    Last night was buttermilk chicken, cooked in the air-fryer. (We use the FoodSaver vacuum marinator to get the buttermilk deeply infused into the meat. Then we just coat it with seasoned breadcrumbs) With that, we had some oven-baked fries & some corn. The fries were just OK, but the chicken was great.

    Recently made a couple pots of chili that turned out well. I did make a horrible attempt at a shrimp and sausage jambalaya last week that I’m still embarrassed about.
    Tonight the wife made a good chicken pot pie with a Costco rotisserie chicken.

    Pork tenderloin marinated in teriyaki sauce, soy sauce, worchestershire sauce, garlic and thyme. I grilled the tenderloin. It came out nice and crisp on the outside with the marinade all carmelized and tender and juicy on the inside. As a side I made some small baby potatoes and onions in a cast iron skillet with some olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper. Late in the cooking I added some balsamic vinegar and honey.

    Ok. First I have to mention yesterday. My wife wanted a birthday party with a country theme and her request was that I make mac and cheese. This was big because the last time I made mac and cheese was probably 20 years ago. It was insanely delicious with lots and lots of cheese in it. She loved it. Unfortunately she came down with a stomach virus that very night and wasn't able to even think about mac and cheese again...............until now. So I went looking for some recipes. I took a little from there and a little from there and went for it. Made two aluminum chaffing dishes of it. And it seemed to be a real hit. I used 6 or 7 cheeses. Next time I'm going to add a little mustard powder to the recipe and I may use a little more evaporated milk or something that will add a little bit more moisture to it for a creamier inside. I crisp up the top with melted cheese under the broiler.

    And tonight is the first night of Rosh Hashanah. It was a late night last night, my wife isn't Jewish so I decided to just go down to the local deli and picked up some matzah ball soup, beef brisket with au jus, Israeli salad, potato pancakes with apple sauce, gefilte fish with horseradish, cinnamon rugelach. Happy New Year everyone.

    When I was in school (Kansas City) when Ross Hashanah came half of our school was gone. Lol. And you really went full blown on the Mac and cheese. My wife hates Mac and cheese so I just open a box of Kraft for me and fix it....problem solved.

    Yeah. I kind of had to go all out. First it's her birthday so she's gotta like it and be impressed. But then there is also a NYC chef on the block who was in attendance and if he decides to eat, I want to impress him as well. Unfortunately he had eaten before coming over. He's weird that way. When he's cooking, he doesn't eat the food he makes. I don't get it. But it doesn't matter because he makes some of the most delicious stuff. Now I want to tweak the Mac & Cheese recipe to get it where it is better than anything anyone's ever tasted. That's my goal. I may never get there but I'll sure enjoy eating my samples along the way.
