Christmas tamale making.
From the NY Times.
and a scene I painted taken from a photo taken by a pal of mine, Mike Farmer. It’s at Kreuz Market in Lockhart, TX
I’m having to learn how to use a gas grill for something other than straight grilling.. it’s not like my smokers where I can use offset heat.
Here’s a nice pork roast I did for Memorial Day.
I got some of their pork/porcini/thyme sausage on Monday. And a little of their bacon. It’s all good!
I’d have more photos, but the batteries in my camera went South. Sorry folks. I poached these in a bit of home made chicken stock and white vermouth. They went fast!
Wow.. this was great. They made their own beans and the cole slaw was not some bland and overly sweet grocery store salad bar mush. I was most impressed. This was for the grand opening at Local Pig, a an artisanal butcher shop that produces charcuterie in the East Bottoms. This is about two blocks from Knucklehead’s, a music venue where have I occasionally sat in on accordion at the blues jams, just north, across the railroad tracks.
There was quite a crowd, even when I got there a bit after noon. It was chilly and windy, in the 40s, but pleasant. There seemed to be a rather well-behaved crowd.
The plates were quite nice. The buns/rolls were amazingly good. Not some sort of Bunny Bread/burger bun dreck.
Here’s a photo of my plate.
If I had known, I could have gotten some ribs. But I didn’t. Here’s a plate of rib remains. Sigh. Whimper.
Lest we forget, the guest of honor… a noble beast..
And here’s the guest of honor with the woman who was nobly serving the Boulevard Ales on tap. Good work, folks!
Not forgetting, EL TORITO #3 (I think it’s number 3) just opened its new supermercado on the north side of Independence Avenue, across from ACE Hardware. It’s a really nice place to shop for comida and has a great carniceria.
