so much grub

so i'm having some technical difficulties with my blog right now :( no links or pictures or anything interesting...sigh, just hop over to my facebook page to see pics of what i've been making.

thankfully i didn't have any technical issues in the kitchen this week - i got so much done!!! on tuesday i picked up 35 pounds of beef from getaway farm & i've been cooking ever since. i restocked three main courses and will have a much more well-rounded menu this weekend.

first off, i made a new batch of shepherd's pie. i cooked the beef up with onions, garlic, celery, carrots, peas, corn & lots of homemade bbq sauce to give it some tang. then it's topped off with cheddar-green onion mashed potatoes. this one is always a crowd pleaser, a staple of my menu & gluten free to boot!

the second dish was a fresh batch of moroccan meatballs. this one has become the best seller of late & it's been difficult to keep it in stock. the meatballs are getaway beef & seasoned with garlic, ginger, coriander, parsley, sumac, chillies and a touch of curry. they're smothered in piquant tomato sauce with fennel seed, olives, roasted peppers, dates, harissa & lemon. the side dish is red quinoa with kale from my garden, toasted almonds, harissa & green onions. this is another gluten-free option.

finally i made a batch of brisket & blue. it's braised beef brisket with red wine, leeks, celery root, pears, sundried tomatoes & balsamic. after the braise it gets brightened up with fresh cherry tomatoes & italian parsley. the side dish is creamy blue cheese gnocchi with roasted garlic, wilted kale & red wine vinegar. this one is pretty serious comfort food.

so last weekend was super busy for me at crafters. i sold 3 cases of bbq sauce - great stocking stuffer! this week i replenished my stock of maple bourbon & i'll do my best to make sure i have all the flavours on hand heading in to christmas.

there are three salads this week too, all $5 each. the broccoli is the same as usual, the beet saw the addition of toasted pine nuts & the quinoa is the grapefruit-fennel combo.

don't forget that i have gift certificates available & they're A LOT cuter than last year :)

ok back to the kitchen, still have all the frostings to make & a special batman birthday cake - this could be interesting! see you all over the weekend.
