Damn - what's the hydration on that starter? Looks really runny...
When I stirred it up it was a thick sticky paste. Then I added 1 cup of flour and one cup of water. It will thicken up but it's fairly sticky and elastic now, by tomorrow it will not slide off the spoon at all
24 hours later and its really sticky and elastic

Cranked up the BBQ the other night for some Venison Burgers

Toasted sourdough buns,
Sauteed mushrooms,
Wilted spinach,
Walnut/sourcream/basil pesto,
Venison patties,
Cheese,
Tomato.

The walnut pesto works amazingly well with the Wild Venison.

The big veins of fat in the Pork was to much for my guests. The cloves of garlic were awesome. I will skip the mustard next time. Go Bills.

Confit turkey thighs with garlic, guajillo and ancho chiles.

Well, at least in about three hours.

Walnuts, pecans, peanuts and cashews roasted with salt, chipotle powder and rosemary.

This is half what we made. I love them.

"Hey how much garlic do we need for that?"

"Yes."

That must have smelled good.
I doubled the garlic amounts. We did similar last year (with legs vs. thighs) and it was delicious.

Mrs. Scrub and I both agreed on doubling the garlic this year.


(amounts and a few things tweaked to taste)

recipe link?

my first time making this. be careful to not overbake them on the first pass. did mine just a smidge over and it made the whole thing drier than wanted. enough cheese and sauce on top took care of that though.

i also think it would be easier to just make the whole thing as a lumpy mashed potato mess and then finish in the pan/oven after.

Mrs. Scrub makes a delicious focaccia.

Topped with a chunky veggie red sauce, dry cured pork shoulder, and provolone.

so we had dinner at a friends house last night. it was nice. they did a traditional roast turkey with butter, stuffing in the birds cavity with store bought bread, peas, gravy with diced giblets. Tonight we cooked up our apple cider brined turkey, mashed yukon gold potato's with broccoli, spices and fresh basil, stuffing was from my home made sour dough bread, with slivered almonds, mix of eggs, greek yogurt and turkey drippings, diced onion, celery and spices then baked . turkey dripping was the main constituent of the gravy. We are stuffed and we both agreed that a brined turkey is the way to go
