Good morning. Coffee is on. Happy Saturday. I myself have a long “To Do” list this weekend along with a problem I am trying to resolve at work. So if I can I will be working on that. Not to mention I need to do some cooking and some baking! Here in New York it has been in the seventies. Lovely weather for a picnic and a bottle of wine. Terrible for baking and eating soup. It is so nice I might be forced outside to the barbeque grill somthing. Whatever I do you will here about. For instance, I had this great idea for “Oktoberfest Month” at work, so I made a loin of pork, plus Kielbasa with Sauerkraut cooked in a bit of apple juice. Do to the lack of time to cook pork it needed to be done in the Insta-pot. The loin of pork turned out amazing. Yum, but the kielbasa burst open and although it tasted okay was not very appetizing looking. So this recipe needs to be tweaked a bit but for going into the cookbook.
I am planning on making a big pot of soup Sunday for Monday’s lunch crowd at work. The spooking, the spicy, the famous Cuban Black Bean Soup. Tuesday, I want to do a Cuban Panini. So today I will be shopping and running around to other errands before hitting the grill and the beers later.
Sunday, I am also hopping to be cooking a birthday dinner for someone special if she does not already have plans. Jennifer will be texting her today to find out if she would like to come over and celebrate her birthday with us. I don’t even know what I making yet. I will have Jennifer ask what her favorite meal is and cook that.
That’s all for now. As usual, I will post what I cook and eat what can or is it drink what I can? Either way stay tuned for more “American Cookery” and drunken debauchery coming your way!
