Thursday, June 24, 2010 Another "Off" Week
The Twisted Comfort menu is cursed. No doubt about it. Two weeks in a row I was gonna make it and two weeks in a row no one could make it to dinner. So forget it. It's going on the shelf where it can collect dust.
However. That doesn't mean I didn't cook anything this week. I still had all those strawberries, and then more produce from the Farmers Market. And let's not forget MY HUSBANDS BIRTHDAY!!!
I made Pulled Pork in the crockpot. Even made the BBQ sauce from scratch -- semi-scratch. I used ketchup...didn't make my own. But I mixed up the cider vinegar, mustard, molasses, brown sugar, spices. It was really good. Not like any sauce I've had before.
The pork fell apart after 7 hours in the crockpot. Very tender, tasty. My husband ate an entire bowl of it.
On the side we had Fried Pickle Chips. We had them at Hooters a little while ago and they were awesome. We may have cut ours a little thick - there's room for improvement. But it's still a new experience for my mouth, with the fried and the pickle tastes and the crunch. I'll have fun perfecting this one.
The best part of the meal for me was the biscuts I made. Drop biscuts with melted butter poured on top after baking...unfuckingbelieveable. I had three of them.
Dessert was...well, look at the picture. DELICIOUS. My husband said it was his favorite of my desserts. "Even better than the Sour Cream Ice Cream with Potato Pancakes and Hot Apple Topping?" I asked.
So that's that!
So if anyone does show up tonight, we have TONS of leftovers. And we'll be more than happy to eat them again.
Bang on, my peeps!
