My day earlier was ruined today, but I've been making up for it tonight! I'll be damned if I don't enjoy Sunday somehow!
Trying to cook all this before some friends arrive, and then we're just going to hang out in the backyard, watch the sun set, and chill out on this warm night!
Coconut battered shrimp!! With sweet potato shoestring fries! And for dessert, flourless chocolate cake/torte (which is basically solid, pure chocolate BUTTER...imagine eating refrigerated butter, that's the texture...but it's chocolate).
edit: btw I'm cheating. All this shit I bought from Whole Foods, so it's really just a matter of me frying em up.

This doesn't look too exciting, but it is smooth, spicy, delicious apple butter. My hands are sore from peeling and chopping about ten pounds of apples.

I've been doing a 50/50 ratio of fruit to veg. Baby spinach and kale for the veg; banana, orange, pineapple, apple for the fruit. I've been adding fresh ginger too, it's a strong enough taste to cut the vegetable flavor. Honestly, the veggie flavor is minimal.

I've made better, but it's still great comfort food. I think I'll make it with a substantial gravy next time.

simple smooth tomato soup from two types of tomato with a whole lot of white wine in it
with that: roasted whole grain bread with an entire tooth of garlic rubbed to its surface, put on a few drops of olive oil and serrano ham and/or a cheese of your choice....voilà!

Fillet of pork filled with Pesto Rosso wrapped in Parma ham
I'll try that today. But I'll serve rosemary potatoes and a bouqet of salad, arugula, cucumber and radish.
Still need a sauce :/ Hope something comes to mind in the next 3 hours

The meat looks good, Entropie.
I'm going to try baking my first pie tomorrow. A squash-apple pie, uncovered, that I made up. Should I add some honey, or some vanilla?You can't spell "justice" without ISTJ.

My kids just made a "Graveyard Cake"
Brownie for the cake, chocloate icing, crushed Oreos for "dirt", gummy worm + pumpkin candy accents, and an army of homemade tombstones, ghosts, zombies, and bats - YUMMY!
