Catching Up

Last week, I managed to get in a little vacation of sorts: heading off to the family place in the mountains to spend a few days with my parents and some of my sisters. I even took time off from cooking, enjoying my dad's expertise on the grill and literally eating up the home-cooked goodness my mother provided. But I did make Gashouse Eggs one morning for breakfast. And the recipe now resides in the camp log. Of course, since our place is gas-lit, I got to miss most of the impact of the big Northeast blackout.

Since my return, I've been very busy getting ready for the World Science Fiction Convention, and attending to all the usual stuff. So, experimental cooking has taken a bit of a back seat. Still, I've managed to go back and revisit some of the recipes I made earlier this summer.

Sunday night: Pork Chops w/ Sage-Parmesan Crust
Wednesday night: Chicken w/ Tomato/Feta Sauce
Thursday night: Roasted Salmon

I was especially pleased to be able to use some of my home-made chicken stock on Wednesday night. I'm not sure whether I'll have to time to play around in the kitchen much in the upcoming week as I continue to prepare for the convention, but the cooler weather of fall is on the horizon and I expect it will be much easier to spend extra time in the kitchen. I'm definitely looking forward to baking season...
