    Carnitas sound good. Just going with simple and easy straight into a crockpot in the morning before I leave for work.

    Stuffed spinach chicken breast. One of the best chicken dishes I’ve ever ate. This was our second time having it and soooo good. Roasted taters and roasted broccoli covered with Parmesan

    One of the new steel skillets was delivered yesterday. After unpacking and looking it over, quite frankly I was impressed with the quality for under $20! I sure wasn't expecting a carbon steel skillet to rival good cast iron in weight, and feel but this one does. I was expecting something thinner and lighter. After a quick search I learned that steel skillet thickness varried from company to company. Just eyeballing the thickness (I'm pretty good at eyeballing) I'd say it's 3/16 th's thick, and weighs just under 3 1/2 lbs. I'm really liking using carbon steel once again, and I will probably add a 12 inch skillet soon. The bad part was I impulsively bought it, partly because of price, but mainly because of the misleading name "American Metalcraft". The skillet is Chinese manufacture.

    After a scrub and seasoning, it was so slick I almost lost a pone of cornbread just lightly tilting the pan takin it out of the oven!

    Anyway..
    I tried Alton's egg cooking method again this morning only substituting solidified bacon grease for the butter. I was almost sure that the skillet being as heavy as it was would overcook the eggs. I was wrong! If you like over easy eggs, these eggs were as absolute perfect as any I have ever had in my life! The whites were tender and perfectly cooked, and the yolks were warm with no hard cooked parts even on the bottom.

    I've been feeding the girls some cooked sweet taters and carrots as a treat over the winter.
