    Used my La Chamba casserole to make Ciorbă De Perisoare - rice and meatball soup. This casserole does a marvelous job of sauteing without burning. Most of the veggies came fresh from my garden. I still have tomatoes and peppers on the vine, amazing for this time of year around here. Rice, onion, garlic, egg, cooked rice and ground pork beef mix. Chopped veggies. Added the meatballs to the stock and veggies. Served with some micro greens, they are still growing too. There is a lot of stock in comparison to the veggies. I did put a serving or cooked rice in the bottom of the bowl before adding the soup. This soup is really tasty in fact I had two bowls and had to resist a third. This soup is based upon https://www.saveur.com/article/Recipes/Ciorba-De-Perisoare-Pork-and-Rice-Meatball-Soup

  7. La Chamba Portabella Stew

    This was my first use of my new clay pot and chose this vegetarian stew recipe because I love mushrooms. Last night did a little seasoning of the new pot with onions and garlic. Today it was onto the cook. Unfortunately I needed 3T of tomato paste and there was none to be found in the kitchen. I added 1T Harissa and a little tomato sauce. I should have only added 1/2 T Harissa. Here it is on the KK @ 290F for several hours until the carrots and potatoes were cooked. It is done. Served.

    I wish I could say that Jon, but we had at least 2 we're the birdbaths were frozen over. Ice 1/4 or more thick.[emoji21]
  9. What to do with left over pulled pork

    That ice cream bar sure caught my eye.

    Thanks, Bruce, after a few more days I should love it.;) Next time I will be more careful with that Harissa.

    Tyrus, you bought back some of my most favourite childhood memories. Thanks a million for that. I did not pick these, which I could have had that fun. When we were young my parents and sometimes my grandparents would go mushroom picking. I absolutely loved it, couldn't wait to get home and have those gems fried up and I'd always make a fried mushroom sandwich. Awesome stuff.
  12. My first pizza

    Those pizzas are looking very tasty.[emoji7] I have been tossing the idea of pizza bake around in my mind and they just may have pushed me over the edge.[emoji847]

    I think I'll try boneless skinless chicken thighs next time. or maybe a small spatchcock chicken. Watch the water level or you'll have burnt juices.

    Thanks, Bruce. The orange veggie is squash but I'll have to admit it does look like sweet potato.:) tquando, thanks. You would have been disappointed in this skin, not at all crispy. It had the sauce on it for the whole cook as well as a water bath underneath. Right now it is in shorthand that even I can hardly read. It is a recipe from a Chinese friend.:) I will write it up today.
  17. KK Rocks!

    Stiles. I've tried that with some of yours and some how I think sitting at the table would have been much much better.
  18. outback spirit inspired pulled pork

    Spring fever hit Aussie and he skipped the pixs and is now serving leftovers. Good news, the leftovers even look awesome.

    AKM, I hope you are taking pixs of this rotisserie cook and one thing for sure that chicken will be very moist.
