    Made the first potato & leek soup of the season (topped with a mushroom medley). The gf said it was phenomenon, and two other people I served it to couldn't stop eating.

    Hot or cold?

    From the freezer I pulled a bag filled with some meaty-type parcels, and thought...what is this? It was red, with substantial fat, cut into slabs, some of which had bone in. Mrs. T thought it was pork, but I would have sworn it was a thick-cut new york strip, with the bone in.

    At this point some of you are no doubt questioning my sanity, but after a weekend of rainy afternoons and non-stop tax code review, well, you're probably right.

    I thaw the parcel and then re-freeze what we're not going to use. Search through a cookbook and find a recipe for pan-fried steaks, with sauce. Long story short, pulled together a simple dish of corn, potatoes, and pork steaks cooked like beef. It didn't suck.

    Hot, which is how I prefer my p&l soup.

    Thomas, meet Sharpie.


    That's the weird part: normally I label with cut and date frozen so we can practice good freezer management. I think Mrs. Thomas was responsible for this, and now that I've opened that particular door I now wonder whether it was really pork. Could have been emu or unicorn. But she hates it, teh lamb, so I have to sneak away for my lamb fix.

    My gf used to not eat lamb. She doesn't like eating cute animals. One day I grilled a leg of lamb to perfection. My gf couldn't stop eating it. But since she still has the hang up with eating cute animals, we now call it "Greek beef" because lamb is so ubiquitous in Greek cuisine. She doesn't have a problem with eating lamb anymore. [​IMG] Now, I just need to come up with another name for veal.

    I was able to buy a case of crown roasts from Sysco, some time ago. White Marble, $1.50/lbs, just beautiful stuff (it pays to spend millions with a food company [​IMG] ). So broke down a whole rack into beautiful, thick cut pork chops, and did the vacuum seal/freeze with most, saved two for dinner.

    Dipped in butter, coated in parmesan cheese, panko, spices, and oven baked to perfection. Had with grilled asparagus and pan fried cabbage. Paired with 2007 Novy Family Four Mile Creek red blend.

    Same here, actually. But as Matt will tell you, I am a plebe. Glad to know I'm at least in good company.

    You didn't order coffee, did you?

    Nothing against cold p&l soup, but I'm not a fan of cold soups in general. And with p&l soup in particular, I find that it gets a little too thick for my liking when it's cold.

    Pio, would you recommend getting a vacuum sealer? Is there a noticable difference when freezing meat?

    I recommend them. I use mine for anything from foie:

    to sauces, scallops, etc. It's just the two of us, so when I get a deal on something like these large racks of meat, I can break them down into meal size portions for us.

    Weird, I'm shopping for one of these right now. Which model do you have? I'm looking at this V2440 from BPS for about $100 shipped. The newer/more expensive models all seem to be junk according to reviews on Amazon.

    That's the model we have. We got it from CostCo, a couple of years ago, when our old vacuum sealer gave out. It works pretty well, IMO.

    My wife did the honors: "Trust me, I'm kosher."

    The thing about piglet teeth is that they are quite human. You almost expect braces.

    Have you moved back to Nova Scotia yet? Or Saskcwodhiwwan?
