Sunday I ate

Breakfast: Made lemon scones. Basically, the recipe here, but without raspberries. Tessa couldn’t decide on lemon or vanilla glaze, so we made both.
Lunch: Grilled salami and cheese sandwich

Afternoon snack: Hand Pie. Some chocolate chips. Iced Tea
Dinner: Pulled pork. Tried a combination of sous vide and smoker based on Serious Eats. The texture and moisture of the meat was awesome, but it didn’t really pick up much smoke flavor. I used the gas grill with wood chips over the lighted burner on one end and the meat at the other end. Kept the grill temp around 280F. Wood just smoked for a few minutes, then went out. Next time (and there will be a next time for this technique) I’ll try the electric smoker. Two hours smoking. Also made the usual BBQ sauce from APL (Serious BBQ). Suzanne made sweet potato rolls and an awesome vinegar slaw.

Dessert: Vanilla cream pie.

Morning Snack: Chocolate covered almonds

Dinner: Pizza (it is Pi Day, after all)… made a sauce in the pressure cooker that was really good. Also saute’d some onions, along with red peppers, frozen corn, and prosciutto made for a good pie.
Dessert: Mini grasshopper pie

Here’s the sauce recipe:
Pressure Cooker Pizza Sauce

Olive oil
1/2 onion, chopped
1 1/2 tsp dried oregano
1 1/2 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
5 cloves garlic
2 14 oz cans tomatoes
1 tsp salt
2 tsp sugar

Heat olive oil until very hot in pressure cooker, then add onion, basic, oregano, and pepper flakes. Saute 5 minutes then add the garlic for another minute.
Add one can of tomatoes, then drain some juice out of the other can before adding. Toss in the salt and sugar, drop the lid on the pressure cooker, bring it up to pressure and cook for 15 minutes. Depressurize however you like, open lid and hit the stuff with a stick blender. If it’s watery, you could let it simmer some more.
This makes enough for 2 pizzas.
