Weekend Grub

Since the weather was getting cool and wonderfully Autumnally I decided to make short ribs. Since that is a two day project I had my Special Helper assist me for a few hours Saturday during the preparations


Once they were done and cooling down to go into the fridge to yummify over night I made some curried butternut squash soup for Saturday’s dinner


My Bride made some deee-lish grilled cheeses to round things out.

Man, I tell you, I spent at least 6 hours on my feet in the kitchen Saturday…must have cost me at least 4 bottles of wine.

But it was all worth it because the short ribs we polished off on Sunday night were exceedingly yum


on a bed of tarragon-flavored brown rice with some roasted brussel sprouts.

And lots of wine.

    You can’t post this without, at a minimum, links to the recipes!!!

    Oh muh gosh, that all looks so good! Claude is a lucky pup. If I believed in reincarnation, I’d want to come back as a dog in the Bingley household!

    Looks very tasty! Especially since Lord Claude received His tribute.

    And lots of wine.

    I’m with Agricola – where’s the recipe?

  5. Mr. Bingley says:

    I’ll try and get them pisted later, but they are modified versions from my absolute favorite cooking site: simplyrecipes.com

  6. JeffS says:

    “Pisted”? Yeah, you had LOTS of wine!

    LOL – what JeffS said…
    Oh, and would you mind sending that Autumnal weather down to SW FL? We’re still in the high 80’s.

    here’s the basic recipe for the short ribs, except I used 4lbs of boneless short ribs instead of 12 bone-in ones; i doubled the onion, quadrupled the celery and quintupled the carrots; and i used 8 cups of beef stock instead of the 6 of veal.

    But aside from that… 😉

  9. Mr. Bingley says:

    and here’s the soup. i really didn’t change this too much, other than adding a few carrots (this is what happens when you buy 10# at Costco: carrots go into everything!) and upping the curry and cumin amounts slightly…
