The Old Guy … Excerpt: Journal Entry #12 …

Excerpt: Journal Entry July 27 2019: Baking Pork Pot Pies …

Started the ingredients cooking for my version of Pork Pie. I am very interested how this first version will turn out. I cubed Pork Tenderloin and slow cooked it in Dark Brown Gravy. In that I added Green Peas & Carrots with Pearl Onions and some Diced Celery. It should be good. As it turned out I froze one Pork Pie and ate the last one. A single pie was almost too much.
Excerpt: Journal Entry July 28 2019: Baking Chicken Pot Pies …

Went to church this morning and straight home afterwards. Started my Chicken Pot Pies which I have decided to freeze. The Pork Pot Pie I made and had for dinner last night filled me up … I was nearly miserable I was so full. So I have a frozen Pork Pie and two Chicken Pies. They turned out to be not quite cost effective. Debatable if I will make them again any time soon.

The Old Guy … Cooking Something Different … Noodles & Shrimp …

Dinner Is Served

Simple menu with Rice Noodles cooked in boiling Onion soup. Don’t over cook the delicate noodles or they will become soft and fall apart. A little under cooked works well because the noodles will continue to cook in the serving bowl while the rest of the dish is being put together..

I used Jumbo Raw Shrimp instead of precooked Shrimp because I wanted to carefully cook the delectable morsels. Overcooked seafood is not good. The Shrimp were thawed in cold water, carefully pealed and then cooked in a combination of fresh minced Garlic and real Butter. Additional seasoning should be added as required for personal preferences.

Plated … This dinner was better than it looks. Prepared easily and in a timely manner this recipe is a keeper and can be modified to accommodate Chicken, Pork. or Veggies. The Onion Soup has a nice presence and works so much better than Chicken stock. As an added hint, the bundle of Rice Noodles should be broken in half. Shorter noodles to make eating this dish easier.

The Old Guy … Cooking Something Different … Relaxing Lunch …

Relaxing Lunch

Side salad fixin’s. Fresh Lettuce, Cucumber, Tomato, Sweet Onion, Radishes, and Celery were chopped into a medium salad. Salt, boiled Egg Wedges, and Lite Sweet Vidalia Onion Dressing were added last.

An Onion Bun was buttered and pan toasted. The warm bun was given a covering of Miracle Whip, Swiss Cheese and Fresh Lettuce.

Layers of thin Ham are then added along with Bread & Butter Chips and Tomato slices.

Plated. A round toothpick with an Olive on top kept the divided sandwich sections from falling apart. A perfect combination of side salad and Ham & Cheese sandwich made for a nice relaxing lunch.

The Old Guy … Cooking Something Different … Pork Steak w/Gravy & Sweet Potatoes …

enter stuff three

Peeled and quartered Sweet Potatoes are slow boiled until tender. They are then transferred into a baking dish for final oven cooking.

The sow boiled Sweet Potatoes are covered with Cinnamon Sugar and butter and baked for two hours at three hundred fifty degrees. I reduced the heat to two hundred fifty degrees an hour before serving. This kept the dish at a good serving temperature.

A nice cut of Pork Steak is flour dusted and pan fried. Length of cooking time depends on thickness.

Assembly … Fresh Sweet Corn buttered w/salt & pepper w/Buttered Slow Baked Sweet Potatoes

With or Without Gravy. Pan Fried Pork Steak is hard to turn down.

Plated the way I like it. Pan Fried Pork Steak w/Homemade Gravy, Baked Sweet Potatoes w/Real Butter and Cinnamon Sugar and Fresh Corn-on-the-cob.

Words don’t due justice to how good this meal tastes. Tender Pork Steak and Sweet Potatoes work together splendidly. The Sweet Corn was tender and memorable. All-in-All a grand meal soon to be repeated.

.The Old Guy … Cooking Something Different … #06

This meal is one that I haven’t cooked for many, many years. When the main dish is nearly ready for presentation, I start the side dishes. Steamed California style vegetables prove to be an excellent side dish … 

Next a sectioned Sweet Onion is topped with a package of Artificial Sweetener, Cinnamon Sugar and Real Butter. It is then microwaved to perfection …

The main dish is Two Day Pork Spare Ribs which are slow boiled for a day, chilled overnight, and then slow baked under an aluminum foil tent at 200 degrees for eight hours. Every hour during the baking, the ribs are generously basted with melted butter.

Tender Sweet Onion with Cinnamon Sugar

Green Veggies, Sweet Onion and fall off the bone Pork Spare Ribs. Describing the incredible taste isn’t possible.

This meal is going to be repeated over and over again …
