    Default Rainy day cooking

    My wife is going to cook a pot of chili to go with our dismal rainy weather.

    My friend is coming for a visit from LV, and bringing some boudin and
    andouille he bought in LA. The real deal. He will make a pot of real Cajun
    gumbo tomorrow, and we'll probably snack on that for the rest of the
    weekend. Too bad wifey is on that GHB diet, but I will eat her portion of
    the boudin.

    Tonight I'm making beef stew from left over pot roast. It's been gloomy
    and rainy here for days. Comfort food weather.

    That's exactly what I'm in the process of making...

    Last weekend it was a big bunch of ham + bean soup...the week before it was
    gumbo.

    For Super Bowl the corner bar is having a chili cook-off, I'm thinking of
    something along the lines of a duck and andouille sausage chili. First
    prize is a hundred buck bar tab, it won't hurt to try...

    Wouldn't that mean simply cutting the pot roast into chunks and
    reheating... all the veggies should have already been in the pot.

    For yesterday's dinner I braised four thick center cut pork chops in
    tomato sauce till falling off the bone tender, second time in two
    weeks, but this time instead of yellow rice with black beans I served
    it with ziti. Got half left for tonight but think it'll keep another
    day so I'll have a big salad tonight.

    Sounds so out of the box thinking that it just might get their attention.

    Same for here. It got me thinking about braised pork and french dip
    sandwiches made from same. Yesterday I found some pork loin on sale so I
    fulfilled my fantasy. I browned the roast in some trimmed pig fat. Added
    a sofritto of onions, carrots, garlic, and parsley. Then some rosemary,
    bay, and sage and added a bit of flour and cooked it a bit. I then added
    some madeira and a blend of beef and chicken base in water. And finally
    a spoonful each of tomato paste and spicy brown mustard. After simmering
    for an hour and a half it was done to a turn. Tender but not dried out.
    Today's french dip was perfect and I'll be repeating dinner again to
    night. Despite my complaints the rain is much needed here in California.

    Yeah, that's what I'm thinkin' - and hopin'!...in these chili contests the
    standard mystery meat concoctions with ever-hotter hot sauce piled on are
    pretty much the norm.

    IIRC somebody last year made a *seafood* chili, it was liked I guess but not
    enough to win. A seafood chili is a bit too "out there" for many folks I
    guess...in the main peeps like "dark and rich" for chili, the duck and
    andouille might fit the bill nicely.
