Cookin' crazy

I have just gone overboard making things this weekend. Usually I am like just fry it and put it on a plate lets eat but these past few days have found me doing a little more.

I made a simple tomatoe, basil and mozzarella salad.

Then I made some mofongo. Which is just fried and mashed plantains typically served like in a ball like pile mixed with pork rinds or shrimp or chicken and served with a gravy, except I tried to make mine like a napolean. The flavor was nice but the picture is blurry.

And if that wasn't enough I was making sausage at the same time. Ground pork with rosemary, thyme and roasted garlic. These I am going to let dry for a while in my little fridge.

I will post an update when they are ready.

And then, yeah there is more, the next morning it was eggs benedict with more gravlax. Yup I made another one this time with cilantro and scallion as the herb acoutrement.

Happy eating and I hope everyone had a chance to enjoy the long weekend. Oh and on a side note I drove out to see some friends in Connecticut on Saturday/Sunday and they gave me a Venison loin, so I will also update on what happens with that.
