Baked Peaches

6 SERVINGS
AUTHOR: ERIN / WELL PLATED

Ingredients
3 fresh, very ripe peaches — halved and pitted
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons pure maple syrup or honey
1 tablespoon brandy — bourbon, or rum (optional)
1tablespoon coconut sugar or light brown sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon kosher salt
Vanilla ice cream, Greek yogurt, or heavy cream, for serving

Instructions
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly coat a 9x9-inch or similarly sized baking dish that’s large enough to hold the peach halves in a single layer with nonstick spray. Pick a dish that's sized to where your peaches fit comfortably side by side, but there isn't too much excess room around them. Arrange peaches cut-side up in the dish.
2. In a medium mixing bowl, stir together the oil, maple syrup, brandy, coconut sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt. Spoon the mixture over the peaches, filling the center and letting it run over the sides.
3. Bake peaches, uncovered, until the peaches are cooked through and fork-tender, about 30 minutes. Serve warm, topped with vanilla ice cream, Greek yogurt, or a pour of heavy cream, as desired.

Braised Pork Shanks

Serves: 6
Author: Tim Love

Ingredients
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons chili powder
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
6 pork shanks, about 1 1/2 pounds each
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
2 medium carrots, chopped
2 medium celery ribs, chopped
6 garlic cloves, minced
1 cup dry white wine
6 cups chicken stock or low-sodium broth
3 rosemary sprigs
2 bay leaves
2 thyme sprigs

Directions
1. In a large, sturdy resalable plastic bag, combine the flour and chili powder with 1 tablespoon each of salt and pepper. Add the pork shanks, one at a time, and shake to coat thoroughly.
2. In a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of the olive oil until shimmering.
3. Add 3 of the pork shanks and cook over moderately high heat until browned all over, about 10 minutes. Transfer the browned shanks to a deep, heavy casserole. Wipe out the skillet and brown the remaining 3 pork shanks in the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil; lower the heat if necessary. Add the pork shanks to the casserole.
4. Add the onion, carrots, celery and garlic to the skillet and cook over moderate heat until softened, about 5 minutes.
5. Add the wine and bring to a boil. Simmer until slightly reduced, about 2 minutes.
6. Pour the wine and vegetables over the pork.
7. Add the stock, rosemary, bay leaves and thyme, season with salt and pepper and bring to a boil.
8. Tuck the pork shanks into the liquid so that they're mostly submerged. Cover and cook over moderately low heat for 2 1/2 hours, or until the meat is very tender. Turn the pork shanks every 30 minutes to keep them submerged in the liquid.
9. Transfer the braised shanks to a large, deep platter, cover and keep warm.
10. Strain the liquid, pressing hard on the solids; discard the solids.
11. Return the liquid to the casserole and boil until reduced to 4 cups, about 20 minutes.
12. Spoon off the fat, pour the pork gravy over the braised shanks and serve.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Serves 4

Ingredients
1 1/2 pounds Brussels sprouts — trimmed and halved
4 cloves garlic — very roughly chopped (leave the pieces a bit chunky; add more if you live in a house of garlic lovers)
1½ tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons freshly ground or grated parmesan
Any of the optional additions from the blog post above: lemon, balsamic vinegar, herbs, red pepper flakes, etc.

Instructions
1. Place a rack in the upper third of your oven and preheat the oven to 400 degrees
2. Place the Brussels sprouts and garlic in the center of a large rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle with the olive oil and sprinkle with salt, pepper, and any other desired spice additions. Gently mix until the Brussels sprouts are evenly coated, then spread them into a single layer on the baking sheet. For even better crisping, flip the Brussels sprouts so that they are all cut sides down.
3. Bake for 10 minutes, then remove from the oven and stir in the parmesan cheese. Continue baking 10 to 20 additional minutes, until the Brussels sprouts are lightly charred and crisp on the outside and tender in the center. The outer leaves will be very dark too.
4. Watch carefully towards the end of the baking time, as the cooking time will vary based on the size of your sprouts. Remove from the oven. Season with additional salt and/or pepper to taste. Enjoy immediately or at room temperature.

• For Bacon Brussels Sprouts: Add the bacon pieces to the sheet pan right along with the brussels sprouts in Step 1.
• They will cook in about the same amount of time.
• For Balsamic or Lemon Brussels Sprouts: Drizzle the vinegar or lemon juice over the sprouts after removing them from the oven. Return the pan to the oven for 1 to 2 minutes, and then serve.
• Store leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Re-crisp in a 350 degree F oven or rewarm in the microwave.

Chicken with Creamy Sun Dried Tomato Sauce

Author: Nagi | RecipeTin Eats
Servings 4 – 5

Ingredients
750g / 1.5lb chicken thighs OR chicken breast, skinless and boneless
1/2 tsp salt
Black pepper
1/2 cup sun dried tomatoes, strips, drained of oil (Note 1)
2 tbsp oil from sun dried tomatoes jar (Note 1)
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup (125 ml) white wine (sub chicken broth)
3/4 cup (185 ml) chicken broth/stock, low sodium
3/4 cup (185 ml) thickened heavy cream
1/3 cup (30g) parmesan, very finely shredded (Note 2)
2 tsp Dijon mustard (Note 3)
1 cup basil leaves, packed (optional)

Instructions
1. Breast: Cut chicken in half horizontally to form 2 thin steaks.
2. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Heat oil from sun dried tomato jar in a large skillet over high heat.
3. Add the chicken and cook until golden brown on both sides - 6 minutes total for thigh or 4 minutes for breast. Remove onto a plate, keep warm.
4. Add the garlic and cook for 15 seconds until light golden.
5. Add wine. Bring to simmer and scrape the bottom of the skillet to mix all the brown bits into the wine.
6. Let the wine simmer for 1 minute or so until the smell of alcohol is gone which means it has evaporated.
7. Mix in mustard, then add the chicken broth, cream, parmesan and sun dried tomatoes.
8. Bring to simmer, then reduce heat to medium and simmer for 2 to 3 minutes until thickened. Stir regularly to dissolve parmesan cheese.
9. Taste sauce and add more salt and pepper if needed.
10. Stir through basil leaves, and then return chicken into pan. Spoon sauce over and simmer 1 minute.
11. Serve immediately! Great served over mashed potato, *Creamy Mashed Cauliflower or pasta. Or serve with bread on the side to mop up sauce!

Notes: 1. Sun Dried Tomatoes - I use the sun dried tomatoes that are marinated in olive oil, rather than the dried ones without oil. It comes in a jar and you can get it over the counter at delis too. I like using the oil to cook with for extra sun dried tomato flavour!
2. Parmesan - must use either parmesan that's finely grated you (pack the cup to measure) OR store bought finely shredded that looks like thin batons. Do NOT use sand-like store bought parmesan, it doesn't melt.
3. Mustard - The mustard is optional. I add it because it thickens the sauce slightly and also adds a touch of acidity to cut through the creaminess.

Ingredients
1 1/2 lbs beef chuck roast
1 1/2 tbsp lemon pepper seasoning, optional
1 package of dry onion soup mix
1 (10.5 oz) can of cream of mushroom soup (lower sodium)
1 (14 oz) can of beef broth (low sodium)

1. In a 5 quart slow cooker, combine dry onion soup mix, cream of mushroom soup and beef broth. Whisk to combine (don't worry if there are lumps, they will come out as it cooks).
2. Cut beef into about 1 1/2-inch cubes.
3. Sprinkle lemon pepper seasoning on beef.
4. Add meat to crock pot and give it all a good stir.
5. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours. You can serve this up just as it is when it is ready or you can easily thicken up the gravy part.
6. In a medium pot, melt two tablespoons of butter.
7. Once it is melted, add in about 3 heaping tablespoons of flour.
8. Whisk it together until smooth.
9. Then pour in 2 cups of the beef broth mixture into the butter/flour mixture.
10. Whisk it again until smooth, then bring the heat up to high (while whisking briskly the whole time.) It should quickly begin to thicken.
11. Once it gets to your desired thickness, take it off the heat and pour it back into your crock pot.
12. Then add the beef tips back in and stir well.
13. Serve over rice or mashed potatoes.

Summary of 16th August, 2019 by Darowil

The summary and following lists are a summary of last week's Tea Party and are of more value to the regulars here unable to keep up with all the chatter than to newbies - who are very welcome to join us at any time just by speaking up and making yourself known. All the pages etc refer back to last week's Tea Party - Knitting Tea Party, Friday 9th August, 2019 https://www.knittingparadise.com/t-622007-1.html


Sorlenna’s partner has had a holter monitor for 24 hours now waiting for results - there has been talk of the possibility of a pacemaker for Bub.

Sassafras found her lost phone - and was allowed to return the new one and even had help with resetting up her old phone. Saw her new doctor and her BP was sky high so added statin to her medications and a change in the FM medicine which is cheaper so hopefully will work as well as the Lyrica (or maybe better?). Seems to be settling though it was not a one off high reading.

Caren asked for prayer for Chrissy’s Kegan who has been rushed to hospital. Has a pre-existing heart condition. Kept overnight and then sent home. Has had more tests but still waiting for results.

janallyn is recuperating from surgery.

Gwen has seen her RA specialist re her severe back pain. Changing medications, course of steroids, an MRI and referral to a neurologist or spinal specialist. DH's finger is much better but he now has sores around his mouth - likely from the antibiotics so they are being treated with more antibiotics!

Swedenme had problems seeing during the week so had her eyes checked - they are healthy though she does need new glasses

Thank you for the new start Sam and Summary Ladies!

Sonja this pink and white is beautiful. Some little girl is going to be so lucky to wear this.

Did get the MRI done but doubt I'll get any results until Monday at the soonest. I made sure I had taken my pain meds topped off with the allowed dose of Aleve before going so getting there and all went well.

Tomorrow DH and I are going to a place called #3 Railroad Street. They do weekly potlucks and have different bands playing. The band tomorrow is a group of our friends; they play blues. I'm taking a gluten free veggie lasagna for the potluck. A knitting friend and her DH are going to join us there. Just going to dose myself up with pain meds and enjoy it!
