Here's a little preview: butterfly'd chicken sitting on a bed of Videla onions, carrots, and garlic in a cast-iron skillet greased in bacon drippings. Should steam some nice flavors into the chicken and work great to make some jus once the bird's done. I guess technically I should use some cooking sherry or a little wine for the jus, but I guess I'll have to give it the ol' college try (pun intended) with some PBR.

And here's the after shot:

Tossed it under the broiler for the last five minutes to crisp up a bit, maybe I should have set it on low instead of high.

Oh man that looks good. Of course you had me a "bacon drippings." Don't be afraid of the dark bits, they'll be really tasty. The hash looked great too.

Oh, I wasn't afraid of it. Ended up eating both wings and quite a bit of the skin as well.

Sister Schubert's Sausage rolls. If I have to sit there and watch two hours of The Bachelorette, I'm going to do it with a fifth of Buffalo Trace and a pan of those delightful things.

From a series I call "quinoa surprise." Made a little differently each time depending on ingredients on hand but usually a leafy green sauteed with a lean meat and thrown together with quinoa. A perfect post-ride dinner that delivers nutrition efficiently and packs easily for lunch the next day. Tonight's featured collard greens and chicken sausage.

^^ Looks nice. I've been doing a lot of cold orzo salads lately- olives, tomatoes, basil, and such. Good for summer gatherings + easy to just show up with, already made.

Put your potatoes on a wooden spoon, slice 'em thin but not all the way through (the spoon helps there), oil 'em up (whatever fat you like, I used olive oil), bake for 35-40 minutes at 425, pull out and brush with a little more fat (olive oil here), season them how you like (I think these were parm, minced garlic, salt, pepper, and a touch of panko), bake 'em for another twenty minutes or so, until done.

Feel free to mix up the seasoning however you like, I've done a great version with diced bacon and cheddar. They're an easy side and look pretty too. They're great for sopping up leftover sauce and reheat in the oven pretty well.

Thanks guys, but it's actually all fairly simple stuff, often just one-plate cooking and improvised from whatever I find around the kitchen. Most of what I've been doing lately has been baked chicken breasts, broiled broccoli, and steamed green beans to drop this last 10 lbs.
