Chorizo and Kale fork soup

Chorizo and Kale fork soup

I know, I know… There aren’t a whole lot of people out there that get excited about kale. I get it. I understand. However, I feel like the delicious potential of this leafy green is often overlooked due to it’s tendency to cause horrendous gas and/or mulch-like diarrhea.

I must that that I, myself,  was worried as to whether or not these two ingredients would play well together. But despite the odds, they actually complimented each other rather nicely and resulted in a delicious and semi-nutritious dish. I bet it would have been even better had the chorizo actually been decent and not just some imitation sausage covered in chili powder and sold as chorizo.

That’s all you get. I’m not much for typing up recipes being that I hardly ever follow them.

Bacon DUH

 

There’s really no reason for this particular post… I made bacon and I felt that it deserved to have its picture taken. Wow, that rhymed. I’m an unintentional rapper that specializes in bustin’ out bacon beats!

Chicken and Zuchinni

Chicken & zucchini for dinner.

Tonight I created this chicken & zucchini dish using heirloom tomatoes and herbs from my garden. I’ve already eaten it but now that I look at this picture, I wish I still had some left. It was delicious. Anyway, cooking is awesome and I don’t think I’ll ever get sick of it.

Smoked Pork Loin

Smoked Pork Loin

Yesterday I smoked a chicken. Today I smoked a pork loin. The pork loin ended up being far more delicious than the chicken but I believe that is due to the fact that it’s easier to smoke a pork loin. Chickens are hollow and have extremities of various sizes that cook at different times. A pork loin is just a solid piece of meat. It’s easier to control. So yeah, my neighborhood has smelled like smoldering oak and seared flesh for the past couple of days but so far no one has been complaining. haha

Smoked Chicken for Dinner!

Smoked Chicken for Dinner!

Lately I have had a craving for amazing Carolina style BBQ but haven’t been able to get my fix because no one really offers it in my area. My only option to satisfy this craving was to bust out the smoker and get to work. Tonight I am smoking this chicken. Tomorrow will be a pork loin. Who knows what will happen after that. For all I know, my craving could subside. So yeah, there’s rain in the forecast but I could care less. I am smoking this chicken!
