    Every Friday, I have a bunch of friends over at the house and we cook out in the backyard on our charcoal grill. Two Fridays ago, we bought about 7 lbs of ground beef and made giant burger patties out them. We stuffed them with red onions, cajun seasoning, garlic, gouda cheese, and baby portobello mushrooms that I'd sauteed in butter with garlic, salt, and pepper.

    We did the same with a couple pounds of ground turkey and then threw both sets of patties onto the flame. We sprinkled on some more cajun and additional seasonings and then topped them off with jalepeno-havarti and cheddar cheeses.

    While those were grilling over the charcoal, we set whole portobello mushroom caps into the smoker after seasoning them with garlic, salt, pepper, and olive oil. After the meats were cooked and the mushrooms were properly smoked, we then enjoyed our epic burgers on kaiser and onion rolls.

    Last Friday I grilled a couple mahi mahi and salmon filets liberally sprinkled with cajun and a couple other seasonings. Though the salmon was good, the mahi was the real star.

    Cape Cod,

    Take one pound of fresh cod unsalted, cook the fish in a fratatta pan in a tablespoon of lemon juice and sprinkle a half teaspoon of sea salt and a dash of pepper, olive oil preferred. Then pour in a two cups of water, add two sliced up macintosh apples and a cup of dried cranberries or fresh if you can get them. Then sprinkle a teaspoon of cinnamon over everything and let it simmer on medium heat for ten minutes until the water has boiled off. Stir everything occasionally to avoid burning. When done, scoop into bowls and add cubed white cheddar cheese or fontina cheese and let them cool a bit and serve.


    came up with that last night and it was good. The fish break up over time and stirring things together and then adding the cheese gives the fish a sweet but delectable taste.

    As someone who lives on Cape Cod, I will have you know that we do not prepare our fish in any way near to that.

    Oh no, I called it Cape cod because apples and cranberries were found on the cape, and cod was once fished off of cape cod. So using the ingredients worked in the sense of taking a meal that a fisherman could make with simple ingredients minus the lemon juice. It is similar in style to Chicken Cachitiore. That meal actually is an italian hunters meal. Basically the hunter would gather the local vegetables and cook the birds he had caught in the same pot.

    I was gonna say that. I spend every autumn on the Cape, and although I don't eat fish, I know how ish gets done up there. Usually, I just settle for getting a sandwich in Sandwich, though.

    Absolutely not. I hardly eat there, either. There is a good Thai restaraunt there, though. We stay in Barnstable. I get my head clear for awhile, get some work done, watch the leaves change, eat goldfish crackers while sitting in rocking chairs on the porch, complain about our social security... you know, old people stuff.

    I made these lambchops with olive & pistachio tapenade, rice pilaf, and asparagus the other day. The fancy plating is courtesy of my mom
