Big enough to cook that aforementioned high horse. With room left over, to cook a side dish of noodles.
Very frugal of you.
It was free. I went dumpster diving at Santa Anita.

With WFH roasted pork shoulder is not just for weekends without plans anymore.

Here is my favorite recipe:

That looks delicious, Jay. I imagine I'd have to get a skin-on pork should from a butcher, as I don't recall ever seeing one in a supermarket. How do you "attack" it when it's done? Slice, pull...?

My local shop rite has Pork Shoulder (butt) with skin every time I’m there. Maybe I’m just lucky? I do a combination of slicing and pulling depending on use. But yes, the skin is the best part.

Edited to add: Victor's suggestion of scissors for the skin is a good one.

I made stew also—used a 24 oz Flannery NY strip that I chopped up and sautéed with onion, added tomato, carrots, green pepper, potatoes, various spices. Delicious.

Not a formal recipe but quick and easy .

Chicken Picatta (sort of ).

Dredge chicken cutlets in flour.
In the interim , mix some chicken broth , lemon juice , and cooking (or white ) wine . Amount depends amount of chicken.

Cook on both sides in oil until outside cooked well (not burnt).
Add some liquid (not too much so that the chicken boils in liquid) and continue to cook on both sides (flipping occasionally). Keep adding liquid as necessary into chicken until most is absorbed . Add some liquid on top when serving .

A new family favorite.

Chicken in Chutney Cream Sauce

Pound thin and then dredge some boneless chicken breast in flour. Shake off excess and brown in butter and olive oil. Keep warm in the oven. In the same pan, add about 1 tsp finely minced ginger and cook quickly. Degalze with some Madiera and cook until mostly gone. Add chicken stock, about 3 tbsp. Major Grey chutney, green onions, and chicken stock. Simmer and reduce. Add some heavy cream, and reduce a bit more. Add chicken back to the pan to warm and thicken slightly, but don't overcook chicken.

Serve with rice.

I threw an 18 pound prime brisket on the smoker at 6am just to have something to do today. Will that feed a family of 5?

Chicken Cacciatori;
Made a huge batch two days ago and it was a hit.
Having a 12 quart Le Cruset helps.
You can literally make up your own variation.
Chicken thighs and breasts in my version.
San Mar Tomatoes
Red wine (Le Vielle Ferme for $9 in mine)
Green and Red bell peppers
Black olives, pitted
Calabria peppers-I used the jarred variety
Mushrooms (crimini in my case, lots)
Onion, garlic, fresh rosemary, and fwiw, I threw in a bunch of fresh basil.
I used a whole head of garlic, about a dozen cloves, rough chopped.
Sear the chicken after seasoning with S+P
Cook down the onions, garlic, and pepper til wilted.
Dump in the tomatoes and wine and then add the chicken on top.
Bake at 300 for three hours. Half way through, push the chicken down into the sauce.
Serve over your favorite pasta-something course like penne.

I am having that exact meal (plus ham) next weekend. My mom has a series of youtube videos showing how to make pierogi - I'll look for it and post it. She has been making them for 60+ years every Christmas Eve.

Here they are ....

Thank you. I’ve never been good with dough of any kind, and this is probably about as good as I’ve ever been able to manage. I’m sure there’s just a feel to it that only comes with experience, and I’ve never iterated enough or had anyone great at it to follow (my grandmother was spectacular; unfortunately she passed before I was smart enough to learn).

We ran out of ice cream and chocolate candy, so we had to look around the house for some sort of dessert. Found a bottle of Hershey's Dark Chocolate sauce, a jar of Mrs. Richardson's Caramel Sauce and several bags of microwave popcorn. Dipping popcorn provided exercise and the perfect balance between sweet and salt. Can't decide which dipping sauce is better but we are rationing them until Amazon delivers replacements.

These were most of the key dry ingredients, of 34 total, for my first attempt at making mole negro. I used an amalgam of recipes and had to do a few rounds of adjustments to taste. Nine seemed to call for enough chocolate/cocoa. Really, I don’t think any of the recipes on their own would have worked as well, and there is a significant variation in recipes. It turned our pretty well, but holy bejesus was it a lot of work. Thank god for spare time. I made a huge batch, froze some, and shared some with 4-5 others.

geez, nothing too keto-friendly (other than Jay's pork dish and Sarah's lamb soup - the latter looks like more effort than I want and the former requires me to go shopping - but next trip).

Ok, here's a recipe that is quick and easy and satisfies the craving for Indian food quickly.

1.5 pound (or more) broccoli, cut into largish bite-sized pieces
1 pound peeled shrimp
2 t. cumin seed
2 t. coriander seed
3-5 dried chilis or 1 t cayenne (or more)
1-2 salt
2 T oil (not olive oil)
1-2 lemons

Preheat oven to 400 degrees

grind up seasonings to fine powder; toss broccoli with most of the oil and seasonings. Put on rimmed cookie sheet and roast for 10-12 minutes until nicely browned on one side. Meanwhile, toss peeled shrimp with remaining oil and seasonings. Flip broccoli and add shrimp to pan and return to oven for 2-3 minutes, flip shrimp and roast for another minutes (how long you cook shrimp dependent on how big but don't overcook). Wipe out bowl, zest lemon into bowl, dump in roasted shrimp and broccoli and squeeze lemon over the top.

After you have made this once, you can get it from basic ingredients to dinner table in under 30 minutes. Great at room temp the next day if you have any left over. Feel free to increase portions.

Pasta Puttanesca

Sauté an onion w some salt.
Add a couple cloves of smashed garlic and some red pepper flakes near the end.
Meanwhile, start your pasta water.
Add a can of drained tomatoes and start to cook it down.
Break up the tomatoes well. Add some pitted olives, kalamata or whatever, add some capers, add some chopped up anchovies or a healthy squirt of anchovy paste. Cook until it starts to thicken. Add a bit of chopped flat leaf parsley near the end.
Start your pasta. Linguini or spaghetti are more traditional, but whatever you’d like.
Toss the al dente pasta into to sauce, heat for a few seconds and serve. Add some pasta water if too thick.
Garnish w some parmigiano and more flat parsley.
