Thanks, Andrew. I frequently see that stuff when cooking salmon, but it's never bothered me. I always assumed it was fat. Good to know!

Maybe it's a matter of degree, but I still often see this when sous viding salmon <120°F (some EVOO helps prevent it from sticking).

I asked my Wife what she wanted for her Birthday dinner and she said ‘Those Short Ribs’.

Port Braised Short Ribs with Swiss Chard and Garlic Mashed Potatoes.

Looks great. I’d imagine/say that particular vintage of PL was definitely the PL for that steak.👌

That 2003 PL was from a 375 and was surprisingly youthful. It was drinking well but didn’t have the Pauillac character I was expecting.

Likely by reason of the vintage. That said, I’d think it’s that vintage that would help the wine better stand up to that juicy looking steak.
