Mmm… Chicken

Roast your spatchcocked chicken over a bed of onion, carrots, and potatoes.  I dusted the bird with garlic, paprika, salt and pepper.

Instapot OxTail

I’m in the midst of clearing out some long-time freezer cruft and found a few ox tails that were vacuum sealed.  “Let’s see what  the pressure cooker will do with these” was my first thought.  Added carrots, celery, onions, and scallions and placed the frozen ox tails on that bed.  I also had some white wine that was past its prime but would work.  Various herbs from the bench garden and a can of beef broth went in, then the cooker was set for an hour on high.  The veggies were for the gravy and were discarded.

I went ahead and steamed some fresh carrots and potato chunks.

When the pressure was off the pot I cooled the oxtails and pulled the meat off them, not much there, and thickened the sauce.  Finally, the meat and veggies ware combined and rewarmed in the gravy.  Served with hot rolls.  Nom nom!

Random Wildlife

Caught a bobcat on the backyard camera a while back.  We just got around to reviewing the SD card the other day and saw him/her – not sure which.  We have seen both males and females at various times, and even a fleeting glimpse of a cub once.
