Not tonight, but last night, Saturday night. We had a shrimp boil at my daughter's house. I bought 6 pounds of fresh shrimp and a couple of onions. She and her husband supplied about 4 pounds of taters and a dozen ears of corn. It all went into the pot with about a half a box of Cajun seasoning (it really needed more; much, much more! LOL) I also supplied a 1.5 liter bottle of wine and it turned into a nice evening.

And finally; Supper's ready!!!

I've just had a heap of sourdough pancakes loaded with Lawyer's Wigs, fried briefly in butter and dusted with a mix of white pepper and smoked paprika, absolutely full to the brim!

I had some sourdough starter out in the garden today to catch some wild yeast, so there was a good bit to discard when I brought it in and fed it, hence the pancake abundance. And a post by Quietone the other day put me in mind of the Lawyer's Wigs so I hunted down some prime specimens during the afternoon.

Beef Barley Soup is what’s on tonight’s menu, smells so good it’s hard to continue, fresh baked bread risen high and light and a hot pumpkin pie that is out of sight.

Solid rain for hunting again today. Bummer = empty handed by dark. Oh well.

Racks of pork ribs, dry rubs, over a beer pan 3 hrs @ 300F.
Baked heads of garlic on my toasted baguette slices.

Nice bit of stilton there Ian. Looks to be too many cherries for a dundee cake, genoa cake?

Churchills favorite wasnt it? Dundee cake.

Ive devoured a number of florentines, almond and chocolate. Which we only get at Christmas. [With numerous cups of tea of course.] Nice, but a bit sickly after a few.

Festive foodie things for the next few days. Scallops tonight, baked tuna tomorrow, far too much Polish ethnic stuff Christmas eve,
probably BBQ a chicken with some apple wood smoke on the 25th.

Yesterday was my oldest grandson's, James, birthday and he had requested I smoke some pork ribs. I seasoned and smoked two racks over mesquite smoke and added corn on the cob and baked beans. He had also requested a "cookie cake' instead of a birthday cake so we made that (one giant cookie the size of a cake) and his mom (my daughter, Nikole) decorated it and added the candles.

Can't beat chicken soup, noodles or no. Jewish penicillin and proven to have effective properties I like a well flavoured broth of chicken and the trinity of onion, celery and carrot, strained. Then I can either sip it when ridden with the dreadful disease Madam refers to as Manthrax, or get busy with some quick stir fry veg, mustard seed, cumin etc, and noodles.

Everyone has their versions, bird soup must be one of our oldest cooked foods.
