Spring prewashing the Lady Boss' plate, alternating with defending it from Strut who she is 100% certain wants to steal it from her.
Strut and Belle watching The Lady Boss serve pork shoulder ...
Main course: glazed carrots and smoked pork shoulder, both heated up sous vide, the carrots finished in the skillet. With the excellent Duchesse de Bourgogne Cherry.
First food course: cream of mushroom soup. White and red onion sautéed in butter, then the chopped mushrooms with some thyme, black pepper, and lemon juice. In the meantime, the stems drawing out in...
Third course ... eh, beer match.
Two smoked pork shoulders, bone removed from each and set aside for split pea soup, the rest cut in slabs. One each in the sous vide for dinner, the rest vacuum packed and going into the freezer.
A spare keg of Magners was acquired before the current one ran low, let alone out.
Just to cheer up Dave Argent: Redbreast finished on sherry casks.
And so it begins ... A sherry before (starting to cook) dinner: my "go and pick up the spare keg of cider" at Total Wine got a bit out of hand.
