Let's eat and the renovations begin!

Jonathan has left to pick up his dad and I am getting the house ready. Dinner tonight is on my mind this early in the morning........the meat will be beef....and the rest will come to me as the day goes on. On sunday we start tearing off the roof, and when I say roof, the whole thing trusses and all are coming down. A second floor will be added and I will be cooking breakfast, lunch, snacks and dinner for everyone who shows up to lend a hand! (And there will be beer and wine and maybe some tequila, for me). Pollo Asado will be for sure one night and a beautiful venison roast and....pulled pork sandwiches on fresh spelt bread, cookies, ohhh I can go on like this forever...but we shall see what comes, less typing more cooking!!


  1. Oh pork, how I love you!! Made pork/brie/caramalised acorn squash, onion, apple open-grilled sandwiches last night. Frickin' delicious.
    Need some inspiration. I have two quite ripe pink grapefruits and 2kg pork ribs. Any ideas? Am thinking maybe asian style...slow roasted with ginger...??

  2. Mmmmmm.....grapefruit juiced in a bowl or segmented using all the juice from the cuts. Toasted sesame oil (just a touch), soya sauce (this is your base), some spicy heat (just enough to tickle the tongue) molasses or brown sugar or rice syrup, fresh ginger as much as you salt as the soy is enough.
    Mix all in a bowl.
    Add ribs.
    Slow cook
    With a coleslaw salad?
    hope that helps and thanks for asking!

  3. Miss you too Nic!!!
    This is a great blog you have started; I spend quite a lot of time doing random searches for ingredient combinations and often come up short. Gaawwd I am such a housewife!
    Great idea for the ribs, I have all the ingredients you mentioned, so will be easy:)Yum. Good luck with the tequila! I will do shot in your honor while I cook.

  4. Let me know how it goes. I will do my very best to help you anytime. Tell your friends as I want to see how much of this I can do.
    Talk to you soon!

  5. Hey, the ribs were AWESOME. I also added Kecap Manis, a pinch of five spice and a star aniseed. Cooked them for a few hours on 150C in a cast iron oven dish, then turned it down to 80C, covered them and left them for about another hour. The meat was delicious, tender and fell off the bone. Homemade coleslaw was great on side too. Nice one!!
