    Doing another soup. Found this recipe by googling 'Great shit to eat from other countries that Americans never make' (and I'm only kind of kidding there)....

    Albondigas - a Mexican meatball soup. Doing meatballs with thirds of chorizo sausage, ground pork, and ground beef with garlic, carrots, jalapeno, fresh mint/cilantro/parsley, egg, cumin, salt, pepper, and cooked rice. Will partially cook my meatballs then add to chicken stock with some canned diced tomatoes, celery, zuchini, potatoes, black beans, onion, and some more spices.

    Good Lord that sounds amazing.

    I'm making Chicken Stew this week sometime. Scallops tonight - Wegman's had Fresh Caught for $9.99/lb this week.

    Time to kickstart this thread again - with the holidays coming, itching to know what kinds of meals you guys are preparing for your loved ones? I'll be posting some of my plans up as I finalize them. I ordered some lamb spareribs from a gourmet meat company online, along with some black truffles (which I have zero experience with), and some wild boar sausage. Thinking I might do some mac and cheese with the black truffles, and some wild boar sausage stuffing? More to come...

    Just got done with a brutal stretch of work, which I wrapped up by getting a horrific man cold. Going the comfort food route tonight with some soup beans (pintos with garlic, ham hocks, bay leaves, red pepper flakes, and some chicken stock). I feel better already

    Sorry, been busy for the Holidays. There are three main bases I make for mac and cheese: evaporated milk, a roux, and a fondue base. The fondue base is essentially a roux made with wine in addition to milk/half and half. A decent chardonnay makes the sauce pop. Also, don't be afraid to experiment with different kinds of cheese - blue cheese with a good cheddar is a killer combo, if both are pretty good quality.

    Had our Christmas Eve dinner tonight with the whole family - all four kids and our oldest's boyfriend (and a couple of friends). I made Prime Rib (because, why not?) with twice baked baby new potatoes with blue cheese, mashed sweet potates, brussells sprouts with bacon and walnuts and some cheddar biscuits. Had a fantastic Cab Franc from a local vineyard with it all. Then for dessert (a couple of hours later) we had a layered gingerbread cake with bourbon-barrell aged gingerbread stout.

    Can't move now, but totally worth it. This is my big meal of the year, every year, and I ****ing nailed it.

    Couple days off before a big work grind. Snow on the way. Decided to make one of my favorites, Carne Asade. Couldn't find skirt steak which is really ideal - went with London Broil instead Have had the beef marinating in a puree of chilis, fresh lime and orange juice, garlic, and cilantro (plus a few other ingredients) for a few hours. Also made a chimichurra sauce to go with it. Going to serve it on flour tortillas with guacamole, with some refried beans on the side.

    Om - if you start driving now, you'll just make it.
