Well, ladies and gentlemen, it's here! That's right, December. That last month of the year. That time when we begin to ponder what has happened in our lives in the past year, and what we can look forward to in the year to come. A time when we consider all that we have...and even...all that we want! I like December. It is a good month for reflection, the weather is nice and chilly, and their is always good food and fun to be had.
We closed out November quite well. I took last week off of work and we spent the time hanging around the house, playing with Chloe, painting, and enjoying thanksgiving with family. It is the first time I have ever taken that much time off of work and just stayed home. And I have to say it was quite enjoyable. Perhaps I will do it again.
For dinner tonight I tried some thing new...I grilled new/small red potatoes in our grill "pan". They turned out great.
I put the pan over the hot flame, then after the pan was hot brushed with oil and placed over flame. Then I put the potatoes in the pan.
After cutting the potatoes basically had three sides. So, I cooked each side about 3 minutes or so. During the cooking I lightly brushed the potatoes with oil to prevent sticking and promote even cooking. Once all of the potatoes were fairly "moist" on the outside I sprinkled (fairly liberally) with a salt, black pepper, garlic powder & paprika mixture. After 3 min on each side, I put the pan on my warming rack and cooked the pork chops and grilled squash w/ parmegiano cheese.
Here are the results (btw the sauce on the pork steaks is big bob gibsons...)
