Saturday it was the 14th of February, and as you all know, that’s a beautiful day for people in love. Although we never ever join in into this extremely commercial festivity, it is a day to contemplate the love we have for eachother. Since I like BBQ and my wife has to cook every day, my love is expressed using the tools at hand, knowing a kitchen, some knifes, ingredients and a grill outside.
Temperatures of around freezing, sunny, no wind and it’s beautiful outside.
Let’s cook Gumbo in the Dutch oven! I’ve been able to get my vegetable guy to whip up some Okra, what appears to be a key ingredient in the gumbo.
This recipe was given to me by a friend. I have no idea where he got it, but I can at least give him credit for a delicious hot wing (or leg) recipe. Since we celebrate new years eve with friends and kids, this recipe will definitely do the trick!
This weekend, we had chicken. I love chicken, my wife loves chicken, the kids love chicken. Who doesn’t love chicken? I’ve searched the net for a decent way to cook some legs and thighs, since I didn’t want to do it the ‘old fashioned’ way, just grilling it of on the Q.
I’ve found a wonderful recipe from Jamie, which I really loved, and since I (almost) had all the ingredients in house, I decided to give it a go.
Yesterday I had the craving of doing something from charcoal again, and I must say, the weather was fine. No rain, temperature around 7 degrees celcius and little to no wind. My son was in the mood for helping me as well, so I thought, what the heck, let’s fire it up.
First lets have a look what’s in the fridge. I had some carrots, celery, garlic, leek,mushrooms, onions and chicken filets. Sounds like a plan to get a nice stew started.
