Hello everybody! This is The Daily Bone Special Yum Yum Food Report. I'm your salivating doggie reporter Chester L. W. Spaniel. Today I'm featuring some local Western New York favorites.
I'm not wasting any time. Let's get right down to business. Here is a delicious, sweet, juicy pear. Along with it we have a grilled sandwich with Swiss cheese, tuna, and roasted red peppers. (Ghostwriter stole this recipe from Fox's Deli, except she used Pain de Champagne bread from Wegmans instead of rye bread.)
Next we have a wonderful dinner with a grilled Zweigle's red hot (a WNY favorite!) with locally grown corn on the cob from Gro-Moore Farm, and steamed vegetables.
Here's a mouth-watering grilled pork chop that has been marinated in State Fair Spedie sauce, with spanakopitas, and a salad with dolmades (stuffed grape leaves) feta cheese, tomatoes, and Greek salad dressing.
On Sunday we had a family dinner. Ryan was quite happy to be eating a piece of Pizza Corner pizza with lots of crunchy, fresh vegetables, and a plate of pickles. There were also Buffalo style chicken wings with bleu cheese dressing on the side.
Ghostwriter tried out a new recipe for the pears from our tree, but she didn't want to do any baking. These are going to be caramelized pears. She dipped the cut sides in a mixture of sugar and cinnamon and cooked them face down in a big pot. When the sugar started to brown, she added a little water and let them steam a bit. Yummy!
Most of the pears from our back yard tree got ripe super fast. Ghostwriter simply peeled them and poached them with a little sugar and cinnamon. Now we can store them in the fridge.
|Sweet yummy dreams everyone!|
