Fog/Clouds ~ Turkeys ~ Perfect Prime Rib ~ Schwans Order ~ Steve & Barbara Voors ~ Bacon Wrapped Scallops

Good 52º cloudy morning.

Yesterday the sun tried to come through the clouds and fog

Amazing how warm we got yesterday.... 68º ! Tropical heat wave!

I heard a bunch of noise (gobbling!) out back and look who greeted me....

Show offs! Prancing because they know they won't be on the Thanksgiving table!!

If you have thought about cooking prime rib for Thanksgiving or Christmas or New Years... here is the foolproof way... comes out perfect every time!

Make a rub of salt and pepper and garlic and/or onion powder and or any other type of herb you like and you can even mix it with butter or olive oil .... rub onto roast. Put in roasting pan, turn oven to 550º. When oven is ready put in the roast and cook it 5 minutes for every pound for rare, 6 minutes per pound for medium. Then turn off the oven and DO NOT OPEN THE OVEN DOOR FOR 2 HOURS! Done to perfection.
Here is a formula: For me it was 3.75 lbs x 5 min. = 18.75 minutes or 19 minutes

Schwans showed up with my order.
.... pies, turkey breast, oven roasted chicken bites.

Chair, wine, TV..... Hawaii 5-0, NYPD Blue, and watched for the first time on Food Network was Alton Brown's show. He made some WEIRD stuffing for turkey or chicken. Cooked it in a cotton bag, stuffed into the bird. I always thought he was a good chef, but his show is STUPID! So is he!

National Cashew Day

Today is National Cashew Day! Whether you like them plain, salted, roasted, or coated in sugar, cashews are a delicious treat! Although cashews are popular in Thai, Indian, and Chinese cuisines, they are actually native to Brazil. They have also been widely cultivated in India and Africa ever since the Portuguese exported them during the 16th century.
Did you know that parts of the cashew tree can be used for medicinal and manufacturing purposes? Acid from the cashew nutshells is effective in healing tooth abscesses and the tree's seeds can be ground up into a powder and used as an anti venom for snake bites. The oil from the nutshells is used in brake linings as well as in rubber and plastic materials.
To celebrate National Cashew Day, snack on some cashews or cook them into your favorite recipe!
