I'm getting towards that billion Dave, in fact I've calculated that I should reach it approximately in the year 2189.

Well, it looks pretty dam nice to me, right up my alley.  I wish I had more time for cooking, my wife and I used to go to a lot more effort before the kids came along.  I made a bbq'ed / hickory smoked roast with potatos and root vegetables on sunday, that was extravagant for my standards at the moment!

Dave, you are absolutely ruthless in the kitchen. Amazing looking grub. Respectin' it!

Here's the sandwich we scarfed last night. Hot turkey, melted muenster cheese, sprouts, red romaine, tomato, avocado, bacon, toasted rye/pumpernickel with cream cheese. The summer is creeping in so no more gravy or heavy, fatty dishes. Well, until the next hangover that's surely imminent. Still want to do a Zuppa Toscana for my newly converted, now non-vegetarian ladyfriend. All the jugs of protein supplements in the house are getting strange looks from her. Poor little jugs may end up in the waste basket as they go the way of obsolete. It's a bit sad really.  8)

That's a killer sandwich, looks fantastic!

Can't wait for summer as well, tomatoes! Started 48 plants last week (i keep half), haven't had a fresh tomato since the last one from the garden of 2015.

We had enough snow yesterday to turn everything white again, today it hit 13C.

I can't cook worth a sh*t but the wife can. I'll see if she can make that sprout sandwich. She likes stuff like this. It looks yummy!

I feel horrible and lazy, reading this thread.

Last night's tea was Tegel chicken patties, in store-bought buns, with processed cheese and Whitlock's Tomato Chutney.

for this saturday at lunch we make a "chinese" vegetal grill, low fat because I need to loose some weight! Included on the mix, portobello mushroom, shitake mushroom, white mushroom, aspargus, french garlic, broccoli and soy sprouts. All grilled in the wok, and near the end, a little bit of soy sauce.

yumm.... that hot sauce looks great.

Went to a buddies house to cook last night. Didn't snap any process shots as we were too busy having a blast to be bothered.
EDIT - Found some process pics. The whiskey was flowing nicely I guess...

-Pork loin with rosemary, thyme, cumin, honey mustard and spicy bbq sauce slathered on before the bake.
-Mashed potatoes with slow roasted garlic, rosemary, bacon, parmesan, butter, pepper.
-Broccoli quickly sauteed in bacon fat.
-White, thin pepper gravy from bacon fat and a few dashes of stock.

Overall it was well balanced and I got to teach a good friend (who is becoming very enthusiastic about all things culinary) some kitchen tips. He did an excellent job on the gravy. Hopefully we'll stick to our bi-weekly plan to cook a variety of styles. Thanks for looking.

Long weekend and me and wife decided to go for a ride in the west region of the country. Starting with a big grilled veal rib stick for lunch, and some mixed pork grilled for dinner... For those in Portugal visit "a taberna do quinzena" in Santarém, you will like the place.

Looks great! Back a few years... my wife and I cycled from London to Montijo for a friend's wedding. We ate like royalty while in Portugal, we had enormous appetites, fantastic food, the people were pretty fantastic too! Great times!
