This is the last few recipes from my Triple Play Cook, I didn't even get to the Porchetta, but after this week the wife said, “no more playing with your pork, I'm getting sick of seeing and smelling your pork”. I thought this sounded like a personal problem!!!!

I have to agree with her, I'm just a bit sad that I did not get to do any of my Porchetta recipes that I wanted to try... the problem is once it's in my head I have to make it or it drives me nuts.

I have to make the recipe in order to get it out of my head, Yes its an illness and I have gone to Cookers Anonymous a few time but it don't help much.

I grilled some chicken last night and my mind started racing with Sundried Tomatoes, Fresh Basil, Sage, Oregano, Bacon... I just said to myself, “Self, the wife just wants grilled chicken... nothing else”, she wanted to make Grilled Chicken Ceasar Salads... I did end up rubbing one with a Chicken rub, oh well it's still progress.

  • Time to start the Egg Rolls. Broccoli Slaw and Red cabbage is sweated with a cup of Stock from the Wonton Soup until it starts to wilt... not to much.... you still want the veggies somewhat crispy.
