Since Pasilla peppers were on sale I just had to make Chile Rellenos. I’ve made these before and posted the recipe and method so I’ll keep this a little short and just post some links to the recipes for those that care about that.

First on I made the relleno sauce. Here are the ingredients.

I roasted the all veggies

and then put them in a large blender

and gave it a spin.

After this I made up some Mexican rice. Ingredients:

Sautéed the veggies and then added the rice for 5 minutes and put this in the rice cooker with the liquids.

Here are the ingredients for the Chile Rellenos.

I roasted the chiles

and put them in a plastic bag to steam for 15 minutes.

I then then skinned them, sliced them and seeded them.

I stuffed them with the Queso Oaxaca, dredged them in flour, dipped them in the beaten egg mixture and the fried them up on both side for 3 minutes.

While I was cooking the rellenos my wife cooked up some frijoles. Here it is everything plated up with some tortilla chips, some pickled carrots and a Coronado Brewing Sting Ray IPA.

Thank you Joe. That is very kind of you to say.

 

I know it may seem as if I drink a lot of beer but in reality I have less than 1 a day. I just love trying lots of different craft brews with my meals. Coronado Brewing is another local brewery here in San Diego County. There are over 70 of them and many of them have a great reputation both locally and nationally. Normally I would've went with a Mexican beer (such as Negra Modelo) with this but we had some friends over and he brought this with him. I'm glad he did as it was excellent.

I just found my next cook. I LOVE chile rellenos and the mexican food here is either awful or awful expensive. I may try pinto beans in the pressure cooker for more interesting frijoles.

      I been wanting to do this for a long time but didn’t have a proper equipment or the correct weather conditions. I recently bought an A-MAZE-N smoking tube.

      It was expected to get down to 41 degrees (fairly cool nights for Southern California) and it was only 67 during the day so I decided to give this a try. Around 4:00 PM I started by cooling the kamado down by placing 5 pieces of Blue Ice in it.

      Around 8:30 it reached 50 degrees outside, so I started up the A-MAZE-N smoking tube in my gasser so as not to heat up the kamado.

      Once it ignited, I let it burn for a few minutes

      before blowing out the flame.

      I let it smoke while I went in and prepared the cheese. I had purchased 2 lbs. of Gouda, Colby Jack and Sharp Cheddar at Costco.

      I took them out of their wrappers.

      I cut them up into smaller sizes so they could absorb more smoke and placed them on a wire rack.

      I then placed the A-MAZE-N smoking tube in the bottom of my kamado. I next put in both of my ceramic heat deflectors, then the grill grates and then the rack of cheese. (You can see some of the smoke coming up around the deflectors)

      I closed the lid and observed a small amount of smoke coming out the top vent.

      An hour later it looked like this.

      After two hours in the smoke I opened the lid. WOW!

      I brought the rack in the house where I could see a subtle change in the cheese color.

      I vacuum packed them all and placed them in the fridge to age and mellow for 3 weeks.

      This morning I when out to see how much of the pellets were left in the A-MAZE-N smoking tube. It looks like approximately 1/3 was left unburnt. I’m thinking it could’ve gone at least another hour.

      I can’t wait to try them but will wait to let time do its thing on them first.

      On New Year’s Eve we had our friends over for dinner.  They were getting up early to go to the Rose Parade so the evening ended early but we still had a great time.

       
      I made 2 pizzas. The first was a Hawaiian Pizza with red onion, black olives, Canadian bacon and pineapple.



       


       



       


      The second was a Meat Lover’s Pizza with red onion, black olives, peperoni and Italian sausage.




       



       



       


      Both were delicious but I have to say the Meat Lovers was my favorite.

       
      Thanks for looking.

      Most of you who’ve been around a few years, know this is the time of year that I go full Griswold. Here’s a pic of my house from a few years ago.

      It gets a little bigger every year. This year I rented a boom to put lights up in our 50’ tall Italian Cypress you can see to the left of our garage. (Sorry no photo of it this year)

       
      Anyway, as is our family’s tradition, we host everyone on Christmas Eve for dinner and presents. In attendance were my two brothers that live here in California. They came down from the L.A. area along with my niece, my nephew and his fiancé. (in addition to my wife and I) We like to vary the meal menu each year. One year we will cook Tamales, (A So. Cal. Christmas staple) the next we’ll do Ham, then Turkey, then a nice Ribeye Roast. We hadn’t had Ham since 2016 so we settled on that.
       
      We were quite busy making all the dinner and fixing’s, so I didn’t have a lot of time to take a whole lot of photos but here are the few that I did get. Here’s the ham on the kamado for the first few hours at 275.

       
      Here’s a pic of the stove with the beans, carrots, potatoes and gravy on top. (Green Bean Casserole and biscuits in the oven)

       
      Here’s the ham after the 2 hours in foil with the pineapple and cherries added for another 10 minutes at 425.

       
      Here’s the ham on the table waiting for the rest of the fixings to join it. (It’s funny but I didn’t realize that this is almost the exact same photo from 2016)

       
      Here’s everyone waiting to dig in.

       
      Here the one photo I got of the food and table. (As you can see we broke out our finest plastic cups for this dinner )

       
      Here’s what everyone looked like when I asked if they could wait for me to take more / better photos of the food.

       
      Everything was delicious and we had a great time that evening.
       
      Merry Christmas everyone and thanks for looking.

      A certain knife dealer site had so good of prices on some nice knives in BD1N stainless that I couldn’t help myself. (It’s a sickness I tell ya!) Anyway, here’s some pics of my new tools.

       
      9” hollow edge craving knife and fork set.



      6” curved boning knife.



      I had a Big Poppa gift certificate I’d won in a throwdown that was burning a hole in my pocket so, I placed a couple of items I didn’t already have in my cart.



      Also added 2 rubs on sale that I thought I’d use a lot.



      I already used the carving knife for Christmas Eve dinner with my family and hope to use the other items real soon.

       
      Thanks for looking.

      We spent Thanksgiving with good friends and neighbors and their family. We were tasked with providing the dressing and a pecan pie. The pie we bought from Costco but for the dressing I made my favorite Cranberry, Apple and Walnut dressing.
      (Recipe can be found here:
      Here are most of the ingredients.

      Melted the butter and sautéed the onions and celery.

      Combined the cranberries, apple and walnuts.

       After the butter, onions, celery, apple cider and chicken stock had simmered 10 minutes I stirred it into the dry dressing and spread it out into the baking/serving dish.

      I covered this with AF and cooked it for 20 minutes at 350 degrees and then uncovered it. I cooked for another 25 minutes at 350 and this is the results.

      Here are some pics of the rest of the dinner entrée’s that we enjoyed.
      Mashed potatoes.

      Miscellaneous sides.

      White meat plate.

      Dark meat plate.

      My plate.

      We had a great time of food and fellowship. Hope you all had a great day as well.
      Thanks for looking.
